This section provides an overview of the kinds of personal information we ask for and how we use it. Details of these practices can be found following the overview:
You can request products or services from Parliament Concierge by phone, fax, email, or the online request form system. In some cases, you also have the option of requesting and paying for the service entirely online. The request form asks for personal information that identifies who you are, such as your name, email address, and shipping address, as well as financial information, such as your credit card number and the card's expiration date.
Occasionally, we may give you the opportunity to participate in a survey online or by email to help us adapt our services to the expressed needs of customers. If you decide to accept, we may ask for demographic information, such as your age and ZIP code, but typically we will ask for no personal information, such as your name and email address.
Occasionally, we may announce a special promotion or offer on the Parliament Concierge Web site or by email, if you have elected to receive emails. If you choose to participate, we may ask for certain information that identifies who you are, such as your name and address, so that we can follow through on the promotion.
When you use Parliament Concierge services to send a gift to someone else, we ask you to give us the necessary personal information of the recipient so that we can fulfill your request.
When you contact us by email, we automatically receive your email address, as well as any contact information that is included in the signature at the bottom of the email.
All the information we collect through the Parliament Concierge Web site, or in connection with products and services requested through Parliament Concierge, is owned by Premiere Concierge, Inc. We capture and store information from the Web site in the following ways:
Like most Web sites, we automatically gather certain types of information and store it in log files each time you visit Parliament Concierge. The system retains the information only for the duration of the session, and your individual identity remains anonymous unless you place an order. Session information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, the type of Web browser you use, your Internet service provider, your computer's operating system, a date/time stamp for your visit, and click stream data (indicating the Web pages you navigate to).

On rare occasions, we may send you an email announcement related to our Web-based services, but only when it is necessary to do so-for example, if access to the Parliament Concierge Web site is temporarily closed for maintenance. Because service-related communications are not promotional, you will not be able to opt out of receiving them.
The following explains the types of information we share with others, and who these other parties are:
Aggregated information includes general data about such things as the number of people who visit our Web site, what sections they visit most, what ZIP codes they live in, and whether they're male or female. Unlike personal information, such as your name and email address, aggregated information does not allow us to identify individuals. We may share aggregated information about our customer base as a whole with existing or potential Parliament Concierge clients, and our network of service providers, such as the spas, restaurants, ticket services, and other service providers we work with to arrange products, services, and special offers for Parliament Concierge customers.
