Sports Inc. ("Vorticy Sports") is committed to protecting
the privacy of its customers. We have taken strong measures to
ensure that the information we gather from you will be secure
and confidential. This policy applies to the Vorticy Sports websites
Your information: Why we need it.
What do we do with it.
When you order something from Vorticy Sports, we gather your name,
email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number
and expiration date. This information allows us to fill your order
and keep you updated on its progress.
If you register with us, we also store
your user name and password for your future ease of sign-in. This
means you won't have to re-enter your address and information
each time you order from Vorticy Sports. In registration, there
is optional demographic information you can enter that we use
to better serve our customers, by designing products that fit
their lifestyles. You also have the option to receive promotions
and new product announcements via email - but only if you want
to. As described below, you may opt out of receiving such promotional
emails at any time.
Occasionally we offer contests, surveys
and other features on our Web site that ask you to provide your
information. When you choose to respond to these requests, the
information you enter may be used as designated above, or may
be provided to third parties as necessary to meet prize fulfillment
or other aspects of the contest or offer. Your participation in
any survey, contest or other request is entirely voluntary.
For your protection
We make sure that every online transaction with our customers
meets our high standards of privacy and security. We do this by
using Google’s secure server that encrypts all of your confidential
information before you send it. In addition, we take strong measures
to protect all customer data against unauthorized access. Of course,
there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the
Internet and no data transmission can be guaranteed secure. Although
we will take the steps set forth above to protect your personally
identifiable information from loss, misuse, or alteration by third
parties, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved
in transmitting information over the Internet. As a result, while
we strive to protect your personally identifiable information,
Vorticy Sports cannot and does not ensure or warrant the security
of any information you transmit to us or via our Web site, and
you do so at your own risk.
Sharing your personal information
Vorticy Sports will not trade, sell or rent your personal information
(such as name, address, phone number or company name) to third
parties without your consent. We also protect your privacy by
limiting employee access to and use of customer data. While we
may provide statistics to outside companies about our customers,
including sales and related site information, it will not include
any personally identifying information. In addition, any communication
with you for promotional purposes, will be made only by Vorticy
Sports and our marketing partners - and only if you have selected
the option to receive such promotions. Vorticy Sports or its designated
agent will use your personal information only to fill your product
order and for purposes of authentication, security and verification.
We may also disclose personal information when we believe in good
faith that the law requires it. Vorticy Sports reserves the right
to disclose users' personal information in special cases when
we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary
to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who
or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally)
Vorticy Sports, its rights or property, or anyone else that could
be harmed by such activities. In addition, in connection with
any assignment, sale, joint venture, merger, or other transfer
or disposition of some or all of the assets of Vorticy Sports
or its affiliated entities, to third party successors in interest,
you acknowledge and agree that we can accordingly assign, sell,
license or transfer any information, including personally identifiable
information, that you have provided to us to such third parties.
Our Web site may contain links to other websites. Vorticy Sports
does not control and is not responsible for the privacy practices
or the content of such websites. As a general rule you should
out any personal information.

area. We may change this policy from time to time to address new
issues and reflect changes in our Web site or applicable law.
