What our Privacy Policy Covers

This Privacy Policy covers any personal information that Philip Pelusi obtains from you when you use services on our site. This policy does not cover the practices of companies that Philip Pelusi does not own or control, or the actions of people that Philip Pelusi does not employ or manage.

Our Privacy Policy may change in the future. We invite you to check back periodically to see if we have made any changes. If we make any material changes, we will post a notice on our home page.

By using this site, you agree to the terms of our policy. For more information about the terms of use for this site, please visit our legal page.
What Personal Information is Collected

Depending on how you use Philip Pelusi, we may ask you to share personal information with us. Whether you choose to give Philip Pelusi information is completely up to you, but keep in mind that if you withhold information, you may not be able to use some of our services.

When Personal Information is Collected

Philip Pelusi will ask you for information, including some personal information, if you use one of several services:

Becoming a Club Member. In order to become a club member, you need to share some personal information. You do not have to be a club member to visit PhilipPelusi.com’s web pages. But, you will have to join if you want to make full use of our services. By becoming a club member, you become a registered user (if you aren't one already) of PhilipPelusi.com.
Making a purchase. When you buy something on PhilipPelusi.com, you have to supply a billing address, phone number, shipping address, and credit card information. By making a purchase, you become a registered user (if you aren't one already) of PhilipPelusi.com.
Sweepstakes, Contests and Surveys. If you enter a sweepstakes or contest, or answer a survey, you will become a registered user (if you aren't one already). We may also ask you for some demographic information, such as your age. If you choose not to answer, you probably will not be able to participate in the sweepstakes, contest or survey.
Our Comments or Questions services. When you use the Comments or Questions services you will become a registered user (if you aren’t already one).

How Philip Pelusi Protects Your Information

We realize that our customers trust us to protect their personal information. We take that task seriously. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. For example:

We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") authentication to guarantee the confidentiality of online transactions made on our site. SSL authentication and encryption of the information that you send to us over the Internet help protect your online transaction information from third party interception.

We never display your full credit card number once it has been entered.
We will only reveal the last four digits of your credit card for verification purposes.

Unfortunately, despite all of our efforts, there is always a risk that third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions. This reality is true of all Internet use. As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit, and you transmit all information at your own risk.

How Philip Pelusi Uses Your Personal Information

Philip Pelusi collects personal information primarily to make our services more rewarding for you to use. We usually use this information for internal purposes, such as studying our customers' preferences. We may also use your information to contact you for account and promotional purposes.

In the event that another company buys the assets or stock of PhilipPelusi.com, your personal information may then belong to another entity.

We use e-mail addresses to send out e-mails and other announcements with information about Philip Pelusi's new services, products, events and special features.

Who Views Your Personal Information

Philip Pelusi may share your personal information with companies that perform services for us, such as sending postal mail and e-mails, analyzing customer data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and investigating fraudulent activity. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not disclose your personally identifiable information for other purposes.

Some personal information is stored on servers owned by other companies. Only Philip Pelusi has the right to access this information.

We currently share aggregate information about our customers with advertisers and marketing partners. This information does not identify individual users.

Personal information may be disclosed if required by law.

Philip Pelusi does not currently sell or license personal information. Before selling or licensing your personal information, we will post a notice in this Privacy Policy and on our home page.
