Internet Advertising Programs
We use third-party service providers to serve advertisements (banners or links) on our behalf across the Internet.
In addition to the information about your visits to our website, our service providers may also use the information about your visits to other websites to target advertisements for products and services available from American Kettle.
Third-Party Platform Advertising
We may also use platforms provided by companies such as Facebook and Google to offer you interest-based ads. These platforms allow us to personalize the ads that we display to you. We do not share any of your personal information, including your shopping history, with these platform vendors. American Kettle may convert your email address into a unique value which can be matched by our partner company with a user on their platform to allow American Kettle to serve you interest-based advertising. Although we do not provide any personal information to these platform vendors, they may gain insights about individuals who respond to the ads we serve.

Social Media Interactions
American Kettle invites you to socialize and share your fashion inspiration, finds and purchases with your friends using Social Media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. If you choose to use these tools, you may be sharing certain profile elements, including your comments. This sharing is subject to each social media program's privacy policies. We also use Facebook Social Plugins to allow Facebook to share information and friends' activities with its members while they are on our website. For example, Social Plugins allow Facebook to show you and your friends' "Likes" on our product pages if you are logged into Facebook while shopping at AmericanKettle.com. American Kettle does not receive or control any of the content from Facebook Social Plugins. To remove a Facebook "Like" through American Kettle, place your cursor in the "grayed out" Like button and click on the "X" that appears. This removes the "Like" from your Facebook Page, as well as from the American Kettle website. You can also delete comments made while at AmericanKettle.com from your Facebook Page.
We respect your need to be able to access and update the personal information that you have provided to us. If you have registered online, you may access and update your personal information at any time by logging into your account. We may request certain personal information to verify the identity of the individual seeking access to their personal information records.
Links to Other Websites and Services
You may come in contact with websites, emails or texts that try to lure you into providing personal information with an offer such as the American Kettle gift card. American Kettle does not sponsor these offers nor are we affiliated with the promotion originators. If you become aware of any potentially fraudulent activity on a website or in an email or text, please forward the information to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can follow up. We take these matters, and the protection of our customers' sensitive information, very seriously.
This policy replaces all previous disclosures we may have provided you about our information practices. We reserve the right to change this policy, and to apply any changes to information previously collected, as permitted by law. If there are material changes to this policy or our information practices change in the future, we will notify you by posting the policy changes on our website.
