INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Personal Information means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, or is capable of being associated with you or your household, whether directly or indirectly. All companies need to collect and share consumers’ Personal Information for everyday business purposes, marketing, and maintenance of the safety, security, and integrity of their websites and other assets, among other reasons.

We collect the information you provide when you:

  • Order our products and services or create an account with us;
  • Request support or submit an inquiry to our Customer Care Center;
  • Sign up to receive information about our products and services;
  • Respond to surveys or participate in contests or promotions; or
  • Post information to message boards or discussion forums accessible through our online environments.

This information may include:

  • Identifiers, such as your real name, alias, postal address, e-mail address, phone numbers, or username;
  • Financial information, such as your bank account number, credit or debit card number, or other financial information;
  • Transactional information, such as products or services purchased, obtained, or considered, or other purchasing or consuming histories, equipment maintenance data to provide on-demand services, contract details, written signatures, or recordings of your calls to our Customer Care Center.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY

We collect the information provided when you transact through our online environments without you actively submitting such information, such as:

  • Identifiers, such as your internet protocol (IP) address and geolocation data
  • Network activity data, such as browsing history, search history, and information regarding your individual interactions with an internet website, application, or advertisement

This information can make your use of our online environments easier and more meaningful by allowing us to provide better service, customize our online environments based on your consumer preferences, compile statistics, provide you with more relevant advertisements, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve our online environments. For more information, refer to our Cookies Policy.

We may also combine the information we collect through one or more of our online environments with information we collect through other online environments. We may also combine information collected through our online environments with information collected through our offline environments, as well as with information provided by our partners. We use this consolidated information to help us improve our online environments, products, and services; to communicate information to you; to enhance our marketing and research activities; and to engage in any other uses described in the “HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT” section below.

INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS

Our advertising vendors may share information with us regarding our ads on websites or apps where such ads run.  This enables us to measure and improve those ads by including information such as whether clicks on ads led to purchases, or a list of criteria to use in targeting ads.  We may obtain information from our other partners, such as co-sponsors who we may partner with to run special contests or other co-branded promotions.  We may obtain information from other commercially available sources such as data aggregators, marketing firms, and public databases to provide us with additional information about our existing consumers (this is known as “data appending”).  This information may include name, demographic information, contact information, interests, and publicly observed data such as from social media and shopping behavior.  We may receive information about consumers when we acquire all or part of other companies.  We assess this data to determine how it was collected and what consent was given for its use.

HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We use the information we collect to:

  • Manage and fulfill orders, deliver products, process payments, manage returns;
  • Respond to requests for information and services; and
  • Improve our products and services.

We also use the information we collect in anonymized, aggregated form for customer preference analyses, and to:

  • Develop new products and services;
  • Develop co-branded partner relationships; and
  • Determine how to best protect the data of our company and our consumer.

Identifiers – We may use the information you provide to us to:

  • Send you advertisements, notices, and other information regarding our products and services, including notifying you about special promotions;
  • Respond to your inquiries or support requests;
  • Invite you to participate in surveys regarding our products or services;
  • Determine your eligibility for, and to register you in, our contests and other promotions, fulfill and deliver prizes, and contact you regarding such contests or other promotions;
  • Furnish and maintain our online environments; and
  • Secure our networks and online environments

Financial information – If you make a purchase through our online or offline environments and authorize us to use your credit or debit card information, we will use this information to charge you as authorized. In these situations, we may also save your contact and payment information (using commonly accepted security measures) so that you can use them the next time you want to order something from us.

Transactional information – If you register or open an account with us, the information we collect may be used to maintain your account, provide you with access to some features of our online environments, or offer you the benefits and privileges that typically come along with account registration. This may include purchasing products or services, use of exclusive or personalized content or activities (such as message boards), and participation in special events and promotions (contests, sweepstakes, coupons, etc.).

Technical information – We may also use the information we collect to offer you customized content by:

  • Recognizing new or past visitors to our online environments;
  • Remembering your personal preferences;
  • Showing you more relevant and meaningful advertisements;
  • Better understanding the interests of our consumers and visitors to our online environments; and
  • Conducting research and analyzing the use of our online environments, products, services, and advertisements.

Some of our applications and mobile-optimized online environments may have location-based features. To deliver these features, we may access and use location data provided by your mobile device. For example, we may offer shopping features that allow you to get information about local merchants. Location information will be collected solely to deliver the requested feature and will not be further retained or stored by us.

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

WE DO NOT SELL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION to third parties.  We may share some or all of your personal information as required or permitted by law and to the following persons or entities:

Vendors and Suppliers – We have relationships with different vendors and suppliers who help us design and maintain our online environments, systems, and computer security, respond to consumer inquiries, fulfill orders, mail invoices, analyze our data, create special promotions, and engage in any other information uses described in this Privacy Policy.

Co-Branding and Co-Marketing – We may partner with other companies to offer you products, services, or content on a joint or “co-branded” or “co-marketed” basis. If we offer products, services, or content in this manner, you will see both our logo and the logo of our partner. To access such products, services, or content, you may be redirected to their website and should then refer to their privacy policy to understand how they use your data.

Legal Requests and Preventing Harm – We will disclose information as reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or DS Services; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues.

Change of Ownership or Control – We may engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Privacy Policy.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THIRD PARTIES

Links to Other Sites – We may feature links to websites that we believe you might find useful and informative. Please be aware, however, that we do not endorse or recommend these sites’ content, products, or services, and we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. We encourage you to be aware of and read the privacy policy of each site you visit. Remember, this Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected or used by DS Services.

Social Media Plugins – Our online environments may use social media plugins (for example, the Facebook “Like” button or “Share to Twitter” button) to enable you to easily share information with others. When you visit our online environments, the operator of the social plugin can place a cookie on your device, enabling that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited our online environments. Please view our Cookie Policy for more information about removing cookies. If you are logged into the social media website (for example, Facebook, Twitter, Google+) while browsing on our online environments, the social plugins allow that social media website to receive information that you have visited our online environments. The social plugins also allow the social media website to share information about your activities on our online environments with other users of their social media website. For example, Facebook Social Plugins allow Facebook to show your “Likes” and comments on our online environments to your Facebook friends. Facebook Social Plugins also allow you to see your friends’ Facebook activity on our online environments. We do not control any of the content from the social media plugins. For more information about social plugins from other social media websites, you should refer to those sites’ privacy and data sharing policies.

HOW WE SECURE YOUR INFORMATION

We have instituted physical, technical, and procedural safeguards to store and maintain information we collect in a secure environment. You may also be required to use a password to access certain pages on our online environments where certain types of your information can be changed or deleted. It is therefore important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your device. You take full responsibility for maintaining the complexity and confidentiality of your password. While we have implemented safeguards, you should be aware that Internet security technology rapidly changes. We cannot guarantee that the safeguards we employ today can protect your information from the threats of tomorrow. You should also be aware that despite our efforts, factors beyond our control may result in disclosure of information.

We retain Personal Information collected through the online and offline services as long as necessary to provide the services, products, and information you request or as permitted by applicable law.

We do not knowingly allow children to order our products or services, communicate with us, or use any of our online environments. If you are a parent and become aware that your child has provided us with information, please contact us using one of the methods specified below, and we will work with you to address this issue.
