At Uye Surana, your privacy is important and we take it seriously. We’re committed to only using policies and procedures that help us serve you better as you use our website while protecting your privacy and security. To do that, we invite you to read this page to get a better understanding of what information we might collect from you, how we use any information we receive, and how we protect it. We also would like you to understand your options to control its use, though we do need to gather certain information (as described here) in order to offer you some of our products and services. We re-evaluate these processes and update this page on a regular basis to ensure that you’re informed and to ensure that we’re crafting the most secure, effective, and safe experience possible for you while you shop with us.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, please send us an email at email@example.com — we are happy to help you.
By using our website, you (the visitor) agree to allow third parties to process your IP address, in order to determine your location for the purpose of currency conversion. You also agree to have that currency stored in a session cookie in your browser (a temporary cookie which gets automatically removed when you close your browser). We do this in order for the selected currency to remain selected and consistent when browsing our website so that the prices can convert to your (the visitor) local currency.
All payments to Uye Surana are processed securely through Shopify Payments, PayPal, or Afterpay. Any payment information entered on our site is secure. We do not store or have access to view your full payment details, credit card number, or full billing information. When you enter this information to complete a payment, it is not visible to Uye Surana or associated with your person — the payment is securely processed by Shopify Payments, PayPal or Afterpay and not stored or accessed by us after processing.
Like many web sites, we automatically track certain information when people visit our site. However, most of this data is anonymized and not linked to any other information we collect about you. This automatic browsing information simply helps us understand how people like you are using and experiencing our website, and allows us to improve, modify, and enhance your experience as one of our customers or a user of our website. The kind of information we collect for this purpose might include things like your browser type, what pages or content on our website get clicked on, what search terms visitors make, or IP addresses. Again, this data is anonymous and we don’t link it to other information about you.
Third Party Stipulations
We may use some third-party companies to help provide certain services to you. For example, the payment processing companies listed above may help us bill you for any items your purchase from us. An email service provider (Mailchimp) may send out emails that you’ve consented to receive from us on our behalf, or other providers might help track web traffic to improve our services, advertising materials, and products in accordance with our audiences’ interests and experience with our site. Any information received by any such party is not used to personally identify you. These parties are only authorized by us to use any of this information in order to support us in providing our services to you — processing your orders, sending out emails you’ve requested we send you, improving your experience of of our website, advertising, or marketing materials, etc. We do not authorize any of these companies to use this information for any other purpose but providing these services to you on our behalf. We don’t share your information with others for any other reason except as outlined in this policy.
Cookies & Pixel GIFs
We and our service providers sometimes may use “clear GIFs” or “pixel tags” to help us perform some administrative tasks — mostly measuring web traffic and making our web advertising & email marketing campaigns more effective and interesting for our users. A pixel GIF is an electronic image that’s the size of a single pixel — 1x1 — that doesn’t visibly appear when you visit our site. They allow us to assess general trends, like which pages of our website are being visited by users frequently, or whether a marketing email recipient has opened our emails recently. We & any service providers we use (such as MailChimp, Google Analytics, or Adroll) collect information like this to better tailor any promotional materials or advertising campaigns to your experience, or track general trends of how people are using and interacting with our website and promotional materials.
Any information collected in this way is not used to personally identify you, nor do we combine it with any other data to associate it with you specifically — it merely is used to track general behaviors so we can update our site and advertising/marketing campaigns to better reflect our audiences’ needs and interests, and to track your activity to help ensure you see content that is more relevant to you. You are absolutely free to restrict the usage of this information to help us serve you interest-tailored ads, and you may opt-out of receiving this specific type of ad by visiting NAI here. However, please note that this does not opt you out of receiving advertising in general — you’ll merely receive generic ads, instead of ones we’ve created to better fit your experience.
