What Information Do We Collect About Our Customers?
The information we learn from customers helps us enhance and personalize the Tickle website and the services we offer. We gather the following types of information.
Information You Give Us or Affiliates: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give in any other way (e.g., by telephone), whether directly to myticklespot.com or to affiliates or co-branded companies selling through our website. This may include information you provide when you register as a member, engage in transactions, search, contact customer service, or participate in contests, promotions, surveys, forums, content submissions, chats, bulletin boards, discussion groups, requests for suggestions or other aspects or services offered by us or our affiliates. As a result, you may be supplying us with such information as your name, address, and phone numbers; credit/debit numbers, expiration date and other billing information; people to whom purchases have been shipped, including addresses and phone number; names and e-mail addresses of friends and possible referrals and other people.
We automatically receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, as most websites do, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses Myticklespot.com. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis, and it may include the website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you will go to next, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. Other examples of automatic information we may collect are purchase history, products viewed or searched for, visits to certain pages, page interaction information and the phone number you used to call our toll free number.Information Provided by Third Parties . We may obtain certain information of customers from third parties. This may include updated delivery or address information from carriers, information from third party merchants we share business relationships with and information (including name and email addresses) of possible referrals from customers.
How Do We Use the Information We Collect and Do We Share the Information We Receive?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business. We use information we collect to communicate with you, to process your orders, to provide an enhanced and more personalized interactive shopping experience to facilitate your transactions with our third party marketing partners and to inform you of offers and discounts. We share customer information with third parties only as follows:
Businesses on Myticklespot.com: We may work closely with other businesses (that we don’t own or control) that sell products or services on Myticklespot.com. In some cases, these businesses may operate stores or websites that sell products or services to you directly. In other cases, we operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines jointly with these businesses. We share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.
Third Party Service Providers:
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, including fulfillment, delivery, analysis of data, marketing assistance, the processing of credit card payments, and customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but they are not to use it for other purposes. Promotional Offers: We periodically provide our customers with information about third party products and services we believe will be of interest to you and with opportunities to participate in offers and/or promotions on behalf of other businesses. Your participation in these events may require us to share data with such a business. If you do not want to receive such information or offers, on behalf of third parties or otherwise, please email us at CustomerCare@myticklespot.com. Other Third Parties/Select Partners: From time to time, we might establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we believe are trustworthy and whom we have asked to confirm that their privacy policies are consistent with ours. These are known as our Select Partners. In such cases, we might share and cross-reference information, including personal information about you that will enable such persons or entities to contact you regarding products and services that may be of interest to you. We may also combine your personal information with publicly available information and information we receive from or cross-reference with our Select Partners and others. We use that combined information to enhance and personalize your shopping experience with us, to communicate with you about our products and services that may be of interest to you, and for further promotional purposes.
In order for you to get credit for a referral who joins Tickle, the person whom you refer must enter your email address or a unique password that identifies you as the referrer. Sometimes, we may send emails (in some instances on your behalf) to potential referees. Also, if you were referred to Tickle by an existing member, that member may be notified each time your order qualifies him/her for a credit.
In the event that Tickle, substantially all of its assets, or a line of business of Tickle is acquired, individually identifying information of our members may be one of the assets sold in connection with that transaction, without notice to you or your consent. We will notify users of the website of such a change in ownership or transfer of assets by posting a notice on the website.
In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used. Therefore, you should know that in such event, your personal information may be treated like any other asset of the Company, and sold, transferred or shared with third parties, or used in ways not contemplated or permitted hereunder, without notice to you or your consent.
