Verlenes.com Privacy Policy

Verlene’s.com knows that you care how information about you is used and shared and we take your privacy very seriously. We value that trust that you have placed in us to handle this information carefully and respectfully. By visiting Verlenes.com, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. If you have any questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy, please contact us at info@verlenes.com.

Anonymous vs. Personally Identifiable Information
Information collected online is often defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable. Anonymous information is information that cannot be tied to a specific individual. For example, we might know that 25,000 people visited verlenes.com in a month, which is "anonymous" information, but we do not know information such as the names or addresses of the visitors. Personally identifiable information is information that tells us specific information about a user. For example, if you provided your name and home address to us, that would be personally identifiable information.

Anonymous Information Gathered Automatically
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Our web servers automatically collect and store this anonymous information about your visit including, but not limited to:

  • The Internet domain name (for example, "yourcompany.com" if you use a private internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a university’s domain) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web) from which you access our web site;
  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  • The date and time you access our site;
  • The click-through rates;
  • The amount of time that you spend on our site;
  • The pages you visit; and
  • If you linked to this site from another web site, the address of that web site.
What Personal Information Does Verlenes.com Gather?

You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
  • E-mail Communications:To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from Verlenes.com if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your preferences in the My Account section.

  • The use of cookies is a largely standard practice on the Internet. Cookies are bits of data stored on your computer that enable our computer to recognize yours.
  • Most browsers will tell you how to block acceptance of new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.

Does Verlenes.com Share the Information It Receives?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at Verlenes.com. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information about our customers is an important asset for our business, and we take it very seriously. We do not rent, sell or share your personally identifiable information to unrelated companies. In some cases, we selectively share customer information only as described below with affiliates and third parties that may help us perform various business functions. In these cases, the information we provide is subject to this Privacy Policy or follows practices at least as protective as those described in this Policy.

  • Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with our affiliated businesses including salons, barber shops, beauty supply stores, marketers, etc. In some cases, these businesses operate stores hosted and/or operated by Verlenes.com or sell offerings to you at Verlenes.com. In other cases, we operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines jointly with these businesses. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.
  • Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on behalf of Verlenes.com. Some examples of these third party services include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but they are not allowed to use it for other purposes.
  • Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of Verlenes.com customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such offers, please adjust your preferences in the My Account section of the site.
  • Mergers and AcquisitionsAs Verlenes.com grows and continues to develop its business, we might sell or acquire stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In these cases, customer information generally is transferred along with the business but the information continues to be subject to the legacy Privacy Notice. Also, in the unlikely event that Verlene’s, LLC, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.
  • As Mandated By Law or For Security Purposes:We may release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Verlenes.com, our users, or others.
How Does Verlenes.com Secure Information About Me?
When we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information such as financial information, we redirect visitors to a secure server for the transfer of data. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site. These protections include the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software which encrypts information you input.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided by our on-line products or services, and you do so at your own risk. We will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we will make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password.

They may receive your IP address, use cookies, JavaScript, and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Verlenes.com does not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party websites are not covered by this Privacy Notice.
