Garage Cell collects some information automatically through the use of "cookie" technology. Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer's hard drive so that your computer will "remember" information about your visit. Garage Cell uses cookies to help Garage Cell collect information other than that User information voluntarily provided and described above, and to enhance the User’s experience using the Garage Cell’s services.

Information Collected from Third Parties

Garage Cell may collect or receive User information from Facebook and/or other third parties where the User has used the third-parties’ services in accordance with their terms of use and privacy policies. Because the information is collected from third parties, Garage Cell has no control over the mechanisms the third parties used to obtain this information or how such information is used by the third parties, and Garage Cell is not responsible for the use of information controlled or gathered by third parties. Please review any third parties’ terms of use and privacy and/or security policies.

 

How Garage Cell Protects Your Information

Garage Cell takes commercially reasonable steps to protect User information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. Garage Cell cannot guarantee the security of Garage Cell’s databases, nor can Garage Cell guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from Garage Cell over the Internet. In particular, an email sent to or from the Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to Garage Cell via email.
Garage Cell does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 through the Nitty or Garage Cell’s services. If you are under 13, please do not send or provide Garage Cell any personal information. Garage Cell encourages parents and legal guardians to monitor their children's Internet usage and to help enforce the Privacy Statement by instructing their children to never provide personal information without their parent or legal guardian’s permission. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided personal information to Garage Cell, please contact Garage Cell, and Garage Cell will endeavor to delete that information from its databases.  You may reach us atsupport@Nitty.com.
User information is segregated and kept separate from other users by account-based access rules. User accounts have unique sign-in names and passwords that must be entered each time a User logs on. The unique nature and complexity of passwords are created and defined by the User. Garage Cell is not responsible for the password created and used by the User, the protection provided by the user-generated password, or any security concerns or liabilities associated with the way the User maintains that password. Garage Cell keeps a record of User passwords but all passwords are maintained securely and altered from plain-text format for added protection. User passwords are encrypted.
Garage Cell utilizes third party offsite data storage. As such, Garage Cell does not control or design the security measures these third party services have in place.
Garage Cell utilizes third party services to handle credit card and payment transactions. As such, Garage Cell does not control or design the security measures these third party services have in place. Furthermore, because Garage Cell uses third party services to handle credit card and payment transactions, Garage Cell is not directly exposed to User billing information and Garage Cell does not retain this information for its own records.

 

Disclosures of User Information to Third Parties

To the extent permitted by law, Garage Cell may disclose a User’s personal information when required by law, court order, or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency, or whenever Garage Cell believes that disclosing such information is necessary or advisable, for example, to protect the rights, property, or safety of Garage Cell or others.

Garage Cell may contract with and employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on Garage Cell’s behalf. Examples may include providing marketing assistance, order fulfillment, billing, and customer service. These other companies will have access to User information only as necessary to perform their functions and to the extent permitted by law. Garage Cell may also limit the scopes of the types of information used and how it is used through its contract with the third party.

If all or substantially all of Garage Cell’s assets are acquired, Garage Cell expects that User information would be transferred along with the other business assets to the acquiring party. However, what information is transferred as well as how that information is used will not be determined until the time all or substantially all assets are transferred. If such a transfer occurs, and subject to that transfer, Users may be notified and Users may be given the option to delete their account information only by providing a written request to delete their account.

California Residents may limit disclosure of their personal information to third parties under California Civil Code Section 1798.83. California residents who have an established business relationship with Garage Cell, including any User, may choose to opt-out of Garage Cell sharing your personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes. If you are: (i) a California resident; and (ii) you wish to opt out; or (iii) you wish to request certain information regarding Garage Cell’s disclosure of your personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes, please send an e-mail tosupport@Nitty.com.

User Responsibilities

Con artists have devised clever ways to trick people into revealing personal information online. The following recommendations are made for the User’s convenience and not for any other purposes. Garage Cell offers Users the following tips in order to protect private information from their end:

Log off and close your browser. Garage Cell recommends that after accessing your account information online that you Log Off of Nitty.

If a breach occurs, notification procedures include providing email notices to Users whom Garage Cell knows or believes may have been subject to a security breach, and posting a notice on Nitty. Such notices will be provided to Users as quickly as reasonably possible.
