WHAT INFORMATION MAY WHP COLLECT?

WHP may collect and store two types of information: “personal information” and/or “automatic information”. 

Personal information relates to who you are, such as, your name, gender, mailing address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, age, any personal preferences you may choose to provide, and/or any assigned password used to protect your privacy. 

WHP may from time to time collect personal information from you when you subscribe to the Site, provide your email address (and/or any other information) through this Site, “like” or otherwise follow any of WHP’s social media accounts, communicate with WHP through email or in another writing, or when you communicate with WHP by providing information to any of WHP’s customer service representatives (whether through a “Contact Us” link on the Site or otherwise).  WHP may also collect information about you from any of its licensees, its distributors and/or any retailers (collectively, “Licensees, Distributors and Retailers”) with whom you may have shared personal information. WHP also reserves the right to obtain publicly accessible customer demographics and information about you from any commercially available (or otherwise publicly available) sources. 

Automatic information is information that WHP may collect automatically whenever you interact with this Site, such as your IP address, the type of computer you use, the web browser you use, the web page that linked you to the Site, and/or the way you navigated the Site and the products you viewed.  An IP address is a number assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet.  Each time you visit this Site, WHP’s web server may automatically recognize and collect this information. Automatic information also includes information generated by the use of “cookies” and “web beacons” (also known as “pixel tags”). 

A “cookie” is a small text file that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Among other things, cookies provide a means to keep track of your online patterns and preferences. By understanding which areas of the Site you visit, cookies would allow WHP to present information, products and services that are of personal interest and make the Site more efficient.  Some of the ways WHP may use cookies include enabling your log in, identifying your shopping cart, tracking where you travel on the Site and what you look at and purchase, and for marketing testing and product recommendations. 

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies but allow you to change your browser so that it will not automatically accept cookies. Various browsers have different ways to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you, limit the kinds of cookies that can be placed on your computer and let you delete cookies. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. Additionally, if you have a Flash player installed on your computer, flash cookies may be stored. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies and the cookie management tools provided by your browser will not necessarily remove Flash cookies. The latest versions of many browsers let you control or delete Flash cookies through the browser’s settings. If you use an older version of one of these browsers, upgrade to the most recent version, and set it to update automatically. However, if you delete or remove cookies, it is possible that some portions of the Site may not function as intended. 

“Web beacons”, also known as “pixel tags”, “clear GIFs” or “single-pixel GIFs”, or similar technologies, are small image files that WHP may place on web pages. Working in conjunction with cookies, web beacons would allow WHP to accurately count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page and the number of times those pages are displayed. 

WHP may also use third party internet analytics firms, such as Google Analytics, Adobe Analytics and others, to place cookies and pixel tags on your computer or browser when you visit the Site. These third parties collect automatic information to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information regarding your visits to the Site, such as what you browsed and purchased, what web page linked you to the Site and what traffic is driven by banner ads and e-mails.

WHP may also use geolocation data directly or through third party service providers, based on your then current location, including that of any mobile devices you may have used to access the Site, to provide location based services. 

WHP reserves the right to associate automatic information with your personal information in the event WHP collects personal information from you.  In the event of such association, such automatic information would be considered personal information.

DOES WHP DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION TO OTHERS? 

WHP maintains a database of customer information it collects. The database may be maintained and operated by third party service providers and may also house customer information collected by certain other affiliated brands which at any point in time may be owned by WHP.  When you establish or update your customer profile information with WHP, whether through a purchase, registration or email sign-up at the Site or through a customer service representative, or in other communications you may have, your name and address, and any other information, on the database may be shared with and updated for any of the brands on the shared database for which you have established a customer profile. 

WHP may disclose any or all of your personal information to Licensees, Distributors and Retailers for such third-parties to use in connection with marketing and promotional efforts relating to the ANNE KLEIN® brand and/or otherwise as WHP and such Licensees, Distributors and Retailers may agree. 

WHP may also disclose personal information about you to third parties who provide services to WHP. These third parties may use the information in connection with the services they provide to WHP, such as hosting the Site, assisting WHP in fulfilling your transactions and customer service inquiries, and managing and updating your customer information, or to improve their services generally.  

WHP may also share your information with third parties to assist WHP in managing its Site, understanding and optimizing the performance and functionality of the Site, or so they can market and advertise to you products and services of WHP and/or others that they believe may be of interest to you. 

WHP may share your information (such as your name, email address, mailing address and transactional history with WHP) with third parties by participating or joining a shared membership or cooperative database.  In such a case, other third party members in the membership or cooperative database may use your information to market and promote their products and services to you. If you prefer not to have your personal information shared with these cooperative or membership databases for their own marketing purposes, please contact WHP as indicated in this Privacy Policy below (see “Contact WHP”). 

WHP may also use and/or disclose to others information about your demographics and use of the Site in a manner that does not reveal your identity. WHP also may match and use information collected from you at the Site with information obtained collected from other sources or third parties. 

From time to time, WHP may partner with one or more Licensees, Distributors and Retailers, and/or other co-sponsor(s), to conduct a contest, sweepstakes or other promotional event. In those situations, each of the participating persons, entities and co-sponsor(s) and the websites of each participating person, entity and/or co-sponsor(s) may collect or receive personal information from you and will have the right to use your personal information in accordance with their own respective privacy policies. 

WHP may disclose personal information in special cases when it has reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may have breached WHP’s Terms of Use and Conditions of Service or who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) WHP’s rights or property, other users of the Site, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. 

WHP may also disclose personal information when it reasonably believes that the law requires it.  

WHP might sell or buy subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, personally identifiable information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing privacy policy unless subsequent consent otherwise has been obtained from you. Also, in the event that assets of WHP are sold, personal information collected through this Site or other means may be one of the transferred assets. Accordingly, WHP reserves the right to assign its rights and duties under this Privacy Policy to any third party at any time without notice to you, and such assignment rights shall include the ability to make an assignment in connection with any sale, merger, acquisition, divestiture or liquidation of all or part of WHP’s business or assets related to the Site, all or substantially all of WHP’s other business or assets, or as part of any reorganization or restructuring of WHP’s business or assets. 

HOW DOES WHP PROTECT THE SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION?

Unfortunately, information transmitted on the Internet and/or stored on systems connected to the Internet is not 100% secure. As a result, WHP cannot and does not ensure, warrant or guarantee the security or integrity of such information.

DOES THE SITE HAVE LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES?

While you are using this Site, you may be linked or directed to other third party sites outside of the Site that are beyond WHP’s control.  By way of example, when choosing to purchase a product at the Site, the Site may forward you to the e-commerce website of an unaffiliated retailer (e.g., Macys).  Each of these third parties may have a privacy policy different from this Privacy Policy. For example, you might click on a link or banner ad that will take you off the Site. These links and banners may take you to sites of advertisers, sponsors and co-branding partners. Please review the privacy policies of these other sites. WHP is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties. For more information, please read WHP’s Terms of Use and Conditions of Service.
