What Personal Information About Customers Does Kritter Koncepts Gather? The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at Kritter Koncepts. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses Kritter Koncepts. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see examples of the information we receive. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit Web sites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at Kritter Koncepts if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from Kritter Koncepts if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your account to reflect this by selecting unsubscribed in the newsletters menu.
What About Cookies? Cookies are AlphNumeric Identifiers that allow our servers to identify you and provide items like Automatic login, and Shopping cart Features.
Does Kritter Koncepts Share the Information It Receives? Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only with the subsidiaries Kritter Koncepts controls and as described below.
Agents: We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that Kritter Koncepts, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of Kritter Koncepts and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Kritter Koncepts, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
How Secure Is Information About Me? We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
What Information Can I Access? Kritter Koncepts gives you access to "Your Account" information for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.
What Choices Do I Have? As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of such Kritter Koncepts features as Automatic login, and permanent shopping carts. You can add or update certain information on pages such as those listed in the "My Account" pages. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your account to reflect this in the newsletter menu.
Children: Kritter Koncepts does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use Kritter Koncepts services only with involvement of a parent or guardian.
Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions: If you choose to visit Kritter Koncepts, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the state of Wisconsin. If you have any concern about privacy at Kritter Koncepts, please send us a thorough description to privacy@KritterKoncepts.net, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly. This Notice and the Conditions of Use may change also, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the Privacy Notice in effect at the time of use. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you may check our Web site to see any recent changes.
Information You Give Us: You provide most such information when you search, buy, post, participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate with customer service. For example, you provide information when you search for a product; place an order; provide information in Your Account (and you might have more than one if you have used more than one e-mail address when shopping with us); communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise; complete a questionnaire; by providing employer, school, or other such information; participate in Discussion Boards; provide and rate Reviews. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address, and phone number; and people to whom purchases have been shipped, including address and phone number.
