II. INFORMATION COLLECTION
Bossa Nova collects both personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information. Bossa Nova collects information from you when you register on the Site, place an order, use customer support, surf the Site, or participate in any feature of the Site. When ordering or registering, we may ask you for your name, date of birth, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information or other information. We may also ask you to create a username and password to set up an account. You may, however, visit the Site without providing such information.
Like many websites, the Site uses "cookies" to enhance user experience and gather information about users and visits to the Site. Please refer to the “Cookies” section below for information about cookies and how Bossa Nova uses them.
III. INFORMATION USE
Bossa Nova may use information collected to:
- analyze trends
- administer the Site
- track user activities
- infer user interests
- otherwise induce, deduce, and gather information about individual users and market segments.
- personalize a user’s Site experience
- deliver the type of content and product offerings in which a user is most interested
- better respond to customer service requests
- quickly process user transactions
- administer a promotion, survey or other Site feature.
Currently, Bossa Nova does not require children under the age of thirteen (13) to provide their own personal information when registering a Mechatar on the Site. We only require a child to provide non-identifiable information (such as date of birth, username, and password) and a parent or guardian’s email address so we can notify the parent about the child’s account. Bossa Nova is prohibited by law from requiring a child to disclose more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity as a condition of participation.
If you are under the age of 13, we will not maintain or use any personal information about you or allow you to access features that may allow you to share personal information publicly, unless we have first obtained verifiable consent from your parent or guardian.
If we learn that a child under 13 has submitted personally identifiable information to us without the appropriate consent, we will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from our databases and not use the information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required by law).
The name, address, telephone number and email address of the operator collecting or maintaining data obtained through the Site are as follows:
Bossa Nova Robotics, Inc.
2325 3rd Street Suite 108
San Francisco, CA. 94107
V. THIRD PARTIES
Bossa Nova does not disclose or sell to third parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice, except as described herein. The term "third parties" does not include partners of Bossa Nova such as website hosting partners and other parties who assist Bossa Nova in operating the Site, conducting our business, or servicing you, as long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. In the event that Bossa Nova is sold, or its assets are otherwise transferred, Bossa Nova may provide your information to the purchaser. We may also release your information to third parties when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce the Site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.
Non-personally identifiable user information may be summarized and provided to third parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
VI. INFORMATION CORRECTION

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our Site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and others) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make the Site experience more efficient and some services will not function properly.
VIII. SECURITY MEASURES
Bossa Nova follows generally accepted industry security standards to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access of, maintain data security of and correctly use such personally identifiable information. However, no commercial method of information transfer over the Internet or electronic data storage is known to be 100% secure. As a result, Bossa Nova cannot guarantee the absolute security of that information during its transmission or its storage.
Bossa Nova utilizes Platform Partners to complete credit card transactions. These Platform Partners are solely responsible for collecting, storing, securing and expunging credit card data.
Because Bossa Nova takes privacy and data security seriously and endeavors to comply with all applicable laws governing the use and disclosure of users’ credit card and other personally identifiable information data, Bossa Nova only engages in partnerships with Level 1 PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliant service providers. Bossa Nova does not directly collect, store, secure or expunge credit card data.
