Welcome to the Bloom and Grace website (the “Site”). At Bloom and Grace we seek to provide you with a enjoyable shopping experience while maintaining your privacy. The information that we may collect through the Site will allow us to enhance your shopping experience by catering to your personal preferences and providing effective customer service.
In order to use the Site you may be required to complete a registration process in which we will collect certain personal information such as your name, address and email address. When you register, you will also consent to receive email correspondence from us. We will use your personal information to complete transactions, respond to your requests, deliver the products and services you request, and notify you of promotions, updates, or special offers that we think may interest you.
In the event that you voluntarily submit additional, unsolicited personal information during the registration process or thereafter to Bloom and Grace, you expressly consent to Bloom and Grace’s collection and storage of such information.
If you wish to discontinue email correspondence at any time, simply follow the instructions to “Manage Your Subscription” which appear in every email we send, or contact us through the Contact Us page.
If you chose to invite a friend to join Bloom and Grace you will need to provide us with his or her name and email address. We will store this information to track the results of your invitations.
We collect general statistics to track user trends on our Site. These statistics include hits to our server, the types of browsers used to access our Site, page views, and navigational patterns. This type of information helps us track “where” our users are coming from so that we can target strong demographic areas and determine the most effective ways to communicate with our users. In connection with this analysis, Bloom and Grace also uses devices called “web beacons” to help us identify when emails sent to you have been received and read. We may also collect IP addresses and other information in order to prevent the introduction of viruses and hackers into the Site.
PROTECTION OF OUR INFORMATION
Shopping on the Site is easy, secure and worry-free. We have taken several measures to guarantee that your order and your credit card information are safe and secure. Our servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an advanced encryption technology that works with Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 and above), Netscape Navigator (versions 2.0 and above), and AOL (AOL 3.0 and above), and the Site’s security has been tested & verified by McAfee Secure Sign.
SSL is considered the industry standard and is among the leading software available to encrypt online transactions. Your personal information including your name, credit card number and address is encrypted so that it cannot be read as it is transmitted over the Internet. Regardless of these efforts, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, any information you transmit to us is sent at your own risk.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
Bloom and Grace will use your personal information in an effort to improve your shopping experience and provide you with information, products or services that we think may be of interest to you. For example, we may share the personal information you provide to us as well as demographic information and purchase history we collect with strategic partners, such as suppliers, in order to select products that we believe may be of interest to you. Within that framework, any of our employees, third-party contractors or strategic partners whom are given access to your personal information will be contractually obligated to keep such information confidential and to use the information only to provide the services we ask them to perform for you and for us.
Except as set forth above, Bloom and Grace does not rent or sell personal information to anyone, including third parties intending to use such information for direct marketing purposes. We may provide aggregate statistics, which do not include personal information, about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related Site information to reputable third party vendors. We may also disclose personal information we collect from you if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Bloom and Grace, third parties or the public at large.
COLLECTION OF INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN
We do not intentionally collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If we become aware that we have collected personally identifiable information from a user of the Site who is under the age of thirteen, we will remove that child’s personal information from our files.

You may access and update your personal information and your preferences to receive email or other communications through the My Account page.

Current members will not receive email invitations at any registered email address, but may receive invitations from friends at an email address that is not yet known to us. We will take commercially reasonable steps to implement your opt-out requests, but you may still receive communications from us for up to ten business days as we process your request.
