Privacy Statement

Crimson Tate, LLC (“Crimson Tate” or the “Company”) is committed to protecting the privacy of your information and to being transparent about how it handles such information. This Privacy Statement describes Crimson Tate’s information practices.

1. Platforms Covered.

This Privacy Statement covers the information practices of http://www.crimsontate.com and http://shop.crimsontate.com (collectively, the “System”) and explains what information Crimson Tate and its service providers collect from you, the methods of collection, the limited parties with whom they share this information, and your rights in relation to the information collected from you. The Company may use third party service providers (“Third Party Service Providers”) in connection with the System and the System may contain links to other third party websites, applications, or otherwise (“Third Party Links”).  Such Third Party Service Providers and Third Party Links are governed by one or more privacy policies; policies that may be different than Crimson Tate’s. Crimson Tate is not responsible for the information practices or the content of such Third Party Service Providers or Third Party Links. Crimson Tate encourages you to review the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any Third Party Service Provider and Third Party Link.

2. Information Collected.

Crimson Tate collects both Personal Information and Non-Personal Information, as defined below.

“Personal Information” is data or information that can be used to identify or contact a single person. “Non-Personal Information” is data or information in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual.

Crimson Tate offers a variety of services via the System that are collectively referred to as the “Service.” Crimson Tate collects information from individuals who visit the System (“Visitors”), individuals who register to use the Service for purposes including the purchase of items available via the Service (“Users”). Users may be subject to additional terms not included herewith. In the event such other terms and this Privacy Statement conflict, the other terms shall prevail.

Crimson Tate collects information in the following ways:

If you seek additional information about the Service or register to use the Service, you may be asked provide Crimson Tate with contact information, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, and email address (“Contact Information”).

If you purchase products through the Service as a User, Crimson Tate requires you to provide the Company with Contact Information as well as billing information such as billing name and address, credit card information, and other requested information (“Billing Information”). Contact Information and Billing Information are referred to collectively as “Data About Users.” Submitting Contact Information and Billing Information is voluntary, but is required to receive additional information or to become a User.

As you navigate the System, the Company may also collect information through the use of commonly-used information-gathering tools including, but not limited to, cookies and web beacons (“Navigational Information”). Navigational Information includes standard information from your web browser (such as browser type and browser language), your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, the webpage you were visiting before you came to the System, pages of our System that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our System, access times and dates, metadata concerning your data, other statistics, and the other actions you take on the System including, but not limited to, the date/time/event information for log-ins, downloads, and the links clicked.

3. Use of Information Collected.

The Company uses the information it collects to:

Perform the Service requested by you. For example, if you make a purchase via the System, the Company will use the information provided to consummate such transaction.

The Company may also use Data About Users for communication purposes. For example, the Company may use information you provide to contact you to further discuss your interest in Crimson Tate, the Service, and to send you information regarding the Company and its partners, such as information about promotions or events.

Crimson Tate uses credit card information to collect payment for the Service.

Crimson Tate uses Navigational Information to operate and improve the System.

The Company may also use Navigational Information in combination with Data About Users to provide personalized information about the Company.
Crimson Tate also uses the Data About Users to create a “profile”. A profile creates a report of you as a user (a “Profile”), which Crimson Tate can then use to provide tailored information to you and improve the content of the site for you.

Crimson Tate also uses your information to help it develop, deliver, and improve its products, services, content, and advertising.

Crimson Tate may also use your information for its internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve products, services, and customer communications.

4. Web Site Navigational Information.

The Navigational Information is collected by Crimson Tate to help it better understand its interactions with the System. When you access the System and so long as your settings allow, Crimson Tate will use certain technologies including, but not limited to, cookies and web beacons to track your System usage.

Cookies

Crimson Tate uses cookies to make interactions with the System easy and meaningful. When you visit the System, Crimson Tate’s servers send a cookie to your computer. A cookie is a unique, random identifier that is stored on your browser. Standing alone, cookies do not personally identify you, just your web browser. There are two types of cookies: session-based and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during one session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your browser or turn off your computer.

If you have chosen to identify yourself to Crimson Tate, the Company uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the Company to uniquely identify you. Each time you log into the System, a session cookie that is tied to your account is placed in your browser. These session cookies allow the Company to uniquely identify you when you are logged into the System and to process your online transactions and requests. Using the Service is voluntary, but allowing session cookies is required to use the Service.

Crimson Tate uses persistent cookies that only the Company can read and use to identify browsers that have previously visited the System. When you purchase the Service or provide the Company with Personal Information, a unique identifier is assigned you. This unique identifier is associated with a persistent cookie that the Company places on your web browser. The Company is careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. For example, the Company does not store account numbers or passwords in persistent cookies. If you disable your web browser’s ability to accept cookies, you will be able to navigate the System, but you will not be able to successfully use the Service.

Web Beacons

Crimson Tate uses web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Users’ and Visitors’ usage of the System and interaction with emails from the Company. Web beacons are clear electronic images that collect certain types of information received from browser requests, such as the identifying information of the requesting computer, the cookies stored by the requesting computer, the time such browser requests came from the requesting computer, and a description of the type of browser that made such request. For example, Crimson Tate may place web beacons in emails that notify the Company when you click on a link in the email that directs you to the System. Crimson Tate uses web beacons to operate and improve the System and email communications. Crimson Tate may use information from web beacons in combination with Data About Users to provide you with information about the Company and the Service.

IP Addresses

When you visit the System, the Company collects your IP address. An IP address is a unique number linked with the service through which you access the internet. Crimson Tate uses IP addresses to track and aggregate non-personally identifiable information. For example, Crimson Tate uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Users and Visitors navigate the System.

Third Party Cookies

From time-to-time, Crimson Tate engages third parties to track and analyze non-personally identifiable usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit the System and use the Service. Crimson Tate may also use other third-party cookies to track the performance of the Company’s advertisements. Third-party cookies may be disabled through your web browser, but doing so may affect your use of the System. This Privacy Statement does not cover third party cookies use of your information and Crimson Tate makes no representation or warranty as to how such third party uses such information.

Non-Personal Information

The Company may disclose aggregated or otherwise non-identifiable information, like usage statistics, to partners, affiliates, agents, and third parties.

The Company employs a third party service provider which it reasonably understands to provide physical, technological, and administrative security measures in accordance with ordinary industry standards. No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is one hundred percent (100%) secure, however. Therefore, we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, but we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on the System without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with: (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement; or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.

Please be aware that information you provide to us and the data that we index as a result of your use of the Service will be processed in and transferred to the United States and be subject to United States law.
