Blistex strongly believes in protecting the privacy of children online (we define “children” as minors younger than 13). We do not knowingly collect or use any personal information from children. We do not knowingly allow children to become subscribers, make Submissions, register with us, order our products or services, communicate with us, or use any of our online services.
Active Information Collection
Like many web sites, this Web Site actively collects information from its visitors both by allowing visitors to ask us specific questions and by permitting visitors to communicate directly with us via e-mail and feedback/comment forms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, etc.). However, we do not collect any personal information that can be traced to a specific individual unless he or she voluntarily and knowingly provides it to us.
In certain sections of the Web Site (e.g., “Contact Us”), we request and collect personal information such as your name, age, e-mail address and postal address (street, city, state and ZIP code). The personal information collected will be used internally, if we need to contact you directly to respond to questions, comments or inquiries you submit or to contact you about a contest or sweepstakes you enter on the Web Site. Otherwise, Blistex will only use your personally identifiable information in accordance with the disclosures made to you at the time of collection or if you otherwise give your specific consent.
By using this site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by Blistex.
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through our Web Site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information). On our site, the tools employed to passively collect information are limited to only those necessary to improve navigation and collect aggregate statistical information.
We do analyze the navigational data in our server log files. These log files may contain “clickstream” data and/or IP addresses that are not generally traceable to a specific individual user. We use these data solely in order to monitor aggregate site traffic patterns for the purpose of system administration, management and improvement.
This Web Site uses session cookies, temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your Web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. This Web Site does not use any other type of cookies. Further, this Web Site does not use “Internet tags” (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, or 1-by-1 GIFs), or any other individually-traceable technology.
Sharing of Information
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. For instance, we may use third parties to host certain portions of the Web Site, to develop software applications and databases or to contact you or send communications on our behalf, including, without limitation, in connection with market research studies about our products or our competitors products. These third parties may have access to your personal and anonymous information in order to perform these functions on our behalf.
While Blistex has safeguards in place to prevent unauthorized access or interception, there is no absolute guarantee of security. In the event of an interception or unauthorized access, Blistex shall not be responsible for such interception or unauthorized access, or any direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages (including lost profits) suffered by a visitor or user, even if Blistex has previously been advised of the possibility of such damages. Blistex does not warrant, either expressly or impliedly, that the information provided by any visitor shall be free from interception or unauthorized access, and does not provide any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.
In transmitting electronic communications to Blistex, the user of this Web Site is requesting that Blistex send information to or contact the user regarding our products. Blistex will make every effort to accommodate reasonable requests for information pertaining to our products and services in a timely manner but makes no guarantees for the timeliness of such responses. The user should be aware that Blistex is not responsible for delay, non-delivery or non-receipt of any information exchanged between Blistex and the user or vice-versa due to internet connectivity problems, man-made or natural disasters, force majeure, computer malfunctions or incorrect contact information (including but not limited to e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, telephone, cellular, pager or fax numbers) supplied by the user.
