1. INFORMATION COLLECTED
We collect three types of information from you: i) information that you provide to us; ii) information we collect or receive from others; and iii) information that is derived through automated tracking mechanisms and technology.
We collect information when you register online or update your account, log-in, place an order, communicate with our customer service representatives, opt-in to receive our e-mails, shop online, request a catalog, participate in a sweepstakes, contest, promotion or survey or join our social networking sites. We may also collect information from you in our stores or through our catalogs or other marketing material. This information may include, but is not limited to, your contact information (for example, your name, e-mail address, billing and shipping addresses and phone number) and your credit card and debit card information. If you create an online account, you also have the option of providing your product preferences and demographic information. If you use other functionalities found on our Site, or if you choose to send an e-mail from our site to a friend, we will also collect your friend’s name and e-mail address. Your friend’s information is only used to send the forwarding e-mail and is not saved in our customer or marketing databases.
We may collect information through automated tracking mechanisms and technology to make our Site more interesting and useful to you and for various purposes related to our business. For instance, when you come to our Site, we may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type. Such information may be used for system administration and to analyze the frequency with which visitors to our Site visit various parts of our sites; and we may combine such information with personally identifiable information.
This Website may use tracking tags in certain pages to measure and optimize marketing campaign results. It will not store, in any event, personal user information. Web beacons are small strings of code that are placed in a website page or in an e-mail message. They are sometimes called “clear GIFs” (Graphics Interchange Format) or “pixel tags.” Web beacons are most often used in conjunction with cookies to track activity on our Website. When you visit a particular page, web beacons notify us of your visit. Since web beacons are used in combination with cookies, if you disable cookies the web beacons will only detect an anonymous Website visit. When used in an e-mail, Web beacons enable us to know whether you have received the e-mail.
