Personal Information Protection Policy for Healingscents
At Healingscents we are committed to providing our website visitors, subscribers and/or customers with exceptional service. As providing this service involves the collection, use and disclosure of some personal information about our subscribers protecting their personal information is one of our highest priorities.
What’s our policy?
Healingscents is committed to protecting the privacy of its website visitors, email newsletter subscribers, affiliates, ambassadors, and customers and we have taken strong measures to ensure that the information we gather from you will be secure and confidential.
SECTION 1 – WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
When you purchase something from our online store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address in order to fulfill your order.
BROWSING OUR WEBSITE
When you browse our website and online store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system. This information helps us improve our website and it does not include personally identifiable information.
With your permission, you may opt-in to our email newsletter and we will send you emails about our company, products, tips, promotions, and other updates. You can opt-out at any time. An unsubscribe link is provided in every email newsletter you receive from us. We will never share your email address.
We use technologies to improve our website and market our website. Technologies may include third-party services like Google ads (AdWords), social products (like the +1 button) or analytic tools (Google Analytics). Through our website certain information is automatically sent to Google. This includes, for example, the web address of the page that you're visiting and your IP address. We may also set cookies on your browser, or read cookies that are already there. We do not collect personally identifiable information.
Similarly, apps that partner with Google can send us information such as the name of the app and an identifier that helps us to determine which ads we've served to other apps on your device, although it does not collect personally identifiable information.
How we use the information sent by your browser
When you visit websites or use apps that use Google (or other) technologies, we may use the information we receive from those websites and apps to, for example:
• Make ads more effective
• Provide reports of ads activity
• Help website and app owners using Google Analytics to understand how visitors engage with their sites or apps
• Improve your Google+ experience
• Detect and defend against fraud and other security risks to protect users and partners
How you can control the information sent to Google
Here are some of the ways you can control the information that is shared by your web browser when you visit or interact with Google services on partners' sites across the web:
Ads Settings helps you control the ads by Google that you see across the web. You can learn how ads are selected for you, opt out of certain categories and block specific advertisers. Learn more about advertising.
Many sites across the web use Google Analytics to understand how visitors engage with their sites or apps. If you don’t want Analytics to be used in your browser, you can install the Google Analytics browser add-on. Learn more about Google Analytics and privacy.
Google makes it easy for you to make recommendations for your friends - for example, by clicking the +1 button on content you like. Some of your +1s may show your name and Google+ profile photo in ads, but you can opt out if you don't want to appear in ads. You can also visit the +1 tab on your Google+ profile to review and manage all of your +1's. Learn more about how to get to your +1 tab.
Incognito mode in Chrome allows you to browse the web without recording webpages and files in your browser history. Cookies are deleted after you've closed all of your incognito windows and tabs, and your bookmarks and settings are stored until you delete them. Learn more about cookies.
SECTION 2 – CONSENT
How do you get my consent?
When you provide us with personal information to complete a purchase transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like opting in to our email newsletter, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
How do I withdraw my consent?
If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at email@example.com or mail us at:

SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
SECTION 4 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. For example, a payment gateway to process your credit card payment for purchases on our website.
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 these providers will handle your personal information.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in 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.
When you click on links on our website, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
