Generally, you may browse our web shops without providing any Personally Identifiable Information. However, to improve our customers' shopping experience, Taiga Marketing and its web shops require the collection of certain information on customers making online purchases, or when our customers request information from us. Taiga Marketing's priority is our customers' privacy and online security.

We handle this information in the following way:

Our database server also collect anonymous information such as website usage information and IP addresses automatically. This information is used solely for the purposes of improving our site design, planning our product assortments, providing better customer service, and introducing special promotions.

If necessary, this information will be passed to third parties we use (i.e. payment processors, order fulfillment house, or database/email maintenance and administration agents etc). These third party service providers have access to the information in order to perform their functions, however, they are legally bound not to use the information for any other purposes.

Information may also be disclosed to government law agencies if required by law, or if we deem it necessary to do in order to protect the public.

Taiga Marketing will not share, sell or lease information about you to any non-related third parties.

Links to outside sites we do not control

For your convenience, our sites may contain links to other sites operated by other third parties. Taiga Marketing is not responsible for the privacy policies on any of these outside sites. If you provide your personal information at these sites, you are subject to their privacy policy. They are independent from us, and we have no control over their activities.

Online Account Registration

You may register with our web shops to enhance your shopping experience. You only have to enter your billing address or shipping addresses once when you open an account or create an order, which will then be securely stored in our database for your future use. Please note that we strongly encourage you to LOG OUT at the conclusion of your session for your protection, especially when you are using a public computer. This will prevent someone else from accessing your personal information from that computer.

Children

Our web shops are general audience sites, and Taiga Marketing has no intention of collecting or maintaining any personal information from those we actually know are under 13. No parts of our web shops are targeted to anyone under 13. Taiga Marketing urges all parents to supervise their children while they are using the Internet, and use web filtering technology to control children's access to the web.

Data Retention

We retain your information for as long as necessary to permit us to use it for the purposes that we have communicated to you and comply with applicable law or regulations.

Security

Your personal information is maintained with high standards of information security. The information is stored on servers with firewall protection, and Secure Socket Layering ("SSL") transmission is used to encrypt the sensitive information you entered during your order. SSL is encryption technology that provides security while information is being transmitted over the Internet.All of our web shops are designed to accept orders only from Web browsers that permit communication through SSL technology, such as 4.0 versions or higher of Netscape Navigator, versions 5.01 or higher of Internet Explorer, versions 0.8 or higher of Firefox and versions 1.2 or higher of Safari.

We also take physical and administrative steps to handle the security of your personal information, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers. Please note that the messages sent through e-mail and the "Contact Us" tab of our web shops are not encrypted. Thus, we do not encourage our customer to send credit card information through such means.

To abolish the risk of credit card information being compromised, Taiga Marketing chooses not to retain your credit card data on our servers for the web shops. Taiga Marketing does NOT save your credit card information. The credit card data you entered during shopping will be sent directly to the payment processor for that particular transaction. Everytime you return to shop, you will have to enter the credit card information. However, Taiga Marketing feels it is a small inconvenience to endure for assured security.

While we implement the above security measures on this site, you should be aware that 100% security is not always possible.

Policy Changes

This is the only authorized statement of our Privacy Policy, which outlines the information Taiga Marketing may collect and how we may use and share that information through our web shops. We may revise it from time to time. However, we will not retroactively change how we share your information with your consent first. We encourage you to periodically review it to ensure that you are updated with the policy. The effective date will be noted at the beginning of the policy.
