PRIVACY POLICY

Bond, Inc ("Bond") is a service designed to form a network of luxury fashion stylists and sales associates so that they may collaborate amongst themselves and conduct business with their VIP clientele. This Privacy Policy explains how we at Bond collect, use, and disclose information about you through our website, mobile applications, and other online products and services (collectively, the "Services") or when you otherwise interact with us.

 

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time.  If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you a notification).  We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services or otherwise interact with us to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you.

 

Collection of Information 

Information You Provide to Us

When you open an account with Bond, we ask you to provide certain information based on whether you are a brand representative (“Agent” or “Stylist”) or a brand consumer (“Client”) (referred together as “you”). If you are an Agent or Stylist, we ask you for some basic information to setup your business account such as your first name, last name, email address, phone number, your work address, and what store or brand you are affiliated with. If you are a Client, we typically ask you for your first and last name, email address, phone number, payment information (managed through a third-party payment processor) and shipping address. We also collect order information if you place an order through our Services such as the item brand, the item type, size, item cost, and shipping information. 

We also collect information when you participate in any interactive features of the Services, fill out a form, participate in a contest or promotion, make a purchase, apply for a job, communicate with us via third party social media sites, upload a picture or any media to the Services, use our Services to communicate with others, sign up for our information list and newsletter, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us, or when you otherwise choose to provide information to us.
