Ltd. ("FabAlong", "we", "us" and/or "our") in connection with our website, located http://www.fabalong.com (the "Site") and related services (together with the Site, the "Service(s)").

By using our Services you are consenting to our processing of your Personal Information and data as set forth in this Privacy Policy now and as amended. As used herein, "processing" means using or accessing information in any way, including, but not limited to, collecting, storing, deleting, combining and disclosing information.

2. How we collect information

We collect information in the following ways.

  • We collect information that you voluntarily provide to become a registered User of our Service, and when you use certain aspects of our Service (e.g., entering an email address on a form to send an email from your FabAlong account).
  • We collect information when you register to join FabAlong by logging into an account that you already have with certain third-party social networking sites (including, but not limited to, Facebook and Twitter) via our Service. For example, our Service allows you to create an account and login to the Service using your Facebook account credentials through Facebook Connect. If you are not currently registered as a User on the Service and you click on “Sign in Using Facebook,” you will first be asked to enter your Facebook credentials and then be given the option to register and join FabAlong.
  • When you setup/personalize your online closet in the Site.
  • When you place or seek to place an order for product(s) from the Site.
  • When you browse or use our Service, technological tools including “Log Data” and “Cookies” collect certain information, as explained in the following section.

3. What information we collect and how we use it

Personal Information.

When you register with us through the Service to become a registered User of FabAlong, we may ask you for certain information about you that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, gender, profile photo, free-form biography, location/hometown, website and email address. If you decide to create your User account by logging into a Social Networking Site via the Service, you are using the Personal Information you have already provided to the Social Networking Site (such as your “real” name, email address and other information you make publicly available via the Social Networking Site) to create your User account on our Service; the information we collect may depend on the privacy settings you have with the Social Networking Site, so please consult the Social Networking Site’s privacy and data practices. For example, by using Facebook Connect, you are allowing FabAlong to access the Personal Information in your Facebook account pursuant to the Facebook Terms of Use regarding your use of the Service via Facebook.

We may collect your name, email address, gender, billing/delivery address, telephone/mobile number, fax number, payment details, payment card details or bank account details when you place an order for processing your purchase on the Site and any possible claims in the future.

We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your “Non-Identifying Information,” see below) to provide the Service to you. For example:

  • Account registration. We create your User account for your use of the Service based upon the Personal Information you provide.
  • Order Processing. Detect frauds, collect/process payments, delivery products, process refunds, returns and exchanges. The payments are processed by our company FabAlong Technologies Pvt. Ltd. 
  • Communications. We use your Personal Information to contact you with FabAlong newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your “preferences” information in your account settings. (See “Your choices regarding information,” below.)
  • Customer service. We use your Personal Information to respond to your questions and/or inquiries.
  • Messaging/follow/comminication via a FabAlong Account. As part of the Service, FabAlong Users may communicate with other registered and non-registered Users, provide fashion advices, follow each other through use of their FabAlong accounts
Non-Identifying Information

We may also collect other information that you provide as part of registration, the operation, and personalization of pages or online closet on FabAlong that cannot reasonably be used to identify or contact you (e.g., without limitation, age, body shape, skin tone, height and individual preferences) (“Non-Identifying Information”). Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers in a way that enables you to be personally identified or contacted. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other Non-Identifying Information (for example, your viewing preferences). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other FabAlong Users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Service and to analyze and understand how our Service is used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions.

Log Data

When you visit the Service, whether as a registered User or a non-registered User just browsing, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as the browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Service, pages of our Service that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Service, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Service and the Service’s technical administration, to increase our Service’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Service to our visitors’ needs. For example, some of this information is collected so that when you visit the Service again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Service meet the criteria required to process their requests.

Cookies

Like many online services, FabAlong uses “cookies” on our Service to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer or mobile device’s hard disk. We use cookies for two purposes. First, we utilize “persistent” cookies to save your login information for future logins to the Service. Second, we utilize “session ID” cookies to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage by FabAlong Users and web traffic routing on the Service. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from the Service and then close your browser. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Service or all functionality of the Service.
