The types of personal information we collect (directly from you, from third party sources or automatically) and our privacy practices depend on the nature of the relationship you have with Pangaea Mall and the requirements of applicable law. Below is more information on the ways we collect personal information and how we use it.

Technical Information. We may collect certain information automatically through our Services and/or other methods of technical analysis, such as your IP address, cookie identifiers, mobile carrier, mobile advertising identifiers, MAC address, IMEI, Advertiser ID, and other device identifiers that are automatically assigned to your computer or device when you access the Internet, browser type and language, geo-location information, hardware type, operating system, Internet service provider, pages that you visit before and after using the Services, the date and time of your visit, the amount of time you spend on each page, information about the links you click and pages you view within the Services, and other actions taken through use of the Services (such as preferences).

If you consent to marketing by our brand partners you are purchasing from, we will also share your contact and purchase information with them so that they can market their goods and/or services to you directly; Note that you may contact us at any time to opt-out of the use of your personal information for marketing by Pangea Mall, as further described in Section 6. If you want to withdraw your consent to marketing by our brand partners, you can opt out with them directly.

From time to time, Pangaea Mall may perform research (online and offline) via surveys. We may engage third party service providers to conduct such surveys on our behalf. All survey responses are voluntary, and the information collected will be used for research and reporting purposes to help us better serve Individuals by learning more about their needs and the quality of the products and services we provide. The survey responses may be utilized to determine the effectiveness of our Services, various types of communications, advertising campaigns and/or promotional activities. If you participate in a survey, the information given will be used along with that of other study participants.
Anonymous and Aggregated Information. Pangaea Mall may use personal information and other information about you to create anonymized and aggregated information, such as de-identified demographic or psychographic information, information about the computer or device from which you access the Services or other analyses we create. Anonymized and aggregated information is used for a variety of functions, including the measurement of visitors’ interest in and use of various portions or features of the Services, research, internal analysis, analytics and any other legally permissible purposes. We may also share this information with third parties for our or their purposes in an anonymized or aggregated form that is designed to prevent anyone from identifying you.

This includes Technologies that allow you access to our websites, Services, applications, and tools; that are required to identify irregular site behavior, prevent fraudulent activity and improve security; that allow you to make use of functions such as shopping carts; or to comply with the law (e.g. the security requirements of data protection law). We do not need to obtain your consent in order to use these Technologies and these Technologies cannot be turned off as we cannot provide the Services without them.
Performance-Related. With your consent, we may use Technologies to assess the performance of our Services, including as part of our analytic practices to help us understand how our visitors use our Services, determine if you have interacted with our messaging, determine whether you have viewed an item or link, or to improve our website content, applications, services or tools.

We may also share de-identified information as well as selected personal information (such as demographic information and past purchase history) collected via social media pixels on our website with third party advertising partners. Advertising partners may use this information (and similar information collected from other companies) for purposes of delivering targeted advertisements to you when you visit non-Pangaea Mall related websites within their networks.

In addition, from time to time, server logs may be reviewed for security purposes – e.g., to detect unauthorized activity on the Services. In such cases, server log data containing IP addresses may be shared with law enforcement bodies in order to allow them to identify users in connection with their investigation of unauthorized activities.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information. We use secure socket layer technology to protect the security of your payment information and we encrypt your personal information when it is sent over the Internet. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.

By using the Services or providing personal information to us, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of the Services.
