Privacy Policy

Registration on or use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy. Like you, we hate spam, and we generally look down upon spam and their enabling counterparts. This is to say: we will never share, rent, or sell your name or email address. That's pretty simple and we'd like to leave it at that but we have to explain some of the info that's collected, and mention that there are rare instances in which sharing your info would be required, like by law or to protect our company.

Privacy Policy

It is our policy not to sell or market our customers' non-public personal information to third parties without your consent. Such information is used solely in the conduct of our business and to provide high-quality services to our customers. We will share your nonpublic personal information with third parties only to the extent we believe it is reasonably necessary to provide our services. In addition, in connection with providing services to you, we may also share your nonpublic personal and personally identifiable information with our affiliates.

Aggregate, Non-personal Information

To manage SarahsStands.com, protect the security of our users and the Web site, and improve service and features, we may collect aggregate and non-personal information about our users’ activities on SarahsStands.com. We and/or our service providers, such as analytics companies, will automatically collect navigational and/or other device-specific information like IP address, browser type, hardware model, and Unique Device Identifier when you use SarahsStands.com. Other parties may also collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use SarahsStands.com. Although we may analyze and aggregate your nonpublic personal information internally for the purposes of compiling statistics, evaluating trends in the marketplace, and evaluating the overall effectiveness of our services, no nonpublic personal information will be shared with third parties, except as provided herein, or used in any promotional materials.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

The rare instances when disclosing users' personal information could occur include: when it is required by law; when disclosure is needed to operate the site or certain services; in order to protect the safety of our users, employees or property; and/or when disclosure is consistent with Sarah’s Stands practices for services that are similarly provided offline. We may share personal information with our parents, partners, affiliates, or other entities for other purposes. We may share your personal information with our operational providers or those persons, companies or agents who provide support for the internal operations of the Web site, such as maintenance and technical services, in order to address any issues with which you may need assistance. In the event that we use any non-affiliated, third-party service provider to assist us in providing services to you and those services require us to disclose any of your nonpublic personal information, we will require the third-party service provider to execute an agreement to protect the confidentiality of the information. During the customer ordering process, certain information is collected, including such items as: Personal Information (Full Name, Address, Phone, E-Mail Address, Age, Birth Date, Gender) We reserve the right to release such information to law enforcement or other governmental officials as we, in our sole and absolute discretion, deem necessary to comply with the law.

Policy Changes

We reserve the right to amend this policy in its sole and absolute discretion. Sometimes this is needed as we add new services, products or features. We will post these changes in this policy. Changes may incur without notice, however, if it is something drastic, users will be notified and have the opportunity to quickly and easily opt out of the list. Any changes to this policy will apply only to that nonpublic personal information collected from you after the date of implementation.
