Collection of Information
If you are simply visiting www.familiesoftheworld.com, you are not required to provide any personal information without placing an order. With respect to the collection of the information pertinent to ordering a product, we do not have any legal duty to verify the accuracy of any personal information that you provide to us through our website.
We may collect and process the following personally identifiable information about you:
We may collect information about your computer, including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
Use of Information
We will use your personal information only to contact you in regards to the specific purpose for which you submitted that information.
We may use your data to provide you with information about goods and services which may be of interest to you, and we may contact you about these by mail, e-mail or telephone. If you are an existing customer we may contact you by electronic means without additional consent with information about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale to you unless you request that we do not do so.
You will always have the opportunity to opt out of providing information or to request that we amend your data or remove it from our records by contacting us. If you so choose, you will still be able to access and use our website.
Disclosure of Information
We will not sell, rent or lease your personal information without your consent.
If you have consented for us to do so, we may also share your data with selected third parties so that they may provide you with information about their goods and services which may be of interest to you.
We will not collect or compile personally identifying information for third parties for their unsolicited marketing activities or for consumer marketing initiatives.
Unless we have specifically informed you, obtained your consent, or are permitted or required to do so by the laws of the jurisdiction we operate in, we will only share the personal information you provide to us with affiliates, business partners or third-party service providers who are acting on our behalf, and then only for the uses described in this policy. We will attempt to take appropriate steps to ensure that our affiliates, business partners and service providers adequately protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information.
Personal information collected by Families of the World may be transferred globally to our offices, affiliates, business partners or third-party service providers who are established in jurisdictions without comprehensive data protection laws. Where such transfers occur, Families of the World will attempt to ensure that the policies set forth in this statement continue to abide.
The only other circumstance in which we would disclose your personally identifiable information would be if we are required to do so by law through a subpoena, search warrant, court order or other legal process. In such cases, we will make a good faith effort to provide only information that is the subject of the official order or request.
