We told you we spent a fortune on lawyer language and we weren’t lying. All of these fancy words to say we won’t share your information, visitor history, or anything else about you with anyone else, no matter how nicely they ask.
What Information About Me Is Collected and Stored?
We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Website: personally identifiable information (“PII”) and non-personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information is any information that can individually identify you and includes your name and contact information, such as your e-mail address, telephone number, or postal address. Non-personally identifiable information includes information that does not personally identify you, but it may be linkable to you. Examples of non-personally identifiable information include device identifiers, IP addresses, demographic information and general location information. If non-personally identifiable information is directly linked to personally identifiable information, it will be considered personally identifiable information while it is linked. Aggregate and de-identified information is not considered personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information
As a general matter, you can browse the Website without submitting your personally identifiable information to us. However, there are a number of circumstances in which you may supply us with your personally identifiable information. The following lists the most common ways in which we may collect your personally identifiable information.
– Purchasing something from our store
– Requests for information or other assistance, inquiries and other communications to us
– Participation in surveys, special events and promotions
– Sign up to receive e-mail newsletters or email alerts from us
– Participation on social media accounts involving Company, our Website and our brands
– Any other place on the Website where you knowingly volunteer personally identifiable information
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information From or Through Social Media Portal
When you interact with any Mowellens™ property page or account on a social media platform, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or LinkedIn, we may collect the personally identifiable information that you make available to us on that page or account including your account ID or “handle.” However, we will comply with the privacy policies of the corresponding social media platform and we will only collect and store such personally identifiable information that we are permitted to collect by these social media platforms. If you choose to link to or access the Website with or through a social networking service, Mowellens™ and that service may share certain information about you and your activities. With your consent, we also may share information about your activities, including what you view on the Website, with that social network’s users.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
In addition, when you interact with the Website, we may collect certain information that does not identify you individually and our servers may automatically keep an activity log of your use of our Website (“non-personally identifiable information” or “non-PII”). Generally, we collect and store the following categories of non-personally identifiable information:
– Demographic data such as age, gender, and five digit zip code as part of collecting personally identifiable information.
– Device information about your computer, mobile device, or other device that you use to access the Website. This information may include IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information.
– Usage information about your use of the Website. This information includes, among other things, a history of the pages you view. We use this information to provide you a more customized experience on the Sites.
– Additional “traffic data” such as time of access, date of access, software crash reports, session identification number, access times, and referring website addresses.
– Aggregate data regarding the use of the Website.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information Through Surveys
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but, if you prefer, you can usually modify your browser setting to disable or reject cookies.

We may also use web beacons or flash cookies.

We do not share or provide personally identifiable information we may collect through such web beacons, such as names, e-mail addresses and phone numbers without your express permission.
We may also use “Web Storage” to store data about your use of our Website. Web Storage is a feature in some browsers that permits websites to store data within your browser rather within a cookie. This should make this data more secure and make your browser perform better. We do not share or provide PII we may store in Web Storage, such as names, e-mail addresses and phone numbers without your express permission.

What Steps Are Taken To Keep Personally Identifiable Information Secure?
We are concerned about ensuring the security of your personally identifiable information and take reasonable security measures to protect such information. Please understand, however, that while we try our best to safeguard your personally identifiable information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
You need to help protect the privacy of your own information. You must take precautions to protect the security of any personally identifiable information that you may transmit over any home networks, wireless routers, wireless (WiFi) networks or similar devices by using encryption and other techniques to prevent unauthorized persons from intercepting or receiving any of your personally identifiable information. You are responsible for the security of your information when using unencrypted, open access or otherwise unsecured networks.
If you provide us with your credit card information during the payment process, we send it to our PCI-DSS compliant payment gateway for processing using SSL encryption technology. Your credit card information is never stored for use beyond your current transaction.
All direct payment gateways comply with the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and our payment processors and service providers.
How Long Do We Keep Personally Identifiable Information?
The time period for which we keep information varies according to what the information is used for. In some cases, there are legal requirements to keep data for a minimum period. Unless there is a specific legal requirement for us to keep the information, we will retain it for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the data was collected or for which it is to be further processed.
