Scope of Policy
Non-Personal Identifiable Information
When you visit our website, our blog, or use our applications, with the help of our third party authorised agents, we may collect certain anonymous information about your visit. For example, when you browse our website or our blog we may monitor statistics including but not limited to the number of people that visit these websites, peak hours of visits, from which domain our visitors come (e.g., aol.com, hotmail.com) and which browsers people use to visit these websites (e.g., Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer), geographical information, etc. In addition, we may also collect information about your browsing behaviour, such as the date and time you accessed the website, the areas or pages of the website that you visit, the amount of time you spend viewing the website, the number of times you return to the website and other click-stream data. All of this information helps us to build a better experience for you.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information is any information about you as an individual, such as your name, address, telephone number, credit card number and billing information, birth date, email, profile information, and purchase history. Whether or not you provide your personally identifiable information to us is completely up to you, but if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to use some of our services.
Below are some examples of when we may collect personally identifiable information from you:
When you place an order through our website, we require that you provide your name, email, shipping/billing address, phone number, credit card number and its expiration date in order to process and track your order. We may also maintain a record of your product purchases. The information you provide is used to process your order and ensure it is delivered to you. We collect your email address and telephone number so we can let you know details about your order and when it has been shipped.
Credit Card and Payment Details
PayPal, Stripe or similar online payment processing options processes credit card and payment details. Kintsugi Space does not store your payment details.
We use a third party to fulfil online orders which means your order details will be passed to this third party. These details include order number, name, email address, telephone number, billing address, shipping address, the contents and value of the order, the date and time the order was placed. This information is used to identify the best delivery method and to ensure your order is delivered to you as requested.
Sign-up for the Kintsugi Newsletter
You can sign up on our website and social media outlets to receive promotional emails from us. If you sign up to receive our emails, we will ask for your name and email address. If you no longer wish to receive marketing emails from us, you can unsubscribe at the bottom of every email, or you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can unsubscribe for you.
When you use one of our applications on Facebook, we will request your permission to access certain personally identifiable information on Facebook, such as your name, profile picture, gender, networks, user ID, list of friends, and other profile information. Depending on the application, you may have the opportunity to post reviews, questions, answers and other content to the application. You can change certain settings relating to these applications through your account and privacy settings on Facebook.
Competitions, Polls and Promotions
If you contact us to give us feedback or ask questions about our website or any products, we may store your communications, including any personally identifiable information you include in them, so we can effectively respond to you.
Why we collect Personally Identifiable Information
We collect this information to serve you better and to provide you with a customised experience while using our website. We may use your personally identifiable information to:
– fulfil a request from you, such as to send you letters, catalogues, promotional emails or email notifications
– fulfil and deliver your orders
– tell you about our new products services and offers
– respond to your comments, feedback or questions
– contact you if necessary while processing an order
– generate web analytics to compile user data for marketing purposes.
If you would rather not receive promotional emails from us, please see the section titled “Opting Out” below.
Additional information on Personally Identifiable Information
We may also combine the personally identifiable information you provide us with other personal information about you (such as demographic and past purchase information) from our records and from other sources, such as address update services. We may use this combined information for future marketing initiatives and to help us improve our website presentation, our blog, our applications, and your overall shopping experience. We may share aggregate data about our customers with third parties, including advertisers and marketing partners. This information does not identify individual customers.
On occasion, we may also share a portion of our postal mailing list (which includes our customers’ names and email addresses) with other companies or organisations who want to market products or services to you. We may also share your name, postal address and transactional information (including information about your past purchases but not any payment information) with third parties for marketing purposes, unless you direct us not to (see “Opting Out” section below). We do not ever rent or sell your email address with these organisations or with other third parties for marketing purposes.
We may also share your personally identifiable information with third parties that perform services for us, such as our affiliates, advertisers, partners, potential business partners, vendors, and other unaffiliated entities. These companies and individuals are hired to perform functions on our behalf, such as fulfilling and processing orders, processing credit card payments, performing data and marketing analysis, and providing customer support. While such third parties may be provided with access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their function, they may not use or disclose such data for any other purpose. Additionally, our service providers are contractually required to maintain all the information collected for us in strict confidence.
For fraud protection and compliance with law, we may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, that we deem necessary.
Information Contained In User Comments
Any information you submit in a user comment to be posted on our website (such as comments on our blog, reviews or comments, questions or answers), including any personally identifiable information, will not be treated as confidential and may be publicly disclosed.
Our applications may include features that can provide you with location-based information if you tell us where you are (i.e., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location). If you want to deactivate this feature, please contact your carrier for information on how you can disable location services on your mobile device.
Technologies We Use
Cookies, Web Server Logs and Web Beacons
Cookies are small text files that websites send to your computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings in your browser. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies and how to restrict or disable certain cookies.

In conjunction with obtaining information through cookies, our web servers may log details such as your operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone in which your device is located. The web server logs also may record information such as the address of the web page that linked you to our site and the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet.
To control which web servers collect this information, we may place tags on our web pages called “web beacons.” These are computer instructions that link web pages to particular web servers and their cookies.

To opt out of receiving these alerts and updates, you may uninstall the applicable mobile application from your mobile device.
Protecting Children’s Privacy
Our website is not intended for children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children.

If you are under 13 and would like to make a purchase, please ask a parent or guardian to place the order for you.
Protecting Your Security
We work in accordance with industry standards to protect the security of your personal information both online and offline. Personal identifiable information is stored on computer servers in a controlled environment that is reasonably protected from unauthorised misuse or disclosure. We use available technology and other techniques to implement systems such as firewalls, and/or encryption to secure marketing data transfers.
Orders placed on our website are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, an industry standard that is used by vendors to ensure the security of online business. It negotiates and employs the essential functions of mutual authentication, data encryption, and data integrity for secure transactions.
We take special steps to safeguard your personal information and since your password is protected, only you can access your account information. We recommend that you keep your password private and always sign-off of your account and close your browser when you are finished shopping. If you have any questions about security on our website, please Contact Us at email@example.com.
Links To Other Websites
Our website may provide links to other websites for your convenience and information. These websites may operate independently from us. Linked sites may have their own privacy notices or policies, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. To the extent, any linked websites you visit are not owned or controlled by us, we are not responsible for the sites’ content, any use of the sites, or the privacy practices of the sites.
If you would like to opt out of receiving promotional emails from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions located at the bottom of each email.

If you would like to opt out of our social networking application, please remove or delete our social media application from your social networking account, following the instructions from the social network.
We are not responsible for notices that are not labelled or sent improperly, or do not have complete information. We will process your request within 30 days of the date we receive your request, but you may, in the meantime, receive previously scheduled emails, mail or calls from us. Once you have opted out, you do not need to do so again.
Please note that we may still use your personal information (and may share your information with our service providers) to provide you with services, including sending you administrative and transaction-related emails, relating to your online shopping needs and your other activity on our website.
