First, you need to be 18 years of age or older to use our Site. Second, by using our Site, you are agreeing to the terms of this policy, and we encourage every user to learn more about how and why we gather and use information. If you don’t agree with our policies, then we’re sorry and don’t want to lose you as a customer, but please don’t use our Site.
Your Information and How We Use It
Our Site, like most commercial websites, uses two kinds of information: personal information that you provide to us, and generic information that we collect automatically. To sum it up, we always want to improve how our Site works and better serve our customers. Data analysis helps us achieve those goals.
As a general rule, we do not collect your personal information just because you visit our Site. However, if you choose to buy a product or interact with any promotional offers on the Site, we ask you to provide personally identifiable information about yourself. “Personal Information” includes your name, physical and email addresses, and payment information like your credit or debit card number.
Do I Have to Give You My Personal Information?
When you make an online purchase, we need to collect your Personal Information to fulfill your order.
What if I Don't Want to Share My Personal Info with Sit 'n Sleep?
If that’s the case, then we’re sorry and we can’t complete your order.
What is Generic Information Anyway?
It’s a good question and the bottom line is that modern computer networks are set up to share information about the computer you are using. So, generic information includes things like:
- The type of Internet browser you use
- The operating system of your computer or mobile device.
- General Site navigation data like the number of users that visit a specific page, click on our offers or information, and how much time a visitor spends on a page.
We collect, study, and use this bulk information to help analyze Site traffic and improve our online services. At no point does this generic information personally identify you. Please keep reading for more details about how and why we collect and use information.
Automatically Collected Information
Like most commercial websites, when you visit our Site we automatically receive the generic information above, and, we also collect your IP address. This stands for Internet Protocol which is the electronic numerical address of your computer on the Internet.
One type of IP address is called a Static IP address, and unlike randomly assigned IP addresses, they do not change. Because they do not change, they are considered personal information. Mobile devices use something similar called a Unique Device Identifier that is kind of like an electronic serial number. This is also considered personal information because this does not change no matter what cell or WiFi network you use to access the Internet. However, while the Static IP address or the UDI never change, the user cannot be recognized as a specific individual simply from a Static IP address or UDI.
We may also automatically collect generic information about your browsing habits, entry and exit points for the Site, search items on the Site, website addresses you visit, page views, and impressions.
Internet Cookies and Our Site
Cookies have been around for decades. They are small text files placed on your hard drive by a website when you visit it. We use them as well. These files identify your computer and record your preferences and other data about your visit so that when you return to our Site, it recognizes your computer and can personalize your visit.
Your Cookie Settings
Most browsers allow you to control your privacy settings. You can modify the cookies setting to reject cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the sites you visit.
These are like Cookies but involve your browsing activities on the Internet, not just on our Site. We use Web Beacons (also known as pixels) that are small, transparent images that collect information like your IP address, the time you visited, the type of browser you use, and the existence of cookies previously set by the Site’s server. Web Beacons also provide information about other websites you visit, including the address and time you visit before coming to our Site. Please read more about Interest Based Advertising below.
Do Not Track Requests
Depending on what browser you use, you may be able to change its privacy settings to send a Do Not Track request to our Site. However, our Site does not respond to these types of browser signals. Please read more about this process below.
Interest Based Advertising
We use third-party service providers to provide advertisements for Sit ‘n Sleep on the Internet. While your Personal Information is not collected, if you used your computer or mobile device to visit our Site or you clicked on one of our ads, you may see an advertisement about us when you’re visiting other websites. This is what IBA is all about: providing advertisements to you based on your interests. On the modern Internet, this is a widespread practice, and we wanted to be upfront about it.
To learn more about your web choices and interest based advertising networks, visit the Digital Advertising Alliance where you have a variety of opt out options.
This website is for people who are 18 years of age or older. Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect information from individuals under the age of 18. If we change this part of the policy, we will let you know.
The Lawyers Made Us Say This Part
As a good corporate citizen, Sit ‘n Sleep complies with federal, state, and local laws and regulations. This means that we may have to disclose personal or generic information if we’re required to do so by law. This includes complying with legal process served on Sit ‘n Sleep or when we believe disclosing information is necessary to protect or defend our legal rights or property of us, the Site, or our users. We will also disclose information in an emergency to protect the health and safety of the Site's users or the general public.
Third Party Websites
We may provide links to other websites as a service to our customers. Please remember that we do not control the content or security on those websites, and their privacy policies will differ from ours. We encourage you to review and understand their privacy practices before providing them with information.
Customer Transaction Information
When you make a purchase in our retail store we collect Personal Information that you provide to us. To improve how we may better serve our customers and send you future information that might be of interest, we provide your name and address to authorized third party vendors. Our vendors assist us in keeping you updated with Sit ‘n Sleep offers, promotions, services, and general Sit ‘n Sleep information. In addition, these vendors may share anonymized, non-personal, generic information with other media companies. To put it simply, our vendors do not share your in store Personal Information with these other media companies.
More details on our use of information
As we mentioned, we may use Personal Information and generic information for our own internal statistical, design, or operational purposes. This includes analyzing things like our online audience size, traffic patterns, demographics, customer interest, online and in store purchases, and other trends among our users. We don’t do all this analysis on our own. We use authorized third parties to help us. However, the third parties may not use or disclose your Personal Information for any other purposes.
For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how visitors engage and interact with our Site so we can improve it. Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit the Site. For more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you use, visit this Google page.
Information about our users and the Site is one of our most important business assets. As a result, information about our users, including Personal Information, may be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business, or the sale or pledge of our company assets. This may also include an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership situation in which Personal Information would be transferred as one of the business assets of Sit ‘n Sleep.
Data Storage and Security of Personal Information
Personal Information as well as generic information shared with our authorized third parties may be stored on our internal servers or on their servers. No website or server is 100% secure. However, we maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access. We also are committed to employing reasonable technology to protect the security of our Site. We will also ask that any authorized third parties with whom we share we may information take comparable steps to protect that security.
Updating This Policy
We may revise and update this Policy if our practices change, as technology changes, or as we add new services or change existing ones. Any changes will be posted to here so that you will always know what information we gather and how we use it.
