Cookies and Third Party Tracking

We participate in behavior-based advertising. This means that a third party uses technology (e.g., a cookie) to collect information about your use of our website so that they can provide advertising about products and services tailored to your interests on our website, or on other websites. For more information about cookies and to update your preferences, please click the “Cookie Settings” available on our website.

We collect information, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to a computer when the Internet is used), domain name, click-activity, referring website, and/or a date/time stamp for visitors.

III. For what purpose is your personal data collected and used?

In addition to the purposes and uses described above, we use data in the following ways:

• To identify you when you visit our websites or our stores.

• To streamline the checkout process, to provide products and services, and to process returns.

• To manage our relationships as well as for internal administrative purposes.

Although the sections above describe our primary purpose in collecting your personal data, in many situations we have more than one purpose. For example, if you complete an online purchase we collect your personal data to perform our contract with you, but we also collect your personal data as we have a legitimate interest in maintaining your information after your transaction is complete so that we can quickly and easily respond to any questions about your order. As a result, our collection and processing of your personal data is based in different contexts upon your consent, our need to perform a contract, our legal or regulator obligations, and/or our legitimate interest in conducting our business.

IV. Who are the recipients of your personal data?

In addition to the specific situations discussed elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, we share personal data in the following situations:

Affiliates. We share personal data with our corporate affiliates (e.g., parent company, sister companies, subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control) including across our different brands and other entities in the LVMH Moët Hennessy-Louis Vuitton Group, with some of these entities acting as data processors.

Business Transaction. If another company acquires, or plans to acquire, our company, business, or our assets, we will share personal data with that company, including at the negotiation stage.

Other Disclosures with Your Consent. We may ask if you would like us to share your personal data with other third parties who are not described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy.

Other Disclosures without Your Consent. We may share personal data with third parties in response to subpoenas, warrants, court orders, or other requests from legal or regulatory authorities; in connection with any legal process; or to comply with relevant legal, regulatory or treaty obligations. We may also share your personal data in order to establish or exercise our rights, to defend against a legal claim, to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding possible illegal activities, suspected fraud, safety of person or property, or a violation of our policies. In addition, we may share your personal data to comply with your request for the shipment of products to or the provision of services by a third party intermediary.

Public Forums. Some of our websites provide the opportunity to post comments or reviews in a public forum. If you decide to submit information on these pages, that information may be publically available.

V. International transfers of personal data

As a multi-national company we transmit information between and among our affiliates. As a result your personal data may be processed in a foreign country where privacy laws may be less stringent than the laws in your country. Nonetheless, where possible we take steps to treat personal data using the same privacy principles that apply pursuant to the law of the country in which we first received your information. By submitting your personal data to us you agree to the transfer, storage and processing of your information in a country other than your country of residence including, but not necessarily limited to, the United States.

All data transfers are subject to appropriate safeguards to ensure compliance with applicable regulations relating to the protection of personal data. For example, all transfers of personal data to our affiliates outside of the EEA are based on the EU Commission’s standard contractual clauses. If you would like more information concerning our attempts to apply the privacy principles applicable in one jurisdiction to data when it goes to another jurisdiction you can contact us using the contact information below.

VI. How do we protect your personal data?

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is fully secure. While we use reasonable efforts to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data. In the event that we are required by law to inform you of a breach to your personal data we may notify you electronically, in writing, or by telephone, if permitted to do so by law.

Some of our websites permit you to create an account. When you do you will be prompted to create a password. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password, and you are responsible for any access to or use of your account by someone else that has obtained your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by you. You should notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account.

VII. What are your choices and how can you exercise them?

You may have the following choices regarding your personal data:

• Access to Your Personal Data. You may request access to your personal data by contacting us at the address described below. If required by law, upon request, we will grant you reasonable access to the personal data that we have about you.

• Changes to Your Personal Data. We rely on you to update and correct your personal data. Most of our websites allow you to modify or delete your account profile.

If our website does not permit you to update or correct certain personal data, you may contact us at the address described below.

• Deletion of Your Personal Data. Typically we retain your personal data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. You may, however, request information about how long we keep a specific type of personal data, or request that we delete your personal data by contacting us at the address described below. If required by law we will grant a request to delete personal data, but you should note that in many situations we must keep your personal data to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, or for another one of our business purposes.

• Revocation of Consent. If you revoke your consent for the processing of personal data then we may no longer be able to provide you services.

You may revoke consent to processing (where such processing is based upon consent) by contacting us at the address described below.

• Online Tracking. We do not currently recognize or respond to automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include "Do Not Track" instructions.

You can check the “Effective Date” legend at the top of this page to see when this Privacy Policy was last revised. To the extent that our Privacy Policy changes in a material way, the policy that was in place at the time that you submitted personal data to us will generally govern that data unless we receive your consent to the new privacy policy.

 

California Information Sharing Disclosure

California Civil Code Sections 1798.115(c), 1798.130(a)(5)(c), 1798.130(c), and 1798.140 indicate that organizations should disclose whether the following categories of personal data are collected, transferred for “valuable consideration,” or transferred for an organization’s “business purpose” (as those terms are defined under California law).  The table below indicates the categories of personal data we collect and transfer in a variety of contexts.  Please note that because this list is comprehensive, it may refer to types of information that we collect and share about people other than yourself.  For example, while we transfer credit card or debit card numbers for our business purpose in order to process payments for orders placed with us, we do not collect or transfer credit card or debit card numbers of individuals that submit questions through our website’s “contact us” page.
