PRIVACY POLICY

 

 

 

Last updated: April 21, 2018

 

1.     IN GENERAL

 

PCI (defined below) realizes that in today’s world you care very much about how your personal information is used and shared. Consequently, we take your privacy extremely seriously. This policy (this “Privacy Policy”) applies to your use of the AVANCEBYPCI.COM Website and co-branded versions of the Website located at URLs that resolve to the domain name AVANCEBYPCI.COM (the “Website”).

 

Because we gather certain types of information about our users in order to make their experience with us even more satisfying, we want you to understand what information we collect about you, how we collect it, how that information is used, and how you can control our disclosure of it.

 

By visiting the Website, submitting information, using our services, and/or purchasing our products on the Website, you acknowledge that you accept this current Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions. We advise that you review this Privacy Policy every time you use the Website so you can be sure that you continue to be satisfied with it.

 

In this Privacy Policy, any references to “we,” “us,” “our,” and “PCI” are to PATHWAYS TO CREATIVE INDUSTRIES, P.B.C., a Delaware Public Benefit Corporation with its principal address at 8 The Green, STE B, Dover, DE 19901, selling its products under the brand name of AVANCE BY PCI; and references to “you” or “your” include anyone who uses the Website and/or services and/or purchases products from the Website. In case you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, your sole remedy is to stop using the Website.

2.     WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT

 

Our primary goals in collecting information from you are to provide you with the best experience possible while using the Website and ordering our products. In general, we collect three types of information from you:

a)     information that you provide to us;

b)    information we collect or receive from others; and

c)     information that is derived through automated tracking mechanisms and technology.

 

We collect information from you, when, among other things, you register online, update your account, log-in, shop online, place an order, and/or communicate with us. This information may include, but is not limited to, your contact and payment information, including debit and/or credit information. We may use automated tracking mechanisms to collect information from you and later use that information to make the Website more useful and interesting to you as well as for other purposes related to our operations.

 

Like many other similar websites and businesses, we use automated data collection tools, including Cookies and Web Beacons (both defined below), to collect certain information from use.  

a)     “Cookies” are small data files that are automatically stored on your computer when you visit the Website. Cookies are used to track the pages of the websites you have visited and do not retain any personally identifiable information such as your name, address or any credit/debit card information. There are two types of Cookies: persistent and session (temporary cookies). We may use both types to identify that you have logged in to the Website and to tell us how and when you interact with the Website. We may also use Cookies to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Website and to customize and improve the Website. Unlike persistent Cookies, session Cookies are deleted when you log off from the Website and close your browser. You can easily erase cookies from your device yourself using your browser. You can also choose to disable cookies, or to receive a notification each time a new cookie is sent to your device. However, please note that if you choose to disable cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of all features of the Website. Further, some third-party service providers that we may engage (e.g. third-party advertisers) may also place their own Cookies on your device. Note that this Privacy Policy covers only our use of Cookies and does not include use of Cookies by such third parties.

b)    “Web Beacons” (also known as “clear gifs,” “web bugs” or “pixel tags”) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Website for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with Cookies, to track and measure the performance of the Website, to monitor how many people visit our Website, for retargeting (advertising), and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages.

3.     HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

 

We use your information so we can meet our commitments and provide you with the service you expect and deserve. To this end, we need your information, among others, for the following purposes:

a)     To create your personal account;

b)    To process and deliver your orders;

c)     To be able to send you marketing offers in which you may be interested;

d)    To be able to contact you in the event of any problems or issues with your order;

e)     To enable us to answer your questions or queries;

f)     To be able to analyze your personal data to provide you with relevant marketing offers and information;

g)    To comply with legal requirements; and

h)    To conduct surveys and analyses for research, statistical and product development purposes and achieve other purposes as may, from time to time, be permitted by law.

 

We will only keep your information for as long as necessary to meet our commitments to you unless we are legally required to store your information longer. After this, we will delete your information.

4.     INFORMATION THAT WE SHARE WITH THIRD PARTIES

 

We do not sell your information to third parties. We may, however, share certain information with third parties, e.g. when it is necessary to fulfill an order, for administrative purposes, or when we are required by law. We forward information to third parties to meet our commitments to you. We may also supply your information to third parties for the purposes of credit checks, identity checks, monitoring credit rating and debt collection. Additionally, we will share your data if such sharing is required by law or to protect against potential or suspected fraud. Lastly, we may transfer your information as an asset in connection with a proposed or actual merger or sale (including any transfers made as part of an insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding) involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization, stock sale or other change in control. If you do not want us to share your personal data in these manners, please do not provide it to us.

5.     HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

 

We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. However, as you may already realize, no data transmissions over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you understand that any information that you transfer to us is done at your own risk. Nevertheless, we take appropriate security measures to protect your information against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. We strongly believe that the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.

6.     YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION

 

You can access your personal account to update your personal data. Please note, however, that you are responsible for maintaining the security of your username and password. Consequently, any actions taken while logged into your account will be your responsibility.

7.     MINORS

 

We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under thirteen (13). We do not sell products for purchase by children and all children's products we sell are for purchase by adults only. If you are not eighteen (18) or older, you are not authorized to use the Website.

8.     E-MAIL CHOICE/OPT-OUT

 

If you do not wish to receive e-mail communications from us, you can unsubscribe to them by following the instructions in the e-mails or send an e-mail to us at info@avancebypci.com. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to implement your opt-out requests with no unreasonable delay.

9.     YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

 

California residents may request and obtain from us, once a year, free of charge, a list of third parties, if any, to which we disclosed their information for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year and the categories of information shared with those third parties. If you are a California resident and wish to obtain that information, please e-mail us at info@avancebypci.com.

10.  LINKS
