As a result of your accessing our Site, the trusted service providers may on our behalf, collect information about you.
Your first name and email address (if you provide them) as well as your navigation path through the Site will be collected. We may also ask them to store, on our behalf, similar information that we collected prior to our relationship with them. This willenable Fiddlersgreen.net to measure the number of visitors to the different areas of our Site, and to help make our Site more useful to our visitors.
How And When We Collect Information; Information We Collect
We collect “personal” information from you when you provide it to us. For example, if you purchase an item from us, we may collect your name, mailing address, telephone number, credit card number and email address. Contact information from your online registration is used to ship products. The contact information is also used to get in touch with you when necessary.
Financial information that is collected is only used to bill you for the products you purchase. Our Site’s registration form requires users to give us contact information (like their name and email address) and some demographic information (like address and phone number). If you select to receive information from Fiddlersgreen.net, we will use customer contact information from the registration form to send you electronic newsletters or similar types of information. Your contact information is also used to contact you when issues arise with online orders. If you sign up to receive a newsletter, we will collect your email address. If you utilize services or take advantage of special offers made by us or our marketing partners, we may collect other personal information about you.
Demographic and profile data is also collected at our Site and is currently solely used by Fiddlersgreen.net to improve and manage the internal operations of our Site.
We also collect personal information to provide you with an efficient, customized experience.
How We Use Your Information
We collect, store and process your personal information on servers located in the United States. We use the information we collect about you in order to provide our services and process your transactions, to provide customer service, to determine your eligibility to receive offers for special features or products, and to improve our products and services.
Fiddlersgreen.net will not sell or rent any of your personally identifiable information to third parties. Fiddlersgreen.net will not share any of your personally identifiable information with third parties except in the limited circumstances described below, or with your express permission. These third parties are limited by law or by contract from using the information for secondary purposes beyond the purposes for which the information is shared.
We may disclose the information we collect, to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf. These companies are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions that prohibit using the information except to market the specified Fiddlersgreen.net-related products or services, unless you have affirmatively agreed or given your prior permission for other uses.
We share aggregated statistical data with our business partners or for public relations. For example, we may disclose that a specific percentage of our users live in California. However, this aggregated information is not tied to personally identifiable information.
As with any other business, it is possible that Fiddlersgreen.net, in the future, could merge with or be acquired by another company. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor company would have access to the information maintained by Fiddlersgreen.net, including customer account information, but would continue to be bound by this statement of Your Privacy Rights unless and until it is amended as described below.
We share your information with our affiliates, subsidiaries and joint ventures to help coordinate the services we provide to you, enforce our terms and conditions, and promote trust and safety.
The practices described above are in accordance with federal law.
In addition, if other states in the future adopt privacy restrictions more restrictive than those under Federal law we will comply with those applicable provisions.
For your security, orders on our site are encrypted with SSL technology on both the client and server end. Fiddlersgreen.net endeavors to make sure that every transaction with the Site is 100% safe and secure. In order for SSL to work, though, you must have a browser that supports SSL technology.
This Site takes every commercially reasonable precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the Site, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the standardencryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, for billing or a customer service issue) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Our employees are frequently notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected.
Please note that e-mail may not be encrypted and cannot be considered a secure means of transmitting credit card numbers.
Fiddlersgreen.net will never ask you to submit your credit card information via e-mail.
