This Privacy Policy describes how we protect the privacy and security of the information collected online on michaelcfina.com.

Information Collected on Our Website

We collect information from you online when you purchase merchandise through our website or when you register with Michael C. Fina's online registry service. When you purchase merchandise through our website or when you register, you will be asked to provide certain personally identifiable information such as your name, billing address, e-mail address, telephone number(s), credit card number and shipping information (name and address for shipping if it differs from your billing address).

If you join our online registry service, we may also ask you to provide personally identifiable information on people you would like to include in your registry. You are not required to provide this information, but may do so for your own convenience. As with any information we collect, we generally do not share this information with anyone outside of the company or its agents, except as described below (please see below for more details on how we use the information we collect).

Use of Information Collected on Our Website

Michael C. Fina collects and uses personally identifiable information in a limited number of ways. We use the information we collect to complete transactions, to track and verify orders, to send you information about promotional or special offers (if you have so requested), and to respond to your inquiries. We share your information with certain third parties, such as processors of credit card transactions, who help us perform the functions just described. In addition, we may share your information with certain third parties in order to provide you with details on promotions, contests, other events or related products that may be of interest to you. These third parties are bound to follow the terms of this Privacy Policy when they handle your information.

We do not share your personally identifiable information with other third parties, with certain exceptions. We may share information when we are legally required to do so, such as in the case of an investigation, legal process, or other legal proceeding. We also may share information to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our website. In addition, we may share information to limit our legal liability and to protect our rights or property, our website, or the rights or property of our customers or members of the public.

We use "cookies" to provide visitors a personalized experience on our website. Cookies are small pieces of information that a website transfers to the hard drive of a visitor's computer for temporary record-keeping purposes. We use cookies to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our site and to better tailor our website to our visitors' needs. For example, using cookies allows you to put items in a "shopping cart" and order that merchandise at the "checkout" portion of the website. In addition, we may use cookies for statistical collection or analysis to monitor general usage patterns of customers on our website (such as the amount of time spent on our website and the amount of time between a customer's first visit and first purchase).

Most browsers used by visitors have options that allow the visitor to control whether the browser will accept cookies, reject cookies, or notify the visitor each time a cookie is sent, but setting a browser to reject cookies will limit the range of features available to the visitor on our website.

Protection of Information Collected on Our Website

Michael C. Fina undertakes to keep information obtained from our online visitors secure and protected from unauthorized access and use. Although there is no way that any website can absolutely guarantee the security of your information, Michael C. Fina is committed to employing reasonable security measures and to regularly reviewing our security practices. When you provide us with personally identifiable information, your information is encrypted and transferred over a Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) connection, available on browsers such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer. In addition, we use encryption methods to protect credit card information that we collect online. Once your information reaches us, we store it behind a secure firewall that is intended to block access to the information from unauthorized persons. Only individuals authorized by Michael C. Fina are permitted to access the information. Please be aware that these protection tools do not protect information that is not collected through our website, such as information provided to us by e-mail.
