When you place an order with Equalitude we require your full name, mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, credit card number, and credit card expiration date. This information is used to fulfill your order, including payment and shipping, and to notify you of your order status.

To ship your order, it will be necessary for us to share your name, address, and telephone number with the shipping company of our choice. Shipping companies require this information to deliver your products.

Upon completion of your order, your credit card information is deleted from our database to ensure your protection.

We offer a free newsletter, available through Equalitude.com, used to keep you informed of specials, deliver information of interest, and more. To sign up for the newsletter, we ask for your e-mail address. We will deliver the newsletter to your e-mail address, and you will have the option to stop your receipt of the publication at any time. We only require your e-mail address for the purpose of the newsletter, and you will only receive our newsletter if you so choose.

We occasionally offer contests and special promotions on our site. In order to take part in these opportunities, we will need to gather your name, e-mail address and mailing address. This information is used to notify winners and administer the specific contest or promotion.

We may request your participation in online or offline surveys via e-mail, telephone, postal mail or web pages. Surveys are strictly voluntary and your participation and/or answers do not prohibit or influence your use of our website. Furthermore, if you do participate in a survey, you may decline to answer any question, and all answers are held in strict confidence according to our privacy standards.

Survey data is used to improve customer experience.

When you make purchases at our site, we monitor the information enabling us to better serve you. We use the general purchasing information to help us determine what products and services you are most interested in. We also keep track of site traffic using log files to help us better determine what areas of our site are providing our customers with the greatest value. We use this information to fine tune our site and tailor it to you and other visitors to our site. From time to time, we may use information we collect from you to notify you of important or exciting changes to our website, new or changing services we offer, and other special offers we think may be useful to you. If you decide you would rather not receive this information, send us an e-mail message and we will remove you from our mailing lists until you inform us otherwise.

Privacy Protection – How It’s Done

The online shopping process at Equalitude.com is safe and secure. Whenever you are in the process of placing an order, accessing personal information, or providing personal information, we use a secure server. Powerful, industry-standard SSL secure server software provides encryption for all information sent between your computer and ours. Additionally, we protect our server and all customer data against unauthorized use physically or electronically.

Cookies

The so-called cookie is a small piece of information that is stored on your computer’s hard drive by your web browser and which may be accessed by our server. The cookies we provide to your browser do not contain any personal information, but they do allow us to provide special services to you while you visit our website. Cookies simplify the ordering process by remembering information about you, allow the use of the shopping cart function, and enable online ordering.  If you do not wish to accept cookies, most browsers allow you to prevent them from being accepted and saved to your hard drive. If you choose not to use cookies, you will be unable to place online orders at our website.

Do Not Track Headers

Equalitude.com, itself does not respond to the “Do Not Track” HTTP Header.

Disclosure of Information to Third Parties

Equalitude.com does not currently sell, trade, or rent your personal information to any third parties.

We may merge customer data stored in our database with data from third parties for the purposes of enhancing and marketing products and/or services to customers.

We may provide aggregate statistics of our users to third parties in reference to traffic patterns, numbers of users, sales, and other site and customer information. This information will never provide any personally identifiable information on individual users.

Notifying You of Changes to the Use of Your Information

If at some point in the future there is a change to our information usage practices that affects your personal information, we will post the relevant changes on our website. You should check this posted privacy statement periodically for changes.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

This refers to information that does not, by itself, identify you as a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based on where you have shopped for on our web site in several ways. This information is then compiled and analyzed on both an individual and an aggregate basis. Such non-personally identifiable information may include demographics and interest data. We use data from Google’s Interest-based advertising or 3rd-party audience data (such as age, gender and interests) with Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics’ Demographic and Interest Reporting Tools to figure out the general types of people who visit our store. Additional non-personally identifiable information may also include the Web site’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) information as well as your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. A URL is the global address of documents and resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route or reroute information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, which allows web servers to locate and to identify your computer. Computers require an IP address in order for users to communicate over the Internet.

