By visiting SMGcollections.com, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice. What Personal Information About Customers Does SMG Gather? The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at SMG. Here are the types of information we gather.

Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you,improving our stores, and communicating with you. Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses SMG. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit Web sites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at SMG if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist. E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting,we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from SMG if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your account to reflect this wish. Information from Other Sources: For reasons such as improving personalization of our service (for example, providing better product recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. We also sometimes receive updated delivery and address information from our shippers or other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily. Does SMG Share the Information It Receives? Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only with the subsidiaries SMG, Inc., controlled and as described below.

Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with our affiliated businesses, for example our print media counterparts. In some cases, these businesses operate stores at SMG or sell offerings to you at SMG. In other cases, we operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines jointly with these businesses. You can tell when another business is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that business. Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but we do not grant them permission to use it for other purposes. Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of SMG customer son behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such offers,please adjust your account to reflect this wish. Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that SMG, Inc., or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets. Protection of SMG and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our rules and regulations for use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of SMG, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information. How Secure Is Information About Me? We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using the latest encryption software, which encrypts information you input. We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer. Children SMG does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use SMG only with involvement of a parent or guardian.

INTERNET RISKS SMG strives to use the best possible technology currently available in hosting, supporting and otherwise maintaining its Website, smgcollections.com.

Such interference may also jeopardize our user’s confidential information. SMG, nor its subsidiaries are liable for any such interference that is beyond the control of SMG, or that may occur despite SMG’s best preventative efforts. SMG will be subject to the same basic government regulations as any other e-commerce provider. The Internet, although not currently extensively regulated by federal, state and local authorities, is expected to see more regulation in the future. Legislation affecting the online commerce industry is under constant review for possible enactment. Numerous departments and agencies, federal and state, have considered issuing rules and regulations binding upon online Internet commerce in general. Some of these future regulations may affect SMG and its ability to perform. In such an event, SMG shall not be liable for nonperformance that is beyond SMG’s control.
