Privacy policy


We make no effort to identify public users of our site. No identifying data is disclosed to any third party for any purpose. Data that we collect is used for server administration and demographics analysis.

What is our privacy policy?

The Rojo y Negro Customer Privacy Policy covers the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information that may be collected by Rojo y Negro anytime you interact with Rojo y Negro, such as when you visit our website, when you purchase our products and services, or when you call us for information or to make a purchase.

Please take a moment to read the following to learn more about our information practices, including what type of information is gathered, how the information is used and for what purposes, to whom we disclose the information, and how we safeguard your personal information. Your privacy is a priority at Rojo y Negro, and we go to great lengths to protect it.

Why we collect personal information

We collect your personal information because it helps us deliver a better service. It enables us to give you convenient access to our products and services and focus on categories of greatest interest to you. In addition, your personal information helps us keep you posted on our latest events, product announcements and special offers that you might like to hear about.

If you do not want Rojo y Negro to keep you up to date with news, events and the latest information on products and services, please contact us using one of the advertised contact methods on the contact us page, requesting to be removed from our weekly mailing lists and other forms of communication.

What information we collect and how we may use it

There are a number of situations in which your personal information may help us give you better products. For example:

  • We may ask for your personal information when you're discussing our classes, events, products or services on the phone, registering for an up-coming event, participating in a survey or purchasing a product.
  • When you interact with Rojo y Negro, we may collect personal information relevant to the situation, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and contact preferences.
  • We collect information regarding customer activities on our websites. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our websites, products, and Internet services are of most interest to them.
  • We may use personal information to provide products that you have requested as well as for auditing, research, and analysis to improve our products.

Your Google ID and related information

The Rojo y Negro and its sister websites employ Google's Checkout service for electronic purchase of goods and services. The Google Checkout service allows you to create a Google ID based on your personal information. This convenient service saves you time and allows for easier purchasing of our web services, at time of initial purchase and for any future ones. Rojo y Negro is not responsible for any part of the Google Checkout service, and none of your confidential information, such as address, telephone number and email, is passed back to Rojo y Negro by Google if you instruct Google to withhold this information from Rojo y Negro at time of registration. Any information we gather as part of this process will be kept strictly in accordance to the confidentiality and use policies as laid out above.

Gift services

Rojo y Negro also enables you to purchase and send gift vouchers, to family members, friends or colleagues. To fulfil your request, Rojo y Negro may require personal information about the person to whom you are sending the product or service such as their name, physical address, email address, and so on. The personal information you provide about that person is used only for the purpose for which it is collected. Rojo y Negro will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.

Publicly displayed information is public

If you use a bulletin board or chat room on a Rojo y Negro website you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. Rojo y Negro is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. For example, if you choose to make information, which was previously non-public, available by enabling certain user features, Rojo y Negro will collect that information from your interaction and the information will become publicly available.

When we disclose your information

Rojo y Negro takes your privacy very seriously. Rojo y Negro will never sell or rent your contact information to other marketers.

With our service providers, vendors, and strategic partners

There are also times when it may be advantageous for Rojo y Negro to make certain personal information about you available to companies that Rojo y Negro has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for Rojo y Negro to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, fulfil customer orders, deliver products to you, provide customer service, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information in accordance with Rojo y Negro policies, except if we inform you otherwise at the time of collection. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to purchase products, have products delivered to you, receive customer service, provide us feedback to improve our products and services, or access certain services, offers, and content on the Rojo y Negro website.

At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.

How we protect your personal information

Rojo y Negro takes precautions, including administrative, technical, and physical measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

The Rojo y Negro websites and associated Google Checkout points of sale use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. To make purchases from the Rojo y Negro boutique or other area, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later, or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it's transmitted over the Internet.

You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser like Firefox, Safari, Camino or Opera.

Integrity of your personal information

Rojo y Negro has safeguards in place to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date for the purposes for which it is used. Naturally, you always have the right to access and correct the personal information you have provided. You can help us ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by contacting us using one of the advertised contact methods on the contact us page. And you can request a copy of your personal information and your product registration history.

Children and minors

Rojo y Negro recognises that parents, guardians, or other adults can purchase our products for family use, including use by minors. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 for marketing purposes, but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the personal information of the purchaser of the product, and will be treated as such by this privacy policy. If a child under 13 submits personal information to Rojo y Negro and we learn that that personal information is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.

Cookies and other technologies

As is standard practice on many corporate websites, Rojo y Negro websites may use cookies and other technologies to help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how much time they spend there. We may also use cookies and other technologies to make sure that our on line advertising is bringing customers to our products and services, such as the Tango boutique. We use cookies and other technologies to study traffic patterns on our website, to make it even more rewarding as well as to study the effectiveness of our customer communications. And we may use cookies to customise your experience and provide greater convenience each time you interact with us.

If, however, you prefer not to enable cookies, or have them disabled in your browser, your experience on the Rojo y Negro websites will not deteriorate or suffer in any way. Rojo y Negro websites are deigned to be as independent of cookies as possible.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We do not log the specific identity of visitors. Our logging is passive; we do not use technologies such as cookies to maintain any information on users, longer than their interaction with the site requires.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyse trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Rojo y Negro will not use the information collected to market directly to that person. To reiterate, all information stored in automated log files is purely for demographic analysis and not for monitoring an individual user's habits.

In some of our email messages we use a click-through URL linked to content on the Rojo y Negro website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.

Our company wide commitment to your privacy

Rojo y Negro takes protecting your privacy very seriously. To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate these guidelines to Rojo y Negro employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company.

Rojo y Negro websites contain links to the sites of other companies. Rojo y Negro is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.
