INFORMATION USE 

 

We do not sell or rent information about our customers and all information provided to gentlefawn remains absolutely confidential, except that:

 

We may share aggregate or summary information regarding our customers with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data will never identify you personally.

 

We may share information with companies that provide support services to us (such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment company or web host) or that help us market our products and services. These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose.

 

We will use your personal information to communicate with you about your orders and deliveries, and we may send you a confirmation email when you register/place an order with us. Also, if you submit your email address to register for our newsletter, we use it to deliver the information to you.

 

We may be required to disclose such information in response to subpoenas, court orders, requests from law-enforcement officials, or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law.



PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION 

 

Shopping on the Site is easy, secure and worry-free. We have taken several measures to guarantee that your order and your credit card information are safe and secure. Our servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an advanced encryption technology that works with Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 and above), Netscape Navigator (versions 2.0 and above), and AOL (AOL 3.0 and above).

 

We have made arrangements to ensure that every page which captures or displays customers’ personal information (for example the registration, login, address, and payment pages) transmits the information to the Gentlefawn online store over an SSL-encrypted connection that is established using the official secure certificate that belongs to the online store.

 

SSL is considered the industry standard and is among the leading software available to encrypt online transactions. Your personal information including your name, credit card number and address is encrypted so that it cannot be read as it is transmitted over the Internet. Regardless of these efforts, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, any information you transmit to us is sent at your own risk.

 

We will delete or otherwise destroy your personal information once we determine that retaining it is no longer necessary for legal or business purposes.



REQUESTS FOR CORRECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

The law permits individuals to submit written requests to us to correct errors or omissions in their personal information that is in our care or control. We will:

 

correct the personal information and, if reasonable to do so, send correction notifications to any other organizations to whom we disclosed the incorrect information; or

 

decide not to correct the personal information, but annotate the personal information that a correction was requested but not made.
