COLLECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We may collect personally identifiable information about you, including, without limitation, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and order details. If you choose to correspond with us through email or social media, we may retain the content of your messages, together with your email address and our responses.
WEBSITE USE INFORMATION
USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
Generally speaking, we use personally identifiable information for the purpose for which you provided it. If you order a product, we will use your name and contact information to fulfill your needs, including billing, and delivery. If you send us an email, we may use your email address and other information you submit to provide customer service to you. We may also use your personally identifiable information or Log Data to administer our internal business activities, such as to design and arrange the Site in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve the Site to better meet the needs of our customers and prospective customers, to better understand visitors to the Site, to manage your account, and/or to provide customer service.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
NO SALE OF YOUR INFORMATION
We will not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties, including third party advertisers. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may disclose, transfer, or share your personally identifiable information with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below.
SHARING INFORMATION WITH SUCCESSORS
SHARING INFORMATION WITH AGENTS, CONSULTANTS, AND RELATED THIRD PARTIES
We, like many businesses, sometimes engage other companies to perform certain business-related functions. These companies may include marketing agencies, database service providers, backup and disaster recovery service providers, email service providers, payment processors, and others. When we engage another company to perform such functions, we may provide it with personally identifiable information, Log Data, or aggregate information about our customers, sales, website traffic patterns, and related website information, in connection with its performance of such functions. However, we do not collect or store credit card information or internet protocol addresses directly; rather, we employ a third-party payment processor and web platform provider who may collect, store, and use such information. We take measures to select service providers that are responsible and afford privacy protections to their customers, such as those that comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. However, we cannot make any representations about the practices and policies of these third-party companies.
SHARING INFORMATION THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA
We work with third parties, including social media sites like Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram, and with application developers who specialize in social commerce so you can connect to SwirlyCurly through your social networks. All of these companies operate Third Party Sites, as defined below. We provide access to our Site by third parties and business partners so we can generate interest in our products among members of your social networks and to allow you to share your interests with friends in your network. If you use features made available on our Site by a third party social media site, your personally identifiable information may be collected or shared by us or by the third party. We consider information collected or shared through any such social media features as public information because the third party social media sites made it publicly available. If you do not want us to be able to access information about you from Third Party Sites, you must instruct the Third-Party Sites not to share the information with us. We do not control how these third parties use information collected from or about you, so be sure to review the privacy policies and privacy settings on your social media sites to make sure you understand the information they are sharing. If you do not want a Third-Party Site to share information about you, you must contact that site and determine whether it gives you the opportunity to opt out of sharing such information.
We use features on third party social media sites that allow you to express opinions about products, surveys, or your interests. Those Third-Party Sites may collect or register your views (including whether you liked or purchased a product) and make those views available to us and on public portions of the Third-Party Sites. You can avoid such collection and use of your personally identifiable information by declining to buy products through Third Party Sites or to express your views on Third Party Sites. Third Party Sites may also give you the option to limit such data collection and disclosure in the privacy settings on their sites. We reserve the right not to display your personally identifiable information or content on our social media accounts or Site even if you express an opinion about our products or services or consent to our use of such information or content. We reserve the right to remove personally identifiable or other information of any person for any reason. We may also remove from our social media accounts or Site, in our sole discretion, any product offering or any photo or product description.
LEGALLY COMPELLED DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We may disclose your personally identifiable information if required to do so by law (including, without limitation, responding to a subpoena or request from law enforcement, a court, or a government agency) or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) comply with a legal obligation; (b) protect or defend our rights, interests, or property, or that of third parties; (c) prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Site; (d) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public; or (e) protect against legal liability.
YOUR CHOICES ABOUT USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
You may choose to limit the personally identifiable information you submit by merely browsing the Site without providing your name or other information. If you do so, you may not be able to use certain functionality of the Site.
We are committed to the protection of your information. When you place an order through the Site, we encode your information using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. While we have employed security technologies and procedures to assist safeguarding your personal information, no system or network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
STORAGE OF YOUR INFORMATION
ACCESSING AND CORRECTING YOUR INFORMATION
If you have registered for an account on the Site, you may request access to or correction of all of your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by contacting us at email@example.com. We will take reasonable steps to respond to requests relating to personally identifiable information within thirty (30) days, however, we may reject requests that we find to be unreasonable (i.e., require disproportionate efforts or material changes to our information systems), impractical, or abusive (i.e., repetitive requests, requests made in bad faith, requests that would compromise third party information).
We may retain your personally identifiable information as long as you continue to use the Site. You may close your account by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. However, we may retain personally identifiable information for an additional period as is permitted or required under applicable laws. Even if we delete your personally identifiable information, it may persist on backup or archival media for an additional period of time.
