Privacy Policy

Collared is committed to protecting the private sensitive information of our customers. We have revised our Privacy Policy to reflect our commitment, and we strongly urge you to take some time to review the new version below.

Promotional Offers from the Company

If you do not wish that we retain or use your e-mail address/contact information to promote our own or third parties’ products or services, you can opt-out  by sending us an e-mail stating your request to: collaredcontact@gmail.com = Informing us that you no longer wish to be contacted about promotional material

Data Retention Policy

There are two main categories of data we are primarily concerned with: Personal Data (all of the information that identifies a particular customer (e.g. name, address, email address, etc.) and Sales Data (the purchases any customer may make). We undertake that we will not retain your personal data for periods that are longer than necessary for the purpose for which it was obtained and/or held for processing. We must, however, retain sales data for a minimum of seven years in order to comply with the requirements of various legal and financial regulatory agencies. As a result, in addition to a user’s ability to export/modify/purge personal data from our system, we have a two-tiered approach to purging personal data.

Generally speaking, we will retain your personal data for a minimum period of three (3) years following the last day in which you interacted with us regarding the purpose for which the personal data was obtained and processed. For example, we will retain Sales Data related to any sale for a minimum of three (3) years from the date the relevant goods or services were delivered to or, in the case of streaming video, used by you.

In some cases, it is not possible for us to specify in advance the periods for which your personal data will be retained. In such cases, we undertake to determine a period of retention based upon the relevant applicable statute of limitations as concerns any claim you may have as against each other based upon your interaction with the Website and/or the order or delivery of any goods or services and to attend to security issues and prevent or investigate attacks and/or fraud, maintain our record keeping, and properly administer our Website and business.

In any event, we may retain your personal data where retention is necessary for legal or regulatory compliance purposes or in order to protect the vital interests of either of us or of a third party.

It is important to note that once personal data is purged either by request or our data retention policy, there will be no way for the customer or our customer service department to access any of the data or digital products stored on our servers and associated with that account.

Correcting Your Information

If your physical address changes or you change your email address, please advise us in writing or update your user account information so our records remain up to date and there is no delay to your receipt of an order or warranty status. We are not responsible for lost goods or incomplete services due to your failure to update such information.

To exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data, or to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us, please contact us by e-mail at collaredcontact@gmail.com- Privacy Inquiry General- Request Regarding. There are exceptions to our obligation to delete or modify your personal data. In general, we may not accommodate a request to delete or change information if the change would violate any law or regulation or if retention is necessary to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information, comply with a legal obligation, attend to security issues and prevent or investigate attacks and/or fraud, maintain our record keeping, and properly administer our Website and business, to protect the vital interests of you, us, or any third party, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

We reserve the right to require proof of identity and residence, and (subject to applicable legal restriction) to obtain reasonable condition for providing access to, modifying or deleting your data.

If you delete your User Contributions from the Website, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or might have been copied or stored by other Website users. Proper access and use of information provided on the Website, including User Contributions, is governed by our Terms of Use.

Special Rights For European Residents.

If you reside in the European Union you may have additional rights as set forth under the GDPR. The GDPR is a complex regulatory process. We advise you to read the relevant regulation and guidance provided by the relevant regulatory authorities for a full explanation of your rights.

Your principal rights under the GDPR are access to change in communication, rectification, erasure, processing restriction or objection, portability, withdrawal of consent and the right to complaint to a regulatory authority. These rights are not absolute and exceptions apply. For example, we may not accommodate a request to delete or change information if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds that override your interests or the change would violate any law or regulation or if retention is necessary to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information, comply with a legal obligation, attend to security issues and prevent or investigate attacks and/or fraud, maintain our record keeping, and properly administer our Website and business, to protect the vital interests of you, us, or any third party, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

If the legal basis for our processing your personal data is your consent, or the necessity to comply with your requests, or for the performance of a contract we have with you, and we are automatically processing your personal data, you have the right to receive from us a copy of such personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time subject to applicable exceptions. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement.
