Privacy Policy

Racedots.com knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our Privacy Policy. By visiting racedots.com, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

What personal information about customers does racedots.com gather?

You can browse our site as a guest and be free from submitting any personal information. If you place an order, we store your shipping and billing information. If you wish to have your personal information removed from an account you've created, please email us, info@racedots.com, from the email account you signed up with and you'll be removed.

What about cookies?

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as storage of items in your Cart between visits. Our cart needs cookies enabled for proper cart transactions to occur.

Does racedots.com share the information it receives?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries RACEDOTS controls that either are subject to this Privacy Policy or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Policy.

Agents and Contractors

We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.

Promotional Offers

Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of racedots.com customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give those businesses your name and address.

Business Transfers

As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that RACEDOTS, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Newsletter Sign-Up, Privacy and Frequency

If you choose to sign up for our free newsletter, you will receive just a few emails a year—major announcements. Depending on sales, events, new products and promotions, that number may increase slightly. It is not our desire to flood your inbox with daily or weekly information. You will be able to opt out of our newsletter at any time. There will always be a link to unsubscribe on every newsletter. We do not share our email list.

Protection of racedots.com and Others

We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of racedots.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy.

With Your Consent

Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How secure is information about me?

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We reveal only four digits of your credit card number when printing an order confirmation. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing, but this is done with the protection of Stripe and high-quality encryption. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your account and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

What choices do I have?

As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of racedots.com features. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, you will not be able to use important features if you do not use cookies. In addition, the Federal Trade Commission provides useful information about online privacy on its own website: www.ftc.gov/privacy.

Do you sell products for children?

racedots.com does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use racedots.com only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.

Terms of Use, Notices, and Revisions

If you choose to visit racedots.com, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Policy and our Terms of Use, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the Commonwealth of Virginia. If you have any concern about privacy at racedots.com, please send us a thorough description to info@racedots.com, and we will try to resolve it.

Additional Disclaimer

Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
