Privacy Policy Notice
Last Updated on May 17th, 2016
I. Personally-Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Torrid Technologies, Inc. (also referred to herein as “Torrid Tech”) may collect two different types of information, Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”). PII is information that identifies you as an individual – for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card information, billing address and shipping information. Non-PII is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses, user behavior data from web interaction metrics tools and other information that does not reveal your specific identity. PII and Non-PII may be collected anytime you access or use a Torrid Tech website. PII and Non-PII may also be collected by Torrid Tech during in-person discussions, telephone conversations, and electronic or other written communications. Torrid Tech also collects information via cookies; blocking cookies may render you unable to access certain Torrid Tech products, services, or websites.
Torrid Tech uses PII to respond to your inquiries, provide you with services you have requested, keep you informed of services Torrid Tech thinks may be of interest to you, and otherwise personalize your experience with Torrid Tech, and other reasons. Torrid Tech does not sell or lease PII about you to others. Torrid Tech may share PII with Torrid Tech affiliates and third parties contracting with Torrid Tech to provide services to you, e.g., financial institutions or a mail house to mail you a package. Torrid Tech may also share PII when required by law, or when you have expressly requested Torrid Tech to do so. Torrid Tech reserves the right to disclose and use your PII if Torrid Tech believes it is necessary to: (a) respond to legal process, e.g., a subpoena; (b) respond to a law enforcement agency’s request; (c) enforce the Terms; or (d) protect the rights, privacy, safety, property, or operations of Torrid Tech or third parties;
Because Non-PII does not personally identify You, Torrid Tech reserves the right to use and disclose to third parties Non-PII for any purpose.
Torrid Tech maintains reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to protect PII from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Torrid Tech enforces its Privacy Policy via self-assessment.
Torrid Tech reserves the right to change this privacy notice, which changes will become effective upon posting of the revised notice, or upon emailing of the changes to You at the email address You provided to Torrid Tech, or as required by law.
II. Links to or From Other Sites.
Except where expressly stated by Torrid Tech, Torrid Tech is not affiliated or associated with operators of any third party websites that link to or are linked from any Torrid Tech-maintained website. Torrid Tech disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy or content of information found on third party websites that link to or are linked from any Torrid Tech website. Torrid Tech disclaims any responsibility for the security of any information (including without limitation credit card and personally identifiable information (“PII”)) that you may provide to any third party. Torrid Tech reserves the right, at any time and in its sole and absolute discretion, to block links to any Torrid Tech-maintained website through technological or other means without prior notice.
III. Information; Registration; User Names and Passwords
As a Torrid Tech website user, You will be required to create an account with Torrid Tech. You warrant that the information you provide Torrid Tech is truthful and accurate, and that you are not impersonating another person. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any password you may use to access your Torrid Tech account, and you agree not to transfer your password or User name, or lend or otherwise transfer your use of or access to your account, to any third party. You are fully responsible for all transactions with, and information conveyed to, Torrid Tech under your account. You agree to immediately notify Torrid Tech of any unauthorized use of your password or User name or any other breach of security related to your account.
