LINKING TO THIRD PARTY SERVICES
When you click on links on Our Website that take you to third party websites, you will be subject to the third parties’ privacy policies. While We support the protection of privacy on the Internet, We cannot be responsible for the actions of any third party websites. We encourage you to read the posted privacy policies of any and every website you visit, whether you are linking from Our Website or browsing on your own.
We strive to maintain internal controls and procedures to ensure that the Information you share with Us is handled in a safe, secure and responsible manner. We have security measures to help protect against loss, unauthorized access and alteration of the information in Our control. We will only disclose such Information to employees and authorized service providers who require such information for the purposes described in this Policy.
Our databases are protected by physical, technical, and procedural measures that restrict access only to authorized persons in accordance with this Policy. Although no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, and We cannot ensure against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or destruction of data, We take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences. Nevertheless, We cannot and do not guarantee that information you post on or transmit to the Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe, such as choosing a strong password and keeping it private, as well as logging out of your user account, and closing your web browser when finished using Our Website on a shared or unsecured device.

You have the right to access personal information We hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right (which you may do at any time), please contact Us through the contact information below. We respond to all requests We receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws. We may ask you to verify your identity in order to help Us respond efficiently to your request.

Similarly, if We have collected and processed your Personal Information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing We conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your Personal Information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about Our collection and use of your Personal Information. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority. Contact details for data protection authorities in the EEA/EU are available HERE.
We retain Personal Information where We have an ongoing legitimate business or legal need to do so. Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, We'll refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:
- Whether We have a legal or contractual need to retain the data.
- Whether the data is necessary to provide Our Services.
- Whether Users have the ability to access and delete the data within their accounts.
- Whether Users would reasonably expect that We would retain the data until they remove it or until their accounts are closed or terminated.
When you place an order through the Website, We will maintain your Order Information for Our records unless and until you ask Us to delete this information. Retaining this Order Information facilitates administration of Our 100% guarantee on Our products and provides the mechanism for processing return and exchange requests and providing replacements and refunds of ordered items.
You have the right to request that your Order Information be deleted in accordance with applicable laws. Individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in this manner will be prevented from returning or exchanging items from deleted orders and prevented from receiving refunds for or replacements of items from deleted orders. When We have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, We will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then We will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
The Website is not intended for individuals under the age of 18 without the involvement of a parent or guardian. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If We become aware that We have collected personal information from a child under the relevant age without parental consent, We take steps to delete that information.
PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION
You have several options when deciding how you can best protect your Information. One option is simply not to volunteer it. This approach would allow you to still visit Our Website and you may decline to submit information through the Website, although it may prevent you from placing orders and prevent Us from providing certain services to you. The Federal Trade Commission’s website, www.ftc.gov, also offers useful information about how to protect personally identifiable information provided to a website.
