1) THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you use the Website, we receive and collect certain information about you. The information that we receive and collect depends on what you do when you visit this Website.
Information You Actively Submit
For most of the browsing on our Website, we neither require nor collect “User Information.” User Information is information that could personally identify you, for example, your name, e-mail address, billing address, shipping address(es), telephone/fax number(s), credit card information, photographs, questions, and any other personally identifying information you choose to submit to the Website. You can browse the Website and take as much time as you want to review our services without having to submit any User Information.
In the following instances, however, we do need you to actively submit User Information – whenever you want to contact AnamBliss via electronic means or website submission forms or when you elect to purchase items from the online Store. We collect any User Information you submit via various webpage submission forms including, but not limited to, when you sign up for e-mail offerings or an online Store account, use our online Contact Us form, use our forward webpage to a friend feature, apply for a job with us, purchase products or services from our online Store, and submit any online question submission forms.
When you send an e-mail to us, you are communicating with us electronically and consent to receive communication from us electronically. We may retain the content of the e-mail, your e-mail address, and our response in order to service your needs and requests. We may use the data that you provide to send you e-mail and for other business purposes, including marketing communications about our products or services that we believe you may find of interest.
If you no longer wish to receive marketing e-mail from AnamBliss or the Website, you may unsubscribe by doing any one of the following actions:
- Send an e-mail with your current information to: firstname.lastname@example.org ; or
- Call us at 617.454.4417.
If you send an e-mail or leave a voicemail, please be sure to include your full name, address, phone number and e-mail address. This will ensure we identify you correctly in our systems and accurately process your request. Please note that opting out of e-mail communications may not opt you out of receiving other hard copy information.
AnamBliss will take appropriate steps to implement your request to opt-out of receiving marketing communications. Please note that due to production, mailing and system timelines, in order to remove you from our marketing lists, it may take up to 10 business days for e-mails. Until that change takes effect, you may still receive marketing communications from us.
Also, please note that even though you may have opted out of receiving marketing communications, you may still receive business-related communications. Please be aware that opting-out of certain third party use may prevent us from providing certain services or products that you request.
Personal Medical Information
We do not require you to provide any personal medical information about yourself to us online, and we ask that you do not share personal medical information that you wish to keep confidential. Information you provide is not protected under confidentiality laws that protect physician-patient communications. Please carefully select what you choose to disclose.
Automatically Collected Information
In addition to any User Information that you choose to submit, some non-personally identifying information is automatically received and sometimes collected from you when you visit the Website. This information may include some or all of the following items: the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, including the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using and the IP address of your Internet Service Provider; the type and version of Internet browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our site, the length of your stay and the specific pages, images, video or forms that you access while visiting the site; the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our website, and if applicable, the search engine that referred you and any search strings or phrases that you entered into the search engine to find this site; and demographic information concerning the country of origin of your computer and the language(s) used by it.
If you are using a mobile application, our servers may collect information about your device name and type, your phone number, your country of origin, and other interactions with our Website and application.
If you use the Website via a mobile device or app, we may collect information about your mobile device, including device ID, model and manufacturer, and location information.
This information does not identify you personally, and we do not combine this information with any Personal Information that you may voluntarily and actively submit to us. We will not use this information to identify you individually, unless we must do so to investigate and/or remedy an issue of Website security, or if we are required to do so for other law enforcement purposes.
Instead, we use this information in the aggregate (combined with similar information collected from our other Website visitors) to help us analyze, maintain, and improve the Website, to monitor the usage of our Website, assess its performance, ensure technological compatibility with your computer, and understand the relative importance of the information provided on our Website. We may also use this data to conduct statistical analyses on visitors’ usage patterns, trends and other aggregated data.
Information Collected via Cookies
Most people do not know that cookies are being placed in their browsers when they visit the Website or most websites because browsers are often set to accept cookies. You can choose to have your browser warn you every time a cookie is being sent to you or you can refuse cookie placements.
Cookies can be set to expire: (1) on a specified date; (2) after a specific period of time; (3) when a transaction has been completed; or (4) when a user turns off his/her Internet browser. A cookie that is erased from memory when a visitor’s Internet browser closes is called a “session” cookie. Cookies that expire based on a time set by the Web server are called “persistent” cookies. These cookies are saved by your browser to your computer’s hard drive.
The Website uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. We use these cookies for analysis of the use of our Website and for marketing purposes.
How to Control Cookies
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to block cookies. Instructions for blocking cookies in your browsers are available at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/. Please be aware that if you choose to block cookies, some advertising preferences that are dependent on cookies may not be able to be respected.
If you accept cookies, you can delete them later. Instructions for deleting cookies in your browsers are also available at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/. If you choose to delete cookies, any settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, will be deleted and may need to be recreated.
Google Analytics with Display Advertising
In addition to Website analysis, we use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. When someone visits a website that has partnered with the Google Display Network, Google stores a cookie to remember their visits. This number uniquely identifies a web browser on a specific computer, not a specific person. Browsers may be associated with a demographic category, such as gender or age range, based on the sites that were visited. Google may also use the content of the page or website or the main topics and themes from the page as well as data from third-party companies to associate interests with a browser’s anonymous cookie, taking into account how often people visit sites of those categories, among other factors. Google may use information that people provide to these partner websites about their gender, age, and other demographic or interest information. Google may use the websites people visit and third-party data to infer this information. For example, if the sites a person visits have a majority of female visitors (based on aggregated survey data on site visitation), we may associate the person’s cookie with the female demographic category. When you visit our Website, Google shares with us this demographic and interest reporting data that is associated with your browser.
We may also use Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online. This service allows third-party vendors, including Google, to show AnamBliss ads on sites across the internet. AnamBliss and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together, to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your visits to the Website.
You may opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the opt-outs offered by Google. You can access more information about these options by clicking here: Google Analytics Opt-Outs.
We will not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with any User Information without your prior express consent.
Internet Based Advertising and Do Not Track Technology
We currently use a variety of third-party services to collect and track this information. Each service has its own policies for handling Do Not Track signals and methods for opting out of the collection of such information for these purposes. For more information on internet based advertising, including options for opting out, the Network Advertising Initiative has created a website, which you can access by clicking here .
We may use a pixel tag, which is a small graphic file that allows AnamBliss to monitor the use of the Website and provide us with information regarding your interaction with the website. These tags may collect the IP address from the device you are using, and the browser type. Pixel tags are also used by our third-party partners to collect information when you visit the Website, and we may use this information to display targeted advertisements.
We may receive email confirmations when you open an email from AnamBliss. This allows us to determine if users are responding favorably to our email communications and to improve those communications.
Other data technologies may be used that collect comparable information for security, fraud detection, and similar purposes, to give AnamBliss information about your use of the Website, and to greater improve our website and service offerings to you.
2) HOW WE USE AND SHARE USER INFORMATION
AnamBliss may use and share your User Information with third parties, including personally identifiable information, without limitation, in the following ways:

