This policy is intended to help you understand how Newell Rubbermaid Inc., its subsidiaries and affiliates (‘Newell Rubbermaid,’ ‘we,’ or ‘us’) collect, use and safeguard the information you provide on this Web site. This policy covers this Web site and all Newell Rubbermaid Web sites except where otherwise indicated. Some Newell Rubbermaid Web sites may have policies that supplement this policy. We encourage you to read this policy and any supplemental policies on Newell Rubbermaid Web sites.
Collection of Personal Information
If you browse any Newell Rubbermaid Web site, you may generally do so anonymously without providing any personal information. However, there are cases in which we may ask you for personal data. For example, we will occasionally conduct on-line surveys to better understand the needs and profile of our visitors. In addition, we may request personal information when you register to receive additional information regarding our products and services, download software, sign up for a newsletter, or send us a question. Even if you choose not to give information we request, you can still visit most of the Newell Rubbermaid Web site, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services.
In case you change your mind or wish to update or delete personal information (such as your zip code), we will endeavor to correct, update or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this by contacting us at the contact points specified below.
When you place an order for a product or service, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number and expiration date. This personal information is required so that we can process and fulfill your order, send an order or shipping confirmation, as well as notify you of your order status. All Internet transactions with Newell Rubbermaid are performed on a secure server that encrypts your credit card information to ensure it is not read by unauthorized third parties.
Newell Rubbermaid Mailings/Marketing Communications
If you provide us with personal information, and choose to join a particular company’s email list, we will place you on that company’s list to receive e-mail regarding product/service updates, special offers, important issues and new products and services from that company as well as other subsidiaries and affiliates of Newell Rubbermaid. The personal information that you provide to that particular company will be shared internally with other subsidiaries and affiliates of Newell Rubbermaid. If you do not wish to receive e-mail updates or other marketing communications from that particular company or other Newell Rubbermaid subsidiaries and affiliates, please contact us at the opt-out e-mail address specified below.
Use of Personal Information
Personal information provided by users who are 13 or more years of age may be used for marketing and promotional purposes only by Newell Rubbermaid and its subsidiaries and affiliates. Except as described in this policy, Newell Rubbermaid does not rent, sell or otherwise distribute to third parties, your personal information entered on this site without your consent, unless required by law or as disclosed to you when the information is collected. If you do provide us with consent to share your information with other third party companies, we may share your information with third party companies who offer products and services that may be of interest to you. These companies may then contact you directly with product or sample offers, personalized offers and information, or to ask for your feedback on products and programs that they think may be of interest to you. While we use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your information, Newell Rubbermaid will have no liability for disclosure of any information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized acts of third parties.
We may share your personal information with our third party service providers on a need-to-know basis. We engage third party service providers to perform certain services on our behalf. In order to perform those services, the service providers may need to know your personal information. We require that they protect this information and only use it to perform services on our behalf. For example, we may use outside shipping companies, credit card processing companies, resellers, distributors, and content providers.
We may share statistical or aggregated non-personal information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties. This data is used to customize Newell Rubbermaid Web site content and advertising to deliver a better experience to our users.
Transfer of Personal Information
Depending on the country in which you are located, your personal information may be transferred to another country for data storage and processing. When we transfer personal information, we transfer the information in compliance with applicable data protection laws, such as the EU Data Privacy Directive and other country specific data privacy laws.
Cookies and IP Tracking
This Web site also may detect and use your IP address or domain name for internal traffic monitoring and capacity purposes or to otherwise administer our Web site. No personal information is obtained; rather, just the patterns of usage of our various users may be tracked to provide you with improved service and content based on aggregate or statistical reviews of user site traffic patterns.
Newell Rubbermaid reserves the right to disclose user information in special cases, when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other Newell Rubbermaid Web site users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose personal information without notice to you in response to a subpoena or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to respond to an emergency situation. We also may disclose personal information as part of a merger or acquisition.
