ABOUT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION THIS WEBSITE COLLECTS AND HOW IT IS USED
This website routinely collects information about its visitors, subscribers, members, and customers. This information is obtained in various ways, such as:
VISITOR INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM ‘REGISTRATION’
Registration means that the Visitor takes active, positive steps to communicate information to this website. This can include pages or ‘pop ups’ where you register for a newsletter, contest or subscribe to a mailing list; it can include your participation in visitor surveys; requesting information from the website via email, mail, or courier; it may be from joining an affiliate program or other membership organization, paid or unpaid; it may be from ordering a product.
Occasionally complete credit card information may be provided to the website via fax, telephone or a fill-in form rather than regular secure merchant service processing. This information is kept at the highest level of security and is never divulged to anyone except the merchant service provider or for the purpose of communication with the customer.
To register with earthempress.com or any of its subsidiaries, you must be over eighteen years of age. Each registration is for a single user only. We do not permit you to share your user name and password with any other person nor with multiple users on a network. Responsibility for the security of any passwords issued rests with you and if you know or suspect that someone else knows your password, you should contact us immediately. We may suspend or cancel your registration immediately at our reasonable discretion or if you breach any of your obligations under these terms and conditions.
Online ordering via SSL encrypted communication provided by shopping cart services supporting merchant service companies like Visa and Master Card provides information to the website but does not provide complete credit card numbers. In the process of online ordering, the customer provides, name, address, city, state, email address, phone number, CVV2 (back of card) number, and, occasionally a member password. You should consider all this information available to the website. This information is used to deliver the product, but under the Purchase Agreement you also approve its use for general solicitation purposes from Earth Empress or its product partners related to your purchase.
INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM REFERRING EMAIL OR REFERRING URLS
If you send a friend an email from this site or if you send the url or one of our web pages to a friend, you must assume that some data is collected about your IP address, your email address and that of your friend. Referred emails or web pages may appear to come from your email. You must accept full responsibility for referring pages or email to a friend and agree to indemnify this site for any damage, intentional or unintentional that results from said referrals.
INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM VOLUNTARY VISITOR SURVEYS OR CONTESTS
Unless otherwise specified in the survey or contest, you must assume that any information provided to the website as part of a survey or contest in which you participate may be used for general solicitation for commercial purposes and that such information may be shared with joint venture partners or used by the site itself for product design or solicitation purposes. Your information will never be sold or shared with any unrelated party.
INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM ELECTRONIC MEANS AND ‘COOKIES’
“Cookies” is web jargon for bits of computer code placed on your hard drive. Websites use this to keep you ‘logged in’, to keep track of search criteria, to monitor use, to password protect use of the site or use of products sold by the site. Cookies can also be used to obtain information about your computer configuration or your use of your computer.
Cookies can be used to electronically gather information about you, which may or may not be personal information. By using this site you are expressly giving permission for use of ‘cookies’ and use of the information gathered from them.

INFORMATION THAT IS NOT SHARED
Credit card information or other financial information is not usually known to the website. However, in the event that it is made known, that information is never revealed to anyone except to processing authorities or law enforcement agencies.

Earth Empress will never sell or give your information to other companies, websites, or marketing groups without your permission.

You may not assign, sub-license or otherwise transfer any of your rights under these terms and conditions. If any provision of these terms and conditions is found by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the invalidity of that provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions which shall continue to have full force and effect.
