West Coast Lanyards

Privacy Policy

OUR COMMITMENT: RESPECTING AND PROTECTING YOUR PRIVACY

West Coast Lanyards recognizes that the trust of our customers and Web visitors requires vigilant, responsible privacy protections.
We respect and protect the privacy of our customers. As a provider of badge supplies and related products we recognize that we must maintain the confidentiality of every customer's telephone numbers and other account information.
We also respect and protect the privacy of our Web visitors. The expansion of online services and changing technologies continues to create unique privacy concerns and we recognize the need to maintain the confidentiality of information that Web visitors reasonably expect to remain private.

THE SCOPE OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY

This privacy policy addresses the privacy of West Coast Lanyards retail customers and Web visitors in the United States.
This policy identifies the types of data and information we collect, how we use it, how you can control its use and the steps we take to protect it. The primary focus of this policy is non-public information that identifies or that is linked to the identity of a customer or Web visitor ("personal identifying information").

WHAT PERSONAL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION WE COLLECT, HOW WE USE IT AND HOW YOU CAN CONTROL ITS USE

Personal identifying information we collect and use We collect personal identifying information regarding our customers, including information customers give us, information collected as a result of the customer’s relationship with us and information we obtain from other sources. Examples include name; address; e-mail address; telephone number; billing, payment, usage, credit and transaction information (including credit card numbers, account numbers and/or social security number); and demographic information.
We use the personal identifying information of a customer to provide, confirm, change, bill, monitor and resolve problems with the quality of West Coast Lanyards-offered products. We also use the personal identifying information of a customer or Web visitor to develop, market and sell our products and services.

Personal identifying information we disclose to third parties

We do not provide personal identifying information to third parties for the marketing of their products and services. We may provide personal identifying information to third parties who perform functions or services on our behalf. Examples include shipping companies who deliver West Coast Lanyards products; and Web site development or advertising companies, who provide Web design, analysis and advertising services.
When we provide such personal identifying information to third parties to perform such functions or services on our behalf, we require that they protect personal identifying information consistent with this policy and do not allow them to use such information for other purposes. We may, where permitted or required by law, provide personal identifying information to third parties (including credit bureaus or collection agencies) without your consent:
To obtain payment for West Coast Lanyards-offered products and services, enforce or apply our customer agreements, and/or protect our rights or property.
To comply with court orders, subpoenas, or other legal or regulatory requirements.
To notify a responsible governmental entity if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires or justifies disclosure without delay.

Our "Do Not Call" lists

We comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding "Do Not Call" lists. These laws generally permit companies to contact their own customers even though such customers are listed on the federal and, in some instances, state "Do Not Call" lists.
Where required by state laws and/or regulations, we also honor requests from business customers to be removed from our lists.

WHAT ONLINE INFORMATION WE COLLECT, HOW WE USE IT AND HOW YOU CAN CONTROL ITS USE

Web usage information we collect and use

When Web visitors access our Web sites we automatically receive certain "Web usage" information. For example, our Web servers automatically collect the visitor's IP address, the visitor's Web browser and operating system types, and the identity of the Web page from which the visitor's browser entered our Web site. In addition, primarily through the use of cookies or Web beacons, we may collect other Web usage information, such as the Web pages the browser visits on our Web sites, the amount of time spent on such Web pages and whether the browser re-visits our Web sites/pages. We use Web usage information to facilitate and enable the functioning of our Web sites and to expand and improve our Web visitors' online experience. We may also aggregate such Web usage information with other visitors' Web usage information to assess trends and better design, monitor and otherwise improve our Web sites, as well as to focus our marketing efforts.
In some cases we may combine Web usage information related to your access to our Web sites with personal identifying information. We use the combined information to provide our customers and Web visitors with a better online experience by providing customized features and services and to market and provide advertising about goods and services that may be of particular interest. Once combined, the resulting data is protected as personal identifying information as described in this policy.

