Personal Information

Personal information is information that can be used to identify, contact or locate you and can include your name, e-mail address, billing address, shipping address, phone number or credit card information.

We collect personal information both to provide a superior customer experience and to administer our business.

It also allows us to communicate with you about special offers, promotions and other marketing programs and news that may be of interest to you.

The personal information we collect is of two types: (i) information that you provide to us and (ii) information that is collected automatically.

You can browse in our stores and on our websites without submitting your personal information to us.
