Who we are
Our website address is: https://teabrands.org. Tea Brands Guide is a trademark of AccelerMedia LLC.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
As a part of taking customer orders, we collect delivery and contact information to be able to process payment and to fulfill your orders and get them delivered to your address.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you contact us via a contact form, we will do our best to respond to you personally via email or phone, and and as part of this will retain your contact information. We won’t put you on our marketing email list unless you specifically request it.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
To serve our customers better, we track how well we’re doing with Google Analytics. For more information, see how Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps: www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/
Who we share your data with
We don’t sell or trade your data to any other companies. For processing payment, and delivering the products that you order to your door step, we use other companies and give them the data needed for expressly that purpose.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Order data is retained indefinitely for accounting and tax purposes.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
We use your contact information for contacting you, in case there is a problem fulfilling your order.
How we protect your data
We understand our customers value their personal data, so we store your data on our secure servers and access over secure connections such as SSL or TLS encrypted connections.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We have no known breaches, but if we do we’ll try to notify our customers via a statement on our website and/or an email.
What third parties we receive data from
We don’t buy user data from any other companies, but we sometimes advertise our products by placing ads on other sites.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
The advertising networks we work with may sometimes show different ads based on what they think you might be most interested in.
