As we further describe below, we may share your Personal Information with third parties for their marketing purposes. You can inform us not to do so by emailing us at hello@weddingchamps.com

Here are a few general principles to keep in mind as you read through this Policy:

  • This Site is owned or operated by Dev International FZE. (Referred in this Policy as “Wedding Champs,” “we,” “us,” “our” and other similar pronouns).

You may have the right to opt in to or opt out of certain of our uses and disclosures of your Personal Information. For example, when you are asked to provide Personal Information on this Site, you may have the opportunity to choose to, or not to, receive promotional messages from us (as defined below). You may unsubscribe from our promotional emails by clicking on the opt-out link within the e-mail you receive.

Personal Information

While you may be able to visit and view content on the Site without providing any Personal Information, we may collect Personal Information on or through the Site in various circumstances.

“Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify you or contact you as an individual, as well as information attributed with such information. Personal Information includes, for example, your name; age or date of birth; postal address; e-mail address; telephone number; wireless device address; text message address; screen name or username; photograph; gender; geolocation information; payment card and other payment information; event dates and related information; information about your family; and interests, hobbies and demographic information. We collect Personal Information via the Site in a variety of circumstances, such as when you conduct a transaction on our Site; List on our Site; sign up for our newsletters; sign-up for certain services; make online purchases; complete surveys; contribute to a chat room, bulletin board, message board, list serve, blog, or submit a comment or question to us by using a “contact us” or similar feature on the Site. On some of our Sites, you may not be able to participate in certain activities or access certain content, unless you provide us with the requested Personal Information.

A “refer-a-friend” tool (or similar feature) on the Site or in our e-mails and other communications allows you to send information about our Sites, services and offerings to another person. In other circumstances, you may be able to provide us information about other people involved in your event, such as your significant other, wedding party, etc. When you use these services, we will typically ask you for the name or other information (e.g., email addresses) of the other person. This information will be treated in accordance with this Policy. With the “refer-a-friend” or similar feature, we may automatically send an email inviting the recipient(s) to read the article, view the content or visit the Site. We store this information for purposes of sending this email and tracking the success of our “refer-a-friend” or similar feature. Your “friend” (i.e., the third party whose information you submit using such feature) may contact us atinfo@weddingchamps.com to request that we remove this information from our database (and in some cases, may be able to opt out of receiving future promotional emails from us).

Site Usage Information

As is the case with many Web sites, our servers automatically collect your IP address when you visit the Site, and we may associate that with your domain name or that of your Internet access provider. We may also capture certain “data analytics” pertaining to your usage of and navigation around the Site. Web Analytics data includes, for example, information about your computer or device, Web browser and operating system and their settings, the referring page that linked you to the Site, the pages or ads you see or click on during your visit and when and for how long you do so, items you download, and any search terms you have entered on the Site. All of this information may be used for a variety of purposes, including, for example, to gather aggregated demographic or statistical information.

In addition, we may deploy various tracking technologies on the Site to collect additional information about your Site visits. These technologies may enable us to, for example, assign a unique number to you, to collect information about your usage of our Site, administer the Site and our systems, and to relate such Site usage information to other information about you, including your Personal Information.

By using our Site, you agree to our use of these tracking technologies. Examples of the types of tracking technologies deployed on the Site include the following:

  • “Cookies” are small data files stored on your computer or device at the request of a Web site. In addition to the general purposes listed above, cookies may enable us to recognize you as the same user who was at our Site in the past, and relate your use of the Site to other information about you, such as other Site usage information and Personal Information. Cookies may also be used to enhance your experience on the Site and/or to collect general usage and aggregated statistical information.
  • A “pixel tag” is a tiny image – typically just one-pixel – that can be placed on a Web page or in our electronic communications to you in order to help us measure the effectiveness of our content by, for example, counting the number of individuals who visit us online or verifying whether you’ve opened one of our emails or seen one of our Web pages.
  • “HTML5” (the language some Web sites, such as mobile Web sites, are coded in) may be used to store information on your computer or device about your Site usage activities and to help determine how our Site is being used by our visitors, how it can be improved, and to customize it for our users.

The above tracking technologies may be deployed by us or our service providers on our behalf.

For example, we currently use, and/or in the future may use certain third party vendors to collect Site usage information and track traffic to, from and around the Sites. To find out how you may be able to opt out of certain information by, such third parties, email us on hello@weddingchamps.com

By using our Site, you agree to our use of these tracking technologies.

Do Not Track Disclosures

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, we currently do not change our tracking practices (which are explained in more detail directly above) in response to “do-not-track” (DNT) settings in your web browser. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals.

Our third party partners, such as web analytics companies and social media and networking platforms, collect information about your online activities over time and across our Site and other online properties. These third parties do not change their tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser and we do not obligate these parties to honor DNT settings. Information about how to opt-out from your data being used by third parties can be found above under “Site Usage Information”.

How we may use your information

We (or one of our service providers, on our behalf) may use your information (including your Personal Information and Site usage information) for a variety of purposes, such as the following:

  • processing and fulfilling your transactions
  • administering the Site, the Site’s features and services, and your account with us
  • enabling users to use the Site and the Site’s features and services
  • responding to your requests, questions, and concerns
  • developing new features and offerings on the Site
  • sending you marketing and other communications, including information about products, services, and events, of ours and of others, that we think might interest you. You may opt out of receiving such notices from us by following the instructions in the Opt In and Opt Out section above.
  • protecting our rights and property
  • customizing the Site to your interests and history with us
  • tailoring ads displayed to you on our Site and elsewhere to your interests and history
  • other purposes described at the time you choose to provide Personal Information to us

To perform the above functions, we may match information collected from you through different means or at different times, including both Personal Information and Site usage information, and use such information along with information obtained from other sources (including third parties) such as demographic information and updated contact information. We or our service providers may also use your information to assess the level of interest in, and use of, the Site, our e-mails and our other messaging campaigns both on an individual basis and in the aggregate.

 

How we may share Personal Information and Site usage information with others?

We may share the information we collect on the Site with others for a variety of reasons.

  • with our affiliates and other third parties (e.g., pre-screened organizations that have offerings we think may interest you, wedding vendors, retailers, and other third party partners) for their marketing and other purposes, unless you tell us not to by following the instructions in the Opt-in and Opt-outsection above;
  • including limited personal information, such as your first name, first initial of your last name, wedding location & date, wedding theme and any other wedding related information with our affiliates and other third parties (e.g., pre-screened vendors that have offerings we think may interest you, registry program participants, retailers, and other third party partners) for their marketing and other purposes;

  • in connection with a corporate change or dissolution, including for example a merger, acquisition, reorganization, consolidation, bankruptcy, liquidation, sale of assets, or wind-down of a business.

In addition, we may share non-personally identifiable Site usage information (including aggregate data) with others, for their use, in a form that does not include your name or contact information.
