Information We Collect
We automatically collect information regarding the actions you take on the Site (“Usage Data”). For example, each time you use the Web Site we may automatically collect the type of Web browser you use, your operating system, your Internet Service Provider, your IP address, the pages you view, and the time and duration of your visits to the Web Site. This anonymous usage information may be associated with your username or other personal information. We use this information to help us understand how people use the Web Site, and to enhance the services we offer. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer the Web Site. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart and to gather broad demographic information. Some of this information may also be stored using cookies. Also, we may receive other information about you from third party sources, and we will add that to our account information.
We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you are on another website and you opt-in to receive information from Shop C2TC, that website will submit to us your email address and other information about you so that we may contact you as requested. You may also choose to participate in a third party application or feature (such as one of our Facebook or Twitter applications or a similar application or feature) through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including Usage Data and personal information such as lists of your friends, "likes", comments you have shared, groups and location. In addition, we may receive information about you if other users of a third party website give us access to their profiles and you are one of their "connections" or information about you is otherwise accessible through your "connections" web page, profile page, or similar page on a social networking or other third party website or interactive service. We may supplement the information we collect about you through social media and similar sites with such information from third parties in order to enhance our ability provide you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
How We Use Information and When We May Share and Disclose Information Generally
We use your personal information and Usage Data to provide the Web Site, to fulfill your orders, and to otherwise provide you with services that you request. We may also use your personal information to e-mail, text message, mail, or otherwise send you information about new products and special features atShop C2TC.

Security and Credit Card Safety
Protecting the safety of your credit card information is important to us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your credit card information as it is transmitted to us. SSL is a highly sophisticated method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our Web Site's servers.
To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal financial information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your Web browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or “Address” line of your Web browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from "http" to "https".
That said, no data transmission over the Internet or other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through the Web Site, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you transmit on or through the Web Site, and you do so at your own risk.
We urge our customers to be cautious with personal and account information.
If you think that you may have disclosed your personal or account information in error, or that you have been a victim of fraudulent account activity, please contact your bank and/or credit card company immediately. You may also wish to contact a credit reporting agency.
