Your access to, and use of, the Services is subject to Beanstack's Terms of Use. Beanstack has created this Privacy Policy to explain what information we gather from you when you visit our Site or use the Services, how we may use this information, and the security approaches we use to protect your information. This Privacy Policy is incorporated and made part of Beanstack's Terms of Use.

By using the Services, you consent to the collection and use of your information by Beanstack in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page. Policy changes will apply only to information collected after the date of the change.

1. What information do we collect?

We may ask you for your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, or other information. You may, however, visit our Site without providing such information.

We use IP addresses and session identifiers to analyze trends, to administer the Services, to track user activities, to infer user interests, and to otherwise induce, deduce, and gather information.

Like many websites, we use "cookies" to enhance your experience and gather information about visitors and visits to our Site. Please refer to the "Do we use 'cookies'?" section below for information about cookies and how we use them.

Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret web browser-based “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signals other than cookies, we do not currently respond to undefined “DNT” signals to the Site or Services.

2. How do we use your information?

We may use the information we collect from you when you register, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the Site, or use the Services in the following ways:

  • To personalize your experience with the Services and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested.
  • To allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests.
  • To quickly process your transactions.
  • To administer a promotion, survey or other feature of the Services.

 

3. Do we disclose the information we collect to outside parties?

We do not sell or trade your personally identifiable information for marketing, advertising, or other use under any circumstances. We may share your information with our affiliates and website hosting partners and other trusted parties who assist us in providing the Services, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential and use it only for purposes of delivering the Services to you. In the event that we sell our company, or otherwise transfer any assets of our company, we may provide your information to the purchaser who agrees to this Privacy Policy so that you may continue the relationship or business with us and our products. We may also release your information when we believe release is necessary to comply with law, enforce our Site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.

4. Correction/Updating Personal Information

You can correct or update your personally identifiable information by re-registering, updating your profile, or by contacting us by electronic-mail at contact@beanstack.com or by telephone at 412-532-6267.

5. Do we use "cookies"?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. Cookies are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current Site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about Site traffic and Site interaction so that we can offer better Site experiences and tools in the future.

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our Site visitors or the users of the Services. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your Site experience more efficient and some of our Services will not function properly.

6. Safeguarding Your Personal Information

Beanstack follows generally accepted industry security standards to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use your personally identifiable information. However, no commercial method of information transfer over the Internet or electronic data storage is known to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of that information during its transmission or its storage in our systems.

7. Privacy and Third Party Services

This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by our Services. In an attempt to provide you with increased value, we may link to or provide Services integrated with sites or services operated by third parties (collectively, “Third Party Services”). These Third Party Services have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these Third Party Services. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our Services and welcome any feedback about these Third Party Services (including if a specific link or integration does not work).

8. Online Policy Only

This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected through our Services and not to information collected offline.

9. Questions and feedback

We welcome your questions, comments, and concerns about the Services. Please send us any and all feedback or questions pertaining to the Services to contact@beanstack.com with "WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY" in the subject line or by mailing us at the following address:

Zoobean, Inc. 3100 Clarendon Blvd #200, Arlington, VA 22201

10. Important Notices to Non-U.S. Residents

It is important to note that the Services are operated in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any visitor information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By using the Services and/or providing us with your visitor information, you consent to this transfer.

11. Your California Privacy Rights

Under California’s "Shine the Light" law, California residents who provide personal information in obtaining products or services for personal, family or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us once a calendar year information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared customer information for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g. requests made in 2013 will receive information regarding 2012 sharing activities).

To obtain this information from Beanstack please send an email message to contact@beanstack.com with "Request for California Privacy Information" on the subject line and in the body of your message. We will provide the requested information to you at your e-mail address in response. Not all information sharing is covered by the "Shine the Light" requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.

Children's Privacy

If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child may send an email message to contact@beanstack.com with “Request for Child Information Removal” on the subject line and the name and age of the child in the body of the message. We will then make reasonable efforts to delete the child’s information from the database that stores information for the Services.
