Your address book and wishlists, located in the My Account pages, are your personal storage space. We do not use the names of the people in your address book or people with whom you share your wish lists, promotions, or other content, to send unrelated email promotions or catalogs by mail. You are responsible for obtaining consent from recipients for these messages we send on your behalf.
You can opt out of receiving promotional communications from us at any time by following the instructions provided in those communications or by contacting us via the methods listed at the end of this policy.

To enhance your shopping experience, the MZ Wallace site may contain links to other sites. Those websites will have their own policies on privacy that you may wish to review. MZ Wallace has no responsibility for these linked websites.
We may collect information about your browser, including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about how you browse our website.
If you do not wish to have a cookie on your system, you can set your browser preferences to refuse them. In order to disable cookies, please consult your browser’s help section for instructions.
We also use "pixel tags" (sometimes called “Internet tags”, "web beacons" or "clear GIFS"), which are tiny graphic images, on our website. Pixel tags help us analyze our customers' online behavior and measure the effectiveness of our website and our advertising. We work with service providers that help us track, collect, and analyze this information.
Pixel tags on our website may be used to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the features you use, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with the website. This information may include your device’s IP address, your browser type, your operating system, date and time information, and other technical information about your device.

MZ Wallace is concerned about the privacy of young children and we do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from a child under 13. MZ Wallace does not sell products for purchase by children, and all children’s products we sell are for purchase by adults only. No part of our website is designed or intended to attract anyone under the age of 13. If you believe we have collected Personal Information concerning a child under the age of 13, please contact us at email@example.com to let us know and, after reasonable confirmation, we will delete the child’s Personal Information.
The security of your information is very important to us. We take reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative safety measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. This includes limiting access to our database servers.
We use the 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your online order information. SSL technology encrypts your order information to protect it from being decoded by anyone other than MZ Wallace.
Once you enter the checkout page, your computer will begin communicating with our server in secure mode. You can tell that you are in secure mode because the "http" in our web address will be replaced by "https." Depending on the browser, you will see either a padlock or a solid key in the address bar or lower section for the browser window. Only browsers that use the 128-bit Secure Socket Layer technology are able to order through the MZ Wallace web site. If your browser does not support SSL, we recommend that you download an updated version.
While we implement these and other security measures on this site, please note that 100% security is not always possible.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides consumers who are California residents with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. If you are a California resident, this section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Right to Information. Subject to certain limits, California residents may ask us to provide them with the following information for the 12-month period preceding their request:
- The categories of Personal Information we collected about them;
- The categories of sources from which the Personal Information was collected;
- The business or commercial purpose for collecting Personal Information;
- The categories of third parties with whom we shared the Personal Information;
- The specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about them (also called a data portability request);
- If we disclosed Personal Information for a business purpose, a list of the disclosures for a business purposes and the Personal Information categories that each category of recipient received.
Pursuant to a temporary exception in the CCPA, we do not provide these information and data portability rights for Personal Information reflected in business to business communications.
Right to Delete. California residents also have the right to ask us to delete any Personal Information that we have collected about them, subject to certain limitations as set forth under CCPA.
To submit a request for information or a request to delete, California residents may contact us in any of the following ways:
Call us at 888-601-4699
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before providing your Personal Information and before deleting your information. Only you or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf may make a verifiable request related to your Personal Information. If you want to authorize someone else to make a request on your behalf, please complete this form, have it notarized, and provide it to the person you are authorizing to submit a request on your behalf. They will be asked to provide the form when they submit your request. We do not charge a fee to respond to your request unless it is repetitive (more than twice in a 12-month period) or excessive.
Pursuant to a temporary exception in the CCPA, we do not provide these deletion rights for Personal Information reflected in business to business communications.
Right to Opt Out of the Sale. California residents who are 16 years of age or older have the right to direct a business not to sell their Personal Information (“right to opt out”). MZ Wallace does not sell Personal Information so you do not need to opt out with us.
Right to Nondiscrimination. California residents also have the right to not be discriminated against if they exercise their privacy rights under California law. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time. We currently offer: (1) a 15% discount off a consumer’s next full-price purchase if the consumer provides his/her email address to subscribe to our email communications; and (2) discounts, sweepstakes or drawings to consumers who enter the sweepstakes or drawing or who complete a consumer survey.
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and other countries’ privacy laws provide certain rights for data subjects. A good explanation of them (in English) is available on the website of the United Kingdom’s Information Commissioner’s Office.
As noted above, this Privacy Notice is intended to provide you with information about what personal data MZ Wallace collects about you and how it is used. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to confirm that MZ Wallace is processing your personal data, or to have access to the personal data MZ Wallace may have about you, please contact us at email@example.com.
You may also request information about: the purpose of the processing; the categories of personal data concerned; who else outside MZ Wallace might have received the data from MZ Wallace; what the source of the information was (if you didn’t provide it directly to MZ Wallace); and how long it will be stored. You have a right to correct (rectify) the record of your personal data maintained by MZ Wallace if it is inaccurate. You may request that MZ Wallace erase that data or cease processing it, subject to certain exceptions. You may also request that MZ Wallace cease using your data for direct marketing purposes. In many countries, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority if you have concerns about how MZ Wallace processes your personal data. When technically feasible, MZ Wallace will—at your request—provide your personal data to you or transmit it directly to another controller.
Reasonable access to your personal data will be provided at no cost to MZ Wallace’s customers and others upon request made to MZ Wallace at firstname.lastname@example.org. If access cannot be provided within a reasonable time frame, MZ Wallace will provide you with a date when the information will be provided. If for some reason access is denied, MZ Wallace will provide an explanation as to why access has been denied.
