What personal information about customers does Trending Socks collect?
The information we learn helps us to better serve you as a customer. Trending Socks collects the following types of information.

Most of such information is provided by you when you search, buy, post, participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate with our customer service. For example, you provide information when you search for a product on our website; place an order through trendingsocks.com or through any other online store operated by us; provide information by registering on our website; follow us on or post on social media, communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise; complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form; provide and rate reviews; post on social media.

E-mail Communications: Trending Socks may also use email addresses to contact visitors who communicate with us. For example, we send email to visitors who provide us with their email addresses for specific purposes such as receiving our email newsletters or being notified if they have won one of our contests. Each email newsletter always contains instructions on how to discontinue receipt of the emails from Trending Socks. However, if a visitor at any time chooses to no longer receive such information and opt-out from any future mailings, they should simply reply to any Trending Socks e-mail sent to them and type UNSUBSCRIBE as the subject of their reply, or change their email marketing preferences in their trendingsocks.com account if registered. We also use your email address for transaction purposes so that we can fulfill your order.
Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources. Examples of information we receive from other sources include personal information you have provide to third parties and for which you have given permission to transfer to third parties.

When you register or shop on our website, we need you to provide your name, e-mail address, mailing address, day-time phone number and payment information (when ordering products only), as well as create a username and password. This allows us to keep a user profile so that we may customize preferences for each specific user, as well as provide a faster method for users to submit information to Trending Socks, and receive back either the information or products desired. We may also use the information we collect during the registration process to notify you about important functionality changes to the website, new Trending Socks services, and special offers we think you'll find valuable. When you register, we also allow you the choice whether or not to submit your date of birth, and gender. This kind of information allows us to better know our visitors and possibly tailor any specific features, promotions, advertisements, or other notifications to you.
Visitors will also be given a choice when registering whether they would like to be on Trending Socks' mailing list, or whether they would prefer to opt-out and not receive such mailings from Trending Socks.
Our website also contains an unregistered shopping feature whereby visitors who desire to purchase products can elect not to register. Those who elect to purchase products without registering will be asked only for information necessary to process the transaction.
