This website is not intended for children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children. If you are a parent or guardian of a child and believe he or she has disclosed personal information to us without your permission, please contact Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org. A parent or guardian of a child under the age of eighteen may review and request deletion of such child’s personal information as well as prohibit the use thereof.
This website is operated in the United States (US) and is intended for users located in the US.
1. TYPE AND NATURE OF THE DATA COLLECTED AND PROCESSED.
When you sign up for our newsletter or make a purchase, the systems in place collect and store your basic personal data such as your name and email address, as well as additional contact information such as your username and password. Additional information about you may be collected if you enter it through the website or through your communication with Cindy's Creative Cards.
When you place orders on the Stampin’ Up! website or Cindy's Online Store, your name, delivery address, billing address, email address, phone number, credit card number, and expiration date is needed to process the transaction and to notify you of the status of your order.
2. HOW WE COLLECT DATA
Cookies are used to identify you for the duration of your visit to give you the best experience possible on the site.
Cookies are small ﬁles that are stored on your computer or mobile device, and they identify the device when connecting to our server, as well as providing additional information. Other technologies such as tracking pixels, web bugs, web storage, and similar ﬁles serve the same purpose. Cookies are stored on your computer.
If you deactivate cookies, a number of website functions may no longer operate as intended.
2.2 LOG FILES FOR WEB PAGE VIEWS
Cindy's Creative Cards uses external tracking services that implement technology to track non-personal information about visitors to this website. The access data is stored in a log ﬁle—the server log—every time a page is accessed. The resulting data set contains the following data:
Provided that this data is not absolutely necessary for the technical maintenance of the system or system security, it is immediately anonymized, and the original logs deleted. Anonymization takes place through the removal or shortening of the IP address by assigning a code that is not assigned to any specific user. This means that assignment to a specific or identifiable person is no longer possible. Cindy's Creative Cards uses log data (log files) exclusively in anonymous form for statistical evaluations without any link or references to your personal data. This enables us to detect possible program errors or incorrect links and to continuously develop and improve the website. Cindy's Creative Cards does not link page views and usage information to individual people.
2.3 WEB ANALYSIS SOFTWARE
In addition to the technologies used to execute the page functions, we also employ web analysis software. Data collected by this software may include the time and duration of the visit, the pages visited, the browser used, add-ons/plug-ins, search engines, and referrer URLs.
Web analysis is carried out by Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), among others. Google Analytics uses “cookies”—text files stored on your computer—to be able to analyze how you use the website. Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of the website, to generate reports on website activity for the website operator, and to provide other services associated with website activity and internet use. Due to the activated anonymization of the data collected, Google shortens your IP address. The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data.

2.4 TRACKING PIXELS (WEB BEACONS / WEB BUGS)
Software technology called tracking pixels (also known as web beacons / web bugs) may be used to help us manage the content on this website better by determining the greatest eﬀectiveness.
Tracking pixels are tiny graphics with a unique identiﬁer that function in a manner similar to cookies and are used to track the online movements of web users. Unlike cookies, which are installed on the hard drive of the user’s computer, tracking pixels are invisible. Data collected by tracking pixels is not linked to our customers’ personal data.
We may use tracking pixels in HTML emails to track which emails have been opened by recipients. This helps to evaluate the eﬀectiveness of certain communications and marketing campaigns.
All email messages that are subject to archiving requirements are stored by Cindy’s Creative Cards. Every email that can be regarded as a business letter or is relevant for tax purposes will not be deleted during the period of the legal obligation to keep records in accordance with tax, commercial, and other applicable laws of the United States. Furthermore, we collect all email addresses to which messages could not be delivered to enable us to request a current email address. Email messages from Cindy's Creative Cards may contain graphics or links, the accessing of which allows us to determine whether an email message has been opened. This is done anonymously.
2.6 MOBILE DEVICE IDENTIFIERS
Some mobile service providers uniquely identify mobile devices, and we may receive such device information if you access the website through mobile devices. Some features of the website may require collection of mobile phone numbers, which may be associated with mobile device identification information. Additionally, some mobile phone service providers operate systems that pinpoint the physical location of devices that use their service. Depending on the provider, Cindy's Creative Cards may receive this information.
3. PURPOSE OF DATA COLLECTION AND DATA STORAGE
The collection, storage, processing, and use of data serves to simplify, administer, and further develop this website and to process your orders. As part of ongoing development, anonymous statistics on the use of our services are utilized.
Cindy's Creative Cards will also send you emails for various reasons. These emails may also contain information about services, new product offers, and promotions, provided you have agreed to the usage of your email address for this purpose.
You can withdraw this consent at any time. Simply unsubscribe from the email newsletter or send an email to email@example.com.
4. TO WHOM DO WE DISCLOSE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

5. DATA SECURITY
Cindy's Creative Cards, through GoDaddy.com (the site hosting service), takes precautions to ensure that your data is protected against loss, modification and improper use by employing firewalls and other security systems. Unfortunately, it is impossible to provide absolute protection against attacks by new viruses or other methods of attacking the secure data systems of internet services. In the event that your personal information (as such may be defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, you may be notified by email in our sole discretion unless required by law to the last email address you provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances. Delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system, as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation.
Cindy's Creative Cards uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for the encrypted transfer of sensitive data, such as the password for your account and billing information, including credit card information, from your web browser to our web server.
6. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
