We respect your privacy! We are committed to treating all information you provide to us as personal and confidential, including information you provide when placing an order or when sending us inquiries. We will not share, sell, or exploit any information provided to us to any other company or third party, with the sole exception of information provided to us on our Mailing List signup form, where we will only share your information with the company that maintains our mailing list (see Outside Organizations below).
Orders placed through our site use a secure, encrypted connection to ensure that your personal information is safe and cannot be read when it is transmitted over the internet.
All of the information provided to us when you place an order is for the express purpose of processing your order. By supplying such information, we will retain only the information needed to complete your order and keep a log for our business transactions. Any information provided to us will not be shared with or sold to any other company or 3rd Party.
For all orders placed through our website, we collect your name, billing address, shipping address, phone number and email address, as well as your credit card information. Your credit card information is not saved in any form after your order has been processed.
For orders placed through Paypal's website, Paypal will collect your billing and shipping information, but they do not share your billing information with us. We only receive the shipping name and address, email, and phone number if you have provided a shipping phone number with your order. Please visit the Paypal website for more information on how Paypal keeps your information secure.
In order to improve your shopping experience, Blue Monocle partners with some other companies:
To better understand how visitors use our site, Blue Monocle uses Google Analytics to analyze visitors. The tool uses "cookies," which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website (including IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate visitors' use of our website and to compile statistical reports about our website. We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of visitors to our site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any Personally Identifiable Information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on our website.
We use MailChimp for our email list signup and to create and send emails to those who have signed up on our email list. The only information we collect is your email address, and, optionally, your first and last name. When you sign up for our mailing list, your information will be stored on a secure MailChimp server. We will not share, sell, or otherwise distribute your email address and/or name to any other company or 3rd Party. When you sign up for our mailing list your email will be used for the express purpose of sending you our periodic newsletter, and will not be used to contact you for any other reason. MailChimp will not, under any circumstances, contact you, market to you, sell or share your information with any other party.
