  1. Overview

    Simplicity and its affiliates and subsidiaries ("Simplicity") are aware of and responsive to your concerns regarding how information about you is collected, used and shared when you visit simplicitygroup.com ("Web Site"). Simplicity is committed to protecting the privacy of consumers of Simplicity's products and services and recognizes the need for appropriate management of your personal information. This notice describes the privacy policy applicable to our Web Site ("Privacy Policy"). Although the Privacy Policy is discussed in more detail below, it is important to note:

    The personally identifiable information that you provide is considered confidential and except as otherwise explained below in Paragraph C, such information will not be provided to others.

    Please note that this policy applies only to Simplicity's Web Site and not to the web sites of other companies or organizations to which Simplicity may provide links as further explained below in Paragraph H. By visiting, accessing, browsing or using the Web Site you agree to the practices described in the Privacy Policy.

  2. The Information Simplicity Collects

    Information gathered online may be referred to as either anonymous or personally identifiable information. Anonymous information refers to web site usage information that cannot be traced back to a specific individual, e.g., the total number of visitors to our Web Site ("General Information"). Personally identifiable information refers to specific information about a customer, e.g., name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number. ("Personal Information"). Please note that it is your choice to share Personal Information via the Web Site. Consider only sharing Personal Information with Simplicity if you agree to our Privacy Policy.

    1. General Information

      Simplicity may collect certain General Information automatically, including "site usage" information from all visitors to the Web Site. Such data is used only in the aggregate. General Information helps Simplicity determine general usage patterns and modify the Web Site in order to improve your experience. This type of General Information may be shared with third parties any time.

      Simplicity may, at times, use a technology known as "cookies" that tells Simplicity how and when pages in our Web Site are visited, and by how many people. Simplicity cookies do not collect Personal Information and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or even what your e-mail address is. We may also provide statistical General Information to our Simplicity affiliates as to how our customers use our Web Site. The Web Site may include content from other parties that may perform user activity tracking other than that described herein. In particular, some of our third party vendors may use "cookies" in ways that we do not.

    2. Personal Information

      There are times when Simplicity may specifically ask for information about you when you apply for a job or send us an inquiry. Simplicity may need certain Personal Information - such as name, email address, mailing address, and phone number -in order to consider your application or inquiry. We may also use that Personal Information to let you know of additional products and services about which you might be interested unless you choose not to receive such information.

  3. Use and Disclosure of Information

    1. How Simplicity Uses the Information

      You acknowledge and agree that Simplicity has the right to use Personal Information and General Information and any other information (collectively "Information") that Simplicity collects from or about you through its Web Site. Except as otherwise explained herein, unless Simplicity has your consent, or is required (or permitted) by law, Simplicity will not share your Information with any unaffiliated entity.

    2. Who Simplicity Shares Your Information With

      Notwithstanding the above, Simplicity may disclose Information to

      1. a Simplicity affiliate;
      2. a third party in the event that Simplicity sells all or part of its assets to such third party or merges with or is acquired by the third party; or
      3. a third party vendor if necessary to provide you with a product or service that you have requested.
      Simplicity may also disclose Information about you to others if we have a good faith belief that we are required to do so by law or legal process, to respond to claims, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Simplicity or others.

  4. Children

    Simplicity does not sell products and services to children. If you are under 18, you may use the Web Site only with involvement of a parent or guardian. In response to concerns about protecting children's privacy online, Congress enacted the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA"). COPPA sets forth rules and procedures governing the ways in which web sites may collect, use and disclose any personal information regarding children under the age of 13. Therefore, in accordance with this Privacy Policy and COPPA regulations, Simplicity does not:

    1. Request or knowingly collect Personal Information from persons under 13 years of age ("Children");
    2. Knowingly use or share Personal Information from persons under 13 years of age with third parties;
    3. Give Children the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute Personal Information; and
    4. Entice Children with the prospect of a special game, prize, or other activity to divulge Personal Information.
    Simplicity does not knowingly collect information about Children and believes that children should get their parents' consent before giving out any personally identifiable information. We encourage you to participate in your child's experience on the Internet and to review important safety tips with each child before he or she explores the Internet.

  5. Security Procedures

    Simplicity operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Simplicity also uses Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") software to protect your information during transmission. Only authorized individuals of Simplicity, who must access said information in order to provide Simplicity's products, services and customer service to you, may access the Personal Information. Simplicity makes no representations or warranties with regard to the sufficiency of these security measures. Simplicity shall not be responsible for any actual or consequential damages that result from a lapse in compliance with this Privacy Policy as a result of a security breach or a technical malfunction. It is important that you protect your user name and password and not share them with others. Certain information may be transmitted to you by electronic mail. Although it is illegal to intercept or disclose these messages under Federal law, these transmissions are not secure.
