FASHIONDIG is committed to protecting your privacy. We have created our privacy
policy in order to demonstrate this commitment and to let all visitors know
exactly how we will use the information you entrust to us. Our privacy policies
are designed to help us serve our customers while maintaining strict security
standards. For each visit to our website, we automatically recognize your IP
address, but not your e-mail address unless you provide it to us. Please read
THE FOLLOWING DISCLOSES THE INFORMATION-GATHERING AND DISSEMINATION PRACTICES
Company Not Responsible for Third Party Offers
FASHIONDIG contains links to Affiliates, and other related Internet websites,
resources and sponsors ("Links") of FASHIONDIG, who will offer
products and services that may be of value to you. Selection of one of these
Links will redirect the User off of FASHIONDIG to a third party. Transactions
that occur between the User and the third party are strictly between the User
and the third party and are not the responsibility of FASHIONDIG. Because
FASHIONDIG is not responsible for these outside resources or their privacy
policy or content, the User should direct any concerns regarding any external
link to its website administrator or webmaster.
Protection, Security, and Integrity of Your Information on
FASHIONDIG treats our data as assets that must be protected against loss and
unauthorized access. We use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, a secure
server, and security protocol to safeguard the information you provide to us.
The SSL protocol allows us to receive information that your Web browser
encrypts and transmits to us. SSL encryption technology is designed to prevent
the unauthorized viewing and downloading of your order information.
You must make sure your browser supports SSL protocol (usually indicated by the
appearance of a "closed lock" somewhere on your browser.) If your
browser does not support SSL protocol, when you attempt to submit secure
information (e.g., submitting information on a secure order form,) you will
usually receive a warning indicating you are being directed to a secure
Be aware, if your browser does not support SSL protocol, your browser will not
prevent you from submitting information. The most recent versions of Netscape
Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer can support a secure connection and
can be downloaded for free from the Netscape and Microsoft websites
respectively. FASHIONDIG is not liable for secure information submitted
using a browser that does not support SSL protocol.
Internally, we restrict access to personally identifiable information to
employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. We
review our Web security, and our security policy and practices with employees
on a monthly basis. We take seriously the issue of safeguarding your privacy
online, and we exercise great care to secure your personal identifiable
To provide you with an increased level of security, access to your personal
information is protected with a password you select in some website areas such
as the Message Boards, Links, Shop Administration Control Panel, and Auctions.
We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone.
FASHIONDIG will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited
communication (including unsolicited correspondence such as letters, phone
calls or e-mail messages.)
Although no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100%
secure, we will do our best to ensure the security of your information on our
systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, FASHIONDIG
and its affiliates cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you
transmit to us.
