There are times when you may choose to give us personal information. For example, you may want to give us information, such as your name and address or email address, to enable us to correspond with you, to process an order, or to provide you with a subscription. You may give us your credit card details to buy something from us (please note that this information will not be stored on our website or that of our third party provider other than to process the transaction itself) or a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at Aspire that you wish to be considered for.
In order to serve you better, Aspire collects and stores your personal information when you create an account with Aspire. Your information (not including any credit card information) is used to process your orders and personalize your shopping experience with Aspire, for internal purposes and to comply with any legal requirements. By storing your personal information on a secure server, Aspire is able to shorten your checkout process and provide you with our email newsletters. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you; if you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests, we will respect your wishes. If you give us personal information about somebody else, such as a spouse or work colleague, we will assume that you have their permission to do so.
If you request something from the Site, for example, a product or service, a call-back, or specific marketing materials, we will use the information you provide to fulfill your request. To help us do this, we may share information, with others, for instance, other parts of Aspire, Aspire’s business partners, financial institutions, shipping companies, postal or government authorities (for example, Customs authorities) involved in fulfillment. In connection with a transaction we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.
We intend to protect your personal information and to maintain its quality. We implement appropriate measures and processes, such as using encryption when transmitting certain sensitive information, to help us to keep your information secure and to maintain its quality.
Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server, so that all sensitive/credit information supplied by you is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
If you have a question about this statement, you can send an email to the Aspire privacy officer at firstname.lastname@example.org (please put “PRIVACY” in the email subject line). You can also contact us at this address if you have a question about Aspire’s handling of your information, if you wish to obtain a copy of particular information you provided to Aspire, if you become aware the information is incorrect and you would like us to correct it, or if you want to remove yourself from Aspire’s mailing list. Before Aspire is able to provide you with any information or correct any inaccuracies, however, we may ask you to verify your identity and for other details to help us to respond to your request. We will endeavor to respond within an appropriate time frame.
