HOW WE TREAT ONLINE ADVERTISING

This permits us to show you certain advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests based on information we receive from visitors of our Digital Services and by third-parties. You may also see certain ads though your use of our Digital Services because we participate in advertising networks. Ad networks allow us to target our advertising to users through the use of click-stream, demographic, behavioral and contextual information.

If you are visiting from the European Economic Area or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you may be transferring your Personal Data to the United States, which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU or other countries.

CAN SPAM ACT

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:

  • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions
  • Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders.

CALIFORNIA ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.
  • Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website.
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can easily be found on the page specified above.

YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING THE ACCURACY OF PERSONAL DATA

We take various steps to ensure the accuracy and completeness of your Personal Data but rely upon you to provide accurate and complete Personal Data when interacting with us. You may also have the legal right, for example if you are using Our Digital Services from the EU, to request:  (i) Obtain from us confirmation as to whether or not we process Personal Data from you and, where that is the case, access to your Personal Data; (ii) Rectification of inaccurate Personal Data; (iii) Erasure of Personal Data; (iv) Objection to the processing of Personal Data; (v) Restriction of processing of Personal Data; and (vi) Portability of Personal Data – receive the Personal Data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable form and transmit those data it to another entity. Additionally, in cases when our processing of your Personal Data is based on your consent, you may withdraw consent at any time for the future. Please note that withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before the withdrawal. Any requests should be submitted to the email address listed at the end of this privacy policy. If you’re an EU citizen, resident, or use our Digital Services from the EU, you have the right to file a complaint with an EU supervisory authority if you believe we are not handling your Personal Data in compliance with the applicable law. We do ask that you work with us directly as the primary method to rectify any issues as we take these matters seriously.

PERSONAL DATA RETENTION POLICY

Several considerations factor into determining how long we keep Personal Data. We consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. Once we no longer have a need for your Personal Data, we will securely destroy it in accordance with our standards and applicable laws and regulations.

We will attempt to honor requests to delete your Personal Data, but please note that we may be required to keep such information for legal purposes and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives. We may also retain your information for fraud or similar purposes.

PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION

As a matter of policy, we maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to assist us in protecting the Personal Data we collect against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.  Our websites are scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible, we use regular Malware Scanning.

In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order, enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information. All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. We cannot guarantee that the security measures we have in place to safeguard Personal Data will never be defeated or fail, or that those measures will always be sufficient or effective.

COPPA (CHILDREN ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old, nor so we knowingly collect Personal Information from them.

PRIVACY POLICY ENFORCEMENT

Our policy is to respond to all written inquiries or complaints in a timely manner by contacting the individual directly with the goal to resolve any concerns. In cases where a resolution can’t be reached between Enos Digital and the individual, we make it a practice to cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, which may include local data protection authorities.  

PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES

When we need to make changes to our privacy policy, we will do so without prejudice to your rights under applicable law.
