The term “cookie” defines a packet of data that a computer receives and sends back without performing any alterations to that same data. One of the most common ways your computer receives cookies is through a preferred web browser (Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) when visiting web sites. Depending on the context of your visit, this data can include personal information such as your name, IP address, residential address, email address, credit/debit card information, etc.
A primary purpose of cookies is to aid web sites by keeping track of every time you visit and what you do on the site. One great example of cookies in action is online shopping; when you add an item to your shopping cart, cookies are used to remember what’s in the cart. Without cookies, your shopping cart would remain empty no matter how many times you try adding something to it. Cookies can also save your login information, so when you revisit a web site that you’ve previously created an account for, you won’t have to login again.
WHAT DOES Tell Me Your Tale DO WITH MY PERSONAL DATA?
We collect information anytime you visit a product page on our store, create an account, place an order, sign up for our newsletter, or submit a contact form. All these methods implement the use of browser cookies, interactive web forms and network data (geographic IP address).
Your personal data is used strictly in-house for transacting payments, processing orders, shipping products, customer service and marketing content. It is not shared with any third parties unless absolutely necessary for business purposes. At the moment, we only share data with 2 third party companies: BigCommerce (E-Commerce Provider) and Klarna (Financing). We do not sell your personal data.
Big Commerce collects information about a shopper in order to perform business functions on behalf of Tell Me Your Tale. This includes transacting payments, shipping orders, saving login info should an account be created and saving personal information to autofill in the event of a consumer returning to finalize a transaction.
If you decide to opt-in with Klarna to purchase a product, you’re required to pass a credit check which requires your full name, home address, phone number, date of birth and the last four digits of your social security number.
