Definitions

Personal information is defined as any identifying information about an individual or group of individuals, including name, date of birth, address, phone number, e-mail address, health history, financial data, credit card numbers, payment records, credit records, opinions and personal views.

Business information refers to: Herbal Magic Corp.’s business address, telephone number, ownership details, executive officers and directors, job titles, business registration numbers and financial status.

Consent occurs and is obtained when an individual signs an application or online form containing personal information, thereby authorizing Herbal Magic Corp. to collect, use, and disclose the individual's personal information for the purposes stated on the form or within appropriate use.

Implied consent is granted by the individual when he/she signs an application, form or agrees to the terms of use on a website. This allows Herbal Magic Corp. to obtain or verify information from third parties (such as banks, credit bureaus, lenders, or insurance companies) in the process of assessing the eligibility of an individual, customer, client, job applicant, or business partner.
