Effective Date: January 1, 2017
- Purple Lotus’s website is designed to provide useful information about our company and what we do.
- If you submit your information through the “contact us” or “email us” portion of our website, we will collect certain personal information from you. We use this personal information solely for our internal purposes, and we never sell personal information to third parties. Purple Lotus exercises the highest care to protect this information and ensures that only personnel with a need-to- know have access to it.
Who This Policy Covers/Collection of Information:
Purple Lotus collects personal information when users submit it on the “contact us” or “email us” portion of our website. The personal information consists of names and email addresses. Users also have the option to write a message to Purple Lotus. These messages may also contain personal information, if such personal information is provided in the message by the user.
We may also collect statistical information about you, such as the pages visited on the Purple Lotus Web sites, unique URLs visited within our Web sites, the domains from which people visit our Web sites, browser type and IP address. Generally, we do not link such information to any of your contact information (such as name, email address or user name). Most of this information is collected via cookies or other analysis technologies, such as Google Analytics. Accepting the cookies used on our site does not give us access to your personal information, but we may use the cookies to identify your computer. For more information on the kind of information Google Analytics provides us and how to safeguard your privacy when Google Analytics are used read here:
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children and we never knowingly market our products or services to children.
Sharing and Disclosure of Information
We never sell, rent or share your personal information or aggregate information (non-personally identifiable) with any other companies.
If you provide your contact information to Purple Lotus, we use it to periodically send you promotional emails. Only employees who have a need-to- know will access this information.
Cookies and Other Tracking Methods
When you view our Web site, we might store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file. Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your hard drive, not on our Web sites, to help you navigate a Web site as easily as possible. Cookies may uniquely identify your browser or your account, but they do not necessarily identify you personally. Cookies can also be used to help store personal information, for example where you ask us to “remember” you or keep you logged in. Cookies can help us to better understand how users use our Web sites, which in turn helps us focus our resources on features that are more popular with our users.
If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our Web site, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies. If your browser permits, you can refuse a cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence or generally refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, but some parts of our Web site may not work properly in that case. You can delete cookies from your browser; however, that means that any settings or preferences managed by those cookies will also be deleted and you may need to recreate them. Depending on your mobile device, you may not be able to control tracking technologies through settings.

Purple Lotus also employs a software technology known as Web Beacons that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see. The type of information we collect includes the pages visited, navigation patterns, etc.
Purple Lotus has engaged one or more affiliated and unaffiliated third party service providers to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from visitors to the Web site. The service provider(s) set cookies on behalf of Purple Lotus. Purple Lotus also uses other third party cookies to track the effectiveness of Purple Lotus.com and to advertise Purple Lotus’s products and services, as well as those of our partners and affiliates. Some of the providers that track visitors to our site are Google Analytics (http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy).
Examples of this information we track may include, but are not limited to:
– websites you visited that referred you to ours
– mobile apps you use (if you used a mobile app to come to our site)
– your IP address (for purposes of determining your general location)
– model of the device you used to reach our site, and browser information
DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not- track” signals to websites with which the browser communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they are even aware of them.
Participants in the leading Internet standards-setting organization that is addressing this issue are in the process of determining what, if anything, Web sites should do when they receive such signals. Purple Lotus currently does not take action in response to these signals. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, Purple Lotus will reassess how to respond to these signals.
Third Party Websites
Advertising and other third party content may be present on our website. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and have no responsibility or liability for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our website. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies and we encourage our users to read them. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to our website, is subject to that website’s own terms and policies.
Changes in this Privacy Statement
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.
