Effective Date: January 1, 2019
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your experience on the lonestarcandlesandmore.com website. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web Site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, improving our site, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses Lone Star Candles & More's website or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of Lone Star Candles & More on other Web sites.
E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from Lone Star Candles & More. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please make sure you are not subscribed to our news letter or mailing lists.
Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. For example, you may have taken a survey and indicated you are interested in e-commerce or digital marketing, and we purchased leads from the company you took the survey with, in order to make you aware of our services.
The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer.
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We do not share customer information with any company that is not completely under the control of Lone Star Candles & More.
Third-Party Service Providers: We do employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for any other purpose.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy subsidiaries, or other business entities. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that Lone Star Candles & More, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of Lone Star Candles & More and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Lone Star Candles & More, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
With Your Consent: Other than as set out 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 work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during any order processing.
Please be aware that although we do everything humanly possible to protect any information that we collect, any information transmitted over the Internet can never be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. Always make sure that your browser is up-to-date and that the sites that you connect to have a security certificate in place.
In the future we intend to include third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. For more information about third-party advertising at Lone Star Candles & More, including personalized or interest-based ads, you will be able to read more about our Interest-Based Ads policy when it begins to take shape.
Lone Star Candles & More's main website is currently offering account based services in conjunction with our store at shop.lonestarcandlesandmore.com where you can create an account, or if you join our community here on the main site we will automatically create an account for you on our store so that you may take advantage of all of our services.
Lone Star Candles & More will give you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with Lone Star Candles & More for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. If you create an account here or in the store and are logged in, the list of services will change as our Web site evolves.
