For Customers Who Buy from ESO1000 Certified Ecommerce Stores
ESO1000 collects information from shoppers who visit ESO1000 Certified Online Stores. ESO1000 collects certain non-personally identifying information such as IP addresses, browser types, domain names, time and date stamps, referring URLs, pages viewed, number of clicks, and other usage data. We use this information to analyze trends, to track visitors’ movement in the aggregate, and to gather general information about which pages are visited – all to improve ESO1000 services.
ESO1000 collects certain personally identifiable information when a transaction occurs so that we can issue you a money back guarantee for your purchase from an ESO1000 Certified Online Store.
If a Buyer needs to check their benefits, make a claim, report a problem or to report a suspected misuse of the ESO1000 Certification label, then the buyer must Report a Problem to ESO1000. When filing a report, we require that buyers provide their name, email address, city, name of the web site, URL, and a description of the issue they are reporting. We will use that information to investigate and to resolve buyer benefit claims, including contacting both the buyer and the online store when necessary.
ESO1000 may use the above data in anonymized or aggregate form to provide and improve its services and to develop new services.
