Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy ("Policy") sets out how TALAN, Inc. and its subsidiaries ("we", "us", "our"), collect, use, process and disclose information about you when you visit and/or place an order for our products through one of our branded TALAN websites (the "Websites").

Information you give us

You may give us information, including information that can identify you ("personal information"), when you use our Websites, correspond with us, or enter into any of our competitions, promotions, sweepstakes or surveys. Where we request information from you, we will collect the information set out in the relevant forms or pages. You may choose to provide additional information to us when you contact us or otherwise interact with us.

If you purchase any products through the Websites you may be required to create an online account (your "Account"). You are also able to create an Account with us without placing any orders. You may also be able to place orders without creating an Account via the "Guest Checkout" feature.

The information that you provide when setting up your Account may include your name, email address and telephone number. If you register to hold an Account with us, you will also have a unique username and password which enables you to access your Account.

Please note that we will not be storing your payment information, which will be processed and stored by a third party payments company (e.g. PayPal or Paymentech), although we may store certain information like your billing address and the last 4 digits of your card number.

If you subscribe to receive our newsletter, then you will provide us with your name and email address (and possibly even your relevant interests!) although you may optionally also provide your gender and date of birth.

If you contact us via email then we will collect your email address.

You may also submit personal information in connection with photos/stories/videos for our potential use and/or publication (for example, as part of competitions) or via reviews or our message boards. We may use some of these in marketing campaigns but if we do we will ensure that you are made aware of such use prior to the campaign going live and given an opportunity to understand the intended use and, if you choose, object to the use.

The personal information that you provide to us will be used for the purposes made clear to you at the time you submit your information, for example for enabling you to use our Websites and placing orders online and/or for administrative and troubleshooting purposes, and, as explained in section titled "Information we receive from other sources,” we may also use this information for further purposes when combined with other data we collect about you.

We and our third party marketing partners may also use the information you send to us for our marketing purposes, if this is in accordance with your marketing preferences. However, you will always be able to opt-out of our marketing at any time (see the "How to opt in or opt out of direct marketing" section below).

Internet-based transfers

Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal information necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. While we generally try to store the personal information that we collect about you through our Websites in your region (for example for European visitors, in the European Economic Area), it is likely that your personal information will be transmitted to parties outside your region (where data protection laws may be different).

Please also note that your personal information may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States, whose data protection laws may be different to the laws in your country. In any event, we will ensure your personal information remains adequately protected in accordance with the standards described in this Policy, wherever it is processed. We will also ensure that any transfers described in this section take place in compliance with contractual or other measures to protect the information.


We use appropriate technical, organizational and administrative measures to protect any personal information we process about our visitors, our customers and their end users. However, please note that no Internet transmission can ever be guaranteed 100% secure, and so we encourage you to take care when disclosing personal information online and to use readily available tools, such as Internet firewalls, anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and similar technologies to protect yourself online.

Where you have a password, which enables you to access our Websites, you are responsible for keeping this password secure and confidential.

Changes to this Policy

If we change this Policy, we will post those changes on this page in addition to updating the "Last Updated" date at the top of this webpage. If we make material changes, we will notify you more directly, for example by posting a notification or message on the Websites or by emailing you prior to such changes taking effect.
