Protecting your privacy is important to Zafpens™.
We strive to keep your personal information confidential.
Why We Collect Personal Information Zafpens™ collects and uses your personal information to give you superior customer service, to provide you with convenient access to our products and services, and to make a wider range available to you.
In addition, we use your personal information to keep you up to date on the latest service, special offers, and other information we think you'd like to hear about.
From time to time, we may also use your personal information to contact you in regards to keeping you updated of new Zafpens™ products, artists, designs and special offers.
If you no longer wish to receive these types of email communications you may opt-out at anytime.
Please see the choice/opt-out section below.
If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personal identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders.
If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.
How We Collect Personal Information We collect information about you in several ways. For example, we might ask for your contact information when you correspond with us, call us to make a purchase or request service, or participate in an online survey.
In addition, when you complete your online order, we collect and store the information you provide in a secure database.
To save you time and make our web services even easier to use, some areas of the Zafpens™ website allow you to create a "Zafpens™ User Account" using your personal information.
Here's how it works:
Simply fill out a brief profile:
your name and email address;
then choose a password for security. The system saves your information and assigns you a personal Zafpens™ User Account. Next time you order something from Zafpens™, you can simply enter your email address and password and the system will automatically look up the information it needs.
When We Disclose Personal Information Agents/Service Providers We use other third parties such as a shipping company to fulfill orders, and a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services, an email service provider to send out emails on our behalf and a third party marketing provider to provide broadcast email services for us.
We may use Live Chat to assist you if you have questions while using our site or regarding your order.
These third parties are prohibited from using your personal identifiable information for promotional purposes. We reserve the right to disclose your personal identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
For example, if you purchase a product/service but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
