SECTION 1 – WHY DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM YOU?
When you purchase something from our site, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address, phone number, email address, and credit card information in order to perform our obligations under the subscriber agreement we have with you, or in order to comply with legal requirements required of us in connection with performing those obligations. When you browse our site, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address, which helps to identify you and your use of our service. We may also use some of the above information to manage your account, send you emails about our service, provide information about new products or updates, and to personalize your repeat visits so as to optimize your user experience.
SECTION 2 – CONSENT
How do you provide your consent? When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, place an order or return a purchase, it is assumed that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you for your expressed consent directly, or provide you with an opportunity to say no. How do you withdraw your consent should you wish to do so? You may withdraw your consent for us to contact you and/or for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting us at custserv5@TheBusinessSource.com.
SECTION 3 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, as well as email services, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions or to deliver our service to you. To the best of our knowledge, they all comply with generally accepted industry standards including the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and we strive to ensure that they continue to do so.
SECTION 4 – PAYMENTS
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our site and its service providers.
SECTION 5 – DISCLOSURE
We may disclose your personal information if we are required to do so by law or if you violate our Terms of Service.
SECTION 6 – SECURITY
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices that include technical and organizational measures, to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed, and continually strive to improve this protection. If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards including the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) for internal security procedures.
SECTION 7 – COOKIES
Cookies are used from time to time. As you browse thebusinesssource.com and other websites, online ad networks we work with may place anonymous cookies on your computer, and use similar technologies, in order to understand your interests based on your (anonymous) online activities, and thus to tailor more relevant ads to you. If you do not wish to receive such tailored advertising, you can visit this page to opt out of most companies that engage in such advertising. (This will not prevent you from seeing ads; the ads simply will not be delivered through these targeting methods.)
SECTION 8 – AGE OF CONSENT
By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state, province or locality of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state, province or locality of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.
