Privacy Policy

 

Last Updated: September 1st, 2014

 

At June & December, we believe that you have a right to know what information we collect from you, and we want you to understand our commitment to protecting your privacy.  This privacy policy describes our collection, use & disclosure of information practices.  To keep things simple, we stick to this Privacy Policy no matter which of our sites or stores you access, including the sites located at www.junedecember.com and www.etsy.com/shop/junedecember (the “Sites”) as well as temporary pop-up retail stores and tradeshows (the “Stores”).  Together the Stores and Sites are referred to as the Services ("Services").  

 

By using our Services, you agree to the use, disclosure and procedures this Privacy Policy describes.  If you do not agree with any term in this Policy, please do not use this site or submit any personally identifiable information.

 

Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to third party websites ("Third Party Services"), such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram, that we do not own or control, even if you access them through the Services. We try to only work with Third Party Services that share our respect for your privacy, but we cannot take responsibility for their practices, content, or privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third Party Services you access so that you know how they will use and share your information.

 

If you have any questions, please contact us at privacy@junedecember.com

 

 

What Information does June & December Collect?

 

The information we collect from you falls into two categories: personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") and non-personally identifiable information (i.e., information that cannot be used to identify who you are) ("Non-Personal Information"). This Privacy Policy covers both types and will tell you how we might collect and use each.

 

Personal Information we may collect from you includes:

  • your name, username, and email address when voluntarily submitted to us by our visitors
  • information from Third Party Services that you explicitly give us access to
  • your contact information, such as your phone number, social media handle, or email (depending on how you contact us)
  • your credit card information (although we use a third party payment processor, as described below), billing address and shipping address, if you make purchases through our Services
  • survey responses to the extent you include Personal Information

 

We may also collect some of the following Non-Personal Information from you:

  • the name of your internet service provider
  • the IP address of the computer you use to access our Services
  • the type of browser software you are using
  • the operating system you are using
  • the date and time you access our Services
  • the website address, if any, that linked you to our Site
  • the website address, if any, you leave our website and travel to
  • your home page customization preferences
  • search engine search terms and advertising clicks/actions
  • weblogs and other clickstream data
  • survey responses to the extent you do not include Personal Information
  • other non-personally identifiable traffic data

 

Children's Information. We are especially sensitive about children's information. We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13, in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). If you are a parent or legal guardian of a minor child, you may use the Services on behalf of such minor child. We will treat any information that you provide us while using the Services on behalf of your minor child as Personal Information as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy. If you have questions concerning our information practices with respect to children, or if after a transaction, you would like to review, have deleted, or stop the further collection of your child's Personal Information, please email us at privacy@junedecember.com.

 

 

How We Collect Information

 

We may collect your information in the following ways:

 

When You Provide Us With Information to Make a Purchase. We make products we like in hopes you will find something you like, too. If you use our Services to make a purchase, we may request certain Personal Information from you to facilitate the transaction and get you the goods.  We may also collect certain financial information from you, such as your payment method (this may include valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information). We store only a very limited portion of your credit card information, in a manner that is generally permitted by credit card issuers. Our payment processor, that credit card issuers require to have sufficient security, stores and processes your credit card or other payment information using industry-standard security measures. By making a purchase through our Services, you give us consent to use and provide your financial information as we consider necessary to process the transaction.

 

Communications You Initiate with Us.
We do everything possible to make sure you have an amazing shopping experience. If you contact us in person, by phone, email, instant message, social media, or by some other means (either through our Services or through Third Party Services), we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence for later reference (to help improve our service!). When we send you emails, we may track whether you open them to figure out how to deliver more delightful and helpful emails and improve our Services.

 

Third Party Services.
Our customers are active in many different communities, both offline and online, and we like facilitating that wherever we can. Some parts of our Services can be linked up with other accounts you have, such as your Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, or Instagram account ("Third Party Accounts"). In general, the Third Party Accounts used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.  Additionally, if you mention us through your Third Party Account, we may collect information and content related to your comment that is publicly available. If you wish to limit the information available to us, you should be sure to manage the privacy settings of your Third Party Accounts. 

 

Certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.  For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.  In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.  As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

 

Links. When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site.  Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Use.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

 

Information We Automatically Collect.

Like most websites, our Services may incorporate technology such as "pixel tags", "web beacons", and "cookies" that allow us to track the actions of users of our Services. Pixel tags, web beacons and cookies collect Non-Personal Information.

 

Pixel tags or web beacons are tracking devices on websites or in e-mails that can monitor the behavior of the user visiting the website or sending the e-mail.  Pixel tags help us analyze our customers' online behavior and measure the effectiveness of our marketing programs. We work with service providers that help us track, collect, and analyze this information.

 

We use "cookies," which are small data files that are stored on your computer’s hard drive when you visit a website. Cookies enable you to shop on our website and may be used in a variety of ways to enhance or personalize your online browsing and shopping experience.  For example, we may use cookies to enable you to use certain website features, remember the items in your shopping cart, store your preferences, recognize you when you return to our Sites, track your orders, and monitor and maintain information about your use of our Sites. You can set your browser not to accept cookies or to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the opportunity to decide whether or not to accept it.  Doing so may prevent your ability to complete your order online through our secure checkout, and you are welcome to then call (248) 667-8941 Mon – Fri 10AM to 5PM (EST) to place your order.  You can also delete cookies from your hard drive once you leave a website.

