The Company may collect information from you that you provide when making a purchase on our Site, logging into your account at the Site, registering with us, signing up for email updates, participating in one of our promotions, or participating in a survey. The information collected may include your name, mailing address, email address orphone number. In addition to your personal information, we may maintain a record of your purchases made on the Site. Also, when you visit our Site, we collect your Internet provider (IP) address, referring URL, browser type, operating system, and Internet Service Provider (ISP). We also may maintain a record of your activity on the website, including such information as pages visited, links clicked, non-sensitive text entered, and mouse movements. This information may in the aggregate identify you.
2. How is my personal information used?
Personal information that is collected may be used to administer the Site, confirm and process your order, contact you regarding updates to your order, or provide you with marketing information regarding the Site and product updates, special promotions, and product information pertaining to us or our Partners, and for similar issues. Marketing information may be provided via email. If you do not wish to receive marketing correspondence, please send us an email at email@example.com.
Purchase records or information collected regarding your website activity may be used to tailor our product offerings and marketing promotions to your interests and to make your shopping experience more enjoyable and convenient.
3. Will my personal information be shared?
The Company does not sell or rent customer email addresses to third parties. However, we may occasionally provide your email address and other personal information to our Partners for marketing and research purposes. In addition, we may provide your email or mailing address and other personal information to our Partners, agents, or other third parties, in order to facilitate order fulfillment.
In the event that a division, assets, or part or all of the Company is bought, sold, or otherwise transferred or is in the process of a potential transaction, customer information likely will be shared for evaluation purposes and included among the transferred business assets.
The Company also may disclose specific information when such disclosure appears necessary to comply with the law, a subpoena, or other litigation process or to protect the interests or safety of its visitors and customers, employees, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
We may engage third parties to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet and sometimes on the Site, or to collect and analyze information, such as how customers navigate the Site and which products they browse and purchase, so that we may make improvements to and enhance visitors’ use of the Site.
The Company uses Google Analytics to monitor activity on the Site. To learn how Google Analytics collects and processes data, please visit: “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps,” located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners.
4. What are cookies and how does the Company use them?
5. How do I review or update my information?
If you have a registered customer account with us, you may access your information via the “My Account” link on the Site. You may make changes to your personal information, email preferences, or mailing preferences there.
6. How do I opt out or remove my information?
If you prefer not to receive marketing emails and/or mailings from us, and you are a registered user online, you may “opt out” by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you only wish to unsubscribe from emails, click on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email.
We maintain a “Do Not Mail” file to ensure we honor your “opt out” requests. Please note that, since mailings are planned in advance, it may take up to eight weeks for your mailing “opt out” to become effective. If you make purchases from our website, you will still receive order and shipping confirmation emails. In addition customer service may need to contact you by phone, email, or mail with questions related to your order.
7. What steps does the Company take to keep my information secure?
The security of your personal information is very important to us. We have implemented measures to ensure your information is processed confidentially, accurately, and securely. Our website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt your order information, such as your name, address, and credit card number, during data transmission. Once you begin the checkout process you will be in secure mode and should see either a solid key icon or a locked padlock icon at the bottom of your Internet browser window. In addition, the beginning of the URL address at the top of your browser should change from “http” to “https” – the “s” standing for secure.
We restrict access to personal information collected about you at our web site to our employees, our Partners’ employees, or others who need to know that information to provide services to you or in the course of conducting our normal business operations. While no web site can guarantee security, we maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information collected via the web site. We protect our databases with various physical, technical and procedural measures and we restrict access to your information by unauthorized persons. We also advise all Company employees about their responsibility to protect customer data and we provide them with appropriate guidelines for adhering to our company’s business ethics standards and confidentiality policies.
8. Does the Company protect children’s privacy?
The Site is intended for use by individuals 18 years of age and older. We will not knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that an individual is under the age of 13, and has submitted any information to the Company for any purpose without prior verifiable parental consent, we will delete his or her information from our files.
