What Information We Collect About You
We collect information about you so we can continue to provide and improve our Services to you and other users of the Site. The information collected through the Site may include, but not be limited to items such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, facsimile number, business size, industry type, as well as other information that may or may not specifically identify you. The information collected on the Site may be stored at servers, computers, or other media located in or outside the United States.
We may also obtain information about you from third-party sources. This information may be utilized, analyzed, and/or compared with information that we have collected from you or that you have submitted to the Site. Such third parties may include, but are not limited to Google. If Polywater obtains information from third-party sources, Polywater takes commercially reasonable measures to ensure the third-parties lawfully obtained and provided the information to us. If the third-parties unlawfully obtained and/or provided the information to us despite our reasonable measures to ensure the third-parties complied with all legal requirements in obtaining and providing the information to us, you understand, agree, and acknowledge that your sole legal remedy is against the third party that engaged in the unlawful activity and that you will not assert any cause of action, claim or demand against us.
Information Collection Technology (Web Beacons and Cookies)
We also may use various technologies to collect information from your electronic device about your activities on the Site. We may collect and store some information through cookies, log files, clear gifs (commonly known as “web beacons”), and third-parties to profile user activity and preferences. Technical and specification information about your browser and computer is automatically collected when you use or visit the Site. This information may include your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, your browser type, operating system, access time(s), the content of previously accepted “cookies” from us, and the website address that referred you to the Site.
The Site may contain web beacons (also known as “clear gifs”) or similar technologies that gather information about your use of the Site. Such technology may also be contained in e-mail messages or newsletters from us that allow us to determine whether messages have been received or accessed. The purpose of our use of this technology is so that we may analyze the effectiveness of our marketing efforts, the quality of the Site, and the Services we provide.
Information About Users Under 18 Years of Age Not Collected
The Site is meant for adults and those who have reached the age of majority as defined by the laws of their domicile and if you have not reached the age of majority you may not use the Site, unless we receive verifiable parental consent. Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect or retain any personal information about users under the age of eighteen (18). If we obtain actual knowledge that we collected or retained personal information about a child under the age of eighteen (18), that information will be promptly deleted from our database, servers, and all other media.
How that information may be Used and Shared
We may use and share your information for any legally permissible purpose. We may match, use, and share any of the information we collect from you to any information we obtain through third-parties. Examples of some ways we may use or share information that we collect about you include, but may not be limited to:
- providing you with products or services;
- providing you with customized content and services;
- providing customer support;
- communicating with you by e-mail, United States mail, telephone, text message, and/or mobile devices about products or services that may be of interest to you either from us, or from any of our affiliates, sponsors or other third-parties;
- complying with applicable law;
- working with our advertising partners;
- enforcing the TOUs or our other terms and conditions, or otherwise managing our business; and
- performing functions as otherwise described to you at the time of payment collection.

Unless you opt out of certain communication features, we may use your information to communicate with you, such as through e-mail, newsletters, and telephone. You may opt out and/or unsubscribe to communications from Polywater at any time by completing the form available here.
Your Information Will Not Be Sold
We will not sell any information you submit to us to any third party without prior written notice to you and an opportunity for you to opt-out of such sale, provided, however, that we are permitted to sell your information if all or substantially all of our assets or stock are sold as part of a merger, acquisition, or similar transaction. However, you agree that we are able to sell aggregated and/or deidentified information that we may collect related to you and your use of the Site.
Legal Process and Investigation Issues
From time to time, Polywater may be required to respond to a subpoena, a court order or similar investigative demand from law enforcement, a government agency, or a private litigant. Polywater reserves all rights, remedies, and defenses, within its sole discretion, to such legal requests, demands, and claims. For instance, Polywater may raise or waive legal objections or rights. Polywater also reserves the right to disclose your information, as allowed by applicable law, when we believe it is reasonably appropriate based on the situation. Such disclosure may occur, but is not limited to, disclosing your information in connection with efforts to: (i) investigate, prevent, or commence other actions regarding suspected illegal activity or other wrongdoing; (ii) protect or defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees; or others; (iii) comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or (iv) enforce the TOU or other agreements or policies related to the Site or the Services.
Notice about Social Security Numbers
We do not collect social security numbers of customers or other users, and you should not provide such information to Polywater. Nonetheless, if Polywater comes into possession with your social security number or collects such information in the future, your social security number will be treated confidentially and not shared with third-parties, unless allowed by law. Additionally, Polywater will take reasonable steps to limit the access to your social security number and take legally required steps to secure the transmission of your social security number.
Third Party Privacy Policies May Be Applicable
The Site may contain links to other websites. Polywater disclaims any responsibility for the privacy practices of third-parties that may have links to or from the Site, or any framed content on the Site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of every website that you visit that collects your information.
Do Not Track Requests
In some states, you may be entitled to know how we respond to “Do Not Track” browser settings. There is little consensus in the industry about what “Do Not Track” means. Our Site is not equipped to handle “Do Not Track” requests. If you believe you have a legal right to opt-out of any tracking or retention of your data, please contact us using the information below.
What access and rights you have to Your Information
We will retain your information in our records unless and until you ask us to delete the information as may be required by applicable. You may “out-out” of receiving our promotional emails at any time by following the instructions contained at the end of such email. You may also notify us at the following links to remove your information, access your information, or update your information.

How we protect your information
We may store your information for more than one (1) year from the time of initial submission, as well as automated information we collect about you. However, if we obtain or collect your social security number or credit card number, that information will only be stored for a limited time pursuant to your authorization, unless applicable law requires otherwise.
We take reasonable security measures to protect your information against unauthorized access, loss, alteration, or destruction. These measures include encryption and physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store your information, and the usage of reputable third-party vendors. Despite these reasonable measures, we cannot guarantee our security measures are impenetrable. Therefore, although we take reasonable steps to secure your information, we cannot and do not promise or warrant that your information will always remain secure.

To do so, please contact us here and have “Nevada Privacy Rights Opt-Out Request” written in the “message” space. In response, we will request information from you to verify your identity.
