The Information We Collect
Meadowbrook Gifts collects two types of information during your visits to our Site. First, we collect non-personally identifiable information. When visitors come to our Site, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages of the Site were visited, the order in which they were visited and which links were "clicked". Collecting such information involves logging the IP addresses, operating system and browser software used by each visitor to the Site. Although such information is not personally identifiable, it may be possible to determine from an IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity. We also use “cookies” and other tracking technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information regarding you. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser. Cookies make it possible for us to recognize your browser when you visit our Site. By doing this, we can personalize your return visits and save you time during checkout. Your browser must be set to accept cookies in order for you to enjoy the benefits of being a registered user of the Site. Second, we collect personally identifiable information. In general, our Site uses an order form, a registration form and a catalog request form so that you can request information, products and services from us. These forms require that you provide us with personally identifiable information (such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, and credit card number). Further, where you use the Site to purchase a product or service as a gift or use our gift reminder service, we will collect from you personally identifiable information regarding the gift recipient or potential gift recipient.
Non-personally identifiable information
Meadowbrook Gifts uses non-personally identifiable information, such as your IP address and the pages that you visit on our Site, to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our Site and improve Site-related services and features. Your IP address and other non-personally identifiable information also may be used to gather broad demographic information and to recognize customer traffic patterns and Site usage trends. This information aids us in merchandising and in developing the design and layout of the Site.
Personally identifiable information
Meadowbrook Gift's uses personally identifiable information collected from you to complete transactions initiated by you (such as the sale and delivery of products and services). Your personally identifiable information is also used to get in touch with you when necessary. We may also use personally identifiable information to contact you to make sure you are satisfied with our goods and services or to find out how we can serve you better. Further, we may use personally identifiable information to conduct in-depth marketing research regarding our customers and potential customers. Financial information (credit card numbers, credit card expiration dates, billing address, and so forth) is used to bill you for products and services. You may, from time to time, receive information from us regarding new features, new products and services and special offers we think you'll find valuable. Also, while we won't share your email address with other companies, we may rent, sell or exchange your mailing address and information about your transactions with businesses that we believe to be reputable and that can provide you with offers and information that we think will be of interest to you. If you'd like to opt out of receiving future mailings from Meadowbrook Gifts, or if you would like to opt out of Meadowbrook Gifts providing your mailing address to third parties, please follow the procedure outlined in the Choice/Opt-out section below.
As noted above, we collect personally identifiable information regarding gift recipients and people to whom you may wish to give gifts in the future. This is done in order to accommodate proper gift delivery to such recipients and remind you of upcoming gift-giving occasions. We do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information that you provide to us regarding such persons, but gift recipients may, from time to time, receive offers from us regarding new features, new products and services and special offers we think they will find of interest. Also we may send marketing offers to gift recipients on behalf of ourselves and our business partners. In connection with such offers, we allow gift recipients to opt out of receiving future marketing-related mailings from us.
We do not disclose an individual customer's personally identifiable information to third parties for third-party direct marketing purposes if we have received and processed a request from that customer not to have his or her personal information shared for this purpose. You may submit this type of opt-out request by email to email@example.com.
In addition, we also allow you to decide whether you want to receive further marketing information from us. If you do not want Meadowbrook Gifts to send to you announcements or special offers by email, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Remove" in the subject line.
