Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Punk Pioneers collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a “User”) of the Merch.PunkPioneers.com website (“Site”). This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by Punk Pioneers and its related store, Merch Punk Pioneers.

SECTION 1 – WHAT DO I DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

When you sign up for my newsletter or communicate privately, or purchase something from my store, Merch.Punkpioneers.com as part of responding to your inquiry, private communication, or the buying and selling process, I collect the relevant, personal information you give me such as your name, address and email address.

When you browse my store, I also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide me with information that helps me learn about your browser and operating system.

What? I dunno, it’s something done in the background. I don’t collect nor analyze this info. The software does that. Nothing I can do about it. Most all sites do this.

Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, I may send you emails about my store, new products and other updates.

I NEVER SELL NOR SHARE your information. The exception being sharing information as related to business, such as needed for newsletters and marketing or other related third party service providers to help operate the business and deal with administrative activities.

Examples: some merchandise requires User or Customers to purchase directly from them, via Punk Pioneers, or its ancillary sites/businesses, sites. The purchase of a t-shirt [or other merchandise] usually directs User/Customer to the T-shirt vendor to manufacture and ship.

Photographs are often sent directly from the photo lab or printer to the User/Customer. Those businesses never contact User/Customer, other than if a problem. But not for marketing or other purposes.

Your information could be shared with a business associate(s), assistants (virtual or irl, in real life) for limited purposes, only with your explicit consent, to fulfill your request(s).

SECTION 2 – CONSENT

How do I get your consent?

When you provide me with personal information to complete a transaction, place an order, arrange for a delivery, it’s implied you consent to collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If I ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, I will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

How do you withdraw your consent?

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent to contact you, for continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by Write me.

SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE

I may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

SECTION 4 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, I recommend you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or me. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave my store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

Links

When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. Some links, only trusted sources, may provide financial rewards for doing so, at no cost to you. I am not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. Please read their privacy and other statements, if any doubt or questions, before proceeding on other sites.

SECTION 5 – SECURITY

To protect your personal information, I take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

NO credit card info is directly provided herein. Financial arrangements are through PayPal. However, this site, and the accompanying store (https://merch.punkpioneers.com) do have a SSL (secure socket layer technology) certificate via webhost, SiteGround.com. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we implement generally accepted industry standards.

COOKIES

Most sites use “cookies” to enhance User experience. If you don’t know what they are, Google is your friend. If you don’t want them, fine. But you’ll find most sites are dysfunctional if you turn them off. You need to se to set your web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you take that route, be aware, some parts of the Site may not function properly.

SECTION 6 – AGE OF CONSENT

Lawyer’s statement: By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.

Real world: this is a ROCK and ROLL site. Teens love music, right? So that’s that. I’m not gonna police this site. Deal. It’s up to PARENTS to watch over their kids. Rock ’n’ roll, baby. Enter at your own discretion. I try to keep it mild, but I do use some language considered objectionable at times. Plus the mention of sex and drugs. “Sex ‘n’ Drugs ‘n’ Rock ‘n’ Roll” is not just a saying in my Rock ‘n’ Roll life, photos, memories, or site.

SECTION 7 – CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

I reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If I make material changes to this policy, I will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information collected, how used, and under what circumstances, if any, I use and/or disclose it.

If my store is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell products to you.
