Privacy Policy

We understand that privacy and personal information should be treated with the utmost respect and care. We live in the real world, we surf the 'Net - and we handle our customers’ personal information the way we expect ours to be handled.

To that end, here’s the policy that we follow related to customer information:

You can surf most of the Nuts About Bikes website without providing any unique personal information. Once you take the step to provide us with personal information by a) sending us an e-mail, b) filling out a form or c) making a purchase, the privacy policy rules are immediately in effect.

E-mail Policy

Nuts About Bikes follows best practices in e-mail communication and we make a concerted effort to remain compliant with the federal CAN-SPAM law regulating unsolicited commercial e-mail.

If you enter a contest or fill out a web form - you will be given the opportunity to ‘opt in’ to Nuts About Bikes’s main e-mail database, giving us permission to send you e-mail in the future. You will not be ‘automatically’ opted in - and just sending us an e-mail does not give us the right to add you to the marketing database.

If you make a purchase, you may receive a future e-mail related to your purchase, account or other transactional business information.

When entering contests or sweepstakes on the Nuts About Bikes websites or subscribing to receive e-mail updates, you are asked to give your name, city, state and country of residence, e-mail address, age range and bike type. We store this information for future use.

If you contact Nuts About Bikes via e-mail or regular mail, we may keep a record of that correspondence. The information provided in your correspondence will not be used for a commercial or unlawful purpose. Nuts About Bikes uses e-mail addresses for identification purposes. We may require that adult members provide us with an identifying e-mail address in case we need to contact you for an important consumer service reason.

Nuts About Bikes may direct third parties that need your e-mail address to assist us in providing services to you. For instance, if you enter one of our contests wherein we have a large number of prizes to disseminate, we will provide your e-mail address to a third party to deliver the prize to you. Nuts About Bikes shall use all reasonable endeavors to ensure that any such third party is contractually bound to honor this privacy policy. We will not sell or rent your personal information to a third party for promotional purposes.

Some information is automatically collected from all visitors whenever you visit the Nuts About Bikes websites. This may include your IP address, browser software, pages visited and when plus referring website information. Your IP address tells us both your Internet Service Provider and your general geographic location.

How we use personal information

If you have entered one of our contests or sweepstakes, we will use the e-mail address you provided us to notify you if you have won a prize. If you have opted to receive special offers from Nuts About Bikes or our affiliates, including e-mail marketing, newsletters and promotional material, we will retain your e-mail information for these purposes.

You may unsubscribe at any time if you decide you no longer wish to receive newsletters, announcements or promotional materials from Nuts About Bikes.

Contest winners will be contacted via e-mail and be required to provide Nuts About Bikes proof of age and proof of address. If the winner is under the age of 18, parents or a legal guardian will be required to sign an affidavit for the prize and allow Nuts About Bikes to use the contact information to deliver the prize.
