2. Types of Information Collected
A. Information Collected From You
We may collect and store Personal Information from you should you decide to register to our mailing list and make a purchase with Grumpy Bert. Collecting this information is a necessary part for performing some of our services and may help make future experiences in using our services more fluid and personal.
You have the option of not providing us with certain information, but you must understand that, in not doing so, some services such as notification of order status, sales promotions, and recognition of your personal preferences may not be available to you.
B. Information Collected Automatically
In addition, Grumpy Bert collects information regarding access and usage of our website and services. Grumpy Bert uses this information for statistical purposes only, to assist us in determining how and when users like yourself utilize our services. Again, the purpose of collecting this information is to improve our ability to deliver our services. With this goal in mind, we may provide some of these statistics to others about how users utilize our website and services collectively. This does not include any information that can be used to identify you or other users individually.
C. Employees, Agents, Affilliates, and Successors
When accessing our website, you may come in contact with other companies we affiliate with in providing our services. For example, we may affiliate with companies that specialize in conducting Internet financial transactions or shipping. It may be necessary for us to provide a limited amount of your information to our affiliates and their agents only to the extent necessary to perform our services.
If Grumpy Bert becomes involved in a merger or an acquisition of some or all of its assets, any successor of Grumpy Bert may need access to information from you, in the same manner as Grumpy Bert does, in order to continue providing you with services. If your Personal Information is transferred as part of this process, we will attempt to contact you beforehand through any contact information you have provided us.
3. Grumpy Bert E-mail Communications
You may occasionally receive e-mail from Grumpy Bert. If you open an e-mail sent by Grumpy Bert, we may get a confirmation. This allows us to make future communications more useful to you, including limiting e-mail to only those messages you are interested in receiving. If you want to limit the type of e-mail or other communications from us, please contact us at email@example.com.
4. Security Measures
Grumpy Bert takes care in protecting information we acquire from users by using databases protected by password security technology. We also employ Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect information transfers and communications with you. In addition, our network is secured via an active firewall. This technology helps to prevent unauthorized people from accessing the information we collect and the communications we send. We take security of information and maintenance of privacy very seriously, but we cannot say or warrant with certainty that the information transmitted over the Internet will be secure. For that reason, we encourage all users to take their own steps in protecting the privacy of their information.
Grumpy Bert works with outside e-commerce companies to secure our Internet financial transactions such as billing and payment. Those companies utilize secure pages encrypted by the SSL protocol. As mentioned above, these companies will only receive as much information as is necessary to process the financial transaction.
5. User Access to Information
You may request to view certain Personal Information we have collected from you for purposes such as verifying accuracy, updating our records, and requesting removal of information that we are not legally obligated to maintain or is not required as part of delivering our services to you. We reserve the right to decline your request if it requires us to do something that is illegal or impracticable, or if it hinders in delivering our services. For example, unreasonably repetitive requests or requests that require a substantial effort from our employees or servers may not be accommodated.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your privacy when using our services, please send us a detailed message to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the address below and a representative will be in touch with you shortly.
