For the most part, Eterea user activity is broadcast to the internal team working with Eterea and Shopify. Unless compelled by law enforcement or website of process related to any legal proceeding, Eterea will never share personally identifiable information with anyone outside of the Eterea and Shopify network.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES ETEREA COLLECT?
The information we gather from website visitors enables us to personalize and improve the user experience as well as our websites and to allow our visitors to contact us to network and share with others. We collect the following types of information from our website visitors.
Personal Information You Provide to Us:
We receive and store any information you enter or submit to us via email or by forms found on our website(s). The types of personal information collected may include your name, user name, address, email address, phone number, IP address, user information, browser information, type of user, and order information. The personal information you provide is used for such purposes as improving the content of the website, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features. We may also draw upon this personal information in order to adapt the websites of our community to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network, and to develop new tools for the community.
Personal Information Collected Automatically:
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our website or websites. Eterea automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.
Generally, our website automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components. Eterea only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the website or websites so that we can make the website appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those websites. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their websites and our website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, Eterea never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Eterea if your computer supports this type of program. Eterea uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful and improve our website.
What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Eterea cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is.
SHARING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION USING THE WEBSITE
The website is primarily designed to help you share information, including your location, confidential medical information, and all information related to your profile and/or presence on the Eterea site with others. This not only includes the information that you provide directly to Eterea, but also information that you broadcast to third party websites using the website. You can control your information via the ‘settings’ tab once you’re logged into the website.
Will Eterea Share Any of the Personal Information it Receives?
Personal information about our customers is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone. We may share your personal information only as described below.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: In due course, Eterea may become affiliated with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses sell items or provide promotions to you through Eterea’s Website. In other situations, Eterea provides websites, or sells products jointly with affiliated businesses. You can easily recognize when an affiliated business is associated with your transaction, and we will only share your personal information that is related to such transactions with that affiliated business, if you have agreed to be solicited by marketing partners during the registration process.
Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or websites to you. Unless we tell you differently, Eterea’s agents do not have any right to use personal information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. By using the website, you hereby consent to our sharing of personal information for the above purposes.
Communication in response to User Submissions: As part of the website, you will receive company email and other communication relating to your user submissions. You acknowledge and agree that by posting such user submissions, the company may send you email and other communication that it determines in its sole discretion relate to your user submissions. The company also will use your email to send you updates when you receive a new friend request, and an Eterea newsletter – however, you can opt out of all of these communications on your settings page.
Promotional Offers: As part of the website you may be exposed to offers on behalf of other businesses. However, when we do so, we do not give the other business your name and address.
Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Eterea, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Eterea goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Eterea may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Protection of Eterea and Others: We may release personal information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with that law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Eterea, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your personal information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
Non-Private or Non-Personal Information: For clarity, we may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as the number of users who live in a given city/zip code (even if only one user does).
Is Personal Information About me Secure?
Your Eterea website use and personal information is protected (where applicable) by a password for your privacy and security. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your personal email account or any affiliated accounts related to Eterea and personal information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
Eterea endeavours to protect user information to ensure that user account information is kept private, however, Eterea cannot guarantee the security of user account information on any personal email accounts. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time. In using the websites, you acknowledge that breaches in security may occur from time to time, and hold Eterea harmless if they do.
DEACTIVATING YOUR ACCOUNT
Should you ever decide to deactivate your information from any mailing lists associated with the Eterea account, you may do so by clicking the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email. If you deactivate your account, you will be deleted from Eterea’s servers. Because of the way we maintain Eterea, such deletion may not be immediate, and residual copies of your profile information or posts may remain on backup media.
Questions or Concerns
If you have any questions or concerns regarding privacy using the website, please send us a detailed message to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make every effort to resolve your concerns.
