E-mail Information Gathered by Bill’s Machine Service, Inc.
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at BILLSMACHINESVC.COM. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. Examples of the information we gather are collected on this page. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses BILLSMACHINESVC.COM or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of BILLSMACHINESVC.COM on other Web sites.
E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from BILLSMACHINESVC.COM if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please let us know and refrain from visiting BILLSMACHINESVC.COM.
Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
For some e-mails distributed by BILLSMACHINESVC.COM and related entities, specific information on recipient response is collected. For example, we sometimes review how many recipients open and subsequently choose to click through to links provided in an e-mail. We use this information for the purposes of analyzing areas of interest, improving our products and enhancing the usefulness of our website for BILLSMACHINESVC.COM customers and other visitors. Except as otherwise described herein, no specific user information is sold or distributed outside of BILLSMACHINESVC.COM in any manner, although summary data — not releasing specific email addresses or customer names — may be released to third parties.
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described herein and with subsidiaries BILLSMACHINESVC.COM controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.
Specific Examples of Information Collected
Information You Give Us
You provide most such information when you search, buy, post, participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate with customer service. For example, you provide information when you search for a product; place an order through BILLSMACHINESVC.COM and provide us information; communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise; complete a questionnaire; participate in product reviews or other community features. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address, and phone numbers; credit card information; people to whom purchases have been shipped, including addresses and phone number; people (with addresses and phone numbers) listed in shortcut settings; e-mail addresses of people; content of e-mails to us; personal description and financial information.
Information from Other Sources
Examples of information we receive from other sources include updated delivery and address information from our carriers or other third parties, which we use to correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily; account information, purchase or redemption information, and page-view information from some merchants with which we operate co-branded businesses or for which we provide technical, fulfillment, advertising, or other services; search term and search result information from some searches conducted through the Web search features offered by our subsidiaries; search results and links, including paid listings; and credit history information from credit bureaus, which we use to help prevent and detect fraud and to offer certain credit or financial services to some customers.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with affiliated businesses. When we are working with a third party on a transaction, we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.
Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These parties have access to personal information needed to perform their functions.
Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of BILLSMACHINESVC.COM customers on behalf of other businesses. If you do not want to receive such offers, please let us know by emailing email@example.com and we will take your off our lists.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that BILLSMACHINESVC.COM, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of BILLSMACHINESVC.COM and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our terms and conditions and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of BILLSMACHINESVC.COM, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent: Other than as set out herein, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using software which is intended to protect the information you input.
We reveal only the last digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?
Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party Web sites except as provided herein.
BILLSMACHINESVC.COM may also from time to time display personalized third-party advertising based on personal information about customers, such as purchases on BILLSMACHINESVC.COM, visits to BILLSMACHINESVC.COM associated web sites, or use of payment services on other Web sites. Although BILLSMACHINESVC.COM does not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized advertisement meet their criteria to personalize the ad. If you do not want us to use personal information that we gather to allow third parties to personalize advertisements we display to you, please let us know.
