Information Collected Automatically: Whenever you visit our Website, we automatically collect some information about your transactions with us, and your use of our Website. For example, we automatically collect your IP address, for SinaLite internal use only, such as to help us diagnose problems with our server and administer our Website. We also automatically track certain information about your activities on our Website such as the type of web browser you are using and click stream data. If you are a registered SinaLite customer, we link this automatically-collected data to the Personal Information we collect about you described below. We use this linked information to do internal research on your interests and to help us better understand and serve you.
Information You Send To Us: If you choose to provide us with Personal Information, such as by sending us an e-mail or by filling out a form with your Personal Information and submitting it to us through our Website, we collect the Personal Information that you provide to us. For example, if you register or sign up for an account with us, we collect your name, e-mail address, and password. If you place an order with us, we collect the Personal Information that you provide to us such as your shipping, billing, and payment information. From time-to-time SinaLite may give you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our Website. If you participate, we will request certain Personal Information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose the requested information.
Information About Your Transactions With Us: In addition, we collect your order information and purchase and payment history.
Use and Disclosure of Information: We use the information that we collect about you to maintain, improve, and administer our Website, operate our business, provide products and services that you request, administer your account, inform you about products and services that might be of interest to you, and personalize your online experience. In order to carry out certain business functions, such as order fulfillment, e-mail delivery, or marketing, we sometimes hire other companies to perform services on our behalf. We may disclose Personal Information that we collect about you to these companies to enable them to perform these services, but they are required to safeguard the Personal Information and are not authorized to use it for any other purpose than completing their contractual requirements to SinaLite. For example, as a part of the normal process of completing your purchase, SinaLite may provide your Personal Information to a third party payment processor, such as Moneris, PayPal, or Authorize.Net depending on your chosen method of payment. Please be aware that, because of the limitations of the systems used by some financial institutions, the statement you receive from your credit card or financial institution may show the name of a third party payment processor, such as Moneris, PayPal, or Authorize.Net instead of or in addition to the SinaLite name. In addition, we may share the Personal Information we collect with other companies with whom we have joint marketing arrangements. If you do not wish to have your Personal Information shared with these organizations, simply email us at email@example.com to remove you from the list. We may also disclose information, including Personal Information, that we collect about you in other circumstances as required or permitted by law. For example, SinaLite reserves the right to disclose Personal Information, including account information, when we believe such disclosure is appropriate to cooperate with an investigation of activities claimed to be unlawful, to enforce our terms, or to protect the rights or property of SinaLite or others. In addition, it is possible that in the future another company may acquire SinaLite or its assets. It is also possible that SinaLite may partner with or purchase another company to continue to do business as a combined entity. In the event that this occurs, it is possible that our customer information, including your Personal Information, may be transferred to the new business entity as one of SinaLite’s assets. In such an event, we will update this policy to reflect any change in ownership or control of your Personal Information.
