In order to process your order efficiently, we collect the following information: name, billing address, shipping address, e-mail address, phone number, and credit card number ("Personal Information") when you place an order with us. Under certain circumstances we may also collect a user's IP address (i.e., the Internet number associated with your specific computer); for example if we suspect that credit card fraud may have occurred. We also may use your email address for our newsletter, from which you can unsubscribe clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of it.

With respect to emails that you may receive from us, we capture data related to the opening, click-through and sales conversion process. This information is used for internal analysis only.
We may share your Personal Information with our employees and with companies acting as our authorized agents or partners in providing our service or co-branded services (e.g., credit card processing and customer and support services) to you and for Information Usage Purposes. These companies agree to use such Personal Information only for such specified purposes. Each partner must agree to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of your Personal Information in order to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure.
We may release Personal Information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is necessary to comply with law, protect the rights, properties or safety of homecomfortsbedandbath.com, our users or others, or enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements.
We might collect and use non-Personal Information (such as demographic data) to analyze and develop our business strategy and to determine how you found out about us, your interests regarding our products and services and how to further improve our Site. We, or a third party, may also collect information from your activities on the Site for the purposes of providing advertisements and other content to you at the Site that are customized to your interests and preferences. To accomplish all this, and also to allow us to offer our customers streamlined ordering and other useful features, we, as do many web sites, use the technologies listed below and other similar technologies (the “Tracking Technologies”):
Among our top priorities is keeping your Personal Information secure. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt all of your Personal Information before it is transmitted to us. Encrypted information cannot be read or recorded as it travels over the Internet. You can tell you are sending information securely by the unbroken key icon or closed lock icon that should appear at the bottom of your Internet browser's window (depending on what browser you use). These icons will appear when you are placing an order on our Site. In addition, you will see our Site address change slightly, from http: to https: indicating a secure server connection is being used. The computers that store your Personal Information are located in a separate facility which employs the latest in firewall and security technology. We employ these procedures to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure.
If you set up a customer account any information entered is password and SSL protected. We recommend you exercise extreme care in protecting your password information and do not publicly share any of your passwords.
Bridal Registry information is treated differently from information submitted for other purposes on our Site.

In addition, cookies are used as part of our registry service to save your registry number on your computer. By registering with us and opting to make your registry available online, your registry information, which includes your name, date of event and event location (your state), but no other Personal Information, will be made available to our partners that help provide our services and our co-branded services (including for Information Usage Purposes) and will be accessible by search engines and spiders that are not affiliated with us.

We will use commercially reasonable efforts to hold and transmit your Personal Information in a safe, confidential and secure environment. If you object to your Personal Information being transferred or used in this manner please do not register with or use the Site.
