COLLECTING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
You can visit any of our web pages without providing any information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
There may be times (such as when you purchase or order a product, attend an event, subscribe to a service, or to participate in contests, sweepstakes or promotions, etc.) at which we ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, email address, credit card information, birth date, gender, due date, etc. We also maintain a record of your online product purchases.
The decision to provide any of this information is completely up to you. If you choose not to provide the information we request, there is a chance you will be unable to purchase products, or access certain events, services, offers and content on our web site.
USING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
The information that you provide is used for internal purposes such as order confirmations, newsletter subscriptions, analyzing market trends, informing you of offers, events, services, contests, deals, etc. from So Chic Media.
There are circumstances where we establish a business relationship with another entity that we deem as trustworthy and relevant to our organization and participants. In such cases we might share and cross-reference information, including the information you provides about yourself that will enable such persons or entities to contact you regarding products and services that may be of interest to you.
You will only receive information directly from these partners if you have opt-in to do so. Often times, you will be given the chance to opt-in at our events when entering to win prizes and through links on our website and in our e-newsletter. We may also disclose your personally identifiable information when we believe the law requires it.
UPDATING YOUR PREFERENCES
You will only receive emails from us if you have opted-in to receive them. If you do not want to receive emails or communications from us in the future, please email sochicmedia(at)gmail (dot)com or opt-out on our e-newsletter.

EVENT CANCELLATION POLICY
We understand that sometimes circumstances keep you from attending an event which you have registered. Please notify So Chic Media on or prior to the “Must Cancel By” date for each event if you are no longer able to attend.
Full refunds are available for reservations canceled in writing on or prior to the “Must Cancel By” date. If your cancellation falls between the “Must Cancel By” date and 24 hours prior to the start of an event, guests are welcome to transfer their ticket to another guest, however a refund will not be provided. If you fail to cancel within any of these time frames and simply do not show up for an event, your money will be forfeited and a refund will not be provided.
Gift Bag and Giveaway Policy
In order to receive a gift bag or be entered to win a giveaway or raffle prize, you must be in attendance at the event you are registered. All gift bags will be distributed at the end of each event and you must pick up the bag in person. If you have to leave an event prior to this time, please make arrangements with So Chic Media for a friend to take your gift bag. You must notify So Chic Media yourself in writing that someone will pick up the bag on your behalf. Gift bags will not be saved. Guests must be present at the event to win any giveaway, promotional items or raffle prizes. If you are not present, there will be a re-draw and your winnings will be forfeited.
