1. General

Welcome to "Shop Genius" (hereinafter, "Shop Genius", "We", "Us", or "Our"). We believe that electronic privacy is crucial for the ongoing success of the Internet as a service, commercial, and entertainment medium. We know you're concerned about protecting your privacy online. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect about you and how we use that information. By using any of Our Services (as defined below), you agree to be bound by all of the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy for all of Our Services.

We receive your information through Our websites, SMS, APIs, email notifications, applications, buttons, widgets, ads, and other commerce services offered by Us from time to time (collectively, the "Services") and from Our affiliates, partners and other third parties. For example, you send Us information when you use Our Services on the web. When using any of Our Services you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, disclosure, and use of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

2. Information Collection and Use

SHOP GENIUS collects and uses your contact information to carry out the transactions you have requested and to communicate with you through various media. We may send certain communications such as letters, event reminders and information on SHOP GENIUS business transactions and personnel, and/or transaction-related data. We use a variety of third-party services to help provide Our Services, such as hosting our various Services, and to help Us understand and improve the use of Our Services. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address. Third-party ad partners may share information with us, like a browser cookie ID, website URL visited, mobile device ID, or cryptographic hash of a common account identifier (such as a phone number or email address), to help Us measure and tailor ads. We may also receive information about you from Our corporate affiliates in order to help provide, understand, and improve our Services and Our affiliates' services, including the delivery of ads.

We may ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, password, name, work address or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code. We may collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with Our site. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Web site addresses.

When you receive newsletters or promotional e-mail from Us, We may use web beacons, customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or other information.

In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with Us, information collected through Our site may be combined with information obtained through other sites operated by Us, or partners, or our affiliates. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other companies.

4. Sharing of Your Information

  • we may sell or transfer personal information to third parties for any legally permissible purpose at our sole discretion; and
  • we may share your information with third parties with your consent or direction to do so. Please note that these third parties may be in other countries where the laws on processing personal information may be less stringent than in your country. We reserve the right to use, disclose and transfer non-personal information to our partners, advertisers and other third parties at our discretion.

Personal information collected on Our site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which We, our parent company, affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using Our site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

6. Security of Your Information

SHOP GENIUS is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. If a password is used to help protect your contact information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.

7. Use of Cookies

Our site may use "cookies" to enable you to sign in to our services and to help personalize your online experience.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.

Our site may use cookies to store your preferences and other information on your computer in order to save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information and to display your personalized content and appropriate advertising on your later visits to these sites.

8. Law and Harm

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Policy, We may preserve or disclose your information if We believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect SHOP GENIUS's rights or property. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party's, including a government's, request to disclose your information.

9. Business Transfers

In the event that SHOP GENIUS is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction, and, if SHOP GENIUS seeks to sell and transfer your information as part of that transaction, you are deemed to consent to such sale and transfer of your information as part of such transaction. This Privacy Policy will apply to your information as sold or transferred.
