Personal information is information about a specific person, including the person's name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card number, birth date, information about the person's activities and purchases.
THE INFORMATION WE GATHER
When you purchase products from NINES OPTICS and become a registered shopper, we collect and store your personal and transactional information in our customer database. This information is generally used to process your transactions and respond to your requests. You may also receive periodic printed or e-mail communications from us about new products and services, discounts, special promotions or upcoming events.
VOLUNTARY REGISTERED SHOPPER INFORMATION
Your NINES OPTICS Online Account is an optional service provided on the NINES OPTICS web site. You do not have to register for a NINES OPTICS Online Account in order to shop online with us. However, registering allows us to speed up the shopping process for you and lets us offer you access to special features and promotions.
The only personal information our cookie can contain is information that you supply yourself. Our cookies cannot read data from other parts of your computer.
When you provide NINES OPTICS with your email address you will receive NINES OPTICS email newsletters. You may choose at any time to discontinue receiving NINES OPTICS newsletters by opting out or unsubscribing.
We often state on our web site that "NINES OPTICS will not share your e-mail address." That statement is our promise to you that we will not rent, sell, or give your e-mail address to any other organization for the purposes of marketing or solicitation.
However, in order to deliver our e-mail newsletters NINES OPTICS may supply your e-mail address to specific service providers who deliver e-mail on our behalf. We may use service providers to authenticate and validate the information provided by our customers to help assure that our e-mail is successfully delivered. In these instances we have legally binding agreements with these third-party service providers that prohibit them from using your information for any purpose other than in accordance with the terms of their agreements with NINES OPTICS. Therefore, if you sign up for NINES OPTICS e-mail newsletters, you should not receive unsolicited e-mails from other companies as a result of the release of your information by NINES OPTICS.
A second statement we make on our web site is "You can opt-out at any time." This statement is our promise to you that we will respect a decision to stop receiving NINES OPTICS e-mail newsletters. Every e-mail you receive from NINES OPTICS will include a link that allows you to quickly and easily unsubscribe from any or all NINES OPTICS e-mail newsletters.
Please note: Even if you opt out from receiving NINES OPTICS newsletters, in order to process your purchases, we may still send you a confirmation e-mail, or we may contact you by mail or telephone if we have questions about your order.
COMMUNICATIONS FROM NINES OPTICS
In some instances, we may use third-party companies to help us provide products and services to you, to assist us in market research, manage customer information, or to fulfill promotions and communicate with you. Some of these companies are given access to some or all of the information you provide to us. These companies are contractually restricted from using your information in any manner other than in helping us to provide you with the products and services available from NINES OPTICS.
If you want to be removed from all NINES OPTICS marketing, choose one of the following options: visit our Contact Us page to send an e-mail; call 1-909-923-0899 or send your request by mail to NINES OPTICS 2060 S Haven Ave, Ontario, California.

Our web site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the financial information you transmit to us.
