  • If required to comply with a subpoena or warrant issued or an order made by a court, person, or body with jurisdiction to compel the production of information, or to comply with the rules of a court with jurisdiction relating to the production of records. If we receive a formal request to disclose your Personal Information in connection with a legal action, we will attempt to contact you about it, if permitted by law, via the email address you provided during registration before we respond to that request.

How we protect Personal Information

Emmo Home and its Web Manager employ physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to help protect the confidentiality and integrity of Personal Information, and to reduce the risk of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of Personal Information. When Personal Information is sent to our service providers, we require, in our contracts with them, that they protect all Personal Information in a manner consistent with the principles articulated in this Privacy Policy.

If you choose to contact Emmo Home through the Website, you should be aware that any information transmitted electronically via the World Wide Web may not be secure. Emmo Home assumes no liability for the loss of any information or any damage that may result from the loss of such information that you transmit to us via the World Wide Web.

Monitoring

Emmo Home reserves the right to monitor and review, from time to time, any information transmitted or received through the Website or email communications, for quality assurance and other purposes. We reserve the right to censor, edit, remove, or prohibit the transmission or receipt of any information that Emmo Home deems inappropriate or in violation of our Terms of Use. During monitoring, the information may be examined, recorded, or copied by us.

Cookies

When you visit the Emmo Home Website we send one or more cookies (a small file containing a string of characters) to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our Website, Products, and Services by storing user preferences and tracking user trends, such as what people purchase. Cookies do NOT contain any personally identifiable information, but rather information that is useful for our Website in customizing its appearance for you. Nearly all modern Websites use cookies to enhance and make more efficient your experience. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Some features of our Website, however, may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

Web Beacons

Our Website may contain electronic images known as web beacons, which are also called single-pixel gifs. These images allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web beacons are NOT used to access your personally identifiable information but are used to compile aggregated statistics about our Website usage.

Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.

Links

THIS PRIVACY POLICY ONLY APPLIES TO THIS WEBSITE. For your convenience, the Emmo Home Website provides links to other websites. When you click on one of these links, you are leaving our Website and entering another website. We do not exercise control over the websites displayed as search results or links from within our various services and we are not responsible for such third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data, or solicit personal information from you. You should carefully review the privacy statements of any other websites you visit, because those privacy statements will apply to your visit to such other websites.

User Communications

When you send email or other communications to Emmo Home, we may retain those communications in order to process your order(s), answer inquiries, respond to your requests, and improve our products and overall service.

Changes to the Privacy Policy and Changes in Ownership

We may change or supplement this Privacy Policy from time to time in our sole discretion. We may also undergo a change of ownership. We will post an appropriate notice of changes to the Privacy Policy and changes in ownership on our Website. Changes to the Privacy Policy will apply to the information collected from the date we post the revised Privacy Policy on the Website, as well as to existing information held by us.

If Emmo Home becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or substantially all of its assets, we will provide notice before Personal Information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

If we decide to change this Privacy Policy in a material way or if we seek to collect, use, or disclose Personal Information for purposes other than those to which consent has been obtained, we will obtain the necessary consents required under applicable privacy laws, unless otherwise required or permitted by law. If any proposed change is unacceptable to you, you may request that we remove your Personal Information from our records.
