and how we protect your privacy.
Essential information we collect
In operating our store, it is essential for us to capture some information about your device, such as your IP address and information related to your visit when you browse our store. For example, this might include time-stamp, the last page or product you visited, the indication that you logged in. We do that in order to:
● remember who you are after you log in so that you do not need to authenticate at each click;
● monitor if our website is running with the high performance we are dedicated to providing;
● let you browse between products without having to start back from the home page at each click;
● remember if you put something in your shopping cart before you decide to checkout; and
● control that your data is processed securely.
Order information you expressly provide
If you buy something from our store, we will need more specific information about you. To fully process your order and ship the merchandise you selected, we need your personal data such as your first and last name, your email address and your shipping and billing address. We also use your contact and order information to send you communication related to the processing of your order. We will ask you to provide this information in our “checkout page” before letting you finalize your purchase with the payment. We may also send you emails with new products, sales or other product promotions, or content relevant to the Whipped Cream Swimwear brand. You can opt out at any time by clicking "unsubscribe", or contacting Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can sign up for an account if you’d like. This will make us happy because it confirms your interest in our store. It should also make you happy because we will remember your information and, when you decide to buy our products, you do not have to provide all of your information over again -- you just have to log-in. By registering your account, and providing this personal information, you imply that you consent to our collecting it. We also provide you the possibility to easily withdraw your consent and delete your account. Just connect with us at the contact details at the bottom of the page. Or email email@example.com. All information collected is kept confidential; Whipped Cream Swimwear does not provide, for profit, or otherwise, information to outside parties except in connection with providing you eCommerce and marketing services regarding the Whipped Cream Swimwear brand. We may disclose your information if required by law, or if you violate our terms of service. It is your responsibility at all times for maintaining the confidentiality of any password or other access information of your account.
If you have started to buy one of our products, but have not completed the purchase, you may have provided partial information, such as your email. In that case, we might send you an email to remind you about your interest. If you are not comfortable in receiving further emails of this kind, we will give you a simple opportunity to opt-out. Your privacy means a lot to us and we will stop sending you these communications right away.
If you have completed a purchase, we will send you an email to ask you to review the product you bought. We want to be sure that you love your purchase or if you have other product feedback, and would like to share your experience with other customers.
We also use some specific information related to your visit, such as the timestamp of your visit, the page or the product you viewed, where you are coming from (if you came to our store because you clicked on an advertisement or you just opened our direct link). This is very similar to the “essential information,” but we use it to provide you with a personalized experience. The information on your visit provides us with insights on your interests and allows us to send you relevant communications. We capture this information through cookies, called a "beacon," that we allow you to block. The cookie settings on this website are set to 'allow all cookies' to give you the very best experience. Please click Accept Cookies to continue to use the site.
Other uses of personal data
Several Services are provided by third-parties, in order to make your customer experience exceptional. Email marketing, pop-up discount coupons, and embedded forms, would not be possible without the employment of trusted and reputable companies. 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 for Whipped Cream Swimwear and you.
We use third parties for:
● The use of email marketing, so we can update you on new products, sales and other product promotions, or new Whipped Cream Swimwear blog post alerts we think you'll enjoy.

● The use of allowing us to present you with re-targeting advertising based on your previous interaction with WhippedCreamSwimwear.com.
● The use of helping us see how our search engine optimization key words relevant to our products are preforming, so that we can ensure the customers who are searching for products related to the keywords or terms we use can easily find us.
