Know that we NEVER sell personal information to gain monetary perks.

This occurs when you buy from us and we put your name, order information, email address, and address in a marketing database. From there, other companies can pick up your information and send you advertisements for their services and/or products.
Note that, though we don't get any monetary perks, this process is still considered a business "sale".
Of course, you have the option to refuse this "sale".
You can send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also let someone else request to opt-out for you. However, we will deny any request from someone other than yourself to remove your info if he/she does not have written permission signed by you. This is done to protect your privacy.
After every 12 months, we will come back and ask if you want to put your personal information back on "sale".

5. Process Restriction Rights
If you want to stop the process of your personal information for certain reasons, you have the right to go to Groomsmen Gifts Mart and ask them to suspend it.
One reason for that is if you want to make sure your data is accurate. Or, you object to us using your data.

If there is no reason to hold your information, your data process will be restricted. However, we can keep some of your information that respects the restriction process.

As the authorized agent, you don't need a written and signed permission if you have a license. Or, if you are doing it on behalf of your child (he/she has to be minor, though).
How does the verification process work?
