Angry Little Girls, Inc. recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by users of this web site including recipients of our e-mail newsletters and ecards. We created this policy with a fundamental respect for our customers right to privacy and to guide our relationships with our customers. This Privacy Statement discloses the privacy practices for all products and services provided by Angry Little Girls, Inc.
INFORMATION COLLECTION: ALG, Inc. collects information from our website users, subscribers and other customers. In this section of our Privacy Statement, we describe the type of information we collect and how we use it to provide better services to our customers. During registration, users are required to give their contact information (such as name, e-mail address, mailing address and phone number). For internal purposes, we use this information to communicate with users and provide requested services, and, for our website visitors, to provide a more personalized experience on our sites. We may use aggregate demographic information about our audience for marketing purposes. Many of our products and services are free. For our services that require payment (such as certain events, products and subscriptions), our partners may collect credit card information (such as account name, number and expiration date), which is used for their or our agent's billing purposes only, and is not otherwise shared.
E-mail Newsletters If users wish to subscribe to our e-mail newsletters, we ask for contact information (such as name, e-mail address and, occasionally, demographic information). We use this information in the same manner as we use contact information in the registration and ordering process described above. Recipients of our newsletters can unsubscribe using the instructions listed at the end of the e-mail newsletter.
Interactive Features ALG, Inc. does offer interactive and community features such as discussion boards, webcasts and user profiles. Note that all personal information sent or posted via such features becomes public information for which we are not responsible.
Tell-A-Friend If customers elect to use our referral service for informing a friend about our sites and services, we may ask them for the friend's name and e-mail address. ALG, Inc. will store and use this information to send the friend an invitation. This information may also be used to provide information about our company and related products and services. The friend may contact us as specified in the tell-a-friend message to request that no further communications be sent. Communications with Us We have features where our customers can submit information to us (such as our feedback forms). Where such submissions include requests for service, support or information, we may forward them to our agents, as needed, to best respond to the specific request. In addition, we may retain e-mails and other information sent to us for our internal administrative purposes, and to help us to serve customers better. Please note that letters to the editor and similar submissions may be made public.
In addition to such service and product-essential messages, we offer our customers the option to receive information about our company, related products, services and special deals. Users, however, can choose not to receive these communications from us, as set forth in the "Permission" section below.
WITH WHOM YOUR INFORMATION IS SHARED When we have co-branded, customized, private label, "powered by" or sponsored products and services, or when we join with other parties to provide specific services (however, we do not share credit card information with such third parties), then, subject to the given customers preferences (as described in the Permission section below), we may share (provide and receive) personal information with such third party. In particular, please note that, subject to the given customers preferences (as described in the "Permission" section below), These sponsors will use the information according to their own privacy policies, and we urge participants to read those policies and be aware of their privacy practices before registering.
Other than as set forth above, we do not share personally identifiable information with other companies, apart from those acting as our agents in providing our product(s)/service(s), and which agree to use it only for that purpose and to keep the information secure and confidential.
We will also disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena or other legal obligation, in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property.
PERMISSION Our customers are given the opportunity to choose whether to receive information from our affiliates and us not directly related to the product or service for which they registered (or which they otherwise agreed to receive). Customers also have the opportunity to unsubscribe in the newsletter e-mails sent by us.
In addition, for those customers that are California residents, you may have additional rights, as described in the "Your California Privacy Rights" section below. Please note that we will endeavor to implement your permission requests within a reasonable time, although for a time you may continue to receive mailings, etc., transmitted based on information released prior to the implementation of your request. In addition, please note that even after such request is implemented, you will continue to receive information directly related to the product or service for which you registered (or which you otherwise agreed to receive), so you always are kept informed.
Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
LINKS Our web sites contain links to other sites. ALG, Inc. is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each web site to which we may link that may collect personally identifiable information.
NOTIFICATION and CHANGES If we change our Privacy Statement, we will post those changes on this page so our users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under which circumstances, if any, we disclose it. Users should check this policy frequently to keep abreast of any changes.
