WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION IS COLLECTED AT OUR WEBSITE AND HOW IS IT USED?
1. Information Collected Directly from You and Others through this Site
We collect personal information directly from you to do all the things typically associated with electronic and mobile commerce Websites. Examples of the information we collect include name, address, telephone number, mobile phone number, email address, personal preferences, credit card number, purchase and ordering information, demographic information, and sizing information.
This information is collected on various pages throughout the site. For example, during the process of creating an account, you submit basic information so that we may bill your order to the correct address, ship your products to the right location and send a request for payment to bank that has issued your credit card. The information we collect is typical of any online commerce experience from the details of your email preference settings to your online experience and your participation in any special offers, sweepstakes, promotions and special events.
We collect information about you. And, when you provide it, we collect information about those you know. For example, we collect your gift recipient's contact information to process your gift orders. We use this information to do things like: Process your online orders, open an online account at your request, personalize your online experience with content and offers that are tailored to your interests, provide customer service (whether through your request or as follow up to your order), include you in surveys and contests, enable you to post images and comments, facilitate networks of online social activity as focused on Clean Spirited products or services, enable you to interact with third-party content service providers, whether by linking to their sites, viewing their content within our Web environment, or by viewing our content within their Web environment, market our products and services to you when appropriate.
2. Information We Observe or Collect through Technology
We collect navigational information, from browser type and version, service-provider identification, IP address, to the site from which you came, and the site to which you bounce next. Navigational information is for the most part anonymous in the sense that it does not contain your personal identifiable data (name, address, phone, email). However, we may associate this navigational information with your personal information if you provide it.
Cookies and Clear Gifs

3. Information Others Observe or Collect through Technology
Third-party service providers help us analyze our visitor's site and purchase preferences, and may help us deliver ads to you about our products through banner ads when you visit other websites (often referred to as "online network advertising"). The following provides more information about these service providers and the choices you have with respect to their services.
We contract with analytics companies to better understand your use of our Websites, and Web capabilities like embeddable widgets. They accomplish this by using some or all of the technologies described in Information We Observe or Collect Through Technology.
We contract with third-party advertising companies that, in turn, collect non-personally identifying information by placing cookies on your browser when you visit us here. These companies may use information about your visit only to deliver relevant advertising to you during your online browsing experience. They are not provided with any personal information, such as name, address, credit card information, e-mail address, or telephone number. These companies also provide this information to us which we, in turn, use to gauge how effective our ads are.

HOW DOES THIS WEBSITE INTERACT WITH THIRD-PARTY CONTENT?

Please view their terms of service and privacy policies if you have any question about their practices.
Sweepstakes, Contests, and Survey Sites
Third-Party Rewards or Membership Programs
We may interact with certain unrelated companies that offer their customers memberships to participate in programs, which may include rewards for purchases from us. If you become a member of one of these programs or purchase something from us at this Website through such a program, we may provide the company administering the membership program enough information about you or your purchase (like contact information, transaction date, transaction amount, and order number), to enable it to honor your membership. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of the companies sponsoring these membership programs. Their terms, conditions, and policies apply to any information that's provided to them to further their programs.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE SHARE WITH THIRD PARTIES?
We use third-party "back-office" contractors to help handle parts of our business because of their expertise, resources, or scale. They help us do things like fulfill orders, process payments, monitor site activity, maintain databases, administer and monitor emails, administer and send mobile messages, and provide consulting services. Contractors may also assist us in hosting microsites and mobile Websites where you may provide personal information about you and others you know; and where they may observe information about you in the same way as described above (see What Personal Information Is Collected At Our Website, and How Is It Used?)
CleanSpirited.com is largely a drop ship website. In other words, we submit an order to a larger supplier or brand that will fulfill the shipment directly from their warehouse. This allows us to pass cost savings to our customers for popular items. The merchants will only receive your shipping information and any other details necessary to fulfill your order including shipping address, ship to name, products and quantities ordered, shipping methods. We will not share your information in order to allow any third party merchant to send you marketing materials and ask that you report such instances immediately to our customer service department should you find yourself in this unlikely circumstance.
Law Enforcement and Emergency Response
We may disclose specific information about our Web-site visitors if we have a good-faith belief that it's necessary or authorized under the law to protect our customers, the public, or our business.
Sale or Merger
In the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business assets, consumer information may be one of the business assets that are transferred as part of the transaction.
WHAT CHOICES DO YOU HAVE OVER HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS USED?
If at any time you'd like to stop future delivery of our email offers, simply follow the removal instructions located at the bottom of each message or complete the removal from e-mail form. This will stop future email offers from us, but won't stop operational or transactional messages such as email confirmations of your online orders, or customer service communications. We may occasionally provide you with the opportunity to opt-in to receive email messages from third parties. If you do opt-in, we'll share your e-mail address with the specific third party with which you have opted in. Please review their privacy policies to see how they treat your personal information.
If you've signed up for mobile messaging (e.g., SMS and MMS) offers but later decide you no longer wish to receive them, simply follow the opt-out instructions included in the mobile message.
