The Wig Company (“TWC”) values our customers, their information, their privacy and their trust. This Policy explains how we collect, use and protect information collected through our website. Specifically, this Policy applies to TWC’s collection, use, processing, storage, and transfer of information associated with TWC’s website, www.thewigcompany.com (the “Site”). If there is something you do not understand about our privacy practices, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Throughout this Policy, we refer to the term “Personal Information.” “Personal Information” is data about an individual who can be identified from that data, or by combining it with other data. Personal Information is usually your name in combination with another identifier, such as date of birth, postal address, email address, telephone number, or government-issued identification number. The specific definition of Personal Information varies from one jurisdiction to another.
Personal Information does not include anonymous or aggregated data that can no longer be used to identify a specific person, even if combined with other data.
Some of our customers are businesses, companies, institutions, or other entities rather than individuals. We do not consider Business Information, such as one’s position, employer’s name, title, work email, work phone number, work address, work fax, and other similar business information, to be Personal Information.
Information We Collect
Information Collected Directly From You
When you report a problem with our Site or services, we will collect your name and email address along with a description of your problem so that we may address your problem. When you contact us at an email address on this Site via email, we will collect your email address and any information you include in your email to similarly address your concerns. We keep this information for a reasonable period of time in our legitimate interest in informing you about products or services of ours that may be of interest to you.
We also collect your name, address, phone number, and email address. We use this information to process payment for our products and services and to update you on the status of your account and your reports. We may use your email address to send you information about products and services of ours that may be of interest to you. You can opt out of these communications by following the directions found in those communications or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For information we collect from you to complete a purchase, we retain that information for as long as necessary to process your payment and for an additional sixty (60) days afterwards.
Our partner on this Site, TSYS, collects additional information during the processing of purchases and charges on our behalf (including your credit or debit card number, billing address, telephone numbers, type of card, expiration date, and CVV number) as part of our legitimate interest in processing payment for your purchases. Your credit card information is only kept for as long as necessary to process the payment and then is deleted from our system.
In the absence of a legal obligation to the contrary, we keep your contact information (name and email address) for a reasonable period of time after your last contact with us and only to allow us to inform you of potential products or services of ours that may be of interest to you. No information is kept indefinitely and is only used as described in this Policy.
Our Site is not directed to children under age 13 and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. Children under 13 should not provide their Personal Information to us through our Site, to customer service, or in writing. If we learn that Personal Information belonging to anyone under the age of 13 is stored on the Site, we will immediately delete such information and refrain from using it for any purpose.
Other Information We Collect
In addition to collecting information directly from you as described in the previous section, we also automatically gather information when you browse or view our Site. This information may include Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, clickstream data, whether you are a first-time or a returning user, links you clicked on while in the Site, and your flow and navigation path through the Site. We use this information to make sure that the Site, and its associated parts, are functioning properly, that the Site is displayed properly for your equipment and software, and that we can provide you with information useful to you and your location.
There are “do not track” or similar browser choices available to internet users with respect to online web activity, but given the present lack of consensus of what constitutes an informed election, appropriate trigger or breadth of scope of such choice, our Site will not operate any differently when a “do not track” signal is received.
In some of our email messages, you will find a “click-through URL” linked to content on our Site. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click such links in our email messages.
We use technologies such as “cookies” so we can remember certain information about you, remember your preferences or recognize you when you return. They also help us compile aggregate data about Site traffic and Site interaction so that we can improve our Site and protect our Site from fraud.
