BEND-IT POLICY ON CUSTOMER INFORMATION

We do not sell personal information to any third party, nor do we have any plans to do so. However, we may share your personal information with our agents, representatives, service providers and contractors for limited purposes, including but not limited to, fulfilling customer orders; offering certain products and services in connection with this Site; communicating to customers; providing customer service; enhancing and improving customers' shopping experience; administering or facilitating surveys, contests or sweepstakes; offering targeted marketing communications to users; providing a personalized shopping experience; preventing fraud; and completing payment processing.

 

Our database of personal information is a valuable asset. Therefore, if we sell or transfer an affiliate, business or line of business, we may transfer personal information used or held by that affiliate or business or used in connection with that line of business to the buyer, so long as the buyer agrees that the personal information we transfer will remain subject to this privacy policy.

 

Of course, we may disclose your personal information if you give us permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the disclosure is required to prevent harm or injury (such as product recalls, fraud, claims or other liability), or to comply with legal processes (subpoenas, warrants) or as otherwise required by law.

 

By personal information, we mean information that we collect and store in a way that allows us to relate it to you personally or to your family, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing or billing address and phone number. This privacy policy applies only to personal information. We may freely use, disclose or sell information that is not specifically associated with you personally or your family (such as statistics or aggregate information about our customers or website visitors.)

 

Under the terms of the applicable data protection rules and legislation you are entitled to inspect and, if necessary, correct any personal data concerning you. Furthermore, you are entitled to object to the use of your data for direct marketing purposes at any time.

Further, if our privacy policies change, we will post a notice here, so please check this page regularly. You understand that the privacy policy in effect at any time applies to all personal information held by Bend-it, whether or not that privacy policy was in effect when the information was collected. For that reason, we will provide customers with the means to let us know that they want us to delete information about them from our database. You may feel free to contact us for this purpose at info@bend-it.com. You will need to give us your full name and e-mail address.

 

We may transfer and process any personal information you provide to us to countries outside the European Economic Area whose laws may not afford the same level of protection to your personal information.  We will therefore ensure that all adequate safeguards are in place and that all applicable laws and regulations are complied with in connection with such transfer.

 

Bend-it will keep your personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, to provide you with services and to conduct our legitimate business interest or where otherwise required by law.

 

Bend-it ensures that adequate technical and organizational measures are taken to secure your personal data against loss or any unlawful processing.
