We seek to ensure that any unaffiliated third-parties will not use your Personal Information for any purpose other than that for which they are responsible.  However, we cannot guarantee that they will not use it for any other purpose.

Collection And Use Of Non-Personal Information

We may also collect non-personal information and data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual, including technical information; demographic information (such as your age, gender, or interests); your activity on our website; and information such as your occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, location, and the time zone where you use or receive a product or service (collectively, “Non-Personal Information”).

Here are some examples of the types of Non-Personal Information we may collect and how we may use, share, disclose, transfer and store it.

What Non-Personal Information We May Collect

  • Internet Protocol (IP) address. Your “IP address” is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data, such as the screens and pages of our websites that you view. We use this information to deliver our screens and pages to you upon request, to tailor our websites to the interests of you and our other visitors, and to measure traffic to and within our websites.
  • Cookie.  A “cookie” is a small text file that may be used to collect information about your activity on our websites.  For example, when you visit a screen or page on our websites, a cookie is placed on your machine (if you or your browser accept the cookie).  This cookie may then be read by screen or pages on our websites.  You may configure your browser to notify you or to reject and block cookies, but if you do, you may not have access to some areas of our websites, or to the personalized features of our websites.
  • Web Beacon.  A “web beacon”, “clear gif”, “web bug”, or “pixel tag” is a tiny graphic file with a unique identifier, that is similar in function to a cookie, but allows us to count the number of users that have visited certain pages or screens of our websites, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns.  When used in HTML-formatted email messages, web beacons can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened.  In contrast to cookies, which may be stored on your computer’s hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on pages or screens.

In some of our email and text messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the websites and/or third-party websites.  When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website and/or a third-party’s website.  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 text or graphic links in the email or text messages.

How We May Use, Share, Disclose, Transfer And Store Your Non-Personal Information

Non-Personal Information does not identify you personally.  If you do provide us with Non-Personal Information, we may collect, use, share, disclose, transfer and store it for any purpose.

Aggregated data is considered Non-Personal Information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.  If we do combine Non-Personal Information with personal information the combined information will be treated as Personal Information for as long as it remains combined.

International Transfer Of Information

We may transfer information that we collect about you, including Personal Information, to subsidiary and affiliated entities, or to other third-parties across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.  If you are visiting from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring information about you, including Personal Information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as the European Union, and you consent to:

  • the transfer of information about you, including Personal Information, to the U.S.; and
  • the use and disclosure of information about you, including Personal Information, as described in this Privacy Policy.

Access To Information And Parental Access

As a registered user or account holder of Shady Lady and/or our websites, you can review and update your profile at anytime by logging-in and visiting your personal account.

In addition, a parent can review or request deletion of any personal information we have about their child, or request that there be no further collection or use of their child’s information, by contacting us at info@drinkago.com.  We take steps to verify the identity of anyone requesting information about a child, to ensure that the person is in fact the child’s parent or guardian, and appreciate your cooperation with those steps.

Opt-Out

We communicate with our registered users and account holders on a regular basis via email.  For example, we may use your email address to confirm your request, to send you notice of payments, to send you information about changes to our products and services, and to send notices and other disclosures as required by law.  Generally, users cannot opt-out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional.

However, we do provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of:

  • receiving other types of communication from us, such as emails or updates regarding new services and products offered on or through our websites and any new features or services on our websites; and
  • sharing or disclosing your Personal Information with third-parties.

You may exercise your opt-out by contacting us at info@drinkago.com.  We will process your unsubscribe as soon as possible, but please be aware that in some circumstances you may receive a few more messages until your request is processed.  You also may opt-out of receiving such emails by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link within the text of the applicable email.

Forums, Chat Rooms, And Other Public Posting Areas

We may provide public areas on our websites, such as forums and chat rooms, where you can post information about yourself and others.  Please exercise discretion and use caution with respect to your information, especially in such public areas.  We do not control who reads postings on our websites, or how they may use or disclose such information.  If you choose to voluntarily disclose information on public portions of our websites, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others.  For example, if you post your email address or phone number, you may receive unsolicited messages.  PLEASE BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHEN DISCLOSING ANY INFORMATION ABOUT YOURSELF OR OTHERS IN PUBLIC AREAS OF OUR WEBSITES.  WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE OR DISCLOSURE OF SUCH INFORMATION.

Third-Party Websites And Advertisers

Our websites may contain links to third-party websites.  While we endeavor to work with third-parties that share our respect for user privacy, we are not responsible for the websites or privacy practices of such third-parties.  We may also use third-party advertisers, ad networks, and other advertising, marketing, and promotional companies, to serve advertisements on our websites.  Such third-parties may gather information about your visit to our websites or other websites, monitor your access to or market products or services to you, monitor the ads you view, click-on, or interact with, when they were delivered, and the screens and pages that they are on.

We do not endorse these parties, their content, or any products and services they offer.  You are responsible for knowing when you are leaving our website to visit a third-party website, and for reading and understanding the terms of use and privacy policy statements for each such third-party.

Protection of Information

No data transmissions over the Internet are completely secure.  Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or others over the Internet.  You transmit such information at your own risk.

Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems.  We use firewalls to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.  However, this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of such firewalls or secure server software.

If we learn of a breach of our security system or processes, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps.  By using our websites, or providing Personal Information to us through them, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of our websites.  In the event of a breach, we may post a notice on our websites or send you an email at the email address you provided.

YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS TO RECEIVE WRITTEN NOTICE OF SECURITY BREACHES UNDER APPLICABLE LAW OF YOUR JURISDICTION.

You can also help us protect information about you by:

  • using only secure web browsers;
  • employing common anti-virus and anti-malware tools on your system to keep it safe;
  • carefully logging out after using our websites;
  • using a strong password with a combination of letters and numbers;
  • changing your password often; and
  • by contacting us at info@drinkago.com if you feel your login and/or password have been compromised.

Assignment

You consent to our assignment of the information we have about you, including Personal Information, in the event that all or part of our assets are sold or acquired by another party, including all or substantially all of our websites or our top-level-domain, or in the event of a merger for the same.

Terms Of Use

Please read our Terms of Use to understand the terms that apply to your use of our websites.  By using our websites, you acknowledge that you have read our Terms of Use and consent to them.  You further affirm your consent by becoming a registered user, account holder or submitting content or materials to or through our websites.

California Residents – Your Privacy Rights

(As provided by California Civil Code Section 1798.83)

A California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (“California customer”) is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third-parties’ direct marketing purposes.  In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third-parties to whom personal information was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal information that were disclosed.

However, under the law, a business is not required to provide the above-described lists if the business adopts and discloses to the public (in its privacy policy statement) a policy of not disclosing customer’s personal information to third-parties for their direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, as long as the business maintains and discloses this policy.  Rather, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost free means to exercise that right.

As stated in our privacy policy statement, we do not share information with third-parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure -- typically by opting-in to receive information from a third-party.  To prevent disclosure of your personal information for use in direct marketing by a third-party, do not opt-in to such use when you provide personal information on our website.  Please note that whenever you opt-in to receive future communications from a third-party, your information will be subject to the third-party’s privacy policies and practices.  If you later decide that you do not want that third-party to use your information, you will need to contact the third-party directly, as we have no control over how third-parties use information.  You should always review the privacy policies and practices of any party that collects your information to determine how that entity will handle your information.

California customers may request further information about our compliance with this law by contacting us at info@drinkago.com.  Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this e-mail address.
