Our Commitment to Privacy
At AmericanLeather.com, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important.

We never sell your personal information to third parties. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available via a link at the bottom of all pages of the site.
The Information We Collect

Collection of information allows us to build features and functionality that will enhance your experience. Personal information may be collected when you register or submit information on our site. We collect non-personally identifiable information through the use of general tracking information and click path tracking (cookie technology) described below.

In order to register or make requests to receive materials on or through our site, you may be required to provide personal information such as your name, address, email address, and phone number. If you correspond with us or submit comments or suggestions, your personal information may be included in our internal database system. We may also use this information to respond to your emails, questions, comments and suggestions, notify you if you have been selected as a winner of a contest or sweepstakes, provide customer support, send you emails about our site, new products, special deals or other similar matters. In addition, we may send correspondence to the email and/or street address you provide to us which may include newsletters and information about us.

As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Web beacons, also known as pixel tags and clear GIFs, are electronic images that allow a website to access cookies and help track marketing campaigns and general usage patterns of visitors to those websites. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information, such as cookie numbers, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page where the web beacons is placed. No personally identifiable information about you is shared with third parties through the use of web beacons on the site. However, through web beacons, we may collect general information that will not personally identify you, such as:
• Internet browser, operating system, IP address, date of visit, time of visit and path taken through the site.
• Internal use of web beacons. We may use web beacons internally to count visitors and recognize visitors through cookies. Access to cookies helps us personalize your experience when you visit the site.
• Email. We may include web beacons in HTML-formatted email messages that we send to you. Web beacons in email messages helps us determine your interest in and the effectiveness of such emails.
• External use of web beacons. We may also use web beacons externally. For example, we may report aggregate information about visitors, such as demographic and usage information, to our affiliates and other third parties. We may also include other company’s web beacons within the site.
Google Analytics and Other Tracking Software
We utilize Google Analytics and other tracking software to gather data on web users to all web addresses within the americanleather.com domain.
We do not gather or store personally identifiable information, such as credit card numbers. The types of non-personally identifiable information we gather may include data such as IP address, browser and device type, geolocation, and behavior on the website (such as pages you have visited, actions you have taken).
AmericanLeather.com has also enabled Google Analytics Advertising Features, which includes:
• Remarketing with Google Analytics
• Google Display Network Impression Reporting
• Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting
• Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data via advertising cookies and identifiers
We have enabled Google Analytics to collect data about traffic to our website with Google advertising cookies and identifiers. We do not facilitate the merging of personally identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any Google feature.
We also use Google AdWords for personalized advertising (formerly known as interest-based advertising). This allows us to collect data that facilitates more targeted advertising content delivery to users based on sites they have visited and behaviors they have taken on americanleather.com.
We use the information we gather to better understand how users find and use our website and to better understand how our products are researched. This data is not sold to other companies and does not contain personal information.
If you do not wish to have any anonymous / non-personally identifiable information to be collected about you through Google Analytics software, you can opt out of Google’s advertising tracking cookie
or use a browser plugin to opt out of all Google Analytics tracking software.
The Way We Use Information
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
You can register with our website if you would like to receive additional information as well as updates on our new products and services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website. For example, we can tell that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
Finally, unless you expressly give us permission to do so, or where we are required to do so by law, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, due to the open communication nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and us, and us and you will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. If such access occurs, we will do our best to rectify the situation, but we are not liable for the damages or effects of such breach.
Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never knowingly collect or maintain information from anyone under 13 years old, and no part of our website is structured or intended to attract anyone under 13.
California Privacy Rights
California law entitles residents to ask us for a notice describing what categories of personal information we share with third parties or with corporate affiliates for those entities direct marketing purposes. We do not provide any personal information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. If you want to request a notice or have any questions about our privacy practices, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How You Can Access or Correct Your Information or Opt Out
You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by contacting us at email@example.com. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.
When you register with us, or if you provide additional personal information through our site, we provide you with the right to “opt out” of receiving future communications from us for direct marketing purposes by indicating that you decline such communications.
If you’ve subscribed and later change your mind, you may withdraw your consent simply by clicking the link to “unsubscribe.” You may choose to have your name taken off of our email list after you have registered or provided additional information by emailing us.
