Privacy

Earl Jean (“we,” “us” or “Earl Jean” is committed to protecting any personal information that you provide to us through web sites owned and operated by Earl Jean, including http://www.EarlJean.com (the “Web Site”). We believe it is important for you to know how we protect your personal information to deliver you the best user experience possible. This Privacy Policy pertains to information that is collected online, unless otherwise noted herein.

BY USING THE WEB SITE, YOU CONSENT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND TO OUR PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES STATED BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE WEB SITE.

I. Information We Collect

We collect two types of information about you when you visit our Web Site: personally identifiable information and non-personal, aggregate information (such as information regarding the pages on our Site that you have visited and your IP address).

(A) Personally Identifiable Information

“Personally Identifiable Information” is information that identifies you personally, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, or company name. We collect and store the personal information that you have provided to us. Here are some examples of the ways in which we may collect your personal information on the Web Site:

  • When you register on the Web Site, you will be required to give some personal information to generate your account, such as your first and last name and email address.
  • We may collect your email address, first and last name, address and zip code if you register for an event on the Site.
  • We may collect your email address if you sign up for an online newsletter.
  • We may collect your email address if you contact us with a question.

The above list provides an example of the personal information that may be collected by Earl Jean. From time to time, we may collect personal information from you in other ways that are not described above. If you do not want us to collect your personal information, please do not provide it to us. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the personally identifiable information that you submit to Earl Jean. Inaccurate information will affect the information you receive when using our Site and tools and our ability to contact you as described in this Privacy Policy.

(B) Non-Personally Identifiable Information

“Non-Personally Identifiable Information” does NOT identify you personally. For example, we may conduct research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us from our server log files or from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve you. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis.

We also may collect non-personally identifiable information from you in order to customize your experience, fulfill your requests for information, and improve our services. We may provide this non-personally identifiable information to third parties. For example, we might inform third parties about the number of users of our Web Site and the activities they conduct while on the Web Site. We also may provide trusted partners with general information regarding our users and visitors.

Finally, Earl Jean may combine any public information you provide in any of the public areas on the Web Site with non-personally identifiable information to create aggregate data. This information may also be disclosed to third parties. Aggregate data does not contain any information that could be used to contact you or identify you personally.
