Monsoon Commerce operates a website at www.monsooncommerce.com (the “Site”). This Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Monsoon Commerce does not own or control or to people that Monsoon Commerce does not employ or manage. The collection and use of your information by third parties (such as on third party websites and services that are linked to, referenced, advertised, or otherwise made available to you through the Site) are governed by those parties’ own policies. Before using such third party services or transacting with other users, you should familiarize yourself with their policies and practices with respect to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information.
Monsoon Commerce collects limited personal information from you, the user of the www.monsooncommerce.com website.
Monsoon Commerce uses information you provide or that we collect for a variety of purposes.
Monsoon Commerce is not in the business of selling your information, and we take your privacy very seriously. In the course of providing the Site to you and other users, we do make limited disclosures of your information to others for a variety of purposes.
Except as specified above, Monsoon Commerce does not share your personal information with third parties unless you have consented to the disclosure or Monsoon Commerce believes the disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process, or to cooperate with law enforcement activities, (2) protect and defend our rights and property, (3) protect our customers or users from misuse or unauthorized use of the Monsoon Commerce Site, or (4) protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public.
This Site has security measures in place to help reduce the risk of loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. When you place orders or access your account information, we use a secure sockets layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts all information during transmission. All of the customer data we collect is similarly protected against unauthorized access. We also employ other physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of personally identifiable information in our control. Nevertheless, in spite of our efforts to prevent third parties from intercepting or accessing your information (whether stored on our servers or during transmission), we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or communications will always remain private.
Monsoon Commerce is committed to protecting the safety and privacy of young people using the Internet. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13.
As specified in the Terms, Monsoon Commerce may from time to time revise this Policy. If we do, we will post those changes on this page and indicate the new Policy’s effective date so that you are always aware of any changes.
If you use the Site from countries outside the United States, please note that your personally identifiable information may be transferred to the United States as our Site is hosted on servers located in those countries. By using the Site, you consent to having your personally identifiable information transmitted to and processed in the United States.
In the event that all or a portion of Monsoon Commerce or its assets are acquired by or merged with a third party entity, Monsoon Commerce reserves the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from users in connection with such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In such a case, your information will still be subject to the terms of the Policy in place at the time of transfer.
This site contains links to other web sites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are moving to another web site. We encourage you to read the privacy statements and policies of these linked sites, as their privacy policies may differ from ours. In no event shall MCS be liable or responsible for the use and collection of data by these linked sites. Monsoon Commerce also operates websites at other locations on the internet as well as other services provided by its subsidiaries, Alibris, Inc. (“Alibris”) and Monsoon, Inc (“Monsoon”). Alibris and Monsoon maintain separate privacy policies addressing matters specific to their own services which can be found at http://www.alibris.com/policies/privacy and http://www.monsoonworks.com/privacy, respectively.
