What Information Do We Collect About You and Why?
The information we collect from you enables us to process and fulfil orders you place with us, to process and fulfil subscriptions you purchase from us, to send you information or content in which you may be interested and to keep you abreast of any updates related to our Site. We may also use this information to personalise and continually improve our Site.
Information We Collect Directly From You
You may browse our Site without registering. You may place an order for products without registering if you wish. For subscription orders, we do require that you register so we can fulfil your subscription correctly and so that you can update your details. To register with us, we request your name and email address. As a part of the registration process, we will also ask you to select a password. We strongly suggest you choose a unique password consisting of at least 16 random characters and numbers. In certain circumstances, such as when making a purchase, we will request that you provide your credit or debit card information and your billing and shipping address. If you sign-up to our email news we will store your name, gender and country of residence (information that you give us when you sign-up). Every promotional email message sent from King of Shaves will include instructions on how to remove yourself from the list should you no longer wish to receive these emailings. Please note that it may take up to ten (10) days for us to process opt-out requests. And we promise never to sell or pass on your details to any other company outside of our group.
Information We Collect Automatically
We may also use automated devices and applications, such as Google Analytics (including User ID) and Facebook Insights, to track usage of our Site. We may use the information gathered through these methods in anonymous or aggregated form to analyse ways to improve our Site. This information may also be associated with your username or email address and may be combined with other information, including personally identifiable information that we collect about you.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other technologies
Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Site to, among other things, track the activities of Site visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about Site usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML emails to our customers, to help us track email response rates, identify when our emails are viewed, and track whether our emails are forwarded.
As noted, we may use automated devices and applications, such as Google Analytics (including User ID), to evaluate usage of our Site. We also may use other analytic means to evaluate our Site. We use these tools to help us improve our Site, performance and user experiences.
