ReadySlim (“we”, “our”, “us”) is committed to safeguarding your privacy rights and ensuring that your personal data is protected. This Privacy Policy helps you understand our information collecting practices and explains our use of your personal data when you use our website (the “Site”) and/ or have interactions with us on social media platforms or adverts and content on third party websites.

Collection of Information

We collect the information that identifies, relates to, describes, or is reasonably capable of being associated with a particular consumer (“personal information”) along with information that does not directly identify a particular consumer (“non-personal information”). Both personal and non-personal information will be collected from you in several different ways on this Site:

Information directly from you
We collect information from you when you place an order for any of ReadySlim’s products, sign up for our newsletter, or otherwise provide ReadySlim with personal information willingly. Specifically, we collect the following categories of information:

  • Identification Information
    Information which you provide when purchasing our products or signing up for our newsletter, such as your name, postal address, phone number, and email address etc. 
  • Financial information
    Information which you provide when purchasing our products, such as your credit, debit, or other payment card number.
  • Commercial Information
    Information relating to the products you purchased, obtained, or considered.
  • Other Information
    You may voluntarily provide other information to ReadySlim, such as responses to surveys or contests or suggestions for our improvements.

  • Internet Activity Information
    We collect information about how you use and interact with the Site or an advertisement, including browser type and language, your IP address and other personal identifiers.

  • Geolocation Data
    We may sometimes collect geolocation data on the Site.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your computer or electronic device when you access the Site. Other similar technologies include web beacons, local shared objects ('flash cookies'), action tags and single-pixel gifs. These technologies can be used to track users' actions and activities, and to store information about them. For the following purposes, we use these cookies and/ or similar technologies on this Site to:

  • Target out marketing campaigns and advertisements
  • Keep track of the items stored in your shopping cart
  • Obtain information about your use of the internet, your preferences and some/ other online movements

The information we obtain from our use of cookies will not usually contain your personal data. While we may obtain information about your computer or any other electronic device which you use to access the Site, such as your IP address, your browser and/ or other internet log information, this information will not usually identify you personally.

In most cases we will need your consent in order to use cookies on the Site. The exception is where the cookie is essential in order for us to provide you with a service you have requested, or essential to the inherent functionality of the website (e.g. the cookie is to enable you to store our products in a shopping basket and/ or to use our check-out process).

We may use third-party advertising companies to help tailor the content on the Site to users or to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may use cookies and web beacons to measure the effectiveness of the advertisements (such as the web pages visited or products purchased and in what amount). Some information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons will be linked to some personal information collected by ReadySlim. For instance, Facebook collects certain information via cookies and web beacons to determine which web pages are visited or what products are purchased by the customers. Please note that some information collected by Facebook via cookies and web beacons will be linked to customer’s personal information collected by us.

To turn off cookies, you can set your browser not to accept cookies. However, as a result,  some of our website features may not function.

Log Files
The Site server automatically recognizes the Internet URL from which you access the Site, which is always a true case in many websites. We may also log your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, Internet service provider, order verification, internal marketing, date/ time stamp for system administration and troubleshooting purposes. (An IP address may indicate the location of your computer on the Internet.)

Do Not Track
In the case, your browser settings may allow you to set a “Do Not Track” preference. This Site does not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signals, just like many other websites and online services.

From Other Sources
We may collect information from data aggregators or data providers to supplement information you provide to us.  

Our primary purpose to collect your personal information is to provide you a secure, efficient and customized experience. For example, we may use your personal information to:

Commitment to Data Security

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow the industry’s best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. Your personally identifiable information is kept secure and encrypted during the type of transmission.

For payments we are using a certified payment gateway provider. All credit card details are encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). All payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. We therefore do not see or keep your credit card information.

While we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. 100% complete security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline and we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your information will be secure in all circumstances.
