1. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
We collect information from you in several different ways on the website. Our primary goal in collecting your personal information is to provide an efficient, meaningful, and customized shopping experience. For example, we may use your personal information to help make the website easier for you to use by not requiring you to enter the same information more than once, to help you find products that match your expressed or demonstrated preferences, and to let you know about new products when they become available. These are just a few examples of how we may use your information.
When you use the website, you may be required to complete a registration process in which we will collect certain personal information such as your name, shipping and billing addresses, email address, phone number and credit card information. This information will be used to complete your shopping transactions, respond to your inquiries and requests, ship your products to you, and notify you of promotions, special offers, new products and similar information we hope will be of interest to you. When you register, you will also consent to receive email correspondence from us. Your submission of personal information to us, whether required or solicited by us or voluntarily provided by you, shall constitute your consent to our collection and storage of such information and use of it as specified herein. You may instruct us to stop sending promotional email correspondence to you at any time by clicking “Unsubscribe” link which appears in every email we send, or by contacting us through the Contact Us page.
Like most websites, we collect statistics to learn how visitors access and use our website. These statistics include the number of hits to our server, the types of browsers used to access our website, page views, and navigational patterns. This type of information helps us track where our visitors come from so that we improve our marketing efforts and determine the most effective ways to communicate with our actual and potential users. We also may employ technology to help us know when emails sent to you have been received and read.
2. RESTRICTIONS ON USE AND SAFEGUARDS
We value and respect your privacy and want to provide you with a pleasurable and hassle-free shopping experience. WE DO NOT SELL, RENT, TRADE, LICENSE OR OTHERWISE DISCLOSE YOUR SPECIFIC PERSONAL INFORMATION OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION TO ANYONE, except:
Like most internet retailers, we use outside service providers to perform specific functions on our behalf and we disclose information to help them perform their services. For example, if your products are being sent to you by mail or by another delivery company (i.e., United Parcel Service or Federal Express), we must disclose your name, shipping address, email and phone number to enable them to communicate with you and deliver your products. Similarly, to complete your purchases and provide effective customer service, we must provide your credit card number to financial services corporations such as credit card processors and issuers. When we submit your credit card number for authorization, we use reasonable, industry-standard safeguards to protect your information.
We may share information with third parties such as marketing consultants and advertising partners that does not directly personally identify you or any user. As examples, this type of information may include the number of daily visitors to our website or a particular web page, or the number of a units sold of a particular piece of jewelry.
The Site encrypts your credit card number and personal information using secure socket layer (SSL) software to provide for secure transmission of information from your PC to our servers. While we use industry-standard physical, electronic and administrative precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. Complete, one-hundred percent failure-proof security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline.
Style Queen does not solicit personal information from children. If any user between the ages of 13 and 18 years old registers and establishes an account, it will be assumed that the user is acting with the permission and under the supervision of a parent or guardian. If we learn that a user is under 13 years old, we will immediately delete any information collected regarding that user.
