McRae Footwear (“we”, “us”, “our”) is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to its websites and users of its services (each a “Service” and collectively the “Services”). When you access, browse, or use the Services, information will be collected, transferred, processed, stored, and disclosed in accordance with this privacy policy (“Policy”). This Policy governs the information collection and disclosure practices for the Services.  By accessing, browsing, or using the Services, including making a purchase through our website, you expressly consent to the collection, transfer, use, processing and storage of your information (including personal information), as described in this Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS POLICY OR THE INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, AND DISCLOSURE PRACTICES DESCRIBED IN THIS POLICY, DO NOT USE THE Services.

  1. INFORMATION COLLECTION PRACTICES
    1. General. When you visit a web site without registering, you can browse without submitting personal information about yourself. If you make a purchase or sign up for certain Services, we will collect some personally identifiable information from you, which may include your full name, email address, shipping and billing address, and payment information. When you interact with the Services, we also receive and store certain additional types of information which, in general, do not directly identify you. For example, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs [from your browser or device including your IP address, browser type and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, other browser history, device type, wi-fi network information, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time]. This Section of the Policy outlines the various ways that information is collected from the Services. Please fully review this Policy before you use the Services or submit information to us.
    1. Information that You Provide.
      1. Registration for Certain Services.  Certain Services may require you to provide some personally identifiable information, such as your full name and email address.  You must provide your current, complete, and accurate information. It is your responsibility to keep your information up to date. We are not responsible for any problems, interruptions in access, or liability that may arise if you do not give us complete and accurate information or if you fail to update your information so that it is current.
      2. Purchase and Shipping Information. If you make a purchase or place an order through the Services, you will be asked to provide certain information about yourself, including your first and last name, email address, shipping address, phone number, and billing information.   
      3. Correspondence. If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us information about your use of the Services, we may save the information in a profile specific to you.
    1. Automatically Collected Information. We will collect some information about you and any product or device you use to access or use the Services automatically using a variety of technologies. In general, automatically collected information about use of the Services does not directly identify you and the information may include your [diagnostic log information, IP address, browser type and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time.] We collect this information for the purposes described in this Policy, including to better understand our customer base and to improve the quality of our Services.
      1. Cookies. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer. We use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart, understand and save your preferences for future visits, keep track of advertisements and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. Some cookies remain on your computer or device until you delete them. Others, like session ID cookies, expire when you close your browser. You may set your browser setting to attempt to reject cookies and you may still use the Services. See the section “Do-Not Track Settings” below for more information on how the Services may respond to your browser settings. We do not control the use of cookies by third parties. See Section 4 (Third Party Providers) for more information and review the privacy policies of all third party providers for more information on third party cookies.
      2. Pixels (aka web beacons/web bugs/java script). Pixels are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixels are small graphics that are about the size of the period at the end of the sentence that are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. Our third-party advertising and/or analytics providers may place pixels on our Services that track what other websites you visit (both before and after visiting the Services). Our third-party advertising and/or analytics providers use information obtained from pixels to help us improve our business and the Services. We do not control the use of pixels by third parties. See Section 4 (Third Party Providers) for more information and review the privacy policies of each of the third party providers for more information on third party pixels.

If you would like to stop receiving marketing emails from us, please click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any marketing email you receive. If you opt-out, you will continue to receive service-related emails.

