We, Shock Doctor, Inc. (“Shock Doctor”) and all websites owned and operated, have taken commercially reasonable precautions to provide a level of privacy and security appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information we collect from our customers and users. Your personal information will be treated with commercially reasonable levels of safety, security features and confidentiality. Although we use reasonable measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized use or disclosure, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet or stored in our databases.
This Online Privacy and Security Policy describes how United Sports Brands protects your privacy when you use this Site and other related web sites that display this Online Privacy and Security Policy.
YOUR CONSENT TO THIS ONLINE PRIVACY AND SECURITY POLICY
By using the Site, you are agreeing to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Online Privacy and Security Policy. If you do not consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Online Privacy and Security Policy, you may not use our Site.
This Online Privacy and Security Policy may be supplemented or amended from time to time by “Privacy Notices” posted on specific areas of our Site. For example, certain pages of our Site contain Privacy Notices providing details about the personal information we collect on those pages, why we need that information and choices you may have about the ways we use that information.
PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
“Personal information” means information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us.
Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser. We collect information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser (i.e. cookies). Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings. The information provided by your browser does not identify you personally. If, however, you have registered as a Shopper or a Member of our Site (as described below), or if you access our Site by clicking on a link in an e-mail we have sent you, we may link the information provided by your browser to information that identifies you personally.
We use this information primarily to create statistics that help us improve our Site and make them more compatible with the technology used by our visitors. We use these cookies to collect statistical information about the ways visitors use our Site, which pages they visit, which links they use and how long they stay on each page. Cookies are also used for anonymous tracking of interaction with online advertising; for example, to monitor the number of times that a banner ad is displayed and the number of times it is clicked.
We analyze this information in statistical form to better understand our visitors’ interests and needs and to improve the content and functionality of our Site. We may compile and report to third parties (such as advertisers) aggregate statistics about our users in terms of numbers, traffic patterns and related Site(s) information. If you choose not to receive cookies, you may still use most of the features of our website(s), including the ability to purchase items.
Information Collected From Other Sources. We may obtain information about you from other sources, including social networks that you use to connect with us. This information may include name, user name, demographic information, updated address or contact information, interests and publicly-observed data, such as from social media and online activity.
Information We Collect Using Web Beacons. In addition to cookies, we may also use “web beacons” and other web technologies to manage our Site and email. A web beacon is a small bit of computer code that may be used to count how many people visit a web page or tell us whether an email has been opened. We may link the information we collect using web beacons and other web technologies to information that identifies you personally. HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
United Sports Brands takes great pride in having you as a customer and we will take commercially reasonable measures to ensure your privacy as a customer when you visit our Site.
We may use the personal information you provide to us:
- to improve the content, functionality and usability of this Site;
- to better understand your needs and interests;
- for security, credit or fraud prevention purposes; and
- for any other purpose we identify in a specific Privacy Notice.
WITH WHOM WE SHARE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT THROUGH THIS SITE
We may share the personal information we collect through this Site as described below and in any applicable Privacy Notices.
Our Service Providers. We may share personal information collected through our Site with companies and organizations that perform services on our behalf, for example, companies that provide support services to us (such as data storage and web hosting services) or that help us market our products and services. When we share personal information with our third-party service providers, these service providers are required by contract to use the personal information we share with them only to perform services on our behalf and to protect the confidentiality of your personal information.
Business Transfers. Information submitted to our Site is an asset of Untied Sports Brands and/or its affiliates and will become part of our normal business records. Your personal information may be transferred to another company (either an affiliate or an unrelated third party) that has acquired the stock or assets of Shock Doctor, one of our affiliates, or one of our operating divisions, for example, as the result of a sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or liquidation. If such a transfer occurs, the acquiring company’s use of your personal information will still be subject to this Online Privacy and Security Policy and any applicable Privacy Notices.
We take reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information we collect. We will only collect personally identifiable information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve you in view of our legitimate business purposes as set out above, and we will use our best endeavors to maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of the information you have provided us with. For example, our Site uses Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) to encrypt your personal information before it travels over the Internet. SSL technology is the industry standard for secure online transactions. If SSL is enabled, you will see a padlock at the top of your browser and you can click on this to find out more information about the SSL digital certificate registration. You will also notice that when you look at the location (URL) field at the top of the browser, it begins with 'https:' instead of 'http:'. This means that you are in secure mode. Because we use SSL, placing an order online at our Site is just as safe as giving your credit card number over the phone.
In addition, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that third-party business partners to whom we transfer any data will provide sufficient protection of that personal information. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of the data you transmit to the Site(s); any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use reasonable efforts to try to prevent unauthorized access.
In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your Personal Information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and to the extent we have your email address, we may notify you by email.
This Online Privacy and Security Policy was last modified on February 20, 2018 and is effective as of that date.
LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY WEB SITES
United Sports Brands is not directed at nor targeted to children under the age of 13. We do not use our Site to knowingly solicit personal information from or market to children under the age of 13. We request, if you are under the age of 13, do not provide us with any personal information. If we learn that someone under 13 has provided personal information to our Site, we will use reasonable efforts to remove such information from our databases.
