Privacy Policy

THE SOCIAL LIFE PRIVACY POLICY

We, The Social Life (referred to herein as “The Social Life”, “we”, “us” and “our”), are strongly committed to protecting your privacy and providing a safe online experience for all of our users and subscribers while offering the highest quality user experience to them. Because we gather certain types of information about and from you, our users and subscribers, in order to fulfill your requests and better serve your needs, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and use of this information. This Privacy Policy discloses what information we gather, how we use it, how to correct or change it, and what steps we take to safeguard personal information provided to us both online and offline. Please read the complete Privacy Policy below, as well as our Terms of Use, and contact us if you have any questions.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

You can use http://www.thesociallife.com or our affiliates’ websites, (collectively, the “Site”) without having an account. You can visit the Site, read articles and other materials, browse merchandise, and check on offerings without giving us any personally identifiable information. You can also contact us about a particular video, picture, audio file or other posting without having an account. Certain other activities on the Site, such as posting comments or product reviews and signing up to receive e-mail updates from The Social Life and our affiliates and partners, do not require you to register for an account, but may require that you provide certain personal information such as your name and/or e-mail address. Still other activities, including purchasing products through the Site, may require you to register for a user account. To register, you must create a user account, which requires you to provide your e-mail address and select a password. The password you select is used to protect your account from unauthorized access.

Whether or not you register, in order to provide users and subscribers with the most efficient and enhanced personalized service and attention, we may request information about you in certain circumstances and collect certain information automatically. We also use contact lists and other information, which are obtained from third-parties. For the convenience of all of our customers and to better serve you, we create and maintain a customer account that includes all the collected personal information we may have with respect to an individual. This Privacy Policy also applies to your use of any The Social Life page, platform or application owned, manager or run by a third party, subject to such third party’s applicable policies.

HOW WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We use information you provide to fulfill your requests and improve our Site, products and services. We may, from time to time, produce reports for advertisers, sponsors and vendors containing anonymous, aggregate information about our users and subscribers, such as demographic, age and online usage information. This information allows us to provide content and offers that are most relevant to our users and subscribers and to work more closely with advertisers. We do not include any personally identifiable information of our users in these reports. We use personal information so that we may display or send custom, personalized content to our Site visitors and send newsletters, mail, e-mails, features, promotional material, surveys and other updates, information or offers to our users and subscribers. From time to time, we may also establish business relationships with other persons or entities that we believe to be trustworthy and whose privacy policies are generally consistent with our privacy policy (“Choice Partners”). In such cases we might share and cross-reference information, including personal information about you that will enable our Choice Partners to contact you regarding products and services that you might find of interest. We may also combine that information with publicly available information and information which we receive from our Choice Partners or other thirdparties. We use the total mix of information to enhance and personalize your shopping experience with us, communicate with you about our products and events that may be of interest to you, and for other promotional purposes as we determine from time to time.

HOW WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION

Personal information is available to The Social Life and the technical and fulfillment agents, partners and consultants who make our Site, products and services available to you. Anonymous information is available to our advertisers, sponsors and promotional and business partners. We share your personal information with third-parties only as described below.

THE SOCIAL LIFE AND ITS AGENTS

The Social Life may access anonymous, aggregate demographic data and any personal information you provide for internal marketing purposes, including sending you notices of sweepstakes winners, new websites, services or products we offer and any other orders. To facilitate subscriptions, catalog requests and orders, The Social Life will cache your order information, and create an authorization with a merchant account (e.g., your credit card company). Website hosting firms, technical and database consultants, advertising agencies, order processing partners, customer service partners and fulfillment firms, including firms assisting us in offering contests, sweepstakes and promotions, may have access to personally identifiable information in the course of making our products and services available. All companies working for and with The Social Life must comply with our privacy policies, and are not permitted to sell your information to third-parties or to use it except as authorized by us and you, or as permitted or required by law.

PARTICIPATING VENDORS

We may offer opportunities to make purchases online from special participating vendors. If we do so, we will also give participating manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers or distributors the order information and authorization for the merchant bank. Any time you order from a participating vendor, that vendor will automatically have all the information related to the order. Participating vendors have their own privacy policies, and they may use that information to advise you directly of other products and offerings that they provide. The Social Life is not responsible for these third-parties’ respective privacy policies, and we urge you to inquire about their information collection and use practices. In addition, all vendors will receive the same anonymous, aggregate data that our advertisers receive.

CREDIT CARD COMPANIES

As in any transaction, your credit card company will have all relevant information about the name of the vendor, item(s) purchased, date, total cost and other information necessary to process the transaction. The Social Life will not otherwise provide any personal data to your credit card company without your permission.

