Privacy Policy - Astral

This privacy policy (“Policy”) describes how Astral Buoyancy Company (“Astral” or “we”) collects, uses, and shares personal information from individuals (“you”) who interact or communicate with us through mail, in-person events, wholesale accounts, and astraldesigns.com.

How We Collect and Use Information

When you purchase products from us or communicate with us, Astral collects the following categories of personal information from you: your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, telephone number, and payment card details or other billing information. Some personal information is required to process an order through the Astral website or over the phone. We also may use your information to assist with a customer service issue, to improve Astral’s products, or for marketing purposes. If you consent to receive emails from Astral, you will receive information on products, events, athletes, career opportunities, or promotional offers from Astral our affiliates and partners. We share email and purchase data with our email marketing service provider, which uses that information to help us create targeted campaigns that best serve our customers. But this information is not used for any other purposes.

Astral may also automatically collect information from you when you access our website, including but not limited to your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, what type of mobile device you are using, the type of browser you use to access our website, your activities while you visit our site, including session time, pages and products viewed, and the sites you visit immediately before and interacting with our site (collectively “Usage Information”). This information is used to analyze and improve advertising practices to best serve our customers. This also includes sharing some information with analytics vendors or social media platforms. This practice helps us learn what is most attractive to our users to provide more personalized marketing campaigns.

We collect Usage Information through cookies and other similar tracking technology on our website. Cookies are small amounts of data that are stored within your Internet browser, which saves and recognizes your browsing habits. We use both session cookies (which track a user’s progression during one site visit) and persistent cookies (which track a user over time). We also partner with service providers that deploy tracking technologies such as pixels or beacons on other websites where an Astral advertisement or other content might appear to understand whether your interaction with such content leads you to our website. For example, we may post videos on YouTube about recipe ideas or certain products. These technologies help us to understand types and degrees of user engagement and whether our publicity and marketing efforts are effective. As noted further below, information about user activity on our website collected through cookies or other trackers is not sold or transferred to third parties to allow them to make further use of such information for their own commercial purposes or to deploy targeted advertising in other contexts.

We use cookies to help us provide you with a more personalized experience and to improve our website’s functionality. If you do not want cookies to track your activity on our website, you may be able to adjust your web browser settings to limit the function of cookies during your internet sessions. Most Internet browsers allow you to block or delete cookies and other similar technologies from your browser. For information on cookies, please refer to www.aboutcookies.org. Please Note: if you reject or disable cookies, you may still use our website, but your ability to use some features of our website may be limited.
