Protecting Your Information
Personal information gathered by The Dark Tickle Company is kept in confidence. We will not sell, rent, or trade the personal information you provide online. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, certain physical, electronic, managerial, and security procedures have been put in place. We safeguard information according to established security standards and procedures such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for protection of data transmissions.
While we strive to protect your personal information, you must also take steps to protect your information. You are urged to take every precaution possible to protect your personal information while you are on the Internet. At a minimum, change your passwords often, using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you are using a secure browser as you surf the Internet.
The Dark Tickle Company may disclose personal information to third parties without your consent in the following situations:
1. As required by law or court order.
2. To cooperate with government authorities in a criminal investigation.
Information Gathered from the Web Site
Two types of information are collected:
1. Personal information you provide to us.
2. Standard web server/visitor traffic information, commonly referred to as ‘aggregate information.’ Web servers normally collect this basic information as part of their web log processes to give insight into overall traffic patterns. We do not track individual user sessions.
The Dark Tickle Company requests personal or ‘individually identifiable’ information when creating your account on the web site or in facilitating an on-line purchase. The information collected may include name, address, billing and delivery information, e-mail address, and credit card information.
When ordering online:
1. For credit card payments we receive an order notification from our secure server via email. We then connect to the secure server and process the order manually.
2. If using PayPal, your payment information is processed securely through the PayPal website.
Personal information is private and confidential. All information is stored in a secure location accessible only by authorized staff.
The Dark Tickle Company may use the personal information you provide to create and maintain accounts; process, fulfill, and follow up on orders; answer your e-mail; and send information you request. We may also use this personal information to provide you with information related to your account and the products or services you purchased from us. If you have subscribed to our mailing list, we may also send you e-mail with information and/or special offers about products and services that may be of interest to you. You are presented with the option of joining our mail list when you create your account. You may turn this option on or off at any time by editing your account profile.
In addition to information provided by our visitors, we use the normal internet tracking tools associated with standard internet protocols and web-based systems. This system information is typically stored in log files and the information is used for aggregate reporting. Aggregate reporting includes total number of visitors, most visited sections, peak traffic times, etc. Log files are simply transaction records web servers maintain. Those logs are used for recording information, such as:
• browser versions
• referring web sites
• top pages requested
• average duration of visit
• total visitor traffic.
We use aggregate information gathered from your visit to better design our web site. This information supplies us with a broad picture of how people use our web site in order to help us better serve our audience.
