The Information We Collect
A. IP Addresses
An internet protocol address is automatically assigned to User’s computer when User accesses the internet, and is used by web servers to identify User’s computer. When visitors access our Site, we may log the IP address; however, the visitor’s identity remains anonymous to us. We log the address for system administration and for auditing the use of the Site. We may also use the IP addresses to collect statistical information for marketing and other purposes.
C. Web beacons
Web beacons are small files that we may place on the Site, which count the number of unique users that have visited a specific page on the Site and the number of times the page has been displayed. This information is collected only in the aggregate and is generally not linked to any personally identifiable information (except as may otherwise be provided for in The Way We Use Information, Monitoring below).
In general, you can browse our Web site(s) without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We are, however, able to determine your IP address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Web site, to measure the use of our Web site and to improve the content of our Web site. In short we use your IP to gather aggregate demographic information. There are a few places where we give you an opportunity to provide us your personal information. This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on our web site, such as ordering a product, entering a contest or sweepstakes, filling out a survey, sending us feedback, requesting catalogs, samples, or registering online, we may ask you to provide certain information. If you choose to share any personal information with us, you will see that the amount and type of personal information we request depend on how you use our Web site. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, we may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), E-mail address, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal identifying information. When ordering products on our web site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
The Way We Use Information
Favre Foundation Gear Online may use any personally identifiable information you provide, unless otherwise indicated, and we will not provide your personally identifiable information to any other entity unless authorized by you. Anonymous data collected using cookies and web beacons may be analyzed in the aggregate to determine collective user characteristics, to understand user traffic patterns, sales information and user behavior on the Site. Such information also may be shared in the aggregate with third parties for advertising purposes, to enhance our Site, to enhance our products and services, and to analyze how and where best to use our resources. We must release your credit card information to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment for products purchased on our Web site; release your address information to the delivery service to deliver products that you ordered; and provide order information to third parties that help us provide customer service. We will not give or sell this information to any other company for its use in marketing or solicitation.
Although Favre Foundation Gear Online is under no obligation to monitor the Site, we may monitor, store, review and disclose to third parties any information obtained on the Site as may be needed or requested to satisfy any applicable governmental law, regulation or proceeding. Additionally, we may use IP addresses to identify a particular user if we believe it needed to enforce compliance with these terms or to protect our Company, Site, or customers.
Updating and Correcting Your Personal Information
At User’s request, Favre Foundation Gear Online will make reasonable efforts to update, change or delete any personally identifiable information User may have earlier provided via the Site. A user interface is also provided for a user to make these changes on their own. User understands that to enforce these terms, resolve disputes, or provide information to satisfy applicable governmental laws, regulations or proceedings, Favre Foundation Gear Online may need to retain User’s personally identifiable information in its files. Additionally, User understands that User’s personally identifiable information may be retained in residual back-up files that are a function of our network’s back-up systems.

Your Choice on Collection and Use of Your Information

If you do not wish to receive further information from Favre Foundation Gear Online you can contact us through our contact us page and tell us that you do not want to receive future communications. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed, however, because we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on our Web site. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without some residual information because of backups.
We will encourage our service partners to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your personal information by our service partners is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners, and is not subject to our control. The Favre Foundation Gear Online Web site may contain links to other non-Favre Foundation Gear Online Web sites. Favre Foundation Gear Online is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites and you should exercise your best judgment when sharing personal information on these Web sites.
Our Commitment to Security of Your Personal Information
We want you to have continuing trust in Favre Foundation Gear Online and in our products and services and, so, we have put in place reasonable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure your personal information.
In order to most efficiently serve you, credit card transactions and order fulfillment are handled by established third party banking, processing agents and distribution institutions. They receive the information needed to verify and authorize your credit card or other payment information and to process and ship your order.
The SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the most powerful encryption available on the Internet. This means that any information related to your credit card is encoded when being sent to us, so no one else is able to read it. You know that you are entering a secure area when the URL to the left of the colon changes from http to https. Also, your browser may have a special symbol, like a key or a lock.
Having a secure server takes the risk out of your credit card transactions. We also do all order processing on software that is separate from the Internet, so there is no danger of anyone gaining access to your order information. WE DO NOT KEEP ANY OF YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION ON FILE IN OUR INTERNET DATABASE. ONCE YOUR ORDER IS PROCESSED, THE CREDIT CARD NUMBER YOU PROVIDED IS PURGED FROM OUR ONLINE SYSTEM.
While Favre Foundation Gear Online tries to prevent third party, non-affiliate access to personally identifiable information, User understands that internet communications may not be secure. In view of the foregoing, Favre Foundation Gear Online cannot warrant that User’s personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to or accessed by parties other than those authorized under these terms and conditions. User agrees that Favre Foundation Gear Online will not be liable for such disclosures of User’s personally identifiable information.
Privacy of Children
The Site is not to be used by anyone under the age of eighteen (18), and any child under such age should not provide personally identifiable information. Favre Foundation Gear Online will not knowingly collect or use personally identifiable information from any child under such age.
