Wisecrack & Whimsy values your privacy.
As a general reminder, please think carefully before you decide to put anything on the internet. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information or other user information you may choose to submit in any public forums that we may offer through the Site in the future, or through any third party links available through the Site. To request removal of your personal information from any future public forums, please contact us as provided below. In some cases, we may not be able to remove personal information voluntarily disclosed by you in such forums for legal retention purposes or technical limitations (e.g., the data may not be searchable), in which case, we will notify you if we are unable to do so.
Gathering of Information
Section Overview: We collect user information when you use the Site. Sometimes you may submit it to us yourself, other times it may be collected automatically. You can manage and change your preferences as outlined below.
When you use the Site, create an account, and/or order products, your user information may be collected, used, and shared in a variety of manners. As detailed below, the type of user information collected may vary based on how and why it was gathered, but may include, among other things, your name, address, telephone number, email address, and other information that you voluntarily submit (e.g., when setting up an account or submitting an order on the Site, you may submit your contact information, fashion preferences and sizing information), information automatically collected about your usage of the Site (e.g., the content that you choose to view), and information about you that our third party partners may share with us.
The Company may collect user information that is voluntarily provided by you or with your permission. For example, we may ask you for information, such as your e-mail address, when you register your account with the Site. In connection with purchases you make, we may request additional personal information, such as your address, telephone number, and purchase details, in order to complete the purchase. Payments are processed through our third-party payment provider and we do not request and will not receive your credit card information. You may need to provide information to log into social media accounts, sign-up for newsletters, participate in polls, surveys and similar features, or to respond to offers. You always have the option not to provide the information we request. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you can still visit many portions of the Site, but you may be unable to access certain options and services and will not be able to purchase products. When you register an account through the Site or provide information to the Company in any other manner, you agree to provide only true, accurate, current, and complete information.
We may use hyperlinks on the Site which will redirect you to a social network if you click on the respective link. However, when you click on a social plug-in, such as Facebook’s “Like” button, Twitter’s “tweet” button or the Google+, that particular social network’s plugin will be activated and your browser will directly connect to that provider’s servers. If you do not use these buttons, none of your data will be sent to the respective social network’s plugin provider. So for example, when you click on the Facebook’s “Like” button on the Site, Facebook will receive your IP address, the browser version and screen resolution, and the operating system of the device you have used to access the Site. Settings regarding privacy protection can be found on the websites of these social networks and are not within our control.
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, the Site currently does not respond to DNT browser signals or mechanisms.
Use of Your Information
To Facilitate and Fulfill Product Orders
We use information that you provide to answer questions regarding our products and to allow you to place orders of our products. Your information is also used to assist our third-party providers in fulfilling product orders.
To Target Content
To develop and provide content and advertising to you that is targeted to your interests, we use the analytics collected by the systems described above to determine which areas of the Site you prefer based upon the frequency of your visits and engagement with those areas. We may make reasonable assumptions based on your browser provided data to target relevant content and advertising to you on our Site and elsewhere where we may be acting as a third party. We may also make reasonable geographic and demographic assumptions based on your presented IP address to target relevant content and advertising.
To Provide Interactive Communications from the Site
To enhance your experience we may provide you with interactive communications, using the e-mail address that you provide to us. Such interactive communications are provided only to those users who have expressly provided us with their permission to receive them. From time to time we may provide e-mails highlighting new features available through the Site to those users who have expressly provided us with their permission to send such communications.
To Provide Communications with Third Parties (including to Data Processors)
We respect the privacy of our users and will not disclose or distribute your information to any third party, except as provided for in this Policy.
Sharing of Information
You may be requested to voluntarily provide certain user information during your use of the Site. If you choose to do so, that user information may be shared with the Company as well as business partners and vendors providing hosting and other services for the Company. This includes information shared with Data Processors.
Information Shared with Third-Party Providers (including Data Processors, Contractors and Service Providers)
We use third parties to provide credit card processing, e-mail service providers and hosting services on the Site. When you sign up for such services, we will share your user information only as necessary for the third party to provide that service. We use third parties to ship and delivery your product orders. These third parties are prohibited from using your user information for any other purpose. With respect to credit card processing, we do not collect, store, or process any credit card information.
We may hire other companies to provide support for our services that you have purchased, and to provide limited ancillary services on our behalf, such as performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service.
In some instances, these companies may collect information directly from you. In these cases, you will be notified of the involvement of the external service provider. In all cases, these companies are subject to agreements that require them to maintain the confidentiality of your information and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose. We have contractual agreements in place with such third parties that require compliance with applicable privacy and data collection laws.
In the Event of Sale or Bankruptcy
As Required By Law
The Company may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law such as to comply with a subpoena or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the edicts of the law, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on the Company, or to protect and defend the rights or property of the Company.
"Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. Like most website operators, the Company gathers from users of the Site Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type, and the locations of the websites the user views right before arriving at, while navigating, and immediately after leaving the Site. Although such information cannot be directly associated with a specific person, it may be possible for the Company to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data. The Company analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Site to help the Company better understand how the Site is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, the Company is able to better design the Site to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, the Company may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Site users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site.
Section Overview: We care about the protection of your user information and use industry standard safeguards to do so. Of course, it is important to keep in mind that no data transmission on the Internet is guaranteed to be 100% secure.
Your information is stored on servers located in the United States. We use industry standard physical, electronic, and organizational safeguards to protect your user information against loss or theft as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect your privacy. We treat data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the Company. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet. If you are concerned that your privacy may have been breached, please contact us as provided below.
Privacy of Children
If you are less than 18 years old, please do not send any user information to us--including information such as your name, address, or e-mail address. We do not knowingly collect (nor do we wish to collect) any personally identifiable information or other user information from children under the age of 18. In the event that we learn we have collected any personal information from a child under the age of 18, we will delete that information from our database and terminate the corresponding account, if any.
California Privacy Rights
Pursuant to Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code, residents of California have the right to request from a business, with whom the California resident has an established business relationship, certain information with respect to the types of personal information the business shares with third parties for direct marketing purposes by such third party and the identities of the third parties with whom the business has shared such information during the immediately preceding calendar year. Please also see our CCPA Statement for more information. To request a copy of the information disclosure provided by the Company pursuant to Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code, please contact us using the information described below.
Changing Your User Information; Account Termination
If we make any material changes to this Policy, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending an email notification, providing notice through the Sites, or updating the "Last Updated" date at the beginning of this Policy. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
