Shoes Train currently collects little personal information, but you may actively and passively transmit some data when you use some products or services, when you visit Shoes Train pages or the pages of certain Shoes Train partners. Information obtained from business partners or other companies may be used by those partners for customization and sales processing.
When you register with our partners they may ask for information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, industry, and personal interests. For shipping of products the may also ask for your address. Once you register with them and sign in to their services, you are not anonymous to them.
Shoes Train automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, Shoes Train cookie information, and the page you request.
Shoes Train uses information to customize the content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
Our partners may collect information from you in several different ways on their websites.
Before using certain parts of our partnerís site or ordering products, you must complete an online registration form. During registration, you will be prompted to provide to us certain personal information, including but not limited to your name, shipping and billing address, phone number, email address, and credit card number. In addition, our partners may also ask you for your country of residence and/or your organization's country of operation, so our partners may can comply with applicable laws and regulations, and for your gender. These kinds of personal information are used for billing purposes, to fulfill your orders, to communicate with you about your order and our site, and for internal marketing purposes. If our partners may encounter a problem when processing your order, our partners may use the personal information to contact you.
Several locations of the Site permit you to enter your email address for purposes including but not limited to: to register for a free shoe giveaway; to request us to notify you when our partners may receive a new brand, new product style, or product size; to sign up for our email newsletter and special offers; or to sign up for the Our partners Shoe Digest. Your participation in a contest is completely voluntary, so you have a choice whether to participate and disclose information to us. Our partners may use this information to notify contest winners and to award prizes. Our partners may post on our Site the names and cities of contest winners.
Like many sites, our partnerís site employs cookies and our partnerís beacons (also known as clear GIF technology or "action tags") to speed your navigation of the Site, recognize you and your access privileges, and track your Site usage.
Our partners may use third-party advertising companies to help us tailor site content to users or to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and our partnerís beacons to measure advertising effectiveness (such as which our partnerís pages are visited or what products are purchased and in what amount). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and our partnerís beacons is not linked to any personal information collected by us.
As is true of most our partnerís sites, the Site server automatically recognizes the Internet URL from which you access this Site. Our partners may also log your Internet protocol ("IP") address, Internet service provider, and date/time stamp for system administration, order verification, internal marketing, and system troubleshooting purposes. (An IP address may indicate the location of your computer on the Internet.)
Our partners may respect children's privacy. Our partners may do not knowingly or intentionally collect personal information from children under age 13. Elsewhere on this Site, you have represented and warranted that you are either 18 years of age or using the Site with the supervision of a parent or guardian. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information to us, and rely on a parent or guardian to assist you.
Our partners may use your personal information to process your order and provide you with customer service. Our partners may internally use your personal information to improve our Site's content and layout, to improve our outreach and marketing efforts (including marketing our services and products to you), and to determine general marketplace information about visitors to this Site.
Our partners may will use your personal information to communicate with you about our site and your orders and deliveries. Also, our partners may send you a confirmation email when you register with us. Our partners may send you a service-related announcement on the rare occasions when it is necessary (for example, if our partners may must temporarily suspend our service for maintenance.) Also, you may submit your email address for reasons such as to register for a free shoe giveaway; to request us to notify you when our partners may receive a new brand, new product style, or product size; to sign up for our email newsletter and special offers; or to sign up for the Our partners Shoe Digest. If you submit your email address, our partners may use it to deliver the information to you. Our partners may always permit you to unsubscribe or opt out of future emails (see the opt out section, below, for more details). Because our partners may have to communicate with you about orders that you choose to place, you cannot opt out of receiving emails related to your orders.
Our partners may want to provide you with excellent service and to offer you a great selection - our partners may primarily sell merchandise, not information. Our partners may do not sell, rent, trade, license or otherwise disclose your specific personal information or financial information to anyone, except that:
As do most catalog and Internet retailers, our partners may sometimes use others to perform specific functions on our behalf. When our partners may disclose information to these service providers, our partners may disclose information to help them to perform their service. For example, in order to deliver products to you, our partners may must share some information. Our partners may partner with third parties (such as the U.S. Postal Service, United Parcel Service, and Federal Express) to ship products, to ensure delivery, and so that our partners may can obtain feedback, improve the quality of our service, and measure and improve the quality of the service of the third party. In the example of shippers, our partners may provide them some personally identifiable information such as your name, shipping address, email, and phone number.
Similarly, to help you buy products and provide customer service to you, our partners may must provide your credit card number to financial-services corporations such as credit-card processors and issuers. When our partners may submit your credit card number for authorization, our partners may use state-of-the-art data encryption to protect your information.
Our partners may share non-personal information (such as the number of daily visitors to a particular our partnerís page, or the size of an order placed on a certain date) with third parties such as advertising partners.
While our partners may use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, our partners cannot guarantee complete security. 100% complete security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline.
