This Policy applies to all relevant information collected by or provided to us or our authorized third-party vendors or partners and/or in connection with the Site as of the Effective Date. When we make any material changes to this Policy, we will update the Effective Date above and may also inform you by email sent to the address associated with products or services you may request from us and/or any Account you may open with us. We will treat your continued use of the products or services following such notice as your acceptance of the changes.
We may collect Personal Information you provide to us when you use the Site and/or our products or services. We may also collect Personal Information about you from other consumers, prospective consumers, Site users, and other individuals and entities with whom Shaun T has contact (such as those served by internet-connected devices or household recipients of direct mail to “current resident”). We may collect Personal Information in order improve our products or services, to deliver products and services and perform obligations under contracts we have with you, to comply with our own legal obligations, and for other purposes as described below.
For example, we may collect and maintain Personal Information about you to create a personal profile containing purchasing preferences and other information that you voluntarily provide to us if you create an Account with us. Examples of the types of information we may collect for this purpose include your first and last name, a valid email address, and geographic location or address. Creating an Account with us may allow you to make orders more easily and also allows us to enhance your purchasing experiences. Additionally, if you order from us, we may ask you for information such as name, address, telephone number, email address, and credit card number to process your order. We may use your email address to send a confirmation and, if necessary, may use the other information to contact you for help to process the order. As indicated below, we may also use your email address to notify you about special offers and promotions. You can choose not to provide such Personal Information, in which case you may not be able to make purchases, or access or use portions of the Site or some of its features.
We may also collect, in instances where you have provided it, information about other individuals, including their email address and Personal Information. If you are sharing information with us about any other individuals, you must obtain their consent.
When you use the Site, we may automatically gather certain information from you. This may include usage information, such as information on when, how often and for how long you use the Site and the content you submit and view. This also may include server log data such as the IP address, time zone, operating system, some of the cookies installed on your device, or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site. As described below, we may collect this information through a number of means, including server logs, cookies, online tracking mechanisms, and in connection with third parties. We may associate such information with other personally identifiable information we have about you.
We may use certain third party services to assist us in analysis, auditing, research, and reporting regarding the Site and the products or services we offer. For instance, our web servers may collect “log data.” Log data provides aggregate information about the number of visits to different pages on the Site. We may use log data for troubleshooting purposes and to track which pages people visit in order to improve the Site. Third-party vendors may also collect aggregate log data independently from us.
Some of the pages on the Site may also contain electronic images known as web beacons that allow us to count the number of users who have visited those pages. These web beacons collect only limited information such as a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides. Such web beacons do not carry or collect any Personal Information and you cannot opt-out or refuse them. However, where they operate with cookies, you can render them ineffective by opting out of cookies or changing the cookie settings in your browser.
The Site creates session cookies for each visit in order to facilitate your visit. The session cookie expires at the end of the session.
We may also use persistent cookies, which remain on your device for much longer. Cookies do not corrupt or damage your computer or computer files.
We use analytics and customization cookies, including third party cookies, to gather information on how our Site is being used by our visitors and to measure how popular our marketing campaigns are. We use the data we get to help customize our Site, products, and services for you and make the content you see as relevant as possible. We may also use the data we collect to help identify and prevent fraud, and to track visits from our affiliates or partners.
Social networking cookies allow visitors to share our pages and content through third-party social networking websites.
You may opt out of receiving personalized advertisements from advertising companies that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative or who subscribe to the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices and www.aboutads.info/choices.
Some of the pages on the Site may contain electronic images known as web beacons that allow use to count the number of users who have visited those pages. These collect only limited information such as a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides. These web beacons do not carry any personal Information and you cannot opt-out or refuse them. However, where they operate with cookies, you can render them ineffective by changing the cookie setting in your browser.
