Ironies Web Services Privacy and Security Statement
June 1, 2007
Ironies respects your privacy. Web servers are generally capable of collecting, storing, and analyzing a variety of information about those who visit the site. Our goal is to keep all information collected at this website confidential and secure and to use it only for purposes for which it was intended or to improve the quality of the web service we provide. To inform you of our policies, we provide the following detailed information about our data collection processes.
In some cases, Ironies contracts with commercial services for specific web services, generally related to web site hosting, financial transactions, and links to partner sites for those transactions. If you are redirected to another site, something other than “ironies.com” in the URL, privacy and security are governed by the policies of those services and are documented by those sites. We do attempt to ensure that those policies conform to Ironies’ policies, as outlined below.
What information does Ironies collect on its Web site?
We collect personal information (such as name, address, phone, e-mail address) only if you provide it to us voluntarily through e-mail, registration forms, information request forms or surveys, or otherwise. Personal information is kept confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties except as may be required by law. Credit card information and social security numbers are only collected for specific purposes where the information is required for the transaction, such as payment for your purchases or shipping. Any information of that nature is saved on our secure server and is only accessible to authorized employees to process payments or for other legitimate purposes. Once processed, the information is deleted from the server. Credit card information collected via commercial services offered by Wells Fargo, Paypal, Verisign, or other financial service providers is not stored on our server. (See below.)
Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual’s computer hard drive for recordkeeping purposes. Official Ironies web pages will not issue "cookies" to anyone who visits those web pages, except for the purpose of remembering log-in information or user preferences. Cookies will never store private information but will only reference such information elsewhere. In those cases, cookies are used only to record security keys with limited lifetimes for your convenience in accessing other secured pages.
Our web server software automatically logs the following information each time someone visits our website: date, time, Client IP, Server IP, web browser, URLs of page requested and referring page, among others. We use the information gathered to help us improve our website.
What does Ironies do with the personal information collected on this Web site?
Ironies does not distribute personal information about web site visitors or web site account holders to anyone for any reason, except as provided by law or in connection with a legitimate payment. Ironies employees authorized to manage personal information submitted by web site visitors may use this information to contact you in regard to a sale or other business-related matters.
What does Ironies do to safeguard personal information on this site?
We have instituted safeguards to check that our internal procedures meet our high policy standards. Only authorized employees have access to the information you provide us.
Internet communication security in general
The privacy of communication over the Internet cannot be guaranteed because the Internet is not a secure medium. Ironies does not assume any responsibility for any harm, loss or damage you may experience or incur by the sending of personal or confidential information over the Internet by or to Ironies.
What should I do if I have questions?
