Who We Are
Holiday Card Center values individual privacy and we want to give our website visitors the opportunity to know what information we collect about them and how they can limit the use of personally-identifiable information beyond the purposes for which they first provided it. At all times, however, Holiday Card Center reserves the right to disclose information where required by law or to comply with valid legal process (such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order), to protect the company’s rights or property (including without limitation in the event of a transfer of control of Barton Cotton Affinity Group, LLC. or substantially all of its assets), or during emergencies when safety is at risk. Also, this policy only applies to the online practices of the Holiday Card Center of Barton Cotton Affinity Group, LLC, including the collection of personal information at the web sites we operate on behalf of our clients. Different policies may apply to other websites or information that we get offline. Other Internet sites you visit may have their own privacy policies or no policy at all. Other websites might use personal information differently than our policy permits. We strongly encourage you to review the privacy policies of any site before providing any personal information.
Data We Collect and How We Use It
Personally Identifiable Information
We collect your electronic mail ("email") address if you communicate with us by email, as well as other information that you might supply voluntarily. If you order online through our site or a site we operate for a client organization, we ask you for your name, your company name, title, billing and shipping addresses, email address, telephone and fax numbers and whether you want to receive updates on particular topics that may be of interest to you. We will also ask for your credit card number, customer number, or other account number you wish to be charged. We do not give out your payment information to third parties unless it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities, including, but not limited to, delivering a product or service you order.
We may use personally identifiable information we collect to process your order, respond to your email or other inquiry or request, to help improve our website and our services, to customize your experience at our website, or to send updates or notices about our company and the products we offer that we think may be of interest to you. We may also combine this information with other generally or publicly available information to help us identify visitors’ preferences or interests. We may provide information that identifies you to companies that assist us in these activities, such as helping us fulfill your request for a product, service, or information. However, in those circumstances, we have signed agreements with those companies that include provisions protecting the confidentiality of such information, and do not permit these parties to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing such services. From time to time, Holiday Card Center may also share your name and mailing address with our third-party marketing partners so they can send you notices about their products or services. However, we will not rent, sell or trade your email address.
Holiday Card Center's web site is intended for adults. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. However, if the parent or guardian of a child under 13 believes that the child has provided us with personally identifiable information, the parent or guardian of that child should contact us at Customer.Service@holidaycardcenter.org if they want this information deleted from our files. If Holiday Card Center otherwise obtains knowledge that it has personally identifiable information about a child under 13 in its files, we will delete that information from our existing files so that it is not in retrievable form.
