The Information We Collect and How We Use It
We collect two types of information:
• information we receive from you; and
• information we receive from others.
Information we receive from you includes information you share with us
his 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. You share information with us in various ways in our stores and online. For example, you share information when you request customer service or contact us.
You also provide us information in other ways through technology. Some of this information may be linked to you personally. 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.
Our websites are general audience websites. We do not permit anyone who tells us they are under the age of 18 to register or open an account with us. We also do not collect information from anyone that tells us they are under the age of 18. Children under the age of 18 should always ask their parents or guardians for permission before providing any contact information to anyone online. We urge parents and guardians to participate in their children’s online activities and use parental controls or other web filtering technology to supervise children’s access to the internet.
