What Information Do We Collect?

Your privacy is important to us. 

PAPER PROJECT collects personal information when you shop and register with us on our Site.  Personal information is information that can be used to contract or identify you.  When you place an order or create an account on our Site, we ask for personal information such as your full name, email address, phone number, billing address, shipping address, and credit card number.  The personal information that you provide must be true, accurate and complete, and all registration and account details (where applicable) must contain your real name, address and other requested information.  You are responsible for keeping your information current and accurate.  We may combine information we collect from and about you online with information we collect from and about you through other means.  We may also combine your information with information we learn about you from other sources, such as account update notifications.

Please note that when you delete your account information on the Site, we may retain your information for a reasonable period of time afterward for the purpose of recordkeeping, account management and fraud prevention activities.  

In some instances, we may ask for contact information for people other than yourself including, for example, e-mail addresses of friends to whom you send gift cards, e-cards or a link to the Site, or the mailing address of someone you wish us to notify about the Site.  The information we collect is used to send the notification or information you request and/or to inform the recipient of PAPER PROJECT updates and opportunities.  Such contact information is not shared with any other organizations, other than as provided in this Privacy Policy.

Our Site may log certain non-identifying Site usage data, also called anonymous information, such as the number of visits to our Site.  We may also collect anonymous information such as the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; connection information such as browser type and version, operating system and platform; other software and hardware information; and information about your browsing behavior, such as the date/time you visit the Site, the Site pages that you visit, the time you spend visiting the Site or viewing a page, the number of times you return to the Site, and other click-stream data.  

We may also use third-party website analytics tools (such as Google Analytics and Shopify’s analytics) that collect information about visitor traffic on our Site and any mobile applications, including without limitation, prior activities on the Internet.  This information is used for internal purposes by PAPER PROJECT to provide better technical support and may also be provided to others for support, marketing, research or other business purposes as described in this Privacy Policy.  You can read about how Shopify collects and processes your data in Section 3 of their Privacy Policy found here. You can also read about how Google collects and uses your data in their privacy policy for partners here. If you would like to opt out of Google Analytics, please download and install the browser plugin at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.  Users can also opt out of third party interest based advertising by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative’s deactivation website at www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. We treat all information of the type referenced in this paragraph as non-personal, unless required by applicable law to do otherwise.  Additionally, any unsolicited information that you provide to us shall be deemed to be non-confidential, and we shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose and distribute such unsolicited information to others without limitation or attribution.

 

What Do We Use Your Information For?

In the event we must make a change to or cancel an order, we will attempt to notify you via email/address/phone number provided when the order was placed.

 

Do we disclose your personal identifiable information to outside parties?

PAPER PROJECT may share personally identifiable information about you to trusted third party service providers who assist us in operating the Site, providing the products or services to you, conducting our business, or servicing you, or to our affiliates or agents, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.  Examples include providing the shipping company with your address for shipping an order to you, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service.  

We also may share your personally identifiable information with our subsidiaries, joint venturers, or other companies under common control, in which case we will require them to honor this Privacy Policy. Additionally, in the event we undergo a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your personal information may be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy, and that any entity that acquires us, is merged with us or that acquires our assets may continue to process your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Aggregated Anonymous Information is the combination of your anonymous information with the anonymous information of other users (“Aggregated Anonymous Information”). Aggregated Anonymous Information does not allow you to be identified or contacted.  We may share such Aggregated Anonymous Information with third parties.

Additionally, we will share personally identifiable information if we have a good faith belief that: (i) access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, legal process (such as a court order or subpoena), request by law enforcement or governmental authorities; (ii) such action is appropriate to enforce our Terms, or other policies of our Site, including any investigation of potential violations thereof; (iii) such action is necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues associated with the Site; or (iv) such action is appropriate to protect our rights, property or safety, or the rights, property or safety of our employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, other users of the Site, or others.

Do We Use Cookies?

 Yes, we use “cookies.”  Cookies are small files of information that a website either transfers to your computer's hard drive or stores temporarily in your computer's memory for record-keeping purposes.  We may use cookies for purposes including, but not limited to, helping us to identify account holders and to optimize their shopping experience by remembering preferences.  Please note that we do not store credit card data on our Site’s server.  We may also use cookies to monitor and maintain information about your use of this Site.  Most browsers automatically accept cookies.  Through your browser, you may choose to have your computer alert you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies.  However, if you “turn off” cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of certain features of this Site.

 

Security

Protecting your personal information is a priority to us.  We would like you to have a secure shopping experience at PAPER PROJECT.  We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol to protect the security of your online order and credit card information as it is transmitted to our server.  We reserve the right to request further identification for credit card processing on any order you place with us.  

Unfortunately, no transmission of data over the Internet, and no system for storage of physical data, is guaranteed to be completely secure.  It may be possible for hackers or other third parties not under the control of PAPER PROJECT to intercept or access private communications unlawfully.  While we strive to protect your personal information, PAPER PROJECT cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit or otherwise provide to us.  Any transmission or other provision of information is done at your own risk.
