INTRODUCTION

PremierBride.com strives to make its content and features extremely useful to brides while protecting their privacy while they use our services. The following policy will explain how we collect information from you and how we use it.

REGISTRATION

PremierBride.com asks you to enter certain specific information when you register as a member because such information is necessary for the interactive nature of many of the features we provide and/or will provide in the future. We need to collect this information for fulfilling prizes, tracking/verifying compliance with PremierBride.com’s policies as well as federal, state, and local laws, and/or for editorial and feedback purposes. We also use this information to customize your PremierBride.com experience through the use of cookies (see COOKIES, below), which ensure that you need only enter this information once rather than re-entering it each time you use the site.

OPTING OUT

Information provided at the time of registration from a member who is 13 years of age or older may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by PremierBride.com and our affiliates or companies that have been prescreened by PremierBride.com. To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, we allow you to opt out of the following services:

  • receiving communications (through the mail and email) from PremierBride.com and its affiliates about new features and services
  • receiving communications (through the mail and email) about offers from third-party companies that offer a product or service that we think would be of value to you as a bride or groom.

COOKIES

Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you’re at our site. We never save password or credit card information in cookies, and the cookie by itself will not tell us or anyone else anything personal about you. The use of cookies is an industry standard you’ll find them at most major Web sites.

PremierBride.com has two primary uses for cookies. First, we use them to specify unique preferences like your preferred local area, to track vendors on your Premier List, and to maintain your personal Web page. Second, we use cookies to track user trends and patterns so that we can better understand and improve areas of the site that our users find valuable. While these activities depend on the use of a cookie, visitors to and members of PremierBride.com can easily disable cookies through their browser preferences.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is sent. Please note, however, that some parts of PremierBride.com will not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies.

OPEN ACCESS AREAS

Many areas of the site are available to users without requiring specific personal information from them: our honeymoon area and feature stories are such areas. Major search functions, including local vendor search, require a zip code to function properly; this information is not stored for non-registered users.

IP ADDRESSES

An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers-the computers that “serve up” Web pages-automatically identify your computer by its IP address.

PremierBride.com collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When visitors request pages from PremierBride.com, our server logs the visitor’s IP address. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.

Some services within PremierBride.com may display IP addresses along with your name. Please review each service prior to use and only use those that disclose information you are comfortable with sharing.

SPECIAL CASES

We may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) PremierBride.com’s rights or property, other PremierBride.com users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. PremierBride.com may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

AGGREGATE INFORMATION

PremierBride.com shares aggregate information about our users with member vendors, business partners, sponsors and other third parties. For example, we may say that x percent of PremierBride.com’s members are grooms, x percent are brides, and x percent are guests. This data is used to customize PremierBride.coms content to deliver a better experience for our members.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

Users should be aware that when they are on PremierBride.com they could be directed to other sites outside our service that are beyond our control. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information.

INDEMNITY

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless PremierBride.com, its officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against all claims, actions or demands, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising from your use of this Web site or our Content or your breach of these Terms and Conditions. PremierBride.com shall provide notice to you promptly of any such claim, suit, or proceeding and shall assist you, at your expense, in defending any such claim, suit or proceeding.

DISCLAIMER

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While PremierBride.com strives to protect its users’ personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

PremierBride.com’s policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond PremierBride.com’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.

SECURITY

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our users is of the utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, PremierBride.com can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

Your PremierBride.com account is password protected so that only you can access it and view the member information relevant to the account. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. PremierBride.com will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.

Remember to sign out of your PremierBride.com account and close your browser window when you have finished. This ensures that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet café.

YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS

By using this site, you signify your assent to the PremierBride.com policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our sites. Your continued use of the PremierBride.com site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.

If you have questions or concerns regarding this Web site’s privacy statement, you should first contact the company as follows: Privacy Policy Coordinator, PremierBride.com, 1716 Milwaukee St., Delafield, WI 53018; phone 262-646-3387 or email info@premierbride.com.
