When you use our Services, you may provide Styleteq with two main types of information: (1) personally identifiable information that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis, and (2) general user information that does not contain personally identifiable information, which is collected on an aggregate basis as you browse and use our Services. We collect information from you when you (a) use and/or access our Services, (b) register an account and/or subscribe to Styleteq, (c) open and/or respond to our emails, (d) contact Styleteq, (e) visit any page on our applications and/or online that displays our content, (f) purchase products and/or services through our Services, (g) connect and/or link via social networking website, and/or (h) provide information to any of our vendors.
We may ask for certain personal information from you for the purpose of providing to you content and/or services that you request. We collect personal information such as your: (i) contact information (including name, telephone number, email and address); (ii) financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date, verification number and billing address); (iii) username and password (specifically chosen by you or your social media user name/handle); (iv) contact information of friends or others you would like us to contact; (v) demographic information (including age, birthdate and gender); (vi) location information (such as geographic location of the device you are using) and (vii) preferences and behavior (such as record of purchases made, comments, disputes, areas of interests, types of deals that interest you). Once you register, you have opted in to receive electronic communications from Sytleteq. .
If you so choose, you may connect to or register an account using an external third-party application, such as ‘Facebook’, ‘Twitter’, ‘Pinterest’, etc. Styleteq may receive some data from such connected third-party applications. Connecting your account to third-party applications and/or services is optional, and when you connect your account to an external application, you will be given the opportunity to grant permission. By connecting to external third party applications, we may help you find friends using your account or we may allow people to search for your account using your contact information. You can revoke the foregoing permissions under your account settings and/or with the external third-party application. Depending on which services you choose to use, Styleteq may require additional information and contact information.
Device Data: We use device data, which is information concerning a device you use to access, use, and/or interact with the Services, such as operating system type and/or mobile device model, browser type, domain, and other system settings, the language your system uses and the country and time zone of your device, geo-location, unique device identifier and/or other device identifier, mobile phone carrier identification, and device software platform and firmware information.
Aggregate: We may collect non-identifying and statistical information about the use of our Services, such as how many visitors visit a specific page, how long they stay on that page and which links, if any, they click on. This information represents a generic overview of our users, including their collective habits. Information collected in the aggregate is not associated with you as an individual. We may share user information in the aggregate with third parties, such as advertisers and content distributors.
Other Tracking Technologies: We may supplement information you provide to us with information from other sources, such as information to validate and/or update your address, payment card and/or other demographic information. This information is used to maintain the accuracy of information on our Services and for internal analysis. We may also use clear gifs, pixel tags and web beacons, which are tiny graphic images placed on website pages and/or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed specific actions and are further used to track online movements of our users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to your personally identifiable information.
The information collected in the aggregate enables Styleteq to better understand your use of the Services and to enhance your enjoyment. We may use financial information to process payment for any purchases made on our Service, enroll you in one of our accounts and/or other related services in which you elect to participate. If you use the Services, you agree to receive certain communications from us including but not limited to the following:
Special Offers and Updates. We will occasionally send you information on products, special deals and promotions. You can sign up for these emails from us at any time through our Service. Out of respect for your privacy, you may elect not to receive these types of communications by changing your account setting through the Services.
Customer Service. Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, as you may elect.
Supplementation of Information. In order to process your credit card orders, we use a third party provider to validate and verify your account information. All billing and account information is transmitted via https, which is a secure encrypted protocol system.
Styleteq will facilitate the sharing of information between the parties involved in the transaction. As part of the marketing and promoting process, you may obtain another member's contact information, related specials and/or vacancies. You have a limited license to use this information only for Styleteq-related communications and/or for Styleteq facilitated transactions. Styleteq has not granted you a license to use the information for unsolicited commercial messages and/or unauthorized transactions. Without express consent from such person, you must not add any member to your email and/or physical mailing list and/or misuse any payment information.
If we sell or otherwise transfer part or the whole of Styleteq or our assets to another organization (e.g., in the course of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation), your information such as name and email address, user content and/or any other information collected through the Services may be among the items sold and/or transferred.
We respect your privacy and give you an opportunity to opt out of receiving announcements of certain information. Although we think that you benefit from a more personalized experience when we know more about you and what you like, you can limit the information you provide to Styleteq, and you can limit the communications that Styleteq sends to you. If you visit our Services and volunteer personally identifiable information, you can opt out of receiving notifications, and you may review, modify, update, and/or delete such information by contacting us or by changing your preferences on the Service. Please be aware that even after your request for a change is processed, Styleteq may, for a time, retain residual information about you in its backup and/or archival copies of its database. Please be aware that we may still email you non-commercial emails related to your account and your transactions through our Services. Following termination and/or deactivation of your account, Styleteq may retain information (including your profile information) for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, and/or audit purposes. In some cases, if you choose not to provide Styleteq with requested information, you may not be able to access all of our Services.
You may connect directly with your mobile device’s address book, or a social network account to import your contacts to Styleteq; we do not retain the login information for your mobile device, or social network site. You may be able to search for people you know by email address and/or phone number on the Service. Finding your friends on Styleteq helps you connect with them. If you do not want your contacts to be able to find you on Styleteq, then you may opt-out and block certain usages through your account settings on the Service.
Styleteq is both a social network community and online professional connections service. We offer several features that allow you to connect and communicate in public or semi-public spaces, such as Styleteq’s messaging platform. Styleteq allows you to connect with others while using the Services, so when you create a public profile, including comments and messages, anyone can view them. Please be respectful and use common sense when posting in public community spaces or sharing your personal information. Information that you submit can be read, collected, and/or used by others. Posts in community spaces may remain public even after your account is closed. You are responsible for personal information you choose to post in community spaces.

We work hard to secure your personal information from unauthorized access to and/or unauthorized alteration, disclosure and/or destruction of information we hold. Your account is protected by password for your privacy and security. We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems. Because the internet is not a completely secure environment, Styleteq cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to Styleteq or guarantee that information on the Services may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, and/or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical and/or managerial safeguards. Please do your part to help Styleteq. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to emails between you and Styleteq, at all times.
