Aisles of Life (‘the Site’) is committed to protecting your (‘the website visitor’s’) privacy. Our Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, disclose and protect your information. By visiting aislesoflife.com, you acknowledge and fully understand Aisles of Life’s Privacy Policy and freely consent to the collection of information and the practices described in this document.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you or your digital devices interact with our website, we may collect personal data and other details about you. Some of the information we may collect from you includes:

  • Personal Data That You Provide: This is information that could be used to identify you or which can be associated with you. We collect your personal details, such as your name, email address, telephone number, and physical address, when you voluntarily provide them. For example, when you follow or subscribe to the blog, when you leave a comment on one of our blog posts, or when you send us an email either directly or through our contact form. By voluntarily providing us with your personal data, you consent to our use of it under this Privacy Policy. You agree that such personal data may be transferred from your current location to us at Aisles of Life.
  • Non-Identifiable or Aggregated Data: When you interact with Aisles of Life, we may receive and store certain non-personally identifiable information. For example, your geo-location, browser version, browser type, cookies from your browser, and device ID. Such data is collected automatically using technology, such as Google Analytics and Facebook Analytics. Aisles of Life may store such details itself, or the data may be included in databases owned and maintained by third parties such as search engines and Ad networks.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

If you choose to provide us with your personal data for a particular reason, we may use your data in connection with that reason. For instance, if you send us an email with a particular concern, we will use the data you provide to answer your question or resolve your issue.

We may also use this information to share details about services, content, or opportunities we believe will interest you. If we do so, the marketing materials we send you will contain instructions on how you can opt out or unsubscribe from receiving similar communication in the future if you are not interested.

Additionally, Aisles of Life may use the information we collect from you to create new content or improve the quality of the services and products we offer.

OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AND OTHER INFORMATION

Any information we collect from you, whether by ourselves or through third parties, is an important part of our relationship with you, and thus, Aisles of Life will not sell, rent, or trade it. We may, however, share your information with third parties in some circumstances. For example, with our affiliate partners, analytics providers, customer service providers, marketing and advertising agencies, and in case of business transfers or mergers, among other scenarios requiring sharing information with third parties.

EXCLUSIONS

This Privacy Policy shall not apply to any unsolicited information you provide to Aisles of Life through other means. This includes information posted in public areas, such as in the comment sections of blog posts and pages. Any unsolicited information you choose to share publicly shall be deemed non-confidential, and Aisles of Life, as well as anyone else who comes across it, shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, distribute and exploit it without limitation or attribution.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

This Privacy Policy applies only to our site, Aisles of Life. To provide further details or for reference, the content we post may contain external links to other websites not operated or controlled by us (i.e. Third Party Sites). Please note that the policies and procedures described here do not apply to the sites we link to or their owners. We suggest contacting those websites directly to learn about their privacy policies.

AFFILIATE LINKS

This site uses affiliate links from partners such as Amazon and Etsy, meaning that we earn a commission if you purchase something by clicking our link. There will be no additional costs, and hence the price you pay for the products and services we recommend will be the same whether you use our affiliate links or go directly to the vendor’s website using a non-affiliate link.

DATA RETENTION

Aisles of Life retains the data we collect from you for as long as it is needed to conduct and operate our business or until you ask us to delete it. If you would like us to erase your data, you can contact us using the details below. Please note that we cannot control the data retention policies of third parties.

SECURITY

Aisles of Life cares about the security of your personal information, and hence, we maintain reasonable and appropriate physical, technical, and procedural safeguards to help keep it safe. However, no Internet, email, or other electronic transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. Thus, while we strive to use all the possible means to protect your personal data, we cannot and do not guarantee its absolute security. By continuing to use our website, you fully understand this.
