Our agreements with these service providers prohibit them from using the information Sharp Type Co. provides to them for any purpose other than providing the Website and the products and services featured therein, and require them to keep that information confidential.

Your California Privacy Rights

A California privacy law that went into effect on January 1, 2005, the "Shine the Light" law, allows California residents to obtain a list of third parties to whom a business has disclosed personal information if it shares such information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. However, if a business adopts and discloses in its privacy policy a policy of not disclosing customers' personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and by providing a cost-free means to exercise that right.

As stated earlier in this Privacy Policy, personal information will not be shared with third parties for their direct marketing and promotional purposes.

Because this Site has a comprehensive privacy policy and provides you with details on how you may opt-in or opt-out of the use of your personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes, we are not required to provide you with the third party list.

International Transfer

The Website is designed for and targeted to U.S. audiences and is governed by and operated in accordance with the laws of the U.S. Sharp Type Co. makes no representation that the Website is operated in accordance with the laws or regulations of, or governed by, other nations. If you reside outside of the U.S., please be aware that by providing us with personal information, you understand and agree that: (1) your personal information may be transferred to and stored on servers located in the United States; (2) you consent to the transfer of such data to the United States for processing by our affiliates in accordance with this Privacy Policy; and (3) the Privacy Policy and the collection of information pursuant to the Privacy Policy shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law.

Security, Storage, Retention

Sharp Type Co. complies with industry standard practices to maintain the security of information. All financial transactions on the website are conducted via secured transmissions through shopify.com. However, as with most Internet sites or services, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully access such personal information despite our efforts.
