Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy and security is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
WinkBalloons.com customers have the right to remain anonymous except in circumstances where personal information is required to complete a credit card or account transaction. WinkBalloons.com will not disclose the sender information to the recipient unless specifically requested to do so by the customer.
Use of Information
Credit Card Security
No credit card details are held or stored in our database. Credit Card details are entered on our website using BrainTree Payments a company owned by PayPal. Please refer to www.braintreepayments.com and www.paypal.com for their security statement.
Apart from where you have consented or disclosure is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was submitted, personal information may be disclosed in special situations where we have reason to believe that doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone damaging, injuring, or interfering (intentionally or unintentionally) with our rights or property, users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. Also, we may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires disclosure.
We may engage third parties to provide you with goods or services on our behalf. In that circumstance, we may disclose your personal information to those third parties in order to meet your request for goods or services.
We strive to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personal information submitted to our sites, and we review and update our security measures in light of current technologies. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure.
However, we will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect the personal information you may transmit to us or from our online products and services. Once we do receive your transmission, we will also make our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
In addition, our employees and the contractors who provide services related to our information systems are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by us. However, we will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information.
Access to Information
We endeavour to take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information which we hold about you, and to keep this information accurate and up to date. If, at any time, you discover that information held about you is incorrect, you may contact us to have the information corrected by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, our employees and the contractors who provide services related to our information systems are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by us.
A variety of security measures, including restricting physical access to our offices, and firewalls and secure databases are in place in order to keep personal information secure, preventing misuse, loss or unauthorised use or disclosure. However, the Internet is not a secure environment. If you use the Internet to send us any information, including your email address, it is sent at your own risk.
Links to other sites
We may provide links to Web sites outside of our web sites, as well as to third party Web sites. These linked sites are not under our control, and we cannot accept responsibility for the conduct of companies linked to our website. Before disclosing your personal information on any other website, we advise you to examine the terms and conditions of using that Web site and its privacy statement.

Privacy in Email
In email communications, there has always been, and always should be, an expectation of privacy between the sender and the intended recipients of a message. Privacy is compromised, however, if personal information or private email content is shared with parties other than the sender and intended recipients without their consent. WinkBalloons.com does not share or reveal email content or personal information with third parties. Email messages remain strictly between the sender and intended recipients.
