Privacy and Legal Notice Forward

IVAR knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting ivarpack.com, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy and Legal Notice.


Do we use 'cookies'?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We use cookies to:

  • Help remember and process the items in the shopping cart.
  • Understand and save user's preferences for future visits.
  • Keep track of and serve advertisement with a 3rd party.
  • Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third party services that track this information on our behalf.

Personal Information Gathered

The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at ivarpack.com.

We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our store, and communicating with you.


Automatic Information

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses ivarpack.com. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at ivarpack.com if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.


Email Communications

To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from ivarpack.com if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.


Information from Other Sources

We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.


What About Cookies?

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of ivarpack.com’s coolest features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.


Does IVAR Share Information Received?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described in this Private Policy.


Agents

We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.


Promotional Offers

Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of ivarpack.com customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give those businesses your name and address.


Business Transfers

As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that IVAR, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.


Protection of IVAR and Others

We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of ivarpack.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy.


With Your Consent

Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.


How Secure is Information About Me?

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We reveal only five digits of your credit card number when printing an order confirmation. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your account and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer


What Choices Do I Have?

As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of ivarpack.com features. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, you will not be able to use important features if you do not use cookies. The Federal Trade Commission provides useful information about online privacy on its own website.


Children

Ivarpack.com does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell children’s products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use ivarpack.com only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.


Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions

If you choose to visit ivarpack.com, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Policy and our Terms of Use, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the state of California. If you have any concern about privacy at ivarpack.com, please send us a thorough description to support[at]ivarpack.com, and we will try to resolve it.

Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Policy and the Conditions of Use will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.


Legal Disclaimer

The IVAR-LIFT System (formerly known as the IVAR Shelf System) is a patented and trademarked design, protected under US Patent No. 6,474,524.

The IVAR-LIFT System backpack design was created to provide the following two primary benefits: (1) Ideal weight distribution and load stability for enhanced carrying comfort; and (2) Organizational access and compartmentalization among the vertically aligned shelves.

The IVAR-LIFT System does not serve to cure or heal any health — especially back or spine — related injuries or issues. The IVAR-LIFT System design was created with the aim to provide better comfort and organization. Any health issues should be brought to a certified doctor or physician.

Help Me Decide

Which IVAR Backpack is Best for Me?

Differences in Size.

All the current 2017 IVAR backpacks are virtually the same size with the exception of the Urban 20 model. The Urban 20 is 17" tall by 11" wide whereas the other models are approximately 19" tall by 12" to 13" wide. We consider the larger bags "standard day-pack" sized backpacks. The Urban 20 is considered a slightly smaller — yet a great size — backpack.

Which Size is Best for Me? — Size Guide

Our backpacks fit everyone, generally speaking. However, we like to make the following recommendations:

If your height is 5' 7" or taller, we recommend any of the current 2017 IVAR backpack models. Your choice will come down to styling, design, and colors offered — and size. The Urban 20 model is slightly smaller (17" tall by 11" wide) where as the other IVAR models are approximately the same size (19" tall by 12" to 13" wide). If your height is 5' 6" or shorter, we recommend the Urban 20 model. It's our slightly smaller backpack at 17" tall by 11" wide and would fit a body that's 5' 6" or shorter best. For adult women, we recommend the Urban 20 because, generally, it is the most appropriate backpack size for a woman's body. That said, if you don't mind a larger backpack that's 19" tall by 13" wide, one of the other backpack models would also work! For adult men, all the current 2017 IVAR backpacks would fit. As mentioned above, your choice will come down to styling, design, and colors offered — and size.

For smaller children, we recommend the smaller Urban 20 for the reasons expressed above. The Urban 20 fits a smaller body much more appropriately.

Best Choice for Everyday Urban Commuting.

Any of our backpacks would work! Your choice comes down to colors, styles, and size. Please the "Size Guide" above for our recommendations.

Best Choice for Travel.

For travel, you may want more capacity to carry your cargo. As such, we would recommend any of our backpacks. Take in mind that the Urban 20 model is the slightly smaller backpack option, yet still has great capacity. If you are carrying a lot of stuff, we would recommend one of the other models, however.

Best Choice for School or University.

Any of our backpacks would work! Your choice comes down to colors, styles, and size. Please the "Size Guide" above for our recommendations.
