By visiting the Store and/or ordering Products from cleverbridge, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy"). Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms shall have the meanings assigned to such terms set forth in the General Terms and Conditions of Sale that you can find at and which incorporates this Privacy Policy by reference.

What This Privacy Policy Covers

This Privacy Policy describes cleverbridge's use of Personal Information and Anonymous Information that we collect when you visit the Store or order Products. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the use of your Personal Information that is collected by third parties that cleverbridge does not own or control or that do not support cleverbridge in providing the Store or Products.

"Personal Information" is information that is personally identifiable like names, addresses, email addresses, or phone numbers, as well as other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing.

"Anonymous Information" means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not permit the identification of individual persons.

We collect and use Personal Information and Anonymous Information as described in this Privacy Policy from the visitors of the Store and from customers who order Products.

BY VISITING THE STORE, ORDERING PRODUCTS, OR OTHERWISE SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH THE STORE, YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AS WELL AS OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES) WHERE LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY.

Personal Information We Collect

We collect the following Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily:

  • Our registration process to create your Account requires you to provide cleverbridge with your name, your mailing address, phone number and email address as well as a username and password of your choice. For customer authentication purposes, we also collect the answer to a password hint question.
  • In order to purchase Products through the Store, you have to provide (and we will collect) your name, billing address, email address, and all the information necessary to charge your credit card, including your billing zip code and credit card number, or any other information required in connection with other payment methods that we may offer.

Personal Information Collected Via Technology

As you use the Store, certain information may also be collected passively, including your internet protocol (IP) address and the browser that you use to visit the Site. cleverbridge also stores a small text file called a "Cookie" on your computer to store your login information (if any) and your personal preferences for the Store. cleverbridge may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). While you will still be able to use the Store and order Products if you disable Cookies in your browser, certain parts of the Store may not function as effectively.

Since the foregoing information may be collected when you are signed into the Store, this information may be associated by us with Personal Information that we have collected from you.

Personal Information From Other Sources

We may receive Personal Information about you from other sources like telephone or fax, or from third parties that provide services for us in connection with the Store. We may add this information to the information we have already collected from you via the Store.

Use Of Information We Collect

In general, Personal Information you submit to us is used by us either to provide you with the Products that you order, respond to requests that you make, to better tailor the features, performance and support of the Store, and to offer you additional information, opportunities, and functionality.

We may also use your Personal Information to provide you with notifications related to your use of the Store, such as electronic newsletters or promotional emails, should you request to receive such communications from us.

We may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the information personally identifiable to you. We may also create Anonymous Information on how you use the Store or what Products were ordered. We may use this Anonymous Information for internal purposes, such as analyzing usage patterns so that we may enhance our Site, and we also reserve the right to use and disclose any Anonymous Information at our discretion.
