Types and Uses of Personal Information

Your personal information is used in the following ways:

User IDs and Passwords: Provide you with access to your profile areas and to protected content.

Account Information: Tells us more about who you are, how to contact you, and your shipping and billing information. Also contains any preferences you have provided, such as language, e-mail format and interests.

Customer Feedback and Support: Provides a mechanism for requesting information from SNS. Also used to tell how we can improve our products, services and site designs.

Email Correspondence: Used to raise and respond to issues and inquiries of all types. Also used to distribute information about SNS, our products, and services.

Security Measures

We protect the personal information you share with us. For example, if you make an online purchase with us, we encrypt your credit card number. Access to your personal information is limited to people who need it to do their job. Authorized third-party agents may also need access to some of your personal information. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We only provide third-party agents with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction. We do not otherwise share your personal information with third-parties, unless you have granted us permission to do so.

We may respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process. We also may choose to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

We may collect and possibly share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of SNS’s terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

 

Linked Web Sites

We provide links to third-party sites. Since we do not control these Web sites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these (and all) third-party sites.
