If you purchase a product from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (including name, telephone number, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number and its expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to fulfill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you. While making a purchase from SmoochBag.com, you are given the option to create a username and password. This user name and password functionality offers our customers the ability to quickly and easily proceed through the check out process on repeat visits. We do not store your credit card information as part of this optional service.
SmoochBag.com gathers navigational information about where our visitors go on our website and information about the technical efficiencies of our website and services. This information allows us to see which areas of SmoochBag.com are most visited and helps us to better understand our Guests’ experience at SmoochBag.com. In the process of gathering navigational information, non-personally identifiable information (i.e. browser version, service provider and IP address) may be collected which will provide information regarding a visitor’s use of our web site (such as the time of a visitor’s last visit to a page on our web site).
If you opt into our email list the information you provide (for example, name, email address, country, gender) will be added to a database. SmoochBag.com may use that information for our own internal marketing purposes. You may opt out of this list at any time, by logging into your account or clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any promotional email.
If you are under the age of 13, you are not permitted to submit any personal information to SmoochBag.com. SmoochBag.com is intended for users who are 13 years of age and older. We do not knowingly collect information from individuals under the age of 13. If a parent, guardian or anyone else becomes aware of personal information we have collected from an individual under the age of 13, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have made every effort to ensure that the information transmitted to us online is secure through the use of a secure server. With respect to online sales, the person whose name appears on the card must be the one who places the order. SmoochBag.com uses secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption for securing communications and transactions across the Internet. The SSL protocol uses digital certificates to create and secure confidential communications “pip” between the purchaser and our web entity. Data transmitted over an SSL connection is designed to prevent tampering without the two parties becoming immediately aware of the tampering. A key or padlock icon in the lower corner of the browser window identifies the security mode of a browser. When the browser is running in “normal” mode, the key looks broken or the padlock looks open. Once an SSL connection has been established, the key becomes whole, or the padlock becomes closed, indicating that the browser is in “secure” mode. SSL is supported in the vast majority of browsers, which means that almost anyone with a browser can benefit from SSL encryption. In addition, it is our policy not to send your credit card number via email. In fact, this is a practice we recommend you adopt in all of your internet activities.
