Personally Identifiable Information
The Information We Collect
Information You Provide To Us
In general, you can browse the Whiteflash website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. The Personally Identifiable Information we receive is provided directly by you so that Whiteflash can provide the products and services that you have requested information about, or have ordered or purchased. Typically, this information includes your name, home, billing or other physical address, e-mail address and telephone number, as well as any information associated with the foregoing. In addition, we may also collect other types of information, such as information about your purchases, gender, credit card, etc., which we may associate with Personally Identifiable Information. For example, if you purchase products or services from us, we’ll note your credit card information, the type of services or products ordered or purchased, and the date of the order or purchase. You may also provide us with photos, drawings or designs that may contain personal information. We may also collect personal information when you register with, log onto or visit the Whiteflash website or our Facebook page (such as sweepstakes, contests, games, and informational and promotional offers), and when you provide information to our customer service representatives.
Information Collected By Technology
Whiteflash also collects information through technology to improve your shopping experience with us, to make our website more interesting and useful to you, and for various purposes associated with our business. For instance, when you visit our site we collect your IP address (an IP address identifies the access point through which you enter the Internet, and is usually controlled by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your company or your college). By itself, your IP does not identify you personally. Whiteflash may use IP addresses to collect information about how often people visit various parts of our website, and we may combine IP addresses with Personally Identifiable Information if you open an account with us.
The Whiteflash website collects information through a variety of technical methods, including cookies and Web beacons.

Cookies, Web beacons and other technical methods involve the transmission of information directly to Whiteflash. Whiteflash may use the information collected through these technical methods for many purposes, including enhancing your experience on our Web site. For example, when you return to our Web site after logging in, cookies allow the site to remember who you are. Whiteflash also may use technical methods to analyze traffic patterns on our site, such as how often users visit various parts of the site, the Web site features that are most helpful to our customers, etc.