Purchases generally require credit card information for processing. This includes name, credit card number, expiration date, billing and/or mailing address, and authentication codes or related information as needed to authorize the charge and complete the transaction. Credit card data transferred in connection with any Payment Processor is via a Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) line if you are using a SSL enabled browser such as Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome. We may also use SSL on other select pages where you enter Personal Information. This ensures that your Personal Information is encrypted as it travels over the Internet. This secure mode is enabled before any such information is transmitted from your computer. We do not receive or store complete credit card information, though when you place an order through the Site, our third party Payment Processor may maintain your order information for its records unless and until you ask to delete this information.
We may use third party service providers or content to send or augment our marketing emails, texts, or communications. While there are no cookies in the email, when an email recipient clicks on a link to the Site included in the email, a persistent cookie may be placed on the user’s device. If used, this cookie measures the effectiveness of our email marketing efforts, helping us to better understand how our users navigate through the Site, and to enhance user experience. To that end, we may collect a variety of information about how users interact with our marketing efforts, including how many times the email is opened and/or clicked, the browser type used, operating system, user email program, etc.
In addition, third parties that may assist with our marketing communications may use pixel tags that help us send an email in a format you can read, to allow us to know which communications you act upon, and to better target the content of future communications. We may also use these tags, for example, to track the aggregate number of emails read and whether any of the links in the email were accessed.
Additionally, we may share, exchange, or rent information that may include your name, address, email address, demographic data (such as age, gender, income level, and purchasing profiles), and purchasing behavior with carefully selected third-party organizations including our outside vendors, marketers of products and services potentially of interest to you, and cooperative database services. We may use cooperative databases primarily to identify potential subscribers and customers.
You may also be able to create an Account by logging in through a Social Site such as Facebook. Integration with Social Sites may allow you to automatically populate your profile that may be associated with our Site with information and content from your Social Site account profile and to invite your Social Site connections to join the Site. It also may allow us to better target our advertising within such Social Sites (to the extent enabled by the applicable Social Site). We will use, store, and disclose such information and content obtained in this manner in accordance with this Policy. Please remember that the manner in which Social Sites themselves use, store, and disclose your information and content (including with respect to any choices you may have to limit or control disclosure to us) is governed by the terms and conditions and privacy policies of each individual Social Site and any applicable privacy settings you may be able to control, and not Shaun T.
Shaun T does not knowingly collect information from minors and the Site and any products or services we offer are intended for adults over the age of 18. Consistent with applicable law, we do not knowingly collect personal information from minors under the age of thirteen (13) without the consent of their parents or guardians. If we learn that we have inadvertently obtained information in violation of applicable laws prohibiting collection of information from minors without such consent, upon proper notice, authority, and necessary confirmation of such, we will work to promptly delete it.
We may use the personal information provided or obtained through the Site or our services to:
As explained above, we process your data to provide you with the goods or services you have requested or purchased from us. We use this information to refine our goods and services to better tailor them to your needs and to communicate with you about other goods or services we offer. Most of the time, we need to process your personal data to fulfill an order for goods or services. Sometimes we have a legitimate interest in processing data to better understand the needs, concerns, and interests of our Site visitors and customers so we can operate optimally as a business. And sometimes, we rely upon your consent, in which case we will keep a record of it and honor your choices.
We may, and we may authorize third parties to, create aggregate records from personal information by excluding information that makes the information identifiable. We may use and disclose, and authorize third parties to use and disclose, aggregate non-personal information at our discretion.
We may also combine the information you provide to us over time and we may combine such information with information that is publicly available, collected through cookies and other technologies, and information that we receive from our partners, Payment Processors, and other third parties. We may use that combined information to better provide you our products and services, and to better provide you personalized content, customized content, and advertising.
We want you to understand when and with whom we may share personal or other information we have collected about you or your activities on our Site. We may routinely share Personal Information with:
We may disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us, in our sole discretion. We may disclose and exchange information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of our business, a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy. We may also share personal or other information we have collected about you or your activities on our Site as you may request or otherwise agree.
