Your privacy is very important to us. At Vintage Fetish we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Like most website operators, Vintage Fetish collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Vintage Fetish’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Vintage Fetish’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Vintage Fetish may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Vintage Fetish also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the site blog. Vintage Fetish only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Vintage Fetish’s website choose to interact with the site in ways that require Vintage Fetish to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Vintage Fetish gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Vintage Fetish updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Vintage Fetish collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Vintage Fetish. Vintage Fetish does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Vintage Fetish will not knowingly collect information from any person under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, you must not use the site or submit any personal information. Due to the nature of some of our products, you must be 18 or over to use and shop on our Site.
We collect the following information if you choose to give it to us regarding your account registration on our site, and your purchases or general enquiries, when exercising your legal rights or by corresponding with us by email, and is provided by you entirely voluntarily. The information you give to us can include your name, contact details (such as phone number, email address and postal address), enquiry details. There are some circumstances where we need the information (pursuant to our contract with you), for example, where you have placed an order with us, we need to know where to deliver your order and to be able to take payment from you. If you don’t provide us with this information we may not be able to provide our services to you or be able to interact with you in the way you would expect.
