Use of Information
Personal Information will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the website user at the time of collection. The user will have the opportunity to indicate whether he or she would like to “opt out” of receiving promotional and/or marketing information about other products, services and offerings from Bonvera and/or any third parties. Further, notwithstanding any “opt out” of promotional information by the user, Bonvera reserves the right to contact a customer or Associate regarding account status, changes to the Associate Agreement and other matters relevant to the underlying service and/or the information collected.
We use the information that is collected about you for a variety of purposes, such as confirming and fulfilling orders, referrals to service partners, adding you to our e-mail subscription list, providing your name to a Bonvera Associate in connection with potential interest in Bonvera products or the business opportunity. We also use the information in analyzing trends and statistics, enhancing the operation of the website.
From time to time you may voluntarily provide Personal Information to complete questionnaires or to participate in contests, polls or personalized assessments. We use this information to improve our products and services. We may also use your Personal Information to provide you newsletters and other marketing information we think would be of particular interest to you concerning things such as new products or website features. But you always have the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited promotional materials from us, and we will make every reasonable effort to honor such requests.
We work with affiliated businesses we do not control, such as product and service sellers on our website. We share customer information related to any transactions between you and that third party.
We may share Personal Information you provide online with other Bonvera-affiliated entities and/or trusted business partners with whom we collaborate. We may employ third party vendors to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include delivering packages, fulfilling orders, e-mail administrative functions, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These vendors will be under bound by contract to use confidential data only for those purposes for which they are hired.
Bonvera may disclose Personal Information to a third party in the event that Bonvera sells all or part of its assets to such third party or merges with or is acquired by the third party.
Except as stated above or when necessary to share your information with Bonvera agents or business partners for the purposes of performing services for Bonvera, your personal information (name, address, telephone number, e-mail address or other information) will not be provided to any third party without your prior consent. We have restricted our agents and business partners from using your personal information in any way other than to provide the services contracted for by Bonvera.
We may disclose the information that we collect about you when we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities that may be causing injury to you, to us or to others. At times we may be required by law or legal process to disclose your personal information, and we may also disclose information when we believe the law requires it. We may also disclose information about you if we believe that disclosure is necessary for the public interest.
Users may always “opt out” of further promotional contacts at any time. Also, upon request, Bonvera will take reasonable efforts to delete a user’s personal information from its database.
