Our Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
The Information We Collect
We may collect, process and store personal information online, including names, postal and email addresses, phone and facsimile numbers, billing information, and other information which users of our site may choose to share with us. We do not knowingly collect or maintain any personal information from children under the age of 13, and no part of our site is designed with the purpose of attracting any person under age 13.
On some pages, you are asked for your name and email address. In the future, you may be able to order products, make requests, communicate through The Blue Shoe Project™, and/or register to receive materials. In that event, we may ask for your name, postal and email address, phone number, credit/debit card or other billing information, and/or information about your line of business or areas of interest. In the future, you may also be able to submit information about other people. For example, if you wish for materials to be sent to another person, or order a product online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient’s name, postal and/or email address, and/or other possibly identifying information such as a description of business or areas of interest.
We may also collect information automatically and through the use of electronic tools. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use “cookie” technology. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies.
The Way We Use Information
We may use this information in a variety of ways, including communicating with you. Unless you otherwise consent, we will use your personal information only for the purpose for which it is submitted, such as to reply to your emails, process your requests, participate in The Blue Shoe Project™ or others of our programs; to provide operational notices, maintain records, facilitate conferences and compliance with legal obligations, and similar objectives; and to administer, troubleshoot, manage and improve our site. We do not share personally identifiable information with third parties except as necessary in order to accomplish the purpose for which you have submitted it, or as set herein. We may use non-identifying and aggregate information to improve our website, and may share it with business partners or others in the future, but will not use aggregate information to contact you individually.
As we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions your information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are required by law to do so, and/or whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary to give such information to law enforcement authorities. Please note that we may not provide you with notice and choice in such cases.
Sensitive information (such as medical or health condition, racial or ethnic origin) will not be used or transferred for purposes inconsistent with the above unless you expressly agree to such use or transfer. We may transfer personal information to a third party acting as our agent (e.g., consultants, tax advisors and preparers, accountants, auditors, lawyers, financial services and benefits vendors) if the third party confirms that it provides the same level of protection. In that case, notice and choice are not provided to you unless we intend the agent to use the personal information for a purpose incompatible with the purpose for which it was collected. Notice and choice are provided to you if the personal information is transferred to a third party who is not our agent.
If we intend to use personal information for reasons that are not consistent with the above, we will give you the opportunity to opt-out of that use or transfer.
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we make reasonable efforts to put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
