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.
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.

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.

Taigan uses a secure third-party gateway to process all credit card transactions, which are solely limited to applicable 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.
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.
