manifesto

Byronesque is a celebration of subculture’s most revered fashion rebels.

Whose work inspires us to stand against the banality and mediocrity of pop culture: of statistics and selfies.

With a more meaningful alternative to fast-fashion and outdated nostalgia.

With something more polarizing and more provocative.

Movements like the mods, punks, skinheads and new romantics; they each had a point of view, creating a visual tension that alienated and inspired in equal measure.

You were either with them or against them. That happens rarely today.

We don’t look like anyone else.

We’re not borrowing from the past. We’re the future of fashion.

Byronesque automatically receives and records nonpersonal information on our server logs from your browser as well as through other analysis of the Site. We may also collect information using cookies, web beacons or similar technologies, or through third parties using similar technologies. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a website that is saved on your hard drive by your computer’s browser. Cookies help us remember when you return to our Site. Cookies also hold information the Site may need to personalize/enhance your experience and to gather statistical data, such as which pages are visited, what is included in your shopping cart, the Internet provider’s domain name and the addresses of the websites visited immediately before coming to and immediately after leaving the Site. However, none of this information is associated with you as an individual. It is measured anonymously and only in the aggregate. The information in the cookies lets Byronesque trace your ‘clicktstream’ activity (the paths taken by visitors to our site as they move from page to page). This enables us to better serve our customers by revealing which portions of our Site are most popular. You can always disable cookies on your browser.

You may not opt out of receiving communications regarding your dealings with the Site or technical information about the Site.

USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We use the information we collect:

  • to process and respond to your inquiries
  • for the purposes for which you provided the information
  • to identify your product and service preferences, so we can notify you of new or additional products, services and member benefits that might be of interest to you

  • to improve our editorial content, merchandise selections, customer service and overall experience
  • to communicate with you by email, postal mail, telephone or other means

WHEN WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

We may disclose information to others as follows: (1) retail providers, to enable shipment of your orders (2) for the purposes of outsourcing one or more of the functions described in this privacy policy to service providers who work on behalf of or with Byronesque under confidentiality or similar agreements, including vendors, advertisers, consultants and affiliates; (3) to confirm or update information provided by you; (4) in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or disposition of all or any portion of Byronesque’s business or operations (including without limitation in connection with bankruptcy or any similar proceedings); or (5) as otherwise authorized by you. We do not disclose your email address to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

We also may use and share nonpersonally identifiable information with third parties. Additionally, we may take personally identifiable information and de-identify it and share it in a de-identified or aggregated form with third parties, advertisers and/or business partners in order to analyze Site usage, demographics or interests, improve our products or services, improve our user experience or for similar purposes. We will not re-identify such data and we will ask our contracting parties to agree to keep the data in its de-identified form.

Compliance with Law: We also may share your information when in response to a subpoena, legal order or official request, when we believe you have acted in violation of the terms, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected illegal activities, fraud or potential threats, or exercise legal rights or defend against claims, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Site, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights, to protect the rights, property or safety of Byronesque or others, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.

SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION

Byronesque uses reasonable administrative, physical and electronic security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. In addition, it is our policy to never send your credit card number via email. Please note that email is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information.

We use Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the industry standard in transferring information to process your orders made on the Site. The SSL encrypts, or translates, your order information into a highly indecipherable code, which is processed immediately. All credit card transactions occur in a secure area of our site, to protect you from any loss, misuse or alteration of information collected. When you have finished shopping and begin the checkout process, you will move into the secure area of our site. Once you’ve entered, the page address (URL) will change from http to https, to let you know you are in a secure area. You will remain in this secure zone for the entire checkout process.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the transmission of data over the internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we use reasonable means to ensure the security of information you transmit to us, we cannot guarantee that third parties will not intercept such information. Any such transmission is at your own risk.

CHILDREN'S PRIVACY

The Site is intended for use by individuals over the age of 18 and not for children. Byronesque does not knowingly collect information from children under 18 on the Site. If you are under 18, you should not submit any personally identifiable information on the Site.

NOTICE OF PRIVACY RIGHTS OF CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS 
 If you are a California resident and have provided personal information to Byronesque, you are entitled by law to request certain information regarding any disclosure that may have been made by Byronesque to third parties of personal information for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, send an email to customerservice@byronesque.com specifying that you seek your “California Customer Choice Privacy Notice.” Please allow thirty (30) days for a response. Byronesque is required to respond to only one request per customer each year, and is not required to respond to requests made by means other than through the above email address.

We will not share your personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

When contacting us, please indicate your name, address, email address and what personal information you do not want us to share with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Please note that there is no charge for controlling the sharing of your personal information or for processing this request.

LINKS 
 You may have the opportunity to follow links on the Site to other websites that may be of interest to you. Byronesque endeavors to only link to reputable organizations. Because other websites may not be hosted or controlled by Byronesque, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of those sites or the content provided thereon. Therefore, the privacy policies with respect to other websites may differ from those applicable to the Site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of each other site. This privacy policy only applies to information collected and maintained by Byronesque.
