Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our services, features and content, to administer your Membership (together, the "Service"), and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site.
Personally Identifiable Information
- When you register with us through the Site to become a "Retailer Vendor" or "Designer Vendor" (collectively "New York Shopping Diary Member") we may collect personally identifiable information, including, but not limited to, name, email address, postal address, credit card number, account user name and password ("Personal Information"). Personal Information is information about you that when on its own or in combination with other identifiers can be used to contact or identify you. We use your Personal Information to provide the Service, facilitate your use of the Site and respond to your inquiries.
- We also collect the non-personally identifiable information that you provide as part of registration or through your use of your NewYorkShoppingDiary Account (e.g., without limitation, zip code, shopping preferences, and shopping history) ("Anonymous Demographic Information"). We may combine your Personal Information with this Anonymous Demographic Information or with aggregate information collected from other NewYorkShoppingDiary Users (defined below) to attempt to provide you with a better experience and improve the quality and value of the Service. From time to time, the use of Anonymous Demographic Information will include providing you with targeted advertising as you use the Site such that you can have access to information and products that may be of interest to you.
- We may also use your Personal Information to send you NewYorkShoppingDiary newsletters, promotional materials about other products or services and other information, including information about retailers and designers or affiliates, which may be of interest to you. Where you agree to the terms and conditions of NewYorkShoppingDiary Terms of Service you are given the opportunity to opt-in to the receipt of such information from us in the future. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such information from us, you may follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in the communication or you may also update your registration preferences information. (See "Changing or Deleting Information," below.)
When you visit the Site, whether as a New York Shopping Diary Member or a non-registered user just browsing (collectively "New York Shopping Diary Users"), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type and the domain from which you are visiting. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider (or "ISP"), the IP address will be different every time you log on. We do not use this information to identify you personally. We use it to monitor use of the Site and the Service and for the Site's technical administration.
We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your New York Shopping Diary user name, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to New York Shopping Diary. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is our priority. For more information about phishing, you may want to visit the Federal Trade Commission's website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt127.htm
Information Sharing and Disclosure
New York Shopping Diary Members. Providing your Personal Information and any other information about you via the Site/your feature page, is voluntary and will be visible to other New York Shopping Diary Users (as applicable) and should correlate with the degree of interaction you want to have with the public.
Anonymous Information. We may share Anonymous Demographic Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis and demographic profiling. This information will not contain your Personal Information.
Service Providers. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf or to perform Site-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management and improvement of the Site's features). These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to use it for any other purpose.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. New York Shopping Diary cooperates with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of NewYorkShoppingDiary or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
Changing or Deleting Your Information
All New York Shopping Diary Members may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their registration profile. If you completely delete any such information, then your account may become deactivated. If you would like us to delete your records in our system, please contact us and we will attempt to accommodate your request. See below for privacy contact information.
Security & International Transfer
New York Shopping Diary is very concerned with safeguarding your information. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. New York Shopping Diary transfers Personal Information to the United States and maintains and processes it there and you consent to such transfer.
