You may be able to purchase Power To The People products on this website. To process your purchase, we ask for information such as your name, billing and shipping address, telephone number, e-mail address, and payment card information. We use this information to process your purchase, confirm your order, and deliver the items to you. If you give us permission, we also may use your contact information to communicate with you about our products, services, and promotions.
Through the “my account” feature, you can store billing and shipping information so you won’t have to enter it again when you make another purchase on this site. You also can store credit card information and details of your past purchases. In addition, you can save your credit card information on your account for faster checkout. To use this feature, we ask you to provide your credit card information and the corresponding billing address.
You can also use the “my account” feature to create a wishlist of products you want and share your list with friends and family via e-mail. If you choose to share your list, we ask for your name and e-mail address and the recipient’s e-mail address. This information is used only to e-mail your list to your desired recipients.
You can create and save an address book on your account. You can delete entries in the address book at any time. We will not use or disclose the information you delete from your address book.

Information We Collect by Automated Means
When you visit our website, we obtain certain information by automated means, such as the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet and the pages accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our website to our visitors and understand what products and services you might prefer. We collect this information through various means, such as “cookies” and “web beacons.” We and others (such as our service providers) may collect personal information about our visitors’ online activities over time and across third-party websites.
Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie and how to disable existing cookies. Without cookies, however, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our site features. For example, if you turn off cookies or refuse them, you will not be able to make purchases on the site.
Certain pages on this website contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). Web beacons are used for internal purposes, such as to obtain the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, and the type of browser used to view the page. We also retain service providers who use web beacons to assess the effectiveness of our e-mail communications and learn what pages our visitors viewed.
When you buy products through our website, we ask you for information we need to process your purchase or provide you with the services you requested. Depending on the payment method you use, and as permitted by applicable law, we may ask for information such as your name, mailing address, telephone number and/payment card information. We also collect information about your purchase, such as the items you bought, the price of the items, the payment method you used, and if the product was on sale. We use this information to process your transaction.
Customer Satisfaction Surveys
When you buy products on our website, we may ask you to complete a customer satisfaction survey. If you choose to do so, you may provide information such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, age, gender and other demographic information, in addition to your comments. Providing any of this information is optional. We use the information you provide to improve our products and services, and enhance your shopping experience.

Information We Share
We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information about our customers, except as described here. We may share the personal information you provide to us with our worldwide affiliates and joint venture partners for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice.
We also may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process (such as a court order), (ii) in response to a request by law enforcement authorities, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity. We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal information you have provided to us in a manner that is consistent with our Privacy Notice. Following such a sale or transfer, you may contact the entity to which we transferred your personal information with any inquiries concerning the processing of that information.
How We Protect Personal Information
We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect the personal information you provide on this website or in our Stores against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use and other unlawful forms of processing. We use Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) technology to protect the transmission over the Internet of your payment card data. You can check the security of your connection by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure site, the first characters of the site address change from “http” to “https.” If you are using a web browser or firewall that does not permit communications through secure sites, you will not be able to make purchases on our site.
Access and Correction
Subject to applicable law, we provide you with access to personal information we have retained about you and the ability to review, correct, update, block or delete the information where it is inaccurate. Subject to applicable law, we may limit or deny access to personal information where providing such access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances. Please submit your request to the address specified in the “How to Contact Us” section below. Please include your name, e-mail address and mailing address in your request.
