Collecting Information

Meral Alabaz only collects personal information that is willingly provided, and then, only to provide our customers with the best possible product and experience. If you choose to sign up for newsletter or the Enthusiast Club, we will collect your name, email address, mailing address and your social media information if you choose to sign up using your social media account. If you choose to make a purchase on our online store, your payment information will be collected by our third-party credit card processor, Authorize.net, in order to complete your payment. We never share your personal information or use it for purposes other than what it was originally given to us and with those third-party providers that are required to complete your purchase. We do believe you have a right to know about information that we collect, and how we use it.
