Summersalt understands that your trust is our most important asset. We take the protection and proper use of your personal information seriously and are committed to protecting your personal information in our possession. In order to preserve your trust, we want you to understand what personally identifiable or personal information we may collect from you when you visit our design stations or our web site, how we use such information, and the choices you have regarding our use of this information.
What information does Summersalt collect?
During the shopping and purchase process, Summersalt collects and stores information from our customers at several different points in the purchase process including, without limitation, registration information such as name, email, address, style and usage preferences, sizing and purchase information such as shipping address and shipping preferences; and financial information such as a credit card number and expiration date.
In addition, Summersalt collects information through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and third parties to create a profile of our customers. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual customers that details their registration information, sizing, purchase history, wish list, and financial information, product and customer service preferences, and other relevant data. Consequently, collected information may be tied to the customer's personally identifiable information.
As mentioned above, our website uses "cookies." A cookie is a small data file that websites often store on your computer's hard drive when you visit their websites. A cookie may contain information (such as a unique user ID) that is used to track the pages of the websites you have visited. Information gained from "cookies" may be shared with business partners as mentioned below who perform services on our behalf.
You can disable cookies at any time by using your browser options; however, if you turn off cookies, we will not be able to track your order or enable you to make a purchase from our website. In addition, we will not be able to recognize you as a registered user to allow you access to your account information.
How is the information used?
The customer profile is used to tailor a customer's visit to gosummersalt.com, to make garment suggestions that will likely fit, flatter, and please the customer, to make future purchasing easier, to direct pertinent marketing promotions to them, and to produce and ship orders to the customer. In addition, customers will occasionally receive communications on Summersalt products and services via email or mail. Out of respect for the privacy of our customers, we present the option to not receive these types of communications.
Will Summersalt share personally identifiable information with anyone?
Summersalt is the sole owner of the information collected via our stores and gosummersalt.com. Summersalt does not sell, trade, or otherwise disclose personally identifiable information unless the customer is notified in advance, except as described below.

These and other business partners do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. Summersalt may also disclose personally identifiable information when required by law, when protecting our safety or property, or when protecting the safety or property of others.

How does Summersalt protect personally identifiable information?
Summersalt takes every precaution to protect our customers' information.
