We offer the ability to access Minted by logging in with or connecting via a third party social network or email service, including but not limited to Facebook or Facebook Connect (each, a “Third Party Platform”).

When you place an order, we collect your phone number, email address, billing and shipping address and credit card information, so that we can fulfill your order and ship your product or product samples. We may also collect information you provide as part of selecting your preferences, including within your account settings, and commercial information, such as the Minted products you have purchased or offered for sale.
If you participate in Minted as an artist, in addition to the above we may collect your signature and education for purposes of offering and promoting your products on the Minted platform and applying your signature to manufactured products, and your financial information for purposes of paying commissions or reimbursements.

The information we receive will depend on the policies and your account settings with the Third Party Platform.

Service Providers and Business Partners: We also collect information from partners such as service providers (including data licensors, analytics providers, and payment processors), public databases, our marketing partners, and advertisers. This may include information about your interests, demographic data, purchasing behavior, and your activities online (such as websites visited and advertisements viewed).

Parties You Authorize, Access or Authenticate:
Other Sharing of Personal Information
You may specify an email address for the recipient if you wish for us to send them an email notification 'gift message.' The shipping recipient will not be opted in to any marketing distribution lists without their permission.
We may share personal information in order to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We also may share personal information when we believe it necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.
We may share your information with users and guests invited by you to use services that you have requested including without limitation Online Invitations and Wedding Websites.

It is important to understand that with some companies or online partners, your information must be shared in order to receive services you have requested through the Website. Opting out of sharing your information for marketing purposes will not prevent your relevant information from being provided to shippers when you order products for delivery or from other sharing for non-marketing purposes. Similarly, this will not prevent us from sharing information as and to the extent it is combined or aggregated (in a non-personally identified manner) or otherwise analyzed by us or our service providers.
Furthermore, if we choose to buy or sell assets, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party, and we would share personal information with the party that is acquiring our assets. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

You can opt in or out from future communications of special offers and new product information, or you can unsubscribe by following instructions contained in the messages you receive or by contacting email@example.com.
