By using our Site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence. When you provide us with personal information to enter a Contest or make a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at SayHi@ChangeMint.com.
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you visit our Site, we collect both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information about you. Therefore, the term “information” herein refers to both your personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally identifiable information (or “PII”) refers to information that when either used independently, or with other information, can personally identify you as an individual. We do not collect any PII unless you voluntarily give it to us. Therefore, if you don’t want us to collect any PII, you can simply decide not to give it to us. The PII may collect from you include such data as your name, physical address, email address, etc.
We also collect non-personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”). Non-PII is data in a format that does not support direct association with an individual person. In other words, it doesn’t tell us anything about who you are. Non-PII is collected automatically when you visit our Site.
HOW WE COLLECT PERSONAL (PII) INFORMATION
The following situations are how we may collect PII from you:
Account Creation: When you make a purchase from our online shop, you create an account and we necessarily collect a variety of PII such as your name, address, email address, etc. that we use to complete the sale and provide support.
Your account will require that you create a password for security purposes. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and should take the added step of logging out of your account at the end of each Site session. You may not use another person’s account or password.
VIP Experiences: We conduct various VIP Experience Contests ("Contests") on a recurring basis. You may participate in any Contests, as long as you meet the Contest’s eligibility requirements (“Requirements”) and comply with the Official Rules (“Rules”) of that Contest. As part of your participation, you will be required to provide us with PII such as your name, address, email address, age, etc. This collection of PII is necessary in order for us to administer the Contests.
If you register for, or participate in any ChangMint Contest (become a “Participant”), your participation in the Contest is subject to the Official Rules for the particular Contest (the “Rules”) in which you are a Participant. If any part of this Policy conflicts with or is inconsistent with a statement in the Rules regarding your privacy, the terms of the Rules shall take precedence.
Mailing Lists: You may opt-in to various ChangeMint mailing lists, in which case you will be asked to provide your name and email address at a minimum.
Support Requests: From time-to-time you may need support from us. When you do, we will ask that you provide us with relevant PII, such as name, email address, purchase information, Contest questions, etc. This information will be vital in allowing us to assist you.
HOW WE COLLECT NON-PERSONAL (NON-PII) INFORMATION
Much of the Non-PII we collect is through the use of third-party tracking services, as described below. The primary purpose of these services is to understand how people use our Site so we may provide better service. The following situations are how we may collect Non-PII from you:
You can find out more information about Google Analytics cookies here: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage.
To opt-out of Google Analytics relating to your use of our Sites, you can download and install the Browser Plugin available via this link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Web Beacons: Certain pages on our Site contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third-parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third-party. Web beacons also may be used to track whether you have opened an HTML email. When the email is opened, a part of the code that makes up the HTML page calls a web server to load the web beacon that then generates a record showing that the email has been viewed. Web beacons may also recognize when the email was opened, how many times it was forwarded and which URLs (links within the email) were clicked.
IP Addresses: When you visit and interact with our Site, we and third-parties with whom we have contracted to provide services for us may collect Internet Protocol addresses (“IP Address”), as well as browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. An IP Address is a unique identifier number that certain electronic devices used to identify and to communicate with each other on the Internet; your Internet Service Provider automatically assigns an IP Address to the computer that you are using. We gather this information to track web site visitor movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Our goal in gathering this information is to learn how our customers and the public are using our service. We may use this information to enhance our Site or for other lawful purposes.
Do Not Track: Your browser and other mechanisms may permit you to send do-not-track signals or other similar signals to express your preferences regarding online tracking. To the extent you employ such browser do-not-track signals or other similar mechanisms, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor such requests received by us to the extent we have the capacity and resources to identify and process your request. Due to the potential for rapid and diverse developments of technology in this area, we cannot guarantee that we can process every type of request that exists or may be developed in the future. As noted above, third-parties, such as our advertising partners, may collect data that relates to you. We cannot control third parties' responses to do-not-track signals or other such mechanisms. Third parties' use of data relating to you and responsiveness to do-not-track signals is governed by their respective privacy policies.
WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
Our primary purpose in collecting information about you is to provide you with services or information that you request or to process your payments if you make a purchase. In addition, we may aggregate the PII that you provide with the PII that other users provide in order to conduct research, analysis, or studies for our own purposes (i.e., not related to providing you with specific services), including improving our services and future Contests.
We may also use the information that you provide to us to communicate with you about our current activities, future events and Contests or to notify you about any changes to our services. If you decide that you would no longer like to receive such messages you can opt-out from receiving such emails from us. In order to opt-out you can click on an unsubscribe link provided at the bottom of every commercial e-mail that you receive from us. If you opt-out, you will continue to receive communications from us relating to any payments you make or other services you request or purchase. If you decide at a later time that you would like to receive commercial emails from us, you may be able to re-add yourself to our communication list.
