What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our blog, website, or app?
When ordering products and services or registering as a member on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, forms or credit card/payment details, and optional account information like username and password. We’ll use this information for purposes such as:
- Send you information about your account and order
- Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- Process payments and prevent fraud
- Set up your account for our store
- Comply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes
- Improve our store offerings
- Send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them
If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email, and phone number, which will populate the checkout for future orders. We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. This includes your name, email address, and billing and shipping addresses. We will also store comments or reviews if you choose to leave them.
When you register for the site, you may be asked to provide specific personal data for display on your Profile. The “Name” field is required, and public and user profiles are visible to any site visitor. Other profile information may be required or optional, as configured by the site administrator.
User information provided during account registration can be modified or removed on the Profile> Edit panel. In most cases, users also have control over who can view a particular piece of profile content, limiting visibility on a field-by-field basis to friends, logged-in users, or administrators only. Site administrators can read and edit all profile data for all users.
This site records specific user actions in the form of “activity” data. The activity includes updates and comments posted directly to activity streams and descriptions of other actions performed while using the site, such as new friendships, newly joined groups, and Profile updates.
The content of activity items obeys the same privacy rules as the contexts in which the activity items are created. For example, activity updates made in a user’s Profile are publicly visible, while activity items generated in a private group are visible only to members of that group. Site administrators can view all activity items, regardless of context.
Activity items may be deleted at any time by users who created them. Site administrators can edit all activity items.
The content of private messages is visible only to the sender and the recipients of the message. With the exception of site administrators, who can read all private messages, the private message content is never visible to other users or site visitors. Site administrators may delete the content of any message.
