The types of information that we collect and our use of that information will depend on whether you are a Website Visitor, Checkout User, or Account User.
- Personal Information
The term “Personal Information”, as used in this Policy, refers to any information that can be used to identify a specific person, or any anonymous information (for example, IP Address) that is linked to a specific person. Personal information does not include information that has been aggregated or made anonymous such that it can no longer be reasonably associated with a specific person.
- Cookies and Web Server Logs
Similar to many commercial websites, we utilize “cookies” and other technologies to collect non-personally-identifiable information from our Website. “Cookies” are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a website. We use cookie data to measure web traffic and usage activity on our Website for purposes of improving and enhancing the functionality of our Website, to look for possible fraudulent activity, and to better understand the sources of traffic and transactions on our website. Cookies store information accessed through your browser to streamline activities on related web sites, and make the online experience easier and more personalized. Information gathered through cookies and web-server log files may include information such as the date and time of visits, IP addresses, the pages viewed, links to/from any page, and time spent browsing the site. Cookies also allow our servers to remember your account information for future visits and to provide personalized and streamlined information across related pages on our Website. Log files are used to monitor, analyze, measure, improve, and troubleshoot our Services. You can choose to disable cookies for our Website but this can limit your ability to use our Website and Services.

We may store your Personal Information in locations outside the direct control of Empire Life. For example, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers.
We may disclose your Personal Information to law enforcement, government officials, or other third parties if: (i) we are compelled to do so by subpoena, court order or other legal process, (ii) we must do so to comply with laws, statutes, rules or regulations, including credit card rules, (iii) we believe in good faith that the disclosure is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity, or to investigate violations of our Terms of Service.
We will only disclose your Personal Information in response to such a request if we believe in good faith that doing so is necessary to comply with applicable law or a legal obligation to which we are bound. If we receive such a request, we will use reasonable efforts to give you prompt notice, so you can contest it if you choose. We won’t provide you such notice if we determine in good faith that either (a) we are not permitted to provide it under applicable law, or (b) that doing so would result in an imminent risk of death, serious physical injury or significant property loss or damage to Empire Life or a third party.
In addition, in the event of a merger, reorganization, acquisition, bankruptcy, or other similar events, any information in our possession may be transferred to our successor or assign.
