What information does Stuffstr collect?
Information You Provide to Us:
We may receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us, including, for example, the following information:
- Registration information. Through the registration process and/or through your account settings, we may collect and store Personal Information such as your name, email address, and club or membership numbers associated with certain retailers or resellers. Certain information may be required to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features; for example, we may collect your phone number and home address in the event that we need to arrange for shipment of a product to you.
- User Submissions. As described in the Terms (http://www.stuffstr.com/terms), we may collect and store other information you provide to us, including communications with other users, feedback, questions, comments, suggestions, or ideas, so that we can provide and improve the Services for our users.
We may communicate with you if you’ve provided us the means to do so. For example, if you’ve given us your email address, we may email you about your use of the Services or, if you have given us explicit permission, send you promotional email offers on behalf of other businesses. Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps us make our communications with you more interesting and improve our services. If you do not want to receive communications from us, please indicate your preference by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information Collected Automatically:
Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, device identification, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our Services, and the page or feature you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we may transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.
We may use this data to customize content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns. We may also use it to improve the Services – for example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Services, and we can use that knowledge to make the Services interesting to as many users as possible.
Will Stuffstr share any of the Personal Information it receives?
We may share your Personal Information with third parties as described in this section:
Information that’s no longer personally identifiable: We may anonymize your Personal Information so that you are not individually identified, and provide that information to our partners. We may also provide aggregate usage information to our partners, who may use such information to understand how often and in what ways people use our Services, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal customer experience. However, we never disclose aggregate usage information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally, as an individual.
We may use third party analytics services, such as Mixpanel and/or Google Analytics, to grow our business, to improve and develop our Services, to monitor and analyze use of our Services, to aid our technical administration, to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our Services, and to verify that users have the authorization needed for us to process their requests. These services may collect and retain some information about you.
Affiliated Businesses: In certain situations, businesses or third party websites we’re affiliated with may sell or provide products or services to you through or in connection with the Services (either alone or jointly with us). You can recognize when an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction or service, and we will share your Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that it is related to such transaction or service; for example when you choose to take an action with regard to a particular item you purchased from a participating retailer, we will share that information with that participating retailer, or when you elect to resell an item through a third party resale marketplace such as eBay, we will provide that marketplace with the information they need to perform the transaction and pay you the proceeds. We have no control over the policies and practices of third party websites or businesses as to privacy or anything else, so if you choose to take part in any transaction or service relating to a participating retailer or an affiliated website or business, please review all such business’ or websites’ terms and conditions and privacy policies.
Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. For example, if you want to sell or donate products that are registered with the Services, we may share certain information with third parties that arrange such resale or donation. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Stuffster User Profiles and Submissions: Certain user profile or account information, including your name, Stuffstr User ID, and any video or image content that you have uploaded to the Services, may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Services or address your request for the Services. Please remember that any Content you upload to your public user profile, along with any Personal Information or content that you voluntarily disclose online in a manner other users can view (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, etc.) becomes publicly available, and can be collected and used by anyone. Your Stuffstr User ID may also be displayed to other users if and when you transfer products to them, send messages or comments, or upload images or videos through the Services, and other users may be able to contact you through messages and comments. Additionally, if you sign into the Services through a third party social networking site or service, your list of “friends” from that site or service may be automatically imported to the Services, and such “friends,” if they are also registered users of the Services, may be able to access certain non-public information you have entered in your Services user profile or account. Again, we do not control the policies and practices of any other third party site or service.
Business Transfers: We may choose to buy or sell assets, and may share and/or transfer customer information in connection with the evaluation of and entry into such transactions. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
Is Personal Information about me secure?
Your account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. If you access your account via a third party site or service, you may have additional or different sign-on protections via that third party site or service. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password and/or other sign-on mechanism appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
We endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.
What Personal Information can I access?
You may access, and, in some cases, edit or delete the following information you’ve provided to us:
Name and password;
Participating retailer club or membership numbers;
User profile or account information, including images, messages and comments you have uploaded to or transmitted through the Services.
The information you can view, update, and delete may change as the Services change. If you have any questions about viewing or updating information we have on file about you, please contact us at email@example.com.
Under California Civil Code Sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of Personal Information we share with our affiliates and/or third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties. If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What choices do I have?
You can always opt not to disclose information to us, but keep in mind some information may be needed to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features.
You may be able to add, update, or delete information as explained above. When you update information, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records. Please note that we may be required (by law or otherwise) to retain your account information or any other information associated with it and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain period of time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). Some information may remain in our records after your deletion of such information from your account. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding our privacy policies, please send us a detailed message to email@example.com, and we will try to resolve your concerns.
