Introduction

The Bring Back Thrift Week (BBTW) website is committed to safeguarding your personal identifying information while giving you the most benefit from visiting our website. As part of our normal operations, we collect and, in some cases, disclose information about you. Please read the following policy to understand what information we collect, how we will treat this information and what options you have to direct our activities.

By using this website, you agree to the terms of our Privacy Policy.

1. Information Collected

We automatically track certain information about you based upon your use of our site. We use this information for internal research on our users' demographics, interests and behavior to better understand and serve our users. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), which URL you go to next (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, your IP address and what searches you perform in our service. This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis.

If you send us personal correspondence, such as e-mails or letters we may collect such information into a file specific to you.

2. Use of Your Information

We use personal identifying information about you internally to improve our content and product offerings, to customize our site's content, layout and services, and to improve our marketing and promotional efforts. We believe these uses allow us to improve our site and services to better meet your needs. We may also use your information to deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interests, such as new services, promotions and targeted advertisements.

We may also use information in the file we maintain about you, and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on our site, to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our User Agreements.

3. Disclosure of Collected Data

We do not share your personal information.

Legal Requests. We may decide or be required to disclose information to law enforcement and other government authorities or third parties under certain circumstances. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government authorities as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, infringement of intellectual property rights, third party lawsuits, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability.

Unauthorized Access to Your Information. Although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, third parties may intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Therefore, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal identifying information or private communications will remain private in all cases.

4. A Special Note About Children

If you are under the age of thirteen (13), you are not eligible to subscribe to the BBTW service.

5. A Special Note About Non-U.S. Subscribers

If you are a non-U.S. citizen, by subscribing to BBTW or by providing any personal identifying information as a non-subscriber, you explicitly grant us the right to transfer that information to the United States.

6. Other Information Collectors

Except as expressly discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Our website may contain links to other websites for your convenience. To the extent that you disclose information to other parties, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. Since BBTW does not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of that third party. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

7. Security

BBTW uses industry standard efforts to safeguard your personal identifying information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers (SSL). However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.

8. Changes to This Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you by posting them here.
