Effective Date April, 2011

 

Glam Girl, Inc. ("we" or "us") recognizes that you care how information about you is used and shared. You do, right? Okay then. We have created this Privacy Policy to inform you of our information collection, use and sharing practices for this Website. Please also review our Terms & Conditions which also govern your use of this Website.

 

Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy apply only to information gathered through this Website and, where applicable, through our Customer Service Department in connection with this Website, and do not necessarily reflect our practices with respect to information gathered through other Websites that we operate or through other off-line means.

 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, you should contact our Customer Service Department.

 

What Information About Me Is Collected and Stored?

We collect and store information that you enter into this Website or that you provide to our Customer Service Department. For example, when you open an account or place an order, we collect and store some or all of the following information that you provide: name, billing address, shipping address, email address, telephone number, credit card number and expiration date. Stop gasping. Everyone does it. This information is used to provide the products and services that you have ordered or requested, to process and ship orders, to send order and shipping confirmations and to provide customer service. This information also may be used for our own marketing and internal business purposes, and to contact you about sales, special offers and new site features, unless you have opted not to receive promotional communications in connection with this Website. And really, we won't call you at home just as you sit down to dinner. Promise.

 

We collect and store certain other information automatically whenever you interact with this Website. For example, we collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain name every time you visit this Website. We also collect information regarding customer traffic patterns and site usage. We don't know what to do with it though. Apparently, this information is used to analyze and improve this Website and to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience. Do you feel fulfilled yet? If not, maybe you should stop reading this boring stuff and get your shop on, instead.

 

Also, like many Websites, we use "cookies", which are totally tasteless. Do not eat them. They are files stored on your computer's hard drive by your browser. Cookies do not contain personally identifiable information, nor do they contain sugar. Cookies help us to identify account holders and to optimize their shopping experience. Cookies also allow us to hold selections in a shopping cart when a user leaves this Website without checking out. Cookies are not used on this Website to store your account information; this information is stored securely on this Website's server. When you log in at this Website with your user name and password, we will assign you a secure session id. The server then passes your information to you through this secure session id. Also, we will use cookies to monitor and maintain information about your use of this Website. Cookies are also used to track the identity of the Website you visited immediately prior to visiting this Website; otherwise, we do not track information about your use of other Websites. Most browsers accept cookies automatically but allow you to disable them. We recommend that you leave cookies "turned on" so that...okay, I'm not even going to touch that joke. We suggest you leave them "on" so that we can offer you a better shopping experience on this Website. We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources, to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to provide product recommendations and special offers that we think will interest you. This is what the big new so-called "Web 2.0 thing is all about. Celebrate the future!

 

Is Information Collected From Children?

Although Freckles + Kitty's website sells kids' clothing and is, arguably, somewhat childish-looking, it is a general audience website and is not specifically directed for use by children. We do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone who is under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you should not provide any Personal Information to us and you should use this Website only with the involvement of a parent or guardian. Our Kitty's Corner is where children's drawings and photos are stored, but those drawings and photos should be vetted and uploaded/submitted by an adult, parent, or legal guardian. 

 

With Whom Do You Share Information?

We do not share with others, or sell or rent to others, any personal information that you provide to us through this Website or through our Customer Service Department, except with your consent or as described in this Privacy Policy. 

 

We engage third parties to perform services in connection with the operation of our business. Examples of these services include payment processing and authorization, fraud protection and credit risk reduction, product customization, order fulfillment and shipping, marketing and promotional material distribution, Website evaluation, data analysis and, where applicable, data cleansing. We provide personal information to these third parties, but we authorize them to use this information only in connection with the services they perform.

 

We may release personal information if we believe in good faith that: the law or legal process requires it; we have received a valid administrative request from a law enforcement agency; or such release is necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of Glam Girl, Inc., or any of our respective affiliates, business partners, customers or others. 

 

We may share non-personal information with our marketing partners, advertisers and others from time to time. Examples of such non-personal information include the number of users who visited this Website during a specific time period or purchased a specific product through this Website. This information generally is shared in an aggregated form. 

 

As with any business, it is possible that as our business develops, we might sell or buy online stores or other assets. We could be millionaires! In such transactions, information about customers often is among the transferred assets. Accordingly, in the event that Glam Girl, Inc., or substantially all of our respective assets, are acquired by a third party, such information may be one of the transferred assets (unless the information was collected under a previous Privacy Policy that did not permit such disclosure). Under such circumstances, Glam Girl, Inc. as the case may be, would to the extent possible require the acquiring party to follow the practices described in this Privacy Policy. 

 

 

What Steps Are Taken To Keep Personal Information Secure? 

We use various security measures, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, to protect personal information that we collect. If you place an order through this Website, you will be asked to set up an account and provide an email address and password. You must provide an appropriate email address and password in order to access account information. In order to help protect your personal information further, you should be careful about providing your password to others. If you wish to cancel a password, or if you become aware of any loss, theft or unauthorized use of a password, please contact our Customer Service Department.

 

How Can I Access, Correct and Update Personal Information? 

You can access, correct and update certain personal information that you have provided to us by clicking on "Update Account" within the "My Account" area of this Website. 

 

Can I Indicate Whether or Not I Want To Receive Promotional Communications?

This Website may contain links to Websites operated by third parties. Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy do not apply to information gathered through these other Websites. We encourage you to be aware of when you leave this Website and to read the privacy policies of each and every Website that you visit. 

 

If you have accessed this Website through a link from certain of our advertising or marketing partners, this Website may include a frame of the applicable advertising or marketing partner. Nevertheless, the information you provide to us through these framed Web pages is collected by us, and our use of this information is governed by this Privacy Policy. 

 

What About Contests and Sweepstakes? 

When we run a contest or sweepstakes relating to this Website, it will be accompanied by a set of rules. The rules for each contest/sweepstakes will specify how the information gathered from you for entry will be used and disclosed. 

 

What About Online Surveys? 

We may from time to time conduct on-line surveys. When you complete an online survey, we may ask for certain information including your age, zip code, shopping habits, email and/or mailing address. This information will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 

 

How Will I Be Informed About Changes Regarding This Privacy Policy?
