PRIVACY POLICY & USER AGREEMENT

Welcome to Taigan. Taigan takes the privacy of our guests, shoppers and shops seriously, and has implemented this Privacy Policy to detail our efforts.

PRIVACY POLICY

SCOPE. At Taigan, your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. Taigan is the sole owner of the Personal Information collected on the site, and we do not use, sell, rent, trade or publish any data received from you, unless otherwise detailed in this policy. The information we collect through our website helps us provide you with information specific to your interests and needs. Please read the policy and the types of information we collect through the website.

INFORMATION COLLECTION. Identifiable Information is any information that identifies you and allows us to contact you. It includes, among other information that you provide to us, such information as your name, phone number, email address, credit card number and billing address. We only collect the necessary data to register your Taigan membership and to complete transactions on the site. You may change or edit your information at any time from the My Account page. As an analytical tool, we also track website statistical data. This does not provide us with any Personal Information and is only used to help determine the most effective way of communicating with and serving the needs and requests of our members. We also collect data to identify high-traffic areas within the site. Such data consists of page/product views, hits to the server, types of browsers used to access our site, and navigational patterns. In no way does this website analysis provide us with any of your Personal Information.

SHOP CUSTOMER LISTS. Taigan is a collection of independently owned and operated Retailers, Designers and Purveyors, collectively represented in this document as “Shops”. As a service to our Retailers, Taigan deploys an introduction to the customer list of any newly added shops. This allows the Shop’s customers to find and shop them online on Taigan.com. Taigan facilitates this communication by creating artwork, copy and a dedicated email account through accredited third-party vendors. Each Shop provides their customer list, to be used only by a third party email deploy service to introduce and update its customers on activity at that shop on Taigan. Shop Customer Lists and any associated information is the property of the Shop and is not shared nor made public, nor used in any other way than that which is agreed upon, to promote the Shop’s presence and items on Taigan. Once a Shop Customer provides their email address to Taigan, the information they enter on Taigan becomes subject to this Privacy Policy.

COOKIES. Cookies are pieces of data assigned by a web server that uniquely identifies the browser on your computer. Cookies are used to store information about your browsing which allows the site to personalize your experience. They are used for authenticating, session tracking, and maintaining specific information about users, such as site preferences. A “web beacon” or “pixel tag” or “clear gif” is typically a one-pixel image, used to pass information from your computer to a website. You can, of course, disable cookies and web beacons on your computer by indicating this in the preferences or options menu in your browser. However, it is possible that some parts of Taigan.com will not operate correctly if you disable cookies.

USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION. Taigan does not sell, rent or publish any identifiable information received from you. The access to this identifiable information is limited to only those Taigan officers and employees who specifically require the information to serve the needs of the membership as part of their jobs. If you choose to store credit card data with our gateway, it will be used to process any transactions between our Registered Shopper-members and Retailers. Your email address is used solely for the purpose of responding to any questions or requests you may have as well as to notify you of any announcements, promotions, website content updates, or special stores or offers for which you have signed up or from whom you have specifically requested information. Taigan commits to protect confidential information, unless otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right to submit the necessary information needed to aid in any legal action, defend against any legal claim, or in order to investigate, prevent and take action regarding any suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, illegal activity or violations of Taigan’s Privacy Policy.

OPT IN/ OPT OUT AND OTHER NOTIFICATIONS. You may choose to receive updates from Taigan and from individual shops on Taigan. You may edit this at any time in your Account Settings. You may opt out of receiving any updates or messages from the retailers at any time. All members will be notified of website changes, improvements and updates relating to the operation of Taigan.com. These notifications may be made through Taigan’s internal message system or through email.

EXTERNAL LINKS. While visiting Taigan.com, you may link to websites operated by our business affiliates or other third parties. This does not mean that we endorse these websites. We do not make any representations or warranties about any website you may access through this website. They are independent from us, and we have no control over, or responsibility for, their information or activities. In addition, our privacy practices may differ from those of these other sites. If you provide personal information to one of those sites, you are subject to the privacy policy of the operator of that site. Make sure that you understand any website’s privacy policies before providing personal information.

MODIFICATIONS AND NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES. We are constantly striving to employ commercially reasonable methods in protecting the privacy of our members. Therefore, Taigan reserves the right to make changes to this policy at any time. Notification of all changes to the Privacy Policy will be promptly denoted within this policy at the top of the page for 30 days.

SECURITY. All data collected from our members is securely stored at a hosted data network provider located in New Jersey and California. We employ multiple communication safeguards such as website encryption, passwords and physical security to ensure the security of the Personal Information that is entrusted to us. In compliance with applicable requirements and Taigan standards, several commercially reasonable methods to maintain data accuracy, prevent unauthorized access, and correctly use your Personal Information have been installed to prohibit security breaches. During the registration process, you must provide us with a member name and password, your name, address and a valid email address. It is your responsibility to keep your password strictly confidential.

Taigan uses a secure third-party gateway to process all credit card transactions, which are solely limited to applicable Taigan Gold membership fees and approved transactions with the Shops. Taigan’s Client Relationship Managers (CRM) will have limited access to transactions that have occurred between the members and retailers. This access does not include credit card information.

  1. By buying or selling goods or services through Taigan you agree to be bound by the Payment Provider's Privacy Policy which is located at http://promisepay.com/privacy and hereby consent and authorize Taigan and the Payment Provider to share any information and payments instructions you provide with one another and, to the extent required to complete your transaction, with any other third party service provider(s).

 

Taigan and its affiliates place great importance on protecting information transmitted to and from this website and will take commercially reasonable security precautions to protect all such information. However, Taigan cannot guarantee that any electronic commerce is completely secure, and website users and purchasers post and transmit information at their own risk.

SUMMARY. Taigan is committed to protecting the privacy and security of all guests, shoppers and Shops. If you have questions or suggestions regarding our Privacy Policy, please contact us at info@Taigan.com.
