1. When you order from us, we collect your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, and credit card number (with expiration date and CVV number). We also gather information on the person who will receive any gift you send (e.g., that person's name and address) and we will retain a record of your purchases. In addition, if you are a registered user and have signed in when you enter this information, it will automatically be saved in your Wallet and/or Address Book for ease of reference.
2. When you become a registered user of the Web Site, we collect your name, mailing address, email address and password. This information is gathered to make your shopping experience as a registered user as quick and easy as possible. We also may ask for additional information (e.g., about your favorite brands and interests) in the section called My Account so that we may offer services and promotions that may be of interest to you. However, you have the option not to provide it.
3. When you enter a sweepstakes or contest online, we usually collect your name, address, email address, and phone number. We also may ask you for additional information, such as your age, interests, product preferences, or zip code.
4. When you submit a question to customer service, we need your email address to respond, and you also may provide us with various additional information to help us answer your question.
5. We also may receive some information about you from other sources and may add it to your account information. For example, we might get your updated address from a shipper or information on your preferences from another Web site conducting a promotion or event with us.
How Do We Use Your Information?
We may use your information in a number of ways, including the following:
2. To enhance your online shopping experience. For example, we may use it to recognize you and welcome you to the Web Site.
3. For marketing and promotional purposes. For example, we send out email and direct mail to our online customers about products or events that we think may be of interest to them. We also may send you offers for discounts or free services (e.g., free shipping) on the Web Site.
Information that is Automatically Collected?
The Web Site also collects and stores information that is generated automatically as you navigate through the Web Site. For example, to enhance your experience on the Web Site, The Company uses a standard feature found in browser software called a "cookie." Please refer to the paragraph below for a more information about cookies and how we use them. Another example of information that the Web Site automatically collects as you navigate the Web Site is information about your computer's connection to the Internet via your IP address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer whenever it is connected to the Internet. We log these addresses and analyze them to understand where requests originate so that we can provide the most efficient service, enhance security, ensure appropriate usage and produce traffic volume statistics.
Internet Cookies and How We Use Them
A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web site that is saved on your hard disk by your computer's browser. It holds information a site may need to interact with you and personalize your experience. The Company uses two kinds of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies exist only for as long as your browser remains open. Once you exit your browser, they go away. We use session cookies to maintain information we need to have in order for you to shop at the Web Site. For example, the Session ID cookie that we ask your browser to hold retains the ID for your shopping cart. Without the Session ID cookie, you can't add merchandise to your shopping cart and carry it to Checkout.
Persistent cookies, in contrast, last from visit to visit; they do not go away when you exit your browser. The Company uses Persistent cookies to give you a more personalized shopping experience and to help you navigate our store more efficiently. For example, a persistent cookie is set when you enter the specifications of your vehicle. Without the Persistent cookie, you will continually have to reenter this data every time you visit a product description page with vehicle specific application information. We will use your information to enhance your site experience. However, you can use our site without accepting a persistent cookie. To do so, you should set your browser options to reject persistent cookies. Alternatively, you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, which gives you the opportunity to decide whether you want to accept it or not. In many instances, the Help button on your browser toolbar will tell you how you can take these steps.
Cookies can be used by a Web site to recognize you. But that does not necessarily mean any personal information is stored in the cookies. The company will not store personal information about you in the cookies. Anything you choose to tell us about yourself (such as your address and email address) is stored safely and separately on our secured servers, and you need to provide a password to access it.
Is My Information Secure?
The Company is committed to doing its best to maintain the security of information collected on the Web Site. To try to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place the appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Private account and customer information is located on a secured server behind a firewall at our state-of-the-art world class data center with numerous security measures in place to prevent unauthorized access to our secure server. This multi-tier secure server is not directly connected to the Internet.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of personally identifiable information transmitted to us using this Web Site. When you enter personal information online, that information is encrypted using a security protocol called SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). SSL encryption is a process by which a message or information is scrambled while it is in transit to the Web Site. It is based on a key that has two different parts, public and private. The public part of the key is distributed to those with whom you want to communicate. The private part is for the recipient's use only. So long as you use a browser that allows for encryption, when you send personal information to us, you use a public key to encrypt your personal information. If your information is intercepted during the transmission, it is scrambled and very difficult to decrypt. Once we receive your encrypted personal information, we use the private part of our key to decode it.
Do We Share Your Information?
There may be situations where the Company needs to share your personal information with third parties, including responsible companies with which we have a relationship. For example:
1. When you make a purchase, the Company may share information about you and your transaction with other companies for the purpose of processing your transaction, including fraud prevention and credit card authorization.
2. When you've completed a purchase, the Company may share information about you and your transaction with vendors with which the Company have established direct shipping arrangements.
In most of the above situations, these third parties will receive your information because you will be visiting their Web sites or using their links and, in doing so, you may provide information directly to them. You therefore should refer to their privacy policies to understand how they handle your information and what kinds of choices you have.
What Choices Do You Have Regarding the Use of Your Information?
We provide you with a number of choices regarding our handling of your personal information.
If you do not wish to receive promotional emails from the Company, please submit a request electronically by doing the following:
