This Privacy Policy applies to faire.com, and all other websites, applications, widgets, products, services, and other offerings (collectively, the “Services”) owned and operated by Faire Wholesale, Inc. and our affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, “Faire”).

In certain cases, we may also share some personal information with third parties, but only as described below.

If you are accepted as a Brand for Faire, we may ask for additional information to build out your profile such as your profile photo, wholesale pricing and order requirements, and years you have been established.

When you receive an order through Faire, we will collect information to facilitate that order, such as your Tax Identification Number, tax class, and bank account information so we can pay you.

Optionally, you may choose to provide information about your existing retail customers to refer to Faire, such as their name, store name, and email address.

Using the Services

When you browse and use our Services, we collect information about the items you browse, show interest in, and buy. Some of our Services allow you to create audio-visual content, which will be streamed live to other Faire users. These Services will access the camera and/or microphone on your device and record your image and voice.

Communication with Us

We collect personal information from you when you communicate with us, for example when you request information about our services, contact our Support team, apply for a job, or register for our newsletter.

Surveys, Sweepstakes, and Contests

We may ask you to participate in optional surveys, where you may be asked to provide personal information.

Additionally, we may conduct sweepstakes or contests where you may be asked to provide personal information. This information may be used to contact you about the sweepstakes or contest, and for other promotional and marketing purposes, as permitted by law. Additionally, note that some jurisdictions require us to publicly share information about sweepstakes and contest winners.

Forums and Social Media

Our Services may provide forums, blogs, social media pages, or other channels where individuals may review purchases, talk about their experience using our Services, or “like” or “share” content to social media. Content provided in these channels is public and not subject to the privacy protections laid out in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected Automatically

Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, geolocation data, device identification, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our Services, and the page or feature you requested.

Additionally, we, as well as third parties that provide content, advertising, or other functionality on our Services, may use cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other technologies to collect information automatically through our Services.

These technologies are small data files that we transfer to your browser or device that allows us to provide and enhance our Services. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of these technologies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.

Analytics

We may use analytics service providers, including Google Analytics, to collect information regarding visitors to our Services, such as their behavior on our Services or information about their demographic. For more information about Google Analytics, see https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. To opt out of Google Analytics, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Do-Not-Track

Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. At this time, we do not respond to nor honor Do-Not-Track signals from web browsers.

Information Collected from Third Parties

We may collect information about you through a referral program, such as when a Faire Retailer or Brand refers one of their existing customers, leads, or partners to Faire. If you have been referred to Faire but wish to opt out of emails from us, please contact us as explained below.

If you access our Services through a third party or social networking site, we may collect information about you from that third-party application if that information has been made public via your privacy settings with that third party. For example, if you register for Faire with Facebook, we may collect your name, profile ID, location, gender, profile picture, and list of your friends.

We may receive information about you from other sources, including to supplement the information we have collected about you. In some circumstances, we may receive payment performance information to evaluate your eligibility for extended payment terms (such as Net 60).

We may offer third-party integrations. If you choose to integrate third-party applications with Faire, we will collect personal information as part of that integration. Because each third-party service you may choose to integrate collects different personal information, the detail in which information will be collected will be explained during the integration setup process. For more information on integrations, please contact us as described below.
