Vinylenvelope.com collects information from and about you in order to tailor our products to your needs and offer choices related to your interests.

A. Personal Information
Vinylenvelope.com obtains personal information from and about our users at several different points on the site.
- Registration for Membership
There are two kinds of visitors to the site: Guests (non-members) and registered members. All visitors have access to some portions of the site. We do suggest you register as a member. This feature asks visitors to give their individual and/or company contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to send you updates and announcements about our company and our products. We also request visitors who are registering to provide billing and shipping information. This information is gathered to make your shopping experience easier and less time consuming.
- Placing an Order
We request additional information from any visitor who decides to purchase a product on the site. While you are placing an order you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your order. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with you. When purchasing an item using a credit/purchasing card, your credit card information is not saved for security purposes, you will need to type it in each time you make a purchase.
- Tell A Friend
If you elect to use our "Tell A Friend" option to share a product with someone you know, you must be a registered member. While creating the email notification for your friend we will ask for your friend's name and email address. Vinylenvelope.com will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. We store this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. We will not contact your friend again unless they choose to register on the site. You or your friend may contact us at email@example.com to request the removal of this information from our database.
