Privacy policy

At CSHEL (“CSHEL,” “our,” “us” or “we”), we know how important your privacy is to you! This Privacy Policy is here to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive from users of www.industrystandardny.com (this “Site”), whether you access it from a computer, tablet, mobile phone or any other mobile device. This Privacy Policy applies only to information that you provide to us through this Site. This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time. We will notify you of any material changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this Site. You are advised to consult this policy regularly for any changes. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE THIS SITE. As used in this policy, the terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to, collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our company or among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.

Information Collection and Use

Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, services, features and content, to administer your use of this Site and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate this Site (collectively, the “Service”).

Personally Identifiable Information

When you join our mailing list, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address, and postal address. If you choose to make a purchase via this Site, our third party payment processor service providers may also collect billing information such as your credit card number or billing address. We use the Personal Information you provide mainly to provide the Service, process your transactions and administer your inquiries.


In order to access additional functionality of this Site, you may be required to create an account for your use of the Service (“Account”). You may create an Account directly via this Site. When you create an Account, you will become a “Member” of the Service. We also collect the other information that you provide as part of account registration and your use of the Service (e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual preferences) (“Non-Identifying Information”). We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, complete your transactions, and administer your inquiries.


Cookies and Pixel Tags

Like many websites, we use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies for two purposes. First, we use persistent cookies to save your login information for future logins to this Site. Second, we use session ID cookies to enable certain features of this Site, to better understand how you interact with this Site and to monitor aggregate usage by Industry Standard Users and web traffic routing on this Site. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from this Site and Service and then close your browser. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of this Site or all functionality of the Service.


We may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (individually or collectively “Pixel Tags”) in connection with our Service to collect usage, demographic and geographical location data. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel that is ordinarily not visible to users and may be associated with cookies on a user’s hard drive. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of this Site, to deliver branded services and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns.


Phishing

Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Industry Standard. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your login information, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.


Information Sharing and Disclosure

Industry Standard Third Party Social Media. Industry Standard maintains publicly accessible social media material, including Instagram, Facebook and other third party sites and applications (“Third Party Social Media”). Please note that any information you provide on Third Party Social Media, including, but not limited to, media and/or comments, may be read, collected and used by others who access the Third Party Social Media. Also, if you choose to comment on any Third Party Social Media post, the content of such comment will be publicly viewable via the Third Party Social Media and any other information you choose to publicly provide (including your name, email address and/or website URL) may also be publicly viewable via the Third Party Social Media.


Changing or Deleting Your Information

All Members may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their registration profile by contacting us or by making edits via the “My Account” section of this Site. If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated. If you would like us to delete your account in our system, please contact us at with “Privacy” as the subject line of the email with a request that we delete your Personal Information from our database. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.


Security/Limitation of Liability

Industry Standard is very concerned with safeguarding your information, but no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). In some cases, we also encrypt sensitive information where it is stored on our systems.


We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.


International Transfer

Your information may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, Industry Standard transfers Personal Information to the United States and processes it there. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.


Links to Other Sites

Our Site contains links to other websites. If you choose to visit an advertiser by “clicking on” a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices.

Other websites may follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
