What information do we collect?
Information You Provide to Us
Karitas Productions requires each customer to provide us with personal information (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information”) to access and use Karitas Productions products and services. Personally Identifiable Information is captured when a visitor accesses Online Services, or speaks on the phone with or emails an Karitas Productions employee, and willingly discloses that information. This disclosure may occur when a visitor registers with an Online Service, engages in transactions, contacts customer service, or participates in contests, promotions, surveys, forums, content submissions, requests for suggestions, or other aspects of services offered by Karitas Productions.
Personally Identifiable Information includes: (i) “Contact Data” (such as your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email address); (ii) “Financial Data” (such as your credit card number, expiration date, and verification code or bank account information); (iii) “Demographic Data” (such as your zip code and sex).
In the regular course of our business, Karitas Productions may monitor and record phone conversations or email communications between you and Karitas Productions employees for training and quality assurance purposes. We may receive a confirmation when you open or click on content in an email from us, which helps us make our communications to you more useful and interesting.
Surveys and Contests.
We may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys on our site, to measure customer satisfaction. If you participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys, or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes name, email address, and mailing address.
Testimonials and Reviews.
We may display personal testimonials of satisfied customers. We will ask for your specific consent as part of the survey. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We may also display customer reviews. If you provide a review that we display and wish to update or delete it, you can also contact us at email@example.com
Information We Collect Automatically.
Traffic Data. Karitas Productions or its third-party service providers may collect a variety of visitor data such as IP addresses, browser settings, internet service provider (ISP) information, referring/exit pages, operating systems, date/time stamps, and clickstream data (collectively “Visitor Data”). The Karitas Productions internal servers and software automatically recognize Visitor Data. The Site may use Visitor Data to compile traffic data about the types of visitors who use the Site at specific intervals (collectively “Traffic Data”).
We may use Traffic Data to analyze Site traffic. We may also use Traffic Data to diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, or display content according to your preferences. Visitor Data and Traffic Data may also be shared with business partners, affiliates, or advertisers on an aggregated and anonymous basis.
Karitas Productions may use the standard cookie feature of major browser applications and third-party providers, including Google Analytics features (Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager Integration and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting), or employ internally developed cookies, clear GIFs, pixel tags, tracking codes, and other technologies that allow Karitas Productions to store a small piece of data on a visitor’s computer, or any other device a visitor uses to access Online Services, about his or her visit to the Site or use of Applications. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” directory. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site will be limited.
Location Information. When you use the Online Services, we may collect general location information (such as general location inferred from an IP address).
How do we use the information we collect?
We use information we collect from the Online Services to: provide you with the Online Services; communicate with you; process your orders; manage and remember your preferences and customize the Online Services; analyze and improve the Online Services or any other products and Online Services we provide; improve our advertising and marketing; verify your identity; facilitate your transactions with our third-party marketing partners; inform you of offers and discounts; comply with our legal obligations or as permitted by law; protect the safety and/or integrity of our users, employees, third parties, members of the public, and/or the Online Services; and prevent fraud and enforce our legal terms.
We may combine information that we collect from you through the Online Service with information that we obtain from other sources. We may also aggregate and/or de-identify information collected through the Online Services. We may use de-identified or aggregated data for any purpose, including without limitation for research and marketing purposes.
How do we share the information we receive?
Except as disclosed here, we do not rent, sell, or share your personal information with third parties. We share customer information with third parties as follows:
Karitas Productions, sometimes with the assistance of a third party or Karitas Productions subsidiary, may use your Personally Identifiable Information to process your payment through merchant account services, and to generate the products and services you order. Your Contact Data may be used to follow up with you on transactions you initiate through Online Services, respond to inquiries made through Online Services, inform you of changes to Online Services, and send you additional information about Karitas Productions and its products and services.
Third Party Marketing.
Unless specifically authorized by you, we do not provide Personally Identifiable Information to third parties for marketing purposes. If you express interest in a third party offer or purchase a package that includes a third party offer, we may provide your Personally Identifiable Information to that third party solely in connection with the offer you have selected.
Required by Law.
We may also disclose your personal information: as required by law, such as in response to a legal process, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a legal request.
Contact Data and Traffic Data are used to gather general statistics about our customers and visitors. We may use Demographic Data to generate collective information about our users, but not in a way that identifies any user specifically. For example, we may inform third parties about the number of registered users and unique visitors, and the pages most frequently browsed.
We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with companies that provide support services to us (such as a printer or email service provider), or help us market our products and services. These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions.
Blogs and Forums.
The Site may include a publicly accessible blog and interactive forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. You should use caution when deciding whether to disclose your personal information in these areas of the site. To request removal of your personal information from our community forums, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
Other Transfers. We may share Personally Identifiable Information and other data with businesses controlling, controlled by, or under common control with Karitas Productions. If Karitas Productions is merged, acquired, or sold, or if some or all of our assets or equity are transferred, we may disclose or transfer Personally Identifiable Information and other data in connection with the associated transactions.
Consent. In addition to the sharing described in this Policy, we may share information about you whenever you consent to or direct such sharing.
Analytics & Advertising
Analytics. We may use third-party web analytics services on the Online Services, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers use the sort of technology described in the “Information We Collect Automatically” section above to help us analyze how users use the Online Services, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive. The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Service. We also use Google Analytics for certain purposes related to advertising, as described in the following section. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.
If you would like to learn more or opt out of receiving online display advertising tailored to your interests, please visit the Networking Advertising Initiative at www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp or the Digital Advertising Alliance at http://aboutads.info/choices. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads. If you delete your cookies, use a different browser, or buy a new computer, you will need to renew your online display advertising opt-out choice. To opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising or customize Google Display Network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page.
Do Not Track. We do not recognize or respond to browser initiated Do Not Track signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working on Do Not Track standards, implementations, and solutions.
Data we process on behalf of our customers
We receive information from and on behalf of our customers when they use our Online Services. Because of the nature of the services, this information may contain any type of personal identifiable information, including Contact Data, Financial Data, Demographic Data, and Legal Data (such as social security numbers, company information, trade secrets, inventions, and idea submissions and other sensitive information necessary to generate legal documents). We process such data only in accordance with our customers’ instructions. For such data, the customer is the data controller (for purposes of GDPR) or the “business” (for purposes of the CCPA) and is responsible for most aspects of the processing of the personal information. If you have any questions or concerns about how your personal information is processed in these cases, including how to exercise your rights as a data subject, please contact the customer. If we receive any rights requests concerning instances where we act as data processor, we will forward your query on to the relevant customer.
You may choose not to provide Karitas Productions with Personally Identifiable Information or you may turn off cookies in your browser by changing its settings. If you make these decisions, you may continue to use the Online Services and browse its pages. However, Karitas Productions cannot process orders without Personally Identifiable Information.
User and Authorized Contact Access to Order Information. Karitas Productions will give you, or anyone listed as an authorized contact for your account, information about your order. This may include information about the nature and status of your order, information you provided to process your order, payment information, and contact information. If you want someone to have access to your order, you must list them as an authorized contact or they may not obtain information.
Deleting Your Information. If you no longer desire our services, or if you want to remove your Personally Identifiable Information from our Site, you may terminate your account by contacting email@example.com
Opting Out of Marketing. We send promotional emails and newsletters from time to time to users who have registered on the site and to those who have opted in to receive such emails. You can opt-out of promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions in any communication or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Generally, you may not opt-out of service-related or transactional communications, which are not promotional. If you do not wish to receive service-related communications, however, you may terminate your account by contacting
At minimum, we will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Karitas Productions may maintain some or all of this data in its archives even after it has been removed from the Site.
We strive to make certain that our servers and connections incorporate the latest encryption and security devices. We have implemented physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Credit card and personal information are transmitted by secure servers (SSL). In the event that we mail you documents, documents are delivered to you via UPS or similar overnight delivery services, the United States Postal Service, or email. Unfortunately, no data transmission is guaranteed to be 100% secure and we therefore cannot guarantee the security of information you transmit to or from the Site, Applications, or through the use of our services, and you provide this information at your own risk. ACCORDINGLY, WE DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR THE THEFT, LOSS, OR INTERCEPTION OF, OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR DAMAGE TO, YOUR DATA OR COMMUNICATIONS BY USING THE SITE, APPLICATIONS, AND OUR SERVICES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND ASSUME THESE RISKS.

