Every time you visit our website, we automatically collect your internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

When you purchase from WhimsyWraps or submit an online form, we collect information that you volunteer such as your name, email address, postal address, phone number and other information necessary to process your order or request.

We also collect the information you provide to us when you register for “My Account”, participate in a contest or sweepstakes promotion, fill out a survey or questionnaire, or contact us (for example via email or form submission.)

How do you use my information?

The information we receive allows us to tailor our product offer and improve your shopping experience, making shopping easier and more enjoyable. It also enables us to process your purchases, confirm your orders, customize the content and layout of our pages, notify you about updates to our websites and products, and provide you with marketing information.

The information you supply to us is added to our customer database. You may receive periodic mailings from us about new products and services, discounts, special promotions or upcoming events if you choose to subscribe to our email newsletter. If you do not want to receive such mailings from us, you can unsubscribe at any time.

The information we collect will not be shared with our subsidiaries, agents, third-party content providers, affiliates, or other entities, except for the purpose of providing the services or information that you have specifically requested.

In some instances, we use third-party companies to help us provide our products and services to you, to assist us in managing customer information, to fulfill promotions and to communicate with you. Some of these companies are given access to some or all of the information you provide to us. These companies are contractually-restricted from using your information in any manner other than in helping us to provide you with the products and services available from WhimsyWraps.

We may share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (1) permitted or required by law; or, (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or, (3) investigating fraud which has already taken place. The information is not provided to these agencies or companies for marketing purposes.

What are ‘cookies’ and how does WhimsyWraps use them?

“Cookies” are text-only pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual’s hard drive or other website-browsing equipment for record-keeping purposes. Cookies allow the website to remember important information that will make your use of the site more convenient. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other value. Certain cookies will be used on the Site regardless of whether you are logged in to your account or not. Like most websites, we use cookies for a variety of purposes in order to improve your online experience, for analytics and for marketing, but specifically, we use Cookies on the website for the following purposes:

  1. Analytical Purposes: We use Cookies to analyze user activity in order to improve the website. For example, using Cookies we can look at aggregate patterns like the average number of product searches that users perform. We can use such analysis to gain insights about how to improve the functionality and user experience of the website.
  2. Your Preferences: We use Cookies to store certain user preferences on our website. For example, we may store the recent products you have viewed in a Cookie so that we can allow you to easily return to those products when you return to our website.
  3. Marketing: We use Cookies from third-party partners such as Google and Facebook for marketing purposes. These Cookies allow us to display WhimsyWraps promotional material to you on other sites you visit across the Internet. WhimsyWraps may also share aggregate information about your behaviour on the Site with third-parties (including operators of third-party websites and/or social networking sites) in order to show you targeted advertisements and other content that has been customized for you.
  4. Referral Tracking: We use Cookies to associate user activity with the third-party website that referred the user to our website. These third-party partner websites receive credit for the activity of users they refer to our website. We do not share any personal information or information about individual user activities with these partner entities.

Session Cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the website.

Persistent Cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). When we use session cookies to track the total number of visitors to our website, this is done on an anonymous aggregate basis (as cookies do not in themselves carry any personal data). We may also employ cookies so that we remember your computer when it is used to return to the website to help customize your WhimsyWraps web experience. We may associate personal information with a cookie file in those instances. Use the options in your web browser if you do not wish to receive a cookie or if you wish to set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. You can easily delete any cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser.

We recognize that you have a choice to refuse cookies. However, by choosing to accept a WhimsyWraps cookie you allow us to maintain the preferences stored in your WhimsyWraps "My Account" and process your order. If you choose not to accept the cookie, purchasing is not possible on the WhimsyWraps site.

If you are shopping WhimsyWraps and are having difficulty adding a product to your shopping cart or completing your order, please check your privacy settings in your browser.

How can I update or access my information?

To update any information you provided to us during registration or checkout, login to My Account and modify your account profile. If you would like to delete your entire account with WhimsyWraps, please contact us.

How do I know my information is secure?

We want you to feel completely secure when ordering from WhimsyWraps. Our website uses Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) to encrypt your personal information, including your credit card number, before it travels over the Internet. SSL technology is the industry standard for secure online transactions. Because we use SSL, placing an order online at our website is just as safe as giving your credit card number over the phone.

For your further protection, we do not receive or store any of your private payment or financial information during checkout as this process is handled by PayPal. For more information read PayPal's Privacy and Security information.

Third Party Advertising, Analytics and Services

We allow third parties to serve advertisements that are targeted to your interests and we engage third parties to provide analytics services. These third parties may use cookies, web beacons, and other technologies to collect information about your use of the WhimsyWraps website, including your IP address, web browser, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked, and conversion information. In some cases, the information in these cookies and other technologies may be linked to data you voluntarily submitted to us, such as your email address, which we may share in hashed or encrypted form. This information may be used by WhimsyWraps and these third parties to analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests on our Services and other websites and mobile applications, and better understand your online activity. This Policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, third party cookies, web beacons, or other tracking technologies. For more information about interest-based ads, or to opt out of having your web browsing information used in this way, please visit

We may also work with third parties to serve ads to you as part of a customized campaign on third-party platforms (such as Facebook or Google).

Note that the third-party platforms may offer you choices about whether you see these types of customized ads.

We may also use a third party to "power" product reviews and product questions / answers on our website. When you submit a product review, questionnaire or form, you may become subject to the terms of use and privacy policy of this third party and the reviews or responses you submit may be posted on our website and on third-party sites.

Children’s Policy

WhimsyWraps does not seek to solicit information from anyone under the age of thirteen (a "Child"). If a Child submits information to us and we know that the person submitting the information is a Child, we will not use it for any purpose. We will delete the information as soon as we discover it and we will not disclose it to third parties.

Changes To This Privacy Policy Statement

From time to time, we may use the information you provide us for new, unanticipated uses not previously addressed in our Privacy Statement. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes on the privacy page of our website to notify you of these changes.
