What personal information is collected at our web site and how is it used?
1. Information Collected Directly from You and Others through this Site
We collect personal information directly from you to do all the things typically associated with Web sites. Examples of the information we collect include name, address, telephone number, mobile phone number, email address, personal preferences, credit card number, purchase and ordering information, demographical information, responses to survey questions and sizing information.
This information is collected at various places: for instance, when you check out with your online order; subscribe to our blog, and/or newsletters and/or mailing list, and/or email offers, and/or mobile messaging offers, and/or participate in surveys, and/or enter contests or sweepstakes, and/ or interact with special-event and/or program offers.
We collect information about you. When you ("you" meaning as the
users using or uses the site) provide it, we collect information about
those you know. For example, we collect your gift recipient's contact
information to process your gift orders. We use this information to do
things like: (process your online orders, open an online account at your
request, personalize your online experience with content and offers
that are tailored to your interests, provide customer service, whether
it's responding to a request or following up on an order, include you in
surveys and contests, enable you to post your content, such as comments
or images, facilitate networks of online social activity centered around our
products and services, improve our website, improve the manner in which
offers are made on our website, improve purchase decisions of our visitors
and the interactions visitors have with our website, enable you to interact
with third-party content service providers, whether by linking to their sites,
viewing their content within our Web environment, or by viewing our
content within their Web environment and market products and services
for each of our brands--for instance, by adding you to the "Sincerely Sweet
Boutique, LLC" email list or "Sincerely Sweet Boutique, LLC" print-catalog
list when you make an online purchase.
2. Information We Observe or Collect through Technology
0. Navigational Information
When you visit this Web site, we collect navigational information,
such as browser type and version, service-provider identification,
IP address, the site from which you came, and the site to which
you navigate. Navigational information is largely anonymous in the
sense that it doesn't contain your name, address, phone number,
email address or other information that directly identifies you.
However, we may associate this navigational information with your
personal information "if you provide it".
a. Cookies and Clear gifs
To better understand what you do while on our site, we use a
browser feature known as a cookie. A cookie is a small data file
that's stored by your Web browser on your computer. It's used to
do things like see how you navigate our Web site, what you click
on, and remember you and your online purchases when you return.
This helps us improve our site, provide better customer service,
personalize your online experience, and personalize offers to you
based on your unique tastes and purchase history.
We also use clear-gifs (also known as a Web beacon or Web bug)
on our Web site and in our emails. A clear gif is a nearly invisible
pixel-sized graphic image on a Web page, Web-based document or
e-mail message. It helps us do things like view the URL of the page
on which the clear gif appears and the time our Web site or email in
question is viewed. Clear gifs in e-mails help us confirm the receipt
of, and response to, our emails, including those that you forward to
friends and family; and they help deliver a more personalized online
experience. Overall, these technologies may be used to help us
see which of our interactive experiences online users like most–for
example, by keeping track of the number of times a video, widget
or other media is accessed or embedded on social networking
sites; and on which social networking sites it is embedded, based
on inquiries that are sent to our Web site. Cookies and clear gifs
also allow us to associate your online navigational or transactional
information with any personal information you provide (such as
name, address, phone number, survey responses and email
address). We'll associate this information only for our purposes:
to deliver products and services to you; to improve our business;
to transact business; and to market our products and services
through a variety of media like email, mobile advertising, and direct
you put into your shopping bag. That can help us contact you if
your online session is disrupted in mid-purchase, resulting in an
abandoned cart. We can also use this technology to determine
whether you'd be interested in participating in special events, given
your preferences. The end result is a more personalized experience
that's tailored to your needs and tastes.
