MelindaFabian.com may keep some of your personal information, (such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) for the purposes of providing shipment of purchased items.

MelindaFabian.com automatically collects information for non-identifying statistics, such as information about how many visitors utilize the Site.  Our servers will log IP addresses and collect third-party sites (and information from these sites) from your use of the Site.  MelindaFabian.com uses this information to measure the use of our Site, to improve the content of our Site, and to provide our users with the best possible services.

You are not required to reveal personal information to use the site.  Should you sign up for any newsletters or alerts, that information will not be shared with any other persons or companies.

MelindaFabian.com does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or companies except to provide services that you have requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

We will respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Use, or as otherwise required by law.

Links to Other Sites

We provide links to a number of third-party external sites.  The inclusion of any link does not imply our endorsement of the external site company, its Website or Websites, or the products and services it promotes or sells.  When you leave our Site to visit one of these linked sites, the only information transferred to the third party is the fact that you came from our Site.

Children's Privacy

We believe that protecting the privacy of children is especially important, and for that reason it is our intention to never collect or maintain information from children at our Site unless the disclosure of such information is done with verifiable parental or guardian consent.  If a visitor known to be a child (under the age of 13) sends an e-mail to us, we will only use it to respond to the e-mail writer and not to create profiles or otherwise retain the information.