Legal Bases for Use of Your Information. Our legal grounds for processing your information are as follows:
To honor our contractual commitments to you: Much of our processing of personal data is to meet our contractual obligations to our users, or to take steps at users’ requests in anticipation of entering into a contract with them. For example, we handle personal data on this basis to allow you to sign up for our Online Services.
Consent: Where required by law, and in some other cases, we handle personal data on the basis of your implied or express consent.
Legitimate interests: In many cases, we handle personal data on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in commercial activities in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals. This includes: operating our business and the Online Services; providing security for our websites, products, software, or applications; marketing; receiving payments; preventing fraud; and knowing the customer to whom we are providing the Online Services.
Legal compliance: We need to use and disclose personal data in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations (such as our obligation to share data with tax authorities).
Data Subject Rights.
Residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), Switzerland, and the UK can exercise certain data subject rights available to them under applicable data protection laws. Where such rights apply, we will comply with requests to exercise these rights in accordance with applicable law. Please note, however, that certain information may be exempt from such requests in some circumstances, which may include if we need to keep processing your information for our legitimate interests or to comply with a legal obligation. If these rights apply to you, they may permit you to request that we:

prevent the processing of your information for direct-marketing purposes (including any direct marketing processing based on profiling)
update information which is out of date or incorrect
delete certain information which we are holding about you
restrict the way that we process and disclose certain of your information

Where required, we will use appropriate safeguards for transferring data outside of the EEA, Switzerland, and the UK. This includes signing Standard Contractual Clauses that govern the transfers of such data, which may be used in conjunction with additional safeguards. For more information about these transfer mechanisms, please contact us as detailed in the “Contact us” section below.
