Bitch New York recognizes privacy and security as being a concern for most individuals accessing the Internet. Whether you're buying one of our products, or just browsing our site, we want to make you comfortable with our privacy practices and the security measures we take to protect your personal information.
What Information Do We Collect?
When a visitor creates an account and/or places an order with us, Bitch New York may collect personally identifiable information, including name, address, e-mail address, and phone numbers. We do not require this information to obtain access to any part of our public site, but do require it if you wish to place an order, or set up an account.
Our web server logs collect the domain names IP addresses of visitors to our Web site, the type of browser and operating system used to access our site, and the date and time you access our site. This information is aggregated to measure number of visits, average time spent on our Web site, pages viewed, etc. We use this information to measure the use of our site and to improve the content of our site.
What about Cookies?
BitchNewYork.com uses cookie technology to enhance the shopping experience on this site. A cookie is a small data file that is stored by your Web browser on your computer. Cookies are used on the site to maintain the contents of your shopping cart, and to identify registered shoppers. Please refer to the section on How To Enable Cookies for more information.
How is my information used?
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to better serve the needs of our customers, such as facilitating order processing and to enable us to contact you if a problem arises with your order. We need to know who you are in order to verify the credit card information you have sent us and to conduct a thorough background check of you or your company. We collect several pieces of personal information from you in order to complete this verification process.
The non-personal information that we collect from you is used for internal purposes to make your experience with our site more enjoyable. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis so as to prevent identification of personal information relating to any one individual.
How Is Your Information Protected?
When you place an order or provide personal information, your transactions are encrypted for security. Encryption scrambles the information in your purchase, including your credit card number, so this information can only be viewed by Bitch New York. Bitch New York uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology, the highest level of security on the Internet. The SSL protocol provides server authentication, data integrity, and privacy on the Web. This security measure helps ensure that no impostors, eavesdroppers, or vandals get your personal information. SSL not only encrypts your personal and financial information transmitted, including credit card information, but also verifies the identity of the server and that the original message arrives safely at its destination.
How can I correct or change my personal information?
If you have a Bitch New York account, you can update the information you entered by logging into your account.
What about my child's privacy?
This site is intended for use by persons over the age of 18. Bitch New York will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 18. If Bitch New York obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a person under the age of 18, that information will be immediately deleted from our system. Bitch New York encourages parents to take an active role in their children's use of the Internet, and to inform them of the potential dangers of providing information about themselves over the Internet.
