Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which THE SOME collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a “User”) of the www.thesomeshop.com website (“Site”).
This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by THE SOME.

1.Personal Information

Below are the types of information we collect:
Information you give us: When you register with the Site or make purchases, we collect the following information – your name, ID, password, email address, billing and shipping address, phone number, and payment records. You can choose not to provide certain information, but you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features including customization and communication.
Automatic Information: We gather certain types of information when you interact with us through the Site or any of its related applications to help us personalize your shopping experience and provide more rewarding services. This type of information includes IP address, referral URL, traffic to and from other sites, ad data, and standard web log information. We may use “cookies” to obtain such information. You can find out more about our usage of “cookies” below:
Cookies and Other Technology. Like many sites, the Site employs cookies and web beacons (also known as clear GIF technology or “action tags”) to speed your navigation of the Site, recognize you and your access privileges, and track your Site usage.

(i) 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 web sites 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 to purchase those products. If you do this, we keep a record of your browsing activity and purchase. 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.”

(ii) 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.

(iii) 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 which web pages are visited or what products are purchased and in what amount). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is not linked to any personal information collected by us.

(iv) 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 information collected by us.

Information from Mobile Devices: When you download or use our app, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device. You may turn off location services on your device, but then you will not be able to benefit from some of our location-based services including targeted advertising, search results, and other personalization features.
Information from other sources including e-mail Communications: We might receive information about you from other sources including your e-mail communications with us, and add it to our account information.

2.Personal Information

The Site collects and uses Users personal information for the following purposes:
1. For billing purposes, and fulfilling your orders. If we encounter a problem when processing your order, your information may be used to contact you.
2. To improve customer service: User information helps us to effectively respond to customer service requests and support needs.
3. To personalize User experience: We may use information in the aggregate to understand how our Users as a group use the services and resources provided on our Site.
4. To improve our Site: We continually strive to improve our website offerings by creating content that is most relevant to our Users.
5. External use: We want to provide our Users with excellent service and to offer a great selection. We do not sell, rent, trade, license or otherwise disclose specific User information or financial information to anyone other than to affiliates under THE SOME control, except that:

A. As do most catalog and Internet retailers, we sometimes use others to perform specific functions on our behalf. When we disclose information to these service providers, we disclose information to help them to perform their service. For example, in order to deliver products to our Users, we must share some information. We partner with third parties (such as the Korean Postal Service) to ship products, to ensure delivery, and so that we can obtain feedback, improve the quality of our service, and measure and improve the quality of the service of the third party. In the example of shippers, we provide them some personally identifiable information such as User name, shipping address, email, and phone number.

B. Similarly, to help you buy products and provide customer service to you, we must provide your credit card number to financial-services corporations such as credit-card processors and issuers. When we submit your credit card number for authorization, we use state-of-the-art data encryption to protect your information. (More on this below in Data Security.)

C. We may disclose User information in response to requests from law enforcement officials conducting investigations; subpoenas; a court order; or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We also will release personal information where disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights, enforce our Terms of Use or other agreements, or to protect ourselves or others. For example, we may share information to reduce the risk of fraud or if someone uses or attempts to use the Site for illegal reasons or to commit fraud.

D. We may share non-personal information (such as the number of daily visitors to a particular web page, or the size of an order placed on a certain date) with third parties such as advertising partners. This information does not directly personally identify any user.

*Data Security
The Site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, including Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) for all financial transactions through the Site. We use SSL encryption to protect your personal information online, and we also take several steps to protect your personal information in our facilities. Access to your personal information is restricted. Only employees who need access to your personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to your personal information. While we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. 100% complete security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline.

3.Updates to this Privacy Policy

If we change or update this Privacy Policy, we will post changes and updates on the Site so that you will always be aware of what information we collect, use and disclose. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy from time to time so you will know if the Privacy Policy has been changed or updated.

4.Your Acceptance of these Terms

By using this Site, you signify your acceptance of this policy and terms of service. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting and changes to this policy will be deemed your acceptance of these changes.
