SUPER-COUPONING: Don’t forget the fine print | Lifestyles



Jill Cataldo

Dear Jill, I was making a purchase from a store. There was a promotion on the webpage offering a 10% coupon for my next shopping trip if I purchased online with store pickup. I did this. After I went to the store to get my items, they said I did not qualify for the coupon because the fine print said the store pickup had to be paid in full online.

This store allows you to either pay for your store pickup online or pay in-store when you arrive. I thought because I had to go to the store in the first place, I would just pay when I got there. When I got there, they pulled up the webpage. It was true, buried in small text, that only orders paid for online would get the coupon.

The only reason I chose store pickup was for that coupon. I don’t think

Kamala Harris walked a fine line familiar to many women of color during the debate

In a vice presidential debate marked by at least some adherence to the rules, Sen. Kamala Harris found it necessary to ask Vice President Mike Pence not to interrupt her multiple times. She reminded him — sometimes with a hand up, crossing guard-style, other times with raised eyebrows — “Mr. Vice President, I’m speaking.”

At other moments as Pence spoke, Harris’ face flashed a catalogue of looks in his direction that seemed to communicate irritation, disbelief and distaste all at once, the kind of repertoire developed when one often cannot say everything one thinks.

Throughout, Harris worked to claim, then hold, new ground.

Harris, the first woman to serve as California’s attorney general, is the first woman of color to run on a major party’s presidential ticket and therefore the first to appear in a vice presidential debate. She arrived Wednesday with a complex set of challenges, expectations and demands.

Marla Aaron Evolves Her Utilitarian Approach to Fun And Essential Fine Jewelry In Her Newest Collection

I have interviewed many designers and listened when they spoke about their inspiration.  Although there have been may jewelers who cite industrial influences, Marla Aaron locked down the look with her first design directly cast from a hardware store carabiner  (a hook that mountaineers use to fasten one rope to another). Marla explains, “When I realized I could morph this simple shape into different silhouettes and sizes, I realized that other women would want them too.” This is the time, Marla didn’t realize would be an understatement. Marla developed a cult following with women who ‘wanted’, coveted and eventually bough them in a variety of incarnations.

Unless you have been living where there is no internet, phone, or mode of communication with the outside world, you will have heard of Marla Aaron and her original take on the her ever expanding utilitarian objects

The fine, issued by the Hamburg Data Protection Authority – aka HmbBfDI – under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, represents the largest privacy fine to have ever been issued by a German regulator, and centers on illegal workplace surveillance at a service center in Nuremberg.


Stockholm-based Hennes & Mauritz AB – better known as H&M – operates 5,000 stores across 74 countries and employs 126,000 people.

Fashion Retailer Privacy Fine Points The Way For Pandemic Worker Monitoring And Profiling

Yesterday’s landmark €35M data privacy fine imposed on fashion retailer H&M by the Hamburg Data Protection Commissioner might be dismissed as an anomaly based on very unusual facts, but there are hidden lessons here for all organisations operating in Europe that have implemented new employee monitoring and profiling systems as part of their response to the Pandemic.

Back to work interviews

According to the findings of the German regulator, H&M runs a service centre in Nuremberg where, since 2014, its employees have been required to take part in back to work interviews following holidays and periods of sick leave. During these interviews notes were taken, gathering broad information about private and family lives. In cases of holiday leave notes
