This Privacy Statement of COASTAL EXPORT, LLC (“COASTAL EXPORT”) outlines how your personally identifiable information and other personal data (your “user information”) will be collected, used, and shared in connection with your access to and/or use of our website and any content, features, services, or other offerings that COASTAL EXPORT may provide in connection therewith (collectively, the “Site”). This Privacy Statement also describes your choices and rights regarding the use, access and correction or deletion of your user information. By using the Site, you consent to the use of your user information in accordance with this Privacy Statement. If you are located in the EU, you will also be asked to provide clear and unequivocal affirmative consent to the collection, processing, and sharing of your user information via cookies and similar technologies. The Site is owned and operated by COASTAL EXPORT, LLC.
Notice to EU Individuals: this Privacy Statement and its enumerated policies are intended to comply with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 (the “General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”) and provide appropriate protection and care with respect to the treatment of your user information in accordance with the GDPR.
WHAT THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT COVERS
This Privacy Statement covers the Site. While you may encounter links on the Site to other websites, such as those relating to our third-party sponsors, advertisers, and other partners, please note that these websites are not covered by this Privacy Statement.
This Privacy Statement does not apply to the activities of third-party sponsors, advertisers, and other partners that may collect your user information while accessing or using such third party’s services in connection with your use of our Site (e.g. social media and sharing services). The privacy and information practices of those third parties are not covered by this Privacy Statement. To learn more about such third party policies, we encourage you to read and review the privacy statements of each third-party service that you may choose to use in connection with the Site. This Privacy Statement applies only to information collected by us.
WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
COASTAL EXPORT collects data from Internet users including non-personally identifiable information from its site’s visitors, IP address of their server and what pages they visited. We use this information to continuously improve our site’s functionality. COASTAL EXPORT also collects personally identifiable information, including e-mail addresses, from those visitors who opt-in to receive some information from us, make inquiries or comments. We use this information to directly respond to visitors’ communications. If a customer joins our online marketing program, they typically submit some personally identifiable information to participate in this program.
COASTAL EXPORT collects personally identifiable information from those who register on our website or donate through an online system. Such information includes name, address, and billing information. We use this information only to receive payments for the use in donating footwear around the world. We also may collect information regarding your use of our services. We may use this and your personally identifiable information to compile general information about our visitors and our services so that we may improve the services we offer. We may create reports based on that information to share with our staff, but these reports never contain any personally identifiable information. For example, we might determine from all of our data that there are certain days that are better to send emails as part of an email campaign.
Your information is stored on COASTAL EXPORT servers located in the United States. We use industry-standard physical, electronic, and organizational safeguards to protect your user information against loss or theft as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect your privacy. We treat data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company.
Keeping your personal information secure is a top priority for us. Therefore, COASTAL EXPORT utilizes 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, the industry’s leading data security solutions, and has implemented policies and procedures to ensure the physical and electronic security of data stored by COASTAL EXPORT. COASTAL EXPORT employs permission-based marketing principles: it requires its staff to communicate only to users who affirmatively express an interest in receiving e-mails. Permission to receive e-mails may be granted and taken away; in other words customers may “opt-in” and “opt-out”. If a visitor chooses to opt-out, COASTAL EXPORT is required to stop sending messages to that customer. COASTAL EXPORT puts a high value on a visitor’s ability to discontinue receiving unwanted e-mail.
However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. If you are concerned that your privacy may have been breached, please contact us as provided below.
A cookie is a small data file that is written to your computer’s hard drive by your web browser. A cookie file can contain and/or automatically collect information, such as a user identification code or IP address, which a website will use to track the pages and number of times you have visited. The data read from these cookies may be linked to personally identifying (PII) and non-personally identifying (non-PII) information.
We may use a variety of methods, including “cookies” to collect information.
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website.

COASTAL EXPORT collects cookies on our Sites and/or Services to capture information about page visits (e.g. “performance cookies.”) This information is anonymous and COASTAL EXPORT uses this information only internally – to deliver the most effective content to our visitors. Information from the cookie is used to gauge page popularity, analyze traffic patterns on our Sites and/or Services and guide development of other improvements to our Sites and/or Services. Without them, COASTAL EXPORT may not be able to provide core Site functions and features to you, and the Site would not operate as well as you or COASTAL EXPORT would like. These cookies collect and use information such as your server preferences, single-session data and corresponding identifier, web beacons and log files (detailed below), and other credential-related information. For EU individuals, essential cookies also help inform COASTAL EXPORT whether you require, or have already been served, an affirmative consent request in connection with the GDPR. Essential cookies include analytics cookies, which provide us data that allow COASTAL EXPORT to better understand its users and improve the Site based on what we have learned from that data.
By using the Sites and Services, you consent to the placement of the cookies referenced above. You can, however, set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it.

We will indicate that upon selecting your preferences, that we will use a cookie to remember your preferences.
COASTAL EXPORT never gives away information about our users. If you choose to provide Personal Information about yourself, COASTAL EXPORT will use this information only to communicate directly with you. COASTAL EXPORT will not sell, rent or otherwise disclose that information to third parties unless such disclosure is necessary for the purposes set forth in this Policy, by law or a policy or notice contained or associated with a specific Site(s) and/or Service(s).
Notice to EU Individuals: As outlined in this Privacy Statement, COASTAL EXPORT will not process your user information without a lawful basis to do so, as such bases are defined in Article 6 of the GDPR. In general, COASTAL EXPORT will process your user information on the legal bases of consent, contract (if you have entered into an agreement with us and such processing is a necessary part thereof), or legal obligation (as noted above). COASTAL EXPORT may also process certain user information on the basis of the following legitimate interests, provided that such interests are not overridden by your privacy rights and interests: delivering and continuing to develop and improve the Site, learning from your behavior on the Site (e.g., analyzing traffic) to better serve you and other Site users, helping us modify or enhance the Site and its content, receiving insight as to what users do (and don’t) like about our Site or aspects thereof, and providing a stable, consistent, and secure user experience in connection with the Site.
COASTAL EXPORT uses analytics tools and other third party technologies, such as Google Analytics and Doubleclick, to collect non-personal information in the form of various usage and user metrics when you use our online Sites and/or Services.
