PRIVACY POLICY

This is the Privacy Policy for all Web sites owned or operated by [Manic Merch Ltd] (“Manic Merch”), including, without limitation the Web site currently located at [www.manicmerch.com] (collectively, the “Site”), and any and all associated services provided by Manic Merch in connection with the Site (collectively, the “Services”). Among other things, the Services allow content providers (“Merchants”) to sell branded merchandise (“Merchant Services”).

Your privacy is important to us and we have prepared this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, use and protect Personal Information and Non-Personal Information (each, as defined below) when you use the Services and your choices for managing your information preferences. By using the Services, you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy and the Manic Merch Terms of Service [terms] and, if you are a Merchant, the Merchant Terms and Conditions [terms].

  1. Application of Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies solely to Manic Merch and the Manic Merch Services. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected at any Web site or on any services not owned by Manic Merch, including any third party Web site reached through a link on or through the Services. You are responsible for reviewing and understanding the privacy policies (if any) of any such third party. We have no control over, and we assume no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies or practices of any such third party. By using the Services, you release Manic Merch from any claim or liability arising from your use of any such third party Web site or services.

  1. Information You Choose to Submit

We collect information that personally identifies you, such as your name, telephone number, billing and shipping address, credit card number and other payment information, tax identification number, email address and other data which can be reasonably linked to such information (“Personal Information”) only if you choose to share such information with us. For example, you will be required to provide us with certain Personal Information to register with the Site, sign up for certain services available through the Services (such as newsletter communications), create a Merchant account as described in the Merchant Terms and Conditions [Terms], purchase products through the Services, and at other times. The decision to provide this information is optional; however, if you decide not to register or provide such information, you may not be able to use some or all of the features of the Services, including, without limitation, receiving any Royalty due to you under the Merchant Terms and Conditions [Terms] if you are a Merchant, and receiving messages from Manic Merch about your orders or other matters. You may review, correct, update or change your Personal Information, or remove your Personal Information from our direct marketing efforts, at any time by visiting your profile or account page on the Site, or by contacting us at:info@manicmerch.com.

Before sharing yourPersonal Information with others or granting anyone else access to your account, you should be aware that Manic Merch does not and cannot control how anyone else may use your information or account. Personal Information you provide to others may not be protected, kept private or be secure. If you allow someone else to have access to your account, they will have access to your Personal Information, and they may share it with others. You are solely responsible for all use of your account, by yourself or anyone whom you permit to use it. Manic Merch will not be liable for any disclosure or use of PersonalInformation or other information by you or anyone using your account with your permission.

 

From time to time (for example, when you make a purchase), you may be asked whether you would like to join the email list of a Merchant in order to receive information and updates directly from the Merchant. Your decision to submit your email address to a Merchant is optional. If you are a Merchant, you agree not to share any Personal Information you may collect from a user through the Services with any third party and to otherwise treat all such Personal Information in accordance with all applicable terms of this Privacy Policy.

 

  1. Information We Automatically Collect

We automatically collect information that does not reflect or reference an individually identifiable user (“Non-Personal Information”) to help us understand how our users use the Services. Like most Web sites, we automatically collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files may include the IP address of the computer or server that you are using to access the Services, the IP address and/or the URL from the Web site you visited just before you visited our Services, the URL of the page you visit upon leaving the Services, if any, and the type of browser and operating system you are using. This anonymous usage information may be associated with your user name and profile, but we will not disclose the associated information to third parties.

  1. Cookies and Web Beacons

We may use cookies (a small file containing a string of characters that uniquely identifies your Web browser) and Web beacons (an electronic file placed within a Web site that monitors usage). We may use cookies and Web beacons to improve the quality of the Services. Most Web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your Web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, certain features of the Services may not work if you delete or disable cookies. Certain of our Service Providers (defined below) may use cookies and Web beacons in connection with the services they perform on our behalf, including, without limitation, targeted ad serving. [The Site does not respond to Web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time.]

We may work with third party advertising companies which may use information about your visit to the Services in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you on the Services and on third party Web sites. From the Services, these companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your computer or use other technologies such as Web beacons or pixel tags. Our Privacy Policy does not cover any use of information that a third party advertisement serving company may collect from you. For more information about ad cookies and companies that provide users the ability to “opt-out” of the collection of information from such cookies, please click here [link: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp].

  1. How We Use Your Information

We may use Personal Information and Non-Personal Information for internal purposes, such as to process and fulfill your orders, to communicate with you regarding your orders and deliveries, to notify you of new products or services, to send service notifications, to customize the advertising and content you see, to improve the Services, to conduct research, to solicit your feedback and input about the Services and to provide more relevant products, services and advertisements on or through the Services. Such information may be combined with data collected from other sources so that we may further improve the relevance of products, services and advertisements offered on or through the Services.

We will not sell, share or rent Personal Information to third parties, including, without limitation, for direct marketing purposes, and we will not otherwise disclose such information to third parties, without your express permission, as expressly disclosed in this Privacy Policy or to the extent permitted by applicable law.

From time to time, we may establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we believe trustworthy and whom we have asked to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as production and fulfillment, payment processing, hosting and maintenance, data storage and management services and marketing and promotions. We provide our Service Providers with the information reasonably necessary for them to perform these services, which information may include certain Personal Information such as your name and email address. Each Service Provider must agree to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information involved in order to protect your information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. All of Manic Merch’s rules and policies with respect to Service Providers and third party products and services offered on or through the Services shall apply to Merchants, and by using the Merchant Services, Merchants agree to be bound by the same such rules and policies.

We may use, and disclose to third parties, certain Non-Personal Information regarding the Services (e.g., the total number of persons using particular medications, the aggregate number of inquiries from a particular geographic location, etc.). However, such information does not identify you individually.

We may disclose your information with entities controlling, controlled by or under common control with Manic Merch. In certain instances, we may disclose your information when we believe it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities in order to protect Manic Merch or our users, or when we believe that the law or legal process requires such disclosure. For example, we may share information to reduce the risk of fraud or if someone uses or attempts to use the Services for illegal reasons, such as an intellectual property rights violation, or to commit fraud. In addition, in the event that Manic Merch is merged, sold or in the event of a transfer of some or all of our assets, we may disclose or transfer your information in connection with such transaction.

  1. Content on the Site

Please be advised that, whenever you voluntarily submit content to the Site for the purpose of designing, producing, marketing and/or selling your Products on the Merchant Services, as further described in the Merchant Terms and Conditions [Terms], such content can and may be accessed by the public. This means that any person or entity with access to such content can potentially use it for any purpose, and Manic Merch shall not be responsible or liable for the actions of any such persons or entities with respect to the content you submit to the Site.

  1. Security

Information that we collect is stored on servers that Manic Merch manages, using standard security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information in an effort to protect information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through the Services, we cannot and do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit on or through the Services, and you do so at your own risk.

  1. Children’s Privacy Statement

We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our records.

  1. Privacy Policy Changes and Questions

Manic Merch may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Manic Merch will post a copy of the Privacy Policy as changed on the Services. Your continued use of the Services constitutes your agreement to abide by the Privacy Policy as changed. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse shall be to cease using the Services.
