1. "E-mail this to a friend" policy
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose than to help you let friends know about us, and to see which are the most popular pages visited.
The Four Poster Bed Company may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
The Four Poster Bed Company will use information gathered from our enquiry forms only to help to the process of each order for each customer. This information will not be shared, unless it is in the interest of the customer (i.e. giving contact information to our upholsterer), and even then the customer will be informed of any information passed on to another party.
Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
The Four Poster Bed Company tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. The Four Poster Bed Company does not break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
