Privacy Policy:

Smarter Media Associates, LLC, owners of SmarterSamples.com, take the privacy of your information very seriously.  We will never rent, sell or give away any of your information without your consent.

When you signup for a free sample, information may be given to the supplier of the free sample for order processing.  How they use the information depends on their privacy policy.  Generally we provide the policy for viewing. 

Here is a detailed description of how we keep your information safe.  If you have any questions, comments or concerns feel free to let us know by emailing admin@smartersamples.com

What we collect:

Questions Answered:

When logging into your account you will be able to answer a series of questions about yourself.  Answering these questions help us pair you up with suppliers of free samples. Any information entered is stored in a secure database and is kept highly secretive.  Only authorized developers, and our technical support team who are familiar with our stringent security policies have access to the database where your “questions answered” are stored.   These developers are limited by contract and/or law from the use of such information for purposes outside of maintaning the site.  Suppliers will not be able to see the specific questions answered (with the exceptions listed in the next paragraph). Site Administration, Customer Support and general account management services does not have the ability to view the specific questions that you answer.  .

 Suppliers may choose to limit free sample opportunities only to members who answer certain questions or provide specific answers to certain questions. By accepting a free sample opportunity, suppliers may know certain information related to your “Questions Answered” based on the limitations of their campaign.  For instance if a baby formula company wishes to provide samples only  to people who are currently expecting between a certain date, by clicking accept on a free sample opportunity, you will be telling the company that you indicated you are expecting between the certain date. No personally identifiable information will be given to any company until you sign up for a free sample.  Once you accept a free sample, address information from your profile section will be given to the company for processing of the free sample.  

Your profile information:

Information in your profile section includes the basic registration information given upon signup. This information is also stored in a secure server.  This information (excluding your password) may be viewable by customer service personnel and management who have been familiarized with our stringent security policies.  Information here will also be used so that customer service can better serve you. 

Your E-mail address:

If you have opted to, you will receive free sample alerts whenever we place a new offer that you qualify for on our network.  On the bottom of every e-mail we send there will be an unsubscribe option. We also may respond to any comments or inquiries you send to us. After unsubscribing once you will not receive any more e-mail from us.  In addition, you will receive an e-mail to confirm your e-mail address when you sign up for an account.  If you wish you may signup to get updates whenever a free sample is available. You can change your subscription options any time through logging in and editing your profile.

Account Deletion:

If you no longer wish to keep an account with us, you may delete the account at any time by e-mailing us.  We will do our best to comply with all requests within a reasonable amount of time. Once we have your account deleted, all personally identifiable information including “Questions Asked” and “Profile Information” will be permanently deleted from our database.  If you change your mind later, we will no longer be able to retrieve any information regarding your account.  The deletion of your account will not affect suppliers’ ability to see information related to the samples you have already requested.
