When you place an order or register on our site, we require you to provide
your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, and credit card
information (when ordering products only). We may also require you to
create a username and password. This allows us to keep a user profile
so that we may customize preferences for each user, as well as provide
a more efficient method for users to submit information to americanblinds.com
when placing an order or a request for product information. When you order
a product and/or register, we also give you the option of submitting personal
information such as your phone number, gender, date of birth, and/or other
information. This allows us to know you better and possibly tailor any
specific features, promotions, or other notifications to you. When registering
with our site, you are also given a choice whether you would like to be
on our mailing list, or whether you would prefer to opt-out and not receive
such mailings. When you enter a contest or other promotional feature at
our site, we may again ask for your name, address, username and password
so that we are able to better administer the contest and notify winners.
We utilize third-party companies to perform certain functions for us.
Examples include order fulfillment, package delivery, the sending of emails
and direct mail, data analysis, marketing optimization programs, credit
card processing, etc. These third parties are given only the data that
they need to perform the function that they are engaged in, and are not
allowed to use it for any other purpose. We may be required to disclose
your personal information to third parties to comply with applicable laws,
subpoenas, or court orders.
We do make our customer postal mailing list available to other reputable
organizations from time to time. You may opt out of this process by going
to our registration section.
In the event of a merger or acquisition, your information may be transferred
to the successor entity.
