We are a business you can trust:
About the information we collect online:
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this website and in our store. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via e-mail, in the store, or via other direct contact with you. We do not sell or rent your information to any outside parties. Occasionally, we may send promotional newsletters and e-mails to you. We may also use any personal contact information you provide to us to send you information about specials, new products or services, upcoming events or opportunities, and other invitations and notices.
What information do we collect?
We request personal information from you (which may include name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card information) when you contact us, request to receive communications from Twisted, or make a purchase. If you contact us with a question or request, we will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us.
When you make a purchase from Twisted in the store we will ask for your name, email address, phone number, and payment method. If you make a purchase online, by mail, or on the phone, we will also ask for your shipping and billing address. If you pay by check, we may keep a photocopy of your check. If you pay by credit card, we record the transaction, but we do not store your full credit card number. We also maintain pertinent information about you and your purchases in a secure database, including but not limited to the products you purchased, dates, payment types, and any discounts you receive. For example only, if you choose to participate in our frequent shopper program, we will keep track of your purchases and award you a $25.00 credit for every $500.00 you spend.
We may track, collect, and analyze anonymous website traffic information in aggregate, such as the number of visitors to the website, statistics of which areas within our website our users visit, and what types of browsers or operating systems our visitors use. When you visit the Twisted website, our server may also collect your Internet domain and IP address. We use this information as anonymous aggregate data that helps us develop and monitor our performance and track trends and statistics to improve your website experience. We do not combine anonymous information about your website visit with your personal information. We may provide this aggregated, non-personally identifiable information to other companies for purposes such as reporting and marketing.
As necessary, we need to share your information with trusted third-party companies that assist us in managing our operations and in accepting on-line purchase orders. For these purposes, we may transfer information between Twisted and our preferred service providers who use that information to conduct Twisted business. For example, they may handle Twisted’s credit card processing, e-mail distribution, information analysis, and promotions. We provide our preferred service providers with the information they need to perform their services and ensure that they protect your information at a level consistent with our standards. We require that third parties hold this information we provide in the strictest confidence.
This website may contain links to other sites which may take you away from our website. Please be aware that Twisted is not responsible for the privacy practices or information-gathering practices of other sites.
On rare occasions, we may disclose specific information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, when required by law, to enforce our website policies, or to protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety. We may also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation. We do not provide information to these agencies or companies for marketing or commercial purposes.
