ETHICAL BRANDZ PRIVACY AND COOKIES POLICY

Your privacy is important to us, and we are committed to protecting your personal information. In this policy, we let you know about the ways we collect and use your information, so you can make an informed choice regarding whether you will visit our website and use our services. By using our website, you consent to the terms of this policy.

 

What information do we collect?

If all you do is just look at our site, we don’t collect any information from you. We collect your name and email address if you subscribe to our email newsletter. When you order a product through our site, we collect your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number. Your payment card information and/or bank account information is held by our payment processor, PayPal, and we do not have access to that information.

 

How do we use your information?

We use your name and email address to send you periodic emails, including email newsletters and occasional business announcements and updates. If you buy a product, we pass your name, mailing address, email address and phone number to the seller so they can process your order, ship you the product, email you updates about your order, and contact you if they have any questions.

We use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart, and to compile aggregated, anonymized data about site traffic and site interaction, so we can optimize our website and create a better user experience for you.

 

How can you unsubscribe?

If at any time you want to unsubscribe from receiving our future marketing emails, we include one-step unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each of our emails. (If you want to unsubscribe from emails from a seller, you’ll need to contact the seller directly.)

 

What are cookies?

A cookie is a text file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by our server to your web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to our server each time you access a page from the server or use functionality on our site such as the shopping cart.

 

How can you delete cookies?

Most browsers allow you to accept or refuse cookies, and delete any that are already in your browser. You should be able to find instructions under your browser’s Help menu.

But bear in mind that most websites (including ours) need cookies to work properly. So if you delete and block our cookies, parts of our website will not function correctly and you will not be able to buy anything from any of our sellers.

 

How do we protect your information?

We use various security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. For example, we store all your information in a password-protected, encrypted format on servers with tightly restricted access rights.

We use PayPal as our payment processor, and they store your financial information (e.g. your payment card information and bank account information) as per their agreement with you. As we said above, we do not have access to your financial information on PayPal.

We will never trade, share, give, or sell your information to any other company, except that we do share your information with certain third parties who assist us in taking care of your account (e.g. our email hosting service). All of these third parties agree to keep your information confidential.

We don’t expect this will be necessary, but we will also release your information as required by law, if it’s necessary to protect our legal rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or warrant.

 

Other Legal Information

We do not collect any information from anyone under 10 years of age. This website, our services and the goods available for purchase are not directed to people who are under 10 years of age.

If we decide to change this policy, we will post the changes on this page. You should check this page regularly to stay up-to-date because you will be deemed to consent to those changes by continuing to use our website after the changes are published. The last time this policy was updated was on the 26th of October 2017.
