Privacy Policy

Welcome to Les Autres! Les Autres respects the sensitive nature of any personal information you provide to us. This Privacy Policy explains what we do with your information.

1. WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED?

In order improve your experience throughout our website, we collect information about you in a variety of ways. In some cases, Les Autres asks you directly for information in order for you to purchase products or use our services, and, in other cases, information is collected automatically as you use the tools and features provided throughout the website. You may choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to purchase products or take advantage of certain features we offer.

The following is a summary of the kinds of information we collect:

a. Active Collection

From You: Les Autres collects certain information you provide either voluntarily or as required to use certain Les Autres services or features. This type of information includes:

  • Contact information, such as name, company name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone
  • Demographic information about the User and/or the User’s company/institution.
  • Shipping or transaction information, such as billing address and financial information (credit card number and expiration date) if you choose to purchase products offered for sale on one or more of the Les Autres Properties.
  •  Information you enter in forms and optional surveys or contests, such as name and e-mail address.
  • Information provided in connection with discussions on bulletin boards, in chat rooms, and in messaging or other interactive services.
  • Information provided in e-mail requests and communications. If you send us correspondence, such as an email, letter or survey, we may collect such information into a file specific to you. All correspondence either provided to us or if contained within a customer survey, is deemed the property of Les Autres upon receipt.

From Other Sources: Les Autres  may request and receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information/user databases. This information includes the forms of personally identifiable information listed herein. We also sometimes receive updated delivery and address information from our shippers or other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily. In addition, we may acquire Usernames, e-mail addresses and mailing addresses for select mailings from third parties. Following any termination / cessation of your use of the Les Autres Properties, Les Autres may retain your information, including without limitation, your personally identifiable information.

b. Automatic Passive Collection

Some information is collected automatically while you are using Les Autres Properties. It is important to note that Les Autres stores this information to ensure its Users receive optimal service while using any of the Les Autres Properties. This type of information includes:

• Cookies: Les Autres Web sites use cookies to allow us to recognize you when you return to our site and to provide you with customized services and information. Although we do not store personal information in cookies, we do sometimes tie cookies to User member IDs, which is then used to pull personal information out of the database for identification purposes.

• Log Files: Log files information, such as IP addresses, browser type, domain names, number of page views, login frequency, page or section accesses. Log files are used to track user usage and engagement and to gauge the effectiveness of our different services. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer Les Autres Web sites.

• Les Autres also uses third parties to provide services to you on behalf of Les Autres, and in doing so they may set cookies on the site for functionality such as Live Chat and web analytic services. If you reject these cookies, you may not be permitted to use these features. Also, we use a third party to provide web analytic services which allows Les Autres to track website usage statistics and checkout information. For additional information regarding the information made available to third parties by Les Autres, see How Does Les Autres Use the Information Collected provided below.

For information on how to have your browser disable cookies or provide a warning before accepting a cookie, please refer to the cookie options in your browser’s Options or Preferences menu. If you do not accept cookies from Les Autres or our service providers, you may not be able to take full advantage of the Les Autres Properties as some services may not work. Les Autres employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that helps us better manage content across our sites by informing us which content is effective and when. We also use clear gifs in our HTML-based e-mails to let us know which e-mails get opened by their intended recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. In addition, clear gifs may be set by third parties to track sales resulting from Internet advertising campaigns and banner advertisements appearing on other web sites. If you would like to opt-out of these e-mails, please see the Choice/Opt-out section below.

Such third parties are obligated to only use and/or disclose your personally identifiable information for the purpose for which Les Autres disclosed the information to them, and no other purpose.
  • We may share certain information about you, including your contact information, with our business partners with your consent, such as when you elect to receive more information about a product, choose to complete a survey, or enter a contest, among other things.
