Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand how we will use and protect your personal information. This policy describes the personal information we collect about you, why we collect it and how we use it. The Privacy Policy also describes the choices you can make about how we collect and use your information. We will not collect or share your personal information with anyone except as described in this Policy. The Website is not directed to individuals under the age of 18 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under 13.

Information we receive from other sources.

We may receive information from you if you use any of the websites we operate or access the other services we provide (see below). We also work with third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers) to fulfill your orders and may receive information about you from them.

 

 How does Careismatic use my information?

 

Information you give us.

  • We will use this information to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us and to provide you with the information, products and services that you request from us.

  • We ask that, unless specifically requested, you not send us and you not disclose any sensitive personal information (e.g., Social Security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background or trade union membership) on or through the website or otherwise to us.

 

Information we collect about you.

We will use pseudonymized and/or aggregated portions of your information:

  • to administer the Website and for internal operations including data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes;

  • to improve the Website to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer; and as part of our efforts to keep the Website safe and secure.

We may share your information with business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you.

 

​We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • If we are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us about our customers will be one of the transferred assets.

  • If substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us about our customers may be one of the transferred assets.

  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms of website use or terms and conditions of supply and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our customers, or others.

  • Except as described above, we do not share, rent or sell any information we collect online to any unaffiliated third party.

 

What are cookies? How does Careismatic use cookies on its site?

A cookie is a small data file that websites often store on your computer's hard drive when you visit their sites. A cookie may contain information, such as a unique user ID that websites use to track the pages of the sites you've visited. We use cookies but do not store personally identifiable information in your cookie.

 

We will use cookies to collect technical information about where you are on the internet (e.g. the URL you came from, IP address, domain types like .co.uk and .com), your browser type, and the country and telephone area code where your computer is located, to keep you logged in (if you have signed into your website account) and/or provide you with a continuous interactive website experience tailored to your region and language preferences.

 

We also use pixel tags to collect non-identifiable and/or pseudonymized information about how you view the Website. A pixel tag is an invisible tag placed on a website, not on your device, for tracking activity on that website. When you access those pages of the Website, pixel tags generate a notice of that visit. Pixel tags usually work in conjunction with cookies.

 

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. Your web browser's help function should tell you how to do this. Alternatively, you can find information about how to do this for all the commonly used internet browsers at http://www.aboutcookies.org/default.aspx. This website will also explain how you can delete cookies which are already stored on your device. If you turn off cookies, though, we will not be able to keep you logged into the site or recognize you as a registered user, which allows you to access your account information.

 

Your Data Processing Rights

 

We take reasonable steps to help ensure that the personal information we collect from you is accurate, complete and current. You may request access to your personal information and request that erroneous or inaccurate personal information be updated. You may also request that your personal information and account be deleted. You may invoke these rights by contacting us at 818-671-2100 or by sending an email to customercare@careismatic.com. We will respond promptly to your requests in accordance with applicable law. For your protection, we will only implement requests with respect to the personal information associated with the e-mail address that you use to send us your request and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We may decline to process requests that jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical or would cause us to take any action that is not permissible under applicable laws. Additionally, as permitted by applicable laws, we may need to retain certain personal information for a longer period for record keeping purposes, such as retaining records relating to your purchases for warranty or accounting purposes.

 

 

How do I remove my information from e-mail, phone and postal mailing lists?

We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. If you prefer not to receive information from us or our affiliated brands, please let us know at any time by either e-mail or postal mail, or by using the "opt-out" link provided at the bottom of each promotional e-mail. If you contact us by e-mail or postal mail, please be sure to include your e-mail address and full name.

 

In addition, if you ask us to remove your name and address from our e-mail or postal mailing list, we will have to maintain your name in a "do not contact" file to ensure that we can honor your request.

 

What about links to other websites and services?

The Website may contain links to other sites that are not under our control. These websites have their own policies regarding privacy. You should review those policies before visiting the websites. We have no responsibility for linked websites, and we provide these links solely for the convenience and information of our visitors.

 

Jurisdiction and Cross-Border Data Transfer

The Website is controlled and operated from the United States and is not intended to subject Infinity to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than the United States. Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have offices or in which our third-party service providers reside.

