WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
- We collect information when you visit the Site.
We are able to track visitors to our Site and collect information such as the browser type they are using, where they navigate and/or click, the time of their visit, their IP address, how they came to the Site (e.g. from a search engine, including what terms they may have used in their search), their approximate location in the world, certain anonymized behavior data, and so on. Much of this data is collected anonymously. We use this type of information for things like improving the flow of the Site and fixing any mistakes on the Site.
- When you directly provide information to us
Of course, we will have a record of any information you choose to provide to us, for example if you send us an email, apply for a job, purchase a product, add your name to our mailing list, follow us on social media, and so on. In any of these situations we will hold onto this data for our records, and this data may include, for example, your name, email address, shipping information, and any other data you provide, which may be personally identifiable either on its own or in combination with other data.
In the case of social media, note that of course any information you share via social media channels may be accessible to the general public, and anyone may collect and store that data.
If you submit photos to us in any social media context, you thereby grant us permission to use that photo in print or online/electronically for any lawful purposes. Note that if you share information with us on a public social media site, that information may be seen by the general public and any other person or entity might collect and keep that information for their own purposes.
- When you interact with us on social media
- When you email us or otherwise communicate with us directly
Whenever you reach out to us (for example with any questions, ideas, or feedback sent to [email protected] or via other communications directly) we will hold on to your email address so we can respond to you. We may also retain a log of all communications with you indefinitely in order to have a history of our past communications and to better serve you.

Looking Glass reserves the right to use this anonymized information for these or any other purposes.
WHO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH
We do not rent or sell personally identifiable information to others.
You can write us at [email protected] if you want us to not share your information with any third parties. Otherwise we may share your information with reputable third parties with complementary products or services or who are vendors providing services to us.
Other situations in which we may share your information include:

We do share information with our vendors, as described in this policy, for the purposes described in this policy. These vendors are not authorized to use or disclose the information, other than to perform their services for us. For example, as we described above, we share information with MailChimp so that they can operate our mailing list, but they are not authorized to email you directly or share your information with others. The same applies to vendors who operate services for us such as: our forums, our referral program, our job application page, shipping, market research, and payment processing.
While no system for protecting information is perfectly secure, Looking Glass has adopted commercially reasonable technical, physical and administrative procedures to protect the confidentiality of the information that we collect on our site. In the event we become aware of a data breach where users’ personally identifiable information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties, we will make reasonable efforts to let any affected individuals know if we think there is a reasonable risk of harm to those users or if otherwise required to do so by law. If you have any questions about our policy or security, you can write us at [email protected]
Looking Glass will take all reasonable steps to protect the security of the information it collects about you. However, information stored and transferred on the Internet is never completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your information held by Looking Glass and you accept that risk by using this Site.
Our Site is not intended for minors under the age of 13. While we hope that all kids will get a chance to create in Volume, it’s not something they should do without adult supervision, and our website is not directed at persons under 13. Looking Glass will not intentionally collect any information about minors and will endeavor to delete information that is unintentionally collected. If you realize that a minor has provided us with information you may contact us at [email protected] and we will remove it.
