Our Commitment To Your Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy the following notice explains the information we collect, how it is used, how it is safeguarded, and a link to contact us if you have any concerns.
We have decided to comply with the newly passed European Union laws and regulations on Privacy, commonly referred to as General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR and our promise to you is to
- Provide customers with the notice of their ability to opt out of information rental, sale, or exchange with other marketers;
- Honor customers’ requests not to share their information with other marketers; and
- Honor customers’ requests not to receive mail, telephone, or other solicitations from our Company.
The policy below will help you to understand how we collect and use your information, how we protect it, and what your ongoing rights are relative to that information.
Information We Collect
We collect personal information about you in order to deliver the products and services you request and to help improve your shopping experience. We do this using lawful and fair methods. We strive to limit the amount of personal information collected to support the intended purpose of the collection.
In general, you can visit many of our pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
If you do opt in to various mailing programs, or elect to place orders through our websites and applications, then we may also collect information including your name, address, email address, telephone numbers, and credit card information.
This information is used to fill your order, contact you if there are questions about your order, and to send email with special offers. You may opt out of receiving our emails at any point in time by hitting the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email.
We do not sell, share, trade, or give away any personal information that we receive regarding our customers. Under certain circumstances, mostly regarding internet and credit card fraud, some information provided by customers may be given to law enforcement personnel. We will prosecute and assist in prosecuting internet fraud to the full extent of the law.
HOWEVER, IN THE CASE OF IDENTITY THEFT FRAUD WE WILL COOPERATE FULLY WITH THE AUTHORITIES.

How We Store Your Personal information
Please be assured that we use the utmost caution regarding the personal information you provide during the checkout process. Our website utilizes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your credit card information.
SSL encrypts your order information to avoid the decoding of that information by anyone other than AmericanSunglass. To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit your credit card information, please check your browser to see either an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or Location line of your browser during the order process.
Do We Allow Third Parties To Utilize Your Information
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google") to collect data that allows us to improve the functionality of our websites to make them more useful to you and easier to use.
We receive assurances from those third party analytics services that they will not collect or access any information that directly identifies you.
Our website may also contain links to other sites that are not under our control. These websites have their own policies regarding privacy, which we recommend that you read and review before visiting. We provide these linked websites only for informational purposes for our visitors and are not responsible for these sites.
