Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our

time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site.

    I. Links

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we (NoPlasticDrinks) are not
responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware
when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that
collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information
collected by this Web site.
 
J. Newsletter
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and
email address. Users who take the NoPlasticDrinks pledge are automatically subscribed to our
email newsletter. Each newsletter will provide an “opt-out” option to be unsubscribed from our
mailing list.  

K. Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation
in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether
or not to disclose this information.
Information requested may include contact information (such as name, email address and/or
shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, gender or age level). Contact
information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used
for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
 
M. Security
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit
sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card
number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the
best encryption software in the industry – SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form,
the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet
Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. To
learn more about SSL, follow this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transport_Layer_Security.
.
 

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in
our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the
sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the
information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service
representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must
use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must
re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information. Furthermore, ALL employees are
kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new
policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on
privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected.
 
N. Special Offers
New and established members will occasionally receive information on products, services,
special deals, and our newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the
option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.
 
O. Site and Service Updates
We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Users are not able to un-subscribe
from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We
communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regard to issues relating to their
account via email or phone.
 
P. Your Rights to Access and Control Your Personal Data.
We give you access and control of your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy. If you
live in the European Economic Area, United Kingdom, and Switzerland (the “Designated
Countries”), you have a number of legal rights with respect to your information,
 
R. Policies for Children
In order to respect the privacy of minors, NoPlasticDrinks does not knowingly collect, maintain
or process Personal Information submitted online via our Internet Services by anyone under the
age of 18. To the extent NoPlasticDrinks collects Personal Information on minors in the context
of one of the purposes mentioned in the Statement, NoPlasticDrinks will only do so with the
appropriate consent or as otherwise permitted under applicable laws.

 
S. Your California Privacy Rights
Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83, California customers are entitled to request
information relating to whether a business has disclosed Personal Information to any third parties
for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. NoPlasticDrinks does not sell or share your
Personal Information with third-party companies for their direct marketing purposes without
your consent.
 
T. International Data Transfers
We will rely on multiple legal bases to lawfully transfer personal data around the world. These
include your consent, the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield, and EU Commission approved
model contractual clauses, which require certain privacy and security protections. You may
obtain copies of the model contractual clauses by contacting us. NoPlasticDrinks complies with
the Privacy Shield principles regarding the collection, use, sharing, and retention of personal
information as described in our Privacy Shield certifications.
 
NoPlasticDrinks is subject to the oversight of the US Federal Trade Commission and remains
responsible for personal information that we transfer to others who process it on our behalf as
described in the How Information Is Shared section. If you have a complaint about our Privacy
Shield compliance, please contact us. You can also refer a complaint to our chosen independent
dispute resolution body, the International Centre for Dispute Resolution® at
http://go.adr.org/privacyshield.html.    
 
Please note that the countries where we operate may have privacy and data protection laws that
differ from, and are potentially less protective than, the laws of your country. You agree to this
risk when you create a NoPlasticDrinks’s account and click “I agree” to data transfers,
irrespective of which country you live in. If you later wish to withdraw your consent, you can
delete your information as described in the Privacy Policy.
 
You have the right to lodge a complaint regarding your information with the proper supervising
authority.
 
U. Correction/Updating Personal Information:

If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as your state or country of
residence), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to
correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at
the user account page or by emailing our Customer Support at [email protected]
 
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners
may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking the opt-out, unsubscribe button, or
email us at [email protected]
 
V. Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Website, so our
users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances,
if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a
manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an
email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different
manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the
information was collected.
