PRIVACY POLICY

NIO STYLES care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. Our Privacy Policy below applies between YOU, the User and NIO STYLES LTD. to your use of the NIOSTYLES.CO.UK website as well as those located at URLs that resolve to the domain name WWW.NIOSTYLES.CO.UK.  


We want you to understand what information we collect about you, how we collect it, how that information is used, and how you can control our disclosure of it. By visiting our Website, submitting information, using our services, and/or purchasing any products on our Website, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in the current Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions. 


You should review this Policy every time you use the website to satisfy yourself that you are happy with it. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use our site. 



SECTION A: INFORMATION COLLECTED

We collect three types of information from you: 

  1. information that you provide to us; 
  2. information we collect or receive from others; and 
  3. information that is derived through automated tracking mechanisms and technology.

We collect information when you register online or update your account, log-in, place an order, communicate with our customer service representatives, opt-in to receive our e-mails, shop online, request a catalogue, participate in a sweepstake, contest, promotion or survey or join our social networking sites. We may also collect information from you in our stores or through our catalogues or other marketing material. This information may include, but is not limited to, your contact information (for example, your name, e-mail address, billing and shipping addresses and phone number) and your credit card and debit card information. 


If you create an online account, you also have the option of providing your product preferences and demographic information. If you use other functionalities found on our Site, or if you choose to send an e-mail from our site to a friend, we may collect your friend's name and e-mail address. Your friend’s information is only used to send the forwarding e-mail and is not saved in our customer or marketing databases. We may update and supplement personally identifiable information that we have collected directly from you with other information that we obtain from third parties. In addition, we may obtain personally identifiable information about individuals who are not yet users of our Site. When we associate information that we obtain from third parties with personally identifiable information that we have collected under this Privacy Policy, we will treat the acquired information in the same way we treat the information that we collected ourselves and, except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, the information will not be shared with third parties.


We may collect information through automated tracking mechanisms and technology to make our Site more interesting and useful to you and for various purposes related to our business. For instance, when you come to our Site, we may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type. Such information may be used for system administration and to analyse the frequency with which visitors to our Site visit various parts of our sites; and we may combine such information with personally identifiable information.


We also use "cookies," Web beacons, and other tracking technologies. Cookies are small data files that are automatically stored on your computer when you visit our Website. Cookies are used to track the pages of the websites you have visited and do not retain any personally identifiable information such as your name, address or any credit/debit card information. We may use cookies to, among other things, enable you to use certain Website features, remember the items in your shopping cart, store your preferences, recognise you when you return to our Website, speed up your searches, track your orders, and monitor and maintain information about your general Internet usage and use of our Website. Cookies help us to improve our Website and to deliver a better and more customised service. They allow us to customise our Website according to your individual interests. You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of the Website or unable to use some or all of our services. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to our Site. By using our Website, you consent to our placement of cookies on your computer.


You may occasionally get cookies from our business partners or other third parties. We have no control over these cookies. We may also use cookies and other analytic systems to gather information and prepare reports on website activity and to provide other services related to your website activity and use of the Internet. By using this website, you agree to the treatment of information relative to you by Google in the form and with the aims above indicated. This Website may use tracking tags in certain pages to measure and optimise marketing campaign results. It will not store, in any event, personal user information. Web beacons are small strings of code that are placed in a website page or in an e-mail message. They are sometimes called "clear GIFs" (Graphics Interchange Format) or "pixel tags." Web beacons are most often used in conjunction with cookies to track activity on our Website. When you visit a particular page, web beacons notify us of your visit. Since web beacons are used in combination with cookies, if you disable cookies the web beacons will only detect an anonymous Website visit. When used in an e-mail, Web beacons enable us to know whether you have received the e-mail.


To enhance your shopping experience, our website may include links to other sites. Those websites will have their own privacy policies that you may wish to review. NIO STYLES has no responsibility for these linked websites.

You should also be aware that we may disclose specific information about you if required to do so by law, governmental request, process or court order or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with such law, request or court order or to protect the users of our websites or the public.
