Personal information we collect
When you purchase something from Avathread, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information from you such as your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information, email address, and phone number that helps us fulfill your order, process your payment information, arrange for delivery or return, and provide you with invoices and/or order confirmations, provide customer support and communicate with you, screen our orders for potential risk or fraud, and when in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.
When you browse Avathread store, we also automatically receive your device information such as internet protocol (IP) address, operating system (OS), version of web browser, timezone that helps us load the Site accurately for you, and to perform analytics on Site usage to optimize our Site.
If you upload images to our website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Purpose of use for your personal information
We use your personal Information to provide our services to you, which includes: offering products for sale, processing payments, shipping and fulfillment of your order, customizing future shopping experience for you, improving our Site, communicating with you and keeping you up to date on new products, services, and offers.
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their privacy policies concerning the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which these providers will handle your personal information.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada, and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
