How Adore Alma Collects Your Personal Information 

You may be asked to voluntarily provide your personal information to Adore Alma anytime you are in contact with Adore Alma, including when you purchase products or services from Adore Alma through retail stores or websites. In those circumstances, you can choose not to provide certain requested personal information, but then you may not be able to purchase products or services or access or use certain features of Adore Alma's websites.

For example, when you purchase products or services from Adore Alma (including at an Adore Alma retail store, or through an Adore Alma website), when you create or manage an account with Adore Alma (including a user account for an Adore Alma website), when you send us an e-mail when you register or subscribe for Adore Alma's newsletters or promotions, or participate in Adore Alma's promotions, sweepstakes, contests, or surveys, and when you contact Adore Alma Concierge, Adore Alma (or its service provider) may collect a variety of your personal information, including your name, date of birth, credit card and payment information, mailing and shipping addresses, e-mail address, phone numbers, and any other personal information you voluntarily provide.

Please ensure that you have the consent of other persons before you provide their personal information to Adore Alma.

Adore Alma may combine your personal information collected through various sources, including information collected at Adore Alma's retail stores and through Adore Alma's websites, and information obtained from other sources.

Adore Alma may use personal information to create non-personal information, as defined in the next section, and Adore Alma may then use, disclose, transfer, and retain the non-personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Non-Personal Information

Adore Alma may use, disclose, transfer and retain non-personal information for any purpose and in any manner whatsoever.

If non-personal information is combined with personal information, then the non-personal information will be treated as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

Adore Alma may also disclose your personal information as otherwise required by law, or authorized by law in connection with a legal investigation, or if Adore Alma reasonably believes the disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect and enforce Adore Alma's legal rights, interests and remedies or protect the business, operations or customers of Adore Alma or other persons (including detecting and preventing fraud and preventing violation of the terms of use that govern Adore Alma's websites).
