Collection of Personal information
As a visitor to the Site, you can engage in many activities without providing any Personal Information.
However, once you decide to purchase a Graduation Package or book a photo shoot, we may collect the following Personal Information from you:
- Contact information such as your name, phone and fax numbers, address and email address; and
- Demographic information such as your job title, job description and company name and company type.
When purchasing or doing business online with us, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular transaction, you will not be able to complete that transaction.
As is true of most websites, when you use the website, Quashpix or third parties authorized by Quashpix may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the website and its services. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer.
We use these environmental variables to facilitate and track your use of our website and its services. Quashpix also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on the Site. To better understand the needs of our visitors to the website we may occasionally match such information with your Personal Information.
Information Sharing with Service Providers
Quashpix uses one or more outside credit card processing companies to bill you for our goods and services. To the best of our knowledge, these companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
We also share Personal Information with certain companies that perform services on our behalf. We only share the Personal Information which is necessary for them to perform those services. We require any company with which we may share Personal Information to protect that data in a manner consistent with this policy and to limit the use of such Personal Information to the performance of services for Quashpix.
We do not sell or otherwise provide Personal Information to other companies for the marketing of their own products or services.
