Your privacy is critically important to us -- maybe even more important to us than to you. We design our sites and services to serve you. We want you to find us when you need us, follow us through social media when it suits you, and interact with us as needed. Your information is not treated like a company asset that belongs to us to be used for our financial gain. It belongs to you, and we will treat it the same way a lawyer treats attorney client privilege – we use it for your benefit to improve your experience with us and our products.
At Cool Stuff we follow fundamental principles:
Cool Stuff, LLC (“Cool Stuff”) operates several websites, including coolstuff-llc.com, vintage-bling.com, hairproductsolutions.com, and bib-buddy.com. This policy applies to all our sites and business divisions.
Like most website operators, Cool Stuff collects certain anonymous information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Cool Stuff's purpose in collecting such anonymous information is to better understand how visitors use its websites. Cool Stuff does not share this information with anyone outside the company, and limits access to employees who need the information to perform their responsibilities pursuant to the company's business needs.
Cool Stuff’s blog administrators may collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of users leaving comments on those blogs of ours they administer. Cool Stuff only discloses commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible to and stored by the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to Cool Stuff's websites choose to interact with Cool Stuff in ways that require Cool Stuff to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cool Stuff gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, those who engage in commercial transactions with Cool Stuff, such as purchasing products, are asked to provide personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Cool Stuff collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cool Stuff. Cool Stuff does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Cool Stuff may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Cool Stuff may monitor the most popular blogs on the site or use spam-screening software to help identify spam. However, Cool Stuff does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Cool Stuff discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Cool Stuff’s behalf or to provide services available at Cool Stuff’s websites, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Cool Stuff’s websites, you consent to Cool Stuff’s sharing of such information with them. Cool Stuff will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying or personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Cool Stuff discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only as is required by law (e.g. in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request), or when Cool Stuff believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cool Stuff. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it without your identifying information in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Cool Stuff takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Comments and other content submitted to our anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
