What Information We Collect and How We Use it
When you visit our website, Shopwushu collects your IP address, which we use to improve our products and services as well as to help us administer our website and diagnose problems that may occur with our server. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information that does not personally identify you.
To receive our website's newsletter and/or periodic emails with special offers, you only need to leave your email address with us. However, to order from us, you must set up a Shopwushu account by providing us with your email address and a chosen password. These constitute your "Account Information". Account Information also includes any information that you may provide to us in response to customer surveys.
When you place an order with us, we will also collect your name, shipping address, telephone number, credit card number, billing address, and card expiration date (i.e. your "Order Information"). This information is necessary for us both to process your order and notify you of your order status. Order Information also includes any information that you provide us in connection with an order that you later cancel or that is not completed for any reason.
How We Protect Your Information
To protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control we have implemented security measures at this website.
When you place orders or access your account information, a secure server is employed.
All information you input is encrypted by the secure server layer (SSL) before it is sent to us and all the customer data we collect is similarly protected against unauthorized access.
Shopwushu will not share your personal information with third parties unless you have consented to the disclosure or the disclosure is necessary to:
(1) Comply with the law or with legal process
(2) Protect and defend our rights and property
(3) Protect our customers or users from misuse or unauthorized use of the Shopwushu website, or
(4) Protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public.
Shopwushu may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related website information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. Put simply, while we will not tell our business partners that a particular individual bought a particular product, we may tell them how many customers within certain demographic groups bought certain products.
The Shopwushu website employs "cookies," which are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies enable us both to provide a Shopping Cart and to store your shipping and billing information between visits.
If you have set your browser to reject cookies, you can still use our site, although you may need to re-enter information that would normally be obtained from the cookie.
Children's Privacy Online
At Shopwushu, we believe that the privacy of children is important.
We do not monitor the age of our user audience except in connection with surveys and contests. However, visitors and users under the age of thirteen (13) should not submit personal identifying information to Shopwushu without the consent of their parent(s) or guardian(s).
If you are a parent and want to limit your children's access to material you believe may be harmful to them, you may want to look into commercially available hardware, software and filtering devices. Relevant information can be found at http://www.safetysurf.com and other similar sites.
