We are committed to respecting your privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of personal information you share with us. The phrase ‘personal information’ applies to any information by which you can be identified, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, etc. The purpose of this policy is to explain how we handle information we collect from you during your visit to our web site.
Collecting Information About You or Your School
When you order or purchase a product, subscribe to a service or create your account we will ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card information if you select this payment option. Of this information your credit card details are not captured or stored on our database at all, as the entire transaction is handled by a Bank Approved Secure Gateway Service Provider who uses sophisticated encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of your personal banking information. The other information such as your name and contact details are retained by our database and used to maintain a record of your product purchases enabling us to provide you with a professional service. For example we may need to contact you via phone or e-mail to address questions or issues specific to your order.
Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers or content on the SCHOOL SUPPLIERS® web site.
Using Information About You or Your School
We use the personal information you provide for internal purposes, such as confirming and tracking your order, subscription or registration, analyzing trends and statistics and informing you of our new products, services or offers. We do not share or cross-reference your personal information with any other entity or partner whatsoever. When contracting with our service providers, such as a courier service, we only provide the information needed for them to perform these services.
Although unlikely, in certain instances we may disclose your personal information when we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities that may be causing injury to you, to the SCHOOL SUPPLIERS® brand or to others. We may also disclose your personal information when we believe the law requires it.
Editing, Updating, Correcting and Deleting Information About You or Your School
We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. Creating an account on the SCHOOL SUPPLIERS® site is entirely voluntary and you are able to purchase items without having an account. The benefit of creating your own account is that, it enables you to check out faster, save multiple shipping addresses, access your order history, track new orders and save items to your wishlist. You are able to update or change your account details yourself once signed in.
