The Information We Collect and Retain
If you choose to log in and/or create an account, the information you enter that we will retain includes:
NOTE: At no time do we maintain financial information.
The primary purpose of creating an account is so that you may review your prior years' orders to insure you do not duplicate ornaments previously purchased. If you choose not to create an account, none of the information you enter is retained at all. We will only have a record of your order for the purposes of insuring prompt and accurate delivery. In this regard as well, no financial information is retained except the cost of the item(s) purchased, the cost of shipping, and the cost of any applicable tax.
Third Party Companies
We use third-party companies to handle credit card purchases, as do the vast majority of online retailers. Your financial information is received by us and sent to financial institutions via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. This is the most secure means of protecting your financial data.
Modifying or Deleting Your Personal Information
Your information, such as your email address, password or shipping address, can be easily modified or deleted entirely by logging into your account using the tab at the top of each page. As noted above, if you do not register for an account, none of this information will be retained by Russell Rhodes.
Technologies We and Our Third Party Advertising Partners Use
Russell Rhodes employs cookies to keep track of your activities on our site. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your device for record-keeping purposes. Session cookies expire when you close the browsers you used to visit Russell Rhodes. Persistent cookies remain on your device longer. We and our third party partners use both types of cookies to improve your experience on our site including making it easier for you to find what you’re looking for. Cookies also give us the ability to monitor, evaluate and improve our website’s performance. We use persistent cookies to track your activities on our website. Our Advertising Partners also place persistent cookies on your device when you visit our website in order to recognize you and provide you with advertisements that will interest you and potentially save you money. The cookies we collect do not directly identify you. In other words, they are never connected with the personal data you have provided to us. If it is found that any of our partners violate this policy, we will no longer work with them. You can delete cookies from your browser by following the directions provided in the browser “help” catalog. There, you will also be able to decline cookies from our site, but keep in mind that doing so may interfere with your use of the Russell Rhodes site.
Partnering with AdRoll to Show You Helpful Ads
When browsing Russellrhodes.com, as is the case when visiting most websites, the online ad network AdRoll may place anonymous cookies on your computer or use similar technologies to understand your interests based on your online activities. Again, your navigation on this website is never directly connected to you as a person. You remain anonymous. Our purpose in using AdRoll is to tailor the advertising you see to be relevant to you. It is possible to opt out of AdRoll and most others that use this type of advertising, including Google, by visiting this page. If you opt out, you might continue to see ads on webpages you visit, but the ads will not be generated by any company you opt out of and are less likely to be of interest to you.

Compliance with EU Requirements
The EU has additional requirements about data collection, and we are in complete compliance with EU law such as the EU’s e-Privacy Directive.
Join our Email List to Receive Discount Coupons
If you choose to, you can sign up for our email list where we will only maintain your name and email address. We send out a maximum of 2 emails per year offering coupons and other new product information. Your contact information is retained for that purpose and that purpose only. We never share with or sell your information to anyone. You are always offered the option of opting out of further communications from Russell Rhodes by choosing that option at the bottom of any email we send you from the mailing list you join.
In summary, all data obtained is either deleted after purchase, or maintained under the two circumstances above and only per your request. Any information you ask us to retain strictly prohibits and does not include any personal financial details associated with the payment process.
