This Policy was last updated on February 10, 2022.

Avery+Madisson, LLC ("A+M," "we," "us," or "our"), respect your concerns about privacy. This Online Privacy Policy ("Policy") explains what personal information we collect through our websites and online services, how we use that information, to whom we disclose it, and how we safeguard personal information. Unless indicated otherwise, this Policy applies only to personal information collected through the websites, microsites, mobile applications, and other online services of the Avery+Madisson brand and lines of business that expressly adopt, display or link to this Policy, and then only to the extent indicated (collectively, the "Services").

 

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

1. Information You Provide

When you visit our Services, you may provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, address, phone number, email address, personal preferences, payment card number, purchase and ordering information, demographic information, responses to survey questions and any other information you choose to provide. Our Services may also give you the option to upload or share pictures or videos of yourself and others.

 

We collect this information at various places on our Services, such as when you check out with your online contract/agreement/order or service; engage with our mobile applications; subscribe to email offers and mobile messaging offers; participate in surveys; enter contests or sweepstakes; or interact with special-event or program offers.

 

We may also collect information that you provide on our Services about people you know where applicable.

 

2. Information Your Devices Provide Automatically

When you interact with our Services, we obtain certain information by automated means, including the following:

 
Location Information

We may obtain information about your location when you access or use our Services: for example, via your browser information and other similar device or browser attributes (like IP address) or our mobile applications. For more details, please see "What choices do you have over how your information is used?" below.

 
Navigational Information

When you access our Services, your computer, phone, or other device may provide navigational information, such as browser type and version, service-provider identification, IP address, the site or online service from which you came, and the site or online service to which you navigate.

 
Device Information

We also may obtain information about the computer or mobile device you use to access our Services, such as the hardware model, operating system and version, identification numbers assigned to your mobile device, such as the ID for Advertising (IDFA) on Apple devices, and the Advertising ID on Android devices, mobile network information, and website or app usage behavior.

 
Cookies, Clear Gifs, Analytics Services, and Similar Technologies

To better understand how you interact with our Services, we may collect information using cookies, clear gifs (also known as web beacons or web bugs), analytics services (including, without limitation, session replay software) and other similar technologies.

 

A cookie is a small amount of data that is stored by your browser on your device. It's used to do things like see how you navigate our Services and what you click on; remember you and your online purchases when you return; and recognize you and honor a special deal for you when you redeem one of our offers from a third party’s site. This helps us improve and deliver our Services, provide better customer service, tailor and improve your online experience, and tailor offers to you based on your unique tastes and a combination of your online and offline (e.g., in-store) interactions and purchase history.

 

A clear gif is a nearly invisible pixel-sized graphic image on a web page, web-based document or email message. It helps us do things like view the URL of the page on which the clear gif appears and the time the site, document, or email in question is viewed; and recognize you and honor a special deal for you when you navigate from a third party’s site to redeem one of our offers that may have appeared there. Clear gifs in emails help us confirm the receipt of, and response to, our emails, including those that you forward to friends and family; and they help deliver a more personalized or better online experience.

 

In addition to cookies and clear gifs, we may also use device identifiers, web storage, analytics services, such as session replay software, and other similar technologies, to collect information about your interactions with our content and Services. Session replay software is an analytics tool that allows us to capture and analyze a visitor’s interaction with our Services to better identify and repair any technical errors and optimize our Services. Such technologies may observe or record your activities when using our Services, including movements, scrolling, visit duration, clicks, information typed, and other interactions.

 

These technologies, illustrated above, may be used to help us understand which of our interactive experiences online users like most. Cookies, clear gifs, and similar technologies also allow us to associate your online navigational information and purchases and interactions (both online and offline) with personal information you provide (such as name, address, phone number, survey responses, and email address). We may associate this information to deliver products and services to you; improve our business; transact business; and market our products and services on this and other online services through a variety of media like email, mobile advertising, and direct mail.

For information about your options with respect to cookies and clear gifs, see "What choices do you have over how your information is used?" below.

3. Information Derived Through or Provided by Others

Affiliated entities, sister brands, vendors, social media networks, and advertising networks may provide us with, or supplement, information about you.

4. Third-Party Analytics and Personalization Services

We may use third-party analytics services to analyze site metrics and performance, analyze our visitors' preferences, optimize our Services for better user experiences, and serve personalized content to you through the use of some or all of the technologies described above, such as cookies, clear gifs, session replay software, and other similar technologies.
