During a visit to our website, your privacy is respected. We do not collect personal information about you unless you choose to send us an e-mail, or order an item through the website using PayPal, where you voluntarily provide your name and contact information. PayPal then sends that information to us. We use that information to communicate with you and ship our products. We may also communicate with you in future emailings, but you can choose to opt out of those mailings at any time through the contact information at the bottom of this page.
As you are probably aware, the Internet passively and automatically collects certain information about a user's traffic patterns, linked to their IP addresses. These are unique address numbers assigned to all web users by their ISPs (Internet Service Providers). IP addresses are automatically logged by web servers. These IP addresses do not identify an individual, but they may with the cooperation of the ISP be used to locate and identify an individual using the web. The IP address is considered personal information because it is an identifying number, and IP addresses are therefore protected by most privacy legislation.
Your personal information received through email or from PayPal (such as name, address, email address) is only used in our own office to communicate with you. It is not used for any other purpose. We will never sell or give your email address or personal information to anyone outside oStylus. We cannot guarantee the security of all web systems such as email, so please do not send us sensitive personal information. We can also be contacted using the postal system or by telephone. See the contact information at the bottom of this page.
How does Google Analytics use that information? Excerpt from http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html
"Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions. These cookies are used to store information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page. Browsers do not share first-party cookies across domains."
You can disable cookies in your browser and our website will function the same way. You may also opt-out of Google Analytics for any website with a browser add-on. This add-on prevents Google Analytics from collecting any information about your visit. It is available for most browsers here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
