PRIVACY POLICY

The Andi Brand Corp. (“ANDI,” "us," or "we"), a New York corporation, respects the privacy of visitors to our website, accessible at the domain: www.theandibrand.com (“Website” or “Site”). This Privacy Policy is intended to inform you of our policies and practices regarding the collection, retention, use, and disclosure of any Personal Information through our Site.

By submitting any information through our Site, you acknowledge and agree that we may process (i.e., collect, use, etc.) your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy.

THE INFORMATION THAT ANDI COLLECTS, AND HOW IT IS COLLECTED:

ANDI collects Personal Information and Anonymous Information from you when you visit the Site, create an account, submit a request or support ticket, or place an order. "Personal Information" means information that can be used to identify a particular individual or Site user, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, user name, and any information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing information, such as your IP address or geographic location information. "Anonymous Information" means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information and which cannot be used to identify an individual. ANDI collects and uses Personal Information and Anonymous Information as described in this Privacy Policy.

• USER PROVIDED INFORMATION
You may voluntarily provide Personal Information such as your name, email address, postal address, phone number, or credit card information when placing orders or participating in various activities on the Site. Additionally, you may be asked to provide certain Personal Information if you choose to create an account on the Site, including your first and last name, email address, and password. ANDI may also collect your email address if you choose to sign up for email communications or newsletters from ANDI.

• INFORMATION COLLECTED BY COOKIES
In addition to the information that you choose to voluntarily provide, when you visit the Site, ANDI sends cookies to your computer to collect information from you regarding your web browsing activities, browser specifications, device specifications, and account settings and preferences. "Cookies" are small lines of text that a website sends to your computer's hard drive while you are viewing a website. ANDI uses both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until they expire or until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on the Site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following the help file directions on your internet browser. ANDI uses cookies for many purposes, including: to save your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the Site; to remember your account settings and preferences from session to session; to ensure proper functioning of the Site and Site features; to monitor and maintain the security of your account and of the Site; and, to deliver content, including product offers, specific to your interests. ANDI also uses cookies to collect and track your IP address. An "IP Address" is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP address stays the same from browser session to browser session. However, if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP address probably varies from session to session. ANDI tracks IP addresses in conjunction with session cookies to analyze our web page flow, for fraud detection purposes, and to maintain the security of your account and of the Site. Your browser has options to accept, reject, or provide you with notice when a cookie is sent. Please note, however, that if you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Site may lose certain functionalities or cease to work properly.

• INFORMATION COLLECTED BY WEB BEACONS
In addition to cookies, ANDI employs "invisible pixels" (a.k.a. web beacons) on the Site and in connection with certain email communications. An invisible pixel is a tiny, 1x1 image that is loaded when you visit a Site, but instead of calling up an image, it causes a cookie or application to be downloaded. Pixels and other web beacons can be used for a number of web tracking or advertising purposes, however, the web beacons implemented on the ANDI Site are limited to the anonymous tracking of Site usage patterns. Additionally, ANDI uses Web Beacons to anonymously track whether certain email communications are opened by recipients.

• SERVER LOGS
ANDI’s servers automatically record certain information from your web browser whenever you visit the Site. These server logs include information such as your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language, referring pages (including URLs), platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of any requests you make while navigating the Site. ANDI uses this information to optimize the Site for your particular browser environment, monitor and analyze Site traffic and Site flow in order to improve Site organization and functionality, and to maintain Site security. The information collected in the server logs is not personal information and cannot be used to personally identify you. While the server logs are associated with your IP address in order to track specific browsing sessions on the Site, ANDI does not store or associate the information in the server logs—including your IP address—with your account or contact information.

HOW ANDI USES THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS:

ANDI uses your Personal Information to process and fulfill any orders you place and to complete any requests you make—including requests to create accounts or receive email communications regarding products and newsletters. As part of processing and fulfilling your orders, ANDI will use your Personal Information to process your payment, as authorized by you during the checkout process, and to communicate with you regarding the status of your order and delivery details.

ANDI also uses the information it collects from you via cookies and other technological means to track and implement your account settings and preferences from session to session, and to remember your password so you do not need to log in every time you visit the Site. ANDI may also use the information it collects to determine your purchase preferences, identify content that may be of specific interest to you, and deliver product offers or other content specific to your interests.

