Information we collect
This information has been split into three categories: internet protocol data (IP), customer information and usage data.
Internet Protocol Data
Whenever you use the Visconti web site, or any other web site for that matter, the web site server needs to know the network address of your access point so that it can send the pages that you request to your Internet browser. The unique network address associated with your computer is called its "IP address" and is sent automatically each time you access any web site. The IP address allows a general geographic location to be extrapolated. We do not keep a long term record of your IP address data unless expressly advised such as when you are purchasing goods through our web site.
This is the information that you fill out while going through our checkout process or opting in to our newsletter service, including your:
- email address
- shipping and billing addresses
- payment details
Usage Data is general information about how you use and interact with our web site that we have worked so hard to design! This is collected using cookies (or similar technologies) placed by us.
