ALPABASA PRIVACY POLICY

 

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

By registering with us, you affirm that you have read this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use and agree to share your Personal Information, as herein defined, and as may be necessary.

 
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.

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 (including Paypal account details, or bank details for direct bank transfer), email address, and phone number.  We refer to this information as “Order Information.”

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

 
USE OF YOUR PERSONAL 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; and
  • Send e-mails, SMS and Push Notifications (in mobile apps) of announcements regarding Products and Services posted in the Site;
  • When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with additional information or advertising relating to our Products and Services; and
  • For assessment, record keeping, market analysis and generation of reports.

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 the 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).

 
SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above.  For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site. You can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here:  https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.  You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here:  https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.

 
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We take extra measures to protect the security of your Personal Information. You can access, modify and update your Personal Information on our Site through your account, which is protected by a password. This password is encrypted. To keep your Personal Information secure, we strongly recommend that you do not share your password with any individual.

Additional measures are in place to ensure the security of your Personal Information. Your Personal Information is stored on a secured server that only selected personnel and contractors of ALPABASA have access to. We encrypt certain sensitive information, such as credit card information, using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure that the information is safe as it is transmitted to us.

We strive to protect the privacy of our users and their Personal Information, but no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We cannot guarantee the complete security of information transmitted to or from the Site, and are not responsible for the actions of third parties that may receive such information.

PRIVACY OF MINORS

We assume that you are an adult and have the legal capacity to enter into valid contracts. As a policy, we do not market our services to minors. When we learn that a minor has provided us personal information, we delete the account and all the minor’s personal information from our system. However, this deletion does not cover information collected in the course of the minor’s use of the Site and does not guarantee that the information provided by a minor was not inadvertently used prior to the deletion.

 
TRACKING LIMITATIONS

Please note that we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.

You have the right to access personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us through the contact information below.

DATA RETENTION

When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain your Order Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.

 
CHANGES

We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. We reserve the right to update, modify, improve or terminate this Privacy Policy at any time. Any modification will be effective immediately upon posting.
