You will be given the opportunity to opt-out, provided that, if you choose to opt-out all or part of the service or products may no longer be available to you. If as the result of such changes, you want to alter the ways in which CollageBerry is allowed to use your personal information, you can do so by following the procedure described in the section below titled “Personal Account.” You will be deemed to have been made aware of, and will be subject to, the changes to the Privacy Policy by your continued use of the service or products after such notice has been given with the following exception: if at the time you provide personal information to CollageBerry you limit how such information will be used to communicate with you, either by CollageBerry or by third parties, CollageBerry will not change your preference in this regard without your express consent.

If you wish to deactivate your personal Account, you can contact us at support@collageberry.com.  When you deactivate your personal Account, all information stored and maintained as part of your Account will be deleted from our servers (although some information may be retained for archival, backup and record purposes).  You may change your personal information and privacy preferences at any time by logging into your personal Account.

Personal information

We do not collect personally identifiable information from your computer when you browse our Website. This means that, unless you voluntarily provide us with your personally identifiable information, such as an email address or name, we will not know your name, your email address, or any other personally identifiable information.  There may be circumstances, however, where you voluntarily provide information to us, or where CollageBerry, its partners or affiliates, may request information from you in order to provide certain requested Services.  When you voluntarily submit personally identifiable data to CollageBerry, this data may be stored and analyzed in order to monitor the efficiency of the Services or to check for functionality errors or to upgrade or otherwise improve our Services.    

You may choose to give us personal information in a variety of situations. For example, you may choose to give us information such as your name, address, or email in order to correspond with us, to process an order, for us to provide you with a subscription to our Services, or you may need to provide us with your credit card or other billing information when purchasing Services from us.  We respect your choices regarding use of personal information provided to us, and we will not use your personal information outside of the scope of uses outlined in this Privacy Policy, or beyond fulfilling your request for Services or other information without giving you notice thereof, and the chance to opt-out of any such other use.  In addition to personal information that may be collected from you, CollageBerry may automatically collect certain technical information, including  internet protocol (“IP”) address, and other reference information regarding your location, Media Access Control (“MAC” ) address, mobile device identifiers (if used to access the Website or Services), International Mobile Equipment Identity (“IMEI,” ) and time-stamped logs of messages sent and received, and network status (WiFi, etc.), if such information is available.  We collect this information in order to make the Website function correctly and to provide you with the content that you see on the Website.  We also use this information to better understand how users use the Website and how we can make the Website, its contents, and functionality better meet users’ needs.

Unless expressly provided otherwise, personal information that you provide while you are visiting the website of a partner or affiliate of CollageBerry will be subject to the privacy policy posted on that partner or affiliate’s website, and personal information that you provide while on our Website in conjunction with that partner's or affiliate’s service will be subject to this Privacy Policy.  For instance, credit card information entered as part of filling out a purchase form or registration process collected by a third party’s registration and/or merchant services is subject to that third party’s privacy policies.  You should be aware that CollageBerry’s agreements with service providers, partners, or affiliates, often provide that they will share with CollageBerry personal information collected from you.  In such instances, CollageBerry may use this information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Circumstances may arise in which, whether for strategic or other business reasons, CollageBerry decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize its businesses. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but will remain subject to any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the user consents otherwise). Also, in the event that CollageBerry or substantially all of its assets are acquired, user information may be one of the transferred assets.  These transactions may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or receiving such information from sellers. It is CollageBerry’s practice to seek appropriate protection for all disclosed personal information in these types of transactions wherever possible.

Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Technologies

The CollageBerry Website uses “cookie” and “web beacon” technology.  “Cookies” are short pieces of data generated by a web server that a website stores on a user’s computer.  Certain pages on our Website may require the use of a cookie for purposes of keeping information you enter on multiple pages together.  Cookies also enable us to collect certain non-identifiable information and customize our Website and offerings to your needs and provide you with a better online experience with us. 

For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity on CollageBerry’s Website, but we do so in ways that keep the information non-identifiable.  This information is sometimes known as "clickstream data" and CollageBerry, its partners, affiliates, or others on CollageBerry’s behalf may use this data to analyze trends and statistics and to help us provide better customer service. 

In addition, cookies are used to:

  • measure usage of various pages on our Website to help us make our information more pertinent to your needs and easy for you to access;
  • identify and categorize the internet webpages from which the visitor came to the Website and observe their browsing patterns; and
  • provide functionality such as online orders, CollageBerry’s Services and other functions that we believe would be of interest and value to you.

The types of cookies that we use are referred to as “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies.  Session cookies are temporary and are automatically deleted once you leave the Website.  Persistent cookies remain on your computer hard drive until you delete them. Cookies do not, under ordinary circumstances, corrupt or damage your computer, programs, or computer files.

In addition, the service providers we use to serve and host our advertisements, and/or deliver our emails may use session and persistent cookies, to track the number of times the Website is accessed and whether the site was accessed from an advertisement.  There are no cookies in the advertisements or emails.  A cookie is placed on your computer only if and when you click on an advertisement or open the email.  The cookie generated from the advertisement or email does not contain any personally identifiable information and will remain on your hard drive until you delete it.

You may set your browser to block cookies (consult the instructions for your particular browser on how to do this), although doing so may adversely affect your ability to perform certain transactions, use certain functionality and access certain content on our Website.  Please also note that if you turn off cookies, web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to our website, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded.

Web beacons are used in combination with cookies to help website operators understand how visitors interact with their websites. A web beacon is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a site. As opposed to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. These web beacons are not tied to personally identifiable information. The use of a web beacons allows the site to measure the actions of the visitor opening the page that contains the web beacon. It makes it easier to follow and record the activities of a recognized browser, such as the path of pages visited at a website.  CollageBerry may use the information provided by web beacons to develop a better understanding of how the Website’s users use the Website, and to facilitate those users’ interactions with the Website.  CollageBerry may make the aggregate data obtained from web analytics (including from our third party analytics providers, if applicable) publicly available. If this data is made available, none of the information will be personally identifying information or potentially-personally identifying information.

Also, when we collect personal data from you in a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-personally identifiable information such as click-stream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner you can disable your cookies through your web browser.

Service Quality Monitoring By Phone

Certain transactions that users perform on our Website may also involve contact between users and CollageBerry by phone. Please be aware that it is CollageBerry’s general practice to monitor and in some cases record such calls for staff training or quality assurance purposes. 

Online Advertising

Certain companies help us deliver interactive online advertising such as banner ads. These companies may collect and use information about our users to help us better understand the types of offers, promotions, and advertising that are most appealing to our users. All information collected in this way is aggregated so it is not personally identifiable to any specific individual. If you would prefer that these companies not collect such information, please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/ and follow the "opt-out" instructions.
