Here at COUTURME, we take your privacy very seriously, and we’re committed to protecting your personal information.
When registering for a COUTURME account, you will provide us with a valid e-mail address, your first/last name, password of your choosing, and telephone number. Depending on the Services you decide to use, we may collect additional information, such as billing and payment information, billing/mailing address, social media information, date of birth, gender, and things such as cookies/usage data. We receive and store any information you enter into our website or give us in any other way. You may choose not to provide us with certain information, but this may limit your ability to use some of our Services.
You may also choose to interact with other users through our Services. As a result, other users may see information connected with your account, such as your shop pages and policies, items you list for sale or have sold, ratings and reviews, body measurements you provide us, and comments you post on our community forum.
COUTURME is not responsible for any personal information you decide to disclose on our community forum, and we encourage you to use discretion when posting. The posts and comments you make on our community forum are not private. This means, by default, they are not deleted from our servers and will remain accessible after you disable or delete your account.
COUTURME also automatically receives information from your browser or mobile device (such as your IP address or other unique identifiers, cookies, log files, etc.) when you visit our website or use our Services. We use this information to keep our website and Services secure, improve our website and Services, and provide a personalized experience for members and visitors.
The main reason we collect personal information is to provide our users with a streamlined and customized experience when using our Services. This includes handling payments, facilitating interactions with other users, contacting you directly about offers or other information, optimizing traffic on our website, data analytics, registration and authentication, etc.
COUTURME will limit our employees’ access to your personal information to only those whom we believe reasonably need that information to do their jobs or to provide our Services to you.
By using certain Services, you are directing us to share your personal information with another user to facilitate your use of those Services. For example, when you purchase a pattern created by another user, you consent to us sharing your email information with the Seller so that you can receive your purchased item.
By using our Services, you agree to respect the privacy of other users. This means limiting the use of information (you receive from other users) to communications or transactions facilitated by COUTURME for using our Services, and not for unsolicited messages or unauthorized transactions.
We work closely with affiliated businesses and/or third parties to make certain Services available to you, and we may share customer information with those businesses to better service your needs and transactions or provide a better user experience. These third parties may include, for example, Facebook, 2Checkout, Getcheddar, DigitalOcean, Microsoft Azure, MailWizz, Paypal, Stripe, Pinterest, MailChimp, Twitter, Zapier, and CloudFlare.
COUTURME reserves the right to release your personal information to third parties if we believe in good faith that it is necessary to exercise our legal rights, defend against legal claims, or comply with a subpoena, court order, legal process, or other legal requirement. This may include law enforcement agencies, insurers, government and regulatory organizations, and professional advisers.
Protecting your personal information is important to use. COUTURME uses commercially reasonable security methods to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information and to maintain data accuracy. For example, we use Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) software, which encrypts certain information you provide us.
By using or creating an account with us and/or our Services, you acknowledge that you’re also responsible for protecting your account information and password. It is important that you keep your password and computer/tablet/mobile device secure. If you share a device with others, you should not save your login information on that shared device. Always remember to sign out of your account when you are done using our Services.
You can always choose not to provide us with certain information, though this may limit the Services you’re able to use.
Also, we have no control over third parties that may collect and store data independently from COUTURME without our permission and without following our rules.
