WHAT INFORMATION DOES APHRO CANDLE CO. COLLECT?
The Aphro Candle Co collects data that you provide on Aphrocandle.com by visiting our website or through transactions, email registrations, sweepstakes, contests, online memberships, or through phone and mail that you submit.
Aphro Candle Co. may collect and store two types of information: "personal information" and "automatic information."
Personal information tells us who you are, such as your name, gender, billing address, shipping address, email address, telephone number, date of birth or age, any personal preferences you choose to provide, transaction details such as style, size, price, discount, date, store, your credit card number and expiration date used for transactions, and an assigned password to protect your privacy.
Automatic information is information we may collect automatically whenever you interact with this website, such as your IP address, the type of computer you use, the web browser you use, and the web page that links you to our site. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. Each time you visit this site, our web server may automatically recognize and collect this information. Automatic information also includes "cookies" and "web beacons."
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies but allow you to change your browser so that it will not automatically accept cookies. Various browsers have different ways to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you, limit the kinds of cookies that can be placed on your computer, and let you delete cookies. Please review your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. Additionally, if you have a Flash player installed on your computer, flash cookies may be stored. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies, and the cookie management tools provided by your browser will not necessarily remove Flash cookies. The latest versions of many browsers let you control or delete Flash cookies through the browser's settings. If you use an older version of one of these browsers, upgrade to the most recent version and set it to update automatically. However, if you delete or remove cookies, it is possible that some portions of the site may not function as intended.
"Web beacons," also known as clear GIFs, single-pixel GIFs, or similar technologies, are small image files that we may place on web pages and within web-based email newsletters that we send. With cookies, web beacons allow us to accurately count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page and the number of times those pages are displayed. We can also use web beacons to let us know how many people opened a web-based email newsletter or message.
We may associate automatic information with your personal information. In the event of such association, such automatic information will be considered personal information.
How does Aphro Candle Co. use this information?
Aphro Candle Co. uses this information to confirm and process sales transactions to contact you with questions or communications about your order, or to respond to customer service inquiries.
Aphro Candle Co. also uses this information to enhance and personalize your shopping experience online, to communicate with you for marketing and promotional purposes, including via targeted postal pieces, phone messages, or personalized emails, and to improve the effectiveness of our websites and business activities. You can let us know your contact preferences regarding promotional communications directly to us online or by phone.
HOW DOES APHRO CANDLE CO. PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be unconditionally guaranteed to be secure. So, any information you send us is sent at your own risk.
However, when you order online, we use encryption technology, such as Secure Socket Layer Technology ("SSL"), to protect your personal information during data transport. SSL encrypts your order information, including your name, address, and credit card number, before it is transmitted to us to avoid the decoding of your data by anyone other than Aphro Candle Co.
DOES APHRO CANDLE CO. DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION TO OTHERS?
We may use and disclose to others information about your demographics and use our website in a manner that doesn't mean your identity. We may be able to match information collected from you on our website with data obtained from other sources or third parties.
Occasionally, we may partner with a co-sponsor to conduct a contest, sweepstakes, or other promotional event. In those situations, each participating website may collect or receive personal information from you and have the right to use your personal information by their policies.
We may disclose personal information in exceptional cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other users of our website, or anyone else who such activities could harm.
CAN I UNSUBSCRIBE?
Yes. Aphro Candle Co. honors requests to unsubscribe from receipt of emails, not only for promotional emails that Aphro Candle Co. sends but also for emails about Aphro Candle Co. that we permit other companies to send to their list of subscribers. So that you know, you may continue to receive emails from Aphro Candle Co. until such requests become effective.
