Privacy & Security Policy


We appreciate your concerns regarding how your information is used and considers it a priority to protect ALL your Personal Information. Information provided will NEVER be sold or rented to any outside party. This notice describes our privacy & security policy. By using our web site you accept the practices described in this Privacy & Security Notice.

To help us achieve our goal of providing the highest quality products and services, we have implemented procedures to ensure that your personal information is handled in a safe, secure, and responsible manner. We take appropriate electronic and administrative steps to maintain the security and accuracy of personally identifiable information we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our systems.

As we continue to develop our Web site and take advantage of advances in technology to improve the services we offer, this privacy & security policy, likely will change. We therefore encourage you to refer to this policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current privacy & security policy.

We believe it is necessary to share information in cases of investigation, prevention, or taking action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to any person, violations of SWAP’S terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

We will transfer information about you in case SWAP is ever acquired by or merged with another company.

The Information We Collect
When you register to buy items on the site or when you sign up for a SWAP email newsletter we ask for information such as your name, address, email address, phone number, user name, credit card information and notification preferences. Once you register with SWAP and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to SWAP.

SWAP uses cookies to provide continuity from page to page. Within a single visit, these cookies store information such as your shopping list to simplify checkout. They do not contain any personally identifiable information. To access any secure areas such as your account information, you must still enter your password. The cookie itself does not tell us who you are, your email address or anything else personal. We use cookies to provide our visitors with a better experience on our site.

• We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information in order to do their jobs.
• We have electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with existing regulations to protect personal information about you.
• Your SWAP Account Information is password-protected.
• In certain areas SWAP uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions. Please note that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information.

How We Use the Information We Collect
We use the information we collect for various purposes, including:
• to complete your purchase transactions;
• to provide the services you request;
• to keep you informed about the status of your orders;

SWAP may send you promotional materials provided you consent. SWAP will only send you promotional emails which you consent or request to. By consenting to receive SWAP’s emails or updates you are not signing up to receive any third party communications (unless sent on behalf of SWAP). SWAP will not rent or sell your email address or other personal information.

SWAP may send or disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties:
• with your consent;
• when necessary to provide the product or service you have requested;
• when necessary to send the information to companies who work on behalf of SWAP to provide a product or service to you (unless we tell you differently, these companies do not have any right to use the personally identifiable information we provide to them beyond what is necessary to assist us);
• who analyze it on behalf of SWAP;
• when SWAP determines that your actions potentially violate our Security Policies, or any of our other usage guidelines or rules;

Subpoenas
SWAP may disclose any of your information (including personally identifiable information and browsing information, to the extent available) to law enforcement or in response to a subpoena.

SWAP will endeavour to contact you and allow you an opportunity to object to this disclosure, but sometimes this is not practicable or not allowed by law enforcement.

Online Account Registration
To make online shopping faster and easier, you may register with www.swapshop.gr As a registered customer, you only have to enter your shipping addresses and billing information once; they will be securely stored with us for your future use. Using your name and password, you may access your account online at any time to add, delete, or change information.

If you are using a public computer, we strongly encourage you to LOG OUT at the conclusion of your session. Your information will still be stored with us but it will not be accessible to anyone else from that computer.

Links

Newsletter

Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user or member has a choice whether or not to disclose or provide any information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, email) demographic information (such as age, zip code). Unless we inform you to the contrary in advance, we will only use this information for marketing purposes and to improve the quality of our products and services - we will not rent or lease this information to third parties (i.e., to allow them to market to you).
