What Personal Information About Customers Does Bouf.com gather?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalise and continually improve your shopping experience at Bouf.com. We use the information to handle orders, deliver products and services, process payments, communicate with you about orders, products, services and promotional offers, update our records and generally maintain your accounts with us, display content such as wish lists and customer reviews and recommend merchandise and services that might be of interest to you. We also use this information to improve our store and platform, prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our website and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf.
Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: we receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future shopping for you, improving our store, and communicating with you. You provide most such information when you search, buy, bid, post, participate in a contest or questionnaire or communicate with customer service. For example, you provide information when you: search for a product; place an order through Bouf.com or one of our third-party sellers; make a purchase; provide information in your account (and you might have more than one if you have used more than one e-mail address when shopping with us); communicate with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise; complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form; compile wish lists or other gift registries, provide and rate reviews; and employ other personal notification services such as available to order-notifications.
As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as: your name; address and phone number; credit card information; people to whom purchases have been shipped (including addresses and phone numbers); people (with addresses and phone numbers) listed in settings; content of reviews and e-mails to us; the personal description in your account area; and financial information.
E-mail Communications: to help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from Bouf.com if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your opt in preferences in the Profile section of Your Account.
Information from Other Sources: we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. Examples of information we receive from other sources include: updated delivery and address information from our carriers or other third parties, which we use to correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily; account information, purchase or redemption information and page-view information from some merchants with which we operate co-branded businesses or for which we provide technical, fulfilment, advertising or other services; search results and links, including paid listings (such as Sponsored Links from); and credit history information from credit bureaus, which we use to help prevent and detect fraud and to offer certain credit or financial services to some customers.

Does Bouf.com Share the Information it Receives?
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with our affiliated businesses. In some cases, these businesses operate stores at Bouf.com or sell offerings to you at Bouf.com. In other cases, we operate stores, provide services or sell product lines jointly with or on behalf of these businesses. We make it clear when a third party is involved in your order fulfilment and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.
Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of Bouf Limited customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such offers, please adjust your opt in preferences in the your Profile section of your account at Bouf.com.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to Sign Out when you finish using a shared computer.
What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?
What Information Can I Access?
Bouf.com gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with Bouf.com for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. This list will change as our website evolves.
What Choices Do I Have?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of such Bouf.com features as Your Profile area. You can add or update certain information on pages. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the previous version for our records.
