for the Susandunn.com website.
The Internet is a powerful tool allowing its users to exchange information freely. As a recipient of information collected on this web site, we (i.e., this web site's operator known as Susan Dunn, Inc.) have policies about how we use the information we collect.
Disclosure About Who We Are
Categories of Information
Information about you can be categorized as (a) personally identifiable information or (b) non-personally identifiable information. "Personally identifiable information" is information that we collect from you such as your name, postal address, telephone number, fax number and email address. "Non-personally identifiable information" is information that we collect from you that does not include your name or any information that would allow us to contact you.
How We Use and Disclose Information
Some of the ways in which we use your personally identifiable information may include using it to fulfill your orders, to provide you with information that you may request, to give you updates about the status of your orders, to notify you if you have won a prize and to customize your web site experience. If, at the point where you give us personally identifiable information, a box is checked indicating that you would like to receive information about special offers and promotions then we will also use such personally identifiable information to send you such information that we believe might be of interest to you. It is important for you to understand that we use contractors (e.g., delivery services) to help us operate our business. We generally require that contractors not disclose personally identifiable information or use it other than as necessary to perform their services for us.
Because we care about your privacy, we will not give your personally identifiable information to other marketers or retailers for them to use to contact you about offers or promotions of their own (other than, of course, in connection with the sale of our business).
As a responsible company, we believe obeying the law is important. Therefore, we may disclose personally identifiable information in order to comply with a subpoena or court order or when we are required to do so by law. We may also disclose personally identifiable information in cooperation with a law enforcement or government request.
It is important for you to understand that the above policies and restrictions do not apply to our use or disclosure of your non-personally identifiable information. We may freely use and disclose non-personally identifiable information for many purposes and on many occasions. Examples of how we use and disclose non-personally identifiable include measuring and analyzing site usage, system administration, improving our site, and providing it to third party consultants, clients, advertisers, vendors and researchers.
How We Collect Information
We collect personally identifiable information from you by "active" means, in other words when you actively give us the information. Examples of this may include when you order products, register for gifts, fill out online site registration forms, enter contests or sweepstakes, request that we send you information, newsletters or catalogs, or respond to our surveys or other requests for visitor responses.
Special Policies for Children Identifying Themselves as Under Age 13
We will not collect any personally identifiable information submitted by visitors to the site who have disclosed to us that they are children under the age of 13.
Collection of Information by Third Parties via Links
Our site contains links to other sites, including, among others, those of advertisers, other third parties and companies whose trademarks may appear on this site. Those other sites may have privacy policies which may be different from ours. Sometimes promotions, contests or sweepstakes advertised on our site might be sponsored by third parties. Visitors using such links or pursuing or entering such contests or sweepstakes should consult the privacy notices associated with those links, promotions, contests or sweepstakes. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online-for example, via message boards or chat rooms-that information can be collected, intercepted and used by people you do not know. Our policies do not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond our control. We take no responsibility for information collected by third parties.
Protecting your order information is important to us. We use the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your online order information. SSL encryption is a method by which information is encrypted while being transmitted over the Internet. To check the security of your connection, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), then SSL is active. You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address should change from "http" to "https." Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you won't be able to connect to the server and therefore won't be able to place an order through an insecure connection. While no method is completely impenetrable, SSL is the state-of-the-art encryption technology used in e-commerce today. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your personal information, we cannot entirely ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
