Underwear Nation, LLC (“we”), the owner and operator of UnderwearNation.com, its web site and associated computer functions (hereafter the “Site”), is committed to respecting and safeguarding your privacy online, as set forth in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy sets forth the policies and practices of the Site with respect to information and other data that is received or gathered regarding visitors to, and members, subscribers and other users of, the Site and services provided by or related to the Site. The information we collect through our Site helps us provide you with information specific to your needs and interests. Please read below to review our Privacy Policy and the types of information we gather through our Site. In this Privacy Policy, “we”, “us”, “our” and other similar references mean Underwear Nation (“UN”) and “you,” “your,” “member,” “modeling applicants” and other similar references mean a specific user of the Site. By visiting the Site, you accept the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

We Collect Your Information

As you visit our Site, Underwear Nation collects different information about you depending on your interaction:

(i) Members/Subscribers – Members/Subscribers are those users who subscribe to our services, and Members will be prompted to provide their name, address, email address, and any other necessary billing/shipping information (i.e. credit card information submitted via CCBill). The data is stored in a private database/billing database.

(ii) Modeling Applicants – Modeling Applicants are those users of the Site who interact with us through submitting an application to model on the Site. We collect personal information submitted to us by Model Applicants, such as, but not limited to: their name, address, age, and email address. Accordingly, the data we collect is stored in a private database.

(iii) Browsers – Browsers are visitors to the Site who never enter into any active data collection pages. Any information gathered from Browsers is also gathered from Members and Modeling Applicants. This information is restricted to cookies, IP Addresses and Referral URLs, and other passive information gathering devices (explained below).

Underwear Nation uses the following passive and active gathering devices to collect information about you:

(i) Cookies – We use cookies for your convenience. For example, we use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate and otherwise use our Site. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s Web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can be used to “remember” what information a user accesses on one Web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that Web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related Web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move between and interact with Web pages and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. The Site also uses cookies to store and sometimes track information to make your online experience easier and more personalized and for other purposes related to your use of the Site and related services. For example, because a cookie can be linked to information you have input or which has otherwise been collected, the need to repetitively enter certain information, such as your username or email address, can be eliminated. The use of cookies also assists us in acquiring important Site usage Data. Cookies can also assist us in tracking and targeting the interests, preferences and desires of our Site users to present the most appropriate messages, offers and other communications to our users, and to generally enhance their experience at our Site.

Currently, there are two general types of cookies commonly used in association with typical Web sites including our Site: “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies. A session or “session ID” cookie is functional only during the current “session” use of your browser, i.e., it ceases to function when you log off or close your browser. A “persistent” cookie remains on your hard drive beyond the current browser session. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “Help” file. We use both session cookies and persistent cookies.

We also use persistent cookies to track the actions of our users to enhance the experience on our site and to more effectively communicate Offers, promotional data and other useful information to you. At the present time, we intend to also adopt and use helpful future cookie technology, and similar types of technologies, as they become available. We may implement any and all such new technologies and similar improvements to Site functionality without notice.

(ii) Server Statistics – We collect general statistics to track user trends on our Site. These statistics include hits to our server, the types of browsers used to access our Site, page views, and navigational patterns. The information that is collected in this manner does NOT provide us with any personally identifiable information about our users. It helps us track “where” our users are coming from. This allows us to pinpoint high traffic areas and determine the most effective ways to communicate with our users. In order to prevent the introduction of viruses and hackers into the Underwear Nation site we may collect information, such as IP addresses, into a log file to be used to identify potential hackers of the Underwear Nation site.

(iii) Personal Information You Provide Us – For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” is any information that identifies you, would enable someone to contact you, or that describes your relationship with Underwear Nation. We collect and store Personal Information when you register to use our Site, ask a question, complete a form, conduct a transaction, or send us an email. While you are not required to submit any information to our Site, if you do not provide the requested information, you may not be able to access or use some of the features and functions of our Site and we may not be able to provide you with certain services.

We Use Your Information

The primary use for your information is to provide you with services you have requested and/or paid for. Underwear Nation also uses your information to deliver customized services to you. Non-personal and aggregate information, such as that collected passively, is used in order to customize our marketing efforts or to customize the use of the Site for an aggregate group of customers. We additionally will use the personal information of users whose membership has expired or has been cancelled in order to market our services to these individuals in the future. We also use your information for market research purposes – in order to increase your (and other users’) experience according to tracked interests, to analyze and target potential new markets, and for other marketing purposes.

Underwear Nation uses your Personal Information to complete transactions, respond to your requests, deliver the products and services you request, and notify you of promotions, updates, or special offers (which may be offered by Underwear Nation via email) that we think may interest you. If you are already receiving underwearnation.com emails and no longer wish to receive such communications, simply follow the “unsubscribe” instructions that appear in every underwearnation.com e-email, or contact us to modify subscriptions.

Underwear Nation may share information with its subsidiaries and other affiliated companies, and with other carefully selected vendors and business partners with whom we work (collectively, “Site Affiliates”). Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, 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. All companies that act on our behalf are contractually obligated to keep all information confidential and to use the customer information only to provide the services we ask them to perform for you and us. We may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third party vendors, but these statistics do not include Personal Information.

We may disclose Personal Information we collect from you if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that disclosure is necessary (a) to obey the law or comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates; (b) to protect and defend our rights or property or the rights or property of other users of our Site; or (c) to act in an emergency to protect the personal safety of users of our Site or the public.

We Protect Your Information

Underwear Nation takes measures, including data encryption, to protect the transmission of all sensitive end-user information. We make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems. Nevertheless, We cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party ‘hackers’ from illegally obtaining this information. We take all reasonable measures to prevent such breaches of security, but given the resourcefulness of cyber-criminals, we are unable to guarantee that our security is 100% breach-proof. You assume the risk of such breaches to the extent that they occur despite our reasonable security measures.
