We at Tie The Knot respect your concerns about privacy. This Privacy Notice describes the types of personal information we collect on our website, TieTheKnot.org (the “Site”), how we may use the information and with whom we may share it. The notice also describes the measures we take to safeguard the personal information. In addition, we tell you how you can ask us to (i) change or not use the personal information we maintain about you, (ii) withdraw consent you previously provided to us, (iii) refrain from sending you certain communications, and (iv) answer questions you may have about our privacy practices.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect personal information about you (such as your name, contact details and payment information). The types of personal information we may collect include:
- Contact information (such as name, email address, postal address, telephone number)
- Payment information (such as your payment card number, expiration date, delivery address, and billing address)
- Contact information for friends or other people you would like us to contact
- Other personal information contained in the content you choose to submit on the Site
In addition, when you visit the Site, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons. The information collected in this manner may include IP addresses, operating systems type, browser type, domain and other system settings. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. Through these automated collection methods, we obtain “clickstream data,” which is a log of content on which a visitor clicks while browsing a website. As the visitor clicks through the website, a record of the action may be collected and stored. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies or how to restrict or disable certain types of cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of our website.
We may use third-party web analytics services on our Site, such as those of Google Analytics. This service provider uses technologies, such as cookies and web beacons to help us analyze how users use the Site and which links they clicked on to arrive at the Site. The information collected by the cookies and web beacons (including your IP address) will be disclosed to this service provider, who uses the information to evaluate your use of the Site. To learn about opting out of Google Analytics, you may visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

- Operate, evaluate and improve our business (including developing new products and services; enhancing and improving our services; managing our communications; analyzing our products; performing data analytics; and performing accounting, auditing and other internal functions)
We also may use the information in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.
SHARING OF INFORMATION
We may share your personal information with service providers who perform services on our behalf based on our instructions. Examples of these service providers include entities that process credit card payments, fulfill orders, and provide web hosting and marketing services.
We may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law, regulation or legal process (such as a court order or subpoena), (ii) in response to requests by government agencies, such as law enforcement authorities, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity. We also reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or asset (including in the event of a reorganization, dissolution or liquidation). Following such a sale or transfer, you may contact the entity to which we transferred your personal information with any inquiries concerning the processing of that information.
You may contact us as described in the “How To Contact Us” section of this Privacy Notice, ask us to remove your information from our mailing lists or submit a request.
