Maintenance and Processing of Information
Your personal data may be stored, transferred and process in and to the United States and in other countries by our affiliates and/or service providers. The data protection laws in these countries may provide a lower standard of protection for your personal data than your country of residence. We take great care in protecting your personal data and have put in place adequate mechanisms to protect it when it is transferred internationally. We will transfer your personal data in compliance with applicable data protection laws and will implement suitable safeguards to ensure that your personal data is adequately secured by any third party that will access your information (for instance, by using the Model Clauses as approved by the European Commission).
If you have questions or wish to obtain more information about the international transfer of your personal data or the implemented safeguards, please send us an email.
Security Measures: Ana Maria Designs uses commercially reasonable measures to keep your personal data private and safe. We take appropriate physical, electronic and administrative steps to maintain the security of personal data we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. In addition, it is our policy to never send your payment card number via email. Our customer care center and stores operate over private, secure networks. Please note, however, that email is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting payment card information.
We use industry standard security technology in transferring information to process your orders. All payment card transactions should take place in protected areas of our Websites, which are designed to reduce the risk of any loss, misuse or alteration of the information collected. When you begin the checkout process, you should move into such a protected area. Once you've entered, the page address (URL) should change from “http” to “https.” Also, a key or a closed lock should appear in the lower right hand corner of your screen to notify you of this change. You should remain in this secure zone for the entire checkout process. Please check that you are still in this protected area when you type in your payment card details.
Despite our best efforts, the transmission of data over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we use commercially easonable means to ensure the security of information you transmit to us, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be intercepted by third parties. We may, however, prosecute any unauthorized or fraudulent transactions to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Other Websites: Our Websites may include links to third party websites whose privacy practices may differ from ours. If you provide personal data to any of those third parties, your data is governed by their privacy policies, and we encourage you to read those privacy policies carefully before providing your personal data.
Our Website is not intended for children. We do not intentionally collect any personal data from children under the age of sixteen, and will dispose of any such information if we become aware that it has been provided to us.
