EFFECTIVE DATE: February 15th, 2021
At Crave Global Inc (“CRAVE”), we value our community. We believe in transparency and are committed to being upfront about our privacy practices.
This Policy is designed to assist you in understanding and making informed decisions when using the Site about how personal information about you may be obtained, used, shared, and disclosed to third parties by CRAVE. This Policy also describes how you can opt out of some uses of your personal information.
This Policy is current as of the Effective Date set forth above. We may change this Policy from time to time in our sole discretion. To let you know when we make changes to this Policy, we will amend the Effective Date. The new modified or amended Policy will apply from that new Effective Date, so please be sure to check back periodically. Your continued use of the Site after any change to this Policy will constitute your acceptance of the changes. CRAVE will not use your personally identifiable information, in a manner that is materially different than what was stated at the time it was collected, without your consent.
2. THE TYPE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW IT IS USED
“Personal information” is information that may be used to specifically identify or contact you, such as your name, postal address, email address, and telephone number, among other things. When you visit the Site, personal information about you is not collected unless you voluntarily provide it. If you provide personal information to us, CRAVE might receive additional information about you from other sources and combine that additional information with the personal information that you have provided. If you provide personal information such as your phone number or email address on the Site, the content of your communications, and your e-mail address, along with any other personal information provided, may be retained. You acknowledge and agree that by using the Site, information provide on the Site or directly to CRAVE may be redirected to a different distributor that is responsible for the territory where your project may reside. CRAVE has certain geographic restrictions any may not provide certain services outside of its territory, in accordance with its contractual obligations with vendors included on the Site..
In certain circumstances, CRAVE may request, or may allow or otherwise provide you an opportunity to submit, your personally identifiable information in connection with a transaction, feature, program, promotion or some other aspect of the Site. For example, you may provide your name, mailing/shipping address, email address, and phone number when using the Site or to pursue other services offered through the Site. Certain information may not be personally identifiable when standing alone, but may become so when combined with other information (e.g., email address and name). Whether or not you provide this information is your choice; however, in some instances this type of information may be required to participate in a particular activity, realize a benefit that the Site may offer, or gain access to certain information linked to the use of the Site.
The personally identifiable information that you submit to CRAVE is generally used to carry out your requests, respond to your inquiries, or better serve you, or is used in other ways naturally associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information. CRAVE may use this information to contact you later for a variety of reasons, such as for customer service, to provide you with information or services, or to set up transactions that you have requested or agreed to receive. We may use this information to provide you with marketing or promotional information for products or services of CRAVE or of CRAVE’s parent company, subsidiaries or other affiliated companies, including our vendors on the Site. We may use this information to communicate with you about content or other information that you have posted or shared with CRAVE via the Site, or with other users of the Site, or with service providers who use the Site. We may use this information with regard to your use of the Site and, in the discretion of CRAVE, with regard to changes to the Site or Site policies. We may also use this information for internal business purposes, or for purposes disclosed at the time you provide your information, or as otherwise set forth in this Policy. You may opt out from receiving future promotional information from CRAVE, or direct that CRAVE not share your information in the future with any affiliated companies or third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To opt out of receiving promotional offers simply unsubscribe via the email sent for that purpose.
In certain instances, CRAVE may also share your personally identifiable information with its third-party vendors who are performing functions on behalf of CRAVE, or on behalf of affiliated companies of CRAVE (e.g., vendors that process credit card orders, deliver merchandise, administer promotions, provide marketing or promotional assistance, analyze data, assist with customer service, and the like). In addition, CRAVE may share your personally identifiable information with participating sponsors of a program or promotion, and with third parties who assist CRAVE in using the content or other information that you have posted or shared with CRAVE via the Site. Further, CRAVE may share your personally identifiable information with third parties such as promotional partners of CRAVE, and persons or companies with whom CRAVE has marketing or other relationships, among others.
“Non-personal information” is information about you or your activities through which you cannot be personally identified. When you visit the Site, we may collect such information. Examples include the type of browser and operating system you are using, the type of device you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider, the pages you visit on the Site and how long you spend on each page, and the unique number assigned to your computer or Internet connection. This type of information can include certain personally identifiable information that has been de-identified (i.e., information that has been rendered anonymous). CRAVE and its third- party service providers may obtain non-personal information about you from information that you provide, either separately or together with your personally identifiable information. This type of information may be used for a variety of purposes, including monitoring use of and improving the Site, as well as for internal analysis.
The Site may utilize a standard technology called “cookies,” described in more detail below, to provide the Site’s personalization feature, and web server logs to collect information about how the Site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at the Site, and other websites visited just before your visit to the Site. This information may be collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information may be associated with you as an individual.
Non-personal information is used in a variety of ways, including to help analyze Site traffic, to understand customer needs and trends, to carry out targeted promotional activities, and to improve the services provided by CRAVE. CRAVE may use your non-personal information by itself, or we may aggregate it with information that CRAVE has obtained from others. CRAVE may share your non-personal information with its affiliated companies and third parties to achieve these objectives and others; however, this information is anonymous information that does not personally identify you. CRAVE may provide data analyses and certain non-personal information to third parties (who may in turn use this information to provide advertisements tailored to your interests), but this will not involve disclosing any of your personally identifiable information.
3. INFORMATION FROM THIRD PARTIES ABOUT YOU
CRAVE also may, from time to time, supplement the information we collect with outside records from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. CRAVE may combine the information we receive from those other sources with information we collect through the Site. In those cases, CRAVE will apply this Policy to any personally identifiable information received, unless otherwise specifically disclosed by CRAVE at the time you provide your personally identifiable information.
CRAVE is affiliated with other businesses and works closely with them. These businesses may offer promotions, or may sell items or services to you through CRAVE’s services. CRAVE may also provide services or sell products jointly with affiliated businesses. Due to the nature of our business model, when an affiliated business is associated with your transaction, we may share information that is related to such transaction with that affiliated business. CRAVE may share aggregated demographic information with business partners.
4. INFORMATION ABOUT SITE USE
In addition to any personally identifiable information or other information that you choose to provide to CRAVE via the Site, CRAVE and its third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies, now and hereafter devised, that automatically collect certain Site usage information whenever you visit or interact with the Site. This information may include your browser type, your operating system, the page served, the time, the source of a request, the preceding pages viewed by you, and other similar information. CRAVE may use this usage information for a variety of purposes, including to enhance or otherwise improve the Site. In addition, CRAVE may also collect your IP address or some other unique identifier for the particular device you use to access the Internet, as applicable (collectively, referred to herein as a “Device Identifier”). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer, and CRAVE may identify your device by its Device Identifier. When analyzed, usage information helps CRAVE determine how the Site is used, such as what types of visitors arrive at the Site, what type of content is most popular, what type of content you may find most relevant, and what types of visitors are interested in particular kinds of content and advertising. CRAVE may associate your Device Identifier or Site usage information with the personally identifiable information you provide, and may treat the combined information as personally identifiable information. Site usage information may be collected using various methods, such as web beacons, cookies, mobile device identifiers, and embedded scripts, among other methods.
