PRIVACY POLICY

Willem-Aidan is committed to respecting the privacy rights of our customers and all visitors to our Web site, Willem-Aidan.com. We take this matter very seriously. Willem-Aidan does not sell or give away sensitive personal information (such as billing addresses) to any company outside of Willem-Aidan.com. The following outlines Willem-Aidan's privacy policy and details the measures we have taken to safeguard and protect your privacy, while providing you with rewarding online shopping experience. By visiting Willem-Aidan, you are agreeing to the policies detailed below.

Collection and Usage of Information

In order to serve you better, Willem-Aidan collects and stores your personal information when you: (i) create an account on Willem-Aidan; (ii) sign up to be notified of special deals like discounts and exclusive offers; or (iii) enter a contest or promotion on our site. An account is created when you do one of following things: make a purchase on Willem-Aidan, register for an account on Willem-Aidan, or sign up for special deals like discounts and exclusive offers on Willem-Aidan. When creating an account, we ask you for your first and last name, your e-mail address, address, a password, and perhaps some other similar information. If you are making a purchase, we will additionally ask you for your billing address, shipping address, and credit card information.

To increase security and prevent fraud, Willem-Aidan never permanently stores your credit card information in our system. Credit card information is only saved temporarily, and once it is securely sent to the card processing bank to complete your order, the information is cleared from our system.

Our system also may gather information about the areas you visit on our site as well as the IP address you use to connect to our site. We may use this data internally only for 2 reasons: 1) to personalize your experience on Willem-Aidan.com and the marketing materials you receive from Willem-Aidan and 2) to prevent fraud on your account. We would not share any of this data on an individual basis (we may share it in an aggregate form without personal identifiers) with any outside company other than perhaps consultants or service providers of Willem-Aidan who are assisting Willem-Aidan in serving you better. Of course, to the extent that we would ever share any of that information with a consultant or service provider, we would only do so if that party agreed to protect your private information by adopting a privacy policy at least as stringent as our own. We do use navigational information both in the aggregate and on an individual basis to understand how our visitors use Willem-Aidan so that we can make our site better. We do not keep track of where you go on the World Wide Web.

Your information is used to process your orders and personalize your shopping experience on Willem-Aidan, for internal purposes and to comply with any legal requirements. By storing your personal information on a secure server, Willem-Aidan is able to shorten your checkout process.

At Willem-Aidan, we also review what kinds of products appeal most to our customers as a group. This statistical information helps us improve our offering in the same way that other companies change their catalog based on what sells best. We may also use information about the kinds of products you buy from Willem-Aidan to make other marketing offers to you. Of course, you always have the option to opt-out from receiving such offers (for instructions on how to opt-out, please see below).

Information Security

Willem-Aidan has implemented a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights. When you're in secure mode, your computer and our server begin communicating, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format. We use powerful 128-bit SSL encryption that ensures the security of this data as it is transmitted to our server. Your browser in secure mode will display a URL address beginning "https://" rather than the standard "http://". The "s" stands for "secure." In Netscape Navigator TM (versions 3.0 and earlier), the broken key symbol in the lower left corner of your browser window will become a solid key in secure mode. If you're using Netscape Communicator 4.0 TM or higher, look for the padlock in the same space: it's open in standard mode and closed in secure mode. In Microsoft Internet Explorer TM, you'll see a padlock symbol at the bottom of your browser window when the browser is in secure mode.

Usage of E-mail Addresses

Your e-mail address is used to create and identify your account on Willem-Aidan. Your e-mail address is also used by Willem-Aidan to correspond with you about any orders that you may place or to notify you with the results of any contests you may have entered. We may also use your e-mail address to notify you about important functionality changes to the Web site, new Willem-Aidan services and special offers and promotions we think you'll find valuable. If you would rather not receive this information, or would like to opt-out of receiving e-mail of this kind, simply click on the "Unsubscribe" link that appears at the bottom of any email and follow the simple instructions to have your email address removed from the list of customers who receive notices of new functionality, services, special offers and promotions.
