1. Information Collected
I collect information from you when you leave a comment, subscribe to my newsletter, respond to a survey or participate in a contest. You may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address or other pertinent information. You may, however, visit my site anonymously. If you correspond to me by email, I may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses. The email address you provide may be used to send you information, respond to inquiries and/or other requests or questions.
I may use this data to improve the The Big Blue Debutante website, improve customer service, show you content that I think you might be interested in, administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature or send periodic emails. I may share this information with others, such as advertisers interested in advertising on our Websites, in aggregate, anonymous form, which means that the information will not contain any personally identifiable information about you or any other person.
I have appropriate measures in place to maintain the safety of your personal information when we access it. Occasions will arise when customer information is passed to third party processors but they will only act upon my instructions in order to perform the services required.
Cookies may be used to understand and save your preferences for future visits, keep track of advertisements and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. I may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business. You can delete cookies from your hard drive at any time.
4. Outside Parties
I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. I may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
5. Third party links
I also allow third party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our Web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g. click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.
