Credit Card Policy

To simplify ordering and product fulfillment in the Party Earth Store, we request your credit card number, its expiration date and security code, and your billing and shipping address. We transmit this information safely over the Internet in encrypted form and store it on a secure server. This information is used only to bill you for and ship to you the PartyEarth.com products that you order on PartyEarth.com.

Cookies

PartyEarth.com employs cookies (small pieces of text stored on your computer) to recognize you and your access privileges. For example, we use cookies to allow you to log on to PartyEarth.com automatically without entering your ID and password each visit. Cookies also identify you and your preferences on our site. You may refuse to accept our cookies, but we will not be able to recognize you as a registered user, which will limit your access to the site.

IP Addresses

PartyEarth.com logs IP addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes.

Third Party Advertising

With respect to the ads appearing on PartyEarth.com, information about your visits to this site, such as number of times you have viewed an ad, is used to serve ads to you.

How We Use Your Information

We use your e-mail address to send you updates and newsletters periodically about new features, special offers and targeted promotional items available on PartyEarth.com. You may choose to not receive certain of these communications by so indicating in your user profile, or in response to one of our e-mails. Each communication will clearly explain how to opt out of future communications. Any demographic information that you voluntarily share with us is used to tailor PartyEarth.com to your interests. We also may share this demographic information with other companies with which we do business.

With Whom We Share Information

We share your personally identifiable information with intermediaries. These intermediaries use your information in connection with processing payments for online purchases and with delivery of e-mail to our registered users. We do not permit these intermediaries to use, store or retain this information for secondary purposes, unless they indicate otherwise in communications to you. From time to time we may allow some of our select partners to send you special promotional offers that we believe may be of special interest to you. You may choose not to receive these communications from our partners by so indicating in response to any of these communications, each of which will clearly explain how to opt out of future communications. You may also opt out of having your personal information shared with these third parties by sending a request to service@partyearth.com to deactivate your PartyEarth.com user account. If you do so, however, you will not be able to take advantage of many of our features, including the right to purchase items from our store; and your account may even be deactivated. We do retain the right to share and transfer all user information with a purchaser of our company or all or substantially all of our assets if that purchaser agrees to abide by the terms of this Policy.

Legal Disclaimer

We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform with the law or legal process or to protect or defend our rights or property.

Security

PartyEarth.com has security measures in place to help protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. All information is stored in a secure operating environment. When sending sensitive information across the Internet - including purchasing information such as credit cards - we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption via Authorize.net. Internally, all customer information is protected with multiple security checks. Employee access to the system is limited to the functionality necessary for each person's job. Relevant employees are informed of our security policies and their access to applications and data on our network.
