We greatly appreciate the trust you’ve placed in us. Our commitment to secure transactions and the privacy of customer information is unwavering. Please take a moment to review the following statement, which outlines our practices for gathering and sharing information.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information and Other Data
As you engage with our Website, we gather and securely store the personal information you provide us over time. Our main objective in doing so is to ensure a secure, efficient, and personalized experience. This enables us to offer services and features that cater to your needs, while also enhancing the safety and ease of your interaction with our Website. More importantly, this information helps us achieve these goals effectively.
While browsing the Website, you have the option to remain anonymous and withhold personal information. However, once you provide your personal details, you are no longer anonymous to us. We strive to indicate which fields require mandatory information and which are optional. Opting not to use specific services or features will give you the choice of not providing certain information. Moreover, certain details about your behavior on our Website are automatically tracked for internal research purposes, helping us understand user demographics, interests, and behaviors. This data is aggregated and analyzed to improve our services. Information tracked includes the URL you visited prior to ours, the subsequent URL you navigate to, your browser information, and your IP address.
To enhance web page analysis, assess promotional effectiveness, and build trust, we utilize data collection tools such as “cookies” on specific pages of our Website. These cookies are small files placed on your device, assisting us in delivering our services. Some features are accessible solely through cookies, which can also reduce the frequency of password input during a session. Cookies assist in targeting information based on your interests. Most cookies are “session cookies” that automatically expire at the end of a session. You can decline our cookies through your browser settings, although this might limit certain Website features, potentially necessitating more frequent password input.
Furthermore, you may encounter third-party “cookies” or similar tools on specific pages of the Website. It’s important to note that we don’t govern third-party cookie usage.
When making purchases on the Website, we collect data regarding your buying behavior.
If you engage in transactions with us, additional information such as billing addresses, credit/debit card details, and tracking information may be collected.
When posting messages on message boards, chat rooms, or leaving feedback, the provided information is stored for dispute resolution, customer support, and troubleshooting, as permitted by law.
In the case of personal correspondence like emails or letters, or if other users/third parties provide information about your activities on the Website, we store this data in a dedicated file.
While several sections of our Website can be accessed without registration, setting up a free account requires personally identifiable information (email address, name, phone number, credit/debit card details). Although registration is necessary for certain activities like placing orders, your contact information might also be used to send offers based on past orders and interests.
Utilization of Demographic/Profile Data and Your Information
Personal information is used to fulfill requested services. If we use your personal data for marketing purposes, you’ll have the option to opt out. This data aids in dispute resolution, troubleshooting, safety enforcement, and more. It helps us detect errors, fraud, and criminal activity, enforce our terms, and personalize your experience. Consent permits us to access your SMS, directory contacts, location, and device information. This data may be shared with our affiliates. Withdrawal of consent will halt data collection for this purpose, though data may still be stored for internal improvements.
To continually refine our offerings, we collect and analyze demographic and profile data related to user activity on our Website.
Your IP address assists in diagnosing server issues and administering the Website. It also helps in identifying you and gathering broad demographic data.
Occasionally, you might be asked to complete optional online surveys, providing contact and demographic details. This data is used to tailor your Website experience and display content based on preferences.
Sharing of Personal Information
Personal data may be shared with our corporate entities and affiliates. Unless you opt out, these entities may market to you based on shared information.
Disclosure of personal information to third parties may be necessary to provide access to services, adhere to legal obligations, enforce user agreements, facilitate marketing, or prevent fraud. Personal data isn’t shared for third-party marketing without explicit consent.
Disclosure may also occur in response to legal requirements or in good faith belief that it’s necessary to respond to legal processes, enforce terms, protect rights, property, or personal safety.
Our Website employs robust security measures to safeguard information against loss, misuse, and alteration. Account information changes and access are conducted via a secure server. Stringent security guidelines are followed once we possess your information to prevent unauthorized access.
