This Policy applies only to information we collect from you through the Services identified above, and does not apply to information which you may send us by other means. Other web sites, mobile applications, and other online services, including the social media platforms you use to interact with RES, may have their own privacy policies, and you should consult those accordingly.

Policy Changes —
RES reserves the right to change this Policy at any time. Since this Policy may change as we modify or expand our Services, we suggest you check back from time to time in order to understand how we treat your information. Our Policy’s effective date will always be set forth at the beginning and end of the Policy. Any changes will be immediately incorporated into this Policy, and will be prospective only. We will not make any changes that have retroactive effect unless legally required to do so.
Any change to this Policy is effective immediately. Your continued use of the Services after any changes are made to this Notice constitutes your acceptance of the changes. If any changes are unacceptable to you, you should cease all use of the Services.
If any changes to this Policy materially affect how RES treats or handles personally identifiable information that you have already provided to RES or that has otherwise been collected by RES, we will notify you by email (if RES has a valid email address to use) and give you thirty (30) days to opt-in to the changes as they pertain to your information. If you do not opt-in, your information will continue to be used in a manner that is consistent with the version of this Policy under which it was collected, or the information will be deleted.
Collection and Use of Information —
Personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) is generally defined as information that, by itself or in combination with other information, is reasonably capable of being linked to a specific individual or household. Personal Information can include, but is not limited to, name, physical address, telephone number, email address, username and password, age/birthdate, credit/debit card number or other payment information, photograph, office address and other business information, biometric data (e.g., fingerprints), state and/or federal identification numbers (e.g., driver’s license number; social security number; passport number), or any other type of data that, directly or indirectly, is reasonably capable of being associated with you.
There are areas of the Services where you may be asked to provide RES with Personal Information or other data, or where such Personal Information or other data may be collected from you in an automated manner. For example, Personal Information (and other related data) such as your name, shipping and billing address(es), email address, phone number, password or other account access information, credit/debit card or other payment information, and/or internet protocol (IP) address and other persistent online identifiers may be collected from you when you:

Depending on the nature of the activity, such as if you publicly upload or post content with Personal Information through the social media aspect of the Services, other users of the respective social media service and our Services may be able to view your Personal Information.
RES may use your Personal Information and other data to:
- process orders and payments for gift cards, products or services offered on or through the Services;
- maintain proper business records and other relevant records;
- respond to your questions, comments or other messages;

- provide ongoing technical support related to the Services;
- communicate with you regarding additional uses of your Personal Information beyond the scope of this list or the Policy;
- improve the content and general administration of the Services;
- perform internal operations related to the Services (e.g., fraud prevention);
- troubleshoot software issues and operational problems with the Services;

There are areas on the Services where RES may automatically collect certain pieces of data as you navigate the Services and elsewhere online, such as your IP address and other data about your internet connection, your operating system, browser type, and other services or equipment you use to access the Services, and usage data. This automatically collected data generally does not identify any specific individual, but to the extent such data is reasonably capable of identifying you or another person, we will treat such data as Personal Information.

We may also use third-party analytics service providers, including Shopify through the Skycoaster Store, which could automatically collect certain Personal Information and other data about you through the Services including, but not limited to, your IP address and/or other online identifiers. Third-party cookies may be used through this process to track data such as the times you most frequently use the Services, what devices you use to visit the Services, what parts of the Services you visit and the links you use to get there. These data and analytics service providers may use such information to track how you use the Services, measure the performance of the Services, improve features on the Services, and provide overall operating needs. RES may then use feedback from these service providers to improve the Services and our communications with you.
All of the above-referenced IP addresses and other data will be collected in an automated manner and we may maintain it or associate it with certain other Personal Information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. This helps us improve our Services, deliver better and more personalized services, estimate our audience size and usage patterns, and store information about your preferences.
By providing to RES the Personal Information and other data referenced above, you agree that RES may use such Personal Information and other data in accordance with the terms of this Policy.
Sharing Information —
If you are a resident of California, applicable California privacy legislation permits visitors who are California residents to request certain information regarding RES’ disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request to access such information, please contact RES at firstname.lastname@example.org. Within thirty (30) days of receiving such a request, RES will provide a list of the categories of Personal Information disclosed to third parties for third-party direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the names and addresses of these third parties. This request may be made no more than once per calendar year. RES reserves its right not to respond to requests submitted other than to the address specified in this paragraph.
RES may share certain portions of Personal Information with its vendors in order to make the Services function properly. This may include sharing Personal Information with:
- Shopify to provide hosting, payment processing and other services in support of the Skycoaster Store;
- other payment processors that assist with transactions on the Skycoaster Store; and/or
- shipping companies in order to send you products you order or request through the Services.
RES will disclose your Personal Information or other data if it reasonably believes it is required to do so by law or in cooperation with a government or law enforcement investigation. RES may also share Personal Information or other data in order to avoid imminent physical harm to any person or damage to any RES property.
RES may share your Personal Information or other data with a third party if our ownership status changes, such as if RES is acquired or if we acquire another entity.
Other than what is referenced above, the Personal Information and other data collected from you is neither shared with nor sold to any person or entity outside of RES.
Your Choices —
If you would like to request the ability to access, review, edit, or delete any of the Personal Information that RES collected about you (subject to any applicable legal exceptions), opt-out of receiving further information from RES, or limit what we share, or if you otherwise wish RES to cease using your Personal Information in the manners specified in this Policy (subject to any applicable legal exceptions), please contact us at email@example.com
Any removal of content by RES does not ensure or guarantee complete or comprehensive removal of the content in all places. The content may have been shared or reposted by other parties, or federal or state law may require maintenance of the content or information. RES will do its best to accommodate your request, but we cannot guarantee we can remove all Personal Information from the specified uses. Therefore, please be as specific as possible in your request. If the request relates to information that RES needs to make the Services function properly for you, you may not be able to use the Services properly moving forward.
RES reserves the right to maintain proper business records as required by law, or for otherwise legitimate business purposes to the extent permitted by law, even if such records contain your Personal Information.
If you would like to opt-out of receiving promotional emails from RES, please follow the opt-out instructions at the bottom of the email or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RES does not knowingly collect any information from minors, nor are the Services directed at or intended for minors. If a minor uploads or posts information through the Services without authorization, and such information becomes publicly available, please contact us immediately at email@example.com. If RES learns we have collected or received any minor’s Personal Information, we will delete such information immediately. Again, any removal of content by RES does not ensure or guarantee complete or comprehensive removal of the content in all places. The content may have been shared or reposted by other parties, or federal or state law may require maintenance of the content or information.
Because there is no consistent industry understanding of how to respond to “Do Not Track” signals, RES does not alter our data collection and usage practices when we detect such a signal from your browser.
Data Security and Retention —
RES implements, uses and maintains industry standard technological security measures that are reasonably designed to help secure your non-public Personal Information from loss, unauthorized access or disclosure, both in storage and in transmission.
While RES takes the issue of protecting your Personal Information seriously, you should exercise discretion in what information you disclose and/or transmit through the Services. RES cannot guarantee that information sent over the internet is fully secure. The transmitted information may be intercepted by others before it reaches RES. If you are concerned about sending information to RES over the internet, please send the information by mail or call us to make other arrangements. RES is not responsible for the security of information sent over the internet.
RES retains collected information for a reasonable amount of time in order to fulfill the stated purpose for why the information was collected. RES will also retain collected information connected to business records for periods of time required by law. If RES determines that collected information is no longer needed, it will delete such information. Our collection times will be consistent with applicable law.
