“Purchasing History” – we maintain a history of products you have purchased, rented, and/or returned.

We obtain Personal Information from the following categories of sources: Directly from you including, without limitation, when you: (1) open an account; (2) complete and submit an order on our websites or from our catalogs; (3) request a catalog; (4) submit a customer review; (5) create a registry with a Gift Registry Service; (6) enter a contest; (7) communicate with customer service; (8) conduct a search; or (9) subscribe to a newsletter or customer alert.

Cookies and other identifiers

Cookies are small text files that websites send to your computer. A cookie can be thought of as an Internet user's ID card. They let the website know when the user has returned. This lets the site bring up information relevant to that user, for example your name, past orders, etc.

Cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier. Without cookies, it would be very difficult for a website to allow a visitor to fill up a shopping cart or to remember the user's preferences or registration details for a future visit. We use cookies to allow customers to move from one part of the web site to another and to add items to the shopping cart without having to log in repeatedly.

We also use cookies to track visitors' interest in our products. We may use this to understand what most appeals to our customers so we can make our offers as appropriate as possible. Browsing behavior is also used to create relevant banner advertising with product recommendations that we believe best relate to the items you viewed on our website. These banners are then served across other websites that you may visit. This process is called behavioral advertising and although the ads are individually tailored to each visitor, all cookie data is anonymized and stored temporarily. We use the browsing behavior data to create personal product recommendations on our website, our marketing emails and in our printed catalog.

How we use Personal Information

We use the Personal Information which we collect for one or more of the following business purposes: process, track, and fulfill your order; communicate with you regarding your order; create a gift certificate; respond to a request for information; send you catalogs or promotional information and material, including information regarding products or services that may be of interest to you; send you newsletters, customer alerts, and email; communicate with you regarding products you have purchased; improve our websites; enhance our customer service; track customer preferences; improve and enhance our product selection; administer our loyalty programs; to protect the rights, property, and safety of us, our customers, and other third parties; to evaluate or conduct a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which Personal Information held by us is among the assets transferred; and to respond to law enforcement requests and as required by applicable law, court order, or governmental regulations.
