2. Cookies 

Do we use 'cookies'?
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We use cookies to:

  • help remember and process the itmes in the shopping cart;
  • understand and save user's preferences for future visits;
  • keep track of advertisements.
  • compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third party services that track this information on our behalf.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

Please note that if you disable cookies, some features of our Service will be disabled. Consequently, this may affect the site’s efficiency and your overall experience since some of our services will not function properly.

3. Third Parties

Third Party Disclosure

We DO NOT sell or trade to outside parties your name, address, city, town, any form or online contact identifier, email, name of chat account etc., phone number, cookie number, IP address, device serial #, unique device identifier, or personally identifiable information. However, we use third parties to provide support for some of the services we provide, such as reservations or online purchases or transactions. In those instances, these trusted parties must be able to access the minimum PII in order to perform a financial transaction. We may also use third parties to assist us in tracking site traffic and site interaction.

Third party links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Google
Google's advertising requirements can be summed up by Google's Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en We have not enabled Google AdSense on our site but we may do so in the future.

4. Data Retention and Account Termination  

If you prefer to close your account, you can click here. Although we will take down your public posts, we may retain your information for the purposes covered within this Privacy Policy unless prohibited by law. The information is retained to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service or to comply with legal obligations. However, businesses cannot remove their business listings, ratings, or reviews by closing their accounts.

5. Children  

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13. However, 14 to 18 year-olds may use our Service only with the approval of their parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by our Terms and Conditions. Click here to link to our Terms.

6. Security

How do we protect visitor information?

Our website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible.

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. In addition, all transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.

We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order, enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the security of your personal information. However, please be aware that transmissions over the internet or mobile devices, or any electronic storage, are not 100% secure. It stands to reason then that even though we can mitigate risks to a maximum extent, we cannot guarantee absolute security.

7. California Residents – Your California Privacy Rights

California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf According to CalOPPA we agree to the following: Users can visit our site anonymously. Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website. Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes:

  •  on our Privacy Policy Page. Users are able to change their personal information:
  • by emailing us;
  • by logging in to their account.

8. Fair Information Practices

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information. In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur: 

  • we will notify the users via email within 7 business days.

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

9. Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing (CAN SPAM) Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:

  • send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions;
  • process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders;
  • we may also send you additional information related to your product and/or service;
  • market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.

To be accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:

  • NOT use false or misleading subjects or email addresses
  • identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way;
  • include the physical address of our business or site headquarters;
  • monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used;
  • honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly;
  • allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can

  • follow the instructions at the bottom of each email.

10. Modifications to this Privacy Policy

Periodically, we may revise this Policy. If that occurs, we will send notification by email or post a change notification on our website prior to implementation. In all cases, the existing Policy remains in effect until the revision supersedes it.
