Usage and Website Activity Information
When you visit our Website, we or our third-party service providers may collect information about your use of the Website: your Internet service provider’s address, your location as determined by your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, the name of the website or advertisement directing you, your user agent, as well as your clicks and activity on our Website. In the future, we may use this information to understand how to make our Website more user-friendly to our customers, as well as to provide you with advertising that may be of interest to you. We do not serve interest-based advertising to users we identify as using our websites from EU IP addresses.

To prevent your data from being used by Adobe Analytics, you can download the Adobe Analytics opt-out browser add-on for Adobe Analytics. The Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics products we may use in the future collect only anonymized IP addresses for IP’s located in the EU.
We engage with customers on various social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Messenger, and Instagram. If you contact us on one of these platforms for customer service or otherwise, we may contact you via direct message. Those communications are governed by the policies of the relevant social media platform.
Cookies and other tracking technologies
To facilitate your purchases (future state only, not current)
We currently do not use a shopping cart feature or sell anything directly from our website. However, in the future, facilitating your purchase will possibly include the following: processing your order and payment, shipping the order, providing you with technical support and assistance, and communicating with you about the purchase by email. For example, we will contact you by phone, postal mail, or email to update you of the arrival of the package, to address any issues with the order, or to answer any questions you may have about your order. If you are located in the EU, we will contact you using the contact information you provide (e.g. email, phone, mailing address). The legal basis for this processing of your information is the performance of our contract with you.
How long do we keep your information?
You can request that we delete your personal information by sending an email request to [email protected]. We retain your information after you request such deletion for longer periods for specific purposes to the extent that we are obliged to do so in accordance with applicable laws and regulations and/or as necessary to protect our legal rights or for certain business requirements. For example, when we process your payments, we will retain this data for longer periods of time as required for tax or accounting purposes. Below please find a few additional reasons we would retain some data for longer periods of time:
Security, fraud & abuse prevention – to protect you, other people, and us from fraud, abuse, and unauthorized access.
Financial record-keeping – In the future, when you make a payment to The Iron Bird online, we will likely be required to retain this information for a period of time for purposes of accounting, dispute resolution and compliance with tax, anti-money laundering, and other financial regulations.
Complying with legal or regulatory requirements – to meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request, as required to enforce our terms of service, including investigation of potential violations.
