What Information We Collect

The requested Personal Information may include your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, payment information, and details of a request. Additionally, you may decide to provide non-requested information, including Personal Information, through the Site for various reasons, such as to provide suggestions for new products or to obtain assistance from Bernie, the chatbot.
In each instance, collecting this information is necessary for us to fulfill your request. You can always refuse to provide any information, including Personal Information, but please understand that without this requested information, you may be unable to access certain parts of the Site and Safari may be unable to fulfill your request.

You should always take special care in deciding what information you send or otherwise make available on the internet, including through this Site.

We do not sell, trade, rent, share, disclose, or otherwise transfer your Personal Information to any third party, except for sharing your Personal Information with suppliers, website hosting partners, payment processors, and other trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Site and conducting our business, or as otherwise required by law. We may use third party service providers to help us operate the Site, process payments, store and access Personal Information, perform analytics, and administer activities on our behalf, such as sending out newsletters or surveys. These third party service providers are contractually bound to only process the limited Personal Information we provide them to perform specific tasks at our direction, as necessary to provide the Site and fulfill your requests.

How We Handle Children’s Information
While the Site is intended to be accessed and used only by adults 18 years of age or older, we understand that the nature of our business and the content of our Site may lead to children accessing the Site. We are committed to protecting the privacy and safety of all of our Users, especially children, while accessing or using our Site. Accordingly, we take extra steps, including, but not limited to, compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), to make sure children have a safe experience with the Site and their Personal Information is respected and protected at all times. We also strongly encourage every parent or guardian to take an active role in monitoring their child’s use of the internet and adopting appropriate safeguards, such as device and browser controls and preferences. We consider a child as any person under the age of 18 years old.
We do not intentionally or knowingly collect Personal Information of children without the consent of a parent or legal guardian. If we discover that we have unintentionally or unknowingly collected information from a child in a way that is not in compliance with COPPA, we will delete the information immediately.
In order to prevent unintentional collection of a child’s information without parental/guardian consent, we use age gates to prevent children from accessing sections or features of the Site which request Personal Information. These age gates may be in the form of a pop-up or a checkbox on an online form. For instance, the shopping cart and checkout features of the Site may only be accessed and used by persons 18 years of age or older. For each browsing session, navigating to the shopping cart or checkout features on the Site requires affirmative confirmation that the User is over the age of 18. If a child, in spite of these safeguards, orders a product through the Site, then the parent or guardian may return the product for a refund according to our refund policy as posted at the time of purchase and we will delete any information of the child immediately. If you believe your child has placed an order on the Site, please alert us as soon possible by e-mail to email@example.com .
Although the Site is not intended for use by children, children may wish to interact with Safari by filling out the Contact Us form, signing up for our mailing list, posting to social media with #LoveSafari and sharing on the Site, or signing up to become a Safariologist. Each of these features includes an age gate prior to submittal that requests a parent’s or guardian’s e-mail address if the User is a child. We will only use this e-mail address to contact the parent or guardian to explain what feature the child is attempting to access, what information will be collected, how that information will be used, how that information may be shared, and how long we will store that information, and provide the option for the parent or guardian to give or deny consent. In each case, we will not collect the child’s information unless and until we first receive the verifiable consent of the parent or guardian.
In order to obtain verifiable parental or guardian consent, we may: (1) request that the parent or guardian sign a consent form and send it back to us; (2) verify through a payment method; or (3) request that the parent or guardian provide a form of government issued identification. All information collected for the purpose of obtaining verifiable consent will be promptly deleted upon completion of the verification process.
In the event that a child contacts Safari through e-mail or otherwise, we may collect limited contact information from the child without obtaining parental or guardian consent in order to respond directly to the child on a one-time basis. This limited information will be promptly deleted upon responding to the child’s request.
There may be cases in which Safari is legally obligated to process a child’s Personal Information, even without a parent or guardian’s consent, including to: (1) protect the security or integrity of the Site; (2) take precautions against liability; (3) respond to a judicial process or subpoena; or (4) to the extent permitted under other provisions of law, to provide information to law enforcement agencies or for an investigation on a matter related to public safety.
After verifying your identity as parent or legal guardian, you may at any time request, by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org , to view the Personal Information we have collected on your child, update or correct the Personal Information, request that the Personal Information be deleted, withdraw your previously granted consent, or refuse to allow further collection or use of the Personal Information.
