Meme-Graphics is particularly sensitive to protecting information about children. Protecting children's privacy is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect information on our website from those children we actually know are under 18 years of age. In addition, no part of our website is targeted to attract anyone under 18 years of age. We request that children under 18 years of age do not disclose or provide any Customer Information. If we discover such information, we will delete the child's Customer Information from our records. If for any reason we believe a user may be under the age of 18 we reserve the right to request proof of age of such user. If such proof is not provided, or if it is discovered a user is under the age of 18, we will use best effort to delete from our servers and associated systems all Customer Information of that user and we reserve the right to limit and/or ban such user from our Website. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Meme-Graphics encourages the use of its services by families. Meme-Graphics also believes that parents should supervise their children's online activities and consider using parental control tools, available from online services and software manufacturers, to help provide a child-friendly online environment. These tools may also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address, and other Customer Information without parental permission.
Customer Information is requested whenever you choose to purchase Meme-Graphics products. The type of Customer Information we request has to do specifically with the type of service you are using. For example:
When you want to order products from Meme-Graphics, we will ask for your first and last name, a billing address, a shipping address, an email address, and a credit card number for the payment of developing, shipping and handling costs.
When you complete a purchase from Meme-Graphics, we will ask you to provide shipping and billing information so that we can fulfil your request.
You also give information when you answer survey questions and organize your products on Meme-Graphics with titles, captions, categories, etc.
Our primary goal in collecting your Customer Information is to provide you with a personalized, relevant, user-friendly experience on the Meme-Graphics site.
We may use Customer Information to communicate with you and we consider this communication to be an integral part of the Meme-Graphics service. We may use your email and mailing address to inform you of site improvements, feature announcements, newsletters, Meme-Graphics promotional offers, and occasional third-party promotional offers that may be of interest to you. Only Meme-Graphics (or agents working on behalf of Meme-Graphics under confidentiality agreements) will send you these mailings.
Note that one reasons we are able to offer you relevant promotions is that we reserve the right to use aggregated, anonymous data about our users as a group. Your Customer Information, however, will never be personally identifiable when aggregated for these purposes.
Meme-Graphics Shares Customer Information with third party intermediaries who help us run the Meme-Graphics Service and Site and with affiliated businesses that have licensed our sticker creation application and have created “stores” in their websites. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party. Otherwise, your Customer Information is provided to these third parties solely for the purpose of providing you the services you request at the time that you request them.
Other than as described in the previous paragraph, Meme-Graphics will not sell, rent or otherwise share Customer Information with a third party without your knowledge and consent.
The one exception to the rule described in this section is the following: if Meme-Graphics is required by law (or to protect its rights or property), we will disclose Customer Information to the extent so required.
Meme-Graphics uses IP Addresses and Cookies in limited ways, as follows:
IP Addresses: An IP address is literally your computer's address and is a unique identifier, allowing online information to be sent to the right place. We use IP addresses to better understand the customer database. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information such as geographic distribution of our members. We do not intentionally link your IP address to your personally identifiable information.
Our website makes use of both “sessional” and “persistent” cookies. Persistent cookies are stored on your hard drive. Sessional cookies are stored in temporary (cache) memory and are deleted when you shut down your browser or turn off your computer.
Your Information on our Service is password-protected. We strongly recommend that you do not give your password to anyone and that you change it every 3 months. You may edit your Meme-Graphics account information by using your Meme-Graphics member name and password.
If you are using a public computer (public library, school computer, etc.) or a shared computer (family computer, roommate's computer, etc.), we strongly recommend that you sign out of your Meme-Graphics account and close your browser before getting up and moving away from the computer. This will prevent others from accessing your account and personal information. Meme-Graphics employs SSL - a specialized encryption and security technology -- to protect your Customer Information. We understand that this is especially important when there is an exchange of credit card, billing and password information. In addition, we limit access of Customer Information to only those employees who need it to carry out their jobs.
Meme-Graphics will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email.
You will only be asked for your member name and password when you initiate the contact and only if the member name and password are necessary to correct a service problem.
We protect your Customer Information using physical, electronic or procedural security measures appropriate to the sensitivity of the information in our custody or control, including safeguards to protect Customer Information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification. Meme-Graphics and its employees, servants, agents, contractors, legal, accounting or other service providers, partners, representatives and mandataries who require access to your Customer Information in order to fulfil their job requirements will have access to your Customer Information. You transmit or provide all Customer Information entirely at your own risk.
Customer Information that you provide during registration is available in your Meme-Graphics online account. To edit your Customer Information, you must enter your username and password to access your account. You may edit your account information at any time.
You can also cancel your Meme-Graphics membership by writing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you request cancellation of your account, Meme-Graphics may (but is not required to) remove any and all Content (stickers), images or other personal information from the Meme-Graphics site, and your stickers may not be accessible to you even if you choose to re-join or reactivate your account at a later date. Information necessary for the purposes of maintaining business records regarding a cancelled account, including records of credit transactions and account ownership, will be retained in accordance with applicable law.
