Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
The Information We Collect
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the GayWeddings.com website. On some pages, you can order products, make requests, and register to receive materials. To process your request, we ask for information such as your name, address, email address and credit card information.
On some pages, you can submit information about other people. For example, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient’s name and address.
The Way We Use Information
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We offer gift cards by which you can personalize a product you order for another person. Information you provide to us to create a gift card is only used for that purpose, and it is only disclosed to the person receiving the gift.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive or communicate with you about our service to you. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
You can register with our website if you would like to receive our email newsletters. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you request to be added to our mailing list.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Third Party Advertising
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use non-identifying information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice or would like to opt out, please click here.
When shipping packages, we show the sender as Themis, Inc. or GayWeddings.com, though we do enlist the support of several manufacturers and artists whose return addresses might also be displayed on certain shipments. If you have any privacy concerns, please contact us so that we might customize your delivery to suit your wishes.
Photographs and Other Images
You may submit photographs or other images for inclusion on our website as part of our photo albums, forum, or blog. When you submit an image, either physically or electronically, you agree that GayWeddings.com may display the image both on our website and in other ways (electronic or printed). You are also certifying that you are the copyright holder of the image or are otherwise authorized to distribute the image, that you are allowing GayWeddings.com to utilize the image without any compensation, and that any individuals identifiable in the image have authorized their inclusion.
Copyright Release of Photographs and Other Images
If you are a professional photographer and do not have a model release or if you are not the copyright holder of the photograph you are submitting, please submit this release form before submitting your photographs.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
