INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
The type of information we collect from you depends on what activities you are carrying out on our website, whether you are logged in or not and whether you are making a purchase. However, we (or third parties on our behalf) will collect information that may include:
- Full name
- Email address
- Address, including postcode
- Telephone number
- Credit/debit card information (card type, number, expiration date, card security number, name on the card and billing address), although we never store these and they are only used when making a payment.
- Communication submitted to use (for example, via firstname.lastname@example.org or any other means of transferring information, data or content to us)
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We, or third parties on our behalf, may use your information for one or more activities, including for the following reasons:
- to check that a credit card is valid
- to pay your account
- to send you products
- to recommend other products you may like
- to communicate with you on The Pure Option™ related matters

WHAT WE USE YOUR INFORMATION FOR
The principal purposes for which we collect and store your personal information are to process your orders and deliver products, authorise payment, bill you, respond to your enquiries, get in touch with you about other products and promotional offers, recommend products which we think might be of interest to you, and generally maintain the account you hold with us, together with improving our website.
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect personal information from you only (i) where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, (ii) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights; or (iii) with your consent. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

By law, you have a number of rights when it comes to your personal data, including::
The right to be informed. You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. This is why we are providing you with the information in this policy.
The right to correction. You are entitled to have your information corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete. You can do this through your account page or by contacting us at the email address below.
The right to erasure. This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there is no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.
The right to restrict processing. You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.
The right to data portability. You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs, safely and securely without affecting its usability.
The right to object to processing. You have the right to object to certain types of processing, including processing for direct marketing (i.e., if you no longer want to be contacted with potential opportunities). You can do this by emailing us at email@example.com
The right to lodge a complaint. You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process your personal data with your national data protection regulator. In the United Kingdom, this is the Information Commissioner’s Office. Further information can be found at: www.ico.org.uk.
The right to withdraw approval. You have the right to withdraw your consent to processing at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal data with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw consent to us using your personal data for marketing purposes. You can do this by any of the following means:

Usually we act on requests and provide information free of charge, but we are permitted to charge a reasonable fee to cover our administrative costs of providing the information in certain circumstances, including in the case of any baseless or excessive/repeated requests, or where further copies of the same information are requested.
Alternatively, we may be entitled to refuse to act on the request.
Please consider your request responsibly before submitting it. We will respond as soon as we can. Generally, this will be within one (1) month from when we receive your request but, if the request is going to take longer to deal with, we will come back to you and let you know.
Please note; when opting out you may continue to receive some information from us where this is already in the communication pipeline, but this will typically be the case for up to 1 day after the date on which you update your account.

SECURITY AND RETENTION
We have implemented technology and security features, as well as strict internal guidelines, to safeguard to an appropriate extent the privacy of your personal information from loss, alteration, unauthorised access or improper use. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed, and we will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available. Whilst we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, alteration, unauthorised access or improper use of information will never occur, we use all reasonable efforts to prevent it.
While we make every effort to ensure that your information is secure on our system, you should bear in mind that submission of information over the internet is never entirely secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security, integrity, availability or retention of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
Your account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. You can play an important role in keeping your personal information secure by maintaining the confidentiality of your password used on our Site. We recommend that you change your password from time to time for additional security. Please advise us immediately if there is any unauthorised use of your account by any other internet user or any other breach of security.
Only key members of our personnel have access to personal information. Backups are run to prevent loss of information and our internet servers are housed in secure facilities.
It is advisable to close your browser when you have finished your user session to help ensure that others do not access your personal information if you use a shared computer or a computer in a public place.
Information may be retained in countries outside of the European Economic Area, including the USA. We will ensure that any information transferred outside of the European Economic Area will be adequately protected. You agree to the transfer of your information.
