Privacy Policy

Last Updated: July 8, 2019

At Fitz Frames, we care as much about your privacy as you do and we believe that you have a right to know what information we collect from you, as well as how we protect your privacy. We’ve created this Privacy Policy to let you know what to expect when you interact with us. This Privacy Policy applies to your, and all other users, use of our websites, website features, mobile applications (each, an “App”) and any in-person interactions (together, our websites, Apps and in-person interactions are referred to as the “Services”).

We only permit individuals who are at least 18 years old and can form legally binding contracts with us to use the Services. However, if you are under 18 years old and would like to use the Services, you may, but only if a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years old supervises you. In such cases, the adult would be the user and is responsible for any and all activity. If you create an account, make a purchase, provide information about, or otherwise use the Services on behalf of, or in conjunction with, a minor child, you represent and warrant that you are the child’s parent, or legal guardian and have the authority to act on his or her behalf and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to such minor child as well.

Your use of the Services is subject to our Terms of Use By using our Services, you agree to the collection, use, disclosure, and procedures this Privacy Policy describes. Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to third party websites (“Third Party Services”), such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat, Google+, Stripe and fraud prevention services, that we do not own or control, even if you access them through our Services. We try to work only with Third Party Services that share our respect for your privacy, but we cannot take responsibility for their practices, content, or privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third Party Services you access so that you know how they will collect, use, and share your information.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at privacy@fitzframes.com.

 

1. Children’s Information

We are especially sensitive about children’s information. We do not offer child directed Services. However, we expect that parents, or legal guardians of minor children would use the Services together for the purpose of purchasing eyeglasses for children. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a minor child, you may use our Services on behalf of, or in conjunction with, a minor child. By using the Services and providing a child’s personal information, a parent or legal guardian of a minor child is knowingly consenting to the collection of a child’s personal information by us. We do not knowingly target nor collect personal information from children under the age of 13, in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). If you have questions concerning our information practices with respect to children, or if you believe a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information, please email us at privacy@fitzframes.com.

2. Not Intended for EU Residents; Information Stored in the United States

The Services are not intended for European Union (EU) residents. Accordingly, you understand that your information may be stored in the United States. Information may be transferred outside of the country where you reside or are located, including to countries that may not or do not provide the same level of protection as the EU. By using and accessing our Services, users who reside or are located in countries outside of the United States agree and consent to the transfer and processing of personal information on servers located outside of the country where they reside, and acknowledge that the protection of such information may be different than required under the laws of their residence or location.

3. What Information does Fitz Frames Collect

Information you provide us:

·       When you create an account. When you create an account with us, you provide a name, email address and password.

·       When you make a purchase or use our Services. If you make a purchase, we request information from you to facilitate the transaction and get you the goods. You may also provide us with information when you use certain online features, such as measurement capture. This information may include (i) your name, email address, phone number, shipping address, billing address (ii) prescription information, including any images of prescriptions you may provide to us (iii) medical history and information about your vision, (iv) information about the products you try on and purchase, and (v) information about other people, such as when you direct us to send a gift card. If you provide us with an image of your prescription, we obtain any information that appears on the prescription form.

As part of the Services we will ask permission to access your camera for a facial scan in order to collect facial measurement data for your custom eyeglasses via what is called the TrueDepth API. We use the scan to derive facial measurements, so that we can manufacture custom eyeglass frames for you.

When you make a purchase, we ask you to provide payment information, which may include payment card information (such as credit card number, type, and expiration date), vision insurance plan information, billing address, and shipping address. Our payment processor, which is required by credit card issuers to meet specific security requirements, will collect, store, and process your credit card and other payment information on our behalf using industry-standard security measures. We do not store any payment card information. 

·       When you contact us. We do everything possible to make sure you have an exceptional shopping experience. If you contact us in person, by phone (call or text), email, instant message (including Facebook Messenger), live chat, through social media or our App, or by some other means, we may keep a record of your contact information and the content of the communication for later reference. When we send you emails, we may track whether you open them to learn how to deliver a better customer experience and improve our Services. We receive responses to any survey that you choose to complete for us.

Unfortunately, even though we use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information, we cannot guarantee complete security. Any information that you provide to us is done so entirely at your own risk.