Summary

At Equalitude, your privacy is one of our top priorities. We realize that your personal information is very important to you, just as you are very important to us. It is necessary for us to collect certain private information from you in order to make shopping at our site possible. However, we do not collect more information than is necessary, nor do we use that information in ways other than what it was given to us for and the uses posted above.

This Privacy Policy for Equalitude.com as stated herein is effective from June 6, 2019.

Terms of Sale

PLEASE READ THIS POLICY CAREFULLY. IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS, INCLUDING LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS THAT APPLY TO YOU.

These terms and conditions apply to the purchase and sale of merchandise through www.equalitude.com (referred to as the “site”). By placing an order for merchandise, you represent that you are over eighteen years of age and agree to be bound by these terms and conditions. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, you should not obtain merchandise from this site. These terms and conditions are subject to change by Equalitude (sometimes referred to as “us” or “we”) without prior notice at any time, in our sole discretion. You should also review carefully our Privacy Policy before placing an order for merchandise through this site.

Order Acceptance and Cancellation

We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept, decline, or limit your order for any reason, whether or not your credit card has been charged. If your credit card account has been charged and your order is canceled, you will receive a prompt refund to your credit card account. Once an order has been placed, it cannot be canceled by you. We are not responsible for orders that are not received due to technical difficulties transmitting to or within our site.

Payment Terms and Sales Taxes

Payment must be received by us prior to shipping your order. We accept payment by VISA, MasterCard, AMEX and Discover Card for all purchases. You represent and warrant that: (a) all credit card information you supply to us is correct, (b) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, (c) you will pay all charges incurred by you, including any applicable sales taxes (currently, only on orders shipped to New York). All payments must be in United States dollars. Your current billing address and telephone information must be included with every order.

Changes in Merchandise

We constantly update our merchandise, and may discontinue merchandise at any time without notice. We will not be liable for the lack of availability of merchandise through our site. All pricing for the merchandise available on our site is subject to change.

Shipping Policy

We endeavor to ship all merchandise the next business day after processing each order and offer USPS First Class Mail Shipping. Should you require other additional shipping options, please contact us directly and we will be happy to assist you. We use only national carriers (UPS, FedEx, DHL and USPS) with Next Day, 2 Day and Ground delivery options available for most items. Rural addresses, as determined by the carrier, may require additional time for delivery and, as with addresses containing a P.O. Box or APO Box number, and delivery by DHL or USPS, do not qualify for guaranteed on time delivery. No C.O.D. orders can be accepted. All merchandise purchased is F.O.B. our fulfillment center. Your signature at time of delivery may be required. If you refuse delivery of any merchandise, you authorize us to charge a $25.00 fee to your card account on file with us to compensate us for return shipping and handling. There may be occasional delays beyond our control and the normal shipping time. If the delay is more than five days, we will send you an e-mail message notifying you of the delay. If the delay is less than five business days, we will ship the merchandise as soon as it is received. You must notify the carrier and us of non-receipt of any merchandise within fifteen days from the date of purchase. Failure to notify the carrier and us within this 15-day period constitutes your waiver of all claims for loss of merchandise. International customers are responsible for all import duties and custom charges for merchandise sent outside of the U.S. and you authorize us to charge your credit card account for any and all unpaid duties and charges.

Promotions

By accepting a promotional offer you agree to pay the full retail price (including any applicable sales tax) of the promotional merchandise or service in the event that your order no longer qualifies for the promotional offer due to a return or exchange of merchandise and in such event you authorize us to charge the full retail price of the promotional merchandise or service to your credit card account on file with us or deduct that amount from any refund, exchange or online store credit otherwise due. Promotions may include free merchandise, free shipping, discounts based on quantity and/or any other promotional value.

Advertising Disclaimer and Trademarks

In the event merchandise is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to a typographical error on our site, we shall have the right to cancel any orders placed for merchandise at the incorrect price, whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card account charged. If your credit card is charged and your order is cancelled, we will immediately issue a credit to your account.
