Information Collected. Unlike the Main Site, which requires users to complete a registration process in order to gain access, the Blog is publicly accessible without registration and is available for anyone to view. In order to post a comment on the Blog, you must first submit a user name and email address to us. Once you submit this information to us, you have opted in to receive email communication from us. We store your username and email address along with any comments that you post on the Blog.
We may use your personal information (including, if applicable, personal information we collected from you on the Main Site), in order to give you a more enjoyable and convenient experience and to help us identify and/or provide information, products or services that may be of interest to you. We use your personal information to support and enhance your use of the Blog and its features. In addition, the email address associated with your username when you comment on our posts may be used to notify you about new services or special promotional programs, or to send you offers or information. Email addresses provided to post comments may also be used as a customer service or policy violation contact mechanism. If you choose to comment on posts on the Blog through Twitter and/or Facebook, we do not get any access to your personal information from those sites.
We may permit certain trusted third parties to access your information in connection with their performance of services to maintain and operate the Blog and certain features on the Blog. For example, we may use third parties to host the Blog; operate various features available on the Blog; send emails; analyze data and provide search results and links.
Also, we may share your email address or personally identifiable or other information with our parent, subsidiaries, divisions, and affiliates. Rue La La is a division of Retail Convergence.com, LP.
Occasionally, we may provide email addresses to other companies whose products we believe may be of interest to you. In order to determine those products that we believe may be of interest to you, the information that you give us may be combined with other personally identifiable information (such as demographic information and past purchase history) available from our records, the Main Site and other sources.
We may transfer personally identifiable or other information as an asset in connection with a proposed or actual merger or sale (including any transfers made as part of an insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding) involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization, stock sale or other change in control.
We reserve the right to disclose information in order to comply with a subpoena, court order, administrative or governmental order, or any other requirement of law, or when we, in our sole discretion, believe it is necessary in order to protect our rights or the rights of others, to prevent harm to persons or property, or to fight fraud.
If you post a comment or use a bulletin board, chat room or any other publicly accessible area of the Blog, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected or used by any person for any purpose. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable or other information you choose to submit in these forums.
We use non-personally identifiable information in the aggregate, so that we can improve the Blog and for business and administrative purposes. We may also use or share with third parties for any purpose aggregated data that contains no personally identifiable information.
How We Protect Your Information
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. We follow reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of data stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.

We do not solicit any personal information from children. If you are not 18 or older, you are not authorized to post on the Blog. Parents should be aware that there are parental control tools available online that you can use to prevent your children from submitting information online without parental permission or from accessing material that is harmful to minors.