3) ACCESS TO AND MANAGING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We believe it is important for you to be able to find out what personally identifiable information you have provided to us through our website. If you have provided us with personally identifiable information, you can contact us to request that we provide you with the personally identifiable information we have in our records about you, including a list of third parties to which we have shared or disclosed personal information as set forth in this policy. We reserve the right to limit the number of times such a request can be made and to charge you for responding to such requests if this process is misused or abused.
We know you want the personally identifiable information we have on record about you to be as complete and accurate as possible. We feel the same way. If you become aware that personally identifiable information or sensitive information you may have provided that we have in our records about you is inaccurate, incomplete, or incompatible with the purposes for which it was provided or subsequently authorized by you, please notify us using the contact information provided below.

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards for this Website to help protect against loss, misuse or unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the personal information you provide on this Website. Unfortunately, no transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure.
E-mail or other forms of electronic communication, including website submission, are not a confidential means of communication. While AnamBliss attempts to prevent unauthorized access to your User Information, or other information you submit, third parties not under our control may attempt to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully.

You have several options when deciding how you can best protect your personally identifiable information. One option is simply not to volunteer it. As stated above, this approach would allow you to still visit our website – although it will prevent you, for example, from taking advantage of some of our Website’s features including those in the automated “Contact Us” or other submission webpage or associated e-mail address.
The Federal Trade Commission’s website, www.ftc.gov, also offers useful information about how to protect personally identifiable information provided to a website.
