What Information Do We Collect?
For each visitor to our website, we collect browser information and other non-user specific information to support the operation of our website. You have the option to provide demographic information (such as income level and gender) to us. If you feel uncomfortable providing your personal information, no worries, you don't have to. However, we encourage you to submit this information so we can provide you a more personalized shopping experience.
When purchasing a product from us, we request certain identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, telephone number, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). We will only use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.
Creating Customer Accounts
When creating an account, you must first create a user name and password. During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to contact you about the products and special promotions on our site in which you have expressed interest. Your personal account information will NOT be shared with other third party companies.
Participating In Contests
From time-to-time, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).
Tell A Friend
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. AHa! Modern Living stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.
Your friend may contact us at remove[at]ahamodernliving to request that we remove this information from our database.
How Do We Use The Information We Collect?
We primarily use the information we collect to process and fulfill your orders, to notify you of the status of your orders, to improve the content of our Web pages, to contact you for targeted marketing, special product offers, and other information we believe might interest you. In every email, we will provide you with instructions on how to unsubscribe and avoid receiving future emails from us.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can email us at support[at]ahamodernliving.
What Is Our Email Policy?
Aha! Modern Living does not send unsolicited "junk" email (spam), or share your email with other organizations. We use email to communicate with our customers, to confirm product orders placed online, and to send information that a customer has requested. If you receive an unwanted email from us, you can simply reply to the request to not receive future emails or contact us at remove[at]ahamodernliving.
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request and to manage your account.

What About Cookies?
We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file.
We use session ID cookies to record session information, such as items that consumers add to their shopping cart or wish lists, and alert visitors to new areas that we think might be of interest to them when they return to our site. We set a persistent cookie to store your passwords, so you don't have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site, such as contests or surveys, will be limited.
