  • Where we need to do so in order to provide our Site and Services to you;

  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your fundamental rights do not override those interests; and

SHARING PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES 

We are committed to maintaining your trust and we want you to understand when and with whom we may share Personal Information collected about you. We do not share your Personal Information with any third parties except as set forth herein.

We may disclose your Personal Information to outside individuals and/or companies that help us bring you the products and Services we offer and to create, operate, and maintain our Site. For example, we may work with third parties to: (a) manage a database of customer information; (b) assist us in distributing emails; (c) assist us with direct marketing and data collection; (d) provide data storage and analysis; (e) provide fraud prevention; (f) provide customer service; (g) provide order fulfillment and/or delivery services; and (h) provide other services designed to assist us in developing and running our Site and maximizing our business potential. We require that these outside companies agree to keep all information shared with them confidential and to use the information only to perform their obligations to us.

If we seek investors or go through a business transition, including but not limited to, a merger, acquisition by another company, or a sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information may be shared as part of the negotiation of the transaction and will likely be among the assets transferred in the event of a sale or partial sale of our assets.

We may disclose your Personal Information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Site, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the Site or the public.

TARGETED ADVERTISING AND REMARKETING

You may see advertisements for our products and/or Services on other websites and mobile applications because we work with third party advertisers to engage in remarketing and retargeting activities. Through our relationships with these advertisers, we can target messaging to our users by interest-based, demographic, contextual, and other means. These third-party advertisers track your online activities over time and across websites and mobile applications by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of third-party cookies, web server logs, and web beacons. They use this information to show you advertisements that may be tailored to your individual interests. The information our advertising partners may collect includes data about your visits to websites and mobile applications that participate in the relevant advertising networks, such as the pages or advertisements you view and the actions you take on the websites or apps. This data collection takes place both on our Site and on third-party websites and mobile applications that participate in the advertising networks. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. Some third-party advertising companies may be advertising networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, which offer a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies.

If you are a California resident, you may ask us to refrain from sharing your information with certain of our affiliates and other third parties for their marketing purposes. See the “Privacy Notice for California Residents” here. 

PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION 

We strive to keep your Personal Information private and safe. We take commercially reasonable physical, electronic and administrative steps to maintain the security of Personal Information collected, including by limiting the number of people who have physical access to database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the transmission of data over the internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we will use reasonable means to ensure the security of information you transmit through the Site, any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. We cannot guarantee that such information will not be intercepted by third parties, and we will not be liable for any breach of the security of your Personal Information resulting from causes or events that are beyond our control, including, without limitation, your own act or omission, corruption of storage media, defects in third-party data security products or services, power failures, natural phenomena, riots, acts of vandalism, hacking, sabotage, or terrorism, and we are not responsible for unauthorized circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site. You should also keep any account credentials and sensitive information secure and promptly report to us any suspected or actual security issue relating to the Site. 

All online payment transactions are handled through a third-party payment processor, for example Venmo and PayPal. We will not have access to your credit card number or other such financial data. In the event that you provide your credit card number or other such financial data over the phone or via email for the purposes of a payment transaction, we will use our best efforts to keep such information secure and will delete/shred credit card information upon completion of the applicable transaction. We strongly prefer and suggest that you complete all payment transactions through our online mechanisms.  

THIRD PARTY WEBSITES 

Our Site may contain links or references to websites operated by third parties, or you may have come to our Site using a link found in another website (“Third Party Website(s)”). We do not endorse Third Party Websites or the goods and/or services they provide. We do not make any representations or warranties about any website that may be linked to the Site. Third Party Websites are independent from Pine 9 Holsters, and we have no control over, or responsibility for, their information, products or activities. Our privacy practices may differ from Third Party Websites. If you provide Personal Information to a Third Party Website, you are subject to their privacy policy. Please make sure you understand a Third Party Website’s privacy policy before providing any Personal Information.

If you use a Third Party Website or application (e.g. Facebook, Google +, Twitter) to access our Site or your account, your activities on such Third Party Websites are governed by their privacy practices. The privacy policies of Third Party Websites may differ significantly from ours, and we have no control over the manner in which they collect, store, or process data. 

YOUR CHOICES ABOUT HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION AND OPTING OUT

The subsections below outline the ways in which you can control how your Personal Information is used.

Tracking  

You can set your browser to refuse some or all cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. Please visit your specific browser’s instructions for doing this. The “Help” function on most browsers contains information on how you can set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies, or you can disable them entirely. If you opt out of cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of various features of the Site that are available to other users. For example, we may use cookies to recognize you by name when you return to this Site so you don’t have to login again and provide your password each time. If you use more than one browser, you will need to change each browser’s settings in order to refuse cookies. 

Promotional Offers

If you do not wish to receive our email promotional offers, you may opt-out by checking the relevant box when we collect your information, logging into your account to update your preferences, or clicking on the “unsubscribe” link found in emails we send to you. Please allow up to ten (10) business days for changes to your email preferences to take effect. During that time, you may continue to receive email communications from us. Opting out of receiving our communications will not affect receipt of service-related communications, such as payment confirmations, delivery status updates, information related to data breaches, or other such communications for which we have a legal obligation to inform you or to prevent fraud/harm to our Site, our business, and/or third parties.

Advertising 

If you do not want us to use the Information we collect to deliver advertisements to you, you can opt-out. 

You may opt out of Internet-based and mobile advertising on your mobile device by visiting TRUSTe’s Ad Preference Manager, currently available at https://preferences-mgr.truste.com/, the Digital Advertising Alliance’s consumer choice page, currently available at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, or the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) opt out tool currently available at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/.  

When using the ad industry opt out tools described above, note that: (a) if you opt-out we may still collect some data about your online activity for operational purposes (such as fraud prevention), but it will not be used by us for the purpose of targeting ads to you; (b) if you use multiple browsers or devices you may need to execute this opt out on each browser or device; and (c) other ad companies’ opt-outs may function differently than our opt-out, and we have no control over the practices of any third-parties.  We do not make any representations or warranties about such opt-out services. Such services are independent from us, and we have no control over, or responsibility for their performance.

Analytics

Our products and services use Google Analytics and its associated tracking technologies to help display our ads on other sites, and to help us manage and optimize our online advertising efforts. To opt out of Google Analytics Advertising Features, visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/181881?hl=en or you may access the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser Add-on, currently located at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Do Not Track 

Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. At this time, we do not respond to browser “do not track” signals, but we do provide you the option to opt-out of interest-based advertising. 

DISCLOSURE FOR LEGAL PURPOSES  

You hereby authorize us to disclose any of your Personal Information pursuant to judicial and administrative proceedings and to law enforcement or government agencies if we are legally required to do so. You also authorize us to disclose Personal Information if we believe the disclosure is necessary or appropriate in the event of an investigation of improper or illegal conduct in connection with the Site, such as fraud, misrepresentation, intellectual property infringement, or other activity that may put us at risk for liability.
