We will not use your personal information to advertise or communicate promotional offers, directly or indirectly, using direct mail marketing or telemarketing, unless you give us permission to do so. We allow personally identifiable information to be combined with previously collected non-identifiable information with the consumer’s prior affirmative consent (“opt-in”). We do not create personally identifiable profile information unless consumers are notified and given an opportunity to opt out at the time and place that the personally identifiable information is collected. We will collect personally identifiable profile information only from web site operators with which we have contractual relationships. We will provide reasonable access to profile information that is personally identifiable or is associated with personally identifiable information.
We may enable other users of our site and third parties to view or receive information from your profile, subject to your permission to share this information. We may disclose such information to third parties if you consent to such disclosure. With your permission, we may publish or distribute selected information about you, such as your recommendations, interests and other data of possible interest to other users of our site and third parties.
For the purpose of operating our business, we may transfer information between Wellspring and our preferred service providers who use that information only to conduct Wellspring business. For example, they may handle our credit card processing, shipping, data management, email distribution, market research, information analysis and promotions management. We provide our preferred service providers with the information they need to perform their services and work with them to respect and protect your information.
We may provide your information to our wholly-owned companies and affiliates, which may be outside the United States. We may also sell or transfer your personal information to third parties in connection with any merger, acquisition, reorganization, change in capital structure or sale of all or substantially all of the assets of Wellspring.
On rare occasions, we may disclose specific information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, when required by law, to enforce our website policies, or to protect our or others' rights, property, or safety. We may also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation. We do not provide information to these agencies or companies for marketing or commercial purposes.
Protecting Your Information
We use a variety of security measures, including sophisticated encryption and authentication tools to maintain the safety of your personal information. Regardless of these efforts, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Your personal information is contained behind secure networks and is only accessible to a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. Credit card numbers allow a user to subscribe to (and thus pay for) our business service. All credit card information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be accessed only as stated above. We will use the information for purposes of processing and completing only those transactions you approve, and the information will be disclosed to third parties only as necessary to complete a specific transaction. This data is protected and stored on our behalf by third party service providers. When you subscribe to the Service credit card data will be immediately encrypted, used once in a single authorization process and securely stored by the third party service provider. We are never able to access, see or display more than the card type, the last 4 digits of the credit card number, the name of the holder and the expiration date. The service providers do not save the CVV codes. Credit card numbers are used by service providers to initiate secure payments through the specific payment gateway at certain other service providers on a single occasion or a regular basis. Service providers charge the credit card and deposits money to our account. All processes adhere to PCI-DSS Level 1.
Our site may contain links to the websites of one or more third parties. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other websites.
We want you to feel confident using the Wellspring website but we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Please refer to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's web site for information on how to protect yourself from identity theft.
