How We Collect and Use Information

We collect the following types of information about you:

Information you give us directly:

We ask for certain information such as your username, real name when you register for our newsletter, or if you correspond with us. Depending on our interactions, we may also ask for your address and/or telephone number.  We may also keep any messages you send through the Service, and may collect information you give in User Content you post to the comments section of our website. We use this information to run, support, and offer to you the features and functionality of our Service. Your username and if you choose to show it, your real name, can be published publicly. Once published your username and / or real name may not be able to be removed.

Information we may receive from third parties:

We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you register as a customer on our Avon site, a third-party connection or log-in, such as, through Facebook Connect, by “following,” “liking,”  etc., that third party may pass certain information about your use of its service to Four Aces Mercantile. This information could include, but is not limited to, the user ID associated with your account (such as, your Facebook UID), an access token necessary to use that service, any information that you have permitted the third-party to share with us, and any information you have made public in connection with that service. If you allow us access to your friends list, your friends’ user IDs, and your connection to those friends, may be used and stored to make your experience more social, and to allow you to invite your friends to use our Service as well as give you updates if and when your friends join Four Aces. You should always check, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to Four Aces. You may also unlink your third-party account from the Service by adjusting your settings on the third-party service.

Analytics information:

We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools and services, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.

Cookies information:

When you visit the Service, we may send one or more cookies — a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters — to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets Four Aces help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Service), and allow us or our business partners to track your usage of the Service over time. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to show when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of our Service may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.  See Google’s privacy site to get more information about cookies and how to disable them.  If you do not reset your privacy settings, we will assume you consent to the installation of our cookies — yum.

Log file information:

Log file information is automatically reported by your browser or mobile device each time you access the Service. When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, the number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.

Device identifiers:

When you access the Service by or through a mobile device (including but not limited to smartphones or tablets), we may use, collect, watch and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers,” such as a universally unique identifier (“UUID”). Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Four Aces. A device identifier may convey information to us about how you browse and use the Service. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Service. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.

Location data:

When you access the Service by or through a mobile device, we may use, collect, watch and/or remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/ or longitude) or similar information about the location of your mobile device. Location data may convey to us information about how you browse and use the Service. Some features of the Service, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled. Commercial and marketing communications: We use the information we collect or receive, such as your email address, to communicate directly with you. We may send you emails containing newsletters, promotions, and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you will be given the option to opt-out or change your preferences. We also use your information to send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, buy and billing confirmations and reminders, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). You may not opt out of Service-related emails.

Use of certain service type information we collect about you:

We use or may use cookies, log file, device identifiers, location data and clear gifs information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the site; (b) give custom, personalized content and information; (c) to give and watch the effectiveness of our Service; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns; (e) diagnose or fix technology problems; (f) help you efficiently access your information after you sign in; (g) to provide advertising to your browser or device.

We will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside Avon and its group companies (including any parent, subsidiaries, and affiliates) without your consent, except as noted below:

Who we may share your information with: We may share your information with third-party business partners and Trusted Users for providing our Service to you. Third-party business partners will be given limited access to your information as is reasonably necessary to deliver our Service, and we will require that such third parties comply with this Privacy Policy or work under a similar privacy policy.

Who can see User Content: Any User Content that you voluntarily show for posting to the Service becomes available to the public and cannot be removed, except by Four Aces in its sole discretion. Once posted on Four Aces, User Content may not be removable from public view, as copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, on other sites that have republished us, or if other Users have copied or saved that information. If you do not wish your User Content to be available to the public, please don’t post it on Four Aces. Your username and if you choose to show it, your real name, will be published publicly. Once published your username and / or real name may not be able to be removed.

Who can see your IP address: If you post User Content on the Service while logged in, your IP address will be published with your User Content to attribute your contribution to the Service. A choice of Trusted Users with administrative powers on Four Aces have the ability to check IP addresses of users to cut abusive behavior. Any third-party service embedded on Four Aces such as an advertiser, video provider, social network or other third-party will also have access to your IP address.

Who can see your email address: If you enter an email address, you will enable communication from Four Aces and other Users. If you reply to users or take part in group Four Aces activities such as meetups, your email address will be shared with these users.

What happens in the event of a change of control:

We may buy or sell/divest/transfer the company (including any shares in the company), or any combination of its products, services, assets and/or businesses. Your information such as customer names and email addresses, User Content and other user information related to the Service may be among the items sold or otherwise transferred in these types of transactions. We may also sell, assign or otherwise transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, dissolutions, reorganizations, liquidations, similar transactions or proceedings involving all or a portion of the company.

Instances where we are required to share your information:

Four Aces will show your information where required to do so by law or subpoena or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement; (b) to enforce our Terms of Use or to protect the security, quality or integrity of our Service; and/or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Four Aces, our Users, or others. Sharing certain service type information we collect about you: We may share certain service type information, including information obtained through tools such as cookies, log files, device identifiers, location data and clear gifs (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.): (i) with our third-party business partners for the purposes described in the section above on “How We Collect and Use Information.” We may also aggregate or otherwise strip data of all personally identifying characteristics and may share that aggregated, anonymized data with third parties.

Ads on Four Aces:

We may also share certain information such as your location, browser, and cookie data and other data relating to your use of our Service with our business partners to deliver advertisements (“ads”) that may be of interest to you. Four Aces may allow third-party ad servers or ad networks to serve advertisements on the Service. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser or mobile device, the ads and ad links that appear on the Service, and will automatically receive your IP address when they do so. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, device identifiers, location data, and clear gifs, see above) to compile information about your browser’s or device’s visits and usage patterns on the Service and on other websites, and to measure the effectiveness of ads.

The above disclosures are meant to comply with all laws regarding privacy issues in the U.S., particularly “California Do Not Track Disclosures.” Any wording that a Judge or a Court decides does not comply with certain laws, can be severed from other compliant wording.  So in plain terms, one mistake in wording does not mean that the rest of the wording or terms are thrown out.

This site is meant to be viewed by residents of the United States and its territories or people who are using a computer that is physically in same.  Any use by residents of other countries is to be deemed for entertainment purposes and not subject to the laws of that specific country.

That sums up Four Aces’ Privacy Policy.  Web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice about the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party Web sites or online services, will be honored by Four Aces.  However, Four Aces is not liable if their “software” or the consumers’ “software” fails to properly operate and the tracking occurs.