 

 

How We Use the Information We Gather

 

We primarily use the information we collect and store to enhance the Services and your experience with June & December. Except if we sell all or a portion of our business, as described below, we do not rent or sell your Personal Information to anyone, period. If we share your Personal Information, we do so only as described below.

 

Internal Use to Provide Services to You.
We may use Personal Information to provide the Services to you. Some ways we may internally use your information include:

 

  • to facilitate the sale and delivery of your purchases
  • to contact you when necessary
  • to respond to your comments or questions
  • to provide you with additional information according to your preferences
  • to generate anonymous statistics to help us improve the customer experience
  • to make the Services easier and more convenient for you (such as by prepopulating forms when you have already provided identical information)
  • to provide recommendations to you to send you information and marketing materials about products available through our Services (There are instances where you will have the opportunity to subscribe to an e-mail list that will send information about our Services to your e-mail address, but this will be done only with your permission and consent.)
  • to train our team members
  • for our other internal business purposes

 

Non-Personal Information.
We may share or disclose aggregated Non-Personal Information on our Site, with service providers, and/or with other persons we conduct business with. These service providers and other persons may also share with us aggregated Non-Personal Information that they have independently developed or acquired. Additionally, we may combine aggregate information from the pixel tags, web beacons and cookies we discussed above with similar data we collect from other visitors to help us improve our Services, but that anonymous information cannot be linked back to you.

 

Opting Out. If you decide you don't want to receive email or other mail from us, you can select the "opt out" provision in our communications to unsubscribe. Unsubscribing will stop you from receiving most types of communication, but it may not apply to emails about orders or transactions you place through the Services or to respond to your specific request, such as password recovery.  To have your name removed from this list, please send email to privacy@junedecember.com. Please provide us with the exact email address you used to register or to place an order with us and we will remove the email and any related Personal Information from our files.

 

Except as we discuss in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your Personal Information with third parties who wish to market other products and services to you. We never want to cause you any hassles, we ALL receive enough spam and junk mail these days and we don’t want to add to it!

 

Agents.

Generally, we will not disclose your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties.  We've figured out ways to do a lot of things on our own, but we haven't quite figured out how to all of it. We may provide your Personal Information to our employees, contractors, agents, service providers and designees ("Agents") to enable them to perform certain services for us exclusively, including:

 

  • payment processing
  • order fulfillment
  • website-related services such as web hosting
  • improvement of website-related services and features
  • maintenance services
  • distribution of advertisements and other marketing materials on our behalf

 

We promise, no surprises—unless we tell you differently, our Agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

 

Business Transfers.
We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that would be transferred. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.

 

Protection of Us and Others.
We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we reasonably believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; cooperate with law enforcement; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of June & December, our employees, our users, or others.

 

With Your Consent.
Except as we've stated above, we will notify you before we share your Personal Information with any third parties, and you will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.

 

 

We are Committed to Making Sure Your Information is Protected

 

We take the protection of your information very seriously. We shop online just like you, and we understand the sensitivity of the information you may give us. Therefore, we take many security measures (physical, electronic and procedural) to help keep your Personal Information safe and make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.  

 

Additionally, we limit access to authorized employees and third parties who have agreed to follow confidentiality obligations we give them. Also, we only allow parties to access your Personal Information for permitted business purposes. 

 

Our Store is hosted on Shopify Inc.  Shopify Inc. provides us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.  Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind an industry leading firewall.  For more insight, you may also want to read Shopify’s Terms of Service here(www.shopify.com/legal/terms) or Shopify’s Privacy Statement here (www.shopify.com/legal/privacy).

 

Payment Security.  If you provide us with your credit card information to complete your purchase, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and transmitted and stored with AES-256 encryption.  SSL technology encrypts your information to protect it from being deciphered by anyone other than June & December.  If you want to double-check for security, when placing your order, you will notice that the “http” in the web address will be replaced by “https”.  Secure pages slow down websites so you will only see this on checkout pages.

 

As a direct payment gateway, Shopify Inc. adheres to the standards set by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.  PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.  Your purchase transaction data is encrypted through the PCI-DSS by Shopify Inc. and is only stored as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

 

Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.  Unfortunately, even though we use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee complete security. Any information that you provide to us is done so entirely at your own risk.

 

 

We Reserve the Right to Update and Revise this Privacy Policy at Any Time.

 

At June & December we’re never done.  We occasionally review this Privacy Policy to make sure it complies with applicable law and conforms to changes in our business. We may need to update this Privacy Policy, and we reserve the right to do so at any time. If we do revise this Privacy Policy, we will update the "Effective Date" at the top of this page so that you can tell if it has changed since your last visit. Please review this Privacy Policy regularly to ensure that you are aware of its terms. Your use of our Services constitutes your acceptance of the terms of the Privacy Policy as amended or revised by us from time to time. 

 

 

What Personal Information can I access?

 

Through your account settings, you may access, and, in some cases, edit or delete the following information you've provided to us:

 

  • name and password
  • mailing address
  • billing address
  • email address

 

The information you can view, update, and delete may change as the Services change.  If you would like to access, correct, amend or delete any personal information we have about you, register a complaint, or simply have any questions about viewing or updating your information, please contact us at privacy@junedecember.com. If you are a California resident, in addition to awesome weather, you also get the ability to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of Personal Information we share with our affiliates and/or third parties for marketing purposes and the contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties (under California Civil Code Sections 1798.83-1798.84). If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to privacy@junedecember.com. We won't even ask you for a bottle of Napa Valley wine in return (but if you send one, we will happily accept).
