INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Our Website typically collects the following information about you:
(a) information that you provide that personally identifies you, such as when you subscribe to emails, enter giveaways, or leave comments on the Website; and
(b) information that does not personally identify you that we automatically collect when you visit our Website or that you provide to us, such as tracking information collected as you navigate through our site.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Our definition of personally identifiable information includes any information that may be used to specifically identify or contact you, such as your name, mail address, phone number, etc. As a general policy, we do not automatically collect your personally identifiable information when you visit our Website. In certain circumstances, we may request, allow or otherwise provide you with an opportunity to submit your personally identifiable information in connection with a feature, program, promotion or some other aspect of our Website. For instance, you may:
(a) provide your name, mail/shipping address, e-mail address, credit card number and phone number when registering with our Website, using our online store, or in connection with a contest entry;
(b) provide certain demographic information about you (e.g., age, gender, purchase preference, usage frequency, etc.) when participating in a survey, or poll; or
(c) post a product rating and recommendation on our Website.
Whether or not you provide this information is your choice; however, in many instances this type of information is required to participate in the particular activity, realize a benefit we may offer, or gain access to certain content on our Website.
HOW WE USE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
The personally identifiable information you submit to us is generally used to carry out your requests, respond to your inquiries or in other ways naturally associated with the circumstances in which you provide the information. We may also use this information to later contact you for a variety of reasons, such as customer service, providing you with promotional information for our products or those of our subsidiaries or other affiliated companies (“affiliated companies”), or to communicate with you about content or other information you have posted or shared with us via our Website. You may opt-out from receiving promotional information from us or our affiliated companies.
In certain instances we may also share your personally identifiable information with our third party vendors performing functions on our behalf (or on behalf of our affiliated companies) — e.g., vendors that process credit card orders, deliver merchandise, administer our promotions, provide us with marketing or promotional assistance, analyze our data, assist us with customer service, etc. Our vendors agree to use this information, and we share information with them, only to carry out our requests. Further, we may share your personally identifiable information with third parties such as our co-promotional partners and others with whom we have marketing or other relationships.
In addition, we may be required to disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas, warrants, court orders or legal process or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
We and/or our third party service providers automatically obtain non-personal information about you when you access our Website. This information can include, among other things, IP addresses (or some other unique identifier for the particular device you use to access the Internet), the type of browser you are using, the third party website from which your visit originated, the operating system you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider, the search terms you use on our Website, the specific web pages you visit and the duration of your visits.
HOW WE USE NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
In addition, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies, now and hereafter devised, that automatically collect certain non-personal information whenever you visit or interact with our Website. We collect IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report non-personal aggregate information to others, and to track the use of our Website. This information helps to analyze site traffic, understand customer needs and trends, carry out targeted promotional activities, and to improve our services.
It is not our practice to link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable; that is, the visitor’s session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. However, we reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify a visitor when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Website rules or to:
(a) fulfill a government request;
(b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process;
(c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our Website, or other users; or
(d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of our Website’s users or the general public.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Website. These companies may use non-personal information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. We are not responsible for republished content from this blog on other blogs or websites without our permission.
SWEEPSTAKES, CONTESTS, AND PROMOTIONS
We may offer sweepstakes, contests and other promotions through the Website that may require registration. By entering any sweepstakes, contest or promotion, you are agreeing to the official rules that govern that sweepstakes, contest or promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the sweepstakes, contest or promotion to use your name, voice and/or likeness in advertising or marketing associated with the sweepstakes, contest or promotion. If you choose to enter a sweepstakes, contest or promotion, personally identifiable information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such sweepstakes, contest or promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment and as required by law or permitted by the promotion’s official rules, such as on a winners list.
CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT COMPLIANCE
The features, programs, promotions, and other aspects of our Website requiring the submission of personally identifiable information are not intended for children. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 and believe he or she has disclosed personally identifiable information to us, please contact us at styleandcheer (at) gmail (dot) com. A parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 may review and request deletion of such child’s personally identifiable information as well as prohibit the use thereof.
We have implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. However, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information. In the unfortunate event that your “personally identifiable information” (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we may notify you by e-mail (at our sole and absolute discretion) to the last e-mail address you have provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances; provided, however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation. From time to time, we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.
