Automatically Collected Information
When you access the Website or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from your system by using different types of tracking technology, including server logs. This “automatically collected” information may include Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), a unique device or user ID, version of software installed, system type, browser used, the content and pages that you access on the Website, the dates and times that you visit the Website, documents that you viewed, uploaded or downloaded, and ads that you clicked on, and information from your Facebook account that you make publicly available, which is provided to us by Facebook via the Facebook APIs.

Additionally, This Emporium may collect and, on any page, display the total counts that page has been viewed.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads and collect information when users visit our site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements on our site, other websites and other forms of media about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, check out http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

Aggregate Information
The Website may track the total number of visitors to our Website, the number of visitors to each page of our Website, browser type, IP addresses, and general website behavior such as voting or connecting via social media, and we may analyze this data for trends and statistics in the aggregate, but such information will be maintained, used and disclosed in aggregate form only and it will not contain personally identifiable information. We may use such aggregate information to analyze trends, administer the Website, track users’ movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Disclosure
We may provide your personally identifiable information and the data generated by cookies, web beacons, logs, and the aggregate information to the vendors and service agencies that we may engage to assist us in providing services and advertising to you. Such third party entities may be obligated to use your personally identifiable information to provide the services to us. We will disclose your personally identifiable information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation or in cooperation with any governmental investigation, including upon receipt of what we believe may be a valid subpoena, whether issued by a Court that has jurisdiction over This Emporium or not. (Please note that This Emporium reserves the right to assert that only the Federal District Court of the Central District of California, and the Los Angeles County Superior Court, have jurisdiction, and subpoenas from outside those jurisdictions must be “domesticated,” though we are not obligated to do so.) We will not sell your personally identifiable information to any company or organization, however, we may transfer your personally identifiable information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which This Emporium participates or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of This Emporium’s assets to which this Website relates.

Links to Third Party Sites/Opt-Out for Non-Personal Information Collection for Network Services
We use third-party advertising companies and advertising networks to serve ads to you on our behalf when you visit our Website, as well as to provide augmented website functionality and do data analyses in aggregate. These, and other companies may use information (not including your name, address email address or telephone number, but including your company name and job title gathered from your profile information) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. They may do this by using cookies and web beacons, among other things. (See, e.g., http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_beacons.) Some third parties might use the DoubleClick DART cookie in the ads served on the Website. When users visit the Website and either view or click on an ad, a cookie may be dropped on that end user’s browser. The data gathered from these cookies will be used to help better serve and manage ads on our Website. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting their advertising opt-out page. Platform-A, our advertising partner, may also utilize cookies to present more relevant ads. If you would prefer to opt out, please visit their privacy policy and opt-out page. We may use Google AdSense, and so the privacy policies pertaining to Google AdSense ads are integrated herein by reference. Users are encouraged to read the Google AdSense privacy policies here: http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html, and the DoubleClick privacy policies here: http://www.google.com/doubleclick/privacy/. Although we may attempt to contractually limit what third party advertising companies and networks do, we have no ability to monitor or control what they do. Recently some advertising companies and networks have been sued for allegedly using what are called local shared objects or re-spawning cookies (including by using Adobe® flash cookies). Although we attempt to contractually require that these companies shall always allow the end-user (you) to easily and completely uninstall any means of tracking the end-user without regenerating the means of such tracking, we cannot assure that this will occur and, therefore, you consent to these types of practices. If you would like more information about what many advertising companies and advertising networks do and to know some of your choices about not having this information used by the companies that are member of the Network Advertising Initiative, please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp. We cannot assure that all of our third-party advertising companies and advertising networks are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, or that they comply with the policies of the Network Advertising Initiative.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE SECRECY OF YOUR UNIQUE PASSWORD AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION AT ALL TIMES. WE CANNOT, HOWEVER, ENSURE OR WARRANT THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION YOU TRANSMIT TO US, AND YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. ONCE WE RECEIVE YOUR TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION, WE MAKE COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE EFFORTS TO ENSURE THE SECURITY OF OUR SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT A GUARANTEE THAT SUCH INFORMATION MAY NOT BE ACCESSED, DISCLOSED, ALTERED, OR DESTROYED BY BREACH OF ANY OF OUR PHYSICAL, TECHNICAL, OR MANAGERIAL SAFEGUARDS. IF WE LEARN OF A SECURITY SYSTEMS BREACH, THEN WE MAY ATTEMPT TO NOTIFY YOU ELECTRONICALLY SO THAT YOU CAN TAKE APPROPRIATE PROTECTIVE STEPS.

Notice to European Users
The information you enter on this Website or otherwise provide to This Emporium may be transferred outside of the European Union to the United States of America which does not offer an equivalent level of protection to that required in the European Union.

Article 26 of the European Union’s Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC, 1995 O.J. (L 281) 31) allows for transfer of personal data from the European Union to a third country if the individual has unambiguously given his consent to the transfer of personal information, regardless of the third country’s level of protection. By agreeing to the terms of use and this privacy policy, you consent to the transfer of all such information to the United States of America which may not offer an equivalent level of protection to that required in the European Union and to the processing of that information by This Emporium on its servers located in the United States of America as described in this Privacy Policy.
