Notice To California Residents – Your California Privacy Rights:
Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (known as the "Shine the Light" law), California residents have a right to request certain information from each business they patronize regarding that business's disclosures of personal information to third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes. Generally, if a business has disclosed personal information regarding its California customers to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year, the business is required to provide, upon request and free of charge, a list of the names and addresses of all such third parties, together with a list of the categories of personal information that was disclosed. The "Shine The Light" law creates an exception, however, for businesses that adopt and disclose to the public (in their privacy policies) a policy of not sharing personal information for direct marketing purposes without offering their customers choices to prevent such disclosures. These businesses are not obligated to provide the list described above and may respond to requests from California customers by notifying them of their rights to prevent disclosures of personal information for direct marketing purposes and providing a cost- free means of exercising those rights. We qualify for this latter exception. If you are a California resident, you may request an information-sharing disclosure from us by emailing your request to INFO@WILKWEAR.COM. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per California customer during the course of any calendar year and we reserve the right not to respond to requests made by means other than through the contact information provided above.
To help us achieve our goal of providing the highest quality products and services, we use information from our interactions with you and other customers, as well as information from certain third parties. Because we respect your privacy, we have procedures to ensure that your personal information is handled in a responsible manner. We have posted this Privacy Statement on our website to let you know what kind of information we collect, the purposes for which we collect and use the information, how it is handled, with whom it may be shared, and what choices you have regarding our use of your information.
Except where separate privacy terms are specified, this Privacy Statement applies to all information we collect or acquire from and about consumers through all media, channels and platforms, whether online, offline, print, telephonic, mobile, wireless, or otherwise, and whether existing now or in the future, including, without limitation through: (i) WILKWEAR.com, and other websites owned, controlled or operated by us, including mobile versions of these websites; (ii) events and promotions sponsored or hosted by us, whether alone or jointly with others (e.g., sweepstakes, contests, giveaways, sales promotions, athletic events, etc.); and (iii) other data collection, acquisition and marketing channels (e.g., direct mail, paper and phone enrollments, cross-sell programs, loyalty programs, and affiliate marketing).
As we continue to develop our website and take advantage of advances in technology, our Privacy
Statement may change. Please refer to this page frequently for the most up-to-date information.
We go to great lengths to protect your personal information. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the industry-standard encryption technology that ensures safe internet transmission of your personal information. When the letters "http" in the URL change to "https," the "s" indicates you are in a secure area employing SSL; also, your browser may give a pop-up message stating that you're about to enter or leave a secure area. Using a browser that is SSL capable will ensure that your information is encoded/encrypted when it is sent over the internet. Ultimately, if you register an account with our website, your account and personal information is protected by the password you provide when you created your account. Always keep this password and login information private, and never share it with anyone. Also, remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or an Internet café.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet and no data storage can be 100% secure. Consequently, while we endeavor to safeguard your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, we do not warrant or guarantee the absolute security of any personal information you transmit to, from or through our website. We will notify you in the event we become aware of a security breach involving your personal information stored by or for us. By disclosing your email address to us for any reason, you expressly consent to receive electronic notice from us in the event of such a security breach.
To make online shopping faster and easier, you may register and create an account with www.WILKWEAR.com. Using your email address and a password of your choice, you may access your account online at any time to add, delete or change information retained in your account.
If you are using a public computer, we strongly encourage you to close your browser at the conclusion of your session. Your information will still be stored with us but it will not be accessible to anyone else from that computer.
When applicable, we encourage users to create a registered account on our website. The benefit of having a registered account on WILKWEAR.com is having the ability to view past orders, and quickly access your shipping and billing information with a username and password. When you register with us as an online customer, we may ask for additional information in order to improve your customer experience.
The alternative to having a registered account is being a "Guest" visitor. As a "Guest," you do not have access to past orders, or the benefit of storing your billing and shipping information on our site.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
INFORMATION YOU SUBMIT TO US:
We may receive and store any information you submit on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our features. By usage of our website or through registration on our website, you grant us the permission to process your personal data that has been provided to us via the WILKWEAR.COM website in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy Statement. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as processing your order, responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our website, and communicating with you.
Should you decide to register an account with the WILKWEAR website, personal data that we will collect, store and use are the following: name and email address. Additionally, you may have the option of providing your gender, birth date, shipping/billing address, phone number, and other preferences.
Should you place an order, personal data that we will collect, store and use are the following: name, billing address, shipping address, credit card number and expiration date, email address and phone number.
