We collect several types of information from and about users on the Site, some of which allows us to personally identify our users, including:
We collect information from you directly when you provide it to us through the Site. Additionally, we collect generic information about your usage and equipment automatically as you navigate through the Site, but do not correlate tracking information to individuals.
We use the information that you provide and/or we collect about you for a number of reasons related to the services and products we provide on the Site. First, we analyze visitor information in the aggregate - that is, we collect information about thousands of Site visits and analyze it as a whole. This kind of study involves looking for trends among many visitors to our Site, rather than analyzing information about any individual visitor. Examples include researching which parts of the Site are accessed most frequently or determining which products are most attractive to our users. We may also use aggregated, statistical information to describe our Site traffic and establish advertising and other business relationships with third parties. We do not provide any of your personal information to any third party advertisers.
Third, we may use information you provide to help us customize our communications with you and improve our services and products, which may include working with third parties to build, manage, and analyze these communication and preference systems.
Third party Internet sites available through links on our Site have separate privacy and data collection practices. We have no responsibility or liability for these third party policies, content, or actions, even if you access these third-party sites through a link on the Site. Please refer to the privacy statement of any applicable third party site when providing personally identifiable information.
The Site collects browsing data and sets first-party session cookies in order for the Site to function. In addition, third-party tracking cookies may be stored on the user’s browser and we do not control how these cookies react to Do Not Track settings. If you have a Do Not Track setting in place on your browser, the Site will honor these settings but some services and functionalities on the Site may be more limited.
We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
We may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide:
We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
We do not control third parties' collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") on the NAI's website.
We work diligently to protect the security of your personal information, including credit card information and login information, by using encrypted connections (SSH/HTTPS) during transmission and secure FTP connections for accessing Site files. The Site is hosted on Magento Cloud and directory indexing helps to hide the obvious pathways via which the files of the Site are stored. Additionally, Magento has strengthened the hashing algorithms (SHA-256) used in password management, and you always have the option to update your account password through the Site. Magento is GDPR-compliant and it is bound to abide by these requirements in its agreement with us here. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your customer account by ensuring that you logoff when you have finished visiting our Site.
You can review and change your personal information by logging into the Site and visiting your account. You may also send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of the Site that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to email@example.com.
If you are accessing the Site from outside of the United States, you cannot place an order from the Site. Orders from outside of the United States may be placed through Amazon.com.
Additionally, by using the Site, you authorize us to transfer and store your information outside your home country, including in the United States, for the purposes described in this policy. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your information in these countries may not be the same as in your home country.
You have options in relation to the information and data that we have about you. To exercise any of the options discussed below, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re an EEA user, you may:
We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person. If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).
Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important to us. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our Site from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Site is intended for use by those under 13.
If you are based in the EAA you may only use the Site if you are over the age at which you can provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country.
