Privacy Policy

SID WAINER & SON recognizes the importance of your privacy, and we are committed to respecting that privacy and recognizing your need for appropriate protection and management of personal information you share with us.

Information We Collect

SID WAINER & SON collects information from you at various points on our web site such as your name, phone number, shipping/billing address, email address, IP address, and when necessary credit card and other personal information in order to facilitate your order and/or service you. We may also collect information such as your IP address to analyze buyer trends and also maintain a record of your product purchases.

Supplying us with your personal information is entirely your own choice, however, if you choose not to provide us with the information, we will be unable to process your order online. In general, you can visit any of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.

Using the Information We Collect

The information you provide is used for internal purposes such as processing your credit card, processing your order, tracking you current and previous orders, contacting you with questions regarding your order, improving our services, analyzing trends and statistics, informing you of new products and specials, and providing you with other information on our company. Although unlikely, under certain instances, we may feel we need to disclose your personal information, such as when we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be causing injury to you, to Sid Wainer & Son brands or to others. Also, when the law requires it, we may also disclose your personal information.

You may also, at any time, request to be removed from our email list, call list, special offers and services announcements, product updates, and/or newsletters. Please note that it may take up to ten days for your email request and 6-8 weeks to process your postal mail request to remove or update your personal information. Also, many times promotions are in process months in advance and the mailing list is already in progress, so you may receive a few additional marketing pieces prior to complete shut off. If you opt out of receiving marketing email, we will continue to send you emails regarding order confirmation and shipment notification when you place an order with us.

Security

SID WAINER & SON takes precautions to protect the security of the personal information that you share with us. We use encryption technologies when transferring the data from you through our web site. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our web sites, and you do so at your own risk.

We urge you to keep your password in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also, to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or Internet café, remember to log off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit.

Notification of Policy Changes

If we decide to amend our privacy policy in whole or in part, we will post a notice on our web site. Those changes will go into effect on the date the notice is posted. The new policy will apply to all current and past users of our web site and will replace any prior policies that may be inconsistent. We encourage you to review our privacy policy periodically because by visiting our website you agree to accept any such changes. This policy was posted in May 2008.