We may also use third party services such as Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site — you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We may share aggregated and non-personal information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with third parties to develop and deliver targeted advertising on the Site and on websites of third parties. You can opt out of some of these services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out portal at: http://optout.aboutads.info/. For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) educational page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/how-does-it-work.
We may combine personal information we collect with additional personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated non personal information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers, and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to our Site and the most popular features or services accessed. This information does not contain any personal information and may be used to develop website content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising. We may also report aggregated, de-identified data relating to activity on the Site to third parties or the general public. We may combine such data with data obtained from third-party sources in order to generate such reports.
In the event of a merger, sale of capital stock or assets, reorganization, consolidation, or similar transaction involving Shaun T, the information we possess (including personally identifiable information) shall be transferred as a corporate asset to the acquiring entity, provided that such entity will continue to handle such information in accordance with this Policy.
You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our Site or products or services we offer because such information may be required in order for you to register an Account with us; purchase products or services; participate in a contest, promotion, survey, or sweepstakes; ask a question; or initiate other transactions on our Site.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you no longer wish to receive communications regarding the Site or our products or services. Opt-out requests may not be able to be immediately processed, and we may also continue to send you other types of transactional and relationship email communications, such as service announcements, administrative notices, and surveys, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. You may request that we not share your personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes by contacting us at email@example.com. Please also note that changing information in your Account or otherwise opting out of receipt of promotional email communications will only affect future activities or communications from us.
Account owners may be able to log into their Account and view, amend, or delete their Account information. Please note that while changes or deletions to your Account or Personal Information may be reflected promptly in active user databases, our servers or our associated third parties may retain previously provided information, and may be required to keep certain information and not delete it (or to keep information for a certain amount of time, in which case Shaun T will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements).
Also, changes to, or deletion of, any Account information does not affect any other information collected by Shaun T, which Shaun T may retain and continue to use or disclose in accordance with this Policy. If we have already provided your Personal Information to a third party before you have changed your preferences or updated your Account or Personal Information with us, you may have to change your preferences directly with that third party.
We reserve the right to verify the identity of any person making a request to opt-out or to delete or modify Personal Information; provided, however, that we will have no liability of any kind resulting from false or erroneous requests or any change or deletion made by us for any reason.
We store Personal Information for only as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes described above, as we determine is necessary for business records, and as required under applicable law.
We take reasonable measures to protect your Personal Information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.
To mitigate this risk, you should use secure usernames and passwords and carefully protect them from disclosure and implement updated internet security and virus protection on your device(s). If you suspect that your device’s security or your information has been compromised or your password accessed or used by an unauthorized third party, immediately change your password and take other security steps as may be necessary or recommended in such circumstances.
If we become aware of a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may post a notice through the Site if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to use in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
Users should also be aware of how they handle and disclose their Personal Information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website at http://www.business.ftc.gov/privacy-and-security/consumer-privacy for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.
The following provisions apply only to residents of the state of California:
Section 22575 of the California Business & Professions Code requires website and online service operators to disclose whether they honor web browser “Do Not Track” settings. At this time, no standard has been adopted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) regarding such practices, and given current industry considerations, Shaun T does not generally respond to “do not track” signals and may collect Personal Information about your online activities over time and across different web sites when you visit the Site, for example by using cookies on our Site. We will update our practices and Policy as these standards evolve. For more information about Do Not Track, please visit www.allaboutdnt.org.
If you are a California resident you have the following rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act:
Right to Know. You have the right to know and see what data we have collected about you over the past 12 months, including:
Right to Delete. You have the right to request that we delete the personal information we have collected from you (and direct our service providers to do the same).
Other Rights. You can request certain information about our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year. This request is free and may be made once a year. You also have the right not to be discriminated against for exercising any of the rights listed above.
Certain information may be exempt from such requests under applicable law. For example, we need certain types of information so that we can provide our Services to you. If you ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use our Services.
