1. WHAT INFORMATION DOES PROJECT GRAVITAS COLLECT FROM YOU?
You can visit the Website to read about our products and our company without telling us who you are and without revealing any personally identifiable information. There are instances, however, in which Project Gravitas requests personally identifiable information in order to provide you a product or service, or to respond to a request for information. Described below are the ways in which Project Gravitas actively and passively collects information during visit to the Website. This information is collected and stored in a manner appropriate to the nature of the data by Project Gravitas, its affiliates, and its third-party service providers and is used to fulfill your requests, as further described below.
Active Information Collection
Like many other websites, we actively collect information from our visitors, both by asking specific questions on this Website and by permitting you to communicate directly with us (including, but not limited to, when you create a Project Gravitas account, make a purchase, communicate with us via social media, write a product review, create a wishlist, contact our customer service team, participate in events, contests or promotions, or post User Generated Content to this Website). In collecting this information, we seek to provide the best possible experience to our customers, by actively managing the services, features, and content of the Website for ease of use and navigation.
Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, etc.). Also, if you place an order, you will be required to provide financial information.
If you register with this Website in order to gain access to certain Website features, during the registration process we may ask for your first and last name, email address, telephone number, and postal address, all of which are generally required in order to complete the registration. We also may ask you for other optional information, such as your experience with our products. Registered guests who provide this information can benefit from access to additional information about Project Gravitas products and other features and programs that Project Gravitas may offer from time to time.
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. Like most website operators, we track IP addresses, assign Internet tags, and use session, persistent and flash cookies, and other successor tracker technology.
We reserve the right to use electronic images known as web beacons, also referred to as single-pixel gifs, and any other successor technology, that permit us to count users who have visited certain Website pages and for other related statistics (e.g., recording the popularity of certain Website content and verifying system and server integrity). Web beacons are not used to access your personal information on the Website; they are solely used to compile aggregated statistics concerning the use of the Website. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, the time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.
We may passively collect information to generate statistics and measure Website activity in order to understand which areas of this Website are most popular, which areas may require improvement, and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve this Website and enhance the usefulness of user visits. We also use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment.
2. HOW DOES PROJECT GRAVITAS USE YOUR INFORMATION?
Project Gravitas may send you information about its products and services and may contact you about new features or products in which it believes you may be interested. Project Gravitas also may use your contact information for marketing and other purposes. In addition, we may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, online traffic patterns, and related information to reputable third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. Project Gravitas also will disclose any information that it is required to disclose by law or by an appropriate government authority. In addition, if some or all of our assets are purchased by or transferred to a third party, Project Gravitas will share your information with that third party.
From time to time, Project Gravitas may conduct online surveys. We use contact data from our surveys to send guests information about our company, provide Website survey results when available, and for marketing and other purposes.
Although Project Gravitas does not currently rent, sell, or otherwise share your information with third parties for purposes unrelated to this Website, it may do so in the future. If you do not want your information to be shared, you should contact us at Hello@GravitasNewYork.com as described in Section 3.
3. WHAT CHOICES DO YOU HAVE ABOUT HOW PROJECT GRAVITAS USES YOUR INFORMATION?
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. You may send us an email message at Hello@GravitasNewYork.com, to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. To protect your privacy, we will only respond to email messages sent from the email account you specified when you gave us your contact information. Should you elect to have your information deleted, we will also delete your guest account. All members may also log into the My Account section of the Website and review, update, edit, or delete their account information directly.
You may also opt out of having your email address used for promotional purposes by Project Gravitas. This opt out does not apply to information provided to Project Gravitas as a result of a product purchase, or other transactions. If you no longer wish to receive information or promotional materials from us by email you may opt out of receiving these communications. You may select the unsubscribe link from the bottom of the email or you may send us an email stating your request addressed to Hello@GravitasNewYork.com.
4. HOW DOES PROJECT GRAVITAS PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
When you place an order, we offer the use of a secure server (through the use of Secure Socket Layer or SSL technology). The secure server encrypts all sensitive information you input, before it is sent to us. Furthermore, every reasonable effort is made to protect customer data from unauthorized access. We use commercially reasonable methods to maintain the integrity and security of our databases. When you enter secure sections of the Website, such as the My Account section, you will notice that the URL field at the top of the browser shifts to “https,” denoting that the Website is in secure mode. The safety and security of your information also depend on you. Never share your password with anyone else, notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached, and remember to log off of this Website before you leave your computer.
Any personal information, photos or other images that you voluntarily disclose on the Website in a manner that other users can view (including, but not limited to buyer comments, social media posts, and/or comments or information given in connection with contests and promotions) becomes publicly available. Project Gravitas is not responsible for any personal information users select to disclose in these forums.
5. WHAT ABOUT THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES AND SOCIAL MEDIA SITES?
6. WHAT DOES PROJECT GRAVITAS DO ABOUT CHILDREN VISITING THIS WEBSITE?
This Website is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect information from Website visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose online. If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us via email at Hello@GravitasNewYork.com, if they would like this information deleted from our records.
