What is Personal Information?

"Personal Information" means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address and an email address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself. If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information on the Site, we may transfer that information within Angelle + LaFave or to our third-party service providers.

What do we do with your Personal Information?

Angelle + LaFave may collect your Personal Information when you use this Site. This can be accomplished only when you voluntarily submit such information to the Site, e.g., when you purchase a product from the Site, when you subscribe to our email promotions, newsletter, special announcements, or when you order our catalogue, you are supplying us with your Personal Information. We use this information to communicate with you regarding your account, including your billing information, to send you our newsletter and announcements, to post your journal entries or blogs, to display content and products that we think may be of interest to you, to personalize your online experience and to improve the quality of the Content that we provide to you on the Site. From time to time, we may share such information with our business partners or affiliates, who might also wish to offer their products or services to you. Whenever we request that you provide Personal Information to us, we will give you the opportunity to "opt out" of receiving future communications from us or others. By providing such Personal Information to Angelle + LaFave, you agree that, unless you expressly opt out of receiving such information, we may use your Personal Information to fulfill the activity you signed up for, such as purchasing a product, sending you our catalogue, and contacting you with updates regarding the Site. Whether or not you provide such information is completely your own choice. You are not obligated to answer any question that is presented to you. Please note that if you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services that involve our interaction with you. Angelle + LaFave does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent. However, Angelle + LaFave will disclose your Personal Information when required by law or court order.

If you have provided Personal Information, but later you object to the use that is being made of that information (for example, you no longer wish to receive promotional or marketing information about products, services, and offerings from Angelle + LaFave or any third parties), you can request that we stop using that information. In order to unsubscribe from email promotions, special announcements or our newsletters, simply follow our instructions included in the mailing or on our Site. Your request will be processed as soon as possible. Please bear in mind that cessation of use of your Personal Information may result in your being unable to continue to access some relevant services, offers or Content.

How do we protect children?

We take special care to protect the safety and privacy of children. Our site is a general audience site. Nevertheless, we do not collect or solicit Personal Information about users under age 13. Children under age 13 should always ask their parents or guardians for permission before providing any Personal Information to anyone online. We urge parents and guardians to participate in your children’s online activities and to use parental control or other internet filtering technology to supervise your children’s access to the internet.

Do we use cookies and tracking technologies?

The Site uses "cookies" and other tracking technologies, such as pixel tags and web beacons. A cookie is a small amount of data sent to your browser from an internet server and stored in your computer. Generally, we use cookies to remind us of who you are, to tailor our products and services to suit your personal interests, to estimate our audience size, to allow us to better understand how users use the Site, to track your order status and to monitor your account and billing, and/or to analyze your visiting patterns. You can set your browser to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it or to block cookies.

Tracking technologies, like cookies and pixel tags, may record information such as Internet domain and host names, Internet protocol addresses; browser software and operating system types; click-stream patterns; and dates and times that the Site is accessed. These tracking technologies allow us to improve the Site and your Site experience. We may also use these tracking technologies to analyze information that does not contain Personal Information for trends and statistics.

What type of security do we use?

Angelle + LaFave understands the utmost importance of protecting the security of the Personal Information that you share with us. We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your Personal Information. Your Personal Information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to such systems. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit information supplied by users is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only accessed as stated above. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from the Site, and you do so at your own risk.

Does this policy apply to third party sites?

The privacy policies for sites and organizations operated and maintained by third parties may be different from our Privacy Policy. You should always read the privacy policy for a linked site or organization before disclosing any Personal Information on such site or in exchange for any product or service.
