This Privacy Notice has been prepared by Onlinewares LLC ("OWLLC") for U.S. visitors and it sets out the manner in which OWLLC collects, uses, discloses and otherwise manages personal information. This Privacy Notice applies to the privacy practices on our websites located at www.onlinewares.com (the "Website").
Collection and Use of Personal Information
The term “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual, including but not limited to full name, address, email address, and other information relating to an individual.
We may collect personal information when you:
Email and Other Communications: From time to time, we may obtain your consent to send you email and other communications about products, services, promotions or events relating to OWLLC that may be of interest to you.
Our policy is to not disclose your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless we first obtain your opt-in consent.
You can opt-out of receiving promotional messages from us by doing one of the following:
Contact Us: When you contact us with a comment, question or complaint, you may be asked to provide personal information (such as your name, address, email address and a phone number) along with additional information we need to help us promptly answer your question or respond to your comment or complaint. We may also retain this information to assist you in the future and to improve our customer service, product and service offerings, and events and promotions.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Our policy is that we will not disclose, trade, rent, sell or otherwise transfer your personal information, without your consent, except as otherwise set out herein. We may maintain or process your personal information in the US or other jurisdictions.
Service Provider Arrangements: We may transfer (or otherwise make available) your personal information to third parties who provide services on our behalf.
Your personal information may be maintained and processed by our service providers in the US or other jurisdictions. Our service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other purposes.
Ratings/Reviews: If you provide a product rating and/or review and choose to permit OWLLC to use your feedback to help others make smart decisions, OWLLC may use personal information you have provided such as your first name and last initial, city and province/state, gender, product rating or review, your public IP address at the time of submitting the Review, and other information you provide about your experience with the product (the “Review”) for the purposes of displaying the Review to the public. OWLLC may also provide this information to the third-party providers who partnered with us in delivering services to you. The public IP address is disclosed to the brand partner or their service provider for review fraud detection and mitigation purposes.
Sale of Business: We may transfer any information we have about you as an asset in connection with a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of OWLLC or as part of a corporate reorganization or stock sale or other change in corporate control.
Legal: OWLLC may provide your personal information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to an investigative body in the case of a breach of an agreement or contravention of law, or as otherwise required by applicable US or other law. We may also disclose personal information where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or as otherwise permitted by law.

Security of Personal Information
We have implemented measures designed to help protect personal information in our custody and control.
