Automated Collection of Information

To help us serve your needs better, we use cookies and other technology to automatically store and sometimes track your non-Personal Information, which may include, among other things, the IP address (Internet Protocol address) of your computer, smartphone or other device, identification number or location, searches you have made through our Services, the URLs and website pages you’ve visited, sections of or content or Services on which you click, the number of times you visit a page of our Site, when emails are opened or links are clicked, how long you spent on a portion of our Site, and information about your computing device, browser or operating system type.

A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A website can use cookies to recognize repeat users or track web usage behavior. Cookies work by assigning a number to the user that has no meaning outside of the assigning website. If you do not want information to be collected through the use of cookies, your browser allows you to deny or accept the use of cookies. There may, however, be some features of the Services which require the use of cookies in order to customize the delivery of information to you. We cannot control the use of cookies (or the resulting information) by third-parties. The use of third party cookies is not covered by our Privacy Policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies.

We may also use web beacons to access our cookies. A web beacon is an electronic file on a Web page that allows us to count users who have visited that page and to recognize users by accessing our cookies. Further, a web beacon can be used in HTML-formatted email to determine responses to our communications and measure their effectiveness. You can avoid web beacons by turning off HTML display and displaying only the text portion of your email. You can learn more about cookies and non-cookie tracking technologies, including how to opt out of accepting cookies, by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative.

SpeedBrackets does not track users across websites or applications operated by third parties (“Third Party Websites”), and therefore does not use or respond to "do not track" (“DNT”) signals in your web browser. However, some Third Party Websites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, certain website browsers allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.

We may participate in behavioral-based advertising. This means that a third party may place a cookie on your browser, or use a web beacon, to collect information about your use of our Site so that they can provide advertising about products and services tailored to your interest. That advertising may appear either on our Site, or on other websites. If you would like to opt-out from having the behavioral-based advertising companies with whom we have a relationship use your information for advertising purposes you can do so by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative or Digital Advertising Alliance.

We may also use services hosted by third parties, such as Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), to assist in providing the Services. Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyze how users use the Services. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Site (including your IP address) will be transmitted to, and stored by, Google on their servers. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Services, compiling reports on Site activity for us and providing other services relating to Site activity and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Services. By using the Services, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

These third parties may have access to your Personal Information, but only to the extent needed to perform these tasks on our behalf, and we will contractually require them to protect and safeguard your Personal Information to at least the same extent that we do under this Privacy Policy. If you choose to purchase merchandise, products or services, on or through features on the Service, we may forward your information to third parties for services such as credit card or other payment processing, order fulfillment, credit pre-authorization, and address verification. There are also times when you provide information about yourself to us in areas of the Service that may be managed or participated in by third parties. In such cases, the information may be used by us and by such third parties, each pursuant to its own policies. We may also provide your information to our advertisers, so that they can serve ads to you that meet your needs or match your interests. While we will seek to require such third parties to follow appropriate privacy policies and will not authorize them to use this information except for the express purpose for which it is provided, we do not bear any responsibility for any actions or policies of third parties.

Aggregated Data

We may aggregate your Personal Information with information of other users and/or de-identify your Personal Information in a manner that such information can no longer be used to identify you, and may also collect and create aggregated usage and log data collected from users of the Services that does not contain Personal Information (collectively, the “Anonymized Data”). We may use and share Anonymized Data for any business purposes, including sharing it with our business partners, affiliates and service providers.

Law Enforcement

SpeedBrackets cooperates with government and law enforcement officials, agencies and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials, agencies or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal processes (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of SpeedBrackets or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, an illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.

We recommend that you use unique numbers, letters and special characters in your password and not disclose your password to anyone. If you do share your password or Personal Information with others, you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify SpeedBrackets at privacy@speedbrackets.com and change your password.

In addition, we have procedures that limit SpeedBrackets’ employees and contractors’ access to Personal Information. Only those employees and contractors with a business reason to know have access to such information. We educate our employees about the importance of confidentiality and customer privacy through standard operating procedures, mandatory training programs, and internal policies on data privacy and corporate integrity. We take appropriate disciplinary measures to enforce employee privacy responsibilities.

We do not currently have any Services which require you to provide us with credit card information, but may in the future. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We will not store your complete credit card information on our servers, but will only use an incomplete identifier (e.g., last four digits of your credit card number) to identify your account. Any complete credit card information you choose to store in connection with your account will be stored by our third party payment processing service providers.