ADVERTISERS, SPONSORS AND PROMOTIONAL AND BUSINESS PARTNERS

We share anonymous, aggregate demographic information (such as gender, age, income, hobbies, interests, etc.), and anonymous information obtained from cookies and similar technologies, with our advertisers, sponsors, promotional and business partners, and participating vendors. No personally identifiable information is disclosed to any of these third-parties in providing these reports. Credit card numbers, bank account numbers and passwords are not shared with advertisers, sponsors or promotional partners, and are only shared with the specific vendors with whom you place an online order. Information which we obtain in non-Internet transactions or sweepstakes is handled differently. We may share offline contact information with third-parties, who may send you offers or information about their products or services. You must opt out if you do not wish to receive information from third-parties or us by mail. Your e-mail address is not shared with third-parties unless you agree to receive information, by opting in, from third-parties. In other words, we may extend e-mail offers to users or subscribers on behalf of our business partners about a particular product or service that may be of interest to you, but only if you have indicated that you would like to receive these offers. If you wish to receive such offers, we will not share or disclose your name or e-mail address to those business partners, but will send you the information or offers on their behalf. As a result, although The Social Life may receive a fee from our business partners for this service, The Social Life sends the offers so that your personal information is never shared with any outside third-party. Of course, you may opt out of receiving these offers at any time.

Sometimes we will give you the opportunity to opt in to receive e-mail offers from third parties not affiliated with The Social Life. If you decide to accept these offers, we will provide, with your consent, your contact information to the third-party. On our Site, visitors will also have opportunities to sign up directly with certain advertisers and sponsors to enter contests or sweepstakes or to receive e-mail updates and other information directly from them. Third-party vendors and advertisers will also use technical and other consultants. We urge visitors to review carefully the privacy policies of these firms. The Social Life is not responsible for the privacy policies and procedures of any third-party.

You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose information, personal or otherwise, online in any community area (whether through the Site or any other service available online), that information can be collected and used by others. For example, if you use chat, forums, bulletin boards, blogs or message boards, or if you post personal information online (such as your e-mail address), you may receive unsolicited messages from others. The Social Life has no control over this use of your personal information.

IMPORTANT NOTE

We reserve the right to use or disclose any information without notice or consent for the following purposes: as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request; to conduct investigations of consumer complaints or possible breaches of law; to protect the integrity of our Site and our property; to protect the safety of our visitors or others; to fulfill your requests; or to cooperate in any legal investigation.

USE OF COOKIES

Your web browser offers so-called “cookies” which, if you allow their use, store small amounts of data on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information about you and therefore cannot be used to identify you personally. However, cookies assist us in tracking which of our features you like best and make it easier to use the Site. We use a cookie in order to retain the contents of your shopping cart while you browse the Site. Cookies also enable us to customize our content according to your preferences. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your browser. Although our Website is viewable even if you disable the cookie function on your browser, if you disable cookies, some advanced and customized features or offerings will not be available to you. Our third-party advertisers may also use cookies.

SECURITY

The Social Life uses security measures in order to protect from the loss, misuse and alteration of any information under our control. All orders are transmitted over secure internet connections using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption technology.

HOW YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We offer several ways for you to update your contact information and/or change your preferences.

  • If you have a user account at our Site, you may be able to log on and update or change your contact or account information.
  • You may unsubscribe to any of our e-mail updates by following the unsubscribe instructions in the body of any e-mail message.
  • You may write to us and update your contact information or ask that we not share your personal contact information with third-parties at: The Social Life, 1930 E 15th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90021, Attn: Privacy Coordinator. In those instances, we will retain your information in a “do not promote” file in our database.
  • You may also contact us via email at info@thesociallife.com.

We will take commercially reasonable steps to implement your opt-out requests promptly; but you may still receive promotional information from us by mail for up to 60 days due to printing and mailing schedules, and up to 10 days for e-mail. You may also continue to receive information from those third-parties to whom your information was previously disclosed pursuant to their respective privacy policies.

THIRD PARTY LINKS

In an attempt to provide you with increased value, we may include third party links on our Site. These linked sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our Site and welcome any feedback about these linked sites (including if a specific link does not work).

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

Minors under the age of 18 are prohibited from using the Site or being Members. With respect to compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, which regulates collection of information from children under the age of 13, please note that as minors under 18 are prohibited from using the Site or being Members, we do not intentionally collect or maintain information through the Site from those we actually know are under the age of 13, no part of our web site is designed to target or attract anyone under the age of 13, and no one under the age of 18, including anyone under the age of 13, should use the Site, become a Member, or provide any personal information.

CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

We may amend our privacy policy at any time by posting a revised version on our website at [http://www.thesociallife.com/pages/privacy]. If there are changes that may be important to our users we will notify you using the contact information you provide, or when you next execute a transaction on the Site. We last modified this privacy policy on August 21, 2011, which is the effective date of this policy.
