The Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person.

You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with Penn Cycle or www.penncycle.com.  Penn Cycle and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our services, content, and advertising. Here are some examples of the types of personal information Penn Cycle may collect and how we may use it.


What personal information we collect

When you create an Penn Cycle account on our web site, or apply for credit, or purchase any product, register for a class at a Penn Cycle Retail Store, or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and credit card information.

When you share your content with family and friends or send gift certificates and or products, or invite others to join you on Penn Cycle forums, Penn Cycle may collect the information you provide about those people such as name, mailing address, email address, and phone number.

 The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Penn Cycle’s latest announcements, and any upcoming events. It also helps us to improve our services, content, and advertising. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime.

From time to time, we may use your personal information to send out important notices, such as communications about your purchases and changes to our policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Penn Cycle, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.

We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Penn Cycle’s products, services, and customer communications.

If you enter into a sweepstakes, contest, or similar promotion we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.


Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

We also collect non-personal information - data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.


Cookies and Other Technologies

Penn Cycle’s website, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our website people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

Penn Cycle and its partners use cookies and other technologies in mobile advertising services to control the number of times you see a given ad, deliver ads that relate to your interests, and measure the effectiveness of ad campaigns. If you do not want to receive ads with this level of relevance on your mobile device, you can opt out by contacting us at internetsales@Penn Cycle.com.  If you opt out, you will continue to receive the same number of mobile ads, but they may be less relevant because they will not be based on your interests. You may still see ads related to the content on a web page or in an application or based on other non-personal information. This opt-out applies only to Penn Cycle advertising services and does not affect interest-based advertising from other advertising networks.

Penn Cycle and our partners also use cookies and other technologies to remember personal information when you use our website, online services, and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience with Penn Cycle more convenient and personal. For example, knowing your first name lets us welcome you the next time you visit the Penn Cycle.com Online Store. And knowing your contact information, product serial numbers, and information about your computer or device helps us register your bike products, and provide you with better customer service.

If you want to disable cookies, check with your provider to find out how to disable cookies. Please note that certain features of the Penn Cycle website may not be available once cookies are disabled.

As is true of most websites, we may gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information could include Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Penn Cycle may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Penn Cycle website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. 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 in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
