2.1 TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU. We will use the email address you provide when purchasing a product or when submitting a customer or technical support message to contact you to confirm your orders and provide customer support. We will also use this email address to send you emails containing product offers and other marketing materials; you can unsubscribe from our mailing list at any time using the “UNSUBSCRIBE” link we include in marketing messages.
2.3 TO DELIVER CUSTOMIZED CONTENT. We use data collected through cookies to customize your experience with the Site. For example, if you place an item in your shopping cart on the Site but do not complete your purchase, we “remember” you, such that the next time you visit the Site that product is still in your cart.
2.4 TO IMPROVE THE SITE. We will use data collected about your interactions with the Site to look for trends in the popularity of features so that we can improve those features, to detect security incidents and bugs, and to stop fraudulent or illegal activity.
2.5 TO EXERCISE OUR LEGAL RIGHTS. Where legally required or permitted, we will use data collected from you to respond to court orders or otherwise participate in the legal process.
Additionally, Iris may use de-identified or aggregated data collected about you in ways permitted by law but not described above. In general, de-identified information is information that does not directly or indirectly identify you. Aggregate information is information about a group of users, from which individual identities have been removed.
- 3. DOES IRIS SHARE USERS’ DATA WITH OTHERS? We share data collected from you through the Site with the following third-parties:
3.1 PAYMENT PROCESSORS. We use payment processors to handle any fees you submit to us (such as the fee you must pay in order to purchase a product). When you click to submit payment, the Site will link you to such a processor, and our Site will alert the processor that you want to submit payment to Iris. All payment information, such as credit or debit card details, will be submitted directly to the processor and will not be accessible to us.
3.2 SHIPPING COMPANIES. When you order physical products, we share your name and address with third party shipping companies, such as the United States Postal Service and FedEx, so that these companies can deliver products to you.
3.3 WEB HOST. We use a third party web host to host data and operate the Site. In performing its services, the host may have access to your Personally Identifiable Data. We do not authorize the host to use such data except as necessary to perform web hosting service and fulfill its other business purposes. We do not authorize the host to further collect, sell or use your Personally Identifiable Information.
3.4 EMAIL MANAGERS. In order to send you marketing messages, we will share your name and email address with our third party email distributor.
3.6 DATA ANALYZERS. We share data with data aggregation and analytics software providers to enable us to monitor and improve the Site. For example, these providers help us track mouse movements on the Site (so we can understand which products on the Site are most interesting to users) and understand how many visitors to the Site ultimately purchase a product (so we can continue that make purchasing easier).
3.7 MERGERS & SALES. If we undergo a merger or sale, we will share collected data if and as permitted by law.
Except as described above, Iris does not rent, sell, or share Personally Identifiable Information about you with other people or companies.

However, even after such Personally Identifiable Information is deleted, we may retain and use data that does not constitute Personally Identifiable Information (including de-identified or aggregated information) for our business purposes, such as creating internal reports that assist our development of new products and providing “traffic statistics” and “response rates” to third parties.
