Privacy Policy

Tycoon Studios’ privacy policy covers the collection and use of personal information that may be collected by Tycoon Studios anytime you interact with Tycoon Studios, such as when you visit our website, when you purchase Tycoon Studios products and services, or when you contact us. Please take a moment to read the following to learn more about our information practices, including what type of information is gathered, how the information is used and for what purposes, to whom we disclose the information, and how we safeguard your personal information. Your privacy is a priority at Tycoon Studios, and we go to great lengths to protect it.

Why Tycoon Studios collects personal information
Why do we collect your personal information? Because it helps us deliver better customer service. It enables us to give you convenient access to our products and services and focus on categories of greatest interest to you. In addition, your personal information helps us keep you posted on the latest product announcements, special offers, and events that you might like to hear about.

What information Tycoon Studios collects
There are a number of situations in which your personal information may help us give you better service. At such times, we may collect personal information relevant to the situation, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and contact preferences. We collect information for market research purposes to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide more valuable service. We also collect information regarding customer activities on our website. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our websites and Internet services are of most interest to them.

If you use a bulletin board or chat room on a Tycoon Studios website you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. Tycoon Studios is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

When Tycoon Studios disclose your information
Tycoon Studios takes your privacy very seriously. Be assured that Tycoon Studios does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers. There are also times when it may be advantageous for Tycoon Studios to make certain personal information about you available to companies that Tycoon Studios has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for Tycoon Studios to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information in accordance with Tycoon Studios’ policies. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to purchase products, have products delivered to you, receive customer service, provide us feedback to improve our products and services, or access certain services, offers, and content on the Tycoon Studios website.

At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.

How Tycoon Studios protects your personal information
Tycoon Studios takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

The Tycoon Studios CafePress store uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. To make purchases from the Tycoon Studios’ CafePress store you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later, or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it’s transmitted over the Internet.

You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser like Safari.

Integrity of your personal information
Tycoon Studios has safeguards in place to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date for the purposes for which it is used. Naturally, you always have the right to access and correct the personal information you have provided.

Cookies and other technologies
As is standard practice on many corporate websites, Tycoon Studios’ website uses “cookies” and other technologies to help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how much time they spend there. We also use cookies and other technologies to make sure that our online advertising is bringing customers to our products and services. We use cookies and other technologies to study traffic patterns on our website, to make it even more rewarding as well as to study the effectiveness of our customer communications. And we use cookies to customize your experience and provide greater convenience each time you interact with us.

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Tycoon Studios will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.

In some of our email messages we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Tycoon Studios website. When a customer clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.

Tycoon Studios’ website has links to the sites of other companies. Tycoon Studios is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.

Your use of the Tycoon Studios Sites, including any dispute concerning privacy, is subject to this Privacy Policy and Tycoon Studios' Terms of Service. By using the Tycoon Studios Sites, you are accepting the practices set out in this Privacy Policy and those Terms of Service. Tycoon Studios may update its privacy policy from time to time. When we change the policy in a material way a notice will be posted on our website along with the updated privacy policy. Your continued use of any portion of the Tycoon Studios Sites following posting of the updated Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of the changes.
