We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

 

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

 

We use and disclose the information that we collect about you to maintain, improve, and administer our website, operate our business, provide products and services that you request, administer your account, inform you about products and services that might be of interest to you, and personalize your online experience. In order to carry out certain business functions, such as order fulfilment, e-mail delivery, or marketing, we sometimes hire other companies to perform services on our behalf. We may disclose personally identifiable information that we collect about you to these companies to enable them to perform these services, but all agents and contractors are required to comply with all applicable laws, and are not authorized to use it for any other purpose than completing their contractual requirements to Alma Readings/Kate Volpe. For example, as a part of the normal process of completing your purchase, Alma Readings/Kate Volpe may provide your personal data to a third party payment processor, such as PayPal or Venmo depending on your chosen method of payment. Please be aware that, because of the limitations of the systems used by some financial institutions, the statement you receive from your credit card or financial institution may show the name of a third party payment processor, such as PayPal, Inc. or Venmo, instead of or in addition to the Alma Readings/Kate Volpe name.

Additionally, we use this Order Information to: communicate with you; screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and when in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
