At Celtic we recognize that privacy is important. Therefore, for you to understand and make informed choices about personal information that maybe collected and the uses thereof, we are providing this privacy statement explaining our associated policy.
Access to this information is restricted to Celtic employees, contractors and agents who need to know the information in order to operate, develop or conduct our business. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
The personal information collected is generally used to process your purchase requests or transactions, and provide you with other services associated with our products. We may also use your information to provide promotional information about other Celtic products, special offerings, or upcoming events. If you prefer not to receive promotional information you may contact us at any time to decline and be removed from these distributions. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with this request.
We do not sell, rent, share or disclose personal information to third parties without your prior consent, except in the limited circumstances described below:
We may provide to a third party fulfillment company information that is necessary to fulfill an order you have placed with us. For example, if you request shipment for a purchase, we may provide your address to the shipping carrier, and if you pay by a credit or debit card, your card number and sales transaction information are passed on to the card processor and/or issuer (including their service providers such as fraud verification services). However, we give suppliers, and others involved in the commerce distribution chain only the information needed to provide you the products or services you order, such as shipping and/or billing address, email address, telephone number and product orders. Moreover, we require them to keep the information confidential and not to use it for other purposes. We are not responsible for any additional information you may provide directly to these parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their practices before disclosing information directly to them.
If you provide additional information to third parties, they are subject to applicable laws and their privacy policies, may share with us the information you provided and information about your use of the services. In some cases, these third parties may require as a condition of providing services to you that you authorize them to share information with us. If we terminate our relationship with a third party, information you provided to them may be returned to us, and we may provide that information to a new third party offering the same or similar services.
We may contract with others to perform tasks or services on our behalf. For example, we might retain a company to process credit card payments, to email information about special offers, or to analyze data. If any of our contractors need access to your personal information, we require that they promise to use the information only to perform the tasks we have engaged them to perform. We also require that they maintain the confidentiality of the information and/or return the information to us when they no longer need it.
In addition, we may use or disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to protect you, to comply with legal process or authorities, to respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Celtic, our employees, or the public.
We utilize security measures in an effort to protect personal information from loss, misuse or alteration while it is under our control. We use technical, contractual, administrative and physical measures in an effort to protect against unauthorized access.
We collect, process and maintain payment information, including credit card information, in compliance with the data security rules adopted by credit card companies such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. This means that we do not retain debit card PINs or credit card security codes, and that any time we maintain a credit card number, such as when you create an online account, we use access controls and strong encryption to protect it.
Further, when you enter personal information online, that information is encrypted using a security protocol called SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), which encrypts all information prior to transmitting it over the Internet.
We encourage parents to take an active interest in their children's use of the Internet. We do not intend to collect information from children who are under 13 years of age. If you are under 13, you should not provide information on the website and should ask your parent to do so for you. If we discover such information, we will delete it. Thus, we typically retain no identifiable information about children. However, if a parent believes his/her child has provided us information, simply email us and we will delete it. In order for us to find the information in our databases, you will need to provide us with the following information which will only be used to search our databases and deliver confirmation of deletion to you:
Parent's Name Address Telephone Number Email Address (for confirmation) The name of the child (if you suspect a nickname was used, please provide it)
Confirmation that information which identifies your child has been deleted will be delivered to you by e-mail, regular mail, or telephone.
Information we automatically collect as a result of your online activity is generally not retained in a personally identifiable form, or if the information is personally identifiable, we retain it only long enough for us to perform studies and analyses related to our website. The exception would be information we need in order to investigate fraud or problems associated with particular transactions or events.
If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy statement or would like to contact us for any reason, email us at email@example.com.
