WHO IS COLLECTING YOUR INFORMATION?

Except as otherwise discussed in this Policy, we are the entity collecting your PII. This Policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you.

We may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide PII to the appropriate governmental authorities.

HOW TO UPDATE OR DELETE PII

You may ask us in writing via mail or email at support@prelimine.com to have the information on your account deleted, updated or corrected; however, because we keep track of past purchases, you cannot delete information associated with past purchases. We may also be required by law or otherwise to keep certain information and therefore will not delete it or will delete it only after we have fulfilled the applicable requirements. Note that we may retain changed or deleted information for archival or other purposes.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PII

We employ reasonable security measures to protect the security of the information you submit to us, such as password protection and encryption. The security of your PII is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.  

In order to efficiently serve you, credit card transactions and order fulfillment may be handled by established third-party banking institutions, process agents and distribution institutions. They receive the information they need to verify and authorize your credit card transactions. When you access your account information, the information is kept on a secure server. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access by physical security means.

Our Service addresses no one under the age of 16 (“Children”). We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 16. If you are a parent or guardian and you know that your Children have provided us with PII please contact us.
