We are Dame Products of 101 North 10th Street, Suite 308, Brooklyn, NY 11249. Our Data Protection Officer is Josh Nalven, contactable via email@example.com.
This notice is to inform you about how we collect and protect any personal information you provide to us, how you can control what personal information we collect from you, and what we do with it. It sets out how we intend to use your information, who we will share it with, and what rights you have about use of your information.
This notice applies however you provide personal information to us — whether you go online to our website (dameproducts.com), engage in research & development activities (via “Dame Labs”), contact us via social media, visit our events, email or chat with us, or enter into promotional contests with us.

In addition to the above, those who have been chosen to participate in market research and product development may be asked to provide the following information:

These lists are not exhaustive and in specific instances, we may need to collect additional data for the purposes set out in this Notice. Some personal data is collected directly, for example when you place an order on our website, or send an email to our Customer Support team. Other personal data is collected indirectly, for example when you browse our websites or undertake online shopping activity. We may also collect personal data from third parties who have your consent to pass your details to us, or from publicly available sources. We may anonymise and aggregate personal data for insight and research, but this will not identify anyone.

Research & Development
We are a humans-first company, and use a great deal of user feedback to develop new products, and make existing ones even better. If you are a part of our Dame Labs community, we will use your information and survey results:
- to contact you about product testing and survey opportunities, and arrange for the delivery and return of product concepts (if applicable);
- to analyze your anonymized feedback to understand what you want in future products, and how we can improve; and
- with your explicit permission, to use quotes from your feedback to develop marketing materials.
To ensure you are kept up to date with the Dame Products, we use personal data for marketing purposes, and may send you emails to update you on the latest offers and events. We may also show you online media communications through external social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, and external digital advertisers.
