Privacy Policy

The security of your personal information is very important to American Sale. We never sell or rent your personal information to any third parties under any circumstances. We value your trust very highly, and will work to protect the security and privacy of any personal information you provide to us.

Collection and Use of Information

When you make a purchase in one of our American Sale stores, sign-up for our newsletter, or answer one of our surveys, you may choose to give us basic information: name, email address, mailing address, ZIP code, phone, and credit card numbers. This allows us to process your transactions more efficiently, and ultimately, to give you a higher caliber of customer service. We also add email addresses to our email list. When you visit our Web site, we may collect more information: your Internet service provider's address, the name of the Web page directing you, as well as your clicks and activity on our site. This tracking data helps us understand how to make our site more available and user friendly to our customers.

We also use information such as your name, email address, phone number and credit card information to contact you, respond to your inquiries, and send you special sale information and to process, deliver and receive payment for your purchases. In addition to using the information referenced above to fulfill your order, we also retain your name, address, email address and purchase information in our customer database. This information is used to track your order, respond to your inquiries and make subsequent purchases easier and faster.

By looking at your purchases in context with marketing demographics or with information from companies whose products and services you may be interested in, it helps our buyers and merchandisers continue to seek out products and designs you may find relevant and unique. 

Editing, Updating, Correcting and Deleting Information about You

For address corrections or to remove your name from our mailing list, please contact American Sale Customer Service Department at 1 877 FMLYFUN (1 877 365-9386) or Email Us.

Please be advised that since our newsletter and sales promotions may already be in process at the time of your request, it may take up to four to six weeks before all contacts cease. As a result, you may receive newsletters and sales promotions from American Sale during that four to six week period. In addition, when you purchase from us online, or when you choose to sign up for our newsletter, we may need to contact you via phone, email or mail to address questions or issues specific to your order, entry, etc., even if you have opted to not receive communications.

If you are not a registered user of http://www.americansale.com/ and no longer wish to receive our Special Offers email, simply unsubscribe. You can also use the Opt Out link in the email to unsubscribe. If you have previously asked to be removed from our email list, we will not sign you up for email updates if you place an order over the Internet. 

Protecting Children's Privacy

American Sale adheres to a strict privacy code regarding children and does not knowingly accept personal information from any child. If it is brought to our attention that a subscriber is under age, we will immediately remove all personal and identifiable information from our records in compliance with the Online Children's Privacy Protection Act of 1998. In addition, we will not disclose this information to any other companies. 


"Cookies" are small amounts of data that are stored on your computer. They find their way to your browser via a Web server. They sound friendly and helpful because they are. They flag information about your activity on our Web site. This information helps us improve our site and make it friendlier and easier to use. We never use cookies to save passwords, credit card numbers or other highly confidential information.

You can actually refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser options. However, if you turn off the option to allow cookies, you will not be able to log into your online account or add items to your shopping cart, which will prevent you from completing your order. 

Unique Password

To further secure your Personal Customer Information: We cross check an email address with the submitted password to validate access to any American Sale customer account.

We do not allow any email address to access more than one americansale.com account. When a new americansale.com account is created, we require you to submit an email address that is not associated with an existing americansale.com account.

We encourage you to use a unique password that is not easily determinable (e.g., don't use your name or street name). Keep your password and do not share it with anyone. Your password is the "key" to your account; anyone who gets this "key" can, along with your email address, gain access to your account.

If you forget your password, to gain access to your account you will need to know the email address you signed up with and have access to that email account. On the Account Sign in Page click on the Forgot your password? link and then type in the email address of the account you would like to open. A message will be sent to your email address with your password.

If you want to change your password, simply log onto your account and follow the instructions on the page headed "My Account." 

Remember to Sign Out

To further prevent unauthorized access to your account, remember that, after you sign in, you should sign out once you have completed your transaction, completed managing your account, or decided to step away from your computer. Anyone who accesses your computer after you have signed in but before you have either signed out or your session has timed-out can access your account. 

Credit Card Information Security

American Sale has taken steps to ensure the security of shopping on our Website. We use Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) to encrypt information before it travels on the internet. 

Who is GeoTrust?

GeoTrust is a Certifying Authority (CA). Certifying Authorities are used to ensure your browser is communicating with the authentic American Sale and not an imposter. When your browser connects to American Sale for secure transactions, your browser must be assured that it hasn't connected to an impostor pretending to be American Sale. Your browser, therefore, requires American Sale to authenticate itself before such transactions can proceed. To authenticate itself, our Website presents your browser with the proper credentials, called a certificate. When American Sale set up its secure Website, we obtained our certificate from Verisign, one of the most trusted Certifying Authorities in the world. As part of our application, we provided them with certain legal information about our organization, which they used to certify that American Sale is legitimate and should be certified.