Please see below under “How to Exercise your Rights” for information on contacting us to exercise your rights.
We collect the following categories of personal information:
We use and disclose these categories of information to enable use of our sites, services, and products, to communicate with you, to understand how our users interact with our sites, to facilitate bookings, to improve our offerings as otherwise described in this Policy.
California law requires certain disclosures about personal information we “sell,” which for the purposes of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), means making personal information available to third parties in exchange for valuable consideration, which some may claim includes allowing advertising companies to collect unique cookie IDs through our sites when you use our Services. Under that interpretation, we “sell” personal information to advertise our products to you. In the preceding 12 months, we have “sold” the following categories of personal information to the following categories of third parties:
Categories: The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.
Third Parties: Interest based advertising partners.
You have the right to opt out of these sales at any time by clicking the “Do Not Sell My Information” link on our Services. We do not knowingly “sell” personal information about consumers under the age of 16.
We do not “sell” Personal Information as defined under Nevada’s consumer privacy law (SB 220). As an added assurance to individuals who entrust their Personal Information to us, they may sign up for a do not sell my information log that we maintain. To do so, please email us at us firstname.lastname@example.org, and include the reference line “Nevada Do Not Sell”. We may contact you for additional information in order to process your request.

If you use the Site from the European Union (EU), Canada, or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from US law, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States. The United States does not have the same data protection laws as the EU, Canada, and some other regions.

The following terms shall also apply to our collection, use, and retention of the personal information of applicable EU, UK, and Swiss residents:
Basis for collection. As set out above, we collect and process personal information for which you have given your express consent at the time of collection.

Sensitive data. We do not collect sensitive data, for example, biometric data, health data, or data revealing racial or ethnic origin, from visitors to our Site.
Authorized transfer. We also may disclose personal information for other purposes or to other third parties when you have consented to or requested such disclosure. Please be aware that we will disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We are not liable for appropriate onward transfers of personal information to third parties.
Data processors. We may retain third parties to process or analyze personal information we collect from our site. For example, a site may be maintained or hosted by a third party service provider or a promotion may be administered by a sales promotion agency. These suppliers and other third parties who provide services for us are contractually obligated not to use personal information about you except as we authorize.
Profiling. We may analyze personal information we have collected about you to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information that is relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use personal information about you to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.
Your rights. Your rights include: (a) a right to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal information about you to which you have previously given consent; (b) a right to object to processing of personal information about you for the purpose of direct marketing; and (c) a right to have incorrect personal information about you corrected or removed.

Any personal information you have shared publicly with others may continue to be publicly visible on the site.
You also have the right to obtain a copy of the personal information we have about you, although we reserve the right to charge a fee for this depending on the nature and frequency of your request(s) and our cost to provide the information.
If you are located in the European Union, the UK, or Switzerland and the GDPR applies to you, and you are or have been our customer, we may send you marketing communications based on our legitimate interests, subject always to your right to opt out of such communications. Further, if you are located in the European Union, the UK, or Switzerland and the GDPR applies to you, we will not share your personal information with a third party for such third party’s marketing purposes, unless you have specifically consented to us doing so.
You may contact us as indicated below to exercise any of the above rights. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity, and in some circumstances we may charge a reasonable fee for access to your personal information. We are not obligated to make a data access or data portability disclosure if we cannot verify that the person making the request is the person about whom we collected information, or is someone authorized to act on such person’s behalf. Any personal information we collect from you to verify your identity in connection with your request will be used solely for the purposes of verification.

For purposes of the GDPR, we are a “controller” and you are a “data subject.”
Please note that you may only make a CCPA-related data access or data portability disclosure request twice within a 12-month period.
If you choose to contact us directly, you will need to provide us with:
We are not obligated to make a data access or data portability disclosure if we cannot verify that the person making the request is the person about whom we collected information, or is someone authorized to act on such person’s behalf.
