Privacy

Policy

Your privacy is important to Pearl Surrogacy. Because of the nature of our business, Pearl Surrogacy collects identifying and non-identifying personal information from potential surrogates and intended parents. Pearl Surrogacy obtains this information from various forms of communication with you, including via our website, telephone call, Skype and/or documents you submit to us.

This Privacy Policy tells you about:

  • What personal identifying and non-identifying information is collected and how that information is used.
  • Our policy regarding sharing of information.
  • The security procedures in place to protect your information.
  • How you can let us know of any questions or concerns.

Information collection, use and sharing

Pearl Surrogacy is the sole owner of the information we collect. We only have access to collect personal information that you voluntarily give us. We will not sell, trade or rent this information. We may share your information with trusted third parties who help operate our website and conduct our business. These trusted third parties agree to keep your information confidential.

Pearl Surrogacy will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party, other than as stated above unless you give us permission to do so, or it is necessary for us to do so, such as to comply with government reporting requirements.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future about our services.

Types of information we collect

When you visit Pearl Surrogacy’s website, we collect general information that is not identifiable or personal to you. That means we cannot use this information to identify or contact you. This information may include demographic data, technical data and/or data you provide to us through your use of our website, such as what pages you visit or terms you enter into our search function. You can visit our website anonymously without providing any personal identifying information.

We may also collect personal identifying and non-identifying information you provide to us. At certain places on our website, we ask you to provide us with personal information. You are never required to provide this information. However, you may not be able to use all of the features of our website if you elect not to provide the requested information.

How we use the information we collect

Pearl Surrogacy uses your non-identifying personal information in two ways. First, to understand users of our website, review demographic information about our website’s users, to improve your experience on our website and to enhance the content of our website. Second, as part our mutual matching process, we provide non-identifying personal information about our surrogates to potential intended parents and non-identifying personal information about intended parents to potential surrogates. We will obtain your consent before any non-identifying personal information is exchanged for matching purposes.

Pearl Surrogacy uses your personal identifying information to respond to your requests and to allow you to use our website-based application components. If you contact us via email, we use your personal identifying information to respond. We may save questions or comments you provide to us via email. If we use any of these questions or comments on our website, we will not include any personal identifying information without your permission.

Your access to and control over information

You may opt out of future contacts from Pearl Surrogacy at any time. You can also contact us at any time if you have questions or concerns about your information.

Security

As part of the surrogate review and mutual matching process, Pearl Surrogacy will necessarily acquire personal identifying information. This information will be securely stored and will only be released with your permission except: if we believe it needs to be released to prevent or lessen the risk of harm to an individual or the public, or if we are required to do so by law or to comply with any government reporting requirements, or to a trusted third party to help us operate our website or business.

Pearl Surrogacy takes precautions to protect your information.
