For those individuals who visit our site but do not make a purchase, we collect and store IP (“Internet Protocol”) addresses during the visit. No individualized information is collected, and the IP address is not traced to a particular individual. Similarly, we collect information, using that IP address, about the navigational or browsing activities of our visitors. Again, that information is not tied to any name or other personally identifying information but is used solely to provide generalized demographic data, such as what geographic areas our visitors are from and visitor browsing patterns. For those who make a purchase on FireandIce.com, in order to fulfill the order, we collect and store your name, address, shipping information, e-mail address, telephone number, purchase data, and billing information.
Fire & Ice will use the information referenced above to fulfill your order and provide services related to FireandIce.com or the operation of our business. Examples of these services include payment processing and authorization, fraud protection and credit risk reduction, product customization, order fulfillment and shipping, web site evaluation, data analysis and, where applicable, data cleansing.
In addition to using the information referenced above to fulfill your purchase order, we also retain some of that information in our customer database. We use that information to track your order, to respond to your inquiries and to make subsequent purchases you wish to make easier and faster. We also may use that information, from time to time, to contact you concerning our products, services, sales or special promotions of FireandIce.com or Fire & Ice, Inc. We try to limit those contacts to ones that might be of interest to you.
We currently send e-mails only to those Fire & Ice and FireandIce.com customers who are interested in receiving information about our products and services. If you have previously received such e-mails, but no longer want to, please follow the unsubscribe instruction included with our emails.
Please be advised that since promotions may already be in process at the time of your request, it may take up to ten days before electronic contacts cease. As a result, you may receive mail or other solicitations from Fire & Ice for a brief period of time after you make your request.
In fact, we will release specific information about you only if we are compelled to do so to comply with valid legal processes such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order, or a valid administrative request from a law enforcement agency, or in the unlikely situation where we, in good faith, believe such information is necessary to prevent harm to you or others. We use secure server technology to keep your personal information – including your billing and account information – as secure as possible. Your ordering information is encrypted using a Thawte Certificate from Verisign. Once your information is stored on our database, we have database security technologies and procedures in place to protect it from access by unauthorized employees or third parties.
Our site is not directed or marketed to children under the age of 18. We do not intentionally collect or store information on children. If we learn that a child has made a purchase from FireandIce.com without his or her parent’s consent, we immediately, upon parental request, void the sale and refund any monies collected upon the return of the merchandise.
We may change or enhance our policy to improve our service to you. You are welcome to refer to this policy each time you are considering making a purchase.
