The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at Celestis. Here are the types of information we gather:
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site (contact information and submissions) or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our store, and communicating with you.
Information you give us includes, but is not limited to, that which you provide when searching for a product, placing an order, communicating with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise, completing a questionnaire or a contest entry form, or providing employer information for a corporate account. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address, and phone numbers, credit card information; people to whom purchases have been shipped including addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail address.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Like many websites, we employ "cookies" that obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses Celestis, advertisements, and other content served by or on behalf of Celestis on other websites.
As you browse the Celestis website, advertising cookies will be placed on your computer so that we can understand what you are interested in. Our display advertising partners then enable us to present you with retargeting advertising on other sites based on your previous interaction with Celestis. The techniques our partners employ do not collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address, or telephone number. You can visit this page to opt out of AdRoll and their partners' targeted advertising.
E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from Celestis if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, you can adjust your Customer Communication Preferences or, unsubscribe from receiving any future e-mails.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries SSHI controls that either are subject to this Privacy Statement or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Statement.
Affiliated businesses we do not control: We work closely with affiliated businesses or we operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines jointly with other businesses.
Third-party service providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Promotional offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of customers on behalf of other businesses operated by SSHI. If you do not want to receive such offers, please adjust your Customer Communication Preferences.
Protection of SSHI and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of SSHI, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
Your personal and financial information is very important, and therefore, is not shared in any way. All vital information is protected with the industry-standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. Any time you must leave personal financial information such as credit card numbers, we transmit that credit card number in an encrypted format. We do not store or save the credit card number. We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing, in an encrypted format.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