PURPOSES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTION.
We use the information that you provide to us via our website only for the following purposes: processing and fulfilling your order, responding to your requests and your product inquiries, direct marketing, customizing future shopping for you, improving our website, communicating with you and for our financial accounting purposes. Credit card information is used only for payment processing and fraud prevention.
Once you decide to place an order, if you are not a registered customer, you will be given the option to register an account with our website or to place an order as a guest only. If you choose to become a registered customer, your personal information will be saved on our system to facilitate your future
purchases on our website. Also, as a registered customer, you will have the ability to view your order history on our website. On the other hand, if you choose to place the order as a guest only, none of your personal information will be saved by us upon completion of your order except as may be reasonably necessary to document our business activities or as needed for required disclosures.
We will send you an email message to confirm any order that you place at WILKWEAR.com and when such order is shipped. Additionally, we may send you a reminder by email if you have left something in your cart. Finally we may send you an email inviting you to provide a rating and review of any product you purchase at WILKWEAR.com.
Each registered customer has the choice of receiving announcements about our products and special events or promotions from us via postal mail, email and/or text messaging. You will receive promotional postal mail or email messages from us only if you have agreed to receive them by agreement though our website. You will receive promotional text messages from us only if you have agreed to receive them by providing your mobile phone number when you register your account or at checkout.
PURPOSES FOR WHICH PIXEL TAGS AND COOKIES ARE USED:
We use pixel tags and cookies to customize our web pages based upon purchases a visitor has made, to track (in the aggregate and not in terms of individual site visitors) the number of visitors to the site, the paths to the site, activity on the website and purchases, to enable interaction of our website with visitors for purposes such as adding items to a customer’s shopping cart, and to tailor advertisements which appear on other sites a visitor may visit to a visitor’s Web preferences and usage patterns.
We use "pixel tags," (also known as “tracking pixels” or “web beacons”) which are small graphic files that allow us to monitor the use of our website. The use of pixel tags is industry standard technology used by most major web sites. A pixel tag can collect information such as the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears; the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of the page on which the pixel tag appears; the time the page containing the pixel tag was viewed; the type of browser that fetched the pixel tag; and the identification number of any cookie on the computer previously placed by that server. When corresponding with you via HTML capable email, we may use "format sensing" technology, which allows pixel tags to let us know whether you received and opened our email. One of the ways in which we use pixel tags is through a third-party service provider to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. They may collect anonymous (other than the IP address of your computer) information about your visits to our Web site, and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use this information about your visits to this and other Web sites to target advertisements for goods and services. If you would like more information about online marketing practices and to know your choices about not having this information used by our third party service providers, please click www.networkadvertising.org.
A "cookie" is a small data file stored by your web browser on your computer's hard drive. It allows us to recognize your computer (but not specifically who is using it) when you enter our site by associating the identification numbers in the cookie with other customer information you have provided us. That customer information is stored on our secured database. Some cookies will remain on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device for the duration of your browsing session, while others will remain for longer periods of time or will remain unless and until deleted by you. You may be able to configure your browser to accept or reject all or some cookies (other than Flash cookies), or notify you when a cookie (other than a Flash cookie) is set — each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences — however, you must enable cookies from our website in order to use certain functions on our website.
We may also use single pixel images on our website. This technology tells us more about browsing and buying activity within WILKWEAR.com but none of your personal information (name, address, email address, payment information, etc.) will be received or shared with our third party service providers.
Flash cookies cannot be rejected, disabled, turned off, opted out, or deleted in the same way as regular cookies such as HTML cookies. Flash cookies may remain on your computer even after you have rejected, disabled, opted out, or deleted regular cookies.
SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.
Information about our customers is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below.
THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS.
We employ other companies (including our affiliates) and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance (including on- line advertising), providing search results and links, processing credit card payments and providing customer service.
We also may work with third-party companies that use tracking technologies to serve advertisements on our behalf across the internet. These companies may collect information about your visits to our website and your interaction with our advertising and other communications. These third party service providers may have access to customer personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use such information for any purpose other than the function which we have directed them to perform on our behalf. We require such third party service providers to implement and maintain reasonable security measures to safeguard the confidentiality, security and integrity of your personal information.
PROTECTION OF WILKWEAR AND OTHERS.
WITH YOUR CONSENT.
Other than as described in the paragraphs above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information. We will not share your personal information for this purpose without your prior consent.
