TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT.
We use the information gathered to better understand your needs, to improve the contents of our web pages and to monitor technical performance of our network. The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by users to the Site through optional registration for the waitlist; and (2) other information gathered as users navigate through the Site.
Information You Provide To Us.
We may collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that you voluntarily supply either while using our Site or in responding via email in connection with a feature provided on our Site. Some examples of this type of information include demographic information and personal information (such as your name, address, phone number, country of residence, or email address) that you electronically submit to us for purposes such as registering for the waitlist, opening an account, writing reviews, signing up for email newsletters, subscribing to a mailing list, or obtaining customer support. We may also ask for information (including a credit card number and shipping and billing address) from users who make a purchase or conduct other transactions on our Site. The information supplied helps us to provide the product requested, offer you more personalized features, and tailor the Site to your interests. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. However, if you choose not to supply information requested, we will be unable to provide you with the services or product offered to users of the Site.
Cookies and Other Information.
Like other websites, we also may collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate through our Site. For example, we employ a standard feature of browser software called a “cookie” to assign each user a unique, random number that resides on a user’s computer. The cookie does not personally identify the user; it merely identifies the computer with which the user accesses the Site. Unless a user voluntarily identifies himself or herself (through registration, for example), the Site will not be able to ascertain the identity of the user, even if a cookie is assigned to a user’s computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information supplied by a user. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you have entered preference information previously. Of course, you are free to set your web browser to disable cookies or otherwise limit the information we collect; however, if you do so it may render your computer unable to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users of the Site. Cookies allow us to provide better security on the Site, to customize the Site’s content, to track orders and purchases, and to make a shopping cart work properly.
We also may use web beacons and other methods to access cookies and to count users who visit our Site or open our HTML-formatted email messages. Our Site’s servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address. The IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send data such as the web pages users view. An IP address does not personally identify a user. We use this information to deliver the Site’s content to you upon request and to measure traffic within the Site.
How we use and share your information. We use the information we collect in a variety of ways, including using the information to customize features and advertising that appear on the Site. We also may provide your information to third parties, such as service providers, contractors, and sponsors, for a variety of purposes.
Our Use of Information.
The information we gather and collect enables us to provide the Site and to help you partake of our services. You agree that we may use your information to:
• contact you for customer service purposes

The information we collect is kept for the time necessary to carry out the service or purpose described in this policy.
Information We Share.
You consent to our sharing of information for the purposes described below:
1) Service Providers and Contractors:
We reserve the right to disclose to service providers, contractors, or other third parties any or all of the information that we collect online about you and other visitors to conduct business on our behalf. These activities could include processing payments, maintaining this Site, and providing business services to us or to you.
2) By Law or to Protect Rights:
We may disclose information when we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to enforce our intellectual property rights, or to protect the rights, property or safety of VERSATOTES and our employees, and if necessary to defend against third-party claims. We may also disclose information when requested to comply with a court order, investigation, or governmental request.
3) Business Transfers:
4) With Your Consent:
We may share information when you provide us with your consent to do so. This may occur when you consent affirmatively or it may occur through your use of the Site as provided in this Policy. For instance, when you request information or services from our affiliates, partners, service providers, or other third parties through us, or when you post information to our Site, you provide your consent for us to share that information with others. We will also use your personal information to communicate with you about your orders and deliveries, including a confirmation email.
5) We Won’t Sell your Information:
Please bear in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example through comments and participation in forums or through email – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
VERSATOTES uses a third-party payment processor for any purchases made through the Site. We do not store credit card information on our servers and are not responsible for the policies or practices of the third-party processor.
MODIFYING YOUR INFORMATION AND OPTING OUT.
If you share information with us, you will have the opportunity to review, update, change or delete the information you have provided to us (and that we continue to store) at any time. You can also stop receiving emails from us or disable your account to prevent any future purchases through that account. Please contact us directly on our Contact page to effect changes or click on the “unsubscribe” link located at the bottom of marketing emails you may receive from us. If you email us, please title your email “Corrections/Opt Out”.
STORAGE OF INFORMATION.
All information gathered on our Site is stored within a database accessible only by us. We will use industry standard measures, including encryption where appropriate. However, as effective as the reasonable security measures we implement may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information supplied will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet. Therefore, any information you transmit to us is sent at your own risk.
By using the Site, purchasing a product, or providing personal information to us, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Site. If we learn of a security system’s breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on the Site or sending an email to you. You may have a legal right to receive this notice in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice), please contact us at the address below.
This Site is controlled and operated by TheChickStarter from its offices in New York and Chicago. Data collected from this Site will be stored in the USA, but may also reside on servers located outside of the USA. Access to the Site from territories or nations where any aspect of this Site is illegal is prohibited. For further information, please contact us.
Additional Information About US.
We do not publish text, images, or multimedia content that portrays nudity, foul language, violence, or other information not suitable for children. Although the VERSATOTES is an awesome addition to families of all shapes and sizes, the Site is not directed to children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly maintain personally identifiable information from or about anyone under 13. If we become aware that we have collected personally identifiable information from a user of the Site that is under the age of 13, then we will remove that child’s personal information from our files.
