Protecting your privacy is important to Circus Ponies. We strive to keep your personal information confidential. By ensuring that you are aware of and understand the Circus Ponies Customer Privacy Policy, we can provide you with better service. Please take a moment to read the following policy to learn how we handle your personal information.

Why we collect personal information

Circus Ponies collects and uses your personal information to give you outstanding customer service, to provide you with convenient access to our products and services, and to make a wider range of offerings available to you. In addition, we use your personal information to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers, and other information we think you’d like to hear about. From time to time, we may also use your personal information to contact you to participate in a market research survey, so that we can gauge customer satisfaction and develop better products.

Because we value your privacy rights and your attention, we try to send out e-mail only when (a) you have requested that we do so (as for example, when you submit a technical support problem or subscribe to our press release mailing list), or (2) we believe that there is a compelling reason for you to hear from us (as for example, when an upgrade or interim release of a Circus Ponies product becomes available).

How we collect personal information

We collect information about you in several ways. For example, we might ask for your contact information when you correspond with us, call us to make a purchase or request service, or participate in an online survey. In addition, when you register a new Circus Ponies product, or ask to be included in an e-mail mailing list, we collect and store the information you provide in a secure database.

When we disclose personal information

Circus Ponies uses your personal information only in accordance with the Circus Ponies Customer Privacy Policy.

Circus Ponies works with other companies that help us provide Circus Ponies products and services to you, and we may provide your personal information to these companies. For example, we give shipping companies this information so they can deliver your products efficiently. The information they receive is for shipping and delivery purposes only, and we require that the companies safeguard your personal information in accordance with Circus Ponies’ policies.

At times we may be required by law or legal process to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we believe that disclosure is necessary for the public interest.

How we protect your personal information
