PII Collected on www.ThinkerClothing.com

Following are the categories of information T4T gathers:

Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. It is your choice to not provide certain information, but that may limit your access to T4T’s features and offers. We use the information that you provide to respond to your requests, customize future shopping for you, improve your experience shopping with T4T, and communicating with you.

E-mail Communications: T4T wants to personalize your shopping experience with us. From time to time, based on your opt-in/opt-out preferences, we will send you announcements and promotions pertaining to T4T offerings. Any newsletter or promotional e-mail messages that T4T sends to our customers, apart from the messages that you, as our customer, have agreed to receive as a condition of using our service, includes an unsubscribe link.

Tracking Technology Used on T4T Websites: We receive and store certain types of automatic information whenever you interact with us. T4T servers use cookies, and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses www.ThinkerClothing.com. (From www.SearchSoftware.com: "A cookie is information that a Web site puts on your hard disk so that it can remember something about you at a later time. [More technically, it is information for future use that is stored by the server on the client side of a client/server communication.] Typically, a cookie records your preferences when using a particular site. Using the Web's Hypertext Transfer Protocol [HTTP], each request for a Web page is independent of all other requests. For this reason, the Web page server has no memory of what pages it has sent to a user previously or anything about your previous visits. A cookie is a mechanism that allows the server to store its own information about a user on the user's own computer. You can view the cookies that have been stored on your hard disk [although the content stored in each cookie may not make much sense to you]. The location of the cookies depends on the browser. Internet Explorer stores each cookie as a separate file under a Windows subdirectory. Netscape stores all cookies in a single cookies.txt fle. Opera stores them in a single cookies.dat file. Cookies are commonly used to rotate the banner ads that a site sends so that it doesn't keep sending the same ad as it sends you a succession of requested pages. They can also be used to customize pages for you based on your browser type or other information you may have provided the Web site. Web users must agree to let cookies be saved for them, but, in general, it helps Web sites to serve users better.") You can disable or delete similar data used by Web browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting its manufacturer website. However, cookies also allow you to take advantage of some www.ThinkerClothing.com features, T4T suggests that you leave them turned on because, for example, if you choose to block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to add items to your Shopping Cart, move forward with your purchase to Checkout, or use any T4T products and services that require you to log on.



T4T Customer Information Exposure to Third Parties

Third Party Links T4T Does Not Control: T4T includes on our www.ThinkerClothing.com website links to other established, recognized and quality Internet sites offering interesting and educational information of interest to our target customers – those passionate about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (“STEM”). T4T is not in any way affiliated with those entities or institutions, receives no remuneration of any kind for providing those links, and is not responsible for their content or interaction with T4T customers. T4T may choose, at any time, to add, remove or change the selection of third party links we include on our websites provided to our customers. By choosing to access links to those third parties and their affiliates, unrelated to T4T, our customers agree, and understand, that their PII may be accessed by those websites and our customers do not hold T4T accountable or responsible for their experiences on those third party sites.

Third Party Service Providers: T4T contracts with, and will contract with, third party service providers to perform functions on our behalf which are directly related to the primary business of T4T. Examples may include delivering packages, fulfilling orders, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to our customers’ PII needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. T4T does not sell or rent its customer information to third parties.

Business Transfers and Expansion: As T4T continues to develop our business, we might pursue an IPO, be acquired or engage in a merger. In these cases, our customers’ PII would likely be an asset of the business which is transferred in that transaction, but remains subject to the terms and conditions of any pre-existing Privacy Notice unless a customer does not provide their consent.

Business Bankruptcy: In the case where T4T may be required to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, our customers' PII would be included as an asset of the business and, as such, would be made available for review by officers of the bankruptcy court, financial forensics professionals they assign, and legal counsel representing the parties to the matter.



Security Measures in Place to Keep PII Gathered Secure

T4T’s panels are secure; our servers are CISP-compliant.



PII Posted by T4T Customers on Our Website

T4T, on our website www.ThinkerClothing.com, may, from time to time, invite customers to post photographs of themselves wearing Thinker Clothing™ products. This opportunity is a completely voluntary service. When our customers e-mail T4T including their photograph(s) wearing Thinker Clothing™ products, they are giving their approval for their photographs to be publicly presented on our website. T4T will disclose a customer’s first name only, and their occupation, only if this information is approved by that customer to be so disclosed by T4T. The customer providing their photograph to T4T for presentation on our website may, at any time and at their discretion, request that their photograph be removed from it. When T4T receives this request by e-mail from our customer, we will remove their photograph within 24 hours of receipt of that request.

T4T offers clothing in men’s, women’s and infant sizes. Therefore, a customer may also choose to submit a photograph of their child wearing Thinker Clothing™ products. In this case, T4T will only consider posting that child’s photograph with prior written approval from that child’s parent and verification of that child’s age. T4T will not disclose on our website that child’s name, location or any PII of any kind about that child.



PII of Customers Submitting Images for Use in T4T Designs

T4T, on our website www.ThinkerClothing.com, may, from time to time, invite individual and enterprise customers to submit images and doodles for consideration to be incorporated into T4T designs, those designs to be named for those customers. By submitting images to T4T by e-mail, our customers give their approval for the possibility of their image to be approved, incorporated into, and shown in a T4T textile or Thinker Clothing™ product on our website with their individual and/or enterprise credit given for that submission.



Protecting T4T and Our Customers Against Fraud

Protecting T4T, www.ThinkerClothing.com, our Other Domains and Other Parties: T4T, in compliance with law, government agency warrants, subpoenas and other government orders, releases PII to those agencies and officials when appropriate. We also release PII to enforce or T4T’s Conditions of Use and other agreements and to protect the safety, rights and property of T4T, our customers or others. In compliance with fraud protection requirements of our merchant banking and credit institutions, T4T exchanges information with other companies and organizations to ensure fraud protection and to reduce credit risk.

How T4T Secures Customer Credit Card Transactions: We receive product orders directly via our website through Yahoo Small Business. We must enter the order processing area of our site using a privacy code. T4T is also a PayPal small business merchant and we process all transactions through PayPal. When orders come in PayPal confirms for us whether or not a customer is a verified PayPal member and confirms for us a member's shipping address. If confirmation isn't complete an order may be automatically marked by them "pending review". We may investigate and update the order to "OK", "fraudulent", "cancelled", "returned" or "on hold". PayPal provides authorization for a US$ limit on the transaction. This is a limited time authorization which lasts only 30 days and is automatically void if we do not complete processing the order.

T4T reveals only the last four digits of customer credit card numbers when confirming an order, though the entire credit card number is transmitted to the appropriate credit card company during the processing of your order. T4T encourages you, as our customer, to also protect yourself against fraud via unauthorized access to your password, your computer and its IP address.



Information T4T Customers Can Access on Our Website

T4T, on our website www.ThinkerClothing.com, gives you as our customer access to a broad range of PII about the account you have created with us and your interactions with T4T to view and, as needed, update that information.
