INFORMATION COLLECTION, USAGE, AND SAFETY
VOXAPOD.com collects customer information in an effort to improve our customer's shopping experience, to communicate with our customers about our products, services and promotions, and to enhance and improve the performance and accuracy of our operations and website. We collect information such as your name, e-mail and postal address and credit card numbers, that you provide to us when you place an order, when you save your information with us or when you participate in a promotion or survey. VOXAPOD.com may use your information collected online to process and fulfill your order. We also collect e-mail addresses at various locations within the site including when you order from the site so that we can send you any necessary e-mail messages related to your order — such as an order confirmation notice, as well as send you other information that we believe may be of interest to you. In addition, we maintain a record of your product interests, purchases and whatever else might enable us to enhance and personalize your shopping experience. We also monitor site use and traffic patterns to improve our web site design, the products and services we offer and the way in which we offer them. VOXAPOD.com recognizes that it must maintain and use customer information responsibly.
To serve you better and improve our performance, we may combine information you give us online or in stores. We may also combine that information with publicly available information and information we receive from or cross-reference with select partners and others. By combining this information we are better able to communicate with you about our products, special events and promotional purposes and to personalize your shopping experience.
disclosure to third parties
VOXA POD does share information you provide to us when you participate in a promotion with those companies with whom we have joined to offer these promotions as well as other companies whose promotions we think will interest you. We may disclose information about you to other members of the VOXA POD corporate family and as required by law. In the event that a store, division, assets or part or all of VOXA POD is bought, sold or otherwise transferred, or is in the process of a potential transaction, customer information will likely be shared for evaluation purposes and included among the transferred business assets.
We may contract with other companies to provide certain services which are necessary for us to conduct our business. We will provide these companies with only the information they need to perform their services. In addition, VOXAPOD will send personally identifiable information about you to other companies when we have your consent or we need to share the information to provide the products or services you have requested. As a matter of policy, your email address will never be distributed to or shared with third parties who wish to use your information for their own marketing or commercial purposes.
VOXAPOD may lawfully disclose information about you as required by law or if we have good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with current judicial proceedings, a court order or legal process served on us, (b) protect and defend our rights, or (c) protect the rights, property, and other interests of our users or others.
