This notice describes our policies and by visiting www.culturewhiz.org you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this notice.
Any personal information provided or to be gathered at www.culturewhiz.org is controlled by Culture Whiz, Inc. In accordance with the Spanish Data Protection Act 15/1999 of 13 December and other applicable laws, all End Users and Clients have the right to access, rectify and cancel their personal data registered in our commercial database, which has been duly entered in the Spanish Data Protection Register (Nº 20625001445).

Why do we collect information and what do we use it for?
The information we gather from customers helps improve our services for everyone. We use the information to handle orders, deliver products and services, process payments, communicate with you about orders, products, services and promotional offers, update our records and generally maintain your accounts with us. We also use this information to improve our services, prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our website and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf.
Here are the types of information we gather.
Information you give us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way.
Automatic information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use "cookies" and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses www.culturewhiz.org
Third party information: We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
Does Culture Whiz share my personal information?
We do not share information about you with any third party; however, we may send you information about products and services that we think might interest you. We do not give any of your personal information to any third-parties. If you do not wish to receive any newsletters or other promotional email from us all you need to do is adjust your email preference in the Account Management area on the website.
How secure is my information?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. Credit and debit card payments are verified through our bank, Caixa Catalunya (www.caixacatalunya.es). We do not maintain records of any credit or debit card data on our website. We reveal only the last digits of your credit card number when confirming an order. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you. It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.
Can I see what information you have about me?
You can see all information we hold by logging in and looking at the information in your account areas, with the exception of some automatically generated information that is associated with your account for the prevention of fraud.
