Privacy Policy

Wel­come to miko-greetings.com (the “Site”). We under­stand that pri­vacy online is import­ant to users of our Site, espe­cially when con­duct­ing busi­ness. This state­ment gov­erns our pri­vacy policies with respect to users of the Site who vis­it without trans­act­ing busi­ness (“Vis­it­ors”), and users who trans­act busi­ness with us either dir­ectly or through the order forms (“Cus­tom­ers”), includ­ing those who have registered a user account and those who have not.

Personally Identifiable Information

Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion” refers to any inform­a­tion that iden­ti­fies or can be used to identi­fy, con­tact, or loc­ate the per­son to whom such inform­a­tion per­tains, includ­ing, but not lim­ited to, name, address, phone num­ber, fax num­ber, email address, fin­an­cial pro­files, and cred­it card inform­a­tion. This list does not rep­res­ent the spe­cif­ic inform­a­tion col­lec­ted on this Site, but simply lists examples of what qual­i­fies as Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able. Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion does not include inform­a­tion that is col­lec­ted anonym­ously (that is, without iden­ti­fic­a­tion of the indi­vidu­al user) or demo­graph­ic inform­a­tion not con­nec­ted to an iden­ti­fied indi­vidu­al.

What Personally Identifiable Information is collected?

We col­lect no Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion from Vis­it­ors who do not inter­act with any forms (com­ments, con­tact form, regis­tra­tion, orders). All forms con­tain fields that clearly identi­fy the inform­a­tion col­lec­ted. We col­lect the fol­low­ing inform­a­tion from our Cus­tom­ers: name of com­pany, ship­ping address, phone num­ber, and the name and email address of the con­tact per­son.

What Non-Personally Identifiable Information is collected?

We may col­lect users’ IP addresses for secur­ity pur­poses and to ana­lyze geo­graph­ic­al reach.

What organizations are collecting the information?

In addi­tion to our dir­ect col­lec­tion of inform­a­tion, our third party pay­ment ser­vice pro­vider (PayP­al) may col­lect the same or addi­tion­al Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion from Cus­tom­ers. We do not con­trol how our third party ser­vice pay­ment pro­vider uses such inform­a­tion, but we work only with reput­able pro­viders.

How does the Site use Personally Identifiable Information?

We use Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion mainly to ful­fill order requests on the Site. We may also use it to cus­tom­ize the Site. We may email Cus­tom­ers about their orders and about new offer­ings. We may also use Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion to con­tact Vis­it­ors and Cus­tom­ers in response to spe­cif­ic inquir­ies, or to provide reques­ted inform­a­tion.

With whom may the information may be shared?

Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion about Cus­tom­ers may be shared with our pay­ment ser­vice pro­viders and postal ser­vices for the sole pur­pose of ful­filling orders. Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion may also be vis­ible to our web­site man­ager for the sole pur­pose of oper­at­ing this Site. Our web­site man­ager is held to the same strict pri­vacy policy as ourselves and does not make use of Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion nor inter­act with it except as data.

How is Personally Identifiable Information stored?

Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion col­lec­ted through miko-greetings.com is stored in our online data­base, which is pro­tec­ted from unau­thor­ized third party access by com­mer­cially reas­on­able secur­ity meas­ures. Cus­tom­er inform­a­tion is also stored in our off­line records of sales and Cus­tom­er address book.

What choices are available to users regarding collection, use and distribution of the information?

Vis­it­ors who do not wish any Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion to be gathered can avoid using any of our online forms (com­ments, con­tact, regis­tra­tion, orders). In the rare instance we might con­tact Com­menters dir­ectly rather than by on-site reply, they may opt out of receiv­ing unso­li­cited inform­a­tion from us or being con­tac­ted by us by respond­ing to any emails received. Cus­tom­ers can con­tact us by email if they wish to request that all Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able record-keep­ing be kept off­line. We will still need to store order­ing inform­a­tion online if order­ing is done online, but the Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion involved can be obscured even in the data­base, if need be, by place­hold­er data that refers us to the off­line records for com­pany name and ship­ping inform­a­tion.

Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information to comply with law.

We will dis­close Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion in order to com­ply with a court order or sub­poena or a request from a law enforce­ment agency to release inform­a­tion. We will also dis­close Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion when reas­on­ably neces­sary to pro­tect the safety of our Vis­it­ors and Cus­tom­ers.

How does the Site keep Personally Identifiable Information secure?

Admin­is­trat­ors of the Site gain access to Cus­tom­ers’ Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion using a secure login user­name and pass­word. Secur­ity soft­ware, updated on a reg­u­lar basis, provides extra pro­tec­tion against any mali­cious attempts to gain access. While we take these com­mer­cially reas­on­able meas­ures to main­tain a secure site, no online secur­ity sys­tem can be guar­an­teed 100%. Elec­tron­ic com­mu­nic­a­tions and data­bases are sub­ject to errors, tam­per­ing and break-ins, and we can­not guar­an­tee or war­rant that such events will not take place. We will not be liable to Vis­it­ors or Cus­tom­ers for any such occur­rences. How­ever, the Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion we col­lect does not include any fin­an­cial account inform­a­tion, as that inform­a­tion is giv­en by the Cus­tom­er dir­ectly to our pay­ment ser­vice pro­vider (PayP­al) without Miko Greet­ings hav­ing access to it.

How can Customers correct any inaccuracies in Personally Identifiable Information?

Cus­tom­ers who have a registered user account may update Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion through their user account pro­file. Cus­tom­ers who have not registered for a user account may update pre­vi­ously sub­mit­ted Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion or cor­rect any inac­curacies by con­tact­ing us by email or through the con­tact form.

Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?

Our mech­an­ism for Vis­it­ors and Cus­tom­ers to delete/​deactivate Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion from the Site’s data­base is by con­tact­ing us by email or through the con­tact form. How­ever, because of backups and records of dele­tions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor’s entry without retain­ing some resid­ual inform­a­tion for a cer­tain time. A Vis­it­or or Cus­tom­er who requests to have Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion deac­tiv­ated will have this inform­a­tion func­tion­ally deleted, and we will not sell, trans­fer, or use Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion relat­ing to that indi­vidu­al or com­pany in any way mov­ing for­ward.

Cookies

Cook­ies” are pieces of code that are gen­er­ated at the time of a user’s vis­it to the Site and stored on the user’s com­puter so the Site can veri­fy the user is still the same user. Cook­ies expire accord­ing to the sched­ule or date encoded in them or when a spe­cif­ic event occurs. For instance, a Ses­sion Cook­ie expires when the user logs out or closes the browser.

Are Cookies Used on the Site?

We use Ses­sion Cook­ies to main­tain a Customer’s logged-in status and give them access to con­tent they could not access without being logged-in. We use Com­menter Cook­ies to allow com­menters the con­veni­ence of hav­ing their details remembered in case they wish to post a new com­ment with­in a year of the first. We may at times use Google Ana­lyt­ics cook­ies to ana­lyze the way Vis­it­ors use our Site. How­ever, such cook­ies do not store Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion.

How does Miko Greetings use login information?

Miko Greet­ings may use login inform­a­tion, includ­ing, but not lim­ited to, IP addresses, ISPs, and browser types, to enforce secur­ity meas­ures, ana­lyze trends, admin­is­ter the Site, track a user’s move­ment and use, and gath­er broad demo­graph­ic inform­a­tion.

What happens if the Privacy Policy Changes?

We will let our Vis­it­ors and Cus­tom­ers know about changes to our pri­vacy policy by post­ing such changes on the Site. How­ever, if we were ever to change our pri­vacy policy in a man­ner that might cause dis­clos­ure of Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Inform­a­tion, we would con­tact each Vis­it­or or Cus­tom­er to allow them to request dele­tion to pre­vent such dis­clos­ure.
