It is Quincy Tea Party’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Quincy Tea Party collects non-personally-identifying 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. Quincy Tea Party’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Quincy Tea Party’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Quincy Tea Party may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Quincy Tea Party also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Quincy Tea Party does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to Quincy Tea Party’s websites choose to interact with Quincy Tea Party in ways that require Quincy Tea Party to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Quincy Tea Party gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Quincy Tea Party are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Quincy Tea Party collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Quincy Tea Party. Quincy Tea Party does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Quincy Tea Party may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Quincy Tea Party may monitor the most popular parts of the Quincy Tea Party.com site. Quincy Tea Party may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Quincy Tea Party does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Quincy Tea Party 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 Quincy Tea Party’s behalf or to provide services available at Quincy Tea Party’s websites, and (ii) that 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 Quincy Tea Party’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Quincy Tea Party will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Quincy Tea Party discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Quincy Tea Party believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Quincy Tea Party, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Quincy Tea Party website and have supplied your email address, Quincy Tea Party may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Quincy Tea Party and our products. We primarily use our e-mail, blog and newsletters to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. 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 in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Quincy Tea Party takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
