PRIVACY & RESPONSIBILITY
Thank you for visiting Kurvet.com (the “site”). Respecting and protecting the privacy of our customers (including users of the site) is of great importance to us at Kurvet. This notice describes our policies of information collection and our use practices, and highlights choices you may have about the way we use and share such information. Please read this policy so that you can understand how we use your personal information.
COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
On the site, you may be able to purchase merchandise, participate in our community features like chat rooms or bulletin boards, become a registered user, maintain a wish list or store other information on the site, enter sweepstakes and contests, participate in surveys and polls, e-mail or instant message, subscribe to a service, or enroll to receive certain entertainment or information. We may need or request certain types of personally identifiable information (i.e., information that can directly identify you or indicate where you may be contacted, such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, or credit card information) and collect it in connection with these various activities and offerings. We may also collect age, date of birth, sex, and grade level. We do not consider demographic information about you; indications of your interests, likes, and dislikes; or general characteristics such as clothing size or hair color to be personally identifiable information unless it is somehow grouped with other information so as to permit identification of you specifically.
Sometimes you can submit information about other people. For example, you might submit a person’s name and e-mail address to send an electronic greeting card or, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to a friend, you might submit the friend’s name and address, should we be offering that service. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected about other people at these pages may include: the recipient’s name, address, age, date of birth, grade level, e-mail address, sex, or telephone number.
USE OF AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We use personally identifiable information for various purposes. For example, we may use information you provide to process your purchases of merchandise or to provide for merchandise delivery to your home. As a registered user, you provide us with information that we maintain and reference as part of our attempts to provide better and more personalized service to you. We may also use online registries or other databases to permit you to use and participate in certain portions or features of our site. We also use information that users provide to conduct sweepstakes and contests, notify you if you win, and fulfill prizes or awards. In addition, unless you tell us not to, we like to provide you with certain information about our merchandise, sales or other offerings, and other marketing materials designed to help you use our site. We also use such information to make our online marketing and other communications with you more efficient. Similarly, we may use personally identifiable information in connection with certain activities with our partners, such as marketing efforts, co-sponsorships, and other initiatives. We also collect this information as may be reasonably necessary for tracking/verifying compliance with federal, state, and local laws or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes.
If you use the site from outside the United States, your connection will be through and to servers located in the United States, your orders placed through the site will be fully processed in and shipped from the United States, and all information you provide will be processed and maintained in our Web servers and internal systems located within the United States. By using the site, you authorize the export of personal information to the United States and its storage and use as specified above when you provide such information to us. This policy and our legal obligations are subject to the laws of the State of California and the United States, regardless of the location of any user.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES AND PUBLIC AREAS
Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online — for example, via message boards — that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While we strive to protect personal information provided to us and our users privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit online and you do so at your own risk.
Our policy does not extend to anything inherent in the operation of the Internet, and such inherent traits are therefore beyond our control.
