Matrix Privacy Policy

(Last Updated March 2017)

 

Matrix Industries, Inc. (“Matrix,” “we,” “us” and/or “our”) is dedicated to protecting your personal information and informing you about how we use it. This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy” or the “Policy”) is intended to provide information to our visitors (“you,” “your”) about how we collect, protect, share and use your information when you visit the Site. This Privacy Policy outlines how and when Matrix collects, protects, shares, and uses information that can identify you individually (“Personal Information”), such as your name, email, telephone number, or payment information. Personal Information does not include information that is anonymous, aggregated, or can no longer be used to identify you as an individual.

 

Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information through the Site. By using or submitting information through the Site, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into Matrix’s Terms of Service at https://www.matrixindustries.com/conditions-of-use. Any capitalized term that is not defined in this Policy shall have the meaning given to it in the Terms of Service.

 

This Privacy Policy covers the privacy practices of Matrix only. This Policy does not apply to the practices of third party websites, services or applications, including third parties with which we partner. These third party services are governed by each such third party’s privacy policy. Matrix is not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of technology platforms other than that of Matrix, and Matrix is not responsible for the failure of unaffiliated third parties to honor their privacy obligations.

 

1.  INFORMATION WE COLLECT

 

When you interact with us through the Site, including the purchase of Watches, we may collect Personal Information and other information from you, as further described below:

 

Information You Provide

 

We collect Personal Information from you when you provide such information, such as when you create an account (“Account”), purchase a Watch, or contact us with inquiries. If you purchase a Watch, you will be asked to provide Personal Information such as your email address, first and last name, billing and shipping addresses, and other information that identifies you.

 

Information We Collect Automatically

 

Site Usage Information. Matrix may use a variety of technologies that passively or automaticallycollect information about how the Site is accessed and used, including your browser type, device type, operating system, application version, the pages served to you, the time you browse, preceding page views, and your use of particular features of the Site. This statistical data helps us understand what is interesting and relevant to users of the Site so that we can best tailor our content to you.

 

Device Identifiers. Matrix also automatically collects an IP address or other unique identifier forthe computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively “Device”) you use to

 

access the Site. A “Device Identifier” is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a web site or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. We may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Site, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends, track users’ web page movements, monitor against theft and fraud, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

 

Session Trackers. In operating the Site, we may use cookies and similar session trackingtechnologies (“Session Trackers”). Session Trackers help provide additional functionality to the Site, customize users’ experiences with the Site and help us analyze Site usage more accurately for research and product development purposes. We (including third parties that we work with) may place session trackers on your Device for security purposes, to facilitate navigation of the Site, and to personalize your experience while using our Site.

 

If you would prefer not to accept Session Trackers when using the Site, follow the instructions provided by your website or mobile browser (usually located within the “Help”, “Tools” or “Edit” facility) to modify your Session Tracker settings. Please note that if you disable Session Trackers, you may not be able to access certain parts of our Site and other parts of our Site may not work properly. As a result, we recommend that you leave Session Trackers turned on when accessing the Site because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Site’s features.

 

Web Beacons. In addition to Session Trackers, we may use web beacons (also known as “clearGIFs”), which are transparent graphic images placed on a web page or in an email and indicate that a page or email has been viewed or tell your browser to get content from another server. We use web beacons to measure traffic to or from, or use of, our online forms, tools or content items and related browsing behavior and to improve your experience when using the Site. We may also use customized links or other similar technologies to track hyperlinks that you click and associate that information with your Personal Information in order to provide you with more focused communications.

 

Non-Personal Information

 

Additionally, we may modify and combine Personal Information in a manner that does not personally identify you or any other individual and thus, no longer constitutes “Personal Information”. We may use this non-Personal Information, such as aggregate user statistics, demographic information, and usage information, for any lawful purpose.

 

Information from Third Parties

 

We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, we may receive information about you from outside records of third parties, such as marketing-related or demographic information. We may supplement the information we collect about you through the Site with such information from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you and/or to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. If we combine such data with information we collect through the Site, such information is subject to this Privacy Policy unless we have disclosed otherwise.
