Customer Information Policy
The Site is intended for audiences 13 years of age and above. All areas on the Appear Designs Site that accept personal information (email address, name, address, gender etc.) from a customer have an age verification field. If the customer is not 13 years of age or older, the information is not accepted or stored by the Site.
A parent or legal guardian who is over the age of 18 may register his or her child as a member of the Appear Designs Kidz Birthday Club. Birthday Club members may receive promotional offers and other information about Appear Designs Kidz at the address provided.
Appear Designs does collect customer information on those users who are 13 years of age or older in an effort to improve our customers' shopping experience. Appear Designs recognizes that it must maintain and use customer information responsibly. The information collected is used to help us respond to customer inquiries, send emails about sales and events, send catalogs and other marketing and promotional materials through the mail, contact contest winners and/or ship and bill orders. The information also helps us in determining what products appeal to our customers so we can better merchandise our site.
Appear Designs collects personal information necessary to process an order, a catalog request, a contest entry or a request to receive promotional emails from the consumer. This information includes name, address, city, state, zipcode, phone number, email address, gender (optional) and date of birth (optional). For those users who have opted to register their personal profile with the Site by setting up an “account”, the above information, including additional “Ship To” addresses, can be reviewed and maintained by the customer by accessing it through the “My Account” link in the top navigation bar of the Site’s pages. For those customers who have not registered a maintainable account on the site, they may contact Appear Designs customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org to have their information updated as needed.
We may use customer information for marketing and promotional purposes. Each promotional email we send comes with a link that enables our customers to unsubscribe or remove themselves from our mailing list. In addition, we may from time to time make customer information available to other carefully screened companies. Categories of companies with which we may share information include other companies that we believe offer products and services that our customers may be interested in, either directly or through companies that market information about potential customers to other suppliers of products or services. If you would like to make sure that we make every effort not to share your email address or other information with third parties, just send an email to email@example.com. Please specify which of the Appear Designs’ brands (Appear Designs, Appear Designs Kidz and/or Shi by Appear Designs) from which you would no longer like to receive messages.
When we offer contests or promotions, or join with other companies to do so, visitors who choose to participate in these contests and promotions may be asked to provide personal information to participate. That information may then be used by us and any company offering the contest or promotions to notify winners or to fulfill promotional obligations. We may use third parties to perform services such as mailing catalogs and other marketing and promotional materials on our behalf. We will supply customer information to those third parties to the extent necessary to enable them to perform the services we have engaged them to provide.
Third Party Integrated Solutions
In addition to the third-party service providers discussed elsewhere in this policy, Appear Designs uses carfully selected third-party solution providers on its website to offer specific functionality that help improve the shopping experience for its customers. As a result, there are occasions where the Site must share customer information with one or more of those providers in order for their software to function as expected and provide our customers with the expected benefit. In addition to the third-party payment and email opt-in services which are made available through the site, Appear Designs currently uses the three third-party providers listed below, each of which has access to some customer information as described. The companies listed have committed to Appear Designs to adhere to our Customer Information Policy and, in some cases, have also listed a link to their own company policy.
Your California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as S.B. 27, allows our California customers to request certain information regarding our disclosures, if any, of personally identifiable information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at either firstname.lastname@example.org include your name and the address to which you would like us to respond. We will attempt to provide you with the requested information within thirty days of receipt.
