Gathering of Personally Identifying Information
Our Site generally has two areas: a public area that is viewable by any visitor to our site and a restricted area that is only accessible to retailer customers who have registered with our site. The information collected by RAZ differs, depending on whether a visitor accesses only the public area of the site or accesses the restricted area that is only available to registered retailers.
In addition, our site collects two types of information from and about you: information that you provide that may be used to personally identify or contact you – your Personal Information; and information that does not personally identify your Non-Personal Information. We collect this information directly from you when you provide it to us, automatically as you navigate through the site or from third parties.
Categories of Information Collected
RAZ collects Personal Information from Users in a variety of ways.
Contact data in the form of an email address for those visitors to our site that access only the public areas, contact data such as your name, address, email addresses, type of business, billing address, sales tax ID number, phone number, etc. to register an account on our site, financial information or payment information such as credit card, debit card or other payment information collected to pay for purchases made through the site and other information provided by account holders in relation to services provided via our site that may include some personal information, such as transactional information, information that you submit to any forms, or information you provide when you interact with or use the features on the site.
