We may use your Personal Information and Non-Personal Information that we collect or that you provide to measure usage of the Services, to analyze the effectiveness of our Services, to conduct research, to improve and enhance functionality of the Services, to provide support for the Services and respond to requests and inquiries, to provide you with notices, such as updates or changes that we may make to the Services, to provide you with our newsletter and to market and advertise the Services, including through promotional e-mail messages, directly or in partnership with other parties, and by displaying our advertisements on other websites that you visit or use. We may also use this information to offer you targeted advertising to personalize your experience by showing you advertisements for products and services that are more likely to appeal to you (i.e., behavioral advertising).
If you post information on public areas of the Sites or on any site through which our Services are offered and sold (i.e., comments or blog), that information is visible to and may be collected, stored and used by anyone. By posting information, you agree that you have obtained all necessary consents to make such information public and that doing so will not violate any laws. If you remove information that you have made public through or related to our Services, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of our Services or if other users have copied or saved that information. We are not responsible for the actions of any third parties with whom you share Personal Information. Likewise, if you post information to various third-party services or platforms, such as social networking services such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook via our Services, you acknowledge that your friends, followers and subscribers on these third party services or platforms will be able to view such activity. Any use of the information by such social networking websites will be governed by their privacy policies, and we do not control their use of the shared data.
INFORMATION YOU VOLUNTARILY PROVIDE
If you contact us by phone, email, text, social media, or by some other means, or if you sign up for our newsletter, we may keep a record of your contact information (including your name, company name, email, address and phone number) and the correspondence. When we send you emails, we may also track whether you open them to determine how to deliver more helpful emails and improve our Services.
Referral Service: if you wish to use our referral service (anticipated in fall 2019) to tell a friend about us, we will ask you for your friend’s name and e-mail address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Site(s), and we will not retain your friend’s information.
CONSENT TO COLLECT, USE AND DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION
When you provide us with Personal Information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery, or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only. If we ask for your Personal Information for a secondary reason, like marketing or promotional communications, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no. If, after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, clicking the “unsubscribe” link in any promotional emails, checking the relevant box located on the form on which we collect your data or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
