This Privacy Policy is the yinzer-approved guide that governs how Yinzergear collects, uses, maintains, and discloses information from users (each, a “User”) of the yinzergear website (“Site”). This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by Yinzergear – it’s like the pierogi filling to our dough, folks.

Personal identification information

Now, yinz might be wonderin’ how we collect personal info. Well, we may gather it in various ways, like when Users visit our site, register, place an order, fill out a form, or participate in any activities, services, features, or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked for their name, email address, mailing address, phone number, or credit card information. But don’t worry, we ain’t nebby!

Users can even visit our Site anonymously like they’re wearing a Steelers jersey in a sea of Ravens fans.

We’ll only collect personal identification information from Users if they voluntarily submit it. Users can refuse to give us their info, but it might stop them from enjoying some Site-related activities.

Non-personal identification information

We may also collect non-personal identification information about Users when they interact with our Site, like the browser name, computer type, and technical info about Users’ connection to our Site, such as the operating system and Internet service providers. It’s like knowing what toppings yinz like on your Primanti Bros. sandwich.

Web browser cookies

Our Site might use “cookies” to make the User experience tastier (not the edible kind, though). User’s web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping and to track info. Users can choose to set their browser to refuse cookies or to alert them when cookies are being sent. But if they do, some parts of the Site might not work properly, like a ketchup bottle that’s almost empty.

How we use collected information

Yinzergear collects and uses Users’ personal information for a few purposes:

To improve customer service: Your info helps us respond to your customer service requests and support needs more effectively, like a well-timed Terrible Towel wave.

To personalize user experience: We might use info in the aggregate to understand how our Users as a group use our services and resources on our Site.

To improve our Site: We always strive to improve our website based on the info and feedback we receive from yinz.

To process transactions: We’ll only use the info Users provide when placing an order to fulfill that order. We don’t share it with outside parties, ’cause we are jagoffs.

To administer content, promotions, surveys, or other Site features: We’ll send Users info they agreed to receive about topics we think will interest them.

To send periodic emails: We’ll use the email address Users provide for order processing to send info and updates about their order, respond to inquiries, or other requests or questions. Users can opt-in to our mailing list and unsubscribe at any time, no hard feelings.

How we protect your information

We use appropriate data collection, storage, and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal information, like the Great Wall of Pittsburgh. (I know, but we are trying here)

Sensitive and private data exchange between the Site and its Users occurs over an SSL-secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures, just like a secret yinzer handshake.

Changes to this privacy policy

Yinzergear has the discretion to update this privacy policy whenever we feel like it. When we do, we’ll post a notification on the main page of our site, and update the date at the bottom of this page. We encourage Users to check this page frequently to stay informed about how we’re protecting the personal information we collect. By doing so, you’re like the goalie of your own privacy! You acknowledge and agree that it’s your responsibility to review this privacy policy periodically and become aware of any modifications.

Your acceptance of these terms

By using this Site, yinz signify your acceptance of this policy and terms of service. If you don’t agree, that’s alright – but please don’t use our Site. Your continued use of the Site after we post changes to this policy means you’re cool with those changes, like enjoying a cold Iron City beer on a hot summer day.
