Information Collection and Use
Gretel Home LLC. is the sole owner of the information collected on Gretelhome.com. The information is used entirely and only by us, except in cases where we use third party agents to perform certain functions for us, such as credit card processing, delivering packages, fulfilling orders or analyzing data. In those cases, we provide only the information necessary for the performance of those specific functions. We will not sell, share or rent this information to any other entity for any reason. We use the information you give us to personalize the service to individual needs, to service customer requests, to respond to customer queries and other communications, and to improve our service generally.
Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might be used for any other purpose or go to any other third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
Anyone using the web can enter Gretelhome.com but in order to make purchases from this website, a user must first log in or enter personal information to check out as a 'guest'. During log in, a user is required to give contact information (such as name and email address). Logging in involves creating a username and password, which when entered later, allows access to a personal account, with purchase history and other information. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password.
We request additional information from the user on our order forms. Here a user must provide contact information (like name, billing and shipping addresses) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user. You are given the choice of not having us store this information.
A cookie is a piece of data transferred by us to your hard drive which allows our system to recognize your browser on subsequent visits to our site. This enables you to enter the site without the necessity of logging on. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, he or she may still use our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track each user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We may use a third-party credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies are not authorized to retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We do not sell products for purchase by children although we may sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use Gretelhome.com only with involvement of a parent or guardian.
Our websites may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Gretelhome.com is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
This web site takes precautions to protect our users’s information. When users submit sensitive information via the web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When our log in/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with encryption software. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked (as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just surfing).
If you have any questions about the security at our Web site, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We send registered customers of Gretelhome.com occasional emails with information and updates about our products and events.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data. This can be done online by making corrections to the relevant data in the Customer Account or by emailing us at email@example.com.
