How We May Share or Disclose Personal Information We Collect
Avenue Store may disclose PI to service providers, consultants, professional advisors and contractors who perform services on our behalf. At times, we may seek to validate the PI we have collected via an audit by a third party designed to determine the accuracy of and/or to update the information collected. We may also combine data that we collect online with data collected offline (such as through purchases made through one of our catalogs), or with data provided by other parties.
We reserves the right to release PI concerning any visitor when that visitor is believed by Avenue Store to be in violation of any published guidelines for the use of the Site, or participates (or is suspected of participating) in any illegal or potentially illegal activity. We also reserve the right to disclose PI to comply with applicable law, in response to civil subpoenas or discovery requests, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is required to protect the rights, property, safety or security of Avenue Store, our visitors or the public, or to respond to an emergency.
We also may share PI with third parties for marketing and other business of Avenue Store and our affiliates. For example, we may share PI collected from our visitors and customers with our affiliated or related companies, including our parent company, affiliates, subsidiaries, or our parent company’s other subsidiaries (collectively, our “affiliates”). We also may share PI with unaffiliated third parties, such as our marketing or business partners. For purposes of this Policy, “unaffiliated third parties” are third-party individuals or entities not affiliated with us or our affiliates. If you do not wish for us to share your PI with unaffiliated third parties for third-party direct marketing purposes, please refer to the paragraph below entitled “Correcting/Updating Your Personal Information and Preferences.”
In the event that we sell or otherwise transfer to a third party assets related either (a) to the Site or (b) to one or more of our businesses, divisions or affiliated companies, we reserve the right to also transfer any and all information (including any PI) associated with the Site and/or any business, division or affiliated company to such third party.

This type of request may be made no more than once per calendar year. We reserve our right not to respond to requests submitted other than to the mailing address specified in this paragraph
How We Protect Your Personal Information
To help protect the security of your PI, Avenue Store seeks to use security technology and procedures, which are reviewed periodically. We use encryption technology and Secure Socket Layers (“SSL”) in all areas of the Site where your personal and account information is required. This means that the PI you submit to us via our Site is encrypted by your computer, and then decrypted again on our side. If your browser does not support SSL or if you are unable to establish a secure connection due to a company firewall, please call us at (800) 000-0000 to place your order by phone.
In addition, your personal account information, and transaction history are kept behind a firewall. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the “Contacting Avenue Store ” section below.
