Effective Date: [Insert date Policy is Posted to the Website]

Welcome to American Dekotora.

The American Dekotora team values your business. Not only is our team committed to providing the best music retail experience through our unique in-store music cart, but we also make every effort to protect your privacy as an American Dekotora customer. To this end, we have created the American Dekotora Privacy Policy in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations in an effort to best protect your personal information.

WHAT DOES THIS POLICY CONTAIN?

This Privacy Policy addresses five main areas:

  1. Terms of Use and Modification of the Privacy Policy;
  2. Collection, Use, and Sharing of Data;
  3. Protection of Data and Applicable Governing Laws;
  4. Retention and Deletion of Data; and
  5. Contact Information.

As your read through this Privacy Policy, you may come across the term “Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII.” PII is defined as customer information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.

If at any point you have a question about your privacy or this policy, we invite you to contact our team at americandekotora@gmail.com

A. TERMS OF USE AND MODIFICATION OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY 1. Terms of Use

As a customer, we ask that you read our Privacy Policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

Prior to submitting any content on American Dekotora’s website, we ask that you please read and review this Policy. By submitting content to American Dekotora, you agree to abide and be bound by this Privacy Policy. Should you not agree to terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not submit any content and cease use of American Dekotora’s website.

2. Modifications to the Privacy Policy

With the advancement of technology, American Dekotora seeks to continually improve both its product, as well as the means by which we protect our customers’ information. To best achieve this aim, American Dekotora reserves the right to modify or amend this Privacy Policy at any time. However, you can be assured that should it be necessary to do so, we will always do so in accordance with industry and the proscribed standards of state, federal, and international jurisdictions. Furthermore, the American Dekotora team commits to notifying you of any material changes to this Privacy Policy that are less protective of customer information prior to such changes taking effect.

We may notify you of these changes to the Privacy Policy either by email, notices on this website, or by other means deemed to be industry standard or proscribed by statute. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.

B. COLLECTION, USE, AND SHARING OF DATA 1. What Personal Information Does American Dekotora Collect?

Through your general use of our website, American Dekotora may collect and/or receive information about you that reveals your specific identity, or is directly tied to your specific identity, including, but not limited to:

  1. Full name;
  2. Location;
  3. Contact information;
  4. Browser type and version;
  5. IP address; and
  6. User preference data.

At American Dekotora’s in-person mobile carts, we may engage in the practice of collecting and/or retaining the following anonymized data about your browsing and purchase habits:

  1. Gender;
  2. Age;
  3. In-store browsing habits;

This anonymized data is collected to allow the American Dekotora team to adjust their product offering to best meet the changing needs and music tastes of its clientele.

Additionally, the American Dekotora team may engage in video recording at or near in- person mobile carts. These recordings may be: (1) broadcast in real time via social media services including (but not limited to) “Facebook Live” or Instagram, or (2) stored in a recorded format consistent with the data storage policies contained in this document. Video collected during these events may be used for marketing and research purposes. The American Dekotora team will display a conspicuous notice while any recording devices are engaged, and any customers or other individuals within the proximity to a video recording device may have their likeness captured and/or broadcast on the Internet for these purposes.

2. What Credit Card or Payment Information is Collected?

American Dekotora contracts with the company Square as a third-party payment processor to process product payment at the mobile music cart. American Dekotora does not gather your personal credit card information. Rather, that information is gathered, stored and processed by Square. We encourage you to read the Square’s privacy policy to find out how your information may be gathered, used, and disclosed. This information is available at: https://squareup.com/legal/privacy.
