iStickUp Privacy Policy

Ginormous, LLC dba iStickUp.com (“iStickUp”) is committed to your privacy. This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) relates to information concerning all products, services, web pages and websites offered or provided by iStickUp or any of our subsidiaries or affiliated companies. Our Policy includes obeying all laws and regulations in the United States that relate to any use or disclosure by us of information we obtain from you. Unless an exception is noted in this Policy, we will not trade, sell, or disclose to any third party any personally identifiable information, or “PII” (as defined below), without your consent and we will not disclose or make available any PII to any third parties seeking to market non-iStickUp products without your consent. This Policy explains how we collect and use information (1) from customers who purchase iStickUp services and products (“Customers”) and (2) from visitors to our web sites and from potential customers who have communicated or interacted with iStickUp (“Visitors”). This Policy applies to both the offering of iStickUp products and iStickUp online and offline services.

Collection of Information

iStickUp may collect personally identifiable information, including but not limited to name, telephone number, mailing address, e-mail address, credit card or other payment information and other personal information (collectively, “PII”), from Customers in connection with the sale or marketing of iStickUp products and services. iStickUp may collect PII from Visitors in connection with any visit to our web sites, any communication about our products and services or other transactions or communications with iStickUp. Once iStickUp has processed the applicable payments for a Customer, all credit card and other payment information for that Customer is purged from our system and is no longer stored, transmitted or used in any way by iStickUp.

iStickUp may also collect information that is not personally identifiable regarding usage of our services or our web site (“Non-PII”) from Customers and Visitors. Non-PII may include web site pages viewed, time spent using certain services, demographic data, cookies and other information which does not specifically identify any one individual.

Cookies

“Cookies” are small files containing strings of characters that many web sites place on your computer in order to facilitate and enhance your interaction with that web site. We may use cookies to customize your use of our web sites and for other purposes to make your visit more convenient or to enable us to enhance our service.

You can configure your web browser to stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your computer or to delete them from your computer. If you stop the placement on or delete iStickUp cookies from your computer you may still use our web site, but some of its functionality may be limited.

iStickUp and our advertisers may use clear gifs, web beacons and third party cookies to improve web site performance, provide certain features such as advertising or to track usage anonymously of our web sites and track the online activity of users. We may also use such devices in HTML-based e-mails to track their usage similar to how we track usage of our web sites.

Spyware

“Spyware” means any executable software application that is installed on a user’s computer that covertly gathers and transmits PII over the Internet without the consent of the user. We do not consider cookies and web beacons to be Spyware. Spyware may gather PII, such as credit card or other payment information or e-mail addresses, or may alter the user’s computer settings. We believe that Spyware threatens a computer user’s privacy and the ability to securely communicate or conduct transactions online. Therefore, our internal policies and procedures forbid any iStickUp employee, agent, partner, affiliate or contractor from intentionally deploying or using Spyware on behalf of iStickUp. Any such deployment or use will not be tolerated and will be grounds for dismissal, contract termination and/or other forfeiture.

Use of Information

Unless an exception is noted in this Policy, iStickUp will use PII only (1) to market our products and services to Customers and Visitors, (2) to provide products and services requested by Customers and Visitors, (3) to allow our vendors and service providers to assist iStickUp in the marketing and provision of such products and services to Customers or Visitors, and (4) to facilitate relevant offers from third parties iStickUp believes to be reputable. We will not, however, provide credit card or other payment information to any third party unless it is involved in processing payments for products or services that a Customer has purchased from iStickUp. iStickUp only works with third parties that we believe maintain high standards with respect to protecting privacy and consumer rights.

iStickUp may also use or disclose PII to investigate and help prevent potentially unlawful or fraudulent activities that threaten the integrity of our service, to investigate fraud or violations of our Terms and Conditions, as required by courts or administrative agencies, or in connection with a sale, merger or reorganization of iStickUp’s business.

iStickUp may use Non-PII as described in this Policy, and may disclose Non-PII to third parties.

Security

iStickUp has invested in a variety of security features to make reasonable efforts to protect the privacy of information on our web site. In addition, iStickUp has implemented internal procedures to ensure Customer and Visitor privacy is safeguarded throughout our organization. iStickUp will implement appropriate new policies and acquire appropriate additional security features as new technologies become reasonably available. However, no system can give a 100% guaranty of security, especially a service that relies upon the public Internet. Therefore, you acknowledge the risk that third parties may gain unauthorized access to your information when using our web site.

Privacy of Communications

iStickUp will not view or disclose to any third parties any images, graphics, or other files or information or other communications that Customers or Visitors transmit to iStickUp except as required to ensure proper operation of our web sites and to allow us to provide our products and services as contemplated by our web sites, or as otherwise authorized by law.

Privacy Policy Concerning Minors

iStickUp does not provide products or services for purchase by minors. iStickUp does not knowingly solicit or collect PII from persons under the age of eighteen.

Third Party Web Sites and Services

Our web sites may contain links to other web sites and services not affiliated with or controlled by iStickUp. In addition, other web sites and services may also reference or link to iStickUp. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our web sites, or surf the Internet, and to read the privacy statements of each web site that you visit. We do not endorse, screen or approve, and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of, such other web sites and services.

iStickUp does not assume any liability for the actions of third parties that have been provided with information as permitted by this Policy or that have collected information as permitted by this Policy (such as advertisers using third party cookies).

Opt-out Policy

If you do not want your PII used by iStickUp for any direct marketing purposes, then you may opt-out of such communications by sending an email to opt-out@istickup.com requesting that you be sent no direct marketing information.

However, we are not responsible for removing your PII from the lists of any third party who has previously been provided your information in accordance with this policy. Since iStickUp must use a Customer’s PII in order to provide the Customer with iStickUp products and services, Customers cannot opt-out of all uses of their PII unless they choose not to purchase iStickUp products and services.

Changes to Policy

We reserve the right to modify, add, or remove part or all of this Policy at any time by posting such changes here. You should review this policy regularly for changes, and can easily see if changes have been made by checking the Effective Date below. Your continued use of our web sites following the posting of any changes to this Policy means you accept such changes.

Terms and Conditions

This Policy is subject to the iStickUp Terms and Conditions. Please refer to the Terms of Service regarding certain rights and limitations with respect to your use of iStickUp’s web sites.

Our web sites are maintained and provided in the United States of America. By using our web sites, you authorize the export of your PII to the USA and its storage and use as specified in this Policy.
