Information We Collect
If you are a consumer or advertiser who chooses to purchase or receive products or services from B&E, you may be required to provide us with certain personal information, such as: your name, address, e-mail address, credit card number, home phone number, and business address and phone number. You may also provide us with your age and wedding or other event date, at your option.
We may collect and analyze anonymous site traffic information in aggregate, but we do not combine anonymous information about your site visit with your personal information. We may also collect information about your visit to the Site through the use of "cookies." Internet cookies are small text files placed on your computer, which contain information about you that your browser saves and sends back to the website when you visit again. Cookies make online shopping convenient and can also enable marketing communications. B&E does not combine information received from cookies with any personal information collected about you.
How We Use and Share Your Personal Information
We use the personal information you provide to us to: complete transactions with you, provide customer service, provide you with information about our products and services, and send you administrative communications. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website, new services, and special offers we think you will find valuable. We may send you information by e-mail, mail or telephone.
As necessary, we share your order information with trusted third-party companies that assist us in managing our operations. These companies will not use your personal information for any purpose than to provide administrative services to B&E.
B&E may share your name, address, phone number and e-mail address with vendors that advertise on the Site, for their own use only, to offer you products or services that we believe would be of interest to you. The vendors with whom we share such information have agreed not to transfer the information to anyone else. We work with our vendors to protect the privacy and security of your personal information.
This website may contain links or advertisements that will take you to websites not owned or controlled by B&E. Please be aware that B&E is not responsible for the privacy practices or information-gathering practices of other sites.
We may disclose any of your personal information to comply with lawful government requests, investigations or court orders, as determined in our sole discretion.
In the event that B&E is sold, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, personally identifiable information may be one of the transferred assets.

We will implement your opt-out request as soon as possible and no later than 45 days following the date of the request.
Steps We Take to Safeguard Your Information
To the extent that the Site accepts credit card information, such as from vendors and advertisers, the Site uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt credit card and billing information while it is being transmitted to B&E. We use VeriSign™ as our SSL provider. When using Netscape Communicator and Internet Explorer, clear visual symbols will let you know whether or not they are in secure mode. Look for a locked key or closed padlock in to indicate a secure mode. Also, in secure mode, the address will begin "https://". The "s" stands for secure. After your order is received, we protect all of your private information, including your order, behind a network security system called a "firewall." Only select staff has access to this information, and then only enough to service your order.
Consumer payment transactions are completed using the PayPal™ service provided by PayPal, Inc. B&E shall have no responsibility concerning the operation of the PayPal service, and will not have access to the payment data transmitted to PayPal. For more information on PayPal, visit the company's website at www.paypal.com.