If you receive direct marketing from ANDI, you can opt out at any time by following the instructions included in every email sent to you via the “Unsubscribe” link, or by sending a request to opt out of promotional email communications to info@theandibrand.com. ANDI respects your choice and will stop sending you promotional emails once you unsubscribe. Please note, however, that you may not opt out of non-promotional communications from ANDI, including communications confirming successful order placements, communications sent for customer service purposes, notifications regarding important Site or policy changes, communications providing important security or data breach information, and communications containing other significant information related to your Personal Information for as long as it is retained by ANDI.

ANDI may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as your name and/or IP address) that would allow someone to identify a specific individual. ANDI may use this Anonymous Information to analyze request patterns and improve the Site and our performance of services offered through the Site. In addition, ANDI may create and use aggregate or statistical information that is not traceable to any particular individual (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Website and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends. ANDI reserves the right to use and disclose anonymous or aggregate information to third parties in its discretion.

We will not perform any automated decision-making processes on the information that we collect.

While ANDI will sometimes request your consent before using your Personal Information, there are many additional legitimate and lawful purposes for which ANDI may collect and use your Personal Information without your consent. For more information, please see the see section titled “Notice Regarding Requested Consents,” below.

THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH ANDI WILL SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH OTHERS:

ANDI may share Anonymous Information for any legitimate business purpose allowed under the applicable laws and regulations without notification or consent.

ANDI will share your Personal Information with employees, consultants, affiliates, or other third party businesses or persons for the purpose of processing your information on ANDI’s behalf, including processing relating to fulfilling your orders, processing payments relating to your orders, shipping your orders to you, and maintaining and securing ANDI’s business records. ANDI has taken certain organizational and technological security measures to secure your personal information, described in the “How Your Information Is Secured” section below, and requires at least the same degree of organizational and technological security to be used by our employees, consultants, affiliates, and third party businesses or persons involved in processing Personal Information. If ANDI discloses your Personal Information as identified in this section, ANDI agrees to be liable for violations of your privacy rights by the third parties to which your Personal Information was disclosed.

If ANDI or its assets are acquired by another company, that company will possess your Personal Information and it will assume the rights and obligations regarding your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy.

ANDI will not share your Personal Information with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you have the ability to opt-in or opt-out.

Some of ANDI’s third party partners or contractors may be international organizations or organizations that were formed in the United States. If ANDI shares your Personal Information with such parties, ANDI will use appropriate methods to transmit your information in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. Such methods may include, but are not limited to, the Privacy Shield framework, model contract clauses, or binding corporate bylaws.

In certain circumstances, ANDI may be required to disclose your Personal Information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

While ANDI may request your consent to use or share your Personal Information to fulfill or perform services regarding your orders and requests, ANDI may also use or share your Personal Information without your consent for any legitimate purpose as allowed under the applicable laws and regulations (see section titled “Notice Regarding Requested Consents,” below), including fulfilling contractual obligations to you, enforcing the Terms of Service, or bringing or defending against legal claims.

HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS SECURED:

ANDI takes reasonable technical and organizational precautions, in addition to following industry best practices, to protect your information against loss, misuse, alteration, disclosure, unauthorized access, or destruction.

ANDI makes use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology and keeps sensitive details stored in an encrypted format in the ANDI database. If you provide your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, ANDI follows all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

ANDI has implemented other industry-standard electronic means of protecting your Personal Information including storing your Personal Information behind a computer firewall, which is a barrier designed to prevent outsiders from accessing our servers. Except as provided elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, ANDI limits access to your Personal Information, regardless of if it is stored electronically or in physical form, to those persons (including employees and contractors) in ANDI's organization who have a business need for such access.

In addition to ANDI’s technical and organizational security precautions, when you create an account, you must designate a password to secure your account information. It is important that you protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by logging off once you have finished using a shared computer.

Even though ANDI has taken significant steps to ensure that your Personal Information is not intercepted, accessed, used, or disclosed to or by unauthorized persons, you should know that ANDI cannot eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information.

It is encrypted through third-party data centers with industry-standard certifications, including the Level 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), Tier III, and ISO 27001. Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that transaction is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
