Privacy Policy - FishingSir

PRIVACY POLICY

We respect your privacy as well as online safety and we are committed to protecting your personal information. To know more, please read the following notice about our Privacy Policy.

This privacy policy will tell you how we collect, use and under certain conditions disclose your personal information. This privacy policy also explains measures we have taken to protect your personal information. Finally, this Privacy Policy explains your options regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information. By visiting our site, you accept the practices described in this Policy.

Please note this Privacy Policy applies only to this site. This privacy policy does not necessarily apply to our offline collection of your personal information. Please see below for details. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices on any non-FishingSir.com website to which this Site links or that links to this Site.

INFORMATION COLLECTING

FishingSir.com collects information from you through several different ways.

• If you join our registry, we will collect your first and last names, postal address, email address and telephone number, and we also ask for age and birthday for member gifts.

• If you make a purchase on our site, we will collect your credit card number, a shipping address and a telephone number for that shipping address, and for any additional information that may be required to personalize the product you purchase.

• If you contact our customer service, we will collect your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, order number and such other information as you wish to submit to us for our assistance.

One goal in collecting personal information from you is to provide efficient, humanized and customized shopping experience. What we want is to:

  1. Help make the Site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
  2. Help you quickly find information, products, and services.
  3. Help us create content that is most relevant to you.
  4. Alert you to new information, products, and services that we offer.

Please be advised that registration is required to make a purchase at this website, post a product review or use certain additional features of this site. Registration also allows us to send you information about our special events and offers, and other information custom-tailored to your needs.

Automatic Information: We use a third party advertising company to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. To help make our information more useful to our visitors, we may collect non-identifying information about your visits to our web site, and about your interaction with our ads. For example, we may keep track of how many of our ads you had seen before visiting our site, how you were directed to our site, how you navigate around it and which products you browse, as well as your purchasing activities. To do this, we use technology such as cookies, action tags, Web Beacons or GIF tags, which we may place at various sections within our web site. We do not collect any personally identifiable information through the use of this technology.

'Cookies' are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that. Our site uses cookies to make sure you are not shown the same content repeatedly, to deliver information that is specific to your interests, and to save your password so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site.

Information from Other Sources: For reasons such as improving personalization of our service (for example, providing product recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.

Other Information: We may also collect certain non-identifying information about visitors to this website, including but not limited to the identity of their Internet browsers, the types of operating systems they use, their locations, and the domain names of their Internet service providers.

INFORMATION USE AND DISCLOSURE

(a) Internal Use. We use your personal information to process your order and provide you with customer service. We may internally use your personal information to improve the Sites' content and layout, to improve outreach and for our own marketing efforts (including marketing our services and products to you), and to determine general marketplace information about visitors to the Site. In order to facilitate such use and the other use described in this Section 2, we may share your information with affiliates under control of FishingSir.com.

(b) Communications with You: We will use your personal information to communicate with you about the Site and your orders and deliveries. Also, we may send you a confirmation email when you register with us. We may send you a service-related announcement on the rare occasions when it is necessary (for example, if we must temporarily suspend our service for maintenance.) Also, you may submit your email address for reasons such as to register for a contest or sweepstakes; to request us to notify you of new brands, new product styles, or product sizes; to sign up for email newsletters and special offers; or to sign up for the FishingSir.com. If you submit your email address, we use it to deliver the information to you. We always permit you to unsubscribe or opt out of future emails (see opt out section, below, for more details). Because we have to communicate with you about orders that you choose to place, you cannot opt out of receiving emails related to your orders.

(c) External Use. We want to provide you with excellent service and to offer you a great selection. We do not sell, rent, trade, license or otherwise disclose your specific personal information or financial information to anyone, except that:

As do most catalog and Internet retailers, we sometimes use others to perform specific functions on our behalf. When we disclose information to these service providers, we disclose information to help them to perform their service. For example, in order to deliver products to you, we must share some information. We partner with third parties (such as DHL, and UPS) to ship products, to ensure delivery, and so that we can obtain feedback, improve the quality of our service, and measure and improve the quality of the service of the third party. In the example of shippers, we provide them some personally identifiable information such as your name, shipping address, email, and phone number.

Similarly, to help you buy products and provide customer service to you, we must provide your credit card number to financial-services corporations such as credit-card processors and issuers. When we submit your credit card number for authorization, we use state-of-the-art data encryption to protect your information. (More on this in the Data Security below)

We may be required to disclose such information in response to requests from law-enforcement officials conducting investigations, subpoenas, a court order, or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We also will release personal information where disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights, enforce our Terms of Use or other agreements, or to protect ourselves or others. For example, we may share information to reduce the risk of fraud or if someone uses or attempts to use our Site for illegal reasons or to commit fraud.

We will not sell (or trade or rent) personally identifiable information to other companies as part of our regular course of business. However, it is possible that we might acquire or merge with or be acquired by another company or that we might dispose of some or all of our assets. If that happens, your personal information may be disclosed to another company, but that disclosure will be subject to the Privacy Notice in effect.

We may share non-personal information (such as the number of daily visitors to a particular web page, or the size of an order placed on a certain date) with third parties such as advertising partners. This information does not directly personally identify you or any user.

We may publicly disclose the name, city, and state of the contest and sweepstakes winners for our special events.

DATA SECURITY

This Site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, including Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") for all financial transactions through this Site. We use SSL encryption to protect your personal information online, and we also take several steps to protect your personal information in our facilities. Access to your personal information is restricted. Only employees who need access to your personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to your personal information. Finally, we rely on third-party service providers for the physical security of some of our computer hardware. We believe that their security procedures are adequate. For example, when you visit the Site, you access servers that are kept in a secure physical environment, behind a locked cage and an electronic firewall.

While we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. 100% complete security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline.

OPT OUT/CORRECTIONS

Upon your request, we will

  • Correct or update your personal information;
  • Stop sending emails to your email address;
  • Disable your account to prevent any future purchases through that account.

You can make these requests at the customer information section of this site, or by telephoning customer service hotline: 1-213-814-3525 (USA), or emailing your request to FishingSir.com's Customer Service Team at [email protected]

Please note that do not email your credit card number or other sensitive information.

OFFLINE COLLECTION, USE & DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

As you might expect from FishingSir.com, the majority of information that we collect is obtained through our Site, and this Privacy Policy applies only to that online collection of personal information. We also may collect information offline, where we also try to protect the privacy of your personal information. One example involves someone calling us to place an order or to ask questions. During the call, we will ask only for the personal information we need in order to place the order or to answer the question. When we need to store information (such as order information), we will enter it into our database through SSL encryption (See the Data Security section above for more information). Another example involves faxes. If you fax something to us, we will act upon the fax and then either store it a locked repository or we will shred the fax if there is no need to retain the information. There are other ways we could learn of personal information offline (for example, we suppose someone could send us a letter including some return address information), and this Policy does not discuss or try to predict all of those methods or uses. As we mentioned, we will try to treat offline collection, uses, and disclosures consistently with our relevant online practices.

UPDATES TO THIS POLICY

If we change or update this Privacy Notice, we will post changes and updates on this Site so that you will always be aware of what information we collect, use, and disclose. We encourage you to review this Privacy Notice from time to time so you will know if the Privacy Notice has been changed or updated. If you have any questions about the Privacy Notice, please contact us.
