Types of Information We Collect
We may collect two types of information about our users: (1) Personally Identifiable Information and (2) Aggregate Information. Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”): This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. Examples of PII may include your first and last name and email address. You may also voluntarily provide other PII, whether or not specifically requested by us, by voluntarily supplying your own details to us via e-mail or by posting publically viewable comments on the Site. You agree that we may collect any PII voluntarily supplied by you, whether or not we have requested it. You must not submit any PII relating to a third party which you do not have permission from such third party to provide to us. We do not knowingly collect any information relating to third parties which you do not have permission to provide. When you engage in certain activities on our Site, such as registering or sending us a message or written content via email, we will ask you to provide certain PII. Aggregate Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Site and what other Sites may have directed you to us. This information, which is collected in a variety of different ways, is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the WebSite's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that points to the site you just came from, which URL you go to after visiting our Site, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address.
How We Collect and Use Information
Release of Information
Updating and Correcting Information
We believe you should have the ability to access and edit the PII that you have provided to us. You may change any of your PII in your account online at any time. You may request that your account be deleted by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and email address when you contact us. We encourage you to promptly update your PII if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, some information, such as logs of technical support calls or other information may not be deleted. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without some residual information because of backups.
Your California Privacy Rights
Upon your request, California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the "Shine the Light" law, requires us to provide to you (a) a list of your personal information, if any, which we have disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year, and (b) the names and addresses of those third parties. You may make such a request once per calendar year, and we will provide the information to you free of charge. Please send any requests made pursuant to this section to us by e-mail at email@example.com. However, as defined under Section 1798.83, we do not currently share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
User Choices on Collection and Use of Information
We may, from time to time, send you e-mails and/or newsletters regarding information or services that we feel may interest you. Only Factory Direct Blinds, Inc. (or agents working on behalf of Factory Direct Blinds, Inc. and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these notifications. If you do not want to receive correspondence from us, you can "opt-out" by clicking on the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of each correspondence. You also have choices with respect to cookies, as described above. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies, some parts of our Site may not work properly in your case.
Security of Your PII
At our Site you can be assured that your PII is secure as we strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of your PII. For example: — We work hard to ensure that the data we collect is reliable, accurate, complete and current. We use PII only for the purposes for which it was collected or to comply with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements. — We limit access to PII only to specific employees, Service Partners, contractors and agents who have a reasonable need to come into contact with your information. — Additionally, we also employ a number of physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect PII. Our secure servers and our data centers are protected by encryption, and our servers reside behind firewalls and password protection. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your PII, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through the Site cannot be guaranteed.
We want to let you that we use tracking on this site to help us serve you better. This means that we use the Google Adwords system to help us see when an advertisement on Google has brought a customer to our site.
