SERVER STATISTICS
We collect general statistics to track user trends on our Site. These statistics include hits to our server, the types of browsers used to access our Site, page views, and navigational patterns. This type of information helps us track “where” our users are coming from so that we can target strong demographic areas and determine the most effective ways to communicate with our users. In connection with this analysis, HELEN ORTIZ also uses devices called “web beacons” to help us identify when emails sent to you have been received and read. We may also collect IP addresses and other information in order to prevent the introduction of viruses and hackers into the Site. 

PROTECTION OF OUR INFORMATION
We use reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to help us protect the security, integrity, and confidentiality of data stored on our system. The Site encrypts your credit card number and other personal information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology to provide for the secure transmission of the information from your PC to our servers. Except as specified in this Privacy Policy, we use commercially reasonable efforts to limit access to your personal information to the employees, officers, third-party contractors, and strategic partners of HELEN ORTIZ who need the information in order to perform their duties. While no system is 100% secure, we believe that the measures we have implemented minimize the risk of a security breach to an appropriate level given the types of information involved. 

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
HELEN ORTIZ will use your personal information in an effort to improve your shopping experience and provide you with information, products or services that we think may be an appeal to you. For example, we may share the personal information you provide to us as well as demographic information and purchase history we collect with strategic partners, such as suppliers, in order to select products that we believe may be of interest to you. Within that framework, any of our employees, third-party contractors or strategic partners who are given access to your personal information will be contractually obligated to keep such information confidential and to use the information only to provide the services we ask them to perform for you and for us. Except as set forth above, HELEN ORTIZ does not rent or sell personal information to anyone, including third parties intending to use such information for direct marketing purposes. We may provide aggregate statistics, which do not include personal information, about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related Site information to reputable third-party vendors.
