1. Our Commitment to Privacy
2. What is Personal Information?
Personal information is information that refers to an individual specifically and is recorded in any form and includes such things as age, income, date of birth, e-mail and postal addresses, telephone numbers, financial information, credit reports as well as preferences and order history (the “Personal Information”).
3. How is Personal Information Collected?
Personal Information may be collected when you make a purchase, visit one of our Sites or provide us with any Personal Information. Personal Information may also be collected online when you make a purchase, apply for credit, voluntarily register with us or update your existing profile, receive catalogues, newsletters or emails, use communication services, answer surveys, enter contests or other promotional opportunities or make other submissions to our Site. We may also collect Personal Information from third parties to whom you have provided same.
4. Why we collect Personal Information
We use Personal Information to communicate with you about our products, promotions, or contests, to protect you and us from error and fraud, to process your requests or orders and to keep track of and analyze your purchases, transactions, shopping patterns, account activity, payment history and to assess your credit-worthiness. We may also use this information to make offers to you, to help us target specific products to you, and to help us develop and improve our offerings and tailor them to your interests.
The law permits or requires that we collect, use, or share your Personal Information in certain circumstances without your consent, including, for example, to investigate a breach of an agreement or a law or in response to a search warrant, to realize on security pledged for a loan, or to investigate or deter fraud.
You may change or withdraw your consent at any time, on reasonable notice, subject to legal or contractual restrictions. We will inform you of the implications of doing so. To change or withdraw your consent, please refer to the Contacting Us section below.
6. Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention
Personal Information will not be used or disclosed for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with your consent or as required or permitted by law. Personal Information will be retained only as long as necessary for those purposes or as permitted by law.
We will keep your Personal Information as accurate, complete, and up-to-date as necessary and reasonably possible for the purposes for which it is to be used. You may request access to any Personal Information we have on record to review and amend the information, as appropriate. In circumstances where your Personal Information has been provided by a third party, we will refer you to that party (e.g. credit bureaus).
8. Safeguards and Accountability
We will protect your Personal Information with appropriate security safeguards and safety measures, whether recorded on paper or captured electronically, against unauthorized access, disclosure, or misuse. For example, electronic records are stored in secure, limited-access servers; we employ technological tools like firewalls and passwords; and we ensure our employees are trained on the importance of maintaining the security and confidentiality of Personal Information.
We are responsible for Personal Information under our control, including any Personal Information that is transferred to third parties for processing, storage, or other purposes. We review our procedures and security measures regularly to ensure that they are properly administered and remain effective and appropriate for the sensitivity of the information.
It is your responsibility to delete or remove Personal Information from a product before returning it, as DW is not responsible for any use by a third party of Personal Information left behind on a returned item.
9. Openness and Individual Access
Should you so request, we will, within a reasonable delay, inform you of the existence, use and disclosure of Personal Information relating to you, and give you access to that information, unless prohibited by law. You have the right to challenge the accuracy and completeness of your information and have it amended as appropriate.
