AusAngels Imports Inc Company Policies
Last updated: March 10, 2005


AusAngels Imports Inc knows that you care how your personal information is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting AusAngels Imports Inc, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice. 

What Personal Information About Customers Does AusAngels Imports Inc Gather?

The information we learn from customers helps us continually improve your shopping experience at AusAngels Imports Inc. Here are the types of information we gather:

* Website usage statistics: The information collected does not identify website users personally rather it uses the IP address and other information such as browser, operating system, screen resolution and referrers. AusAngels Imports Inc uses this information to help us improve our online users website usage experience.

* Shopping cart orders: The online order process collects any personal information using a secure SSL connection which protects your information. Once collected your order information is stored in a secure database. All access to this information is via a secure SSL connection. All order information including customer data is not kept beyond the routine back-up of the live database which is made for purely operational reasons. There are no circumstances under which we would pass on customer data to anyone other than the VISA payment processing service. 

What About Cookies? 

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers which enable our shopping cart system to function. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of AusAngels  Imports Inc's coolest features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on. As a general rule we only ever use session (memory resident) cookies, they "die" when you close down your browser.

Does AusAngels Imports Inc Share the Information It Receives?

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. 

Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include shopping cart service, delivering packages, providing marketing assistance, and processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Protection of AusAngels Imports Inc 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 AusAngels Imports Inc, 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 Policy.

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. 

What Choices Do I Have? 

You can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please notify via email or in writing. (If you do not want to receive Conditions of Use and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Policy, those notices will still govern your use of AusAngels Imports Inc, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.)

Children:

AusAngels Imports Inc does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use AusAngels Imports Inc only with the involvement of a parent or guardian. 

Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions 

If you choose to visit AusAngels Imports Inc, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the province of British Columbia. If you have any concern about privacy at AusAngels Imports Inc, please contact us with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it. 

Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
