When and how do we collect your information?
We collect "personal" information from you only when you provide it to us. For example, if you purchase a product from us, we collect your name, mailing address, credit card number, and telephone number. If you sign up to receive our newsletter, we will collect your email address. We reserve the right to collect other personal information about you if you decide to utilize our Services, or take advantage of special offers made by us or our marketing partners.
What we do with your information?
Your privacy is of utmost importance to us. Under no circumstances will we rent, share or trade your e-mail address with other companies for their marketing purposes without your consent. Your personal information is used by us for internal purposes such as processing your order and keeping you informed of your order’s progress. Sometimes you may receive information from us about special offers, new features, and new services we think you'd like to learn about. However, we may transfer information to our marketing partners should you take advantage of special offers made by them. And, we may make our customer's mailing addresses available to carefully screened companies whose products or services might interest you.
The personal information you give us when you place an order or utilize one of the Services is used to process and fulfill your order or request. We also use your personal information for our own internal purposes, such as providing customer support or providing, maintaining, evaluating and improving the Services and the Website. We use our customers' non-personal information to track their use of the Website and the Services and for other internal purposes. We also make our customers' non-personal information available, in aggregate form, to marketing partners, advertisers and others in order to assist us in improving our services and reaching customers with information that is relevant to them
Absolute Abstract partners with one or more credit card processing companies to assist us in processing your payment. These companies, however, do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for secondary purposes. The information you provide us is used for processing and fulfilling your order. The information is also used to contact you if we have challenges while processing your order.
In the future, we may disclose the personal and non-personal information of our customers to any successor-in-interest of ours (such as a company that acquires us). In the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your information will likely be among the assets transferred. Also, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law and when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process.
You have the option to opt-out of certain communications:
If you are no longer interested in receiving our e-mail announcements and other marketing information, please e-mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your complete name and mailing address (as well as your e-mail address) if you prefer not to receive direct mail postcards or catalogs. Note that you may still receive customer service related communications from us.

IP address and cookies:
We do collect "non-personal" information from you, such as your browser type, the URL of the previous website you visited, your ISP, operating system, and your IP address. Please note, "non-personal" information cannot be easily used to personally identify you. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. Your IP address also may be used to gather broad demographic information and to recognize customer traffic patterns and site usage. This information aids us in merchandising and in developing the design and layout of the site.
In addition, like almost all e-commerce websites, we use "cookies." Cookies are bits of information that are stored on your computer by your web browser. Although our cookies don't store any of your personal information, they do allow us to do things like keep items in your shopping cart between visits or during the same visit or provide you with a more personalized user experience. Whether you want your web browser to accept cookies or not is up to you. If you haven't changed your computer's settings, most likely your browser already accepts cookies.
How do we protect your information?
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number on our registration or order forms), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us from unauthorized access or disclosure, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Other than our limited security guarantee, we assume no liability for any disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third party access or other acts of third parties, or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control.
Our Services are intended for users ages 13 and older. We will not knowingly collect or use any personal information from children that we know to be under the age of 13. We will also delete any information in our database that we know originates from a child under the age of 13. Prospective users between the ages of 13 and 17 can only use the Services under their parents' or legal guardian's supervision. If you are between the ages of 13 and 17, you, your parent, or your legal guardian may request that we delete any of your personal information in our database and/or opt-out from receiving communications from us.
