Privacy Policy

At Roundism, we respect and value your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect from you when you visit our website www.roundism.com (the “Website”), how we use that information, and under what circumstances we disclose it. It will also give you information about how to manage the personal information that you provide to us. This Privacy Policy should be read in conjunction with the Terms of Use also located on the Website.

  1. Information We Collect. When you use our Website we may receive and collect certain information (“Information”).  The Information that we may receive and collect depends on what you do when you visit our Website.
    1. Automatically Collected Information.  Some information is automatically received and collected from you when you visit our Website.  This information may include some or all of the following items: 1) the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, including the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using and the IP address of your Internet Service Provider; 2) the type and version of Internet browser software you use and your operating system;  3) the date and time you access our site, the length of your stay, and the specific pages, images, video, or forms that you access while visiting the site; 4) the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Website, and if applicable, the search engine that referred you and any search strings or phrases that you entered into the search engine to find this site; and 5) demographic information concerning the country of origin of your computer and the language(s) used by it.  We use this information to monitor the usage of our Website, assess its performance, ensure technological compatibility with your computer, and understand the relative importance of the information provided on our Website.  We may also use this data to conduct statistical analyses on visitors’ usage patterns and other aggregated data.
    2. Information Collected via Cookies.  “Cookies” are small files or records which are placed on your computer’s hard drive to distinguish you from other visitors to our Website.  The use of cookies is a standard practice among Websites to collect or track information about your activities while using the Website.  A cookie may enable the website owner to track how a visitor navigates through its website and the areas in which they show interest.  Similar to a traffic report, it tracks trends and behaviors, but does not identify individuals.  Information gathered may include date and time of visits, pages viewed, time spent at the site, and the website visited just before and just after a visit to our Website.  How Cookies work on your computer is purely a function of your Internet browser settings.  A cookie that is erased from memory when a visitor’s Internet browser closes is called a “session” cookie.  Cookies that expire based on a time set by the Web server are called “persistent” cookies.  Our Website may use both “session cookies” and “permanent cookies.”  Most people do not know that cookies are being placed on their computers when they visit our Website or most Website because browsers are typically set to accept cookies.  You can choose to have your browser warn you every time a cookie is being sent to you or you can turn off cookie placements.  If you refuse cookies, there may be parts of our Website which may malfunction or be entirely unavailable.
    3. Information Submitted Through The Website.  For most of the browsing on our Website, we either require or collect “User Information.”  User Information is information that can personally identify you, for example, your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address.  You will need to actively submit User Information when: 1) registering an account with the Website; 2) contacting us via electronic means or website submissions; 3) purchasing something through the Website; or 4) joining any email lists.
  2. Security. We strive to maintain internal controls and procedures to ensure that the Information (as defined below) you share with us is handled in a safe, secure, and responsible manner.  We have security measures to help protect against loss, unauthorized access, and alteration of the information in our control.  We will only disclose such Information to employees and authorized service providers who require such information for the purposes described in this Policy.  Our databases are protected by physical, technical, and procedural measures which restrict access to authorized persons in accordance with this Policy.  We cannot ensure against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or destruction of data, though we do take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.  Our information systems are isolated from access by other networks connected to the Internet, and access to Information is granted only to employees who need the information to perform a specific function.  Your financial security is a high priority, and thus we have taken numerous steps to ensure your payment information is processed confidentially.  Our Website is secured using industry standard e-commerce security technology such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology.  We use SSL technology to prevent User Information from being intercepted and read as it is transmitted over the Internet.  Once this User Information is received by us and/or our third party processing merchants, it is encrypted and stored.
  3. Information Regarding Minors.  Our Website is intended for use by adults.  We do not currently market to or create special areas for use by minors.  Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect any Information from individuals under the age of majority in any jurisdiction.  However, we hereby advise all Website users who may be under the age of majority not to disclose or provide any Information on our Website.  In the event that we discover that an individual under the age of majority has provided Information to us, we will delete the minor’s Information from our files to the extent technologically possible.
  4. E-Mail Communications.  If you send an email to us, or provide your email address to us, you are communicating with us electronically and consent to receive communication from us electronically.  We may retain the content of the email, your email address, and our response in order to service your needs.  We may also use the data you provide to send you email or correspondence via other means.
