Information Collected

In general, you can browse our web site without disclosing any information about yourself. We may collect non-personal information automatically through the use of 'cookies', a standard feature of browser software used by most web sites. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer's hard drive. This allows us to tailor the Stampin' Up! web site to your specific interests and preferences. In general, cookies do not contain any personally-identifiable information unless you specifically supply that information. We use cookies to store information such as temporary session identification numbers and your Stampin' Up! account number, if you have established an account. If you want to disable these cookies, most Internet browsers will allow you to delete cookies from your computer hard drive, prevent them from being stored, or signal a warning before a cookie is stored. You should refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.

We may also collect anonymous technical and navigational information to help us provide better customer service. The information collected may include the domains from which people visit, computer browser type, operating system type, pages visited, and average time spent on our web sites. This information may be used, for example, to alert you to software compatibility issues, resolve technical or service problems, and improve our web site design and functionality.

Stampin' Up! will not collect or retain any personal information about you (that is, your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address) unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you register for an account, online or via our help desk, we will ask you for personal information, including your name, address, e-mail address, and phone number. When you make a purchase, we will also ask for your credit card or other payment information, as well as billing and shipping information. This personal information will be stored in your personal profile and protected with a valid user name and password chosen by you. We will send out confirmation e-mails whenever you register or make a purchase to inform you that we received your personal information or to confirm your purchase. Registering for an account with us is optional. If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use the Stampin' Up! web site.

Our Use of Information

As explained above, we use the information we collect to enhance your overall experience while visiting our online areas and to assist you in placing an order. We retain information about your previous purchases of Stampin' Up! products in order to customise our web site for your future visits and we may use your e-mail address to send you updates about new products, promotions, and other items of interest. When we collect personal data from you in connection with a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in an anonymous format and combine it with other anonymous information. This anonymous information is used and analysed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns.

Stampin' Up! is a direct sales organization that distributes products through a network of demonstrators. When placing an order through a demonstrator, personal information to process your order will be shared with your demonstrator. Stampin' Up! provides confidential reports containing customer information to the demonstrator so they may offer further assistance to the customer, to preserve the integrity of our compensation plan, and to help the demonstrator manage their business. All demonstrators must abide by this Privacy Policy and must not share confidential information except in connection with their Stampin' Up! businesses.

We do not collect or use personal information for any purpose outside of customer service, web site administration, online shopping, and company communications. Stampin' Up! does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to any outside parties. However, it should be understood that such information is collected by Stampin' Up! and provided to us for our use as set forth herein.
