Privacy Policy

What our Privacy Policy Covers
This Privacy Policy covers any personal information that CurlyQ Cuties obtains from you when you use services on our site. This policy does not cover the practices of companies that CurlyQ Cuties does not own or control, or the actions of people that CurlyQ Cuties does not employ or manage.

Our Privacy Policy may change in the future. We invite you to check back periodically to see if we have made any changes.

What Personal Information is Collected
Depending on how you use our site, we may ask you to share personal information with us. Whether you choose to give us information is completely up to you, but keep in mind that if you withhold information, you may not be able to use some of our services.

When Personal Information is Collected
We will ask you for information, including some personal information, if you use one of several services:
  • Becoming a registered user. In order to register, you need to share some personal information, such as your name and e-mail address. You do not have to be a registered user to visit our web pages, but you will have to register if you want to save your designs or make full use of our services.
  • Making a purchase. When you buy something on CurlyQCuties.com, you have to supply a billing address, shipping address, and credit card information.
  • Joining our affiliate program. To join our affiliate program, you must supply your legal name and a current physical mailing address. You must be a registered user to become an affiliate.
  • Providing feedback on your experience. When you make a purchase from us, we may ask you about your experience. You may also provide feedback using the red feedback tab found on most of our web site's pages. Providing feedback about your CurlyQ Cuties' experience is optional.
  • Entering sweepstakes or contests. When you enter a CurlyQ Cuties sweepstakes or contest, you need to share personal information such as your name, birthdate, and e-mail address.
How We Protect Your Information
We realize that our customers trust us to protect their personal information. We take that task seriously. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. For example:
  • We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") authentication to guarantee the confidentiality of online transactions made on our site. SSL authentication and encryption of the information that you send to us over the Internet help protect your online transaction information from third party interception.
  • We never display your full credit card number once it has been entered.
  • We urge you to protect your own privacy. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone or share your password in an unsolicited phone call or e-mail.
Unfortunately, despite all of our efforts, there is always a risk that third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions. This reality is true of all Internet use. As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit, and you transmit all information at your own risk.

How We Use Your Personal Information
We collect personal information primarily to make our services more rewarding for you to use. We usually use this information for internal purposes, such as studying our customers' preferences. We may also use your information to contact you for account and promotional purposes.

We may periodically send new product notifications and promotional emails to the email address associated with your CurlyQ Cuties' account. You may opt out of these promotional mailings by either using the SafeUnsubscribe link in our email or by contacting us directly.

We may use any feedback you voluntarily provide to us--either in whole or in part--along with the first and last initials of your name and your location (city, state/region, and/or country) on our web site as a testimonial.

If you win a CurlyQ Cuties' sweepstakes or contest, we may publish your first name, your last name, and your location (city, state/region, and/or country) in our newsletter and/or on our website.

Who Views Your Personal Information
We may share your personal information with companies that perform services for us, such as fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mails, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, investigating fraudulent activity, conducting customer surveys, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not disclose your personally identifiable information for other purposes.

Some personal information is stored on servers owned by other companies. Only CurlyQ Cuties has the right to access this information.

Personal information may be disclosed if required by law. We do not currently sell or license personal information. Before selling or licensing your personal information, we will post a notice in this Privacy Policy.

At this time, we do not share any personal information with our affiliates. It is possible that this policy will change in the future. If we do decide to share information with our affiliates, we will post a notice in this Privacy Policy.

Children Under 13
You can look at our site, but you cannot make a purchase. You also cannot become a registered user or use any service that asks for personal information. We do not wish to collect personal information from children under 13.

This policy is designed to protect children. Federal law requires us to take special steps to safeguard children's privacy. For more information about this federal law and about children's privacy, go to http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/privacyinitiatives/childrens.html.

If you register with us and we discover that you are under 13, we will delete your registration. We will send you a message if we do this. If you are under 13 and want to make a purchase, please ask a parent to place the order for you.
