1. INFORMATION/DATA WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
We collect data, including Personal Information, about our customers, members, visitors or users in two ways: (1) automatically from all visitors to the Site and from all individuals that use the Services (“Passive Data Collection”) and (2) directly from you, when you voluntarily submit information to us (“User-Submitted Information”). Our primary purpose in collecting Personal Information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. We only collect Personal Information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
a. Passive Data Collection
We automatically track certain information based upon your use of the Site.
Like most websites, we automatically receive and record certain information about our users’ behavior on our Site and use of our Services. Our servers automatically gather technical information about our Site traffic and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to do internal research on our users behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community.
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s device for record-keeping or tracking purposes.
We use the following categories of cookies on the Site and Mobile Site:
- Functional cookies (e.g., to determine the device you use to access the Site and format the Site accordingly, cookies necessary to select and purchase a product).
- Statistics cookies, which enable us to understand better how you interact with the Site and Services by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
- Marketing cookies used to display ads that are more relevant to you.
Cookies help us enhance your experience by speeding your navigation through the Services, recognizing you, and tracking your usage of the Site and Services.
You may remove certain cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s "help" menu. You may also configure your browser to prevent cookies from being set on your computer; however, if you reject all cookies, your ability to use the Site and Services may be limited and you may not be able to use certain features of the Site.
We also employ a software technology called clear gifs (also referred to as web beacon) that help manage content on the Site by tracking what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of users.
We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to know which emails recipients have opened. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.

c. “Do Not Track” or “Opt-out” options
California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014) provides that California residents are entitled to know how we respond to “Do Not Track” browser settings. Our Site is not at this time configured to read or respond to “do not track” settings or signals in your browser headings, which vary by browser provider, because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created. In lieu of a browser-based opt-out solution, you can utilize the Network Advertising Initiative approved methods for placement of “opt-out” cookies described here. Our Site and those of our third-party advertisers or other vendors are configured to read and honor these opt-out cookies, so long as they are present on your computer. Note that if you delete all cookies, you will need to reset your opt-out cookies for them to be read and honored. Specific instructions are available here. However, please be aware that we do not control these opt-out processes.

7. SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. Adore Me uses reasonable security measures to protect against the loss, unauthorized access, misuse, alteration and destruction of Personal Information under our control, both during the transmission and once we receive it. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of firewalls and encryption. Our Site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your Personal Information, including Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) protection for all financial transactions conducted through our Site, our App and our Mobile Site. We also take several steps to protect the physical storage of your personal information in our facilities, including the storage of servers in a secure physical environment, behind a locked cage and an electronic firewall. It is your responsibility to make sure that your Personal Information is accurate and that your password(s) and account registration information are secure and not shared with third-parties. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of Personal Information, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information. To minimize the risk to you, we keep Personal Information no longer than necessary for legitimate business purposes or as required by law. As part of securing Personal Information stored on our servers, we restrict access to Personal Information to Adore Me employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the Services. These individuals are bound by strict confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations. If a security systems breach occurs and Personal Information is compromised, we may post a notice on our homepage (www.adoreme.com) or elsewhere on the Site and take any other appropriate step. If your Personal Information is impacted, we may contact you individually, in compliance with applicable laws.
8. CHANGES OF OWNERSHIP
