Privacy Policy

                                                                                                                 

At Oh Shoe Designs LLC (hereinafter, the “Company” or “we” or “us”), we value our customers and respect their privacy. In order to provide products, services, and valuable offers to you and your friends and family, we collect information from our interactions with you to help us achieve that goal. The privacy of those who visit this website [www.ohshoedesigns.com] (the “Website”) is important to us. We support the goals and guidelines set forth by oversight laws and bodies such as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, the Center for Media Education, the Children’s Advertising Review Unit of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, and other organizations devoted to providing online safety and privacy for children, households, parents and schools. Accordingly, we design and operate our technology and online services with our customers’ protection and privacy in mind. We have made this privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) to let customers and visitors to the Website (together referred to as “Users” or “you”) know how we collect, use, and safeguard your personal information.

The Website is owned and operated by the Company. By visiting any part of the Website and/or making online purchases of products, you agree to the policies and practices described in this Privacy Policy. In addition, please note that your use of the Website is also subject to our Terms and Conditions of Use/Terms and Conditions of Sale (of which this Privacy Policy is a part), and any modifications that we may make to it as set forth therein. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Website.

Data Collection

We do not routinely collect personally identifying information from Users accessing and using the Website. We may, however, make use of a standard feature found in Internet browser software, called a “cookie,” to assign each visitor a unique, random number. Cookies allow us to track the pages on the Website visited by Users and to collect other statistical information. Using cookies helps us to deliver a more personalized service to our Users and to improve our services. Through the use of cookies, we may automatically collect information and data, such as your IP address, browser type, domain name and specific webpages through which you click. Cookies are not required for you to browse the Website, but they are required to add items to your shopping cart and for you to place an order. Cookies should not contain personal data other than your IP address. To learn more about cookies and how to use them, visit the Help portion of your internet browser, commonly located on the browser toolbar, which will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable cookies altogether. Generally, please note that cookies are beneficial by allowing you to take full advantage of many of the Website’s features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on. By using the Website, you consent to our use of cookies.

 In order to monitor subscription compliance, we collect limited usage information in connection with User logins and passwords from Users who order products from us. This information is kept confidential and is not shared or sold to third parties. We collect information such as your name, email, postal address, phone number, and billing and credit card or debit card or PayPal account information when you register this information with the Website, place an order online, or save your information with us online.

 Our primary purpose for collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, efficient and beneficial experience. We may use your personal information for the purpose of improving our services and the Website and its contents; to inform you about future marketing, service updates and promotional offers; to communicate preferences which you have indicated; to customize the advertising and content you see and improve future shopping for you; to determine whether you are eligible for an offer; to verify information; to send you newsletters, coupons and promotions; or for any other purpose disclosed at the point of collection. We may also use your information to provide services and customer support that you may request, as well as to correct problems, resolve disputes, and collect fees.

When you browse the Website or make a purchase online, the information recorded and collected automatically, such as your IP address, browser type, domain name and specific webpages through which you click, is used in aggregate to help us look for trends so that we can improve the Website and your browsing experience. These statistics may also be used in communications, such as our financial reports, but we do not identify individuals in these communications. When you purchase items from us, we use your personal information to process and fulfill your order, send you email to notify you of the status of your order, or to contact you by phone, postal mail or email if we have questions regarding your order or purchase. When you register with us or when you make a purchase from the Website, we may use your personal information to send you information and updates about new products, special sales and promotions related to your purchase, and to help us learn more about your shopping preferences. These communications may be sent via email or postal mail. You always have the choice to opt out of receiving these marketing communications.

 We may at our discretion use third party companies to place advertising at other websites. These advertising companies collect information about your visits to the Website or interaction with our email through the use of “web beacons.” This technology allows them to use information about your visits to this and other websites to help us serve you better. We also use web beacons to review how visitors navigate the Website or interact with our email advertising. We may also use the information we collect on the Website as necessary to comply with legal requirements, to enforce the Website Terms and Conditions of Use/Terms and Conditions of Sale, to prevent fraud, to cooperate with law enforcement and regulatory authorities and to stop other prohibited, illegal or harmful activities. We will keep your personal information only as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or such longer period as may be required by applicable law.

Data Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and while maintaining this information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of personal information, we have put in place physical and electronic procedures to safeguard and secure the confidentiality and integrity of the personal information we collect. These safeguards are designed to protect against, but are not a guarantee against, the loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction of personal information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is absolutely secure.

 Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot and do not guarantee the information’s absolute security. When a User enters sensitive information, such as credit card information, on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using encryption techniques common in e-commerce, such as secure socket layer technology (SSL). This means that all of your personal information, including your credit card number, is encrypted to avoid the decoding of that information by anyone other than us. To check the security of your connection, look for an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your web browser). This and a change in the first characters of the site address from “http” to “https” should alert you that this protective technology is active.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Do not share your password with anyone. When you start your session in a password-protected area, please make sure you have a secure connection and that you log out once you have finished. If you use a public computer terminal to access the Website, please be sure to log out of your account and ensure that the computer terminal you have used has not saved your username or password.

To avoid being a victim of a “phishing” attempt by a third-party to fraudulently acquire sensitive information such as your user name, password or credit card details by pretending to be a trustworthy entity, be wary of emails that you receive from what appear to be legitimate sources, such as the Website, seeking to collect your personal information by asking you to click on a hypertext link incorporated in such email. If we need to verify any personally-identifiable information in order to process an order or otherwise, we will send you an email requesting that you contact us, and we will not use an email incorporating these hypertext links. If you receive any such email purporting to be from the Website and asking you to click on a hypertext link, please delete the email. If you are not sure and think the email might have been a legitimate communication from us, please email us at info@ohshoedesigns.com.

How We Protect Children’s Privacy Online

The Website is directed for use by adults. Because we are concerned about the safety of children when they use the Internet, those under the age of 13 should not use the Website. Moreover, if you are aged 13 or older, but under the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside, your parent or legal guardian should use the Website on your behalf and you should not use the Website on your own or provide any personal information to the Company. Consistent with our support of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we will never knowingly request, collect or maintain personal information from anyone age 12 or younger, including but not limited to names, email addresses, street addresses and cellphone numbers.

 If a parent or guardian of a child age 12 or younger believes that a child has provided us with any personal data, a parent or guardian of that child should contact us (see below for Company contact information) and ask to have this personal information deleted from our records. If we otherwise obtain knowledge that we have personal information about a child age 12 or younger, we will delete that personal information from our existing files.

Legally Required Disclosure

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information if we are required to do so by law or if we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process. We also maintain the right to transfer your information in case of a corporate restructuring (such as a merger or acquisition) as long as the receiving entity adopts this or a stricter privacy policy that applies to your information.

 Links to Other Websites and Services

The Website may contain links to other websites. You should review the policies of those websites before providing any personal information, as we do not control their privacy policies or practices. The Website provides links solely for the convenience of our customers.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We continually strive to provide the best products and services. Because the Internet is a dynamic and ever-changing medium and as new or changed products and services are released and threats and technologies evolve, changes to this Privacy Policy may be required. We hereby expressly reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time. We expect most such changes to be minor, but there may be cases where changes may be more significant, and if so, we will provide a more prominent notice of any such changes. We encourage you to examine this Privacy Policy for changes when using the Website; any revised Privacy Policy will be posted with an updated effective date noted at the end of this Privacy Policy.
