At G*FURN we understand that your privacy and the personal information collected must remain secure. We use the information we collect about you to process orders and to provide a more personalized shopping experience. We will not sell or disclose any information that identifies you to a third party.
COLLECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
G*FURN is the sole owner of the information collected on our site. We only collect personal information that is necessary for us to conduct our business activities. When making a purchase through our site, we collect your name, shipping and billing addresses, phone number, email address, and credit card information, in order to process your order and ensure that it is delivered to the correct address.
Once we have collected an email address, we send our email newsletter informing you of news and our special product offers. You are welcome to visit our site without providing any of this information; however, we are unable to process an order or send email newsletter without the requested information.
We also collect the IP address of visitors to our site, and collect aggregate information about the use of our site. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
The only personal information that we collect about you when you use our website is what you tell us about yourself, for example, when you complete an online form, when placing an order, or information you provide to us when you send us an email. Please note, we will record your email address if you send us an email.
USING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We respect your privacy. We use the personal information collected from you primarily to process and fulfill your orders, to notify you of the status of your orders, to send our email newsletter, or to send you targeted marketing information, special product offers, or other information that we believe might interest you. In every such email, you will have instructions on how to unsubscribe and avoid receiving any future emails from us. Please see our Opt-Out Policy below.
Please be assured we will not disclose information about you unless the disclosure is required or authorized by law, you have given your expressed consent, or for another purpose (related to the primary purpose of collecting that information) that you would reasonably expect.
G*FURN customers have the choice of ‘opting-in’ to receive our newsletter via email. We will not sell, rent or distribute your email address to any third party without your consent.
At any time, you may choose to unsubscribe or ‘opt-out’ of receiving our newsletter or marketing emails. An easy-to-use link and instructions are provided at the bottom of these types of email communications in the event that you choose to unsubscribe. If you do choose to unsubscribe, your email address will be removed from our promotions and newsletter mailing list. You may also contact us requesting that you no longer want to receive promotions and news from G*FURN at [email protected] with ‘unsubscribe’ in the subject line. Please be sure to email us from the address that you want removed.
We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement. We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities, e.g. G*FURN has third party relationships with a credit card processing company (which is responsible for processing your funds to complete a purchase made by you) and shipping companies. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
G*FURN may share non-personal, non-individual information in aggregate with our vendors and partners for research purposes only (such as traffic patterns, sales volume and related site information).
We may also disclose your personal information :
as required by law such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process
when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect and defend the rights of Meubles Gfurn inc., protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
In most cases you may have access to personal information that we hold about you. We encourage all requests for access to your personal information to be directed to the Privacy Officer by emailing us or by writing to us at our postal address. We will deal with all requests for access to personal information as quickly as possible. Requests for a large amount of information, or information which is not currently in use, may require further time before a response can be given.
In some cases, we may refuse to give you access to personal information we hold about you. This includes, but is not limited to, circumstances where giving you access would: be unlawful (e.g. where a record which contains personal information about you is subject to a claim for legal professional privilege by one of our clients); have an unreasonable impact on other people's privacy; prejudice an investigation of unlawful activity.
We will also refuse access where the personal information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings, and the information would not be accessible by the process of discovery in those proceedings. If we refuse to give you access we will provide you with reasons for our refusal.
CORRECTING AND UPDATING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
On request we will let you see the information we hold about you and correct it if it is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.
SECURING AND STORING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of the information that you provide us and we will take all reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from unauthorized use or alteration. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. All orders are transmitted over secure Internet connections using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption technology. All of your personal information is stored in encrypted format at all times. Credit card details are never stored on the Internet with our system. Once you type this information, it is sent instantly, encrypted, direct to our order processing system. We employ a 128-bit encryption technology in all areas of the site that require you to provide payment information. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot guarantee 100% the security of any information (personal or other) you transmit to us.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
G*FURN contains links to other sites not affiliated with G*FURN. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to go to other sites, as we do not guarantee that these sites adhere to the same high standards of privacy and security that we uphold. Users should read the privacy statements of any website that collects personally identifiable information and G*FURN cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of these unaffiliated websites.
We may update this privacy statement to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the email address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this site prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
