The information collected through these technologies may be combined with personal information or aggregated with other information on website visits.  We may share information about your use of our website with our social media, advertising, and analytics partners, who may combine it with other information that you have provided to them or that they have collected from your use of their services.

Disclosure of Your Information

When the information we collect is aggregated, anonymized, or otherwise does not identify you, we may use that information for any purpose or share it with third parties, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

In addition, we may share information that we collect or that you provide in the following circumstances:

  • With trusted service providers, contractors, and suppliers that we use to support our business and to assist our programs and operations.  For example, we use vendors to provide us our email and communications systems, to host our website, to process payment card information, to provide us information technology and security systems, and to host the software we use in our business.  

  • With our third-party marketing providers in order to assist us with online advertising and the creation of advertising content;

  • With a buyer or other successor prior to or in the event of a merger, acquisition, change of control, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as a part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, where the information is among the assets being transferred; and

  • With our affiliates and related companies, including any parent companies or subsidiaries, and other owners, investors, auditors, business partners, and advisors;  

  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.

Links to Third-Party Websites

Our website contains links to several third-party websites, including social media websites.  These websites have separate privacy policies that you should review. This Policy does not apply to personal information collected through such websites. While we make efforts to choose the links on our website carefully, we cannot take responsibility for the content of linked websites or those companies’ data-handling practices.

International Transfers

Spalon is headquartered in the United States and, as a result, information you provide to us will reside on servers in the United States.  If your information was collected outside the United States, it may be necessary to transfer your information to the United States for processing in order to provide you with requested products and services.  You understand and consent that information you provide may be sent to and processed by us in the United States.  The data protection laws in the United States may not be the same as the data protection laws in your home country.  

Children’s Privacy

Our website is a general audience site and is not directed at, or intended for use by, children under the age of 13.  Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.  Should a child whom we know to be under the appropriate age provide his or her personal information, we will use that information only to respond to that child and inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving such information.
