Cookies / Tracking Technology / Logfiles

Like many websites, the Site employs cookies and web beacons (also known as clear GIF technology or “action tags”) to speed up your navigation of the Site, recognize you and your access privileges, and track your Site usage.

Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored as text files by your Internet browser on your computer’s hard drive. Most Internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to refuse cookies from websites or to remove cookies from your hard drive, but if you do, you will not be able to access or use portions of the Site. We have to use cookies to enable you to select products, place them in an online shopping cart, and purchase those products. If you do this, we keep a record of your browsing activity and purchases. THE SITE’S COOKIES DO NOT AND CANNOT INFILTRATE A USER’S HARD DRIVE TO GATHER A USER’S CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. Our cookies are not “spyware.”

Web beacons assist in delivering cookies and help us determine whether a web page on the Site has been viewed and, if so, how many times. For example, any electronic image on the Site, such as an ad banner, can function as a web beacon.

We may use third-party advertising companies to help tailor site content to users or to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness (such as the web pages visited or products purchased and in what amount). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is not linked to any personal data collected by us.

As an example, Facebook collects certain information via cookies and web beacons to determine which web pages are visited or what products are purchased. Please note that any information collected by Facebook via cookies and web beacons is not linked to any customer's personal data collected by us.


Sharing Of Information

We may share your personal data within the Supernova Group to allow us to provide our goods and services to you and to market products sold by other Supernova Group entities, including to the entities on the Controller List.

We may use trusted third parties to provide us with services (e.g., technical support for the Sites, fulfilment of your order, payment processing, marketing, data analyses firms, web-hosting companies, and support services) that may have access to your personal data. All service providers are permitted to use data only for the purpose of performing services on our behalf.

We may share your personal data with competent authorities, courts and bodies in response to a court order, summons or subpoena, regulatory requests, or as permitted or required by law when we reasonably believe it is necessary or appropriate to investigate, prevent or take action against illegal activities, suspected fraud, or situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person. 

We may also disclose your personal data to any third party that acquires, or is interested in acquiring, all or part of our assets or shares or that succeeds us in carrying on all or part of our business.


Commitment To Data Security

To protect your personal data, 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 this 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 data, we cannot guarantee complete security. 100% complete security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline.


Retention Of Information

We will retain your personal data as necessary for the provision of the goods/services, internal analytical purposes, or to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce agreements (e.g. settlement). The criteria used to determine the retention periods include: 

  • how long the personal data is needed to provide the goods/services and operate the business; 
  • the type of personal data collected; and 
  • whether we are subject to a legal, contractual or similar obligation to retain the data (e.g., mandatory data retention laws, government orders to preserve data relevant to an investigation, or data that must be retained for the purposes of litigation or disputes).

  • request access to personal data we hold about you;
  • the correction of your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete;
  • request that we erase your personal data;
  • opt-out of any marketing communications that we may send you and object to us using/holding your personal data if we have no legitimate reason to do so;

  • withdraw your consent at any time; and
  • the portability of personal data – i.e., ask for a copy of your personal data to be provided to you or a third party in a digital format.
