What do we collect?

It allows us to provide you with easy access to our products and services, with a particular focus on the items and programs that may be of most interest to you. For more information as to why we collect personal information, please see the section below entitled: "How do we use your personal information?"
Your personal information also allows us to communicate with you about special offers, promotions, and other marketing programs and news that may be of interest to you.
Why? It helps us help you.
(a). Information that you provide to us
As a general matter, you can browse in our stores and on our websites without submitting your personal information to us. However, there are a number of circumstances in which you may need to provide us with your personal information. The most common of these circumstances include:
For your convenience, we have provided a summary description of each of these circumstances below.
It's pretty obvious that when you fill out a form, we're collecting information. Usually, you can't proceed if you don't.
Making a purchase or placing an order
When you make a purchase or place an order in our stores or place an order online without an account, you may need to submit personal information to us.
If you buy something, we need to know who you are.
Creating an online account
You can create a password-protected NaughtyAnnie.com account to complete your online order, order digital content ("Digital Content"), to save items to an online Wish List, or to join a amasoriginals.com online interactive community (Interweb Neighborhood). To create any of these accounts, we will ask you to provide us with personal information. If you use your online account to make a purchase or download, we will use the personal information stored in your account and/or require you to input additional personal information, such as payment information, to complete your order or download.
Creating an account requires that we store your information so you can get back in.
Enrolling in our Member loyalty program
When you enroll in our Member Loyalty program, we will ask you to submit personal information as part of your Member profile. The personal information you submit is held in a Member database. When you use your membership, the transaction information for your purchase, including personal information, is copied and stored in the Member database so that we can administer the Member program.
Signing up means telling us who you are.
Submitting a customer review, a list, or other user-created content or participating in Ama's Originals programs
You may choose to submit an online customer review or to participate in Ama's Originals programs. Because any information you choose to post with your customer review or in the programs will be available on the Internet, we can make no assurances that others will not use, or misuse, that information.
Some parts of the site require you to provide your identity.
Posting a comment, or participating in an online interactive community
You may choose to submit or post information as part of a blog or online interactive community. Because any information you choose to post will be available on the internet, we can make no assurance that others will not use, or misuse that information.
While comments and posts are part of our site, the rest of the internet can see some of them. We can't control the rest of the internet.
Signing up for Ama's Friend Newsletters and Alerts
You may choose to sign up for free Ama's Friend Newsletters and Alerts filled with recommendations and reviews for products, books, and more. If you do so, we will ask you to provide your e-mail address in the Ama's Friend Preference Center.

To remove yourself from these mailings, email our Customer Service Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tell-a-Friend needs to know who to "tell" from.

In order to best help you, we need to know who you are.

Part of running our business is to now who opens and/or reads our emails.
