We collect two types of information: (1) information we receive from you and (2) information we receive from others. Information we receive from you includes information you share with us, such as when you create an account on one of our websites. This also includes information you provide us through technology, such as through a cookie placed on your computer when you visit our websites. We also receive information from other sources to help us supplement our records, improve the personalization of our service to you, and detect fraud. Our goal is to limit the information we collect to the information needed to support our business. We collect information to deliver the products and services you request and to help improve your shopping experience. We collect information from you in a variety of ways when you interact with our stores, websites, and mobile services.
You share information with us in various ways in our stores and online. For example, you share information when you:
Make an in-store or online purchase, or other transaction, with us;
Create an account with us;
Conduct a transaction or request a service where we collect information;
Request customer service or contact us; and
Post a review or comment on one of our social media pages, or post a rating, review or other user-generated content on one of our websites or mobile services.
This information helps our websites and mobile services work correctly and supports our customer marketing and analytics efforts – our work to understand our customers’ needs and provide information about our products and services. We receive information about you from other sources to help us correct or supplement our records, improve the quality or personalization of our service to you, and prevent or detect fraud.
HOW IS THE INFORMATION USED
We use your personal information to provide you products and services, such as to fulfill your requests for products or to help us personalize our offerings to you. We also use your personal information to support our business functions, such as fraud prevention, marketing, and legal functions. To do this, we combine personal and non-personal information, collected online and offline, including information from third party sources.
We will not sell or rent your personal information. We may share your personal information in limited circumstances, such as to conduct our business, when legally required, or with your consent. We will not share your personal information outside of our corporate family of companies, except in the following circumstances: Service Providers We share personal information about you with service providers that help with our business activities, including shipping vendors, billing and refund vendors, payment card processors, and companies that help us improve our products and services. We require our service providers to keep your personal information secure. We do not allow our service providers to use or share your personal information for any purpose other than providing services on our behalf. Your personal information may be stored and processed by our service providers in the United States.
We may share your personal information in other special circumstances, which include situations when sharing is required by law, or we believe sharing will help to protect the safety, property, or rights of our customers, our associates, or other persons. In the event that all or a part of our business is merged, sold or reorganized (including transfers made as a part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings), personal information about you could be shared with the successor business. We will use reasonable measures to help ensure that any successor treats your information in accordance with this Policy.

We may send you marketing communications and you can tell us your marketing preferences by visiting the website. We want to offer you choices about the different ways we collect, use, or share your personal information. These choices are described below. When we are sending marketing communications to you, we use the following standards: We use an opt-in standard for phone and text messages. We use an opt-in standard for sharing personal information with companies outside our corporate family of companies for their use in direct marketing, such as sending you promotions. Opt-in means we will only conduct the activity with your affirmative consent. We use an opt-out standard for email or for other communications, such as postal mail. Opt-out means we may contact you but will stop upon your request. You can update, at any time, your preferences about receiving marketing materials. Or you may contact the Privacy Office as described in the “Contact Us” section below. If you contact us by email or mail, please be sure to include your full name, the types of communications you would like to receive or not receive, and your related contact information.
