  1. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

 

We maintain procedural, technical, and physical safeguards for our online services to help protect against loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of the personal information you provide via our online services. We also ask the service providers that help us deliver our online services to do the same. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our online services. Unfortunately, no transmission of data is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. Therefore, any transmission of personal information to us is made at your own risk. If you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please notify us using the contact details below.

 

Usernames & Passwords

 

It is important that you protect and maintain the security of any account you create and that you notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of any The Shade Room account.  Do not disclose your password to anyone else.

Access and Correction

 

In addition to the functionality provided to you via our online services (such as using “account settings” for registered users), where legally required we provide online visitors with access to their personal information and the ability to review, update and correct it.

Some access requests may be subject to a small fee. To help preserve your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as requiring a password and user ID, and possibly photo ID before granting access to your personal information.  Please contact info@theshaderoom.com for more information about exercising these rights.

 

Data Retention and Deletion

 

We will retain your data for as long as you use our online services and for a reasonable time thereafter.

  1. WHERE YOUR INFORMATION WILL BE USED

 

The Shade Room is based in the United States and may from time to time transfer your personal information to other countries and make it accessible to any of our affiliates and third party service providers internationally. Where the transfer of information is to a country that does not provide an adequate level of information protection, The Shade Room has taken steps to ensure that your personal information receives an appropriate level of protection.

 

If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that information we collect, including personal information, may be transferred to, and processed, stored and used in the United States.  Under United States law, your personal information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in the United States.

 

By using our online services and providing your personal information to us, you understand and agree that your personal information may be sent to other countries including those which do not provide an equivalent level of information protection as the European Economic Area (EEA).

 

 

  1. 10IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS 

Residents of the State of California may request a list of all third parties to which our online service has disclosed certain personal information (as defined by California law) during the preceding year for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes.  If you are a California resident and want such a list, please contact us at The Shade Room, PO Box 88160, Los Angeles, CA, 90009. For all requests, you must put the statement “Your California Privacy Rights” in the body of your request, as well as your name, street address, city, state, and zip code.  In the body of your request, please provide enough information for us to determine if this applies to you.  You need to attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response.  Please note that we will not accept requests via the telephone, email, or by facsimile, and we are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or that do not have complete information.

Do Not Track

California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014) provides that California residents are entitled to know how The Shade Room responds to “Do Not Track” browser settings. The Shade Room does not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.

 

  1. LINKS TO OTHER ONLINE SERVICES

 

Our online services may contain links to third party websites/services for your convenience and/or information (for example, to sites which are provided by our third party vendors).  If you access other online services using the links provided, you may leave The Shade Room’s online services. When you access these other sites, even ones that may contain The Shade Room logo, please understand that the operators of these websites may collect information from you which will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policies and Terms of Use, which may differ from ours. We do not endorse or control the policies or practices of third party websites that we do not control or operate.

 

You should always carefully read the privacy policy of any website you access in order to understand their specific privacy and information usage practices.

 

 

  1. UPDATES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY 

 

From time to time, we may revise this Privacy Policy to reflect industry initiatives, changes in the law or technology, or changes in our practices regarding information collection and use.  If we make material revisions to the way we collect or use your personal information so that we are using it for purposes or sharing data with third parties that you have not consented to, we will provide you with notice of those changes and may do so by either: (1) announcing the change on the home page of our websites or (2) taking other actions as we deem appropriate under the circumstances, including without limitation, posting the revised version of this Privacy Policy online. You agree that we may notify you about material changes in the way we treat personal information by placing a notice on our online services. You should check our online services frequently for updates.

 

You can determine when this Privacy Policy was last revised by referring to the “Last Updated” or similar legend at the top of this page. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective upon posting of the revised Privacy Policy on the Internet, accessible through this site. By continuing to use this online service following such changes, you will be deemed to have agreed to such changes.
