PRIVACY POLICY



Last Updated: August 8, 2011

At Afro-Hair-Care.com I believe your personal information deserves the utmost protection. I strive to offer my visitors the many advantages of the latest Internet technology and to provide an interactive and personalized experience.

I may use Personally Identifiable Information (e.g., your name, email address, street address, telephone number) subject to the terms of this privacy policy. I will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unauthorized third party. NEVER.

How I Gather Information from Users

How Afro-Hair-Care.com collects and stores information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you choose to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you submit the "Contact Form" on Afro-Hair-Care.com such as your email address and your name.

Like most web sites, Afro-Hair-Care.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to my visitors. For example, my webserver may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology or web beacons to recognize you and hold information from your visit.

What Is Done With the Information Collected

Like other responsible Web publishers, I collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. I respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone.

Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, I may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help improve/enhance my site and services.

For example, I can learn which web pages are visited the most or which part of my website is the most attractive and popular with visitors. Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with my advertisers and business partners. Don't worry, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.

I may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on Afro-Hair-Care.com to communicate with you about my Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, products offered by Afro-Hair-Care.com, and other topics I think you might find of interest.

Personally Identifiable Information collected by Afro-Hair-Care.com may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law.

In addition, from time to time as I continue to develop, I may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. I may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when I believe I am reasonably required to do so by law, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever I deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note I may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

Affiliated Sites, Linked Sites And Advertisements

At Afro-Hair-Care.com I expect my partners, advertisers and affiliates to respect the privacy of my users. Please be aware that third parties, including my partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through my site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to my site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a Afro-Hair-Care.com webpage, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party.

Also, through Afro-Hair-Care.com you may be introduced to, or be able to access information, Web sites, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. Please note that Afro-Hair-Care.com is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.

You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on message boards or in chat areas or in forums, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without my knowledge or consent and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of myself, Afro-Hair-Care.com and this privacy policy.