 

​Your California Privacy Rights

If you are a resident of California, you have the right under the California “Shine the Light” law (Cal. Civil Code § 1798.83) to request, by regular or electronic mail, a list of the categories of personal information that were shared by Careismatic with third parties for direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, the names and addresses of those third parties, and if the nature of their business cannot reasonably be determined from their name, examples of the products and services marketed by them. However, as described above, except where necessary to fulfill an order from you for goods or services or as otherwise permitted by applicable law, Infinity will not share your data with third parties unless you consent to such disclosure. Alternatively, you may opt out at any time from any information sharing previously consented to. For these reasons, Infinity is not required to respond further to California customer inquiries under the California Shine the Light law.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY NOTICE

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) requires that business disclose certain additional information about how it collects, uses, discloses and sells the personal data of a California resident. This California Privacy Notice is part of this Privacy Policy. This section only applies to California residents. The rights discussed in this section do not extend to individuals who are not California residents.

 

California Residents' Rights Under the CCPA

Right to Know/Right to Access General Collection and Use of Personal Information. Under the CCPA, California residents have the right to request that we disclose what information we have collected, used, disclosed, or sold over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request for such information, we will disclose to you, based on your specific request:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you over the past 12 months.

  • The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you over the past 12 months.

  • The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected over the past 12 months.

  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information over the past 12 months.

  • The categories of third parties with whom we shared your personal information over the past 12 months.

  • If we disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, the personal information categories that each category of recipients obtained.

  • If we sold your personal information for a business purpose, the personal information categories that each category of recipients purchased.

 

Right to Request Deletion. Under the CCPA, California residents have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we have collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete your personal information from our records, and direct our service providers to do the same, unless an exception applies.

 

Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information. Under the CCPA, California residents 16 years old or older have the right to direct businesses that sell personal information to not sell your personal information (the "right to opt-out").

 

Right to Opt-In to Sales of Personal Information for Minors Under 16. Pursuant to the CCPA, we do not sell the personal information of California residents we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the "right to opt-in") from either the consumer who is 13-15 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.

 

Right to Non-Discrimination. Under the CCPA, California residents have the right not to be discriminated against for having exercised the rights established by the CCPA. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

 

How California Residents Can Exercise Their Rights

Exercising Your Right to Know. For California residents to exercise the right to know/right to access information, you or your authorized agent may submit a verifiable consumer request using the contact information below.

 

You may only make a verifiable consumer request to know or request for access twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must include information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative and describe your request in enough detail that we can properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

 

Upon receiving a request to know, we will confirm receipt within 10 days. If we are able to verify your request, we will make our best effort to respond within forty-five (45) days of our receipt of your request. If we require more time (up to 45 additional days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will not disclose information to you if we cannot verify your identity.

 

Exercising Your Right to Request Deletion. For California residents to exercise the right to request deletion, you or your authorized agent may submit a verifiable consumer request by using the contact information herein.

 

Upon receiving a request to delete, we will confirm receipt within 10 days. If we are able to verify your request, we will make our best effort to respond within forty-five (45) days of our receipt of your request. If we require more time (up to 45 additional days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. In our response, we will specify the manner in which we have deleted your personal information, in accordance with the CCPA. We will not delete information if we cannot verify your identity.

 

Exercising Your Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information. For California residents to exercise the right to opt-out if we engage in selling your personal information

 

You may also exercise your right to opt-out by calling us at the toll-free phone number listed below.

 

We will act upon your request to opt-out within fifteen (15) days of receiving the request. We will instruct the third parties to whom the information has been sold in the 90 days prior to your request not to further sell the information, and we will notify you when this instruction has been completed.

 

We will not act upon a request from authorized agents if the agent does not submit proof that the agent has been authorized by you to act on your behalf. We will not act upon a request if we believe it is fraudulent.

 

Your consumer requests may be submitted by either:

 

Calling us at 818.671.2100

Email us at: customercare@careismatic.com

Only you as a California resident, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable request to know/request for access, request for deletion, or request to opt-out.

 

How We Verify California Residents' Requests to Know/Requests for Access and Requests for Deletion

We will not respond to requests to know/requests for access or requests for deletion unless we can verify your identity to a reasonable degree of certainty. To verify your identity, when feasible, we will use information about you that we already have; however, we may need to request additional information, which we will use only for the purposes of verification. We may also use a third-party identity verification service. The information we need to verify your request will depend on the nature and scope of your request. Upon receipt of your request, we will notify you if we need additional information from you to verify your request.
