The Information We Collect

When you visit SIMA Collection you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us and Website use information collected by us as you interact with our Website.

When you register with SIMA Collection, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us.
By using SIMA Collection, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to the United States of America and processed.

Use of Information Obtained by SIMA Collection

When you apply for a SIMA Collection (or “SIMAx”) program or sign up for the newsletter, you add your name, email and city. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding SIMA Collection and other relevant SIMA programs that we think you may find valuable.

SIMA Collection will send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. Generally, you may opt out of such emails by contacting [email protected].

Legal Basis for Handling Information:

The laws in some jurisdictions require organizations to tell you about the legal ground they rely on to use or disclose your personal data. To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds are as follows:

Legitimate interests: In many cases, we handle personal data on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals. This includes:

  • Providing a safe and enjoyable user experience
  • Constituent service
  • Marketing, e.g. sending emails or other communications to let you know about new products, events, and services
  • Protecting our users, personnel, and property
  • Analyzing and improving our websites and services, e.g. collecting information about how you use our services to optimize the design and placement of certain features
  • Managing legal issues

Legal compliance: We need to use and disclose personal data in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations.

Consent: Where required by law, and in some other cases, we handle personal data on the basis of your implied or express consent.

Data Retention

We generally retain personal data for so long as it may be relevant to the purposes identified herein. To dispose of personal data, we may anonymize it, delete it or take other appropriate steps. Data may persist in copies made for backup and mission continuity purposes for additional time.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties

We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information when posting comments, messages, listings or other items, this information may become publicly available.


SIMA Collection may contain links to other websites or be accessed through other websites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by SIMA Collection.

Changing or Removing Information

If you would like to request access to your information, request your information be deleted, or sent to you or a third party, you can unsubscribe from certain emails by clicking the “unsubscribe” link they contain, or contact us at [email protected].


SIMA Collection takes appropriate precautions to protect our users’ information. Your subscription information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services.
Terms of Use, Notices and Revisions

Your use of SIMA Collection, and any disputes arising from it, is subject to this Privacy Policy and all of its dispute resolution provisions including arbitration, limitation on damages and choice of law. We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy at any time. Non-material changes and clarifications will take effect immediately, and material changes will take effect within 30 days of their posting on this site. If we make changes, we will post them and will indicate at the top of this page the policy’s new effective date. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or through notice on our home page. We encourage you to refer to this policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current privacy policy. Unless stated otherwise, our current privacy policy applies to all information that we have about you and your subscription.

Your Data Rights

You can unsubscribe from certain emails by clicking the “unsubscribe” link they contain. You can opt out from certain cookie-related processing by changing the proper settings in your browser. Individuals in the European Economic Area, Canada, Costa Rica and some other jurisdictions outside the United States have certain legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal data about them, to access personal data we hold about them, and to obtain its correction, update, amendment, or deletion in appropriate circumstances. They may also object to our uses or disclosures of personal data, to request a restriction on its processing, or withdraw any consent, though such actions typically will not have retroactive effect. They also will not affect our ability to continue processing data in lawful ways.
