This privacy policy applies to web sites owned and operated by BrandVia Alliance, Inc. (“BrandVia”, “us”, “we”, “our”) and to web stores which are operated by us on behalf of our clients as the authorized merchant of branded promotional merchandise. This privacy policy describes how BrandVia collects, shares, secures and uses the personal information you provide on our website. It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information.

Information Collection and Use

Information BrandVia gathers on these sites is strictly limited to the information we need to accept, process and fulfill orders on this site, to provide customer service, to monitor and evaluate the site’s activity and performance, and to provide reports to the clients on whose behalf we operate the web store.

We may collect the following personal information from you:

  • Contact information, such as: name, email address, mailing address, phone number
  • Billing information, such as: credit card number, billing address
  • Shipping information, such as: ship-to address, notes, and contact information

We may also collect the following information from you:

  • Information about your business, such as: company name, company size, business type
  • Demographic information, such as: education, gender, interests and zip code

We may also collect, from you, the following personal information about your contacts: name, physical address, phone number. When you provide us with personal information about your contacts, we will only use this information for the specific reason for which it is provided. If you believe that one of your contacts has provided us with your personal information and you would like to request that it be removed from our database, please contact us using our Data Erasure Form.

We may also provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personal information from you. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you, therefore, have a choice of whether to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as email address or phone number), and demographic information (such as zip code).

We use this information to contact you if you indicate that you were not satisfied with a product or service you received from us, to evaluate the overall user satisfaction of our programs, or to offer you additional services. We store the information we collect on servers located in the United States of America.

Cookies and Tracking Technologies

BrandVia only uses cookies that help the website to function and to track how you interact with our website. We may receive reports from our partners based on the use of these technologies on an individual as well as aggregated basis. You can use the Cookie Settings link in the footer to manage your cookies, and to view our cookie declaration table with a description of the cookies we use.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically. This information may include Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the site.

We do not display advertising on our website, and we will not use your information for advertising purposes.

Information Sharing

We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy policy.

BrandVia does not share personally identifiable information we gather from this site with any other entity, public or private, except as required to provide the services described above. We will not sell or give away any lists or other data that we may retain, and we do not purchase such information from other sources.

We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as shipping your order or processing your payment. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

We may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

If BrandVia is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.

User Access and Choice

You may elect to have your personal information completely removed from our database by using our Data Erasure Form.

Upon request, BrandVia will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. If you wish to access, correct, update, or remove any personal information about you that may be in our records, please fill out the aforementioned form with the details of your request. If you wish to contact us further, please find complete contact information on our contact page.

We will retain your personal information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

We will also send you service-related email announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. You do not have an option to opt out of these emails, which are not promotional in nature.


The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about the security on our website, you may use the information on our Contact page to reach us.

Links to 3rd Party Sites

Our sites include links to other websites whose privacy practices may differ from those of BrandVia. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any website you visit.


If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. BrandVia does not store this information.

Social Media Widgets

Our website may include Social Media Features, such as the Facebook Like button, and Widgets, such as the Share this button or interactive mini-programs, that run on our site. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social Media Features and Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.
