  1. How We Disclose Your Personal Information

Petite Plume may disclose your personal information in the following ways:

  • With Service Providers: We provide access to or disclose your information with select third parties who perform services on our behalf. They have access to your information to perform these services but are prohibited from using your information for other purposes. They provide a variety of services to us, including data storage and/or processing, billing, sales, customer service, order processing and shipping, security, fraud prevention, payment processing, marketing and advertising, and legal services. 
  • With Marketing Companies: We may provide your information to marketing companies to support our marketing and advertising programs. Depending on your location, more detail is available below under the heading Regional Privacy Notice Supplement.

We may, in our sole discretion, edit feedback, testimonials, or user content for length, clarity, or to align with our submission guidelines. 
  • In Connection With Events.  If you participate in a special event (for example, a promotion), we may disclose your information to those organizations participating in the applicable event or with whom we host or provide the event. These other organizations do not typically use your information for any other purpose other than to manage the event. In some cases, these organizations may send you promotional materials regarding their products and services. Please see the section below titled “Third Party Sites and Applications” for details on how these other organizations use your information.
  • For Protection of Petite Plume and Others: We may disclose the information we collect and maintain about you if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access, retention or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process (e.g., a subpoena or court order); (b) enforce this Privacy Notice, or other contracts with you, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties such as rights of privacy or intellectual property; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; and/or (e) protect the rights, property or personal safety of Petite Plume, its agents and affiliates, its users and/or the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection, spam/malware prevention, and similar purposes.
  • With Partners: We may disclose your information to partners such as distribution, joint marketing or affiliate program partners pursuant to our agreements with those parties. For example, we may offer collaborations with other retailers, we may work with wholesalers, and we may offer affiliate programs in connection with our Services.
  • For Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge, or partner with other companies. In such transactions (including in contemplation of such transactions), user information may be among the transferred assets. If a portion or all of our assets are sold or transferred to a third-party, customer information (including information processed in accordance with this Privacy Notice) may be one of the transferred business assets. If such transfer is subject to additional mandatory restrictions under applicable laws, we will comply with such restrictions.
  • As Aggregate/Deidentified Information: From time to time, we may disclose aggregate/deidentified information about use of the Services, such as by publishing a report on usage trends. The disclosure of such data is unrestricted.
  • For Intracompany Transfers: We may disclose your information to our affiliates and subsidiaries to operate our business, for example, if we establish a presence in a country outside of the United States, we may disclose your information to our subsidiaries and affiliates in such other countries.

  1. Retention of Your Personal Information

We may retain your personal information for so long as necessary for the purpose it was collected. For example, we may retain contact information to maintain our internal financial or transactional records or to communicate with you about our relationship. The length of time for which we retain information depends on the purposes for which we collected and used it, requirements of applicable laws, the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the information, the resolution of any pending or threatened disputes, and enforcement of our agreements. 

If we deidentify your personal information (so that it can no longer be associated with you and thus is no longer considered personal information under applicable laws), we may retain this information for longer periods.

  1. How We Protect your Personal Information

Petite Plume takes technical and organizational security measures to protect the information provided via the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. The safety and security of your information also depends on you.

Do not share your password with anyone. 

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we use measures to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Services. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures.

  1. Children’s Privacy

The Services are intended for general audiences and not for children under the age of 18.
