This notice discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for each of the PIMPSTAR websites (each a “PIMPSTAR Site” and, collectively, the “PIMPSTAR Sites”).
Although our computer systems are currently based in Sweden, we operate internationally. Your personal data will be processed by us in Sweden where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as in North America. By visiting the PIMPSTAR Sites from outside of Sweden, you consent to the collection and processing in Sweden of your identifiable information.

We use the information that you provide to respond to your requests, assist our sales team to reach an appropriate audience, improve our stores and the PIMPSTAR Sites, manage our contests, and to communicate with you. Here are the types of information we gather.

If you have configured your browser with your e-mail address, this data may also be available to us.

A cookie is a file transferred from a website to the hard drive of your computer so that the website may track your activities on the website. Cookies, by themselves, do not let a website know any personally identifying information about you, such as your real name, address, etc., unless you previously provided that information at the website or have set your preferences in your browser to provide that information. PIMPSTAR does not collect personally identifiable information about any one person using cookies. Cookies technology allows PIMPSTAR to keep track of the sites you visit and store your preferences.

When posting a comment, you can do so under a pseudonym. If you do choose to post any information about yourself, please be aware that PIMPSTAR cannot control and assumes no responsibility for the collection, use or misuse of this publicly accessible information by other visitors to the PIMPSTAR Sites.
5. Surveys. Occasionally, PIMPSTAR will request you to fill out a user survey. Such surveys are optional to you, the users, but these surveys allow PIMPSTAR to better understand the demographics and interests of our users. Your responses in combination with the responses of our other users help PIMPSTAR to improve the PIMPSTAR Sites.
6. Contests. PIMPSTAR may occasionally run contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions sponsored by PIMPSTAR or our partners and sponsors. As part of entering the contest, PIMPSTAR may request your name, age, e-mail address and mailing address. PIMPSTAR may share such information with the third party sponsors. Any information supplied to a third party may be retained by such third party and will be out of the control of PIMPSTAR.

5. THE PRIVACY OF MINORS
1. PIMPSTAR believes that it is particularly important to protect the privacy of minors online. PIMPSTAR defines a “minor” as any person less than 15 years of age. PIMPSTAR does not knowingly share personal information about minor users with third parties without a parent’s permission.
2. PIMPSTAR recommends that parents review our Online Privacy Statement before allowing their children to access the PIMPSTAR Sites, especially the message board or blog areas. Children should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online. They should also be instructed not to fill out any forms or register at any domain without a parent’s knowledge and consent.
6. HOW DO WE PROTECT THE USER DATA WE COLLECT?
We employ several physical, electronic and managerial safeguards to protect collected user data.
1. All users should be aware while using any service where you disclose personal information online voluntarily, including on message, bulletin boards or blog, or through e-mail, that such information can be collected and used by others. If you use these services on the PIMPSTAR Sites and voluntarily provide any information on our blog areas, you do so at your own risk. PIMPSTAR cannot make any representations regarding the security of such transfer of information.
2. You should be aware that the PIMPSTAR Sites contain links to outside sites. PIMPSTAR is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
3. PIMPSTAR reserves the right to change or modify this Online Privacy Statement at any time by posting such change or modification on this page. Users should check this page regularly for such updates. However, we stand behind the promises we make, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of the affected customers.
4. This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal right in or on behalf of any party.
