Collecting Information About You
There may be times (such as when you purchase or order a product, subscribe to a service, register to receive catalogues, or to participate in contests, sweepstakes or promotions, etc.) when we ask you to provide certain contact information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, email address, credit card information, birth date, gender, occupation, personal interests, and other information. We may also maintain a record of your product purchases.
Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers and content on our web sites. In addition, we may need to contact you via phone, email or mail to address questions or issues specific to your order, entry, etc., even if you have opted to not receive marketing communications from us.
In general, you can visit many of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any contact information about yourself. You may also be able to deal with us in other ways without identifying yourself (ie anonymously or by using a pseudonym) if this is practicable. If you wish to do so, please contact us to find out if this is practicable in your circumstances. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us and analyse this data for preferences, trends, and site usage statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
Using Information About You
We use your contact information for internal purposes only, such as:
- confirming and tracking your order, subscription, or registration;
- analysing preferences, trends, and statistics;
- informing you of our new products, services, and offers if you have consented to receiving and providing you with other information from and about us
We process your contact information only in ways compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or authorised by you. To the extent necessary for such purposes, we take reasonable steps to make sure that your contact information is accurate, complete, current, and otherwise reliable with regard to its intended use.
Opting Out Of Marketing And Transfers; Updating, Deleting and Accessing Information About You
We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us and will only send marketing communications to you if you have first consented to receiving such or have previously purchased from us. If you prefer not to receive direct marketing from us or if you would like to opt out please let us know. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow the unsubscribe function in our marketing communications. Please be sure to include your full name, email address, mailing address, and specifically what information you do not want to receive. If you would like to update or correct your email address, mailing address or other information (including other contact information) with us please contact us the same way.
We maintain reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of information transmitted to us. To guard your information delivered to us electronically, our web sites use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL encrypts your credit card number, name and address so only we are able to decode your information. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your contact information, to the extent permitted by law:
- we do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our websites; and
- you do so at your own risk.
We urge you to keep any password that you establish with us in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also remember to log off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.Links to Third Party Web Sites
