5. Who is collecting my information?
When you are on a Prestige Brands site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Prestige Brands alone, unless specifically stated otherwise. If data is being collected and/or maintained by any company other than Prestige Brands or an agent for Prestige Brands, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service or purchasing those particular products.

We may share the personal data you provide with other Prestige Brands agents, contractors or our business partners for the purposes of performing services for Prestige Brands. Prestige Brands also may share aggregated data with others. Aggregated data does not include personally identifiable information. We also believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, pursuant to our Terms of Access and Use, or as otherwise required by law. Except as provided above or in the event of a merger, consolidation, or sale of all or substantially all of Prestige Brands’ assets, we will not share any of your information with any third party without your permission.

9. What happens when I leave prestigebrandsinc.com to visit a linked site?
Parts of the Web site include hyperlinks to the sites of other companies. When you leave prestigebrandsinc.com to visit one of these sites, the only information transferred to the third party is the fact that you came from prestigebrandsinc.com. This practice allows the third party to monitor its own Web site traffic, but does not provide it with any information about you. Prestige Brands is not responsible or liable for the independent privacy policies of third party Web sites. You should consult the privacy policies at third party Web sites to determine how your information may be used.
