Privacy Policy

For anyone who has questions about how their “Personally Identifiable Information” (PII) is used online, we have created this privacy policy. PII is, as defined in US laws regarding privacy and data security, any information, whether by itself or in conjunction with additional data, that identifies, or is used to get in touch with, find, or identify a person. In order to clearly understand how we use, gather, secure or manage your PII in regards to our website, please read the provided privacy policy carefully.

What Type of Data Is Gathered from Users to Our Website?

If you are ordering anything or enrolling with the Textun website, you may need to provide a name, an email address, a credit card number, or other information to aid in your online experience.

When Is Data Collected?

Your information may be collected when an order is placed, forms are completed, or when information is entered into our website.

Why Is This Data Used?

The information that is gathered from you upon registration on the site, or when you navigate the website, place any orders, or make use of any the services may be used:

  • To offer you the content and products that you may be interested in and to help personalize your experience on our website.
  • To process transactions efficiently.

How Is User Data Protected?

Any personal information that is gathered is kept within secured networks. It can only be accessed by a small number of people with special privileges to access information on those systems. In addition, we are obligated to keep all gathered information private. All sensitive and/or credit information supplied by you is encrypted with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Several security methods are used when an order is entered or submitted, or when information is accessed, in order to secure any personal information.

The transactions on the Textun website are handled through a gateway provider. They are not kept or handled with the servers we own.

Are “Cookies” Used On Our Website?

Yes. A cookie is a file that is downloaded by a website or a service provider onto your computer’s hard drive via the web browser. It allows the website’s or service provider’s computer systems to identify the web browser you’re using and retain data when you allow them to do so.

We do use cookies to retain and handle any items placed in the shopping cart. We also use them to remember your preferences from any of your interactions on the site, which allows us to improve your experiences with us. Cookies are also used to gather aggregate information regarding our site’s traffic and user interactions, in order for us to enhance experiences and additional site tools.

Cookies are used to:

  • Retain and process items placed in a shopping cart.
  • Track promotions.
  • Gather aggregate data regarding website traffic and users’ interactions to improve their experiences and to develop site tools. This information may be gathered by third party companies we employ.

You can receive warnings regarding cookies when they are sent, or all cookies can be turned off for your system. This is done through the settings on web browsers (like Google Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer). Since each browser works differently, go to your browser’s help guide to find out how to set up cookies.

Third Party Disclosure

The personally identifiable information you give us is not sold, traded or transferred by any means to other parties, unless you receive advance notice from us. However, not included in this are the website host providers and other businesses managing or operating the website, or that conduct business for us, or serve you, provided those entities agree to maintain the privacy of all information. Your information may be released if we deem it appropriate in order to be in compliance with the law, to enforce website policies, to protect our own rights or the rights of others, or to protect property or peoples’ safety.

However, visitor information that doesn’t personally identify people may be shared for marketing, promotional and/or other purposes.

Links to Third Party Websites

We sometimes offer or include products and/or services from third parties on our website at our discretion. Each third party website has its own separate privacy policy. We bear no liability or responsibility for any of the activities or content that take place on linked websites. As we do want to maintain the integrity of our website, any comments regarding these sites are welcome.

Google

The promotional requirements by Google are explained in Google’s Advertising Principles. These principles were created to provide users with positive experiences.

Although Google AdSense is not currently enabled on this site, we could enable it at a later time.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA became one of the initial laws in the US requiring online services and business websites to publish their privacy policies. This law reaches beyond California in requiring any entities within the US, and perhaps in the world, operating websites that gather PII from users in California to publish privacy policies prominently on their websites explaining precisely how information is gathered and shared, as well as to be in compliance with this privacy policy. To view it, click here.

Per the CalOPPA we agree:

  • To allow users to visit our website anonymously.
  • To link to the privacy policy from our site’s homepage.
  • To include the word “Privacy” when linking to the privacy policy and ensure it is easy to find.
  • To notify users of changes to the privacy policy on this page.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

The Children’s Online Policy Protection Act puts parents in charge of sharing data from children who are under the age of 13. The enforcement of COPPA is the responsibility of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which is the United States consumer protection agency. The FTC notifies website operators and other online services about what they are responsible for doing to make sure children’s online activities are kept private and are safe.

We specifically do not promote our site to children who are under the age of 13.
