At Styloot, we take your privacy very seriously.
Below you will find our policy.Effective February 2012
As used in this policy, the terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, Application, services, features and content, to administer your membership (together, the “Service”) and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site and Application.
We use your Personal Information mainly to improve the service in the following ways (this is a non-exhaustive, indicative list):
To personalise user experience : We may use information in the aggregate to understand how our Users as a group use the services and resources provided on our Site.
To improve our site : We continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you.
To improve customer service : Your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs.
To process transactions : We may use the information Users provide about themselves when placing an order only to provide service to that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide the service.
To administer content, promotion, survey or other Site features.
To send Users information they agreed to receive about topics we think will be of interest to them.
To send periodic emails : The email address Users provide for order processing, will only be used to send them information and updates pertaining to their order. It may also be used to respond to their inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.
We will create your Account for your use of the Site and Application based upon the Personal Information you provide and you will become a Member of Styloot. In order to deliver the improvements and Service outlined above:
We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your profile webpage on Styloot (e.g., without limitation, age and individual preferences) (“Non-Identifying Information”).
We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, complete your transactions, and administer your inquiries.
Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your viewing preferences). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Styloot Users (defined below) to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Service and to analyze and understand how our Site, Application and Service are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions.
We also use your Personal Information to contact you with Styloot newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications

We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site and Application meet the criteria required to process their requests. [We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.

Where Members have selected the option of adding one or more email addresses to an online form, the message they create in the corresponding template will be sent from Styloot to those email addresses on their behalf. These email addresses will be used only for the purpose of sending the email communication to the addressee.
Styloot Users. When you register through the Site and Application and submit Personal Information to create a profile or visual collection, Styloot Users will see your name.
