Information Ella+Mila Collects
You may browse portions of our Site without providing us with personally identifiable information. However, in order to access certain functions and features of the Site, or to make a purchase, Ella+Mila will collect "personally identifiable information" from you, including but not limited to your first and last name, postal address, email address, and phone number. Ella+Mila will collect personally identifiable information from you when you voluntarily give Ella+Mila the information, such as when you participate in contests or promotions, complete a survey, join our mailing list, register for an account on the Site, choose to submit testimonials, stories, photos, or the like to the Site, or otherwise communicate with the Site. Ella+Mila may also collect demographic information that you provide it via surveys, contests or otherwise, such as your zip code, age, or income level, as well as information about your knowledge of and satisfaction with Ella+Mila and Ella+Mila’s products.
Ella+Mila may also collect “non-personally identifiable information,” such as your IP address and browsing patterns. Ella+Mila uses IP addresses to help diagnose problems with its servers, to administer the Site, to help identify your shopping cart, and to gather broad demographic information. Ella+Mila collects such information from you by “passive” means, such as through the use of cookies, flash shared objects and other tracking technologies. Many Internet services deliver cookies to people who visit their websites in order to make their services more convenient and personalized. Ella+Mila may use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. Ella+Mila may also use a persistent cookie that stores your information to make it easier for you to login when you come back to the Site. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature.
The Site is not intended for use by children. Ella+Mila will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information submitted by visitors to the Site who are under the age of 13. If we learn that we have inadvertently gathered personally identifiable information from children under 13, we will attempt to notify such child’s parent or guardian and erase such information from our records, unless the child’s parent or guardian consents to our maintaining such information. We do recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves over the Internet.
