GRATIFY respects the privacy needs and concerns of our customers. We will not obtain personally identifying information about you unless you choose to provide such information to us voluntarily, whether at our salon, online, through mail order or other promotional activities. Because our customers are of vital importance to us, we do not participate in bulk email solicitations which you have not consented to receiving (i.e., "spam").
Collection of Your Information
Instances where personally identifiable information may be gathered include registrations (for example, registration on our website) and at our salon or by mail order. The types of personally identifying information we collect may include contact information (e.g., name, postal address, email address and phone number) and information about your hair care preferences, as well as other relevant information. When you visit us online, we also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information, such as the type of browser you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider, which of our pages you access, how long you spend on each page, and aggregate data about the number of visits you make and the products and services in which you are interested. The information we learn from you during your visit helps us to improve our site, respond to your requests and customize your shopping experience with GRATIFY. We use the personally identifiable information you provide to respond to any of your questions about our products and services. Also, we employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include website hosting and development, fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed only to perform their functions. We require companies with whom we contract for outsourced services to keep data received from us confidential and to use it only for the purposes indicated. We may, from time to time, supplement the information we collect with outside records to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. As required by law we may release personally identifying information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law or legal process (e.g. in response to a court order) or to protect the rights or property of GRATIFY, our users, our partners or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. In addition, in the event that all or substantially all of GRATIFY stock and/or assets are transferred or sold to another entity, we may transfer personally identifiable information to the acquiring entity.
