What information do we collect and how do we use it?
Information You Provide
When you visit our Services, you may provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, address, phone number, email address, personal preferences, payment card number, purchase and ordering information, demographic information, responses to survey questions, sizing information and any other information you choose to provide. Our Services may also give you the option to upload or share pictures or videos of yourself and others.
We collect this information at various places on our Services, such as when you check out with your online order; engage with our mobile applications; subscribe to catalogs, email offers, and mobile messaging offers; participate in surveys; join our newsletter; enter contests or sweepstakes; or interact with special-event or program offers.
We may also collect information that you provide on our Services about people you know. For example, we collect your gift recipient's contact information to process your gift orders. We may also collect contact information about your friends and family members when you participate in one of our refer-a-friend programs. In these instances, we may send a message to your friend or family member on your behalf (so please only submit email addresses of individuals with whom you have a personal or family relationship and who would want to receive the message from you).
Information Your Devices Provide Automatically
When you interact with our Services, we obtain certain information by automated means, including the following:
We may obtain information about your location when you access or use our Services: for example, via your browser information and other similar device or browser attributes (like IP address), our store locator page, or our mobile applications.

When you access our Services, your computer, phone, or other device may provide navigational information, such as browser type and version, service-provider identification, IP address, the site or online service from which you came, and the site or online service to which you navigate.

Cookies, Clear Gifs and Similar Technologies
To better understand how you interact with our Services, we may collect information using cookies, clear-gifs (also known as web beacons or web bugs) and similar technologies.
A cookie is a small amount of data that's stored by your browser on your device. It's used to do things like see how you navigate our Services, what you click on, remember you and your online purchases when you return, and recognize you and honor a special deal for you, when you redeem one of our offers from a third party's site. This helps us improve and deliver our Services, provide better customer service, tailor and improve your online experience, and tailor offers to you based on your unique tastes and a combination of your online and offline (e.g., in-store) interactions and purchase history.
A clear gif is a nearly invisible pixel-sized graphic image on a web page, web-based document or email message. It helps us do things like view the URL of the page on which the clear gif appears and the time the site, document or email in question is viewed; and recognize you and honor a special deal for you, when you navigate from a third party's site to redeem one of our offers that may have appeared there. Clear gifs in emails help us confirm the receipt of, and response to, our emails, including those that you forward to friends and family; and they help deliver a more personalized or better online experience.
In addition to cookies and clear gifs, we may also use device identifiers, web storage, and other technologies to collect information about your interactions with our content and Services.
These technologies, illustrated above, may be used to help us see which of our interactive experiences online users like most. Cookies, clear gifs, and similar technologies also allow us to associate your online navigational information and purchases and interactions (both online and offline) with personal information you provide (such as name, address, phone number, survey responses, and email address). We associate this information to deliver products and services to you; improve our business; transact business; and market our products and services on this and other online services, and through a variety of media like email, mobile advertising, and direct mail.
