Communications to Serve You
If you have elected to provide us with your contact information, e.g. by registering at this Site, emailing our Customer Service department or placing an order, we may provide you with service related announcements concerning this Site or contact you regarding your customer service requests or your order. For example, all registered users will receive a welcoming email to confirm their registration. We may also contact you to respond to product questions or concerns that you may express. These types of communications are necessary to serve you, respond to your concerns and to provide the high level of customer service that we offer our customers.
In addition to the essential service related announcements that we will send you as described above, if you opt-in during the STStore (Pty) Ltd registration process or at other times when you submit personally identifiable information, the information you provide may be used to create and deliver to you our newsletters, surveys or other communications containing product and event information, fashion tips or promotions (“Opt-In Communications”). For example, we may look at what you have previously ordered in an attempt to tell you about promotions that will be of particular interest to you. If you prefer not to receive such Opt-In Communications, please do not opt-in to receive these communications or, if you are giving us your details when placing an order, please opt-out when given the opportunity to do so. If you do opt-in (or if you do not opt-out when placing an order) and later decide that you would no longer like to receive these communications, see then “Your Choices” Section below.
We may use your personal information to provide you with customized service and use of this Site. For example, we may suggest products that would be of particular interest to you, inform you of events or STStore promotions, and share fashion tips and style techniques.
