What Personal Information About Users Does MyEmporium.com Gather?
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Website or provide us in any other form. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features or promotional offerings. We use the information that you provide us for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future browsing for you, improving our site, and communicating with you if you approve and opt-in.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses MyEmporium.com or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of MyEmporium.com on other Web sites.
E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more interesting and beneficial to you, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from MyEmporium.com if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our user list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our users. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please utilize our Administration page to adjust your preferences or opt out.
Mobile: When you use your mobile to browse or purchase from our website, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as advertising or promoting special sale items in your location or other personalized content that may be beneficial to you. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services if you choose not to allow this.
Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
Does MyEmporium.com Share Information it Receives?
Information about our users is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We only share user information within our own business organization for the benefits as described above.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with our affiliated businesses. In some cases, we may include offerings from these businesses on MyEmporium.com and we share user information related to those offerings with that business in order to improve our customer experience.
Agents and Website Engineering Support: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf which includes improving website functionality, catalog expansion, sending e-mails, removing repetitive information from user lists, analyzing data, and providing marketing assistance. They may have restricted access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but should this be necessary, they may not use it for other purposes.
Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of MyEmporium.com If you do not want to receive such offers, please use our Administration page to adjust your preferences.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy additional services, business units or synergistic websites. In such transactions, user information generally is transferred along with the rest of the service or business unit. Also, in the event that MyEmporium.com or a substantial percentage of its assets are acquired by another organization, then it is only natural that user information will be included in the transaction.
With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will always receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
Third-Party Advertisers and Affiliates?
Our site may include third-party advertising and affiliate links to other websites in which case we do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party websites.
MyEmporium.com may display personalized third-party advertising based on personal information about users, such as information you submit to us about products you may have bought and enjoyed (should you choose to provide feedback on these). MyEmporium.com does not provide any personal information to advertisers or ad-serving companies who may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized advertisement meet their criteria to personalize the ad where for example a user may have purchased a set of similar products relating to the ad. If you do not want us to use personal information that we gather to allow third parties to personalize advertisements we display to you, please adjust your preferences on our Administration page.
How Secure Is My Information?
If you use our subscription service, we work to protect the security of your subscription information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. For example, be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer in another environment.
What are My Choices and What Access can I Change?
As described above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to take advantage of MyEmporium.com offers and special promotions.
You can add or update certain information, such as your e-mail or shipping address, and when you update your information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our administration and requisite Accounting Records.
