Collecting your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are asked to register before entering a contest, ordering e-mail newsletters, joining a limited-access premium site, or when purchasing and registering NaturalPoint products. Personal information collected by NaturalPoint.com often is limited to e-mail address, language, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
Use of your Personal Information
We use your personal information for four primary purposes:
- To make the site easier for you to use by not making you enter your personal information more than once.
- To help you quickly find software, services or information on NaturalPoint.com.
- To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you.
- To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information and other new services from NaturalPoint.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
NaturalPoint will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on NaturalPoint or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of NaturalPoint and its family of Web sites, and, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of NaturalPoint, its Web sites, or the public.
Control of your Personal Information
When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, NaturalPoint.com will not share that information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated above.
NaturalPoint may send out periodic e-mails informing you of technical service issues related to a product or service you requested. You will be able to choose to unsubscribe from these mailings, although they are considered an essential part of the service you have chosen.
Access to your Personal Information
We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may review and update this information at any time.

Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where NaturalPoint, its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.
