When you use our Service, we collect certain information about you. This information falls into two categories: Personal Information and Usage Data.

Personal Information: This is information that identifies you or can be used to identify you personally. We collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us. For example, when you register with Samfrew.com, we collect your username, email address, and payment information (through a third-party payment processor). You have the choice whether to provide this information, but please note that if you decide not to provide it, you may not be able to use certain features of the Service.

Children's Privacy

Our Service is available to users of all ages. However, we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 without verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information without parental consent, we take steps to remove that information.

While we do not ask for age during the registration process, we advise that children under the age of 13 use our Service under the supervision of a parent or guardian. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13 without parental consent, please contact us at [email protected].

Data Security

The security of your data is important to us. We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your Personal Information when you enter, submit, or access your Personal Information. Among other things, your browser session, as well as the data transmission, are secured with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Despite these measures, the Internet is not a fully secure environment and we cannot guarantee that your Personal Information won’t be intercepted or improperly accessed. Please keep your password safe and do not share it with anyone.

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page and updating the "Last Updated" date at the bottom of this Privacy Policy.

You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
