GIVIUSA.COM PRIVACY NOTICE
This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for www.giviusa.com (the “Website”). This privacy notice applies solely to information collected through the Website. It will notify you of the following:
- What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the Website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
- What choices are available to you regarding the use of your personally identifiable information.
- The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
- How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on the Website. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or through other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your personally identifiable information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request (e.g. to ship an order).
Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy notice.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
- See what data we have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data we have about you.
- Have us delete any data we have about you.
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
Though no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, we take care to protect your information. When you submit personally identifiable information via the Website, we take steps to protect it both online and offline.
Whenever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), such information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only those employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Additionally, the computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use “cookies” on the Website. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a Website visitor’s hard drive to help us improve the visitor’s access to the Website and identify repeat visitors to the Website. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on the Website. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users, which allows us to enhance our users’ experience on the Website. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on the Website.
We share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
At times, it may be necessary for us to use an outside shipping company to ship orders or a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. We do not authorize such third parties to retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.
We may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information as necessary for the third party to provide these services. We do not authorize such parties to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
The Website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave the Website and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
