  1. Will my personal information be shared?

The Company may share your information to help it improve its website, understand its visitors and their preferences, and to market our products and services.

The Company also may disclose specific information when such disclosure appears necessary to comply with the law, a subpoena, or other litigation process or to protect the interests or safety of its visitors and customers, employees, or others.

We may engage third parties to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet and sometimes on the Site, or to collect and analyze information, such as how customers navigate the Site and which products they browse and purchase, so that we may make improvements to and enhance visitors’ use of the Site. They may collect anonymous information about your visits to the Site and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to our Site and other websites to target advertisements for goods and services to you. These targeted advertisements may appear on our site or on other sites that you visit. No personally identifiable information is collected in this process. If you do not want us or our agents to collect this information, you may opt-out.

  1. What are cookies and how does the Company use them?

The Site uses a browser feature known as a cookie. A cookie is a small text file created by a website that is stored by your browser on your hard drive. Cookies generally come in two forms: session cookies and persistent cookies. We may use both session and persistent cookies on our Site. A session cookie (which expires at the end of your visit) may be used to gather basic information about your visit to our Site, such as the date and time of your visit, the length of your visit, and the pages/images you viewed during your visit. This information allows us to assess (in aggregate form) how our Site is being used and, in turn, improve its contents and functionality. A persistent cookie (which remains on your computer for a longer period of time) may be used to remember the content you previously viewed on our Site. We do not use cookies to collect personal information; however, as explained above, we may use cookies to store - in encrypted form - certain personal information you provided during an earlier visit to our Site.

You have the choice to refuse cookies by turning them off in your Internet browser. However, if you choose not to accept cookies, you may not be able to purchase from the Site.

We may also collect and store information in the form of web logs – i.e., files that record general activity on our Site and gather statistics about your browsing patterns on our Site. The information we collect and store in log files may include (among other things): (i) the type of browser and operating system you use; (ii) your computer’s IP Address; and, (iii) other information about your online visit (e.g., URL you came from to get to our Site, date and time of your visit, and which pages you viewed and for how long). Some of this information may be captured by log files in conjunction with the use of cookies. In addition to using log file information to better understand how our Site is used and to improve its functionality, we may use certain log file information (such as your computer’s IP address) together with personal information (if necessary) to troubleshoot technical problems, help ensure the security of our Site, or prohibit or restrict certain users from accessing our Site.

We may also use web beacons (or clear GIFs) on our Website or include them in an email message we send you. Web beacons (also known as "web bugs") are small strings of code that provide a method of delivering a graphic image on a web page or in an email message for the purpose of transferring data back to us. The information collected via web beacons may include some of the information described in the Log Files section above, as well as information about how a user responds to an email marketing campaign from us (e.g., the time the email is opened, where does the user link to from the email, etc.). We use web beacon information for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to, site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising and email auditing and reporting, and personalization.

Do Not Track

Some web browsers incorporate a Do Not Track (“DNT”) feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked.  At the present time, there are not yet established and universal standards for recognizable DNT signals and therefore, the Site does not recognize DNT.

  1. What steps does the Company take to keep my information secure?

The security of your personal information is very important to us. We have implemented industry-standard measures to ensure your information is processed confidentially, accurately, and securely.

We restrict access to personal information collected about you at our web site to our employees, our Partners' employees, or others who need to know that information to provide services to you or in the course of conducting our normal business operations. While no web site can guarantee security, we maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information collected via the web site. We protect our databases with various physical, technical and procedural measures and we restrict access to your information by unauthorized persons. We also advise all Company employees about their responsibility to protect customer data and we provide them with appropriate guidelines for adhering to our company's business ethics standards and confidentiality policies.

  1. Does the Company protect children’s privacy?

Because we are in the infants’ and childrens’ wear business, we are especially concerned about the safety and security of children. The Site is intended for use by individuals 18 years of age and older. We will not knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that an individual is under the age of 13, and has submitted any information to the Company for any purpose without prior verifiable parental consent, we will delete his or her information from our files.

  1. What if changes are made to this policy?

We reserve the right to make changes to this Policy at any time, including in response to changes in applicable law. If we do make changes, the changes will be posted on this page and we will indicate at the top of this Policy when the changes went into effect. Your continued use of the Site or receipt of benefits from the Site after any such notices will signify your agreement with these changes. We encourage you to come back to our Site and review this Privacy Policy frequently so that you are constantly aware of our most current privacy practices.

  1. How does this policy apply to sites linked with the Company site?

This privacy policy applies only to our Site. In the event the Site contains hypertext links to websites that are not created or maintained by the Company, or that third-party websites link to this Site (in each instance, a "Linked Site"), we will not be responsible for the content, accuracy, relevance, timeliness, or completeness of those Linked Sites. The inclusion of any link to such websites does not imply endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation by the Company of the Linked Sites. We disclaim any liability for Linked Sites. We cannot and do not guarantee the standards, data security, or privacy policy of Linked Sites, nor do we represent or warrant that the contents of any Linked Site are accurate, comply with state or federal law, or respect or comply with intellectual property laws. We are not responsible for web casting or any other form of transmission received from any linked website. Any reliance on the contents of a third party website is done at your own risk, and you assume all responsibilities and consequences resulting from such reliance.

In addition, we maintain a social media presence, such as a Facebook page, an Instagram page and a Twitter feed. You can interact with us through social media, such as by entering our contests, posting content, sharing material from our Site, and using our social media plug-ins. When you interact with us using social media, we may receive information such as your user ID, your profile picture, photos you post, and similar information, which is often determined by your privacy settings at social media sites. We may use the information for the same types of purposes we describe throughout this Privacy Policy. Your use of social media sites is primarily governed by the site operators’ privacy policies and terms of service, and the information you share with us and with others is largely controlled by the privacy settings you have established at those sites.

The information shared for these purposes may include non-identifiable information captured through the use of cookies or other similar web technologies, as described in Section 4 above.
