TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT. We use the information gathered to better understand your needs, to improve the contents of our web pages and to monitor technical performance of our network. The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by users to the Site through optional registration; and (2) other information gathered as users navigate through the Site.
Information You Provide To Us.
We may collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that you voluntarily supply either while using our Site or in responding via email in connection with a feature provided on our Site. Some examples of this type of information include demographic information and personal information (such as your name, address, or email address) that you electronically submit to us for purposes such as registration for certain features on our Site, signing up for email newsletters, or posting comments on message boards or any public posting areas on our Site. We may also ask for information (including a credit card number) from users who make a purchase or conduct other transactions on our Site. The information supplied helps us to provide the product or service requested, offer you more personalized features, and tailor the Site to your interests. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. However, if you choose not to supply information requested, we may be unable to provide you with services offered to users of the Site.
We also may collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate through our Site. For example, we may employ a standard feature of browser software called a "cookie" to assign each user a unique, random number that resides on your computer. The cookie does not personally identify the you; it merely identifies the computer that accesses the Site. Unless a user voluntarily identifies himself or herself, the Site will not be able to ascertain the identity of the user, even if a cookie is assigned to a user's computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information supplied by a user. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help us track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you have entered preference information previously. Of course, you are free to set your web browser to disable cookies or otherwise limit the information we collect; however, doing so may render your computer unable to take advantage of certain features enjoyed by other users of the Site.
We also may use web beacons and other methods to access cookies and to count users who visit our Site or open our HTML-formatted email messages. Our Site's servers automatically collect limited information about your computer's connection to the Internet, including your IP address. The IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send data such as the web pages users view. An IP address does not personally identify a user. We use this information to deliver the Site's content to you upon request and to measure traffic within the Site.
HOW WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION. We use the information we collect in a variety of ways, including using the information to customize features and advertising that appear on the Site. We also may provide your information to third parties, such as service providers, contractors, and sponsors, for a variety of purposes.
Our Use of Information.
The information we gather and collect enables us to provide you with our website and to help you partake of our services. You agree that we may use your information to:
- contact you for customer service purposes
- contact you to inform you of important changes or additions to our Site or the services offered over our Site
- to send you administrative notices, offers and any other communications that we believe may be of interest to you
- operate, improve and maintain our products and services, including analyzing user behavior, and
- administer promotions, provide features and display relevant content to you.
You may withdraw your permission and prevent our use of your information by contacting us using the contact information below.
Information We Share.
You consent to our sharing of information for the purposes described below:
1) Service Providers and Contractors:
We reserve the right to disclose to service providers and contractors all of the information that we collect online about you and other visitors to conduct business on our behalf. These activities could include processing payments, maintaining this Site, and providing business services to us or to you.
2) By Law or to Protect Rights:
We may disclose information when we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to enforce our intellectual property rights, or to protect the rights, property or safety of SVALT and our employees, and if necessary to defend against third-party claims. We may also disclose information when requested to comply with a court order, investigation, or governmental request.
3) Business Transfers:
4) With Your Consent:
We may share information when you provide us with your consent to do so. This may occur when you consent affirmatively or it may occur through your use of the Site as provided in this Policy. For instance, when you request information or services from our affiliates, partners, service providers, or other third parties through us, or when you post information to our Site, you provide your consent for us to share that information with others.
5) We Won’t Sell your Information:
Please bear in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online - for example through comments and reviews or through email - that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides SVALT. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
MODIFYING YOUR INFORMATION AND OPTING OUT. If you share information with us, you will have the opportunity to review, update, change or delete the information you have provided to us (and that we continue to store) at any time. Please contact us by phone, email, or postal mail using the information below to effect changes.
STORAGE OF INFORMATION. All information gathered on our Site is stored within a database accessible only by us, using cloud services. We use industry standard measures, including encryption or password protection where appropriate. However, as effective as the reasonable security measures we implement may be, no system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information supplied will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT SVALT. We do not publish text, images, or multimedia content that portrays nudity, foul language, violence, or other information not suitable for children.

About these SVALT Terms of Service
Svalt has tried to draft simple and understandable terms for humans to read, but it is a challenge given the complexity of the legal world. To help you understand the Terms, we’ve provided this brief description. Of course, this is not a substitute as there are details we’ve had to exclude, so you should read the full terms below.
Your use of the Website
When you visit www.svalt.com and consider or purchase one of our products you are getting more: more performance, more design, and always more cool. www.svalt.com is your home for more on the web. In addition to the opportunity to view and purchase great Svalt products, we may offer opportunities for fans to share their thoughts. When you use our products you do so at your own risk.
We are pleased to provide you with this website, the online store and any forums. We will respect and protect your data and your privacy. When you use our services you are required to observe the laws and these terms, and avoid causing harm. Certain kinds of data are not suitable for our services, and you agree not to misuse our services.
Anything you post on a forum or otherwise add or upload to our website is provided by you, and you agree that you have authorization to use it and to allow us to use it. We don’t own your content, but may need access to it and rights in it solely to provide the services. We’re also constantly improving the website and licensed content and we welcome your input into how we can do better—we may use your suggestions, but you’re not an employee and we can’t pay you. The software providing the services, and things like graphics, logos, trademarks and code belong to us and not to you.
These terms limit your remedies in the event something goes wrong, so please read them carefully. For example, if there’s a mistake and your posts to the forum are deleted, we won’t compensate you for that loss. We also can’t guarantee that the services will be available when you want them, that what we offer is without fault or that our service is what you need for your purposes. In any event, if we do cause harm to you and need to compensate you for the harm, your remedy for that harm is limited to $100. If you cause harm to us or violate these terms, such as by providing inaccurate information or uploading infringing content, we may defend ourselves and require you to pay the costs of the defense or any judgment against it, or we may force you to defend us against a third-party.
