Privacy Policy

Metaprices is commited to protecting your privacy.

What this Privacy Policy Covers

  • This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for the Metaprices web site. It covers our treatment of the personal information that Metaprices collects and stores when you use our services.
  • This policy does not apply to the third party web sites of merchants that we link to from our site, such as those listed in our search results. Metaprices does not own or control these web sites.

Information Collection and Use

Metaprices is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone.

In order to create and use a Metaprices personal shopping list, a user must first complete a registration form. During registration a user is required to give their email address, password, and geographic location (Country, U.S. State). This information may be used in several ways: to serve as a unique identifier for your personal shopping list, to contact you about news or important information concerning your account, and to provide you with customized advertising/content tailored to your specific geographic location.

Personal Shopping Lists
Personal Shopping Lists are used to keep track of products that you are interested in buying. Metaprices may use the content of these lists to display targeted advertising to you, but at no time will advertisers have knowledge of or access to your personally identifiable information.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information associated with the user. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in with an email address and password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to use a Personal Shopping List. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Our cookies can be removed at anytime while accessing our site using our Logout feature.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This information will not be linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Metaprices is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the Metaprices web site.

Email to a Friend
If a user wishes to send search results to a friend, we ask them for the sender's and recipient's email addresses. Metaprices will automatically send the friend a one-time email containing the search results as well as links to our site. Metaprices uses this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email, and does not store the information.

This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. Your Metaprices account information is password-protected for your privacy and security.

Special Offers
Established members may occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, or a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we will present the option to not receive these types of communications.

Site and Service Updates
We may send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to un-subscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email.

Correction/Updating/Removing Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes it can be updated at any time using our Edit feature. If a user no longer wants to use our service and wishes their information to be removed from our database this can be done by emailing remove@metabuy.com.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Home page so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Questions or Suggestions
Questions or suggestions concerning this policy or any other matter should submitted by email to feedback@metabuy.com.
