Byronesque automatically receives and records nonpersonal information on our server logs from your browser as well as through other analysis of the Site. We may also collect information using cookies, web beacons or similar technologies, or through third parties using similar technologies. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a website that is saved on your hard drive by your computer’s browser. Cookies help us remember when you return to our Site. Cookies also hold information the Site may need to personalize/enhance your experience and to gather statistical data, such as which pages are visited, what is included in your shopping cart, the Internet provider’s domain name and the addresses of the websites visited immediately before coming to and immediately after leaving the Site. However, none of this information is associated with you as an individual. It is measured anonymously and only in the aggregate. The information in the cookies lets Byronesque trace your ‘clicktstream’ activity (the paths taken by visitors to our site as they move from page to page). This enables us to better serve our customers by revealing which portions of our Site are most popular. You can always disable cookies on your browser.
You have the opportunity to sign up for a paid subscription. To sign up for a subscription, you must provide personal information, including a credit or debit card number, your name and your billing address. By submitting this information, you are also authorizing Byronesque to store such information until such time at which you elect to change or delete it.
There are two types of subscriptions: (1) Membership, and (2) The Back Room. A membership subscription provides you with access to exclusive editorial content, first look on new offered, private sales and a personal shopper service. A subscription to The Back Room is a paid service offered to designers, which supplies access to exclusive editorial content for designers, the opportunity to learn more about our retailers’ unique vintage items, first look on new offered items and a personal shopper service.
If you ever use a public computer to log in to your account or subscription, we strongly encourage you to log out at the end of your session.

WHEN WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We also may use and share nonpersonally identifiable information with third parties. Additionally, we may take personally identifiable information and de-identify it and share it in a de-identified or aggregated form with third parties, advertisers and/or business partners in order to analyze Site usage, demographics or interests, improve our products or services, improve our user experience or for similar purposes. We will not re-identify such data and we will ask our contracting parties to agree to keep the data in its de-identified form.
Compliance with Law: We also may share your information when in response to a subpoena, legal order or official request, when we believe you have acted in violation of the terms, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected illegal activities, fraud or potential threats, or exercise legal rights or defend against claims, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Site, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights, to protect the rights, property or safety of Byronesque or others, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
Byronesque uses reasonable administrative, physical and electronic security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. In addition, it is our policy to never send your credit card number via email. Please note that email is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information.
We use Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the industry standard in transferring information to process your orders made on the Site. The SSL encrypts, or translates, your order information into a highly indecipherable code, which is processed immediately. All credit card transactions occur in a secure area of our site, to protect you from any loss, misuse or alteration of information collected. When you have finished shopping and begin the checkout process, you will move into the secure area of our site. Once you’ve entered, the page address (URL) will change from http to https, to let you know you are in a secure area. You will remain in this secure zone for the entire checkout process.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the transmission of data over the internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we use reasonable means to ensure the security of information you transmit to us, we cannot guarantee that third parties will not intercept such information. Any such transmission is at your own risk.
The Site is intended for use by individuals over the age of 18 and not for children. Byronesque does not knowingly collect information from children under 18 on the Site. If you are under 18, you should not submit any personally identifiable information on the Site.
