It is the policy of English Retreads (“ER” or “the Company”) to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while conducting our business (online at www.englishretreads.com or in person).
Like most website operators, ER collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Company’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how the Company’s visitors use its website. From time to time, ER may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
ER also collects potentially-personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. ER does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to the Company’s website choose to interact with the Company in ways that require ER to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the Company gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with English Retreads – by purchasing the company’s products or services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, the Company collects such information only insofar as it is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with English Retreads. The Company does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The Company may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. The Company may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, ER does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
ER discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on the Company’s behalf or to provide services available at the Company’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using ER’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. English Retreads will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, ER discloses potentially-personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when the Company believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Company, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of ER’s website and have supplied your email address, ER may occasionally send you email to tell you about new services, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with English Retreads.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. English Retreads takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
