Collection of your Personal Information
As an e-commerce and community website, PHG collects the following personal information from its website visitors (“PI”):
- E-mail address

Use of your Personal Information
PHG does not sell, rent or lease PI to third parties. It is possible that PHG may use PI to inform you of other products and services available from PHG and its affiliates. PHG may also contact you via surveys or other means to conduct research about your opinion of current services or potential new services that may be offered. In those cases, your PI is not disclosed to a third party by PHG.
PHG occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on its behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings and packages, providing customer support, processing transactions, conducting surveys or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the PI they need to deliver the service. Such service providers would be under an agreement to maintain the confidentiality of your information and be prohibited from using that information for any other purpose. We use common carriers to deliver packages and mailings.
