TooQt.com is just
as fed up with SPAM and JUNK emails as you are.
We value our visitors privacy just as much as
we value our own. Don't you just hate when you've been to a site,
and suddenly you get slammed with junk in your inbox?! Well, it's
not gonna happen here at tooQt! This Privacy Statement is put together
so that we can demonstrate our commitment to you, and let you know
exactly what is going on at tooqt.com.
Our information privacy policies are made to help us serve you better
and while at the same time keeping very strict security standards.
For each visit to our site, we automatically recognize your IP address.
However, we do not recognize your e-mail address unless you provide
it to us (for example, by emailing us with a question or comments,
or by placing an order with us).
We do not sell or provide to others our visitors'
The only time you might hear from us will
be in the event of:
1) as follow-ups to an order you placed
2) in reply to comments or questions from you
3) to notify our customers of tooQt.com's new products or special
offers. If you don't want to know about our special offers or new
products, you can "opt out"
and simply email us (address listed below) to let us know, and we
won't bother you with that. (FYE we send out an occasional postcard
or email you about
12 times a year with special offers). Below, you'll find out about
exactly how we use the information you entrust to us.
Information Collected Online
TooQt is the sole owner of the information
collected on tooQt.
TooQt collects information from our users at different points on our
For instance, when you go to our shopping cart, you might sign up
to create a customer account. However, this is not necessary in order
to purchase items
on our site. When you place an order with us, we request information
on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name,email
& shipping address) and financial information (such as credit
expiration date etc.). This information is used for billing purposes
and to fill your order. If we have trouble processing the order, the
information is used to contact you.
We store information that we collect through cookies & log
files to create a profile of our users. A profile is stored information
that we keep on individual users that details their viewing preferences.
This profile is used to tailor a user's visit to our website.We
do not share profiles of our users with third parties. We do not use
the information to direct marketing promotions. Our
site automatically captures IP addresses. We use IP addresses to help
diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. A
cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information
about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally
to simulate a continuous connection to that site. This makes it more
convenient for users by allowing them to visit pages within a site
without having to reintroduce themselves with each mouse click. Contrary
to popular fears and misconceptions, cookies were not created to spy
on or otherwise invade the privacy of Internet users. Cookies contain
only information that users volunteer, and they do not have the capability
of infiltrating a user's hard drive and sneaking away with personal
information. The simple function of a cookie is that of helping the
user navigate a web site with as little obstruction as possible. Cookies
are small data structures used by a web site (server) to deliver data
to a web client (user); request that the client store the information;
and in certain circumstances, return the information to the web site.
Web sites can thus "remember" information about users to facilitate
their preferences for a particular site and allow the use of user
passwords. The web site may deliver one or more cookies to the client.
The client stores cookie data in one or more flat files on its local
Like most standard Web site servers, we use log files. This includes
internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider
(ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number
of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement
in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate
use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable
About Links to Other Sites
Our site contains links to other sites. TooQt does not control
the information collection of sites that can be reached through links
from www.tooqt.com. If you have questions about the data collection
procedures of linked sites, please contact those companies directly.
Public Forums Reminder
This site sometimes makes message boards, photo albums and forums
available to its users. Please remember that any information, or image,
that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. TooQt
reserves the right to deny,
or terminate access to, or delete any posting that is offensive &
in language as well as in image view.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need
to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have
a good-faith belief
that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding,
a court order or legal process served on our Website.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information.
When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information
is protected both online and off-line. When our registration form/order
form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card
number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted
and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry
- SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon
on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft
Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open,
when users are just "surfing". While we
use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online,
we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line.
All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information
mentioned above, is restricted in our office. Only employees who need
the information to perform a specific job, (for example, our billing
clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to
personally identifiable information. Also, all our employees are kept
up to date on our security and privacy practices.
Finally, the servers that store personally
identifiable information are in a secure environment in a locked facility.
If a users peronally identifiable information changes (such as zip
code,phone,email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires
our service, we provide a way to correct update or delete/deactivate
users' personally identifiable information.
You can email us or contact us by phone or postal mail at the
contact information listed below.
Notification of Changes
to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem
appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect,
how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information
in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we
will notify users by posting a notice on our Web site for 30 days.
