Privacy Policy

Last updated: December 23, 2011

We know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By using the Karma Science mobile application (the “Application”), you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

What Personal Information Do We Gather and Use?

Personally Identifiable Information. When you use the Application you may provide certain personally identifiable information, such as your name, email address, telephone number, postal address, credit card number, expiration date, authentication code, or similar information. We may also collect personally identifiable information automatically when you use the Application or the Services. Some of the personally identifiable information we receive from you is needed to set up your account and send your gift. You can choose not to provide certain personally identifiable information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of the Services or other features available through the Application.

We use personally identifiable information to respond to your requests, sell you a gift, improve your shopping experience, customize future shopping for you, improve the Application, develop other mobile applications and Internet websites, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, and to communicate with you. We also use such information to troubleshoot problems, resolve disputes, accomplish administrative tasks, enforce our agreements with you, including our License Agreement, Terms and Conditions and this Privacy Policy, comply with applicable law and cooperate with law enforcement activities.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We also receive and store certain non-personally identifiable information, such as your mobile device type, operating system type, browser type and the like. This type of personal information does not identify you. We may also anonymize your personally identifiable information.

Does Karma Science Share the Information It Receives?

We will not sell your personally identifiable information to anyone. We share personal information only as described below.

Affiliated Businesses We Control. Subject to applicable legal restrictions, we may share your personal information with the affiliated businesses we control to make sure that your experience with us is as seamless as possible and that you have the full benefit of our offerings. The use of such information by such controlled affiliates remains subject to this Privacy Policy.

Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with product/service suppliers that we do not control (“third party”). When you use the Application or Services to transact business, we may share your personally identifiable information with a third party. Except as specifically set forth in this Privacy Policy, we do not provide personally identifiable information to third parties for the marketing of their own products and services without your consent.

Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. We share customer's personally identifiable information with these agents as we deem necessary for them to perform their functions.

Promotional Offers: We may enter into alliances, partnerships or other business arrangements with third parties for the purpose of providing you information regarding products and services that we think may be of interest to you. In addition, we may also use personally identifiable information to notify you about important changes to our mobile applications, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. If you do not want to receive such offers, please adjust your customer communication preferences.

Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in this Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the event that Karma Science is acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Protection of Company and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Company, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

How Secure Is Information About Me?

  • We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
  • We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
  • It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.


Karma Science does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use Karma Science only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.

Updating and Correcting Information

We encourage you to promptly update your Personally Identifiable Information if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on the Application. But you may delete the Application from your device at any time. In addition, in may be impossible for us to completely delete all of your information because we periodically backup information.

What Choices Do I Have?

  • As stated previously, you can always opt not to disclose information, even though it may be needed to take advantage of or register for certain features of the Service and services.
  • You are able to add or update certain information on pages, such as your email, user name, and credit card. When you update information, however, we often maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records.
  • You may request deletion of your Company account by sending an e-mail to contact@getkarma.com. Please note that some information may remain in our records after deletion of your account.
  • If you do not wish to receive email or other mail from us, please indicate this preference by changing your account settings, or by notifying us at contact@getkarma.com. Please note that if you do not want to receive legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Policy, those legal notices will still govern your use of the Service, and you are responsible for reviewing such legal notices for changes.
