What Personal Information About Customers Does Fashionistacats.com Gather?

The information we learn from customers helps us continually improve your experience at Fashionistacats.com. Here are the types of information we gather.

Information You Give Us

We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, improving our stores, and communicating with you.

Automatic Information

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses Fashionistacats.com or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of Fashionistacats.com on other Web sites.

Examples of Information Collected

Information You Give Us

You provide most such information when you search, buy, bid, post, participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate with customer service. For example, you provide information when you search for a product; place an order through Fashionistacats.com or one of our third-party sellers; provide information in Your Account or Your Profile; communicate with us by e-mail, or otherwise; complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form; provide and rate reviews. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address; phone number; content of reviews and e-mails to us; and personal description.

Automatic Information

Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type, version, and time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system, and platform; the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our Web site, including date and time; cookie number; products you viewed or searched for; and the phone number. We may also use browser data such as cookies, Flash cookies (also known as Flash Local Shared Objects), or similar data on certain parts of our Web site for fraud prevention and other purposes. During some visits we may use software tools such as JavaScript to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page.

What About Cookies?

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as by-passing the log in process.

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of Fashionistacats.com's essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Does Fashionistacats.com Share the Information It Receives?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others.

Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control

We may work closely with affiliated businesses. In some cases, such as Marketplace sellers, these businesses sell offerings to you at Fashionistacats.com. In other cases, we provide services, or sell product lines jointly with these businesses. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.

Third-Party Service Providers

We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and links (including paid listings and links). They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Protection of Fashionistacats.com and Others

We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms & Conditions and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Fashionistacats.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

With Your Consent

Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How Secure Is Information About Me?

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to logout when finished using a shared computer.

What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?

Our site may include third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party Web sites.

These third-party Web sites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or "serve") the advertisements that appear on our Web site directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party Web sites are not covered by this Privacy Notice. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices. In addition, the Network Advertising Initiative offers useful information about Internet advertising companies (also called "ad networks" or "network advertisers"), including information about how to opt-out of their information collection.

Which Information Can I Access?

Fashionistacats.com gives you access to an information about your account and your interactions with Fashionistacats.com for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.

What Choices Do I Have?

As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to update Your Profile.

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of Fashionistacats.com's essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Are Children Allowed to Use Fashionistacats.com?

Fashionistacats.com does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you are under a legal age, you may use Fashionistacats.com only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.

Terms & Conditions, Notices, and Revisions

If you choose to visit Fashionistacats.com, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Terms & Conditions, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law of the state of Washington. If you have any concern about privacy at Fashionistacats.com, please contact us (kyokoyabuki@gmail.com) with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it.
