Information about Seafully

Privacy Policy

It is Seafully's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

SBSM Privacy Notice

SBSM knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.  This notice describes our privacy policy.  By visiting Seafully Service, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

What Personal Information About Customers Does Seafully Service Gather?  The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your experience using SBSM and Seafully Services.  Here are the types of information we gather.

Information You Give Us:  We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site 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, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.

Automatic Information:  We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us.  For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses Seafully Services or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of Seafully Services on other Web sites.

Mobile:  When you download or use apps created by SBSM or our subsidiaries, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device.  We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as advertising, search results, and other personalized content.  Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services.

E-mail Communications:  To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail or notification from Seafully Services 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.

Information from Other Sources:  We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.

What About Cookies?  Cookies are unique identifiers that we transfer to your device to enable our systems to recognize your device and to provide features that we may recommend to you based upon past purchases/product viewing, personalized advertisements on other Web sites, and storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.

The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.  Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer.  Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of Seafully Service’s features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Does Seafully Services Share the Information It Receives?  Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others.  We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries SBSM and Seafully Services (as they expand services available) that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control:  We work closely with affiliated businesses.  In some cases, these businesses operate stores via Seafully Services or sell offerings to you at Seafully Services website or application.  Based on product selection you will be able to see information about most third party Suppliers, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.

Third-Party Service Providers:  We employ or utilize other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf.  Examples may include sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service.  Third party suppliers are responsible for timely shipping of products.  They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Promotional Offers:  Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of Seafully Services customers on behalf of other businesses.  When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address.

Business Transfers:  As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units.  In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise).  Also, in the event SBSM or Seafully Services, or substantially all of their assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Protection of Seafully Services and Others:  We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Seafully Services, our users, or others.  This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.  Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

With Your Consent:  Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How Secure Is Information About Me?  We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using a third party secure payment method which encrypts information you input, and is governed by their privacy policy and terms of use.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer.  Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?  Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other Web sites.

Which Information Can I Access?  Seafully Services gives you access to a range of information about your account and your interactions with Seafully Services for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.

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 certain Seafully Services features.

You can add or update certain information on pages.

If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, a mechanism for adjusting such information shall be provided. (If you do not want to receive Conditions of Use and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Notice, those notices will still govern your use of Seafully Services, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.)

The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.  Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer.  Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of Seafully Services essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Are Children Allowed to Use Seafully Services?  Seafully Services does not sell products for purchase by children.  We sell children's products for purchase by adults.  If you are under 18, you may use Seafully Services only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.  We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without the consent of the child's parent or guardian.

Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions:  If you choose to use Seafully Services, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law of the state of Washington.  If you have any concern about privacy of Seafully Services, please contact us with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it.  Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice and the Conditions of Use will change also.  We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes.  Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account.  We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.

Examples of Information Collected

Information You Give Us:  You provide most such information when you search, buy, 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 Seafully Services or one of our third-party sellers; 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) or Your Profile; communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise; complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form; participate in Discussion Boards or other community features; provide and rate reviews; and employ Product Availability Alerts.  As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address, and phone numbers; credit card information; people to whom purchases have been shipped, including addresses and phone number; e-mail addresses of your friends and other people; content of reviews and e-mails to us; personal description and photograph in Your Profile or account; and financial information, including Social Security and driver's license numbers.

Automatic Information:  Examples of the information we may collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type, version, and time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system, and platform; purchase history, which we sometimes aggregate with similar information from other customers to create features; cookie number; products you viewed or searched for; and the phone number you used to call our telephone number.  We may also use browser data such as cookies, Flash cookies (also known as Flash Local Shared Objects), or similar data on certain parts of our Web site for fraud prevention and other purposes.  During some visits we may use software tools such as JavaScript to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page.  We may also collect technical information to help us identify your device for fraud prevention and diagnostic purposes.

Mobile:  Most mobile devices provide users with the ability to disable location services.  Most likely, these controls are located in the device's settings menu.  If you have questions about how to disable your device's location services, we recommend you contact your mobile service carrier or your device manufacturer.

Information from Other Sources:  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 may operate co-branded businesses or for which we may provide technical, fulfillment, advertising, or other services; search results and links, including paid listings (such as Sponsored Links); 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.
