That's why we insist upon the highest standards for secure transactions and customer information privacy. Please read the following statement to learn about our information gathering and dissemination practices.
1. COLLECTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION AND OTHER INFORMATION
When you use our website/portal, we collect and store your (customer’s) personal information which is provided by you from time to time. Our primary goal in doing so is to provide you a safe, efficient, smooth and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our website/portal to make your experience safer and easier.
More importantly, while doing so we collect personal information from you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose. In general, you can browse the Website/portal without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Once you give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us. Where possible, we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional.
You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to use a particular service or feature on the Website/portal. We may automatically track certain information about you based upon your behavior on our Website/portal. We use this information to do internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve our users. This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our Website/portal or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our Website/portal or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address.
We use data collection devices such as 'cookies' on certain pages of the Website/portal to help analyze our web page flow, measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety. 'Cookies' are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing our services. We offer certain features that are only available through the use of a 'cookie'. Cookies can also help us provide information that is targeted to your interests. Most cookies are 'session cookies,' meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session.
If you choose to avail any services on the Website/portal, we collect information about your transaction behavior. If you transact with us, we collect some additional information, such as other payment instrument details and tracking information from payment instruments. If you choose to post messages on our message boards, chat rooms or other message areas or leave feedback, we will collect that information you provide to us.
We retain this information as necessary to resolve disputes, provide customer support and troubleshoot problems as permitted by law. If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Website/portal, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.
We collect personally identifiable information (email address, name, phone number, payment instrument details, etc.) from you when you set up a free account with us. While you can browse some sections of our Website/portal without being a registered member, certain activities do require registration. We do use your contact information to send you offers based on your previous orders and your interests.
2. USE OF DEMOGRAPHIC / PROFILE DATA / YOUR INFORMATION
We use personal information to provide the services you request. To the extent we use your personal information to market to you, we will provide you the ability to opt-out of such uses. We use your personal information to resolve disputes; troubleshoot problems; help promote a safe service; collect money; measure consumer interest in our products and services, inform you about online and offline offers, products, services, and updates; customize your experience; detect and protect us against error, fraud and other criminal activity; enforce our terms and conditions; and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.
In our efforts to continually improve our product and service offerings, we collect and analyze demographic and profile data about our users' activity on our Website/portal. We identify and use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Website/portal. Your IP address is also used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information. We will occasionally ask you to complete optional online surveys. These surveys may ask you for contact information and demographic information (like zip code, age, or income level). We use this data to tailor your experience at our Website/portal, providing you with content that we think you might be interested in and to display content according to your preferences.
3. SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may share personal information with our other corporate entities and affiliates to help detect and prevent identity theft, fraud and other potentially illegal acts; correlate related or multiple accounts to prevent abuse of our services, and to facilitate joint or co-branded services that you request where such services are provided by more than one corporate entity. Those entities and affiliates may not market to you as a result of such sharing unless you explicitly opt-in.
4. SECURITY PRECAUTIONS
Our website/portal has stringent security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Whenever you change or access your account information, we offer the use of a secure server. Once your information is in our possession we adhere to strict security guidelines, protecting it against unauthorized access.
