This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for DeskStash.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:
What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
See what data we have about you, if any.
Change/correct any data we have about you.
Have us delete any data we have about you.
Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We request information from you on our order form. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
As you are no doubt aware, the Internet is not a completely secure communication system, and users must assume that this may pose a risk to the integrity of information they provide. Accordingly, we accept no legal responsibility for any loss or misuse of the data that may occur while the data is in transmission. For payment services however, we make use of e-commerce infrastructure providers who provide encrypted internet level security. The methods used are based on Certification Authority certificates (built into computer operating systems) and encrypted communication methods based on HTTPS and SSL/TLS techniques (built into browser applications). We of course have no responsibility for the security of users’ own IT and communication systems, and strongly recommend that all users follow good IT practices when using the web. We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure, and have chosen the following providers who have the necessary infrastructure to provide secure communications.
Please note that payment details including credit card numbers are supplied directly to our payment partners. We do not receive or store any financial details, other than the bare minimum needed to trace transactions for auditing purposes. For anti fraud reasons and to ensure your payments have not been misused, your personal data may be supplied by our payment partners to relevant third parties including credit reference and fraud prevention agencies, who may keep a record of that information.
The outcome of any payment transaction (successful or otherwise), is communicated back to the e-commerce engine, and in turn this information is related back to Desk Stash. We will then fulfill the order if the payment has succeeded or make contact in case there is a problem with the credit card (for example if the credit card expiry date has been reached).
To comply with online payment security regulations we do not accept payment by any other means other than those outlined here.
As part of the registration process for subscribing, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
Information regarding Mailchimp's commitment to data privacy can be found here.

In order to provide added value to our users, Desk Stash can affiliate itself to websites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated, Desk Stash has no control over these linked sites, which could have different private data collection methods unrelated to Desk Stash. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.

Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
