SCOPE OF PRIVACY POLICY
This Privacy Policy describes how CLS Sportswear collects, uses, and shares information about you when you use our website with a homepage located at “clssportswear.com”, together with all products and services we may offer from time to time via our website and/or related social medial websites such as Instagram, Facebook, or otherwise through your interactions with us (our website, products, services, and social media pages, collectively, the “Services”). This Privacy Policy also describes your and our legal rights and responsibilities with respect to information which identifies you or which could be used to identify you such as your name and contact details, or your user account information, which we call “Personal Information” in the text below. “Personal Information” also may include information about how you use our website. CLS Sportswear takes very seriously its responsibility to protect the safety and security of your Personal Information that we process and is committed to respecting your privacy rights.

APPLICABILITY OF CLS SPORTSWEAR’S PRIVACY POLICY
This Privacy Policy is part of our Terms of Use that governs your access to and use of our Services. We will refer to access, use, transmission, and exchanges of information, availability or utilization of features, functions or activities, simply as “use” in the material below.

This Privacy Policy applies to Personal Information that we collect from or about you through the methods described below (see “Information We Collect” and “How We Use Your Information”) to provide the Services. This Privacy Policy applies regardless of the means used to access or provide the Services. This Privacy Policy also applies to our targeted content, including online offers and advertisements for products and services, which you may see on third party websites, platforms and applications (“Offer Sites”) based on your online activity. These Offer Sites may have their own privacy policies and terms and conditions. We encourage you to read them before using those Offer Sites.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to information from or about you collected by third parties such as CLS Sportswear’s service providers, including, but not limited to eCommerce solutions and third party payment gateways such as PayPal, Inc. and others.  The collection and use of your information by such third parties is governed by the relevant third party’s privacy policies, statements, and practices and under no circumstances are we responsible or liable for any third party’s compliance therewith.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to websites that link to CLS Sportswear’s website or websites that may be accessed through the Services. We may provide links to other websites that contain information that we believe may be useful to you or that you will find valuable. However, we have not investigated the security of those linked websites and you should not assume those sites have a privacy policy equivalent to ours. If you access such a third party website through a link we provide, you will be subject to the privacy policy of the new site. CLS Sportswear is not responsible for the contents of any linked webpages referenced from our website. If you have any questions regarding the privacy, security, or content of those sites, you should contact the appropriate contact(s) at those websites directly.

We will use this information to fulfill your requests and will not send marketing communications to your contacts unless they separately opt in to receive communications from us.

Information We Collect Automatically: In order to improve the overall quality of your online experience, CLS Sportswear, its partners, and/or vendors automatically collect certain information about you when you access or use our website or Offer Sites, interact with our emails or online advertisements, or when you transact business with us. Information we automatically collect includes:
Log File Information: We collect information about your use of our website, such as the type of browser you use, access date/times, pages viewed, your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address and the referring link through which you accessed our websites. We track and aggregate certain information about the visits to our website to analyze trends and statistics such as general traffic flow and feature usage related to CLS Sportswear’s website. We compile traffic-based statistics that show the numbers and frequency of visitors to our website and its individual pages.

Cookies: Our website, online advertisements, and emails use first and third-party “cookies”, pixel tags, and other technologies to automatically collect information about you such as browser type, pages viewed, links clicked, and other actions you take in connection with our websites, online advertisements, and email. We use this information for various purposes, including to facilitate web page navigation, display information more effectively, personalize your online experience, to understand how our websites are used by users, market our products and services, measure the success of our marketing campaigns, and for security purposes. We also use Google Analytics to compliment these services.

Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. You can adjust your browser settings to refuse all cookies or to inform you when a cookie is being placed on your hard drive. However, certain features of CLS Sportswear’s website may not work properly and you may be required to re-enter certain information each time you use our website.

INFORMATION WE DO NOT INTEND TO COLLECT
When you create an account on our website, you may provide us information such as your first and last name, e-mail address, password, birthdate and other info you provide. CLS Sportswear does not intend to collect and retain records of any sensitive personal information, data regarding minority status, or data received from third parties that is not expressly contemplated by this agreement or contractually authorized. We do not knowingly contact or collect information from persons under the age of majority in your state or province of residence. The Services are not intended to solicit information of any kind from persons under the age of majority in your state or province of residence.

SECURITY OF TRANSMISSION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.  Whenever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us and your selected payment method in a secure way – this information is not stored in our system.  When you submit payment, this communication happens directly between you via CLS Sportswear and the payment gateway selected (i.e. PayPal, Inc.). You can verify this transaction is secure by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment; however, the transmission of information via the Internet or e-mail is not completely secure and always carries some risk. Although we will do our best to protect Personal Information that you submit to us, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site through the Internet; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we use commercially reasonable procedures and security features to prevent unauthorized access.

HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We share your Personal Information under confidentiality agreements with, or obtain data from, third parties in the following ways:

Third Party Service Providers. We share your information with third party service providers who we work with or who manage our customer information and perform services on our behalf, such as hosting our e-commerce platform, fulfilling promotions, processing online payments, providing and maintaining website features, sending communications and products to our customers, and conducting surveys. Our third party service providers are only authorized to collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow the third party service providers to perform the services they provide to us. Certain third-party service providers, such as Paypal, have their own terms of use and privacy policies with respect to the information we are required to share with them in order to provide us with their services. For these third party service 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.

Legal Requirements. We may share information about you if necessary or appropriate to comply with laws or regulations or in response to a valid subpoena, court order, legal processes, or government request, or to protect the operations, privacy, safety, property, or when we believe it is necessary to share such information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or as otherwise required by law or to protect the public.

These third parties do not have any independent right to share your Personal Information. We will exercise reasonable measures to have the third parties to whom we disclose your Personal Information respect your Personal Information and comply with applicable data protection laws.

HOW WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION
We will store your Personal Information for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was collected, whether that is to provide services to you, for our own legitimate interests (described above), or so that we can comply with the law. We reserve the right to retain it to the full extent not prohibited by law. We may delete Personal Information in our discretion, so you should retain your own records, and not rely upon our storage of any Personal Information, content, or other data.

We will review the information we hold and when there no longer is a user, legal, or business need for us to hold it, we will either delete it securely or in some cases irreversibly anonymize it. When we delete any information, it will be deleted from our active databases but may remain in our archives.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and facilitate the correct use of Personal Information obtained through our website, we have put in place appropriate physical, technical, and operational measures to safeguard and secure the Personal Information we collect online against unauthorized access, unlawful use, accidental loss, corruption, or destruction.

We use technical measures such as password protection to protect your data and the systems where they are stored. However, messages you send to us through the Internet or otherwise electronically may not be secure. We recommend that you do not send any confidential information to us by email. If you choose to send confidential information to us, you accept the risk that a third party may intercept this information.

We make reasonable efforts to keep your information safe and secure while shopping. We protect your online order and Personal Information by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. All the data that travels between your computer and our servers is SSL encrypted, and then stored on a computer that is not connected to the Web. To make sure you are accessing a secure server, look at the lower left or right hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. An un-broken key or closed lock (depending on your browser) indicates that SSL is active in your window. Some versions of browsers and firewalls don’t permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you’ll be unable to connect to the server so you won’t have to worry about mistakenly placing an order through an unsecured connection.

LOCATION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION / YOUR PARTICULAR CONSENT
You are giving us the following particular express, voluntary, and informed consent to a few activities relating to your Personal Information that is disclosed in providing goods and services to you, or for a purpose directly related to such purpose:

Consent to International Transfer and Disclosure of Personal Information: CLS Sportswear is located in the United States (“U.S.”) and is subject to the applicable laws of the United States (where data privacy laws are less stringent than in the European Union and certain other jurisdictions). We will store and process information we receive about you, as described in this Privacy Policy, in the U.S.

Some of the recipients of Personal Information as specified above may be located in countries that do not provide a level of data protection equivalent to that set forth by the European Union and some other jurisdictions. If you submit any Personal Information or choose to access or use the Services offered by CLS Sportswear such as our website, you consent to such disclosure, transfer, process, and storage of information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and subject to such applicable laws which may include access by law enforcement and other government entities including courts and tribunals.

Consent to Electronic Notice If There is a Security Breach: We will take reasonable measures to safeguard your Personal Information and prevent such information from unauthorized access, disclosure, or use. However, there can never be a guarantee of data security.

We also work with third parties such as Google and Facebook to manage our advertising on other websites. Our third party advertising partners may use cookies or similar technologies on our website and other websites to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests, or to display ads that link back to our site. For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s educational page. You can opt-out of some, but not all, online behavioral based advertising by clicking here or by using your browser settings to block cookies or notify you when a cookie is set.

If you do not want CLS Sportswear to send you email or postal mail regarding CLS Sportswear or its Services, you can choose not to provide your Personal Information to CLS Sportswear, even though it might be necessary to make a purchase or to take advantage of certain features on our Services. You may also manage, update and correct the information you provide. If you choose not to give us certain Personal Information, you can still use many aspects of our website. However, you will not be able to access website areas that require account registration.

If you would prefer not to receive marketing emails sent by CLS Sportswear, simply click on the “unsubscribe” link included at the bottom of any of those emails. If you opt out of receiving marketing emails, we may still send you other types of messages, such as purchase receipts, information about shipments, or emails about your user account.
