The Information We Collect
Each time a user visits our website and online store, certain information is collected. That information is specific to your visit and whether you browse, shop or register. Depending on those actions, different unique information is gathered. The below information details the types of information we collect, how it is gathered and what is done with it.
IP Address, Cookies, Pixel Tags and Gifs: Non-identifying Information
Part of each visit to our website and online store is registered through an IP address that may help us diagnose issues with our servers and correct errors. Your IP address also allows us to gather broad, non-personal demographics that help us to analyze traffic patterns and how our site is browsed.
Cookies allow you to use the shopping cart on our site. Without cookies one cannot order from our website and online store. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers transferred from our site to your computer so that we may identify you when you visit. These files also provide sales data thereby helping us serve you more efficiently.
Most computers are pre-set to accept cookies. You can opt to have your computer warn you each time cookies are being selected or you can opt to deny cookies. If you refuse the acceptance of cookies on your computer, you will not be able to complete an online order with us.
In order to monitor the success and usage of our email marketing campaigns, our website and online store may implement 'message format' or 'message open' sensing technology. These technologies require pixel tags or clear Gifs which are unseen to the user, but send the appropriate information to our tracking system. This information allows us to identify if your email accepts HTML or text only emails so that we may send you the appropriate format.

Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is among the best available for secure online transactions. We exceed all industry standards in securing transactions, encrypting all credit card information, name, address and other personal info so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. These measures provide strong security to prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of this information.
As an additional element of our security efforts, RibbedTee.com allows you to create and use a customer username and password to make it easy for you to make future purchases from our online store. We strongly recommend that users select a password that is difficult to guess (in other words, do not use your name, birth date or other familiar phrases).

While some exceptions do apply, it is required that users comply with credit card rules and regulations. Please take the time to review your cardholder policy for more details on this subject. Should you be charged a fee by your credit card company for the illegal use of your card with your purchase from RibbedTee.com, we will reimburse you up to $50 for that penalty.
