All information collected is to serve a business and/or marketing purpose, to learn about our customers and apply what we learn to improving how we serve our customers.
We collect personal information such as your name, email address and other contact information. We might also collect information about your purchases. This information is collected when users register or subscribe for accounts, newsletters or features on the site, make online purchases, enter sweepstakes or contests, complete surveys, post materials such as photos to social media, contribute to a chat room, blog, or other open forum that we may make available on or through the site, submit a comment or question to us using a form or “Contact”, send us an email or in any other way submit personally-identifiable information to us via our site.
In addition, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information, such as IP host address, browser, duration and frequency of visits and other data.

We collect personally-identifiable information only if you choose to share such information with us. Providing any of your personally-identifiable information is your own choice. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products or access certain services, offers or content on our site. Please be aware that if you disclose personally-identifiable information on social media sites, website message boards or chat areas, that information may be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited communications from third parties. Such activities are beyond our control.
We collect personal information about users over time when you use this website. We also have third parties that collect personal information this way. To do this, we use several common tracking tools. Our vendors may also use these tools. These may include browser cookies. We may also use web beacons/pixel tags, flash cookies, and similar technologies.
Here are some of the ways we use tracking tools:
• To understand the activities and behaviors of our consumers and website visitors.
• To recognize new visitors to our websites.
• To recognize past customers.
• To present more personalized content and offers, to improve your website experience, optimize your shopping experience, and provide site and service enhancements.
• To serve you with customized or interest-based advertising. These ads may appear on our website or others you visit (see below for more on interest-based advertising).
• To better understand our customers, website visitors, and their respective interests.
We use all of these tracking technologies to improve our site and the experience of our visitors.

When Do We Share Personally-Identifiable Information and Usage with Others?
We use third parties to host the Site; operate the Site; send emails; analyze data; assist in fulfilling orders and more. We use third party partner companies to provide our e-commerce and to help operate the site and deliver our products and services. Some of our contests, sweepstakes and other offerings that made available on or through the site may be co-sponsored or administered by another company. In general, third-party providers will only collect and use your information to allow them to perform the services that they provide to us. We may share your information with third party e-commerce partners, third-party payment providers (e.g., Visa, MasterCard and American Express), service providers and other third parties that provide products or services for or through the site or for our business (such as site hosting or database hosting companies, address list hosting companies, email service providers, analytics companies, distribution companies, fulfillment companies, wireless device applications and other similar service providers that use such information on our behalf).

We are not responsible for how our co-sponsors may use your information. Third-party service providers may have their own privacy policies and we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand how they handle your personal information.

Analytics / Statistics:
Our Do Not Track Policy:
Some websites have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. We do not currently respond to those signals. If you block cookies, certain features on our sites may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop. Options you select are browser and device specific.
You can opt-out of online behavioral advertising.
The Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising provides consumers with the ability to opt-out of having their online behavior recorded and used for advertising purposes. If you want to opt out, visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. Choices you make are both browser and device-specific.

If you wish to opt out of our correspondence, you may do so by clicking the “Unsubscribe” feature or by email: email@example.com.

Security and protecting your information
Protecting your information is a priority for us. Janet Nelson Kumar has implemented safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personally-identifiable information provided to the site. However, due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that information stored on our system or transmitted on the Internet will be absolutely safe from intrusion by hackers. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. It may be possible for third parties not under the control of Janet Nelson Kumar to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot and do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Any such transmission is done so at your own risk.
If you contact us by email, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third party could view information you send by these methods.
If you create an account on the site with a username and password, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account password, and you shall be responsible for any access and use of the site by you or any person using your password, whether or not use has been authorized by or on behalf of you. It is your sole responsibility to control the dissemination and use of your password, control access to and use of your account, and notify Janet Nelson Kumar when you wish to cancel your account on the site. To the maximum extent permitted by law, (x) we will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this provision and (y) you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Janet Nelson Kumar, its affiliates for any improper, unauthorized or illegal use of your account.
We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of any third party. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personally-identifiable information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we will notify you of that development as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and if we have your email address, we may notify you by email. You consent to our use of email as a means of such notification.
It has become increasingly common for unauthorized individuals purporting to represent a legitimate company, such as a bank or on-line merchant, to send emails to consumers requesting that the consumer provide personal or sensitive information. Sometimes, the domain name of the email address from which the email appears to have been sent, and the domain name of the website requesting such information, appears to be the domain name of a legitimate, trusted company. In reality, such sensitive information is received by an unauthorized individual to be used for purposes of identity theft. This illegal activity is known as “phishing.”
If you receive an email or other correspondence requesting that you provide any sensitive information (including your password for the site or credit/debit card information) via email or to a website or individual that does not seem to be affiliated with the site, or that otherwise seems suspicious to you, please do not disclose such information, and report such request to us by calling 1-212-233-1161 or by emailing our Customer Service Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
