Privacy & Security
As used herein the following terms have the definitions set forth below.
Non-Personally Identifying Information includes your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, the type of computer you are using; your computer browser information; the Internet address that you visited prior to and after reaching our Site; and the name of the domain and host you used to access the Internet (your web service provider identity). This information is non-personally identifiable and/or anonymous. Non–Personally Identifying Information is information that, without more, cannot be directly associated with a specific person or entity.
Personally Identifying Information
Personally Identifying Information is information that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person or entity. This information includes, for example, a name, address, telephone number or email address. Personally Identifying Information also includes information about a person or entity’s activities – including as gathered by means of cookies, Web beacons or in some other manner – when linked to information directly associated with them. Cookies and web beacons are defined below.
A Web beacon, or Web bug, is a sometimes invisible image embedded in a Web page, Web based document or e–mail message. Web beacons permit website operators or third parties to monitor the IP address and other information about the browser and computer downloading the image. It is possible to use Web beacons in combination with Personally Identifying Information to profile the online activities of website visitors.
Information that is not Personally Identifying Information is often also referred to as "Aggregate Information." This term includes Non-Personally Identifying Information such as a user's Internet Protocol (IP) address, Web site/page traffic and other statistics, and demographic data. Most aggregate information is collected automatically. Depending on its settings, your web browser may automatically send Aggregate Information to us.
Puro Chile™ and/or Pure Chile™
Puro Chile™ and Pure Chile™ are the trade names for the Pure Chile Corporation. References to either are equally applicable to the other. Pure Chile™ and Puro Chile™ are trademarks of the Pure Chile Corporation, are protected by international and US law, and may not be used without advance express written permission.

As a condition of permitting you to use our Site, Puro Chile™ does not collect or require Users to furnish Personally Identifying Information.
