Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, please note that, despite these efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.
Unless You choose to opt out, certain information, such as your postal address, email address, or phone number, may be used to send You special offers or promotions.
Kayaker Shop uses MailChimp, a third party email service provider, to send order confirmations, email promotions, offers, and previews of new merchandise. Signing up for our email list is optional, but if You choose to add your email address to our mailing list, we will use your email to deliver such promotions, offers, and previews to You. Please note that although You can opt out of receiving promotional emails, we reserve the right to send You informational email messages about any User account that You create with our Website, or administrative notices regarding the site, as permitted under the CAN-SPAM Act (15 U.S.C. §7701 et seq.). If you choose to opt out of receiving promotional emails, you will still receive emails related to order confirmations.

If You are using the Website combined, integrated, or used with Third Party Services, You agree that You may be subject to the privacy policies of these third parties for the use of their services.

Do We Share Your Information with Others?
We do not sell, trade, or share the personal information we have collected from You. However, we reserve the right to share your information with others in such cases described below:
1. We may share your personal information with a third party product supplier but only if relevant to fulfill your order.
2. We may share your information with third party software providers, but only to the extent necessary to provide you with the Services.

Do Not Track
Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference Users can set if they do not want web services to collect information about their online activity. However, there is currently no universal standard for sending and receiving DNT signals. Due to this lack of universal standard, it would be impossible for us to promise that we comply with all known and unknown DNT standards. Therefore, Kayaker Shop does not in any way monitor or respond to DNT signals or other mechanisms that provide a choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about activities over time and across different Websites or online services. If a universal standard for DNT becomes available, we may revisit our DNT Policy.
How Do I Get My Information Deleted?
If You would like Kayaker Shop to delete your personal information that has been collected, please contact us with your request. We will take steps to delete your information as soon as is practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records and as otherwise required by law. For example, we may need to retain personally identifiable information, such as your name, postal address, email address, phone number, and a record of any sales and returns. The purpose of retaining this information is to be able to contact you in the event that you have a problem with a prior purchase.
Removal of Information from Children
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 18, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
When You send sensitive information (such as your credit card number) to us via our order form, that information is encrypted and protected with SSL, the current industry-standard encryption protocol. When You are on such an SSL-protected page, a picture of a closed lock appears at the bottom or top of some Web browsers. At other times this lock appears open. Another way to tell if You are on a secure page is to look at the address or URL of the page. (Look in the address box or right-click on the page and select "Properties.") These secure SSL-encrypted pages have URLs that start with https:// instead of http://. If you have any questions about security at our Website, please email us.
