PRIVACY & SECURITY
At ARIANNE, we believe that your online shopping experience should be convenient, fun, and most of all, secure. While browsing our online store, you can rest assured that we have your security in mind, and as such we provide the highest level of secure payment processing available today. In conjunction with Shopify, we give you every assurance that your credit card information will be transmitted in a secure environment solely for the purpose of your transaction. Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

Depending on how you have configured your browser, when you shop at ARIANNE, a small file—a cookie —is stored on your computer. The cookie contains a unique personal identification code and is used to:
1) save your Shopping Bag and retrieve it the next time you visit the site.
2) personalize your experience by alerting you of features and information we think would interest you.

While using our Website, you may be asked to voluntarily share personal information, such as your name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone number. (Your credit card information is not stored on our servers.) We use this information to complete your transaction and to apply for access to certain special features and functions of the Website. If you choose not to provide requested personal information, you will not be able to use certain features of the Website nor will you be able to conduct transactions through the Website.
With any of the services on our Website, we may also use your personal information to contact and correspond with you and to respond to your inquiries.

ARIANNE does not share its users' information with other companies. When we use trusted third parties to act on our behalf—to perform such functions as fulfilling orders, delivering packages, processing credit card payments, or providing customer service—contractual or other appropriate means are used to ensure compliance by such third parties with this Policy and all applicable privacy laws.
Third party vendors, including Google, show your ads on sites on the internet.
CONTESTS, PROMOTIONS, SURVEYS
From time to time, we may run contests, promotions, or surveys. If you participate, you may be asked for your contact information, as well as additional optional survey information (for example, product preferences). Information from contest entries will be used to contact you if you win. We may also summarize survey information in a manner that no longer identifies the contest entrants for analysis, but will not share personal information from entries. All contests are subject to rules that will be available for each particular contest.
