POLICY CHANGES 

This Privacy Policy may be revised periodically, and we will post any new or revised policies on this Site. We recommend that you carefully read our Privacy Policy whenever you visit our Site. Brides Across America, Inc. (501c3) will use your personally identifiable information in a manner that is consistent with the Privacy Policy in effect at the time you submitted the information, unless you consent to the new or revised policy. 

INFORMATION WE COLLECT 

Other than simply browsing our website, there are a variety of other ways information may be collected from you as you use our website: 

  • Making an online donation or purchase. 
  • Registering for an event 

Personally Identifiable Information 

Personally identifiable information is information that can be used to identify you personally, and it may include your name, e-mail address, and street address.  We may collect this information in one or a variety of ways, including: when you purchase products; when you use various interactive tools and services; when you participate in surveys, sweepstakes or contests or respond to questionnaires and the like; when you make submissions to us, such as a testimonial; when you participate in any special offers or coupons being offered; when you request information from us, including general or product inquiries; when you contact us.  Please note that in this situation the e-mail addresses you supply to us will not be used to send you other e-mail communications unless disclosed at the time you provide the information. You can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the Site's features, such the interactive content provided on this Site. If you provide us with your personally identifiable information you are consenting to our use and disclosure of such information consistent with this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use. We may also receive information about you from other sources. For example, we may collect information about you in connection with a promotion offered on a third-party website. We may combine the information we receive from those other sources with information that we collect through this Site. In those cases, we will apply this Privacy Policy to any personally identifiable information that we receive. You are responsible for the accuracy of your personally identifiable information. You submit the information; Brides Across America, Inc. retains it as received. When you update or correct your personally identifiable information, such updated and corrected information is also retained by Brides Across America, Inc. as received. 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information 

We also collect non-personally identifiable information from you through the use of technology, which may include "cookies" and pixel tags (or clear "gifs"). Because of the nature of such technology, it may not be apparent to you that such non-personally identifiable information is being collected. For example, our web server will typically collect the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the lengths of their stays, browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting the Site, and IP addresses. 

IP Addresses 

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to you whenever you access the Internet and is often associated with the place where you enter the Internet like your ISP (Internet Service Provider), your company, or your university. This IP address may be the same each time you access the Internet or it may change. We may associate your IP address with the personally identifiable information you provide. In addition, we may use your IP address to identify you in cooperation with internet service providers or law enforcement at their request or when we feel necessary to protect the site or the public. 

Cookies; Pixel Tags, and Similar Technologies 

"Cookies" are pieces of information that a web site sends to your computer and puts on your computer's hard drive while you are viewing the web site. "Cookies" tell us how often someone visits our Site and the activities they conduct while on our Site (such as the places you visited, etc.). "Cookies" can also be used to store personal preferences for your convenience and to track user trends and patterns. The information collected by "cookies" can help us better understand and improve areas of this Site and our products that our users find valuable. Cookies alone do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information. Nevertheless, once you choose to provide us with personally identifiable information, we may combine it with information collected by the cookie. Your browser software can be set to reject all "cookies" or to warn you each time a cookie is being sent. You do this through your browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to reject "cookies" or receive warnings about "cookies." If you reject our "cookies," some of our Site's functionality may not work properly. 

The Site or our e-mail messages may also use pixel tags, which are also called clear "gifs" (or similar technologies as they become available), which are small graphic images that allow the party that set the pixel tag to monitor and collect certain information about the viewer of a web page, web-based document or e-mail message, such as the type of browser requesting the pixel tag, the IP address of the computer that the pixel tag is sent to and the time the pixel tag was viewed. We use the information collected by pixel tags for a variety of internal purposes, such as targeting future advertising campaigns, upgrading visitor information used in reporting statistics, and to count how many e-mail messages that we sent were actually read. We may combine the information we collect in this way with your personally identifiable information. Third-party advertisers or content providers on this Site may also set their own "cookies" or pixel tags. Brides Across America, Inc. does not control these third parties' use of these technologies or how they manage the information they gather through them. 

Embedded Code 

We use Google Analytics, which tracks IP addresses and codes embedded in our Site and gathers non-personally identifiable information about Site usage and movement. This data is then analyzed and used for improving user experience and promoting our products. You should refer to their Privacy Policy to learn how they collect and use information.

For example, we may use such information to send you e-mail updates and newsletters about our products, to offer you other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you, including e-mails, or to send you e-mail promotions and special offers from us, our advertisers, third-party business partners, or other third parties.
