What is Personal Information
Personal information is any information that specifically identifies a customer, user, or individual. For example, personal information may include, but is not necessarily limited to, a name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, or Social Security Number. Personal information also includes demographic information such as date of birth, gender, geographic area, preferences, and any other personally-identifiable information. Personal Information does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed. For example, information about how a customer uses a product may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same product, with no personal information included in the resulting data. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and customer needs so that we can better consider new products and services, and tailor existing products and services to customer demands.
Personal Information We Collect
We may gather personal information that you provide voluntarily while using our website, visiting our stores, participating in contests, sweepstakes or promotions or signing up for any of our programs, products or services. Personal information may also be collected when you contact us by phone or email, submit online comments or have in-store interaction with employees or our vendor partners.
When you shop at our stores or register for use of our services we may collect aggregate information about your shopping transactions such as the date of your purchase, product or items purchased and the dollar amount or purchase value. This information is only treated as personal information if we combine it with or link it to other information that may identify you.
Use of Information
We may use information gathered for a variety of purposes, including fulfilling and managing purchases, orders, payments, returns, exchanges and requests for information. Information may also be used to deliver coupons, mobile coupons, newsletters, in-store messages, emails and push notification or other mobile communications. Personal information may also be used to send marketing communications and other information regarding products, services and promotions we feel might be of interest. Your information may also be used to improve the effectiveness of our marketing efforts, including improvements to our website, stores, mobile experience, email communications and direct mail. Information collected may also aid in our customer research and analysis, including focus groups and surveys,
Sharing of Information
We will not sell or otherwise share your personal information with other people or nonaffiliated companies for any purpose except those described above, or as required by law. However, we will share this information with certain business partners to provide requested service that we do not provide directly, but we will only share personal information with these business partners if they agree not to disclose the information to other parties and agree not to use this information to solicit business from you.
In addition, we may share aggregate data collected through the website that does not personally identify you or your personal information with our research partners, and may from time to time share this type of data with other business partners.
Also, we may disclose specific information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, when required by law, or to protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety. In these instances, we are not providing information for marketing or commercial purposes.
