PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT

The Services capture some information about you automatically utilizing background local storage and session storage technologies (“Cookies”). Cookies are small files or other pieces of data which are downloaded or stored on your computer or other device, that can be tied to information about your use of the Services (including certain third party services and features offered as part of our website).

Examples of information of this type are your IP address, the browser you are using, the operating system you are using, the pages on the website that you visit and details of your transaction activity, such as the amount, date and time for each transaction. When we use Cookies, we may use “session” Cookies that last until you close your browser or “persistent” Cookies that last until you or your browser delete them. You may change your browser setting to decline the use of Cookies.

The information regarding your use of this website that is generated by the cookie (including your truncated IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there. Google will use this information to analyze your use of the Services, compile reports on activity for us, and perform further services associated with website use and Internet use.

We use these items on our Website to permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).

We operate social media pages on third party networks and have social media icons on our website. When you visit or link to our social media pages, data is processed both by us and the applicable social media provider. Social media providers are unaffiliated with us, and we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of social media providers. Social media providers have their own terms of use and privacy policies, and we encourage you to review those policies whenever you visit their websites or interact with their platforms.

When you click on a link that is provided in a product review, an innovation award or available in an advertisement, data is processed both by us and the linked site. Linked sites are unaffiliated with us, and we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of the operators of such linked sites.

We also collect information that you provide to us or to our service providers voluntarily. We do not knowingly collect information from users of our Website under the age of 18 and/or their internet usage, and such persons are not authorized to use the Services.

If we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under 18, we will take steps to remove that user’s personal information from our databases. By using the Services, you represent that you are at least 18 years old. You also represent, by accessing or using the Services, that you are of legal age to enter into legal agreements, or if you are not, that you have obtained your parent’s or legal guardian’s consent to accept the terms in this Privacy Policy.

STORAGE AND PROTECTION OF YOUR DATA

We retain the personal data we collect for so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data was collected and to perform our contractual and legal obligations. Notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing, we store email addresses until the user requests to be unsubscribed or removes themselves through any self-service tools offered to the user.

We do not store payment card information; rather we utilize a third party online store platform and payment processors and store only an electronic receipt that sets forth confirming payment details, such as purchase date, the expiration date of the payment card and the payment ID, but not complete payment card information.

We take reasonable administrative, physical and technical precautions to protect your personal data and communications between us. This includes, when required or as we deem appropriate and feasible under the circumstances, encryption and written commitments from third parties that may have access to your data that they will protect the data with appropriate safeguards.

No Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free, however. We therefore cannot guarantee absolute security of your data, and we are not responsible for processes and networks that we do not control. Users assume the risk of security breaches and the consequences resulting from them. Please be careful in deciding what information you send to us via email or over the Internet.
