We use the information we obtain from you to fulfill your purchase orders, administer returns, service your account, verify your identity, administer sweepstakes and contests in which you participate and provide you with information and services you request from us, personalize your shopping experience and provide marketing information. We may also use your information as otherwise necessary to conduct and improve our business and comply with legal obligations.

We do not sell the personal information of consumers. We may disclose the information we obtain with service providers that perform marketing, promotional and other services for us. Service providers who perform marketing services on our behalf are required by us to use personally identifiable information we share only to help us to provide you with products and services from Rapid Wave Media dba Media Shoppes. We may also provide information to carefully selected outside companies for the purpose of jointly marketing a product or service to you.

We also share information with other companies which provide us with services we use to conduct our business operations, including product recommendations and fraud prevention.

We may also disclose the information we obtain to any company which may in the future acquire Rapid Wave Media dba Media Shoppes or a portion of its business.

We may ask if you would like us to share your information with other unaffiliated third parties who are not described elsewhere in this policy.
