Wolf & Shepherd Privacy Policy

-----

Wolf & Shepherd, Inc. (“W&S”, “us”, “we” or “our”) is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of Personal Information we may collect. W&S has created this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to advise you about our information practices, such as the types of information we collect and how we may use that information, and to inform you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you. We urge you to read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your Personal Information and how we will treat it.  By visiting any part of our Websites (as defined below) or otherwise providing W&S with Personal Information by any means, you accept and agree to the practices described in this Privacy Policy and your continued use of the Websites (following the posting of a revised privacy policy) means that you accept and agree to the terms of the revised privacy policy, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

Individuals in the European Union (“EU”) should be sure to read the important information provided below, in addition to the other provisions in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from wolfandshepherd.com (the “Site”).

 

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information”.

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

- “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

- “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

- “Web beacons”, “tags”, and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

- “Embedded Scripts” are programming code designed to collect information about your interactions with the Websites, such as the links you click. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our web server or a third party service provider, and is active only while you are connected to the Websites.

- “Flash LSOS” - When we post videos, third parties may use local shared objects, known as “flash cookies,” to store your preferences for volume control or to personalize certain video features.

Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (last 4 digits of credit card or Paypal account name or Amazon pay account name), email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information”.

DIRECT INTERACTIONS. You may give us your Identity, Demographic, Contact, Financial, Profile, or Marketing and Communications Information by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by mail, phone, email, or otherwise. This includes Personal Information you provide when you:

  • purchase our products or services;
  • create an account on our Websites;
  • subscribe to emails or newsletters;
  • request services or other information;
  • enter a competition, promotion or survey; or
  • give us feedback about products, services, or the Websites.

 

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.

OUR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION

We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Order Information to:

- Communicate with you;

- Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud;

- When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services;

- For compliance fraud prevention and safety, including enforcing our terms of service and this Privacy Policy, protecting our rights privacy, safety, or property and/or that of you or others, and protecting against, investigating or deterring fraudulent, harmful, unauthorized, unethical or illegal activity;

to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us;

 

- To notify you about changes to our service;

 

- To comply with applicable laws, lawful requests, and legal process, such as to respond to subpoenas or requests from government authorities;

 

- To contact you with regard to your use of the Websites and, in our discretion, changes to the Websites policies or functionality; and

 

- To perform other functions as described at the time of collection, with your consent, or as further described in this Privacy Policy.

 

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).

If you are a California resident, California law permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of your personal information by Wolf & Shepherd to third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes within the immediately preceding calendar year. Wolf & Shepherd will provide you with a list of the categories of personal information disclosed and a list of the names and addresses of the third parties.  To make such a request, please tell us your preference by contracting us as indicated in the “CONTACT US” section of this Policy.

 

If you do not agree to OUR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION above, we cannot do business with you or accept online orders for products or services. Your continued use of our website, or purchase of products or services constitutes your acceptance of this Policy.
