PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTION
In order to place an order through the website, you will be required to register and create an online account. During this process, you will be required to provide valid and up-to-date personal information, including but not limited to your real name, date of birth, phone number and e-mail address, as well as other personal information as applicable, such as shipping address, billing address and payment details (collectively "Personal Information").
Should you contact the Client Relations Centre by telephone, you may also be required to provide such Personal Information.

Any Personal Information you make available to HOWARD is done so voluntarily, with your knowledge and consent when ordering creations or registering for services from HOWARD. We will request from you information that is mandatory (required by us to fulfill your order and meet our legal obligations) and non-mandatory (which you can give to us, if you chose to). If you choose not to provide the mandatory information requested, HOWARD may not be able to respond to your request or activate your option choices.
