Privacy

TheWeddingMile.com knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting TheWeddingMile.com, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

 

What Personal Information About Customers Does TheWeddingMile.com Gather?

The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at TheWeddingMile.com. Here are the types of information we gather.

 

Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.

 

Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses TheWeddingMile.com or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of TheWeddingMile.com on other Web sites.

 

E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from TheWeddingMile.com if your computer supports such capabilities. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please unsubscribe via your account administration area.

 

What About Cookies?

 

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features we feel may enhance your shopping experience (for example, the storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.)

 

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-ons settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. Cookies are an important part of our checkout process, enabling you to add items to your Shopping Cart, proceed to Checkout, or use any of TheWeddingMile.com products and services that require you to Sign in.

 

Does TheWeddingMile.com Share the Information It Receives?

 

We absolutely do not share your information with parties that are not related to the utility of our site. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries TheWeddingMile.com, controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

 

Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include programming applications, sending email, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

 

Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that TheWeddingMile.com, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.

 

Protection of TheWeddingMile.com and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of TheWeddingMile.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

 

With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

 

How Secure Is Information About Me?

 

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.

 

We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.

 

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

 

What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?

 

Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party Web sites.

 

These third-party Web sites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or "serve") the advertisements that appear on our Web site directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party Web sites are not covered by this Privacy Notice.

 

Although TheWeddingMile.com does not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized advertisement meet their criteria to personalize the ad (for example, users in the northeastern United States who bought a wedding gown).

 

Which Information Can I Access?

 

TheWeddingMile.com gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with TheWeddingMile.com for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.

 

What Choices Do I Have?

 

As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of such site features as Your Account, Favorites Lists, Feedback and Reviews, and our Forums.

 

If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Communication Preferences. (If you do not want to receive Conditions of Use and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Notice, those notices will still govern your use of TheWeddingMile.com, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.)

 

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-ons settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. Cookies are an important part of our checkout process, enabling you to add items to your Shopping Cart, proceed to Checkout, or use any of TheWeddingMile.com products and services that require you to Sign in.
