Privacy Policy

We at Matuse, INC. (“Matuse”) know that privacy is a major concern of visitors to our web site (“Site”). This Privacy Policy outlines the types of information that are collected by Matuse on its Site, how we use and protect it, and when we share it with third parties. This Policy also explains the choices that you can make about the way your information is collected and used. This Policy applies only to personal information collected via this Site, but not to advertisements, promotions or offers that we may sponsor or participate in on web sites owned by third parties. Nor does this online Privacy Policy apply to personal information we may collect offline (e.g., such as at a Matuse sponsored event). By using this Site, you signify that you agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy.


Matuse does not collect any Personal Information via this Site unless you provide it to us voluntarily. As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means any information that is linked to your identity, such as your name, contact information and information about your registered Matuse gear. We may collect some or all of these types of Personal Information when you register your Matuse gear on our Site or participate in an online sweepstakes, contest, game, survey, questionnaire or promotion. When you provide us with Personal Information, you are authorizing us to use that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Like most web sites, this Site gathers traffic patterns, site usage information and other aggregated data in order to evaluate our visitors’ preferences and the effectiveness of our Site. This aggregate usage data does not identify you individually. We may share anonymous, aggregated statistics about visitors to our Site with others outside our company, or we may allow third-parties to collect aggregate data through our Site, but such information will not identify you personally. At this time, our Site does not use “cookies” or web beacons.


We use the Personal Information you share with us to provide the services you request (for example, to enter you in a sweepstakes or register your Matuse gear). We also use Personal Information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, and to improve this Site. We also may use it to contact you regarding Matuse’s products or promotions that may be of interest to you (including those we may offer jointly with other companies). At any time, however, you may opt out of future communications by sending us a reply message asking to unsubscribe from our contact lists. With Whom We May Share Information

In the course of doing business, we employ other companies to perform a variety of functions on our behalf. For example, at times we may retain third parties to analyze, update and correct data we collect on our Sites, including Personal Information, to help us improve our products and our Site. In addition, we may share Personal Information with agents, suppliers, fulfillment houses and other third parties to order to deliver prizes, information, products or services. These suppliers and other third parties may have access to your Personal Information if it is needed to perform their functions for Matuse, but they are not authorized by us to use your Personal Information in any way other than the intended use. We also may share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our Site with advertisers, business partners and other third parties. For example, we may tell a business partner the number of men and the number of women that entered a contest, but we do not disclose Personal Information about such contestants.

We may disclose any Personal Information to law enforcement, government officials or other third parties in order to protect the online community or our rights and property, to respond to a legal request for information, or as appropriate to address inquiries or problems. In addition, we may disclose Personal Information in conjunction with a merger, reorganization or sale to a third party of our company or a major portion of its assets.


Matuse takes commercially reasonable precautions to keep your Personal Information secure. All access to the information we collect is subject to physical, electronic and managerial restrictions to prevent unauthorized access, modification or misuse. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online, and you do so at your own risk.


Matuse is committed to protecting the online privacy of children. It is our policy to prohibit children younger than 13 years old from registering on our Site or otherwise submitting Personal Information to us. For example, only a parent or guardian may register a child’s Matuse gear on this Site, and only persons at least 13 years old may enter an online sweepstakes on this Site. Changes to Our Privacy Policy Matuse reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at our discretion. We encourage you to visit this area frequently to stay informed about our online privacy practices. Your continued use of the Site signifies your agreement to any new or modified terms. Links to Other Web Sites Users should be aware that this Site includes links to other web sites that are not owned or controlled by Matuse, such as the web sites of advertisers, sponsors and business partners. These other web sites may collect data or solicit Personal Information, and may have privacy policies different from this Privacy Policy. Matuse does not endorse and makes no guarantee or representation as to the sufficiency, accuracy or completeness of the content or privacy policy of any third-party web site to which you may be linked from this Site. We encourage you to learn about a company’s online privacy practices before disclosing any Personal Information.
