Mina Pharmaceuticals is aware that the security of your private information from the use of our web-site is an important concern. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. With this privacy statement, we would like you to know what data we maintain and what data we discard, and inform you about our security measures.
Collection of Data
You can use our web site without disclosing your personal data. You are not required to provide personal information as a condition of using our site, except as may be necessary to provide you a product or service at your request. When you use our web site, we store data on our servers for various security purposes. This data may include the name of your internet service provider, the web site that you used to link to our site, the web sites that you visit from our site and your IP-Address. This data could possibly lead to your identification, but we do not use it to do so. We do use the data from time to time for statistical purposes, but maintain the anonymity of each individual user so that the person cannot be identified. We receive and store any information you enter on our Web Site or give in any other way (e.g., by telephone). This may include information you provide when you register as a member, engage in transactions, search, blogs, contact customer service, or participate in contests, promotions, surveys, forums, content submissions, chats, bulletin boards, comments, discussion groups, requests for suggestions or other aspects or services offered by us. As a result, you may be supplying us with such information as your name, email address, address, and phone numbers; credit/debit numbers, expiration date and other billing information such as credit card security codes and different shipping and billing addresses; people to whom purchases have been gifted or shipped, including addresses and phone number; names and e-mail addresses of friends, names, gender, and date of birth of a child or children, and possible referrals and other people.
Collection and processing of personal data
We collect personal data only when you provide it to us, through registration, completion of forms or e-mails, as part of an order for products or services, inquiries or requests about materials being ordered and similar situations in which you have chosen to provide the information to us.
The database and its contents remain at our company and stay with data processors or servers acting on our behalf and responsible to us. Your personal data will not be passed on by us or by our agents for use by third parties in any form whatsoever, unless we have obtained your consent or are legally required to do so. We will retain control of and responsibility for the use of any personal data you disclose to us. Some of this data may be stored or processed at computers located in other jurisdictions, where data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. In such cases, we will ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that country to maintain protections on the data that are equivalent to those that apply in the country in which you live.
We share customer information with third parties only as follows:
Referrer/Referees and Gifting: If you choose to use our referral or gifting services to tell a friend or someone else about our site or send them order(s) of Company product(s), we will ask you for your friend’s or that person’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend or that person email confirming that their gift order is being processed. Your friend may contact us at email@example.com to request that we remove this information from our database. In order for you to get credit for a referral who joins minavitamins.com, the person whom you refer must enter your email address or a unique password that identifies you as the referrer. We send emails on your behalf to potential referees and gift recipients. Also, if you were referred to infominavitamins.com by an existing member, that member may be notified each time your order qualifies him/her for a credit.
Agents/Service Providers: We use other third parties such as a shipping company to fulfill orders, and a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services. We will share your name, email address, billing or shipping address as necessary for the third party to provide that service. These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for promotional purposes.
Reviews/Share This/Testimonials/Blogs: If you review a product on our site, your review may be posted on the Web Site as well as on a partners’ network site that shares reviews with other shopping communities. When you use “Share This” to post to social networking sites or to tell your friends about our Web Site, the information is collected by a third-party site to facilitate your postings. “Share This” allows you to enter your friend’s email address and/or import email contacts from various email service providers to send them an on-time email inviting them to visit the site. Once the email addresses are imported, you must manually click on each email address you wish to send a communication to. Please note that these third-party sites’ privacy policies govern the collection and use of the information collected on those sites. We post customer reviews/testimonials on our Web Site, and such posts may contain personally identifiable information. We do obtain the customer’s consent via email prior to posting the review/testimonial to post their name along with their review/testimonial. If you use a blog on this Web Site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.
Merger/Sale: In the event that the Company, substantially all of its assets, or a line of its business is acquired, individually identifying information of our members may be one of the assets sold in connection with that transaction, without notice to you or your consent. We will notify users of the Web Site of such a change in ownership or transfer of assets by posting a notice on the Web Site.
Bankruptcy: In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used. Therefore, you should know that in such event, your personal information may be treated like any other asset of the Company, and sold, transferred or shared with third parties, or used in ways not contemplated or permitted hereunder, without notice to you or your consent.
How Secure Is the Personal Information and Credit Card Data You Collect?
We have taken precautions, including the deployment of technological resources and the use of firewalls, systems and procedures, to protect the security of your personal information. When you enter credit card information on our Web Site, we may securely store it with a trusted third party for your safety so that you do not have to re-enter it every time you order, and we encrypt it using secure socket layer technology (SSL) when storing. While no security system is absolutely foolproof, we are constantly reviewing, refining and upgrading our security technology to protect your privacy. When you open an account with the Company, you create a password by which to access and secure your account and account information. Although we have taken these precautions, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password, which should not be disclosed by you to anyone. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
The Web Site and related services contains links to third-party websites. We have no control over the content, policies or actions of these sites, even if you are offered services on those sites because you have established an account with us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Web Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this Web Site.
Purposes of Use
Information about our customers is an important part of our business. We use information we collect to communicate with you, to process your orders, to provide an enhanced and more personalized interactive shopping experience, to send you newsletters, to facilitate your transactions with our third-party marketing partners and to inform you of offers and discounts. For example, you can expect to receive a welcoming email to confirm your username and password, and we communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request and to manage your account. We also send service-related announcements on occasions such as when we need to temporarily suspend our Web Site for maintenance or make you aware of upcoming billing cycles. We also will send you promotional emails on occasion. Generally, you may not opt-out of service-related communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to terminate your account. You can opt-out of promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions within each communication or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The data we collect will only be used for the purpose of supplying you with the requested products or services or for other purposes for which you have given your consent, except where otherwise provided by law.

So-called cookies are used in order for us to improve the efficiency of your individual use of the web site. cookies are identifiers that our web-server could send to your computer in order to identify the computer being used for the duration of the session.

In light of the importance of protecting children’s privacy, we do not collect, process or use on our website any information relating to an individual whom we know to be under 13 years old without the prior, verifiable consent of his or her legal representative. Such legal representative has the right, upon request, to view the information provided by the child and/or to require that it be deleted.
Please contact Mina with any problems, questions or suggestions that you may have. The constant development of the internet requires occasional adjustments to our privacy statement. We retain the right to make changes when necessary.
