- What Personal Information About Users Does Betta Collect?
This policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that Betta does not own or control, or to individuals that Betta does not employ or manage.
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with a friendly, customized and efficient experience. We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purposes of the Website. We do not process this information in a way that is incompatible with the purposes for which it has been collected or subsequently authorized by you. We collect the following types of information from our users:
- Information You Provide to Us:
- Automatic Information:
We receive and store any information you enter on the Website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features. We collect the following personal information:
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Betta automatically receives and records certain "traffic data" on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, Betta cookie information, and the page you requested. Betta uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its server, analyze trends and administer the Website.
Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Website and its components. This data is only used in the aggregate. This type of collective data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of the Website, so we can make the Website appealing to as many users as possible. In addition, we may provide statistical information (about our users in the aggregate, not information about you personally) to our partners. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their areas and the Website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal user experience.
Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites anonymously. While Betta will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in the Website are visited and by how many people. Betta cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is.
Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone. We share your personal information only as described below.
- Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control:
- Business Transfers:
- Protection of Betta and Others:
- With Your Consent:
We are affiliated with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. We will share customer information that is related to transactions made in connection with affiliated business. We will only share personal information that is necessary for the affiliate to complete the transaction. We require our affiliates to provide the same level of privacy protection that we do and they do not have the right to share or use personal information for any purpose other than for an authorized transaction.
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Examples of these services include processing credit card payments. Our agents subscribe to the same level of privacy protection as we do. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the personal information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets transferred. Moreover, if Betta, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, user information would be one of the assets transferred.
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 Betta, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your personal information may be shared with third parties or used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected, and you will be able to prevent the sharing of this information by opting out. To ensure the privacy of your personal information, we will only share information with third parties that provide equal or greater privacy protection.
Users' email addresses and the full names provided at time of registration are never directly revealed to other users. However, to facilitate searching and finding friends and acquaintances on the service, Betta allows users to search using an email address, full name, or the Betta user name as displayed on the user homepage.
Your Betta account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to work to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by logging off once you have finished using a shared computer.
We use industry-standard data encryption software to protect the security of your personal information during transmission.
Only Betta employees who need personal information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to your personal information. All of our employees are kept up to date on our privacy and security practices.
You can access your personal information on the Website and correct, amend, or delete information that is inaccurate. Sign in to the Website and click on the "My Account" link in the upper right corner of the website to access your information.
As stated previously, you can always opt not to disclose information, but then you may be unable to use certain features on the Website.
You are able to add or update certain information on pages, such as those listed in the "What Personal Information About Users Does Betta Collect?" section above. When you update information, however, we often maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records.
You may request termination of your Betta account by emailing Betta at support (at) closetcouture.net. Please note that some information may remain in our records after deletion of your account.
As explained earlier, the "help" portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. Please note, however, that if your browser does not accept cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of some of our attractive features.
The Website is not intended for children under 13, and we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13.
Children aged 13 or older should not submit any personal information without the permission of their parents or guardians. By using the Service, you are representing that you are at least 18 or that you are at least 13 years old and have your parents' permission to use the service.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding privacy at the Website, please send a detailed message to privacy (at) closetcouture.net. Your privacy is important to us and we will make every effort to resolve your concern.
