We collect standard information about furnitureacademy.com users such as IP addresses, browser type, operating system, what you searched for, referring and exit pages, the dates and times of visits, and other site usage behavior (“Site Visitation Data”). Site Visitation Data is used to administer the site and provide general statistics regarding the use of the furnitureacademy.com website. We may also use Site Visitation Data to display advertising or send targeted email marketing messages you may find interesting and to suppress advertising that might not interest you.

Use of Personal Information
We may use the information we collect from you when you register, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the website, or use certain other site features.

We will treat your personal information as confidential, and we will not share your personal information with third parties without your permission, except in the limited circumstances described below.
We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as sending confirmation or other emails. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.
We may disclose your personal information when we reasonably believe that it is required by a law or legal process and to protect and defend the rights and interests of Furniture Academy, its affiliates, suppliers, or users. In the event Furniture Academy goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
We may use and disclose your aggregated usage information with others, in a form that does not identify any individual, to allow furnitureacademy.com and our advertisers to present targeted advertising to you. We may disclose to third parties, including advertisers and potential business partners, aggregated statistics that we develop from your usage habits, preferences, and history.

Please note that, even after you remove information from your profile or delete your account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others, it was otherwise distributed pursuant to your privacy settings, or it was copied or stored by other users. We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services.

Protection of Your Information
The security of your personal information is important to us.

We only provide articles and information. We never ask for credit card numbers. As such, we do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards. For the same reasons, we also do not use an SSL certificate.
Cookies and Tracking Technology
We may also use web beacons, clear gif technology, or action tags as mechanisms to collect aggregate site visitation data by tracking how users navigate to and through our website. We may also use this technology to track the delivery of HTML email messages. Data collected through this mechanism is not linked to personal information.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since each browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.
If you turn cookies off, some of the features that make your site experience more efficient may not function properly.

Protection of Children’s Privacy
We do not knowingly collect any PII from people under the age of 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 is attempting to submit this information, we will inform the minor that he or she is ineligible to do so. We will then remove this information from our records.
