Welcome to the official web site (the “Site”) of the Network of Enlightened Women, Inc. (“NeW”).
Please note the distinction between our privacy practices in connection with your visit to the Site, and our Terms of Service.
Information Collected and How It Is Collected
Voluntary Information: We may collect personal information you voluntarily provide to us including, but not limited to your name, e-mail address, postal address, phone number, mobile number and geographic location. You may provide this information in a variety of ways, including but not limited to when you request information, register, or make a purchase. We may also collect demographic information such as gender, date of birth, occupation, employer name and zip code. We may collect payment information such as credit card number where needed to complete a requested service or transaction.
Automatically Generated Information: We may also collect non-personally identifiable information that is generated automatically while you are visiting the Site or elsewhere on the Internet when our advertisements are served, also known as log files. This data includes, but is not limited to, information such as IP address, web pages visited before and after visiting the Site, date and time, domain type, type of mobile device you use, your device’s unique ID, web pages you view and links you click on within the Site and interactions with any advertisements that may be delivered by us or advertisements delivered by a third party advertising technology vendor. This type of information may be collected using different types of technologies, such as cookies and pixels. An IP address, for example, is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. When you visit the Site, we may view the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. We use this information to determine the general physical location of the device and understand from what regions of the world the Site visitors come. We also may use your non-personally identifiable information to enhance the Site.
Cookies and Other Technologies
Disabling Cookies: The ‘Help’ portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive cookies and how to disable cookies altogether. Note that if you reject or block cookies, it may affect your ability to enjoy the full functionality and experience of the Site.
Web Beacons: Pages of the Site (and our e-mails) may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit NeW, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an e-mail and for other related web site statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain web site content and verifying system and server integrity).

Additionally, if you submit personally identifiable information to NeW, some information, such as your name, email address, and mailing address, may be exchanged with or sold to other organizations. You may opt out of such membership list exchanges or sales by following the Opt-Out Procedures, below.
We may also aggregate your personal information with the information of others and may disclose such information in aggregate form for marketing and promotional purposes in a way that would not identify you individually.
Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information: NeW or our service providers or agents that provide services for us may use non-personally identifiable information as part of the Services to better tailor advertisements and other content in an effort to create a more relevant experience for each person that visits the Site or elsewhere on the Internet. This non-personally identifiable information may also be used to predict responses to advertisements, to help determine which ads perform best and which content is most appropriate for different individuals, to measure and optimize the effectiveness of advertisements and to provide aggregate reporting to our service providers or agents and for our and their internal purposes.
CONTESTS, SWEEPSTAKES AND OTHER PROMOTIONS: On the Site, you may wish to participate in contests and other promotions that we may offer from time to time. Through these promotions, you may choose to participate in activities such as sharing information found on the Site with others and sending e-mail invitations. In connection with any contests and other promotions that we may offer from time to time via the Site, we use the information you provide to administer the contests and other promotions. Subject to applicable contractual or legal restrictions, we also may use the information to communicate with you, or the other people you select, about our products and services or our service providers or agents or partners may use such information to communicate with you about the contests and other promotions or their products and services. Additionally, if you submit personally identifiable information to NeW in connection to contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions, some information, such as your name, email address, and mailing address, may be exchanged with or sold to other organizations. You may opt out of such membership list exchanges or sales by following the Opt-Out Procedures, below. If you choose to participate in these promotions, and are eligible to do so, we may ask you for information such as your name, e-mail address, date of birth and telephone number. Official Contest Rules will accompany any contest sponsored by NeW.
THIRD PARTY FEATURES
Additionally, in the event that we offer a message board or any other interactive or social-type feature on a web site administered directly by us, please be aware that these areas may allow you to publicly post, and share with other users, certain messages, content, or other information (e.g., stories, pictures, ingredients, tips, etc.). Although we may take certain precautions to protect those who use these areas of one of our web sites, we encourage you to be wary of giving out any personal information in such public forums. The information you post can be collected and used by people you don’t know. We cannot guarantee the privacy and safety of these areas and are therefore not responsible for any information you choose to post. Your use of these features is fully at your own risk.
Submitting your e-mail: Submitting your address anywhere on the Site may result in your e-mail address being added to the NeW e-mail list. You may unsubscribe to NeW e-mails at any time by opting out of e-mail subscriptions with the ‘unsubscribe’ link included in each e-mail. If you do so, your e-mail address will be removed from our marketing list. Please allow us a reasonable period of time in order to satisfy your request, as some promotions may already be in process.
We employ and maintain technology and security measures designed to protect your personal information. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us.
To opt out of having your information exchanged with or sold to other organizations, or to correct any information, send us email as follows:

In your email, make sure to give us your:
- Full Name
