We may collect personal data from customers both online and offline. Online, we may collect information through the Website. On some pages, you may order products, make requests, submit product reviews, and register to receive materials or information. Offline, we may collect information through our sales associates at retail locations (such as email addresses for the purposes of sending electronic receipts). Our Policy applies to all information collected by or submitted to the Website, TNT Gear, or its employees as described herein.
The types of personal information collected include, without limitation, your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information.
On some pages, you may submit information about other people. For example, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient’s address. In this circumstance, the types of personal information collected relating to the recipient include their name, shipping address, and phone number.
We may combine information you give us with other information from TNT Gear sources or transactions, including, without limitation TNT Gear Store, direct mail, catalogs, events, and automatic data collection sources. We may also combine that information with data that is publicly available and/or data from third parties.
AUTOMATIC DATA COLLECTION:
Our Website uses “cookie” technology to improve the quality of your experience. A cookie is a small file that contains information sent by a website that is saved on your hard disk by your computer’s browser. Cookies store information that a website may need in order to personalize your experience and gather website statistical data. Any time you visit our Website to browse or to read or download information, we collect and store the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet (for example, msn.com, google.com, etc.); the Internet protocol address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our Website; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Website. We use this information to measure the number of visitors to areas of our Website, and to help us make our Website more useful and interesting to our visitors. We use information from cookies in the aggregate to analyze for trends and statistics, and then discard it.
The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include:
· Flash Cookies. Certain features of our Website may use local stored objects (or Flash cookies) to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from, and on our Website. Flash cookies are not managed by the same browser settings as are used for browser cookies.
· Web Beacons. Pages of our Website and our e-mails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that enable us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
We may also use technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third party websites or other online services (e.g. behavioral tracking). Because there are not yet common, industry-accepted “do-not-track” standards and systems, our Website does not respond to “do-not-track” signals.
THE WAY WE USE INFORMATION:
We use the information you provide (about you or someone else) when placing an order to ship the product and to confirm delivery, to improve your shopping experience, help target or suggest products for you, and/or to help analyze and improve our Website’s overall performance.
If you contact us, we retain copies of your email correspondence and use return e-mail addresses to answer the e-mail received. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
We will occasionally send out promotional e-mails to our previous purchasers relating to sweepstakes and catalog and e-mail signups. You may opt-in to receive e-mails from us by providing an email address during checkout at any TNT Gear retail store or by signing up within your Registered Customer Account. We provide full instructions on how to unsubscribe from these distribution lists at the bottom of each e-mail that is circulated.
