Type of Information Collected
The Site collects certain information when you interact with the Site. For example, the Site may collect "Personal Information" which is data that can be used to identify an individual, as defined by applicable law. The Site may also collect data that does not identify you specifically. The following is a list of data that we may collect and process about you:
1. Information that you provide by filling out forms on the Site. This includes information you provide when you order from the Site; subscribe to any services offered on the Site including but not limited to interactive services (such as blogs, chat rooms, message boards, or other user forums); enter a competition or promotion sponsored by Surfwave; complete a survey; or report a problem with the Site.

If an order is placed with us, we need to hold personal information including your name, email address, phone numbers, home address, shipping and credit card billing address(es) so that we can process and fulfill your order. We do not view or save your credit card or debit card information.
Additionally we may also obtain information as a result of authentication or identity checks. Sometimes we may ask for your telephone number. This number may be given to our courier for delivery services. These details allow us to process your order and to let you know the status of your order.
Basically, we obtain some personal information from you for the purpose of your orders.
What do We Use Your Information for?
We use the information you provide to us for the specific purpose for which you provided the information, as described at the time of collection, and within the scope permitted by law. The information we collect from you can be used in the following ways:
1. Personalize your experience
(Your information helps us better respond to your personal needs.)
2. Improve our website and your shopping experience
(We will continue to work hard to improve our website products based on the information and feedback received.)
3. Improve customer service
(Your information can help us more effectively respond to your customer service requirements and support needs.)
4. Processing transactions, including execution of your payment and delivery of requested purchased products or services
5. Manage competitions, special promotions, surveys, events or other website features
6. Send recurring emails
(The email address you provide for order processing, in addition to occasionally receiving company news, updates, related product or service information, etc., can also be used to send you important information and updates related to the order.)
7. Send regular SMS messages
(The phone number you provide during customer registration and/or order processing may sometimes be used to send you important marketing and promotional information related to products and services that may be of interest to you.)
Basically, we use “cookies” to make your online experience as best as possible.
How Personal Information May be Used
Surfwave may use your personal information for the processing of orders, payments and to provide you with a personalized shopping experience. We will also use your details to fulfill and deliver your orders. Personal Information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information. Where there is a legal obligation to do so, we may disclose your information to any relevant regulatory body.
When you order from Surfwave, you will be offered the opportunity to opt out of our email newsletter and other update services. If you choose to opt-out for this service, we will not send you:
1. alerts for new products
2. features nor enhancements
3. special offers
4. upgrade opportunities
5. contests or events of interest
However, if you choose to receive our emails from time-to-time we will use the information you provide to promote the products and services via email. We do collate information about site traffic, sales, wish list, and other commercial information but do not share this information with any third parties. Finally, we may use your personal information for our internal marketing and demographic studies, together with non-personal data to monitor customer patterns so we can consistently improve our site design to better meet our visitors' needs.
In addition to disclosures identified in the purposes above, from time to time we may disclose Personal Information to:
Our service providers and subcontractors, including our affiliates, retained to perform functions on our behalf or to provide services to us, such as warehousing and delivery; marketing and advertising; data processing; software development; website hosting and management; information technology and office services; legal, accounting, audit and other professional service providers; and further provided such service provider does not collect, use or disclose the personal information for any purpose other than to perform such functions or to provide services to us or as otherwise required by law.
Basically, we use your personal information only for what is necessary and never share with those who shouldn’t see it.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
- How do you get my consent?
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
You are solely responsible for any User Content that you submit. You are legally liable for the User Content that you submit including, for example, material protected by copyright, trademark, patent or trade secret law or other proprietary rights laws without permission of the author or owner or subject featured in such submission, or defamatory comments.
