Privacy & Security
In order to purchase from MrIceBucket.com ("MIB"), a user must set up an account or purchase as a Guest. When you set up an account, the following personal information will be requested: first and last name, mailing address, shipping address, phone number, email address and a password selected by you (“personal information”). When purchasing as a guest the same personal information will be collected with the exception of a password. The personal information we collect will only be used by Mr. Ice Bucket ("MIB"), or any of their agents or employees, for the purposes of fulfilling orders, tracking your purchasing history, providing a more efficient shopping experience, and for general marketing purposes. Your email and mailing address will be used to confirm your orders and to receive special offers from MIB. We WILL NOT SELL any of your personal information. MIB gathers customer information needed to provide superior service, communicate offers on merchandise and services that we think will be of interest to you. In order to best serve you, we may gather information from you in a few instances.
First, when you visit our site, we may collect non-personally identifiable information from you. Through the use of a "cookie" (a small piece of information that can stored by the browser on your hard drive), we collect data, such as your IP address, browser type, domain name, and specific MIB web pages through which you click. These cookies do not contain any personally identifying information, such as your name, or sensitive information, such as your credit card number. This data is collected automatically, and utilized in aggregate to help us look for trends so that we can improve our website and your experience. The cookies also allow us to recognize you when you return to our site and to provide you with a customized experience that we feel will be of value to you.
Most web browsers allow you to exercise control over cookie files on your computer by erasing them, blocking them, or notifying you when such a file is stored. Please take a look at your particular browser for instructions on this function. If you do elect to disable the MIB cookie, please note that you may not be able to take full advantage of a personalized experience at MrIceBucket.com.
Second, we may ask you to voluntarily provide information in a few circumstances. When you purchase items, we will ask you to voluntarily provide certain personally identifiable information, such as, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit card number. We need this information to process and fulfill your order and notify you of order status. Other examples of when we may ask you to voluntarily provide personally identifiable information include if you subscribe to our email program, choose to provide us preference information, or when you enter a sweepstakes or promotion (information such as name, address and telephone number).
Additionally, in order to provide you with goods and services designed to meet your needs, we may collect demographic information (such as number of household members, age, and gender), purchase preference information, and mailing lists from third parties. We use this information to customize your experience on our website and to provide you with the most relevant products and services.
When you place an order or otherwise provide personal information through MIB, the information is passed through a secure server. The data submitted is encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) before it is sent to us. Although no data transmission over the internet is guaranteed to be 100% secure, SSL encryption provides one of the highest levels of Internet security currently available. “Phishing” is a scam designed to steal your personal information, whereby a third party sends an email to you which looks like it could be from MrIceBucket.com and asks you for your personal information. We will never request your password, user name, credit card information or any other personal information through email. Do not provide any personal information in response to an email which appears to be from Mr. Ice Bucket and contact our customer service immediately.
Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
