What information does Charleston Critters™ collect and why:
We collect information you provide when you place an order (register with us), send us an e-mail, or call us (enter a sweepstakes or enroll in a club or service). This information may include:
Your mailing address
Your e-mail address
Your phone number
Your credit card number
There are two types of information collected by Charleston Critters™. The first is information which is voluntarily supplied by people who visit our website. The second is tracking information that is gathered as visitors use our site. As to the first category, we may collect personal information such as name, address, and phone number so we may put you on a mailing list and keep you updated on what we believe would be of value to you. Supplying this information is voluntary. We use this information to provide for our customer base in ways we believe will serve them better. Charleston Critters™ will only share this data with Charleston Critters™ retailers for the sole purpose of Charleston Critters™ products and events. This information will not be sold to others for purposes other than promoting Charleston Critters™ products or events. You may remove your personal information from our system by contacting us and asking for such a removal.
We share personal computer information with trusted service providers and contractors for limited purposes. Those purposes may be fulfilling customer orders, offering products and services in connection, or finishing credit card transactions. These third parties are not allowed to use this information.
We may also store certain information on your computer, such as in the form of a "cookie", which is a standard browser feature. The cookie does not provide or access personal information, only information about the computer that is accessing the site. Without the cookie we cannot personally identify you. In this way we can tailor our website to the needs of our customers and website visitors. With most browsers, cookies can be erased or blocked.
Additionally, the computers that host our website collect information about your computer's connection to the internet including your IP address. This does not provide any personal information, only information about your computer. We use this information to send information upon request, and similar to the information gathered by the cookies, adjust our website to the needs of our customers. Please note that we may be required by law to disclose such information, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena to disclose information in response to a request by a law enforcement agency.
