How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit card information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only accessed as stated above.  All Bachelr employees with access to personal information are required to follow specific practices concerning its proper handling.

Please be careful whenever sending personal information to us via the “Contact Us” feature on this site or via e-mail.  For example, do not send us your account password or credit card information via these methods, as they may not be a secure means of transferring that information.  In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personal information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possibleunder the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your email address, we may notify you by email.


Do we use "cookies"?

Yes. Cookies are small text 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. They 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 also evaluate our content and services and tailor our site, for members and visitors, based on other information we collect such as pixel tags (or clear gifs), and the type of Internet browser or operating system you are using. We may also use pixel tags in emails that we send to you. This information is collected in the aggregate, but we may tie it to your personal information through cookie use as described above.

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.  Cookies and/or pixel tags may be placed by our third party service providers, who provide these services on our behalf.

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 Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) 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. However, you can still place orders over the telephone by contacting customer service.


Do we disclose the information we collect to third parties?

At times we may retain third parties to analyze data we collect on our site, and to administer the services provided (such as shipping, web hosting, etc.), solely to help us provide and improve our products, services and our site. These suppliers and other third parties are not authorized by us to use your personal information in any other way.

From time to time, we may make arrangements with other companies to provide you with joint products or services.  We may participate in cooperative databases.  Database participants provide customer names and mailing addresses, and information about their customers’ purchasing history to the database.  This allows database participants to segment and/or obtain access to potentially interested parties to whom they may target their promotions.

Non-personally identifiable aggregate visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

We may have to use personal information to investigate complaints and protect Bachelr and its members, in compliance with the law and our policies. We may release your information if required to do so by law, including inquiries that are subject to a subpoena, court order or warrant or to cooperate with or participate in legal investigations, or protect the rights, property or safety of Bachelr or other persons or entities.


How can you opt-out, remove or modify information you have provided to us?

If you would no longer like to receive promotional e-mails from us, please let us know by modifying your preferences in the "My Account" section. Please note that due to e-mail production schedules you may receive any emails already in production while we are processing your request.  If you prefer not to have your name, e-mail address and mailing address released or prefer that we not send you e-mail communications about offerings which may be of interest to you, please let us know by sending an e-mail to support@bachelr.

To delete all of your online account information from our database, sign into the "My Account" section of our site and remove your shipping addresses, billing addresses and payment information. Please note that we may maintain information about an individual sales transaction in order to service that transaction and for record- keeping purposes.

 

Third party links/advertisers

Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these linked sites (including if a specific link does not work).

We may also use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure and enhance advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and pixel tags is generally not personally identifiable (unless, for example, you provide personally identifiable information to them through an ad or email message).
