Privacy Policy

Last updated January 8, 2017.

There are two different ways you can use Is In Stock, which is a service provided by Is In Stock. You can freely browse Is In Stock to view stock status of AirPods at various stores around the world, or you can choose to be alerted via email when we detect that AirPods are in stock at a store of your choice. In both cases, we collect information from you. We want you to understand how we’re using the information you give to us.

Our Privacy Policy explains:

  • what information we collect and why we collect it.
  • how we use that information.
  • the choices we offer, including how to access that information.

Information we collect

We collect information to improve our products so that we can better serve our users. This information is collected in the following ways:

  • Information you give us. When you sign up to use our service, we ask for a valid email address so that we can contact you via email. We store this information on our servers so that we may refer back to it if we need to contact you again.
  • Information we get from your use of our services. We collect information about our services that you interact with. This information includes:
    • Device information. We collect device-specific information such as your hardware model, screen size, operating system version, browser version, and unique device identifiers.
    • Server logs. Each request you make on our website is logged. We analyze these logs to observe page views, traffic behavior, search queries, device event information, and your IP address.
    • Browser cookies. We, and our partners, use browser cookies to uniquely identify your browsing session. Specifically, we use these cookies to retain your browsing session so that we do not have to continously ask you to authenticate. We also use cookies to store your preferences, such as your region’s time zone, on your device. Our partners, including Google Analytics, use cookies to link your browser to your device, so that we can observe your behavior on our website.
    • Location information. We use your IP address to obtain an approximate location of your device so that we can tailor your browsing experience to your geographic needs.

How we use the information we collect

We use the information that we collect to provide, maintain, protect and improve our services, to develop new services, and to protect Is In Stock and our users.

We use your email address to communicate with you. These communications include user account notifications, AirPods stock inventory alerts, product updates, customer support issues, and may possibly be used by Is In Stock team members to reach out to you if we have a question about your usage of our service.

When you contact us via email, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements. We do not share your email address with any third parties, including our partners, without your consent.

We use the information collected from our cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. One example of this includes adjusting the formatting of time stamps to your local geographic region so that you may use our services the way you prefer.

We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than what is set out in this Privacy Policy.

We process your information on our servers located throughout the world. Your data may be collected and processed outside the country where you live.

Transparency and choice

Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used.

You may freely browse our website without submitting your personal information. You can also freely browse our website with your cookies disabled, but note that our website may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

Information we share

We do not share personal information with companies, organizations, and individuals outside of Is In Stock, unless one of the circumstances applies:

  • With your consent. We will share information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of Is In Stock when we have your consent to do so.
  • For legal reasons. We will share personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of Is In Stock if we have good-faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
    • meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
    • enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
    • detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
    • protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Google, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.

We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners — like publishers, advertisers, or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.

If Is In Stock is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Information security

We work hard to protect Is In Stock and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold. In particular:

  • we encrypt our service with SSL.
  • we require that all emails provided to us be confirmed to prevent spam or abuse.
  • we regularly review our information collection, storage, and processing practices.

When this Privacy Policy applies

Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by Is In Stock and its affiliates, including Is In Stock, but excludes services that have separate privacy policies that do not incorporate this Privacy Policy.

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or services that may be shown to you from our webpages or emails. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our services.

Changes

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes).