How we use cookies, Web beacons, etc.

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that a Web server sends to your computer when you visit a Web site. Cookies can contain a variety of information, such as a simple count of how often you visit a Web site or information that allows us to customize our Web site for your use. Web beacons (also known as "clear gifs" or "one-pixel gifs") are small graphic images on a Web page or in an e-mail that allow us to monitor the activity on our Web sites or to make cookies more effective.
We, or a third party acting on our behalf, may use "cookies" to tailor and improve the content we deliver to our Web visitors, to improve our Web sites by assessing which areas, features, and products are most popular, and to personalize our Web sites and make recommendations based on information, including product choices, a particular visitor has previously provided. For example, we may use a cookie to identify your state so we do not ask you to enter it more than once. We also use cookies to store user preferences, complete online order activity and keep track of transactions. We, or a third party acting on our behalf, may use Web beacons in certain of our Web pages and e-mails to gauge the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns and e-mail correspondence. For example, we may use Web beacons in our HTML-based e-mails to let us know which e-mails have been opened by the recipients. You can configure your Web browser to alert you when a Web site is attempting to send a cookie to your computer and allow you to accept or refuse the cookie. You can also set your browser to disable the capacity to receive cookies or you can delete cookies previously accepted. Some West Coast Lanyard Web pages (and other Web pages) may not work correctly if you have cookies disabled.

Our e-mail marketing practices

We periodically send customers news and updates via e-mail regarding West Coast Lanyards offered services, products, and special promotions. Every marketing e-mail we send contains instructions and an opt-out link that will allow you to stop additional West Coast Lanyards marketing e-mails based on line of business.
We do not provide your e-mail address to third parties for the marketing of third-party products without your consent.

Our policy on online access by children

West Coast Lanyards Web sites are not designed to attract children under the age of 13. We do not target children for the collection of information online and do not knowingly collect personal identifying information from anyone under the age of 18. Ordering online products and services from West Coast Lanyards is limited to adults (age 18 or over or as otherwise legally defined). We comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which requires the consent of a parent or guardian for the collection of personally identifiable information from children under 13.

Linking to other sites

Our Web sites may provide links to third party sites. We are not responsible for the privacy, security or content of such sites. If you are asked to provide information on one of these Web sites, we encourage you carefully to review their privacy policy before sharing your information.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

All West Coast Lanyards employees are subject to the West Coast Lanyards Code of Business Conduct and certain state-mandated codes of conduct. The West Coast Lanyards Code requires all our employees to follow every law, rule, regulation, court and/or commission order that applies to our business at all times. In addition, the Code specifically requires compliance with legal requirements and company policies related to the privacy of communications and the security and privacy of customer records. Employees who fail to meet any of the standards embodied in the Code of Business Conduct may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal.
We employ security measures designed to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data, including personal identifying information. We have implemented technology and security features and strict policy guidelines to safeguard the privacy of your personal identifying information, and we will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available. For example: We maintain and protect the security of our servers and we typically require user names and passwords to access sensitive data. We use industry standard encryption methods to protect your data transmission unless you authorize unencrypted transmission. We limit access to personal identifying information to those employees, contractors, and agents who need access to such information to operate, develop, or improve our services and products.
If we determine that a security breach has occurred and that such breach creates a risk of identity theft or service disruption, we will make reasonable attempts to notify you.

PRIVACY POLICY UPDATES

This privacy policy supersedes and replaces all previously posted privacy policies. We want you to be aware of the information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to update this privacy policy to reflect any changes we make in order to continue to serve the best interests of our customers and Web visitors and will timely post those changes. If we make a material change to this privacy policy, we will post a prominent notice on our Web sites.
If we intend, however, to use personal identifying information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection, we will attempt to notify you at least 30 days in advance using an address or e-mail address, if you have provided one, and by posting a prominent notice on our Web sites, and you will be given a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner.
Please periodically check our Web sites for changes to this privacy policy.
