We at Yael Sonia (alternatively, “YaelSonia.com” , “we” or “us”) respect your concerns about and right to privacy. This Global Privacy Notice describes the types of personal information we collect about our consumers, how we use the information, with whom we share it and the choices available to our consumers regarding our use of the information. We also describe the measures we take to protect the security of the information and how you can contact us about our privacy practices. In particular, we want to describe and disclose to you what kind of information we may collect from you through our website www.yaelsonia.com (the “Website”).
We may collect personal information about you in various ways, such as when you provide it at our store, on our Website, through our apps and any social media channels, at any of our events, through surveys, via text messages or on the telephone. Through our Website, we collect information about you that you submit voluntarily. This information may include both personally identifiable information (“PII”), which may enable us or others to identify you personally, and non-personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”). By way of example only, PII may include your first and last names and your email address, and any other information you may voluntarily provide. Non-PII may include information which, by itself, does not identify you personally, but in combination with other PII or other information may facilitate identifying you personally. The types of personal information we may collect include:
In addition, when you visit our Website, open our emails, use our apps or interact with Yael Sonia-related tools, widgets or plug-ins, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies, web beacons and web server logs. The information we collect in this manner includes IP address, unique device identifier, browser characteristics, device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, information on actions taken on our site, and dates and times of website visits. A “cookie” is a file that websites send to a visitor’ s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’ s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. Through these automated collection methods, we obtain “clickstream data,” which is a log of the links and other content on which a visitor clicks while browsing a website. As the visitor clicks through the website, a record of the action may be collected and stored. We may link certain data elements we have collected through automated means, such as your browser information, with other information we have obtained about you to let us know, for example, whether you have opened an email we sent to you. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies or how to restrict or disable certain types of cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of our websites or apps. The providers of third-party apps, tools, widgets and plug-ins on our Website and apps, such as Facebook “Like” buttons, also may use automated means to collect information regarding your interactions with these features. This information is collected directly by the providers of the features and is subject to the privacy policies or notices of these providers. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Yael Sonia is not responsible for these providers’ information practices.
We also may use the information in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection. We do not and will not, without your consent, disclose or sell your PII to any third parties for marketing, advertising, or soliciting purposes and will not use such PII for any of our own marketing purposes to which you have not consented. In addition, we use information collected through cookies, web beacons, pixels, web server logs and other automated means for purposes such as (i) customizing our users’ visits to our Website and apps, (ii) delivering content tailored to our users’ interests and the manner in which our users browse our Website and apps, and (iii) managing our Website, apps and other aspects of our business. To the extent required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent before collecting information using cookies or similar automated means. We may at times have to disclose your PII or Non-PII for other purposes such as: (1) to store PII or Non- PII securely; (2) to host or maintain the Website; (3) to conduct research to improve our Website, such as compiling statistical information or data; (4) to monitor and prevent fraud; (5) to enable our vendors and contractors to provide and assist us in troubleshooting and analysis of our Website; (6) to comply with and meet any legal or regulatory requirements; (6) to engage in any other lawful activities we believe are consistent with the foregoing; or (7) when required by law or to protect against legal liability. We may provide or obtain any of the above services through third parties which may necessitate sharing PII or Non- PII with them. We may use third-party analytics services on our Website and apps, such as those of Google Analytics or Adobe Omniture. The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons to help us analyze your use of our Website and apps. The information collected through these means (including IP address) may be disclosed to these analytics providers and other relevant third parties who use the information, for example, to evaluate use of the website or app.
When you use our Website and apps, both we and certain third parties (such as our advertising networks, digital advertising partners and social media platforms) may collect personal information about your online activities, over time and across third-party websites. Certain web browsers allow you to instruct your browser to send Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals to websites you visit, informing those sites that you do not want your online activities to be tracked. At this time, our Website and apps are not designed to respond to all types of DNT signals or similar mechanisms from browsers as there is no common, industry-accepted standard for doing so. Thus, information about your online activities may continue to be tracked on our site and used to maintain our website’ s functionality and for our own analytics purposes described in this Privacy Notice even if your browser sends us a DNT signal. However, when we recognize a relevant DNT signal, we aim to suppress the third-party tags that are used to recognize your computer once you navigate away from our site and which are used to present you with Yael Sonia advertisements. As noted, since there is no uniform standard for DNT signal recognition, we may update our policy and practice as new technologies and solutions emerge. As indicated in the “Your Rights and Choices” section above, we offer you certain choices in connection with the personal information we collect about you and our interest-based advertising activities.
Subject to certain limitations under California Civil Code § 1798.83, California residents may ask us to provide them with (i) a list of certain categories of personal information that we have disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, and (ii) the identity of those third parties. To make this request, California residents may contact us as specified in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
You must be 18 years or older to use this web site, and therefore we do not intend to collect personally identifiable information from children under age 18. If you are under age 18, please ask your parent before sending any information to our site or anyone else online. Have your parent contact us as indicated below in order to provide us with prior written consent. We will not intentionally use personal information from or send marketing communications to children under age 13 without prior parental consent. If you believe that a minor has disclosed PII to us please report this to us immediately by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us during regular business hours at: (212) 472-6488.
We may transfer the personal information we collect about you to the United States and countries outside of the country in which the information originally was collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Global Privacy Notice.
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. We make reasonable efforts to make sure that such information is stored securely and safely. Regardless of these efforts by us, no data transmission over the public Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure at all times. Consequently, although we may use reasonable efforts to secure access to information, including PII that might be in our possession, we will not be liable for any failure to safeguard such information, whether inadvertent or otherwise. If such information is also stored with third parties who have informed us that they also use reasonable efforts to secure access to such information, we will not be liable for the failure of any third party to safeguard such information, whether inadvertent or otherwise.
