Screen Our requests for potential risk or fraud

We use the Device Information that We collect to help Us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize Our Website (for example, by generating analytics about how Our customers browse and interact with the Website).

This section remains subject to any restrictions placed by third party vendors.

Any third parties to whom We may disclose Personal Information (identified herein) may have their own privacy policies which describe how they use and disclose your Personal Information. Those policies will govern use, handling and disclosure of your personal information once We have shared it with those third parties as described in this Privacy Policy. If you want to learn more about their privacy practices, We encourage you to visit the websites of those third parties.

Please note that We do not alter Our Website’s data collection and use practices when We see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.

When you provide Us consent to do so (either upon placing a request or through Our normal marketing communications), We will communicate with you through general marketing communications. You must affirmatively opt-in to receive these communications before you receive them.

Regardless of where you live, you may also OPT OUT of these marketing communications at any time by following the instructions provided in any marketing communication you receive. Please note that even if you opt out of receiving marketing communications, you may still receive business related communications, such as transactional emails. When you communicate with Us (via email, phone, through the Website, or otherwise), We may maintain a record of your communication.

When you click on links on Our Website that take you to third party websites, you will be subject to the third parties’ privacy policies. While We support the protection of privacy on the Internet, We cannot be responsible for the actions of any third party websites. We encourage you to read the posted privacy policies of any and every website you visit, whether you are linking from Our Website or browsing on your own.

We strive to maintain internal controls and procedures to ensure that the Information you share with Us is handled in a safe, secure and responsible manner. We have security measures to help protect against loss, unauthorized access and alteration of the information in Our control. We will only disclose such Information to employees and authorized service providers who require such information for the purposes described in this Policy.

Our databases are protected by physical, technical, and procedural measures that restrict access only to authorized persons in accordance with this Policy. Although no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, and We cannot ensure against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or destruction of data, We take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences. Nevertheless, We cannot and do not guarantee that information you post on or transmit to the Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe, such as choosing a strong password and keeping it private, as well as logging out of your user account, and closing your web browser when finished using Our Website on a shared or unsecured device.

You have the right to access personal information We hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right (which you may do at any time), please contact Us through the contact information below. We respond to all requests We receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws. We may ask you to verify your identity in order to help Us respond efficiently to your request.

To request that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted, please send an e-mail to info@goodwishesscarves.org, or submit a request via Our secure online form HERE, or write to Us at: Good Wishes, PO Box 1968, North Bend, WA, 98045, United States.

Please include the nature of your request (request to correct or update to your information or request to have your information deleted), your full name, the email address(es), your shipping billing address if applicable, and your phone number in the event that We need to contact you in regards to your request, including for verification purposes.

Additionally, if you are a European resident We note that We are processing your information in order to fulfill contracts We might have with you (for example if you place an order through the Website), or otherwise to pursue Our legitimate business interests listed above.

Additionally, please note that your information will be transferred outside of Europe, including to the United States. When We transfer your information to the U.S., We will protect it as described in this Privacy Policy. We nevertheless protect information from EU/EEA residents in accordance with applicable law.

If you are a resident of the EU/EEA, you can object to processing of your Personal Information, ask Us to restrict processing of your Personal Information, or request portability of your Personal Information. Again, you can exercise these rights by emailing Us at info@goodwishesscarves.org, by submitting a request via Our secure online form HERE, or writing to Us at: Good Wishes, PO Box 1968, North Bend, WA, 98045, United States.

Similarly, if We have collected and processed your Personal Information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing We conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your Personal Information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about Our collection and use of your Personal Information. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority. Contact details for data protection authorities in the EEA/EU are available HERE.

We retain Personal Information where We have an ongoing legitimate business or legal need to do so. Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, We’ll refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:

Whether We have a legal or contractual need to retain the data.

Whether the data is necessary to provide Our Services.

Whether Users have the ability to access and delete the data within their accounts.

Whether Users would reasonably expect that We would retain the data until they remove it or until their accounts are closed or terminated.

When you place an order through the Website, We will maintain your Order Information for Our records unless and until you ask Us to delete this information. Retaining this Order Information facilitates administration of Our 100% guarantee on Our products and provides the mechanism for processing return and exchange requests and providing replacements and refunds of ordered items.

You have the right to request that your Order Information be deleted in accordance with applicable laws. Individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in this manner will be prevented from returning or exchanging items from deleted orders and prevented from receiving refunds for or replacements of items from deleted orders.

When We have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, We will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then We will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

The Website is not intended for individuals under the age of 18 without the involvement of a parent or guardian. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If We become aware that We have collected personal information from a child under the relevant age without parental consent, We take steps to delete that information.

You have several options when deciding how you can best protect your Information. One option is simply not to volunteer it. This approach would allow you to still visit Our Website and you may decline to submit information through the Website, although it may prevent you from placing orders and prevent Us from providing certain services to you. The Federal Trade Commission’s website, www.ftc.gov, also offers useful information about how to protect personally identifiable information provided to a website.

If at any time you believe We have not adhered to the policies and principles set forth in this Privacy Policy, please notify Us using the contact information provided below. We will make all commercially reasonable efforts to promptly respond to your concerns.

We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to Our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. We suggest that you review the current Privacy Policy at the start of each visit to Our Website. We will also notify you of material changes to this Privacy Policy by posting them to the Website or via email. Unless We clearly express otherwise, We will use Personal Information in accordance with the Privacy Policy then in effect. YOU ARE HEREBY ADVISED THAT YOUR CONTINUED USE OF OUR WEBSITE CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF ANY AMENDMENTS TO AND THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

California law permits Our customers who are California residents to request and obtain from Us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom We have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the types of personal information disclosed to those parties.

If you are a California resident and would like to request this information, please submit your request in an e-mail to info@goodwishesscarves.org, or submit a request via Our secure online form HERE, or write to Us at: Good Wishes, PO Box 1968, North Bend, WA, 98045.
