There are two main types of information we collect: information that personally identifies you and information that is about you but does not individually identify you such as, which web browser is used to access our website, how many people have accessed the website and which pages they are accessing.

With regard to information that personally identifies you, we may collect information such as names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, user names, passwords, payment information (e.g. credit card number and billing address) and information about your company. We collect this information when you provide it to us such as:

You may also provide information to be published or displayed (“posted”) on public areas of the website (for example, product reviews) or on our social media sites. Your contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk as we cannot control the actions of other users of the website or our social media sites.

How We Use Your Information
We do not disclose your personal information to third parties unless they are in direct business with us and need your information to fulfill an order. We use the information that we collect about you, or that you provide to us, in the following ways:
- To fulfill any purpose for which you provided the information (e.g. to processing, billing, fulfilling and shipping orders).
- To provide you with information, products, or services that you request from us.
- To provide you with notices about your account.
- To carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing and collection.

Emails regarding inquiries are deleted immediately once they have been addressed while emails regarding complaints or problems may be kept for up to three (3) years.
Disclosure of Your Information
When necessary we may share customer information with our affiliated companies in order for them to complete a transaction and/or mail you the product you ordered. We often contract with third parties to provide specific services to carry out our business obligations. These services may include activities such as credit card processing, or shipping. In those instances, we will provide only the information that is necessary for the third party to provide the requested services.
Your information may also be disclosed to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of the Kloster Company assets whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or other proceeding in which personal information held by Kloster Company about our website users is among the assets transferred.
