Last updated: 3/20/2019

 

Welcome to https://feetures.com/ (the “Website”). Flagship Brands, LLC (“Feetures,” “we,” or “us”), either directly or through one of its affiliates, operates the Website.

 

We recognize that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we respect your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes what information we may collect from you, how we collect that information, how we use that information, and the choices you have regarding your information. By using our website or providing information to us in other ways, you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy.  If you do not consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, do not use our services, access the Website, or provide us with any information.

 

WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED AND STORED?

 

Information You Provide

 

We collect and store information that you provide to us through our websites, through our customer service representatives, at events, through mobile applications, through marketing efforts, including contests, sweepstakes and events, and through third parties, or any other way we interact with you.

 

You may choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of certain capabilities of this website or other services we may offer. For example, you must provide certain personal information in order to place an order or to register for an account on or through this website.

 

We may request, collect and store some or all of the following types of personal information (“Personal Information”): name, billing address, shipping address, e-mail address, telephone number, financial and payment information, such as credit card number and expiration date, gender, personal interests, birthday, information about a third party you provide when we ship an order. We may also maintain a record of your product interest and purchases.

 

If you access our website or mobile applications with your log-in credentials from a social networking site (e.g. Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter) or if you otherwise agree to associate your account with us with a social networking site, we may receive personal information about you from such social networking site, in accordance with the terms of use and privacy policy of the social networking site. We may add this to the information we have already collected from you via other interactions.

 

 

Automatically Collected Information

 

We collect and store certain other non-personally identifiable information automatically whenever you interact with us (“Anonymous Information”). For example, we may collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address and browser information and reference site domain name when you visit this website and analyze this data for preferences, trends, and site usage statistics.  We may also collect information by using cookies, web beacons, and related technologies.  "Cookies" are small text files that a website sends to a user's hard drive through the browser for data storage. Most browsers accept cookies automatically but allow you to disable them. By disabling or otherwise rejecting cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings on this website. We recommend that you leave cookies "turned on" so that we can offer you a better shopping experience on this website.

 

We may aggregate, evaluate, and use Anonymous Information in order to improve the Website and our business, analyze trends, administer the Website, track customer website navigation, gather broad demographic information, and make the Website better for you.  For example, we may use Anonymous Information to: (i) customize account pages for you, (ii) track user visits and account features, (iii) determine what features and pages are most frequently requested or visited, and (iv) save your password so you do not have to provide it each time you visit the Website.

 

Information Collected from Third Parties

 

We use third-party companies to provide Internet data hosting and to help us measure and determine how visitors use our website and the effectiveness of our website and promotions in order to help us improve and optimize our website and the products and services we offer. We also use third-party companies to serve advertisements (banners or links) on our behalf across the Internet. These companies use tracking technologies (including cookies and pixel tags) to collect non-identifiable information about your visits to our website and your interactions with our products and services in order to provide tailored advertisements based on your interests and browsing of our website (remarketing) on our behalf and on behalf of other advertisers across the Internet. This information varies and is controlled by the third party or as authorized by you via your privacy settings at that service.

 

We use third-party audience data (such as age, gender, and interests) to better understand and advertise to audiences that visit our website. We do not use or associate personally identifiable information with remarketing lists, cookies, data feeds, or other anonymous identifiers.  We do not control, supervise, or respond to requests about how the third parties providing your information process your personal data, and any information request regarding the disclosure of such information should be directed to the relevant third parties. 

 

Our websites currently do not have a mechanism to recognize “Do Not Track” signals, but several of the third-party companies who utilize these cookies or beacons enable you to opt out of this advertising. If you wish to opt out of receiving this third-party interest-based advertising, you may obtain more information at http://bit.ly/1x2GnZg Please note this does not opt you out of receiving marketing communications from us.

 

In addition, some of our e-mail communications to you may include a "click-through URL" linked to a particular page on the Website. By clicking on one of these URLs, you will automatically enter our website and we may collect information related to the "click-through." You may avoid having this information collected by not clicking on URL links in our e-mail communications.

 

We also may use a variety of retail analytics tools in our stores for operational and marketing purposes, such as measuring and analyzing traffic patterns. These tools may collect data from sensors, including video cameras, smartphone detectors, Wi-Fi networks, or other devices, to improve your in-store experience.

 

Information from Other Sources

 

We may collect information about you from third-party sources and information that is publicly available. For example, information you submit in a public forum (e.g., a blog, chat room, or social network site) can be read, collected, or used by us and others, and could be used to personalize your experience. You are responsible for the information you choose to submit in these instances. Another example is that we may receive demographic information about you from a third party to make our service and marketing efforts more efficient and personalized for you.

 

To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may receive additional information about you, such as demographic data or fraud detection information, from third party service providers and/or partners, and combine it with information we have about you.

 

HOW IS INFORMATION USED?

 

We use the Personal Information we collect to conduct our business, communicate with you, and provide great products, services, and experiences. We will never use your Personal Information in a way that is prohibited by applicable law.  We or third-party service providers we engage, may use the information to provide the products and services that you have ordered or requested, to process and ship orders, to send order and shipping confirmations, to provide customer service, to respond to your comments, questions or complaints, to personalize your experiences, to analyze your preferences and shopping habits, to analyze trends and statistics, to administer and fulfill our contests and other promotions, to analyze and improve the Website and our products and services, and to send you marketing communications and other information regarding our products, services, marketing, or special events. We also use your information for business purposes such as security, payment processing, analytics, operations, fraud detection, reporting, making back-ups, and legal compliance.

From time to time, we may employ companies and individuals to perform certain services on our behalf.  These third-party service providers may have access to Personal Information, but only to the extent required to perform their assigned roles, and they may not use your Personal Information for any other reason.   Some services provided by those third parties may include: operating the Website, hosting the Website, providing the products and services you request, authorization and processing of your payments, product fulfillment, fraud protection and credit risk reduction, product customization, marketing and promotional material distribution, loyalty program management, promotions fulfillment, web site evaluation, data analysis and, where applicable, data cleansing.
