What personal information do we collect?

We may collect personal information from you when you voluntarily provide it to us through a number of features available on or through an Germinal Website.For example, we may ask you to provide personal information if you:

  • ask to receive online information from us, such as e-mail newsletters or e-mail updates;
  • participate in a review, survey, a consumer research panel, or similar type of activity;and/or
  • otherwise participate in features of an Germinal Website that ask for personal information.

In addition, if you otherwise request any information, service or other offering from us, you may be required to provide your contact or other information in order for us to process your request.

Your participation in any of these activities is voluntary and we will only use the personal information that you provide for the purposes for which it was collected.For example, we may use the personal information you provide to: respond to your questions or comments; fulfill your requests; provide service(s) and/or products to you; identify your needs and/or preferences; administer and manage our business operations; or otherwise provide or improve our products and/or services.

You will always have the opportunity to “unsubscribe” from receiving e-mail or other communications at any time.

If you contact one of our consumer service representatives through an Germinal Website, we may ask you for personal information such as your name, address, phone number, or e-mail address so that we can respond to your questions or comments.
