What Personal Information About Customers Does cyberMIND
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize
and continually improve your shopping experience at cyberMIND.
Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us
We receive and store any information you enter on our Web
site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide
certain information, but then you might not be able to take
advantage of many of our features. We use the information
that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests,
customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores,
and communicating with you.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever
you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we
use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information
when your Web browser accesses cyberMIND. A number of companies
offer utilities designed to help you visit Web sites anonymously.
Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized
experience at cyberMIND if we cannot recognize you, we want
you to be aware that these tools exist.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often
receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from cyberMIND
if your computer supports such capabilities.
Information from Other Sources
For reasons such as improving personalization of our service
(for example, providing better product recommendations or
special offers that we think will interest you), we might
receive information about you from other sources and add it
to our account information. We also sometimes receive updated
delivery and address information from our shippers or other
sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your
next purchase or communication more easily.
What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to
your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable
our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features
such as your shopping preferences and storage of items in
your Shopping Cart between visits.
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 cyberMIND's
coolest features, and we recommend that you leave them turned
Does cyberMIND Share the Information It Receives?
No. Information about our customers is an important part of
our business, and we are not in the business of selling it
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions
on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering
packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive
information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing
marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and
providing customer service. They have access to personal information
needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for
Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of cyberMIND customers
on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not
give that business your name and address.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy
stores or assets. In such transactions, customer information
generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also,
in the unlikely event that cyberMIND, or substantially all
of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course
be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of cyberMIND and Others
We release account and other personal information when we
believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce
or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect
the rights, property, or safety of cyberMIND, our users, or
others. This includes exchanging information with other companies
and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
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.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during
transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software,
which encrypts information you input.
We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers
when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire
credit card number to the appropriate credit card company
during order processing.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access
to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off
when finished using a shared computer.
