Privacy Policy

Our website address is:

The Marble respects the privacy of visitors to our website. This online privacy policy explains the use and collection of information from you by The Marble ("we" or "us") through your use of our websites. This privacy policy applies to any information you may provide to us through other means (for example, over the telephone or by mail). By visiting any of our websites, you agree that your visit, and any dispute over our online privacy practices, is governed by this privacy policy. As we continue to develop our websites and take advantage of technologies to improve the services we offer, this policy will likely change. We therefore encourage you to refer to this policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current privacy policy.


We may ask you to provide us with certain personal information, including your name and email

Cookies. We also collect information on usage patterns and preferences as visitors navigate our websites. To help make our sites more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we invoke a standard feature of browser software, called a "cookie," to assign each visitor a unique, random number that resides on your computer. The cookie doesn't actually identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our sites. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through a purchase, for example), we will not know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply. A cookie cannot read unrelated data from your hard drive. If you are shopping on our sites, we may use cookies to help us keep track of your shopping cart. In addition, we may use cookies to track the pages on our site visited by our users. We can build a better site if we know which pages our users are visiting and how often. Of course, you can set your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of some features enjoyed by other visitors to our sites.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

IP Addresses. Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer's connection to the Internet, including your IP address, when you visit our sites. (Your IP address is a number that allows computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data -- such as the web pages you view). We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our sites to the interests of our visitors, and to measure traffic within our sites. For example, if you are shopping on our sites, we may use your IP address to help identify you and your shopping cart. Your IP address does not identify you personally to us. But we may use reverse IP address inquiry and release information about our visitors as described in "Other Disclosures" below.

Other Methods of Collecting Information. Our web pages may contain electronic images (called "single-pixel GIFs" or "web beacons") that allow us to count users who have visited particular pages or to access certain cookies. We may use these tools and other technologies to recognize which pages users visit, and which links they click. These features are also included in our promotional emails and newsletters so that we can learn which messages have been opened and acted upon. We may also be able to verify your online purchases from us or from third party sites that have agreed to share such information with us.


Linked Web Sites: Of course, our sites include links to plenty of other websites, and provide access to products and services offered by third parties whose privacy policies we do not control. When you access another website or purchase products or services or conduct other transactions through our websites, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you're visiting or the provider of such products or services.

Statistical Information. Much of the information we collect is in the form of aggregated statistics, such as the traffic that visits various pages within our sites, and the habits and preferences of our audience. Such aggregated information does not include any information that would identify you personally. We may use such aggregated information and disclose it to third parties as we choose.

Legal Disclosures. We may occasionally release information, including personal information, about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law, or to respond to potential government or legal inquiries, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our sites. As our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that a portion or all of our website, is acquired by another company, information on our visitors would be among the transferred assets.


All information gathered on any of our websites, including your personal information, is stored within a secure database operated by us or by a contractor on our behalf. For secure commerce transactions, we will transmit your personal and billing information using secure server software (SSL) encryption, the industry standard today. Encryption scrambles your credit card number and other personal information. However, as effective as encryption technology is, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We generally direct our products and services to individuals over the age of 18.

Communications from The Marble: We may send free newsletters and other promotional information to select customers from time to time.

To opt-out of emails, you may click on the “Unsubscribe” link in the emails.
