Privacy Statement for www.clubscrapcommunity.com
The web site www.clubscrapcommunity.com is owned and operated by Club Scrap® Inc. Because Club Scrap® is committed to protecting your privacy, we have created this Privacy Statement to disclose our information and privacy practices. The purpose of this statement is to notify you of:
Club Scrap® Inc. is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.
Club Scrap® Inc. collects information from our users at several different points on our website: Membership Registration, GHM! Orders, Member Account Updates, Guestbook, and Suggestion Box.
Our site uses both session and non-session cookies. Session cookies are used to keep track of your GHM! code and your shopping cart. These cookies expire after 2 days of inactivity. Session cookies are also used to run internal processes to insure that your visit is a smooth and simple one - for example we use session cookies to make sure you don't skip a checkout page.
Our site also uses non-session cookies to keep track of your visits to our site for traffic reporting purposes. No personally identifiable information is ever stored in a non-session cookie; these cookies are intended only to track demographic and reporting information such as if you are a new or returning visitor, your country of origin, how you found our site (for example, a search engine), etc. This information from non-session cookies can only be viewed by Club Scrap® on an aggregate basis; there is no procedure available to access any individual information from non-session cookies.
Since cookies are required by many of our data-exchange functions (online ordering, account updates, etc.), if you decide not to accept cookies from the Club Scrap® site, you will be limited to browsing our site. You will not be able to successfully make a purchase or submit other types of information to us through the site. You may choose to contact us by telephone or mail to complete these types of transactions.
You are not required to register or be a Club Scrap® member to use this site, but you will be required to submit information upon placing an order. If you do join or place an order, you will be asked for contact information (such as name, telephone number, mailing and email address).
This information is used to process your Club Scrap® membership and/or to fill your order. We may also use this information to contact you in the future about our products and services. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.
Becoming a Member and Placing an Order
Our site uses secure forms for a customer to request information, order products, and become a member. If a visitor should choose to perform one of these actions, we may collect his or her contact information (such as name, address, telephone number, email address), financial information (such as bank account or credit card numbers), and demographic information (such as birth date and how they heard about Club Scrap®).
Contact information is used to fulfill any requests the visitor has made, such as placing an order, joining Club Scrap®, signing the Guestbook, or updating account information. The customer's contact information is used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for any requested products and services. Demographic information is used to track our own marketing strategies and may be used to screen customers that will receive special items or offers.
We use IP addresses, platform type, referring urls, and date/time stamp to analyze trends, administer the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We do on occasion share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. We share only percentage breakdowns of our customers and members. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
We process and ship our own orders, including credit card processing.
This site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Club Scrap® is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. We encourage users to be aware when they leave the www.clubscrapcommunity.com site and to read the privacy policies of the sites they visit. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this web site.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. When users submit sensitive and/or personal information via this website, their information is protected both on and off-line.
When any form on our site asks for personal or sensitive information (such as name, address, telephone or credit card information), that information is encrypted and protected with the best encryption software in the industry: Secure Socket Layer, or SSL for short.
While on a secure page, such as our registration or checkout forms, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer will "close" or become locked, indicating that the page is secure. Unsecured pages will be indicated by a lock in the "open" or unlocked position.
We also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All user information, including sensitive information, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need this information to perform specific duties (such as member service representatives and order fulfillment personnel) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our databases are backed up on a regular basis and are not accessible from outside phone or data communication lines.
Our site provides users the opportunity to receive communications from us. If you wish to remove your nformation from our database in order to not receive future communications or to no longer continue your membership, you can contact us in one of the following ways:
Notification of Changes
If we are going to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify you via email. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. However, if you have opted out of communication with the site then you will not be contacted, nor will your personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post the notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