  5. Use of Information.  Our view on using Information is simple: we do not rent or sell it.  We may use your Information to better assist you when you visit us again and to send you special offers for services that may be of interest to you.  We do this by general marketing communications for our services, by either regular mail or e-mail, (collectively, "Marketing Communications").  Unless you "opt-out" through opportunities available to you during your account registration process, we may send you Marketing Communications.  You may also "opt-out" of future Marketing Communications by following the instructions provided in this Privacy Policy under Section VII.  Except where we otherwise obtain your express permission, we share your Information with third parties only under the limited circumstances stated below:
    1. Information is subject to disclosure in response to judicial or other governmental subpoenas, warrants, and court orders served on us in accordance with their terms, as otherwise required by applicable law, or in response to requests by law enforcement.
    2. Information is subject to disclosure to protect our rights or property, protect its legitimate business interests, to enforce the provisions of our Privacy Statement and Terms of Use, and/or to prevent harm to you or others.
    3. Information may be disclosed to: 1) carefully selected third-party service providers in order to provide services to you; 2) provide customer service; 3) send or email Marketing Communications; 4) maintain our database and other programs; 5) monitor the activity of our Website; 6) conduct surveys; and 7) administer contests or sweepstakes.  We will share your Information with our carefully selected third-party services providers on a confidential basis.  These service providers are prohibited from using your Information for any purpose other than providing our services.
    4. Information may be disclosed to process financial transactions.  In this case these transactions are handled by established third party banking, processing agents, and distribution institutions.  They receive the information needed to verify and authorize your payment information and to process your order.  In addition, we may disclose Information to third parties to verify the authenticity of any financial transaction involving our company or its subsidiaries.
    5. Information may be disclosed and transferred if our company or its business is sold or offered for sale to another company or person(s), if a petition for relief under the United States Bankruptcy Laws is filed by or against us, or if we become subject to an order of appointment of a trustee or receiver.
  6. Links to Third-Party Websites.  When you click on links on our Website which take you to a third-party Website, you will be subject to the third parties’ privacy policies.  We cannot be responsible for the actions of any third-party Website.  We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement of any and every website you visit, whether you are linking from our Website or browsing on your own.
  7. Managing Your Information.  We believe it is important for you to be able to find out what Information you have provided to us through our Website, update that Information, and “opt out” of receiving future Marketing Communications.  Inquiries, updates, or “opt out” elections can be accomplished by:
    1. Sending an e-mail with your request and current contact information to admin@roundism.com; or
    2. Sending a request in writing with your current contact information to:
      Roundism, LLC
      540 N. State St. Apt. 2307
      Chicago, IL 60654
      If you send an e-mail or letter request, please be sure to include your full name, address, phone number, and e-mail address and indicate the specific nature of your request.  If you want to “opt in” or “opt out” of receiving Marketing Communications, specifically what type of Marketing Communication (e.g., e-mail or direct mail) you wish to receive or stop receiving.  This will ensure we identify you correctly in our systems and accurately process your request.  We will take appropriate steps to implement your request, but due to production, mailing and system timelines, it may take up to: 10 business days for e-mails or 30 calendar days for mail.  Until that change takes effect, you may still receive or not receive Marketing Communications from us.  Also, please note that even though you may have “opted out” of receiving Marketing Communications, you may still receive business-related communications.  Please be aware that “opting-out” of certain third party use may prevent us from providing certain services that you request.
  8. How to Protect Your Information.  You have several options when deciding how you can best protect your Information.  One option is simply not to volunteer it.  As stated above, this approach would allow you to still visit our Website– although it will prevent you, for example, from registering an account and participating in Roundism’s marketplace.  The Federal Trade Commission’s website – www.ftc.gov – offers useful information about how to protect personally identifiable information provided to a website.
  9. Reporting Suspected Privacy Violations.  If at any time you believe we have not adhered to the policies and principles set forth in this Privacy Statement, please notify us using the contact information provided below.  We will make all commercially reasonable efforts to promptly respond to your concerns.
  10. Changes to the Privacy Policy.  Our Privacy Policy is subject to change, and we suggest that you review the current Privacy Policy at the start of each visit our Website.  Unless we clearly express otherwise, we will use Information in accordance with the Privacy Policy under which the Information was collected.  YOU ARE HEREBY ADVISED, AND YOU ACNOWLEDGE, THAT CONTINUED USE OF THE WEBSITE CONSTITUTES ACCEPTANCE OF ANY AMENDMENTS TO, AND THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF, THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT.
