Microbial LLC ("Microbial LLC") is committed to respecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement is designed to inform you about the manner in which we treat the collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide to us via the Microbial LLC website (www.themicrobial.com) as well as to other websites in the Microbial LLC family of websites (collectively, “Site” or “Sites”). Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated if it is collected online. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.
What information is captured from visitors to the Site?
For each visitor to the Site, Microbial LLC servers may automatically collect information about which pages are visited and for how long, as well as the IP address, browser type, and operating platform of visitors. This information is anonymous and is gathered through our servers' log files. This information is used for internal review, to tailor information to individual visitors and for Site traffic audits. We also may provide this information (as well as information from third-party market researchers) about our users on an aggregated, anonymous basis to our affiliates and strategic partners.
What personally identifiable information is collected from me?
We only solicit personal information from Site visitors on a voluntary basis. On certain pages of our Sites, you can make requests and/or receive materials. The types of personal information collected at these pages are your name, e-mail address and standard contact information, including addresses and phone numbers. We may also ask you to voluntarily provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experience with the products and services we provide, product preferences, and contact preferences. Microbial LLC does not require this information to obtain access to any part of our Site. Certain of our Sites may allow you to make purchases. If you choose to make purchases, those Sites may collect your payment information as well as other contact information.
Microbial LLC has no intention of collecting any personal data from individuals under 13 years of age. Recognizing that under some circumstances children may be able to access this Site, Microbial LLC is prepared to undertake all reasonable efforts to delete such information upon the request of a parent or guardian.
How is my information used?
Personal information collected from you through the Site is used by Microbial LLC to enable us to answer questions and process requests that are received electronically. We also may use this information to send you e-mail or other notices about updates to the Site or our products or services. You will always have the option to opt-out of any such mailing list. Microbial LLC will not sell, rent or lease your personally identifiable information to others without your consent, except as provided in this policy. In general, the information you provide will be used to support your customer relationship with Microbial LLC. Your information may be shared with agents, contractors or business partners for the purpose of performing services for Microbial LLC.
We want to help you quickly find information on Microbial LLC and alert you to specific offers, updated information, and other new products and services from Microbial LLC. Accordingly, we may send you direct mailings about our various products and services or other products and services we feel may be of interest to you. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply "opt-out" by the means provided for in the mailings. If you have communicated with us through this Site and wish to have personal information removed, please write us at:

We may work with third party advertising companies that gather information about your visits to the Site and elsewhere on the Internet. These ad companies may use this information to provide you with more relevant advertising, content, and for other advertising related purposes. For more information about third party advertising networks, visit http://www.aboutads.info/consumers. To opt-out of certain targeted advertising, visit www.aboutads.info/choices. Once you click the link, you may choose to opt-out of such advertising from all participating advertising companies or only advertising provided by specific advertising companies. If you opt-out of this type of advertising, you will still see advertising on the Internet and advertising from Microbial LLC, but those ads may not be tailored to your Site usage and may be less relevant to you.
Other than as described herein, Microbial LLC does not track your activity over time and across different websites or online services except as among the related websites that constitute the Microbial LLC Site and as otherwise described herein.
Do Not Track
The Do Not Track (“DNT”) privacy preference, which is offered by some web browsers (http://donottrack.us/), allows you to opt-out of tracking by websites and online services. Microbial LLC does not currently recognize DNT signals. Therefore, the Microbial LLC information collection and disclosure practices and your choices regarding our collection and disclosures will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Statement, whether or not a DNT signal is received.
We do not permit our third-party service providers to collect information from the Site for other websites or for their own purposes other than as described herein.
Who is collecting my information?
When you are on a Microbial LLC Site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Microbial LLC alone, unless specifically stated otherwise. If data is being collected and/or maintained by any company other than Microbial LLC or an agent for Microbial LLC, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer. If you do not want your data to be shared with that third party, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service or purchasing those particular products.
Please be aware that Microbial LLC advertisers or websites that have links on our Site may collect personally identifiable information about you if you click on their links or advertisements. The information practices of those websites linked to Microbial LLC either through advertisements or other hyperlinks are not covered by this Privacy Statement.
With whom does Microbial LLC share my information?
How do I access, update or delete my information?
Please contact us via our Contact Us page.
What does "opt-out" mean?
To "opt-out" means that you have notified Microbial LLC that we no longer have permission to use your information for a particular purpose. For example, when we send you information on a new product, you will be given the opportunity to "opt-out" of receiving such information in the future.
What happens when I leave themicrobial.com to visit a linked website?
Parts of the Site include hyperlinks to the websites of other companies. When you leave prestigebrands.com to visit one of these websites, 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 website traffic, but does not provide it with any information about you. Microbial LLC is not responsible or liable for the independent privacy policies of third party websites. You should consult the privacy policies at third party websites to determine how your information may be used.
What happens if I e-mail Microbial LLC?
Microbial LLC may provide e-mail links on its Sites to further facilitate communication between Microbial LLC and you. Information collected through electronic mail may be shared with our customer service department, employees or other third parties that perform services on our behalf. Unless otherwise noted, electronic mail on our Site is not a completely secure and confidential means of communication. Non-encrypted electronic communications may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users without your knowledge or permission while in transit to us. Therefore, we recommend that you contact us by phone using one of the numbers found on our Sites whenever you are communicating personal information to us.
Is my information secure?
Microbial LLC has taken commercially reasonable measures to keep all information from our online visitors as secure as possible against any unauthorized access or use. All information is protected by standard security measures which are periodically reviewed. Unless otherwise noted, electronic mail on our Site is not a completely secure and confidential means of communication. Non-encrypted electronic communications may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users without your knowledge or permission while in transit to us.
How do I contact Microbial LLC?
We can be reached via our Contact Us page.
What else should I know about my privacy?
Third-party web sites and services accessible through Microbial LLC have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of us. Microbial LLC has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions. Please be careful and responsible online. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. While we strive to protect your information, Microbial LLC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information through the transmission process and you do so at your own risk.
Please be advised that Microbial LLC may transfer personal information it collects outside your country of domicile to jurisdictions where data protection and privacy laws may be less stringent than the laws of your country. BY USING OUR SITE, YOU CONSENT TO THE TRANSFER AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT.
