If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. We use an outside company acting as our agent to provide the purchase and authentication transactions. You must provide contact information (such as name, E-mail, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date).

We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you. Neither Image Trends nor our agent retains financial information nor do we provide it to any outside party.

Surveys or Contests
From time-to-time, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information, such as name and E-mail address and, on occasion, demographic information such as country of residence and zip code.

We use this information to improve existing products and collect requirements for future product development activities.

We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company will be prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.
