Privacy Policy

This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for http://www.thelittleumbrella.com.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
Any information collected on this site is kept private, secure, and confidential. We will only use your information to respond to you or to full an order request, as needed. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization other than as necessary to fulfill your requests; for example, to complete a transaction you initiate.

If you request, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy. Participation in any of these mailing lists is voluntary, and you can always opt out in the future if you change your mind.

Security
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. For your added security, we do not store any credit card information on our own servers. The Little Umbrella will *never* ask you for credit card information via email.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job have access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Updates
Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and all updates will be posted on this page.

If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us at hello@thelittleumbrella.com.

Disclosures

The Little Umbrella uses banner advertising, sponsored posts, and affiliate links on this website.

Banner Advertising
Banner advertising is located throughout the site, such as below the header, in the footer, and in the sidebar. Sometimes these ads are graphic/photographic, and sometimes they are text links. For most of these ad placements, The Little Umbrella will be paid a small commission when you opt to click on an ad or a link. For a few placements, we instead earn a flat rate per month regardless of whether or not it is clicked.

Sponsored Posts
A sponsored post is content we receive payment to place on the website. We are not big fans of sponsored posts unless we can use them to deliver you useful, original content we think you will enjoy. We decline most requests for sponsored posts as a result. Whenever we do accept a sponsored post, all such content is written and crafted by The Little Umbrella. These are our true opinions and experiences with the product or brand. We will never simply copy/paste content given to us by a sponsor. We take the responsibility to give you an honest and sincere opinion very seriously.

Affiliate Links
The Little Umbrella is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. The Little Umbrella uses Amazon Affiliate links in some areas of the website, such as in the "related items" box below posts, and in our "Favorites" section. An affiliate link is a link to a product which earns The Little Umbrella a small commission if you opt to purchase an item after you click it. We only earn a commission if you choose to make a purchase. We earn a commission on everything you purchase, not just the original item link you clicked. There is no additional cost to you.
