Please refer to this guide and be informed of minor changes that have been made to MissMaven.com.
What Personal Information is Collected:
Depending on how you use Miss Maven, we may ask you to share personal information with us. Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to personalize and improve our service. Whether you choose to give Miss Maven 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:
Miss Maven will ask you for information, including some personal information, if you use one of several services:
Becoming a registered user. In order for you to use certain parts of our websites or take advantage of certain Miss Maven services, you may be required to complete a registration form. To complete the registration form you will 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 MissMaven.com’s web pages. However, you will have to register if you want to place orders or make full use of our services.
Sweepstakes, Contests Raffles and Surveys. If you enter a sweepstakes, contest or raffle, or answer a survey, you will be asked to submit information such as your name and email address, as well as to verify that you are over the age of 13.
Our Ratings & Reviews or Question & Answer services. When you contact us, you will be asked for your name, city and state, email address, as well as to verify that you are over the age of 13. We may also collect information about questions and comment that you send to us. We use this information for product and site analysis only. If your question or comment is chosen to be featured on MissMaven.com, we will first ask for your permission to use your first name and city/state as part of the feature. We will NEVER publish or share your email address with any individuals or companies. If you do not consent to publishing your first name and city/state, we will anonymously use your question or comment if it is chosen to be featured.
You post information at your own risk. Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your pages and information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that information you post on the website will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the website. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of your information may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored your information.
Collection of Traffic Data. We may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Miss Maven may automatically receives and records certain “traffic data” on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, Miss Maven cookie information, the page you requested, and your communications and interaction with our other website registrants. Miss Maven uses this traffic data to, among other things, help diagnose problems with its server, analyze trends and administer and improve our websites.
Sharing of Traffic Data. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners and advertisers also understand how often people use their areas and our websites, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal Web experience. We also collect and use information for internal purposes.
Children Under The Age of 13:
Miss Maven does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register.
If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for Miss Maven or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on Miss Maven. You may look at our site, but you may not make a purchase. You also may not become a registered user, or use any service that asks for personal information.
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.
In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This policy is designed to protect children. Federal law requires us to take special steps to safeguard children’s privacy.
How Miss Maven Protects Your Information:
Miss Maven takes precautions to attempt to protect your personal information. 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 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. Also, because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services.
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 guarantee the security of any information you transmit, and you transmit all information at your own risk.
How Miss Maven Uses Your Personal Information:
Miss Maven collects 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.
In the event that another company buys the assets or stock of MissMaven.com, your personal information may then belong to another entity.
How to Avoid Receiving Newsletters and Other MissMaven.com Materials:
We use e-mail addresses to send out newsletters and other announcements with information about MissMaven.com’s new products and special features. When you register, you can choose not to receive these announcements by opting-out of delivery. If you receive an e-mail and want to avoid further messages, look at the end of the e-mail for instructions on how to remove yourself from the mailing list.
Who Views Your Personal Information:
Miss Maven 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 customer 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.

Personal information may be disclosed if required by law.
Miss Maven does not and will not sell or license personal information.
At this time, Miss Maven does not share any personal information with its 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 on our home page.
Miss Maven’s Use of Web Beacons:
We have included web beacons on some of our web pages. Miss Maven uses web beacons to transfer data (such as purchase and site usage history). Miss Maven may provide this data to companies that assist Miss Maven in data research and analysis; these companies are prohibited from using this data for any other purpose. The analysis and research helps Miss Maven to determine customer preferences and improve Miss Maven’s offerings. Miss Maven may also rely upon third parties to assist with the use and implementation of the web beacons.
Definition of web beacon: A web beacon, sometimes called a pixel, is a graphic image or small string of code that is included on web pages or in an email to enable the transfer of data. Web beacons can be used by companies for several purposes such as reporting web site traffic, customer preferences, advertising effectiveness, and general auditing.
