Privacy Policy

PAPALINI is committed to protecting your privacy. We hope that you will take the time to read this privacy policy, which explains what information we collect from you and how we use that information. By using our website (including its subdomains) or by purchasing products or services from us, you agree to be bound by this privacy policy. Please check back frequently, as this privacy policy may change from time to time.

What information we collect and how we use it

When you visit our website, PAPALINI collects your IP address, which we use to improve our products and services as well as to help us administer our website and diagnose technical problems. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information that does not personally identify you. To receive our website’s newsletters and/or periodic email notifications with special offers, you only need to leave your email address with us. However, to order from us, you must set up a PAPALINI account by providing us with your name, email address and a chosen password. These constitute your “Account Information”. Account Information also includes any information that you may provide to us in response to customer surveys. When you place an order with us, we will also collect your shipping address and telephone number, billing address, email address, if applicable. This information constitutes your “Order Information”. Order Information is necessary for us both to process your order and notify you of your order status. Order Information also includes any information that you provide us in connection with an order that you later cancel or that is not completed for any reason. We may use your Account Information and Order Information to occasionally notify you about important changes to our website, new PAPALINI features, special PAPALINI offers that you may find useful, or offers from companies with whom we have business relationships. We may also contact you if you have entered one of our contests or sweepstakes, or responded to one of our surveys. Choosing not to receive email newsletters or email notifications from us when you enter a contest or sweepstakes will not affect your chances of winning. If you would prefer not to receive email newsletters or email notifications from us (other than email notifications relating to order processing), simply visit “My Account”.

How we protect your information

To protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control we have implemented security measures at this website.

When you place orders or access your account information, a secure server is employed. All information you input is encrypted by the secure server layer (SSL) before it is sent to us and all the customer data we collect is similarly protected against unauthorized access.

Limited sharing of information

Except as described in this privacy policy, PAPALINI will not share your personal information with third parties unless you have consented to the disclosure or the disclosure is necessary to:

  1. Comply with the law or with legal process, or with requests from law enforcement authorities;
  2. Protect and defend our rights and property;
  3. Protect our customers or users from misuse or unauthorized use of the PAPALINI website; or
  4. Protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public.

PAPALINI may share your personal information with other companies in our corporate group. Also, if PAPALINI is acquired by or merges with another company, PAPALINI may transfer personal information to that company. In such an event, PAPALINI will notify you before your personal data is transferred if this information would become subject to a materially different privacy policy.

PAPALINI may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related website information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information.

Your use of an Application may cause personally identifying information to be publicly disclosed and/or associated with you, even if PAPALINI has not provided such information. Each Application’s privacy policy (and not this privacy policy) will govern information collected by such Application. In addition, PAPALINI may allow you to log in to portions of our website using “Facebook Connect” an Application of Facebook, Inc.

Cookies

The PAPALINI website employs “cookies,” which are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Our cookies enable us both to provide a Shopping Cart and to store your shipping and billing information between visits.

If you have set your browser to reject cookies, you can still use our site, although you may need to re-enter information that would normally be obtained from the cookie.

Our affiliates or advertisers may also use cookies and though PAPALINI encourages anyone who uses cookies to follow appropriate privacy standards and policies, it is not responsible for cookies placed by third parties.

Children’s privacy online

At PAPALINI, we believe that the privacy of children is important.

We do not monitor the age of our user audience except in connection with surveys and contests, and except for age data optionally provided by users who wish to customise their account preferences, However, visitors and users under the age of thirteen (13) should not submit personal identifying information to PAPALINI without the consent of their parent(s) or guardian(s). If a user is under the age of thirteen (13) the user may not, even under the supervision of a parent or guardian, make any submissions of content to PAPALINI or the PAPALINI website.

If you are a parent and want to limit your children’s access to material you believe may be harmful to them, you may want to look into commercially available hardware, software and filtering devices. Relevant information can be found at http://www.safetysurf.com/ and other similar sites.
