What is Personal Information? 
As used in this Privacy Policy, the term "personal information" means information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us.  

Your Choices 
We respect your right to make choices about the ways we collect, use, and disclose your personal information. This Privacy Policy describes some of your choices. In most cases, however, we will ask you to indicate your choices at the time and on the page where you provide your personal information.  

This Privacy Policy May Change 
We reserve the right to update or modify this Privacy Policy and any Privacy Notice, at any time and without prior notice, by posting the revised version of the Privacy Policy or Privacy Notice on this Site. Theses changes will only apply to the personal information we collect after we have posted the revised Privacy Policy or Privacy Notice on this Site.

Your use of this Site following any such change constitutes your agreement that all personal information collected from or about you through this Site after the revised Privacy Policy is posted will be subject to the terms of the revised Privacy Policy. To alert you to these changes, we will provide a notice at the top of this page for at least 30 days after the new effective date and highlight the changes in the Policy so that you can locate them easily. Unless the change is a minor change (such as a change in our contact information) or a non-substantive change (such as the reformatting of our Privacy Policy), we will also post notices on our home page and/or on the relevant pages of our Site for 30 days after the new effective date to alert you to the change.

From time to time, for example, because of changes in the law or technology or the way we operate our business, we may ask your permission to use the personal information we have collected from you in new or different ways. We will do this by sending you a notice by e-mail or postal mail at the last e-mail or postal address you provided us, asking you to agree to the change. If you do not agree to the change, we may, at our discretion, delete all or some of your personal information from our databases to avoid using your information in ways to which you have not consented.

You may access the current version of this Privacy Policy at any time by clicking on the link marked "Customer Service" at the bottom of each page of this Site.

This Privacy Policy was last revised on February 1, 2006 and is effective as of that date.

What Personal Information Do We Collect on This Site and How Do We Use It? 
We collect the personal information you knowingly and voluntarily provide when you use this Site, for example, the information you provide when you purchase a product, order a gift card, or ask to be added to our mailing list.

We use the personal information you volunteer through this Site (about yourself and others) to provide the information, products and services you request and for any other purpose we identify to you in a specific Privacy Notice. For example, when you provide a shipping address, we use that information to ship the products you have purchased to that address. When you sign up to receive our e-mails, we use your contact information to send you information and offers we believe will be of interest to you.

We also use the personal information you provide (about yourself and others) for other business purposes such as customer service, fraud prevention, and providing you with information and offers we believe may be of interest to you. For example, when you purchase our products, we ask you for your email address. We use your email address to send you information about your order, and we also add your email address to our mailing list. You may ask to have your contact information removed from our mailing list at any time by notifying us in an email.

Finally, we may remove the information that identifies you personally and study the balance of the information we collect through this Site to improve our programs and services, to improve the content, functionality, navigation and usability of this Site, to better understand the needs and interests of our customers and potential customers, and to better market our programs, services and products.

Does Alora Ambiance Use Cookies? 
A cookie is a small text file our Web server offers your browser. We use two types of cookies.

The first cookie is generated automatically by our web software and offered to your browser when you access our site. This cookie contains a randomly generated unique identification number, like an ID tag, that permits us to identify your computer as you move about our Site. This cookie does not identify you personally and expires when you close your browser. Our software generates this cookie so that, if we wished to do so, we could collect statistical information about the ways visitors use our Site, which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page. This type of information (known as "clickstream data") is often collected by web site operators, because it helps them improve the content, functionality and usability of their sites. As of the effective date of this Privacy Policy, we are not collecting this statistical information, but we reserve the right to do so, without notice, in the future.

The second cookie is generated when you place an item in your "shopping bag". This cookie also contains a randomly generated unique identification number, like an ID tag, that tells us which shopping bag belongs to which computer as you and other shoppers move from page to page. All of the information you enter as you shop is recorded on our servers along with this cookie identification number. If you submit your order, our server instructs that the cookie be destroyed. However, your computer's security settings, network communication errors, and other unforeseen circumstances may allow this cookie to persist on your computer until it expires. To learn how we use the information you provide when you purchase products on our Site, please click here. The cookie remains on your computer's hard drive until you delete it or until it expires.

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. You may also delete our cookies as soon as you leave our Site. Although you are not required to accept our cookies when you visit this Site, if you set your browser to reject cookies, you will not be able to purchase products online, because we will be unable to track your shopping bag.

Does Alora Ambiance Share My Personal Information? 
Service Providers: We may share personal information collected through this Site with companies and organizations that perform services on our behalf, for example, companies that provide support services to us (such as credit card processing services, data storage services, and web hosting services) or that help us market our products and services (such as third-party e-mail marketing companies). These third parties are required by contract to use the personal information we share with them only to perform services on our behalf and to treat your personal information as strictly confidential.

Protection of Our Site and Others: We may disclose personal information you provide through this Site when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law (or a court order or subpoena); to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to enforce or apply our Site Terms and Conditions and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property or safety of Alora Ambiance, our users or others; and to protect your vital interests.

Business Transfers: Information submitted to this Site is an asset of Alora Ambiance and will become part of our normal business records. Your personal information may be transferred to another company that has acquired Alora Ambiance or one of our Alora Ambiance databases, for example, as the result of a sale, merger or reorganization. If such a transfer occurs, the acquiring company's use of your personal information will still be subject to this Privacy Policy and the privacy preferences you've expressed to us.

How Does Alora Ambiance Protect Personal Information? 
We take reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information we collect. For example, our Site uses Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) to encrypt your personal credit information, including your credit card number, before it travels over the Internet. SSL technology is the industry standard for secure online transactions. For your protection, we use your full credit card number only to process your transaction; only the last four digits are stored in our permanent records.

Although we use reasonable measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized use or disclosure, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet or stored in our databases.

Links to and from Other Web Sites 
Our Site may offer links to other sites. Other sites have their own policies regarding privacy. If you visit one of these sites, you may want to review the privacy policy on that site. In addition, you may have linked to our Site through another site. For example, in certain cases you may have linked to this Site through banner advertising on another site. In such cases, the site you linked from may collect information from people who click on the banner or link. You may want to refer to the privacy policies on those sites to see how they collect and use this information.  

The Site is not directed nor targeted to children under the age of 13. We do not use the Site to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, do not provide us with any personal information. If we learn that someone under 13 has provided personally identifiable information to this Site, we will use reasonable efforts to remove such information from our databases.  

Governing Law 
This Privacy Policy is part of our Terms and Conditions and, as such, shall be governed under the laws of the State of Minnesota, United States of America without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
