Privacy Policy

--- Updated August 2018 ---

 

Oberle Communications, LLC – publisher of Product Safety Letter – is committed to protecting your privacy and security when you visit www.productsafetyletter.com. By using the website or our services, you consent to this policy.

 

DATA YOU PROVIDE

Personal

To gain access to portions of our website or our services, you must voluntarily become a customer by providing us basic personally identifying information such as your name, address and email.

 

Financial

To pay for our premium services, you have the option to process your credit card through our site. For your security, this is done via a secure third-party service that specializes in protecting such financial data. Neither we – nor the contractor that supports our website generally – can see your full credit card number. We can view only the last four digits of your card number to aid in any discussions with you about your order.

 

DATA WE COLLECT

We use cookies or similar methods of online tracking.

 

The primary purpose is to identify premium (paid) customers and allow them through our paywall (or on very rare occasions, to identify someone who has disseminated their username and password with the intent of allowing others to cheat the paywall).

 

To a lesser extent, we might use such data to improve our services or content. However, such use typically would involve anonymized analyses of the general user behavior rather than your behavior in particular.

 

We do not use this data for any marketing or similar purposes, and we do not track your activity beyond your use of productsafetyletter.com or its services.

 

We do not rent or sell such data to outside parties.

 

Examples of such data includes IP address, browser type, geographic location, or time spent on the site.

 

MARKETING AND ADVERTISING

By showing interest in our free or premium service, you might receive other marketing material from us by either postal mail or email. Should you wish to opt out, our marketing emails always will have a link at the bottom for doing so. You also can email us at customers@productsafetyletter.com.

 

However, it is not our practice to rent or sell your information to third-party marketers.

 

We place advertisement banners on our site or in emails we send you. Those may link to third-party sites over which we exercise no control (although we do control which banners we show).

 

SHARING YOUR DATA

We do not share your data with third-party marketers or similar entities

 

Your data can be available to our secure third-party contractors involved in:

  • Providing general maintenance of our website and services.
  • Processing your financial information when you purchase a premium service.

FUTURE USE

Product Safety Letter and its parent company, Oberle Communications LLC, reserve the right to use your personal and company information to:

  • Disclose information to third parties or government authorities when we have reason to believe that such disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Product Safety Letter's rights or property, including our copyrights, other members or users of www.productsafetyletter.com, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.
  •  

  • Disclose information to third parties when we believe in good faith that the disclosure is required by law or a court of competent jurisdiction.

SPAM

We comply with anti-spam laws.

 

If you opt into our services, we likely will send you marketing material. If you do not wish to continue receiving it, you can opt out via a link at the bottom of an email or by contacting us at customers@productsafetyletter.com.

 

We do not rent or sell your information to third parties.

 

THIRD PARTY LINKS

Advertising: We place advertising banners on our website and in emails. Some of these might link to third-party sites over which we have no control. However, we do not link to advertisers that we do not have a direct relationship with.

 

News and Documents: Our content regularly contains links to related information. Examples include government sites, industry sites, and news sites. For brevity, we often use the bit.ly or Hootsuite services to condense URLs. They do track some activity. See their websites to learn their practices.

 

BREACHES

We and our third-party contractors strive to protect your information. However, should you become aware of (or suspect) a breach of your information, please contact us immediately at customers@productsafetyletter.com so that we and/or our third-party contractors can address the problem.

 

You agree that breaches can and do occur, and you agree that we are not responsible for such occurrences without our permission and knowledge. You release Oberle Communications from any and all claims arising from the unauthorized use or tampering of such intercepted data. You agree to notify us of such breaches.

 

INTERNATIONAL

By using this information, you consent to the transfer of your information outside your country of information for the use purposes outlined above.

 

European Union

We and our secure financial and web-maintenance contractors are in the U.S.A. Use of this website thus means your data is transferred outside the European Economic Area.

 

We strive to ensure your data is secure and your privacy is protected, including use of contractors that adhere to the EU-US Privacy Shield. Submit any questions to customers@productsafetyletter.com.

 

CHILDREN

We intend to collect information only from adults. This site does not provide materials meant for children. Only adults should use it or provide us their information.

 

CHANGES

We reserve the right to make changes to this policy without notice. Those changes will become effective upon posting them here.
