In order to best serve you, we collect two types of information when you visit and interact with the Site. Personal Consumer Information: This type of information identifies you personally, and would enable us to contact or locate you in connection with your use of the Site (“Personal Consumer Information”). Such information may include, but is not limited to, your name, postal address, email address, telephone number and/or credit card number. Non-Personal Consumer Information: This type of information does not personally identify you. Such information may include, but is not limited to, your age, product preferences, the date and time you accessed the Site, the domain and host from which you access the Internet, your browser software and operating system and/or the specific activities you are engaged in while visiting the Site (“Non-Personal Consumer Information”).
How Your Information Is Collected?
General: We collect Personal Consumer Information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us, for example, through creation of your online customer account. Non-Personal Consumer Information may be voluntarily submitted or collected automatically through use of technology such as “cookies,” as described below. “Cookies” and Other Technologies: We use “cookies” and other technologies and files (collectively, “Cookies”), to identify how visitors use our Site. This aggregate tracking information may be used to help us improve and enhance the Site for all visitors. If you prefer not to have Cookies stored on your computer, you may modify your browser settings to reject most of them, or manually remove those placed on your computer. However, please keep in mind that by so rejecting the Cookies, you may be unable to fully access the offerings on the Site. Electronic Communication: When you communicate with us electronically, via email, or by agreeing to receive email updates from us, you consent to our use of the information you have provided, and you further consent to receive additional electronic communications from us. If you prefer not to receive such communications, please email us directly at:email@example.com.
How Your Information Is Used?
We use the information collected on the Site to better serve our Users and improve your experience while visiting the Site. This includes, but is not limited to, conducting internal studies, updating the Site and product offerings, enhancing our customer service, notifying you of upcoming promotions, and creating customized content and recommendations for you. We only use the information collected from you for internal purposes, and do not sell it to third parties.
When Your Information Is Shared?
We reasonably attempt to ensure that we never intentionally disclose any Personal Consumer Information to any third party without having first received your permission. However, there are circumstances that require disclosure of your information, including Personal Consumer Information, without permission. Examples of such circumstances are set forth below (not an exhaustive list): • to comply with any valid governmental inquiry, legal inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order;
- in response to an attempted breach of Site security or a physical or property threat to you or others;
- in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of related assets or corporate division or other fundamental corporate change;
- to assist contractors performing services for us in connection with the Site;
- to facilitate optional contests, special offers or promotions carried out by third parties (your participation in the contest, special offer or promotion constitutes your consent to such disclosure); and
- to assist payment processors, financial gateways and your credit card company to authorize credit card payments (such information may also be shared with necessary third parties solely for the purpose of carrying out the transactions).
Security of Your Information
We use reasonable standards of confidentiality and security for this Site and for the Personal Consumer Information collected from this Site. The Personal Consumer Information you provide is secured using industry standard e-commerce security technology, a secure server and a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate. We also restrict our own employees’ access to Personal Consumer Information to those with a need to know it, and such employees have an obligation to keep all Personal Consumer Information confidential. No mechanism is totally secure, and it is always possible that someone may intercept or access communications, transmissions and/or Personal Consumer Information. For this reason, we are not responsible for any loss, corruption, unauthorized access or use of the information covered by this Policy, or damages related thereto. You must also seek to protect against unauthorized access to any information that you use in connection with this Site, and you should remember to close the browser once you have completed your activities on the Site or if you have decided to step away from your computer. In the event that we determine that there has been a security breach resulting in the unauthorized disclosure of Personal Consumer Information to a third party, we will notify consumers whose Personal Consumer Information has been so disclosed by posting such notice on the Site and, if email contact is possible, then we would send an email advising of the status. You alone are responsible for the confidentiality of your personal information and password. You are responsible for all uses of your account information, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account information or password. The Site is not intended for use by those under the age of thirteen. If we become aware that a User is under the age of thirteen, we will not allow such individual to register for a customer account and will, to the extent technically possible, delete the Personal Consumer Information provided by such individual. Any parent of a child under the age of 13 may contact us to request that the Personal Consumer Information provided by the child to the Site be amended or deleted, to the extent technically possible.
