Our Privacy Policy

Updated June 25, 2018

When you visit QuietSelf.com, our system automatically notes which browser and Internet provider you used for access. We collect this navigational information to help us design our pages, so we can provide the majority of our customers with the best possible shopping experience.

We share identifiable information only with those parties entrusted with the processing of your account, the fulfillment of your digital subscription, and for providing you with information and updates about our membership service. We have established procedures to protect your privacy, which we vigorously uphold. Of course, this policy does not apply to information we are required to disclose by law.

We may use the information in aggregate form for internal business purposes, such as generating statistics and developing marketing plans. Rest assured: We will never sell or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties without your consent.

We may retain other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include data analysis firms, customer support specialists, webhosting companies, and fulfillment companies (e.g., companies that fill subscription orders or coordinate emailings).

Such third parties may be provided with access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions, but they may not use such information for any other purpose.

Cookies

“Cookies” are small pieces of information stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not contain any personally identifying information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that. A cookie lets you browse the store, put items in your shopping cart, and return hours later to continue where you left off, with the items still in the cart. Cookies help us give you a better web site, by letting us monitor what’s working and what isn’t through site traffic analysis. By using our web site, you agree that we may collect and use this information. Please be assured that accepting a cookie does not give us access to your computer or personal information under any circumstances. If you do not want to use cookies, you are free to set your browser to refuse them. But please be aware we won’t be able to process your orders made on any computer with cookies disabled.

Newsletters, Surveys, and Contests

You receive a newsletter from QuietSelf only if you:

  • have subscribed to a newsletter on our website

If you ever want to opt-out of receiving e-mail, you can do so from the link of any newsletter you receive from us.

You’re also welcome to contact us if you simply have questions about our privacy statement or your dealings with us or this site. We are always happy to promptly address any concerns you might have.

We sometimes organize contests and send out surveys with specific questions regarding QuietSelf and its subscription service. Participation is completely voluntary. If you choose to take part in these campaigns, your e-mail address, your answers and other information given will be stored.

Third-Party Services

The careful handling of your personal information is important to us and we would never sell this information.

We hand over information that we receive to third parties solely for the purposes described in the following:

In certain circumstances, under force of law, QuietSelf must disclose information to third parties. This occurs notably when law enforcement authorities oblige QuietSelf to disclose information relating to a suspected crime or abuse. We may also disclose information to third parties in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person. We may also disclose your personal data where such disclosure is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, whether in court proceedings or in an administrative or out-of-court procedure. Cases regarding companies who are inquiring about credit card abuse are included. However, personal data will not be given to companies for commercial purposes.

Certain functions are performed on our behalf by other service providers QuietSelf might enlist, such as processing payments, database analysis or promotional activities. In these cases, only the personal information necessary to perform these tasks will be accessible by these service providers. Furthermore, this information is not allowed to be used for any other purposes and the enlisted service providers are required to treat this information in accordance with this privacy policy.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. that QuietSelf uses to help analyze how the site is used. This service uses cookies that generate information about your use of the QuietSelf website, which is then transmitted to and stored by Google on servers. This information will be used by Google to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for QuietSelf and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

Google Remarketing

Remarketing is Google’s program for “interest-based advertising”, which QuietSelf uses within the scope of its marketing operations. A special browser cookies is stored on the user’s computer in order to complete this process. This allows QuietSelf, Google or third-party services to serve users special ads when visiting other websites.

Facebook

The QuietSelf website utilizes the Facebook pixel tracking code. The Facebook Pixel is used for Facebook Ads and Facebook Analytics. Each Facebook user can control their ad settings from here:
https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen

Under “Advertisers you’ve interacted with” there is a tab named “Whose website or app you’ve used” where you can review advertisers whose ads you may be seeing currently because you visited their website or app that uses Facebook technology.

Mailchimp

QuietSelf uses MailChimp for sending newsletter and targeted emails.

Further information can be found in MailChimp’s privacy policy:

As we continuously develop our business, it may occur that we sell or buy individual subsidiaries or business units. In such transactions, customer information is usually transferred together with the transferred part of the company. Your data would continue to be subject to the previously existing privacy statement.

Security Guaranteed

We use secure socket layers (SSL), an advanced encryption technology that protects your credit card information to ensure online ordering. SSL encrypts all ordering information, including your name, address and credit card number, so no one can read it in transit (including us). When you place an order, your credit card information is captured and stored separately from your order to further protect against unauthorized access. We use secure technology, privacy protection controls and restrictions on employee access, to safeguard your personal information.

Further, know that you can pay for your QuietSelf.com subscription with confidence. We have partnered with Authorize.Net, a leading payment gateway since 1996, to accept credit cards and electronic check payments safely and securely for our customers.

The Authorize.Net Payment Gateway manages the complex routing of sensitive customer information through the electronic check and credit card processing networks. View this online payments diagram to see how it works.
