Costume Gallery ("us," "we" or "our") is committed to protecting the privacy of users ("user", "you" or "your") of our web site, www.costumegallery.net and www.instockdancecostumes.com. This Privacy Statement applies to these web sites and governs data collection and usage at these web sites only. Please read it in its entirety.
Types of Information Collected
We track and collect information about your computer and software when you visit our web site. This information can include: (i) IP address being used to access the web site; (ii) domain server; (iii) type of computer and web browser you are using; (iv) the pages within our web site that you visit and the amount of time you spend on those pages; (v) access dates and times; (vi) referring web sites addresses; and (vii) other non-personally identifiable information about the interaction of your computer with our web site (collectively "Traffic Data"). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you.
In order for you to access certain services that we offer via the web site or otherwise, we may require you to provide us with information that personally identifies you (such as name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number) ("Personal Information"). If you communicate with us by e-mail, or otherwise complete online forms, surveys, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.
We employ cookie technology to store and track information about the users of our web site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user.
Most Internet browsers (such as later versions of Netscape® browser software and Microsoft® Internet Explorer) automatically accept cookies, but users can usually change the settings in their Internet browser to prevent the browser from accepting the cookie or can subsequently remove the cookie by following their Internet browser help file directions. If you choose not to accept cookies, you may not have access to certain functionality on our web site. For example, web site functionality requiring a login will utilize cookies and thus a user who chooses not to accept cookies will not be able to participate in the password-protected Customer Log In portion of our web site.
Uses and Sharing of Information Collected
Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Statement, we will keep your Personal Information private and will not share it with third parties, unless we believe such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with legal process (such as a court order) or other legal requirements of any governmental authority; (b) protect and defend our rights or property; (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Costume Gallery, this web site or the public; (d) protect the interest of users of this web site, other than you, or any other person; or (e) operate or conduct maintenance and repair of our services or equipment, as authorized by law.
We use Personal Information to process any order you may have placed with us at our web site, send you information about our company and services, or to contact you when necessary. We may, from time to time, use your Personal Information to contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique Personal Information is not transferred to the third party.
We use Traffic Data to analyze trends, administer the web site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Occasionally, Costume Gallery partners with or retains other companies to provide specific services on Costume Gallery’s behalf and under the instruction of Costume Gallery, such as answering customer support inquiries, handling credit card processing, or performing statistical analyses of our services. Costume Gallery will only provide those companies the information, including Personal Information, necessary to deliver the services. All such third parties are prohibited from using your Personal Information except to provide these services to Costume Gallery, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your Personal Information.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may transfer, sell or assign information concerning your use of this web site, including without limitation, Personal Information, to third parties, as a result of the sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization or liquidation of Costume Gallery.
If you do not wish to receive information and promotional material from us, you may “opt-out” of receiving these communications by sending us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our web site may contain links to other web sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our web site and to read the privacy policies or statements of third-party web sites. These other web sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. This Privacy Statement applies solely to information collected at our web site.
Security of Personal Information
Costume Gallery makes reasonable efforts to secure your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We secure the Personal Information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Sensitive information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted over the Internet through the use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encrypted protection.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure security on our systems.
User Ability to Access, Update and Correct Information
You may access, correct, update or otherwise change the Personal Information that you previously provided to us at any time by sending us an e-mail at email@example.com.
Lost or Stolen Information
If you are a user to whom a password and user name have been provided by us to access the secure-web site section of the web site, you must promptly notify us if the user name or password provided to you is lost, stolen or used without permission. In such an event, we will cancel that user name or password and update our records accordingly.
Notification of Changes
We may change this Privacy Statement at any time by updating this posting. If at any point we decide to use Personal Information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their Personal Information in this different manner. Unless otherwise authorized, we will use Personal Information in accordance with the Privacy Statement under which the information was collected.
Policies for Individuals Under 13 Years of Age
We are committed to protecting the on-line privacy of children. In accordance with the Children's On-line Privacy Protection Act, we will not knowingly collect any Personal Information from or provide any services to children under the age of 13.
