We and our service providers may use this information to provide you with personalized advertising and other content, including advertising and content based on your location.

If our “Tell a friend” feature is available within a particular PurplePTSD Offering and you choose to participate in it, your email will be shared with the person to whom you send the PurplePTSD Offering using this feature. We may use an IP address to surface the appropriate country-based version of a PurplePTSD Offering to a user, or to exercise our ability to restrict access to the site by users who have violated our Terms of Use.

We and our third party service providers use cookies and other technologies, such as mobile device identifiers, to enhance your experience with PurplePTSD Offerings.

This helps us and our service providers provide more relevant advertising to you. We and our third party service providers may also use web beacons to monitor user behavior and collect information about visitors viewing a web page.

We may use information collected to calculate aggregate, anonymized statistics about our user community for the purpose of enhancing our PurplePTSD Offerings, or for security purposes.

If you access via Social Media we may use your social networking site profile ID to link your social networking site account with personalized PurplePTSD advertisements on the social networking site. We may use your social networking site first, last and user names and icon to identify you to the social networking site account you’ve provided us for the purposes of competitions and sweepstakes.

If you access Social Media and provide us with another person’s contact information for purposes of delivering information, we may use this information to contact and, if necessary, remind that person that she or he has been invited to join a PurplePTSD Offering. All invitees are provided with the option not to receive further invitations from PurplePTSD.

We at PurplePTSD take reasonable measures to help protect the information we collect from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.


We may share customer information with PurplePTSD Affiliates, and as described below.

Third Party Marketplaces and Service Providers:

We may disclose your personal information as well as aggregate, anonymous information to third party business partners, marketplaces, and third parties who perform services for us, such as credit card processing, prize fulfillment, delivering packages, sending postal mail, collecting and analyzing data, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), and providing advertising and marketing assistance, including serving ads on our behalf on third party websites and mobile applications and serving ads on behalf of third parties within certain PurplePTSD Offerings. Those third parties have access to your personal information only as necessary to perform their functions, and for no other purposes.

Business Transfers:

As PurplePTSD continues to grow, we might sell or buy certain subsidiaries and/or business units. In such transactions, customer information is generally one of the transferred assets. Also, in the unlikely event that PurplePTSD or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information would in most cases be one of the transferred assets.

Protection of PurplePTSD and Others:

We may also disclose your information if there is a violation of the Terms of Use or other agreements; if we have a good faith belief that we have to disclose it in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, or legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant or subpoena); or if needed to protect the rights, property or safety of PurplePTSD, our customers or others. This includes exchanging information with entities for fraud detection and protection, and credit risk reduction.


You may contact us about your information and your choices for limiting the use and disclosure of your information by emailing us at info(at) or by sending us postal mail at: PurplePTSD, P.O. Box 17368, Minneapolis, MN 55417.

Promotional email communications:

When you subscribe your email address via a PurplePTSD Offering, you may be automatically registered to receive one or more of our promotional e- newsletters. Note that when you provide an email address through a PurplePTSD Offering, we treat that as a request to be enrolled in one of our promotional e-newsletter lists, even if you previously opted out of receiving newsletters from us, but if you change your mind and wish to opt out again, you may do so at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any newsletter and then following the instructions provided. If you express interest in a PurplePTSD Offering by clicking on a banner within a newsletter, you may be automatically registered to receive newsletters relating to the PurplePTSD Offering that appeared in the banner.

At any time, you may opt-out of receiving a newsletter by selecting the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any newsletter. We treat each PurplePTSD Offering individually, so if you are receiving mailings from more than one PurplePTSD Offering, if you want to unsubscribe you must do so with respect to each individually. Please note that we reserve the right to send you non-promotional, account or administrative emails even if you opt out of receiving promotional e-newsletters.

Cookies, Online Advertising and Analytics:

Please refer to your browser settings and help section to learn about blocking, erasing or being notified of cookies. You can manage your Flash cookies by using Adobe’s Flash management here. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of PurplePTSD Offerings’ essential features, we recommend that you leave cookies turned on.

Mobile Advertising:

Most mobile devices provide the ability to opt out of the collection and use of information from the apps you use for purposes of serving ads targeted to your interests. For more information, and to exercise these choices, consult the settings on your device.


PurplePTSD Offerings may allow you to share information through social media (such as by logging in through a social media account or using a “Like” button”) or contain links to social media services or other third parties. The use of these features and links are subject to the privacy policies of those companies and your settings on those services. PurplePTSD has no control over, and is not responsible for, the information submitted to or collected by social networks or other third parties. We encourage you to review those third party privacy policies to understand the way your information may be collected and handled by such third parties.


PurplePTSD Offerings are designed to avoid the collection and use of “personal information” as defined in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) from children under 13 other than for support of internal operations. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children. If you are under 13, you may not register or otherwise provide any personal information to us.

PurplePTSD respects the privacy of parents and children and is committed to complying with COPPA . If a parent believes that his or her child has submitted personal information to PurplePTSD, he or she can contact us via email info(at) or postal mail at: PurplePTSD, P.O. Box 17368, Minneapolis, MN 55417. We will take steps to promptly delete the information upon learning that it relates to a child under the age of 13. We recognize the importance of safeguarding the privacy of children and encourage parents to check and monitor their children’s use of online activities regularly.


By accessing and/or using any of the PurplePTSD Offerings, you signify your understanding of and agreement with this Privacy Policy, and to our Terms of Use. If you do not agree with our policies, please do not access or use any PurplePTSD’s Offerings.


We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we post changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the “last modified” date at the top of this page. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to be informed of how PurplePTSD protects your information.
