Throughout the policy, “Personal Information” means information that can be associated with a specific person and could be used to identify that person. We do not consider Personal Information to include information that has been made anonymous or combined so that it can no longer be used, whether in combination with other information or otherwise, to identify a specific person.
We may update this policy from time to time. If we believe that the changes are material, we’ll definitely let you know by doing one (or more) of the following: (1) posting the changes on the Googooroo Site or (2) sending you an email or message about the changes. That way you can decide whether you want to continue using the Googooroo Site. Changes will be effective upon the posting of the changes. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes. Your use of the Googooroo Site following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated policy.
1. INFORMATION COLLECTION
Googooroo collects Personal Information from you on this website in several different ways. One reason for collecting Personal Information from you is to provide an efficient and meaningful experience, tailored to your needs.
Registering for an account or purchasing products on the Googooroo Site: Before using certain parts of the Googooroo Site or ordering products, you must complete an online registration form. During registration, you will be prompted to provide us with certain Personal Information, including but not limited to your name, shipping and billing address, phone number, email address, and credit card number. In addition, we may also ask you for your country of residence and/or your organization’s country of operation, so we can comply with applicable laws and regulations. These MARKET kinds of Personal Information are used for billing purposes, to fill and complete your orders, to communicate with you about your order and for internal marketing purposes. If we encounter a problem when processing your order, your Personal Information may be used to contact you.
Log Files: As is true of most web sites, the Googooroo Site server automatically recognizes the Internet URL from which you access the Googooroo Site. We may also log your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, Internet service provider, and date/time stamp for system administration, order verification, internal marketing, and system troubleshooting purposes. (An IP address may indicate the location of your computer on the Internet.)
2. INFORMATION USE AND DISCLOSURE
(a) Internal Use
We use your Personal Information to process your order and to provide you with customer service. We may use your Personal Information internally to improve the Googooroo Site’s content and layout, to improve outreach and for our own marketing efforts (including marketing our services and products to you), and to determine general marketplace information about visitors to the Googooroo Site.
(b) Communications with You
We will use your Personal Information to communicate with you about the Googooroo Site and your orders and deliveries. Also, we may send a confirmation email to you when you register with us. We may send you a service-related announcement on the rare occasions when it is necessary (for example, if we must temporarily suspend our service for maintenance.) Also, you may submit your email address to ask us to notify you of new product styles and/or product sizes, and/or to sign up for email newsletters or special offers. If you submit your email address, we use it to deliver the information to you. We always permit you to unsubscribe or opt out of future emails (see the opt out section, below, for more details). Because we have to communicate with you about orders that you choose to place, you cannot opt out of receiving emails related to your orders.
(c) External Use
We want to provide you with excellent service and to offer you a great selection. We do not sell, rent, trade, license or otherwise disclose your specific Personal Information or financial information to anyone other than to affiliates or vendor partners.
(i) As do most catalog and Internet retailers, we sometimes use others to perform specific functions on our behalf. When we disclose information to these service providers, we disclose information to help them to perform their service. For example, in order to deliver products to you, we must share some information. We partner with third parties (such as the U.S. Postal Service, United Parcel Service, and Federal Express) to ship products, to ensure delivery, and so that we can obtain feedback, improve the quality of our service, and measure and improve the quality of the service of the third party. In the example of shippers, we provide them with certain personally identifiable information such as your name, shipping address, email, and phone number.
(ii) Similarly, to help you buy products and to provide customer service to you, we must provide your credit card number to financial-services corporations such as credit-card processors and issuers. When we submit your credit card number for authorization, we use state-of-the-art data encryption to protect your information. (More on this below in Data Security.)
(v) We may share non-Personal Information (such as the number of daily visitors to a particular web page, or the size of an order placed on a certain date) with third parties such as advertising partners. This information does not directly personally identify you or any user.
Googooroo uses “cookies” in conjunction with the Googooroo Site to obtain information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your device (e.g. your phone or your computer) for record-keeping purposes. For example, a cookie could allow the Googooroo Site to recognize your browser, while another could store your preferences and other information.
Web beacons assist in delivering cookies and help us to determine whether a web page on the Googooroo Site has been viewed and, if so, how many times. For example, any electronic image on the Googooroo Site, such as an ad banner, can function as a web beacon.
We may use third-party advertising companies to help tailor site content to users or to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness (such as which web pages are visited or what products are purchased and in what amount). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is not linked to any Personal Information collected by us.
4. DATA RETENTION
You may inform us of any changes or requests regarding your personal data, and in accordance with our obligations under applicable data protection law, we may update or delete your personal data accordingly. We’ll respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
5. DATA SECURITY
The Googooroo Site incorporates a Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) for all financial transactions through the Googooroo Site. We use SSL encryption to protect your Personal Information online, and we also take several steps to protect your Personal Information in our facilities. Access to your Personal Information is restricted. Only employees who need access to your Personal Information to perform a specific job are granted access to your Personal Information. We also rely on third-party service providers for the physical security of some of our computer hardware. We believe that their security procedures are adequate. For example, when you visit the Googooroo Site, you access servers that are kept in a secure physical environment, behind a locked cage and an electronic firewall.
Despite best efforts, no method of transmission over the Internet and no method of electronic storage is perfectly secure. We cannot guarantee absolute security. However, if Googooroo learns of a security breach, we will notify affected users so that they can take appropriate protective steps. Our breach notification procedures are consistent with our obligations under various state and federal laws and regulations, as well as any industry rules or standards that we adhere to. Notification procedures include providing email notices or posting a notice on our website if a breach occurs.
6. OPT OUT/CORRECTIONS
Upon your request, we will (a) correct or update your Personal Information; (b) stop sending emails to your email address; and/or (c) disable your account to prevent any future purchases through that account. As noted above in Section 2.b., you cannot opt out of receiving emails related to your orders because we have to communicate with you about orders that you choose to place.
7. INTERNATIONAL USERS
The Services are operated, controlled and administered by Googooroo from our offices within the USA. If you access the Services from a location outside the USA, you are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable local and international laws and regulations, including without limitation, those applicable to the international sale, purchase, and shipment of items. By using the Services and providing your Personal Information to Googooroo, you also consent to the collection, transfer, storage and processing of your Personal Information outside of your jurisdiction of residence.
8. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHT
Pursuant to Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code, residents of California have the right to request from a business, with whom the California resident has an established business relationship, certain information with respect to the types of Personal Information the business shares with third parties for direct marketing purposes by such third party and the identities of the third parties with whom the business has shared such information during the immediately preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of Personal Information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Googooroo Site is not intended or directed to anyone under the age of 18. Googooroo does not sell or ship any items ordered through our websites directly to anyone who we know to be under the age of 18, nor do we collect any Personal Information from anyone who we know to be under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, you should use our websites only with the involvement of a parent or guardian and should not submit any Personal Information to us.
