INFORMATION THAT IS COLLECTED AND STORED
Personally Identifiable Information: Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) is information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you personally (such as your name, address, phone number or email address). For example, when you place an order with us, your account information is stored on this Website’s server and/or affiliated servers. We may also ask you to provide us with certain PII in connection with the use of this Website, with the services provided by our Customer Service Department or with a promotion. This information is used to provide the products and services that you have ordered, for example, to process and ship orders, to send order and shipping confirmations and to provide customer service. This information also may be used to contact you about sales, special offers and new Website features, unless you have opted not to receive promotional communications in connection with this Website.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: When you visit this Website, our web servers automatically collect Website usage information. Website usage information is non-identifying information that describes how our visitors use and navigate our Website. It can include the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their stays, browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting our Website, and IP addresses (see below for more information on IP addresses). We also may determine the applicable technology available in order to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page, e-mail or similar service. This information is used to analyze and improve this Website and to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience.
Use Of IP Addresses: An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer or network when you are linked to the Internet. When you request pages from this Website, our servers log your IP address. We may use your IP address for a number of purposes, such as system administration, to report aggregate information to our business partners or to audit the use of the Website. We may associate your IP address with the PII you provide.
WE DO NOT COLLECT INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN
We do not knowingly sell or ship any items ordered through this Website directly to anyone who we know to be under the age of 13, nor do we collect any PII from anyone who we know to be under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 18, you should use this Website only with the involvement of a parent or guardian and should not submit any PII to us. If we discover that a person under the age of 13 has provided BALDE with PII, BALDE will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such person’s PII from its system.
BALDE USE AND DISCLOSURE OF COLLECTED INFORMATION
With Whom Does BALDE Share Information?
BALDE may share your PII with third parties under the following circumstances:
Third parties providing services on our behalf: We may engage third parties to perform services in connection with the operation of our business. Examples of these services include: (a) payment processing and authorization, (b) fraud protection and credit risk reduction, (c) product customization, (d) order fulfillment, (e) shipping, (f) marketing and promotional material distribution, (g) Website evaluation, (h) data collection, storage, management, analysis and, where applicable, cleansing, and (i) any other services designed to assist us in maximizing our business potential. These third parties may have access to this Website’s user information, including PII, to the extent it is needed to perform their duties and functions.
BALDE Security: We may release information about our users, including PII, when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, or to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Website and applicable laws. We may also disclose such user information whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of BALDE or any of our respective affiliates, business partners, customers or others.
Corporate change: In addition, we reserve the right to disclose, share and/or otherwise transfer user information, including without limitation PII, in connection with a corporate merger, acquisition, consolidation, the sale of a portion of our business or the sale of substantially all of BALDE assets, or other fundamental corporate change, whatever form it may take. You will be notified via e-mail or prominent notice on our Website prior to a change of ownership or control of your personal information, if your personal information will be used contrary to this policy.
SECURITY FOR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use various security measures, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, to protect personal information that we collect. Unfortunately, while we work hard to ensure the security of your PII while it is on our systems, no security measures are perfect and data transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We cannot and do not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to BALDE and you do so at your own risk.
ACCESSING, CORRECTING AND UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION
You can access, correct and update certain personal information that you have provided to us by contacting Customer Service at email@example.com
You can unsubscribe from receiving promotional material from this Website by clicking on an “unsubscribe” hyperlink contained in promotional emails we send you. Additionally you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Because customer lists often are prepared well in advance of an offering (sometimes a few months before the offer is made), you may continue to receive some offers after you send us a request not to use your information for specified marketing purposes. Please be aware that we will process your request as quickly as we reasonably can, but it may not be possible to update our systems immediately. We appreciate your patience and understanding in giving us time to carry out your request.
Even if you are removed from any such list, if you order online, we will send you an email confirming your order and may need to contact you by phone, email, or regular mail if we have questions about your order. In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons.
If you do not exercise your opt-out choices upon registration or otherwise at the time the PII is provided, it may take some time to process your opt-out choices. Our systems require time to update, and promotional mailings using PII shared before your opt-out may already be in process.
