Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy
This online privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) addresses how my own muse. ("M.O.M.") collects, safeguards, and uses information you provide. By visiting www.myownmuse.co (the "Site") and providing your information to us, you agree to accept the practices described in this Privacy Policy. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully before sharing any personally identifiable information described below. For clarity, we refer to M.O.M. as "we," "us," or "our" throughout this Privacy Policy.

What information is collected? 
We group the collection of user information into two categories: personal, which is information identifiable to a specific member, and aggregate, which is general demographic information that does not identify any individual member. Personal information may include your name, username, profile picture, date of birth, email address, mailing address, credit card information, phone number, and any other identifying information you may affirmatively choose to provide. You know what information you permissibly provide because you are affirmatively and actively submitting the information. Additionally, we, via Google Analytics, may collect certain technical information such as your Site preferences as well as demographic information such as size and language preferences, age, gender, geographical location, time zone, income and education. M.O.M. does not sell your information to any third-party without consent.

How do we use your information?
We collect personal information to facilitate ideal Site functionality and make services associated with this Site (the "Services") an enhanced customer experience, including billing, shipping and tracking your orders. We may use this information to contact you if there are questions or concerns regarding your order, as well as respond to inquiries or requests made by you. We also use this information for internal purposes, such as studying our customers' preferences and improving customer experience on the Site. We may also use your information to contact you for promotional purposes and provide customer service to you. If you enter into a sweepstakes, contest or similar promotion, we may use the information you provide to administer those activities, email participants, notify winners, and award prizes. By participating in a sweepstakes, contest or similar promotion, you agree to the promotion’s terms and conditions and agree to share the information you submit for the promotion with the sponsors of that promotion. We may combine information about you with information from other sources in order to improve the quality of our Services.

We also receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information, which is collected passively using various technologies, and cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. This Site may use such information and aggregate it with other information for purposes including, but not limited to: tracking the number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with the Services. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve you, we often conduct research on customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the personal and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. We may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non-identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

How is this information shared? 
We share your information only as described in this Privacy Policy. In addition, there are certain operational or legal circumstances in which we may share your personal information with trusted third parties without further notice to you, as set forth hereafter: (a) to improve and tailor your customer experience; (b) to fulfill your orders; (c) iIn the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, your information may be part of the transferred assets; (d) when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of M.O.M., its users, or the public; (e) as required by law, to comply with a judicial proceeding, subpoena or court order, to exercise our rights, or to defend against any claims. 

Cookies and Web Beacons
This Site uses cookies to gather aggregated, non-personally identifiable information in order to help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of this Site users have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies to collect anonymous information about how you use this Site by setting and accessing cookies on your computer. These cookies track information such as how often you visit our Site, what pages you view, and where you go after you leave our Site. The cookies are not connected to your personal information. By accessing or using any part of the Site, you agree to accept and be bound by the cookie policy as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Such information may be shared with trusted third parties but the information will not personally identify you. To the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information. As we develop this Site, we may gather additional information from you through the use of other technologies.

M.O.M does not read or respond to “Do Not Track” browser settings and if used, our Site may continue to collect information in the manner indicated in this Privacy Policy.

Security
The security of users' personal information is important to us. When you provide sensitive personal information (such as a credit card number), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us and to guard against loss, unauthorized access, misuse, disclosure, alteration and destruction, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of such information. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any personal information to us or any other party online. In the event that we learn of a security breach, we may notify you electronically or in writing, to the extent required by law, so you may take appropriate protective steps. If you have any questions about security on our Site, please contact us as indicated below.

Opting Out
We may occasionally send you newsletters and emails regarding announcements, special offers, promotions, contests, features and/or product updates. We may also communicate with you on behalf of third parties about special offers, promotions, features and/or product updates we think may be of interest to you, or you may have opted-in to receive newsletters or special promotions from one of our trusted third party providers. If you do not wish to receive these communications, you may opt-out at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link or by emailing customer service at info@myownmuse.co with the subject line "Opt-Out." Note, however, that as user of the Services you cannot opt-out of some administrative communications that are reasonably necessary to the Services, such as billing or service notifications.
