Smitten on Paper Privacy Policy

We understand that your privacy is important to you.  Please read this Privacy Policy to learn how we collect and use any personal information about you. Your accessing and continued use of our site signifies your explicit consent to these terms and conditions of our Privacy Policy.

Registration

Registration is required prior to placing any orders on our site. Registration may also be required to use certain interactive features, such as customizing designs, uploading images, saving works-in-progress and marking designs as “favorites”. Certain personal information may be required during the registration process. We may use that information, including your email address and mailing address, to contact you regarding products and services on our site for which you have expressed interest.

We send all newly registered members a confirmation email to verify registration. Registered members will also receive necessary transactional emails related to their account.

The nature of services provided requires customers to provide personal information including photographs, addresses, contact information, and/or dates of personal events. This information is only available to our registered user and Smitten on Paper employees, contractors, printing partners and other designees. The customer may choose to allow other people to view their saved designs or orders-in-progress. Your personal information is not publicly available. 

Information Collected

We collect personal information when you register with our website, when you place an order, when you contact us, and when you use any of our products or services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. In order to create a member account, you will need to provide your name, email address, phone number and mailing address. When you place an order, you will also need to provide billing information. Once you register and log in to our site, you are no longer anonymous to us.

Children's Information

Our site is not targeted to children, and we will not knowingly collect personal information from children without obtaining prior verifiable parental consent. Customers and other users may willingly provide information about children during the customization or ordering process. If we are informed that a registered user is under the age of 13 and has registered without prior, verifiable parental or consent, we will remove their personal information from our records.

Like most websites, Smitten on Paper uses cookies to collect visitor information. A cookie is a small file containing a unique identifier that we transfer to your computer through your web browser. Cookies make it possible for us to store contents of your shopping cart until you are ready to check out, and to recognize your browser when you visit. By doing this, we can personalize your visits and save you time during checkout. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. If you set your browser to reject cookies, you will not be able to enjoy the benefits of being a registered user.

Use of Information

We use your personal information to fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our website and services, customize advertising and content you see, and to contact you for service or marketing related purposes. We use anonymous information, such as web pages viewed, to analyze trends, provide a better website experience and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Any information you contribute to public areas of our website, including information about yourself, product reviews, and any other suggestions or comments, is publicity available, can be collected and used by others, and may appear on third-party sites. Once you have posted such information, you will not be able to edit or delete such information.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Smitten on Paper will not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide products or services that you have requested, or unless we have otherwise obtained your permission. We may share personal information as needed with trusted contractors, vendors and partners who work with or on behalf of Smitten on Paper under confidentiality agreements. These third parties do not have any independent right to share this information.

We may share personal information in order to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We may also share personal information when we believe it necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of our Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law. We may transfer information about you if we are acquired by, reorganized or merged with another company. In that event, we will notify active registered users if there is a need to change this Privacy Policy.

Security

We use a secure server (SSL) to encrypt all of your credit card and payment information, and we have other safeguards in place to protect the security and confidentiality of the personal information we have collected.
