What Personal Information About Customers Does the Site Gather?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at the Site. Here are the types of information we gather.
• Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Site or give us in any other way. This information may include your name, address, contact information, and payment information, as well as products you order or comments you make. 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, making your future shopping experience more convenient, improving our products, and communicating with you. To see examples of information you give us, see below.
• Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Websites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses the Site. To see examples of automatic information, see below.
• E-mail Communications: To help us make emails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open email from 1BAG if your computer supports such capabilities. We send email as part of the order process in order to confirm your order and update you regarding your order status. If you do not want to receive newsletters from us, please choose the unsubscribe button on the bottom of our newsletter.
What About Cookies?
• Web browser “cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as personalized greetings and storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.
Does the Site Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business. We are not in the business of selling information to others. We share customer information only as described below.
• Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, or processing credit card payments. We may also occasionally utilize services that remove repetitive information from customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, and provide customer service. These service providers 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, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that 1BAG, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
• With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
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.
• We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. This information is transmitted using industry standard encryption techniques.
• 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 by hitting “Logout” on the screen.
How is Information in the Comment Section Used?
What About Links to Other Websites?
Our Site includes links to other Websites. This does not mean we endorse these Websites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these third-party Websites.
Which Information Can I Access?
The Site gives you access to a broad range of information about My Account and your interactions with the Site for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. To see examples of information you can access, see below.
What Choices Do I Have?
• As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide any personal information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of the many features of our Site such as My Account, and Customer Reviews.
• You can add or update certain information on pages such as those My Account, Your Wishlist, or Customer Reviews. When you update information, we may keep a copy of the prior version for our records.