    1. Generally. We will not sell or rent any of your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes. However, we may disclose your information to any affiliated entity or organization and to agents and service providers. We may also share non-identifying information with third parties for any lawful purpose, including analyzing trends, research, Services administration, tracking users’ movements around the Services, and to improve our business, products, services, and the Services. Use of information by affiliated entities and organizations will be subject to this Policy or an agreement that is at least as restrictive as this Policy. For information on use of information by agents and service providers see Section 4 (Third Party Providers).
    1. Legal Requirements. In some cases, we may disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law; if we believe that disclosure is needed to protect our rights; to government regulators; to law enforcement authorities; in connection with any judicial proceeding, court order, subpoena, or legal process served on us or the Services.
    1. Insolvency and Business Transitions. If we ever file for bankruptcy or engage in a business transition such as a merger with another company or if purchase, sell, or reorganize all or a part of the Services or our business or assets, we may disclose your personal information, including to prospective or actual purchasers in connection with one of these transactions.
    1. Disclaimer. We cannot ensure that all of your personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Policy. For example, we may be required to disclose personal information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Services. No transmission of data over the internet can be 100% secure.
  1. Third-Party Providers.
    1. General.  We use third parties to help us operate and improve the Services. We may provide these third parties information we collect and they may collect information from you and about your use of the Services. We may provide information we collect to third parties and it will, unless specifically noted otherwise in this Policy, be governed by this Policy and may only be used by those third parties to help us operate or improve our business or the Services and provide services to us. We do not control information collected by third parties and are not responsible for their use of that information. Please review their privacy policies for more information on their information collection, use, and sharing practices.
    1. Google Analytics. We use Google, a third-party analytics provider, to collect information about Services usage and the users of the Services, including demographic and interest-level information. Google uses cookies and pixels in order to collect demographic and interest-level information and usage information from users that visit the Services, including information about the pages where users enter and exit the Services and what pages users view on the Services, time spent, browser, operating system, and IP address. Cookies and pixels allow Google to recognize a user when a user visits the Services and when the user visits other websites. Google uses the information it collects from the Services and other websites to share with us and other website operators information about users including age range, gender, geographic regions, general interests, and details about devices used to visit websites and purchase items. We do not link information we receive from Google with any of your personally identifiable information. For more information regarding Google’s use of cookies, pixels, and collection and use of information, see the Google Privacy Policy. If you would like to opt out of Google Analytics tracking, please visit the following link: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
    1. Google AdWords. We use Google AdWords remarketing services to advertise on third-party websites to previous visitors to our site, including users who have not completed an action on our site, such as making a purchase or signing up for a newsletter. These advertisements could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page or a site in the Google Display Network. Google use cookies and pixels to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to our website. For more information regarding Google’s use of cookies, pixels, and collection and use of information, see the Google Privacy Policy. You may also edit your Google advertising settings at the following link: Google Ad Settings.
  1. ONLINE TRACKING AND YOUR CHOICES

As discussed above, because we and our third party service providers automatically collect Services usage information through the use of cookies, pixels and other tracking technologies (including as described in the “Automatically Collected Information” section above, and otherwise in this Policy), your selection of the “Do Not Track” option provided by your browser may not have any effect on our collection of automatically collected information. One way to attempt to “opt out” of the collection of any information through cookies and some (but not all) other tracking technology is to actively manage the settings on your browser to delete and disable cookies and other tracking/recording tools. However, getting a “Do Not Track” signal to work as you might want is difficult and may not be possible. Using browsers as an example, not all tracking technologies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser might be recognizable even if you disable a tracking technology; not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose data still may be collected for another; and even if one website observes a “Do Not Track” signal, that website usually will not be able to control other websites.

  1. INFORMATION SECURITY MEASURES

Keeping secure personal information that we collect is of great concern to us. While we have mechanisms in place to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. When you provide information to the Services, you do so at your own risk.

  1. Children’s Privacy
    1. The Services are Not Intended for Children. The Services ae intended for general audiences and are not directed to children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13; nor will we send any email correspondence to children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected information from a child under the age of 13, we will remove that information immediately and delete it from our servers. Children under the age of 13 should always ask their parents or guardians before providing their information online. If you believe information from a child under the age of 13 has been submitted to the Site, please contact us by using the contact information in the Privacy Questions section at the bottom of this Policy, and we will take steps to remove the information.
    2. California Minors. We may provide users the ability to publicly post information, for example by submitting user testimonials. If you are a California resident under age 18 and you are unable to remove publicly-available information that you have submitted to us, you may request removal by contacting us at: privacy@mcraefootwear. When requesting removal, you must be specific about the information you want removed and provide us with specific information, such as the URL for each page where the information is located, so that we can find it. We are not required to remove any information that: (i) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; (ii) the information was not posted by you; (iii) we anonymize the information so that you cannot be identified; (iv) you don’t follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (v) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the information. REMOVAL OF YOUR INFORMATION FROM THE SITE DOES NOT ENSURE COMPLETE OR COMPREHENSIVE REMOVAL OF THAT INFORMATION FROM OUR SYSTEMS OR THE SYSTEMS OF OUR SERVICE PROVIDERS.  We are not required to delete the information; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymize the information or render it invisible to other users and the public.
