PRIVACY POLICY AND TERMS OF USE


Our privacy policy and terms of use are effective June 1, 2019.

Visitor from Mars (the Company) designs and sells journals to write in. The only personally identifiable information a journal buyer provides on the website is the standard information to complete a purchase through PayPal, Credit Cards, or Amazon. 

Other than completing purchases with those credit entities, we have no knowledge that anyone is collecting personally identifiable information (pii) while a customer is on the site.


If a purchase is not made, we obtain no personally identifiable information about the visitor to the site.


We do not use cookies.


We do not do online tracking.


We do not sell personally identifiable information.


Questions or concerns about our privacy policies and terms of use of the site can be directed to Carol McCleary at visitorfrommars@verizon.net.


We do not knowingly sell or ship any items ordered through our site directly to anyone who we know to be under the age of 13, nor do we collect any personally identifiable information (pii) from anyone who we know to be under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 18, you should use this Site only with the involvement of a parent or guardian and should not submit any pii to us. If we discover that a person under the age of 13 has provided the company with pii, the company will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such person’s pii from its system.


We strive to ensure the security of the use site. Unfortunately, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. The company cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We cannot and do not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit and you do so at your own risk. 


CHOICE OF LAW: This privacy policy, including all revisions and amendments thereto, is governed by the internal laws of the United States, State of California, without regard to its conflict or choice of law principles which would require application of the laws of another jurisdiction.


ARBITRATION: By using this Site in any way, you unconditionally consent and agree that: (1) any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) you may have against our company and/or its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates and each of their respective officers, directors and employees (all such individuals and entities collectively referred to herein as the “Company Entities”) arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the Site or the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; (2) this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (3) the arbitration shall be held in the major United States city that is closest to your place of residence; (4) the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable user may have entered into in connection with the Site; (5) the arbitrator shall apply California law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (6) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, arbitration can decide only your and/or the applicable company entity’s individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (7) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against you or any company entity; (8) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against any company entity exceed $125 USD, and you are unable (or not required under the rules of JAMS) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, Company agrees to pay them and/or forward them on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator. In addition, if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Company will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (9) with the exception of subpart (6) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (6) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Company shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.
