Cookies and How We Use Them
A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. It may contain information (such as a unique user ID), which allows us to recognize your computer (but not specifically who is using it) upon entering our site.
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act took effect on April 21, 2000. This national law imposes certain requirements on Web sites directed at children under 13 that collect information on those children, and on Web sites that knowingly collect information on children under 13.
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 on our Web site, and our online promotions are restricted to entrants who are at least 18 years old.
No one under the age of 13 should submit any personal information to this or any other website without the consent of a parent or guardian.
Online Account Registration
To make online shopping faster and easier, you may register with maison-close.us. As a registered customer, you only have to enter your shipping addresses and billing information once; they will be securely stored with us for your future use. Using your name and a password of your choice, you may access your account online at any time to add, delete, or change information.
If you are using a public computer, we strongly encourage you to log out at the conclusion of your session. Your information will still be stored with us but it will not be accessible to anyone else from that computer.
You will receive promotional e-mails from us only if you have asked to receive them. Each time you receive an e-mail from Maison Close, you will be given the opportunity to stop receiving them.
If you choose this option, we will stop sending you e-mails. Please note, however, that some e-mail promotions are prepared well in advance, so you may continue to receive offers after you have chosen to discontinue this option. We appreciate your patience in giving us time to carry out your request.
