WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION; CONSENT AND DISCLOSURE
When you purchase something from us, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. When you browse our web site, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system. By doing so and/or by purchasing products from us (e.g., providing personal information to place an order, verify your credit card, arrange for delivery or otherwise complete a transaction), we imply that you consent to our collecting your personal information.
We generally do not share any of this information with third parties. We may, however, disclose your personal information if we have received your permission beforehand to do so, or in special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below, or if you violate our Terms and Conditions of Use.
Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about us, our web-site, new and existing products and other updates. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to decline providing such consent. If you have elected to disclose personal information collected by us, and change your mind, you can “opt-out” by contacting us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. While we may use your email address to respond to any contact from you, our company does not share the return email address with any third-party.
