At ThrowMeAPillow, we consider the transmission of your personal information to us as the granting of a sacred trust. We will never let anyone else have your information. To use it, in any way, beyond the scope of this disclosure, would be a violation of that personal trust which you will have given to us.
We think this plain language explanation is the best way to approach this subject.
There is entirely too much advertising, especially bulk dumping of "junk mail" in our street side mail boxes and online. With that in mind, ThrowMeAPillow has no motivation to gather personal information about you when you visit our store, anymore than they would if you visited our brick and mortor store.
You do not have to "register" to shop here, anymore than you would if you came to our brick and mortor shop. You are free to come and go as you please.
Likewise, if you came to our brick & mortor shop, we would notice if you turned right around and left as soon as you stepped inside. If a lot of people did that, we might go to see what had offended them all. Therefore we track the anonymous statistics on where (which page) people enter, where they go inside and from where inside the site, they leave. We only watch the anonymous statistics so that we can do a good self-examination based on cumulative traffic patterns.
Occassionally, we offer the Free Pillow Give-Away to some or all who register, for the express purpose of building up a list of visitors (but we actually do give away the pillows.) We intend to send a quarterly note (never more than 4 times a year) to advise you of any significant updates in our stock. We hope you will welcome this friendly note with maybe a picture or two and perhaps a coupon inviting you to return. If you don't like that, you may "opt out". Please politely send us a blank e-mail with the words "opt out" as the Subject. You will be eliminated from the list. (and from subsequent drawings, no offense meant or taken)
