Information We Collect
SAMIE collects a variety of personally identifiable information about users of our Web Sites in order to ensure an enjoyable and seamless online shopping experience. The term “personal information” as defined by SAMIE does not include “aggregate data.” Aggregated customer information – for example, a report on how many people visited the Web Sites at a given day – is used to understand customer trends and needs to refine our existing products and services and to consider new product and service offerings.
SAMIE Web Sites may be visited anonymously. To enhance your experience, we will only collect information provided to us: your name, billing address, shipping address, telephone number, email address, and/or credit card number. Such information is collected when using services on our Web Sites, purchasing a product, participate in promotional events, or create an account on SAMIE Web Sites. In some cases, such as gift purchases, we may collect information about someone other than you, including the recipient’s name, shipping or mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address. When requesting an order to be shipped to a third party recipient, your name, contact information, and message may be included in communications with the recipient. Information regarding third party recipients are not used for marketing purposes.

While we understand the importance of protecting the privacy of children, SAMIE is a general audience service available visitors of all ages. We do not knowingly collect personal information of children and individuals under the age of 13, as outlined by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
