What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect information in three ways: directly from the user, from our web server logs, and through cookies. We use this information primarily to provide you with a personalized internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you fill out a contact form on this website, we will ask you to provide some personal information such as your email address, name, phone number, and state. We only require that you provide your email address. Please do not submit any confidential, proprietary or sensitive personally identifiable information such as your Social Security Number, date of birth, drivers license number, or any financial information such as a credit card or a bank account number. If you do submit such information, you do so at your own risk. We will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission.
What information we collect
When you visit our site, we may track information about your visit and store that information in web server logs. The servers automatically capture and save the information electronically. This includes information such as:
- your IP Address;
- your internet service provider;
- the browser you are using;
- your operating system;
- the date and time of your visit;
- how you got to our website;
- the pages you viewed while you were here;
This information is collected to help us administer our site, analyze its usage, protect the site and its contents and improve your experience.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file (that is seriously lacking in chocolate chips) that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size, or other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to reenter them when you return to the website, or when you browse from one page to another.
How to control cookies?
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
Cookies created by our site
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Data collected to manage your membership
At checkout, we will collect your name, email address, username, and password. This information is used to setup your account for our site. If you are redirected to an offsite payment gateway to complete your payment, we may store this information in a temporary session variable to setup your account when you return to our site.
At checkout, we may also collect your billing address and phone number. This information is used to confirm your credit card. The billing address and phone number are saved by our site to prepopulate the checkout form for future purchases and so we can get in touch with you if needed to discuss your order.
At checkout, we may also collect your credit card number, expiration date, and security code. This information is passed to our payment gateway to process your purchase. The last 4 digits of your credit card number and the expiration date are saved by our site to use for reference and to send you an email if your credit card will expire before the next recurring payment.
Data collected to process purchases from the TFBA Shop
We collect information about you during the checkout process on our store.
While you visit our site, we’ll track:
- Products you’ve viewed: we’ll use this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
- Location, IP address and browser type: we’ll use this for purposes like estimating taxes and shipping
- Shipping address: we’ll ask you to enter this so we can, for instance, estimate shipping before you place an order, and send you the order!
When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:
- Send you information about your account and order
- Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- Process payments and prevent fraud
- Set up your account for our store
- Comply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes
- Improve our store offerings
- Send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them
If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.
We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it.
For example, we will store order information for seven (7) years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.
We will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.
We accept payments through Paypal and Stripe. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to PayPal or to Stripe, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information.
Who we share your data with
The information you provide us is used only by Emery Leach or its affiliates. We do not sell, rent, or lease mailing lists or other user data to others, and we will not make your personal information available to any unaffiliated parties.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
You may contact us by email at email@example.com
How we protect your data
We take certain appropriate data security measures to protect your information from accidental loss and unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not be able to gain access to such information.
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. Contact us via the phone number, contact form, or mailing address on our website at any time. You may also use the unsubscribe link featured on certain communications you receive from us. While we strive to complete the opt-put process immediately, please allow 24-48 hours for a complete unsubscribe.
