Pixmonix Privacy Statement
We are committed to protecting your privacy. This privacy statement ("Statement") explains data collection and use practices of our website (the “Site”); it does not apply to other online or offline Pixmonix sites, products or services. By accessing the Site, you are consenting to the information collection and use practices described in this Statement.
The Short Description:
We collect personal information (like most all web sites and services), using account information that you provide us and cookies or other automated technologies. We make use of this information only to provide the services that you request and communicate with you only in the manner which you request. You will not get junk mail or spam because you sign on with us or buy our products or services. We do not share your personal information with any other parties except as described below in order to provide you services you request from us.
The Long Description:
Who we are: When we say "we" in this Statement, we are referring to Pixmonix. Accordingly, all information that is subject to this Statement will be used in accordance with this Statement by all parts of Pixmonix. However, other (i.e., non-subsidiary) affiliated companies are not covered by this Statement; those companies are referred to in this Statement as "others," or "other companies".
Collection of your Personal Information: We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you ("personal information") or allows us to contact you to provide a service or carry out a transaction that you have requested such as receiving information about our products and services, entering a contest, requesting email notifications or other communications, or when purchasing products or services. The personal information we collect may include your name, email address, phone number, and mailing address.
The Site may collect certain information about your visit, such as the name of the Internet service provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address through which you access the Internet; the date and time you access the Site; the pages that you access while at the Site and the Internet address of the website from which you linked to the Site. We may use this information to improve and administer the Site.
Use of your Personal Information: The personal information collected on this Site will be used to operate the Site and to provide the service(s) or carry out the transaction(s) you have requested or authorized.
We may use personal information to provide you with more effective customer service, to improve the Site and any related products or services, and to make the Site easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information or by customizing the Site to your particular preference or interests. In order to offer you a more consistent experience in your interactions with us, information collected by the Site may be combined with information collected by other services.
We may use your personal information to provide you with information about the product or service that you are using. Additionally, with your permission, we may send you information about other products and services.
We may merge site-visitation data with anonymous demographic information for research purposes, and we may use this information in aggregate to provide more relevant content. In some sections of the Site, with your approval, we will combine site-visitation data with your personal information in order to provide you with personalized content. If you decline permission, we will not provide you the personalized service and will not merge your personal information with site-visitation data.
When you sign up for a newsletter or agree to receive promotional email, we may use customized links or similar technologies to track links that you click in the email. We may associate that information with your personal information in order to provide you focused email communications or purchase information. Each email from us includes instructions describing how you may stop delivery of that type of communication in the future.
We may hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as website hosting, packaging, mailing and delivering services, answering customer questions about products and services, and sending information about our products, special offers, and other new services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on us or the Site; to protect and defend the rights or property of Pixmonix; or to protect the safety of our employees or agents, users of our products or services, or members of the public.
Personal information collected on the Site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which we or our affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using the Site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
Control of your Personal Information: Except as otherwise described in this statement, personal information you provide on the Site will not be shared outside of Pixmonix and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your permission. As described elsewhere in this Statement, you can access your personal information and make choices about how you wish to be contacted.
We may send periodic emails informing you of the status a product or service you requested or confirming you requested a product or service. For some services we offer, contact with the customer is an intrinsic part of the service. You will not be able to choose to prevent these contacts as they are considered an essential part of the service.
Access to your Personal Information: You can review and edit the personal information and contact preferences you provided at this Site by visiting the account maintenance page (available after you have logged into your account). You will be asked to enter your user name and password before viewing your personal information.

Security of your Personal Information: We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer servers with limited access that are located in controlled facilities. Additionally, when we transmit sensitive personal information over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
