Privacy

We respect your privacy

We do not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send marketing messages without your consent. Similarly, if you email a product to a friend or refer a friend to the ModSock website or our promotions, we will use your friend's email to send them the email you requested. You and your friend's email addresses will only be used for this purpose unless permission is otherwise granted.

ModSock does not share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies without your consent except that:

ModSock provides information to its agents and trusted service providers and contractors for limited purposes, such as: processing credit card transactions; communicating with customers; providing customer service; managing information on our behalf; and enhancing the ModSock website features and functionality. In such cases, we require that these parties agree to use the information solely for the purpose for which we provided it to them and in accordance with our privacy policy.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

We only release necessary information when appropriate

ModSock may also release information (including your name, addresses, telephone number, and account activity) when we, in our sole discretion believe that such release is necessary or appropriate to:

  • comply with law;
  • comply with subpoenas, warrants, court orders, government investigations, or other legal process;
  • enforce or apply the terms of any of our user or license agreements;
  • investigate or respond to allegations of fraud, intellectual property infringement, or other unlawful activity;
  • investigate fraud or similar claims; or
  • protect the rights, property or safety of ModSock, our users, or others.

ModSock may disclose non-personally-identifiable information to third parties in aggregate form to potential business partners and investors.

Payment:

Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
