PRIVACY POLICY

Thank you for shopping at SUMI. Ensuring the privacy and security of your personal information is very important to us. Our privacy policy outlines the personal identifiable information (PII) collected, how and why we use the information and the choices you have to restrict our usage of this information.

Collected Information

Any personal identifiable information (PII) you provide to us during checkout (i.e.: name, address, telephone number, email address, billing address, ship-to address and credit card information) is maintained under the secure Yahoo shopping cart system. Credit card information generally expires after 30 days on the system. We may use your PII for future marketing initiatives and to help us improve our website presentation and your overall shopping experience, provided that your consent was given.

It is our policy not to sell or release information to anyone about visitors to this site or customers of SUMI without prior consent or a court order. We may disclose specific personal information about you if required by law, governmental request or court order, if based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with such law, request or court.

We only use “session cookies” to collect product and purchase information from the pages you access during each visit. “Session cookies” are bits of information that are automatically stored on your computer. They expire after a brief amount of time and are used so you can shop and maintain a list of items ordered in your shopping cart and have a total due calculated. No personally information such as your name, address or any financial information are contained in cookies, and none are collected or required unless you decide to complete an order.

When visiting any Internet site your unique address called an "IP address" will be recorded. SUMI does not release any information about the collection of this address to any third party. No images, files or cookies are downloaded from third party servers.

Any comments, positive or negative, about our product or service collected during communications with SUMI may be posted on our publications. We will only post your first name and city/state, if available. If you wish to remain anonymous or not to be posted, please email hello@shopsumi.com to let us know or include a non-disclose phrase within your comment.

Email Communications

By signing up to receive our updates, you agree to receive SUMI updates, offers and other commercial messages. Subscribers will get advanced notice of sales, new merchandise and other news. Email addresses collected are only used internally. We respect your privacy rights and will not sell or rent your email address to other companies. If you would like to unsubscribe, you can do so in our latest email communication or contact us at hello@shopsumi.com. Your email will be removed from our email list immediately. Please note that you will still be able to receive any transactional communications (e.g. order confirmation, etc).

Secure Shopping

Orders placed on our site are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, so you can rest assured that your transactions are protected. SSL is the accepted protocol used to protect data that is sent between a web site and a web browser. An encrypted SSL connection requires that all data passed between the browser and the web site server be encrypted by the sender and decrypted by the receiver. SSL can prevent unauthorized parties from gaining access to sensitive, confidential, or personal information such as a phone numbers or addresses.

SSL also provides peace of mind to web site visitors. When an SSL-enabled connection is established in a web browser, you will see a lock icon in your browser, indicating that any data transferred between the web site and the browser is secure.

With SSL implemented on both the client and server, information sent via the Internet can be trusted to arrive privately and unaltered to our server. In order for SSL security to work, you must use an SSL enabled browser. Most browsers, version 3.x and later, support SSL. If you still have any concerns about ordering electronically, feel free to email us with the product you wish to order. You can also print your shopping basket page and mail your order to:

SUMI
Attn: Order Processing
616 Grant Ave,
San Francisco, CA 94108

*Please note that email is not encrypted and is not considered a secure means of transmitting credit card numbers. We will never ask for sensitive information via email.
