The personal information that you provide must be true, accurate and complete, and all registration and account details (where applicable) must contain your real name, address and other requested information. You are responsible for keeping your information current and accurate. We may combine information we collect from and about you online with information we collect from and about you through other means. We may also combine your information with information we learn about you from other sources, such as account update notifications.

Please note that when you delete your account information on the Website, or terminate your use of the Services, we may retain your information for a reasonable period of time afterward for the purpose of recordkeeping, account management and fraud prevention activities.

In some instances, we may ask for contact information for people other than yourself including, for example, e-mail addresses of friends to whom you send gift cards, e-cards or a link to the Website, or the mailing address of someone you wish us to notify about the Services. The information we collect is used to send the notification or information you request and/or to inform the recipient of Opening Ceremony updates and opportunities. Such contact information is not shared with any other organizations, other than as provided in this Privacy Policy.

We may also use third-party website analytics tools (such as Google Analytics) that collect information about visitor traffic on our Website and any mobile applications. The information collected by such third-party tools may include gender, age, and prior activities on the Internet. This information is used for internal purposes by Opening Ceremony to provide better technical support and may also be provided to others for support, marketing, research or other business purposes as described in this Privacy Policy. We treat all information of the type referenced in this paragraph as non-personal, unless required by applicable law to do otherwise. Additionally, any unsolicited information that you provide to us shall be deemed to be non-confidential, and we shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose and distribute such unsolicited information to others without limitation or attribution.

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

• To respond to your requests for Services and to keep you informed of updates about your account

• To personalize your experience with the Website or the Services

• To improve the Website and the Services

• To improve customer service

• To process transactions

• To provide you with targeted offers, promotions and advertisements

• To send periodic emails

Once you create an account with Opening Ceremony, you may be included in our mailing list, and we may send you updates, newsletters, correspondence and other materials of this type. If you do not want to receive these communications, follow the instructions provided in the “Opting Out” section below.

“Opting Out” of Receiving Communications from Us

If you no longer want to receive our e-mails, offers, updates on Services, or other communications, please send an email to unsubscribe@openingceremony.us or follow the “unsubscribe” instructions at the bottom of each email or communication. Please note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain correspondence from us, including messages relating to your use of the Services.

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.

We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers’ database, only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, who are required to keep the information confidential.

Unfortunately, no transmission of data over the Internet, and no system for storage of physical data, is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for hackers or other third parties not under the control of Opening Ceremony to intercept or access private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your personal information, Opening Ceremony cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit or otherwise provide to us. Any transmission or other provision of information is done at your own risk.

Do we use cookies, web beacons or other tracking technologies?

Yes. Our Website may use cookies (which are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer/hard drive through your web browser that enables the site’s or service provider’s system to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information), web beacons (which are used to transmit information back to a web server), or other tracking technologies, to improve and personalize the Website, as permitted under applicable law. For example, use of cookies helps us remember your password, and process requests you make through the Website.

We may also work with third parties (such as Google Analytics) that use cookies, web beacons or other tracking technology to collect information about your visits to the Website and/or other websites, and to serve advertisements to you based on that information. In particular, we may use third party cookies for the purpose of retargeting advertisements, meaning that after you visit our Website, you may receive future advertisements based on your activity on our Website. The majority of web browsers accept cookies, but the “help” menu on your browser should give you options for preventing, accepting, or receiving notice of cookies should you wish to do so. Please be aware that if you block cookies, some Website functionality may not be available to you. Alternatively, you may opt out of interest-based advertising and retargeting by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt out page posted at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/.

Do we disclose your personal identifiable information to outside parties?

We may share your personally identifiable information with trusted third parties who assist us in operating the Website, providing the Services, conducting our business, or servicing you, or to our affiliates or agents, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. Examples include fulfilling requests for Services, delivering packages, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. We also may share your personally identifiable information with affiliated businesses that we do not control but with which we engage in joint and co-branded offerings, and entities with which Opening Ceremony may merge or which may acquire all or substantially all of Opening Ceremony’s assets, as customer information likely will be one of the transferred assets.

Additionally, we will share personally identifiable information if we have a good faith belief that: (i) access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, legal process (such as a court order or subpoena), request by law enforcement or governmental authorities; (ii) such action is appropriate to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use, or other policies of our Website or Services, including any investigation of potential violations thereof; (iii) such action is necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues associated with the Website or the Services; or (iv) such action is appropriate to protect our rights, property or safety, or the rights, property or safety of our employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, other users of the Website, other users of the Services or others.

Finally, we may share your name, address, email address and transactional information with marketers, promoters or advertisers, as permitted by law, unless you instruct us not to by following instructions in the Opting Out section above.

Do we receive any information from outside parties?

Examples of information we receive from other sources include updated delivery and address information from our carriers or other third parties; account information; purchase or redemption information; and information from search results and links, including paid listings (such as Sponsored Links from Google).

Content and information that you submit through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or other online platforms may appear on our Website through feeds from those platforms. We are not responsible for the dissemination of content or information from, or the privacy practices of, any such platform.

Third party links

It is important to note that the Website contains links to sites other than the Website and that those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as Opening Ceremony. These sites may send their own cookies to you, and may collect data and make uses of it that Opening Ceremony would not. If you use these links, you will leave the Website. These third parties and their websites are not under our control. We do not examine or evaluate these websites and we are not responsible for their content or operation. By providing links to these websites, we do not approve, warrant or endorse, or otherwise make any representation about them, their owners or operators, or the goods or services that they offer and/or sell, and we do not assume any related responsibility or liability relating to any of the foregoing. You should exercise your own judgment in evaluating and using these websites. When you link to these websites, you become subject to their terms and conditions of use and privacy policies. You understand, acknowledge and agree that all access to and use of any such third party website by you shall be at your own risk.
