To save you time and make our web services even easier to use, some areas of the Playa Companion website allow you to create an "Playa Companion ID" using your personal information. Here's how it works: Simply fill out a brief profile—your name and email address—then choose a password for security. The system saves your information and assigns you a personal Playa Companion ID. Next time you visit Playa Companion, you can simply enter your Playa Companion ID and password—the system will automatically look up the information it needs.
Playa Companion works with other companies that help us provide Playa Companion products and services to you, and we may provide your personal information to these companies. For example, we give shipping companies this information so they can deliver your products efficiently. The information they receive is for shipping and delivery purposes only, and we require that the companies safeguard your personal information in accordance with Playa Companion's policies.
At times we may be required by law or legal process to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we believe that disclosure is necessary for the public interest.
How we protect your personal information: Playa Companion safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
The Playa Companion Store uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. To make purchases from the Playa Companion Store, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later, or Internet Explorer. This protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the Internet.
Collecting other personal information: When you browse Playa Companion’s website as a non-member, you are able to do so anonymously. Generally, we don’t collect personal information when you browse — not even your email address. Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.
In some of our emails to you, we may use a “click-through URL.” When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web server before arriving at the website that is your destination. We track click-throughs to help us determine your interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.
Our companywide commitment to privacy: To make sure your personal information remains confidential, we communicate these privacy guidelines to every Playa Companion employee. In addition, Playa Companion participates in industry initiatives—such as the Online Privacy Alliance and Trustee to preserve privacy rights on the Internet and in all aspects of electronic commerce.
Playa Companion does not knowingly solicit personal information from children or send them requests for personal information.
Playa Companion's website contains links to other sites. Playa Companion does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.
If we are going to use your personal information differently from that stated at the time of collection, we will try to contact you via email using the most recent information we have. If you have not given us permission to communicate with you, you will not be contacted, nor will we use your personal information in a new manner.
