1. Collection of Personal Information
We collect personal information in order to establish your account, to handle billing and to understand your specific needs to serve you better. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable, such as your name, address, email address, credit card number or phone number. Also, any information about yourself that you include when filling in our “free text” box constitutes personal information.
2. How We Use Your Information
The information we collect is used to comprehensively understand your needs and interests, and permits us to deliver a more consistent and personalized experience. For example, we may use your information to:
- Assist you in completing a transaction or order;
- Communicate with you about products and services;
- Provide service and support;
- Update you on new services and benefits;
- Provide personalized promotional offers;
- Select content to be communicated to you; and
- Contact you for market research regarding our products or services.
Your information may be aggregated with other clients’ information on a purely non-identifiable basis to understand how our products are used to help make them better. Credit card information is used solely for payment processing and fraud prevention efforts. Credit card information, and other sensitive personal information required to process a credit decision, is not used for any other purposes by us, our financial services providers or affiliates, and will not be retained any longer than necessary to provide your services, unless you request that we retain your credit card information to streamline your future purchases.
3. Policy on Sharing Your Information
We will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others who are not affiliated with us. We may share personal information with companies working on our behalf and affiliated business entities for the purposes detailed above. In any such cases, however, we require that the companies or entities adhere to privacy standards and policies at least as restrictive as those which we have in place. Circumstances may arise, whether for strategic or other business reasons, in which we decide to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize businesses in various countries. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or, conversely, the receipt of such personal information from sellers. It is our established practice to seek appropriate protection for all personal information in advance of any such transaction.
We may have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to: (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or legitimate governmental request, (b) detect, prevent, or otherwise address suspected fraud, security or technical issues, (c) enforce any applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of Mr. Technique, Inc., its customers or the general public as required or permitted by law.
We take measures to protect the technical information collected by our use of Google Analytics. The data collected will only be used on a need to know basis to resolve technical issues, administer our Site and identify visitor preferences; but in this case, the data will be in non-identifiable form. We do not use any of this information to identify visitors or users.
6. Access to and Accuracy of Your Information
We strive to keep your personal information accurate and up-to-date. Towards this goal we utilize various technology, management processes and policies. We will provide you with reasonable access to your personal information so you may review and correct your information, if needed. To safeguard your privacy and security, we will verify your identity through various means, such as by requiring a password and user ID, before granting access to your data. We ask that you update your information as and when it changes so any information used to serve you remains as accurate as possible.
7. Keeping your Information Secure
We value your trust and take it seriously. To prevent unauthorized access and disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of your information, we utilize industry standard physical, technical and administrative procedures to safeguard any personal information we collect.
