This includes, your name, address, age, sex, date of birth, phone number, etc.
We will also collect some of your sensitive personal information:

* We will maintain security of our systems and information: Your information is safe with us and even our employees cannot access it unless it is needed to service you.

* Your credit card information: Your CC/bank account information is used only to process the transaction.

* Every website inevitably collects information. However, we have a comprehensive information gathering policy to maintain your privacy.
* For Visitors (people who look into our store or visit us, but do not register with us) - When you visit our website, we know that someone is visiting us but we do NOT know that it is you. We ONLY count the number of visitors and track which pages/products are of greater interest to visitors. We do NOT gather or use any information about any specific persons who simply visit our site and do not register with us. For Customers (people who have an account with us or register on our site or order with us)
2. You have the right to know what information we have collected about you. You also have the right to change this information. If you would like to contact us about changing some aspect of the information we have for you, please write to us at customer service@firstname.lastname@example.org
3. In order to make changes to your information you will be required to first prove your identity to us. This prevents other individuals from accessing your files.
4. We will not reveal credit card numbers over the telephone. If there is an issue with your credit card we can handle it through your merchant bank (the process is easier than it sounds).
5. Any customer feedback we receive is also held in strict confidence. If we do disclose your feedback about our business or products it will be in a completely anonymous manner.
* Just in case, a transaction is involved in a legal dispute (usually credit card fraud), information might be requested from us in form of a witness summons (legal demand for information or appearance). In such cases, we might be required to furnish requisite information. In case this occurs, our policy is to first contact the customer (through preferred medium chosen by the customer) to inform them of our legal obligations.
* These issues are not common and generally happen in case of credit card frauds. Hence, such information sharing would help in protecting your account and business with us.

* Our Site may link to other websites that may collect personally identifiable information about you. Any such pages will clearly be identifiable in the browser URL and will not carry our logo on the top. We do not take any responsibility for the policies or actions of such websites whatsoever.

* Our site may have links from advertisers and we take NO responsibility of consequences after being re-directed to their websites.
