This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.
What information do we collect?
When you visit the PROVOKR, we collect some basic information that does not identify individual users. This includes the type of browser and operating system you are using, your IP address, your device identifiers, your Internet or wireless service provider, location-based information, which pages are visited, types of products purchased, and any feedback you provide. We then aggregate this information with other pieces of information to improve the PROVOKR and make your experience on the PROVOKR as valuable and efficient as possible. When you become a PROVOKR member, you may be asked to provide the following personal information to us or our third-party credit card processor:
- First and last name

- Email address
- Phone number
- Credit or debit card account number.
In addition, we may ask you at other times for additional personal information, including your personal or professional interests or your opinions about products or the services we provide, including (but not limited to) when you respond to a survey or enter promotions.
What do we do with the information we collect?
We use the information that we collect to provide you with the best experience we can on PROVOKR.com. As such, we use the information to contact you on occasion for your input on PROVOKR.com in terms of functionality, content, new services and/or products. In addition, we use the information to email you regarding new offers, special programming and for marketing & advertising purposes in order to again enhance your experience on PROVOKR.com. We may use the information if necessary to defend legal claims, protect the rights and property of PROVOKR.com, our members, service providers, business partners and others. When we send you emails that include a link to PROVOKR.com, that link may contain an alphanumeric identifier that allows us to identify the member to whom we sent the message so that we can personalize our content for that member.
With whom do we share your information and for what purpose?
When one or more of our business partner(s) co-sponsor a service or promotion, we may share the information collected in connection with such service or promotion with these business partner(s).
We may also share aggregate user information in a non-personally identifiable manner with advertisers and other third parties in order to present to users more targeted advertising, products and services.
We may, from time to time, supplement the information we collect from you with outside records (e.g., information we obtain from other companies, including software and technology service partners) to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.

Credit card processing and security
Credit card security is an important aspect of the online experience. In order to keep your credit card information safe, your ordering information — including your name, address, and credit card number — is encrypted using a secure server, so that your credit card and billing information cannot be read as it travels to our ordering system. Credit-card transactions are handled by a third-party financial institution or gateway processor, which receives the credit card number and other personal identifying information only to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions.
Cooperation with law enforcement
We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use the PROVOKR for illegal activities. We reserve the right to release information about members who we believe are in violation of applicable laws or regulations. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful.
PROVOKR.com’s member accounts are secured by member-created passwords. We take precautions to ensure that member account information is kept private. We use reasonable measures to protect member information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to member information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of member account information (why not? what kind of software security will we provide?). Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of our member information at any time.
Users Located Outside of the United States
If a parent believes that his or her child has submitted personal information to us, he or she can contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (888) 226-0588. We will promptly delete the information upon learning that it relates to a child under the age of 18. Please note that it is possible some of this information may remain archived in web logs and back-up archives after we delete the information from its active database. We believe that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from otherwise disclosing online their name, address and other personal information without parental permission.
