Welcome. The information below explains how Shophity, LLC ("Shophity") collects, uses, and discloses information on our website, located at www.shophity.com (the "Website"). By ensuring that you are aware of and understand our Privacy Notice, we can provide you with better service. Please take a moment to read the following policy to learn how we handle your personal information.
Shophity ("we" or "us" or "our") understands that individuals with whom we conduct business value their privacy. We are committed to taking reasonable steps towards protecting your privacy online and managing your information responsibly. This Privacy Notice is intended to notify you of our online privacy practices, the types of information that may be collected and stored, how the information is used, with whom the information may be shared, what choices are available to you regarding the collection, use and distribution of the information, how we may contact you, what kind of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control, and who to contact with questions or concerns.
This Privacy Notice applies to the Website, to any phone, fax, email and/or postal mail operations concerning processing of orders and questions about products or services, as well as our marketing contacts with you. This Privacy Notice does not apply to other websites to which we may link, or to other companies or persons who might be listed as third-party contacts on this Website. By using the Website and/or by contacting us and providing any personal information, you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, disclosure and use of information by us in accordance with this Privacy Notice. If we decide to change our Privacy Notice, we will post those changes on this page.
Why We Collect Information:
We collect personal information because it helps us deliver our products and services, design and deliver our Website, and to deliver targeted marketing to you. In addition, your personal information helps us communicate to you our latest products, special offers, and information and events about which you might like to hear. We also may correlate your personal information obtained from you with information from other sources. For example, if you provide us with your personal information, we may cross-check that against information that might be otherwise available through other entities such as when you, or a business with which you are affiliated, seeks to open an account with us, or in order to prevent or detect fraud.
How We Collect Information:
We collect information in three primary ways:
What Information We Collect:
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
When you order products or services via the Website, we will collect the information necessary to complete your order, such as your name, e-mail address, credit card information, transaction details, shipping address, general information about your purchases and payment methods, and physical or billing address. Depending on which services you choose to use, Shophity may also require additional information. You may also provide us with other information that you might submit. You may be given the option to save certain information on our website in order to make future shopping experiences faster and more convenient.
We do not automatically collect information unless you voluntarily input or submit this information, such as during a registration or ordering process, when you submit questions or comments, request information, seek to open an account or participate in online surveys, contests, promotions or other activities.
Even if you do not submit personal information through the Website, we gather navigational information about where visitors go on the Website and information about the technical efficiencies of our Website and services (i.e., time to connect to the Website, time to download pages, etc.). This information allows us to see which areas of our Website are most visited and helps us better understand the user experience. This information also helps us improve the quality of the Website by recognizing and delivering more of the features, areas, and services our visitors prefer. In this process of gathering information, we may collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information, including but not limited to domain type, browser type and version, service provider and IP address, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click-stream data. We may also create and use electronic records to compile statistics about how our visitors collectively interact with our Website.
A web "server log" is a record of activity created by a computer that delivers certain webpages to your browser. Certain activities that you perform on our Website may record information in server logs. For example, if you enter a search term into a search box located on the Website, the server log may record the search term, the link you clicked on to bring you to our Website and/or information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser.
Search Queries on Our Website:
We may provide you with options to search for information on our site. If you enter information in a search query box, we may store that information and we may aggregate that information with other information we may have about the browser and/or IP address from which the search query originated.
From time to time, we may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, email and shipping address), demographic information (such as postal code, age level) and provide better services and options to you. If your information gathered via a survey will be used in a manner different from that described in this Privacy Notice, such use will be detailed in the survey instructions. For example, the instructions will alert you if the information will be shared with anyone in addition to those identified in this Privacy Notice, such as a third party sponsoring the survey.
How We Use the Information We Collect:
First and foremost, we do not sell data we collect in any individualized form - period. We only use the information we collect to improve our Website and the user experience and facilitate the transactions you may enter into via the Website.
We use the information we collect in a variety of ways. Generally, using all of the above mentioned, and similar type tools, we may collect, aggregate, and use information from or about you such as data about the type of browser and operating system used, your geographical location, which webpages you view, the time and duration or your visits to our site, the search queries you may use on this Website and any other submissions you may make, whether you clicked on any items or links on the site, whether you have clicked on any links in any emails sent from us, or third-parties on our behalf, whether you have chosen to opt-out of certain services or information sharing, and whether you have viewed or ordered certain products or services.
We use the information we collect internally in our business for many business purposes, such as to: (i) provide the Website and facilitate transactions between users; (ii) analyze trends and conduct research about improving the Website; (iii) provide support and respond to questions from users and Website visitors; (iv) improve our Website, products or services; (v) learn about users' needs; (vi) contact users for research, informational, and marketing purposes, including customizing our Website for you based upon your information and browsing habits and customizing our product recommendations to you based on your information and purchases; (vii) track traffic patterns and Website usage; (viii) provide customer service and technical support with respect to the Website; (ix) correlate information with other commercially available information to identify demographics and preferences to assist us in our marketing efforts; (x) provide specific relevant marketing, promotional, or other information to you; (xi) address information security and/or privacy practices, network functioning, engineering, and troubleshooting issues; (xii) investigate claims and/or legal actions, violations of law or agreements, and compliance with relevant applicable laws and legal process; (xiii) comply with law, or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with the law, or otherwise to disclose information to prevent fraud to reduce credit risks, to cooperate with police and other governmental authorities, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to the Website or the public; and (xiv) process or engage in a sale of all or part of our business, or if we go through a reorganization or merger.
We may also share personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information externally with our affiliates and business partners, as well as with other third-party service providers who help us provide operational services for the Website and our business, which might include, but is not necessarily limited to: business entities that provide e-mail address management and communication contact services, credit and debit card payment gateways and processors and the issuing and acquiring banks involved in the funds settlement procedures necessary to charge your cards or financial accounts, network equipment and application management providers and hosting entities, credit and debit card payment gateways and processors and the issuing and acquiring banks involved in the funds settlement procedures necessary to charge your cards or financial accounts, entities which obtain information such as demographic information which might be aggregated with information we have about you, judicial, administrative and/or legal or financial accounting providers in the event that information must be reviewed or released in response to civil and/or criminal investigations, claims, lawsuits, or if we are subject to judicial or administrative process (such as a subpoena) to release your information or to prosecute or defend legal actions, and other service providers which may be involved in the other types of services and activities otherwise discussed in this Privacy Notice.
We may also use your personally identifiable information to contact you in ways other than e-mail or regular mail, such as via telephone contact or facsimile.
If Shophity or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Shophity goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Shophity may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Notice in connection with the continued operation of Shophity by the acquirer.
