2. Information Pearl Group LLC Collects
You may browse portions of our Site without providing us with personally identifiable information. However, in order to access certain functions and features of the Site, or to make a purchase, Pearl Group LLC will collect "personally identifiable information" from you, such as your first and last name, postal address, email address, phone number and fax number. Pearl Group LLC will collect personally identifiable information from you when you voluntarily give Pearl Group LLC the information, such as when you participate in contests or promotions, complete a survey, join our mailing list, register for an account on the Site, choose to submit testimonials, stories, photos, or the like to the Site, or otherwise communicate with the Site. When registered professional users select and submit items to purchase on the Site, Pearl Group LLC forwards the list of items in their Shopping Bag and their name and address to their designated distributor. The distributor will ship the order and bill them directly for it; Pearl Group LLC is not involved in the processing of these transactions.
Pearl Group LLC may also collect demographic information that you provide it via surveys, contests or otherwise, such as your zip code, age, or income level, as well as information about your knowledge of and satisfaction with Pearl Group LLC and Pearl Group LLC's products.
The Site is not intended for use by children. Pearl Group LLC will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information submitted by visitors to the Site who are under the age of 13. If we learn that we have inadvertently gathered personally identifiable information from children under 13, we will attempt to notify such child’s parent or guardian and erase such information from our records, unless the child’s parent or guardian consents to our maintaining such information. We do recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves over the Internet.
