Mitchell Simone, LLC d/b/a BenSherman.com (“BenSherman.com”) operates the website http://www.BenSherman.com. It is BenSherman.com’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, BenSherman.com collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. BenSherman.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how BenSherman.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, BenSherman.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
BenSherman.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. BenSherman.com does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to BenSherman.com’s websites choose to interact with BenSherman.com in ways that require BenSherman.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that BenSherman.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at BenSherman.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with BenSherman.com– by submitting a request to a Service Provider, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal information required to process those transactions. In each case, BenSherman.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BenSherman.com. BenSherman.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
BenSherman.com may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, BenSherman.com may monitor the most popular services on the BenSherman.com site. BenSherman.com may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, BenSherman.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
BenSherman.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on BenSherman.com’s behalf or to provide services available at BenSherman.com’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using BenSherman.com’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
BenSherman.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, BenSherman.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when BenSherman.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of BenSherman.com, third parties or the public at large.
For Service Providers, we may use financial information or payment method to process payment for any purchases made on our website, to pre-qualify Service Providers to participate in our service network, to protect against or identify possible fraudulent transactions, and otherwise as needed to manage our business.
If you are a registered user of a BenSherman.com website and have supplied your email address, BenSherman.com may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with BenSherman.com.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
BenSherman.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
