We have created this Privacy Policy to inform you of our information collection, use and sharing practices for the Sites.

Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy apply only to information gathered through our Sites and, where applicable, through our Sites' Customer Service Department in connection with our Sites, and do not necessarily reflect our practices with respect to information gathered through other Web sites that we operate or through other off-line means.

What Information About Me Is Collected and Stored?

We collect and store information that you enter into our Sites or that you provide through our Sites' Customer Service Department.

Personal Information is information you provide that lets us know specific facts about you so that we can fulfill your orders and customize the information we deliver to you accordingly. For example, when you open an account or place an order, we collect and store some or all of the following information that you provide: name, billing address, shipping address, email address, telephone number, and credit card or other payment information. This information is used to provide the products and services that you have ordered or requested, to process and ship orders, to send order and shipping confirmations and to provide customer service. Some of this information also may be used to contact you about sales, special offers and new site features, unless you have opted not to receive promotional communications in connection with our Sites.

We collect and store certain other information automatically whenever you interact with our Sites. For example, we collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain name every time you visit one of our Sites. We also collect information regarding customer traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve our Sites and to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience.

Also, like many Web sites, we use "cookies", which are files stored on your computer's hard drive by your browser. Cookies help us to identify account holders and to optimize their shopping experience. Cookies also allow us to hold selections in a shopping cart when a user leaves one of our Sites without checking out. Most browsers accept cookies automatically but allow you to disable them. If you leave cookies "turned on," we can offer you a better shopping experience on our Sites.

We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources, to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to provide product recommendations and special offers that we think will interest you.

Is Information Collected From Children?

We do not sell or ship any items ordered through our Sites directly to anyone who we know to be under the age of 18, nor do we collect any personal information from anyone who we know to be under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, you should use our Sites only with the involvement of a parent or guardian and should not submit any personal information to us.

With Whom Do You Share Information?

We do not share with others any personal information that you provide to us through our Sites or through our Sites' Customer Service Department, except with your consent or as described in this Privacy Policy.

We may share personal information that you provide to us through our Sites or through our Sites' Customer Service Department with our affiliates and service providers. In turn, our service providers may share this personal information with their affiliates and with service providers whom they engage to perform services related to our Sites or the operation of our business. Examples of these services include Web Site operation, payment processing and authorization, fraud protection and credit risk reduction, product customization, order fulfillment and shipping, customer service, marketing and promotional material distribution, data analysis and, where applicable, data cleansing. These service providers are authorized to use this personal information only in connection with the services they are engaged to perform.

We may use the services of a third party to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and determine how customers use our Sites. To do this, we may use cookies and tracer tags provided by this third party, which enable us to collect non personal information such as the following: the product codes and prices for merchandise that customers purchase, the pages visited, time spent on particular pages, type of web browser, etc.

This information helps us to learn things like what pages are most attractive to our customers, which of our products most interest our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see.

Our sites may include third party advertising. We do not provide personal information to these third party advertisers; however, they may use technology to send the advertisements that appear on one of our Sites to your browser. In this process, the third party advertiser automatically receives your IP address. They may also employ cookies and tracer tags to measure the effectiveness of their own advertisements and personalize your interaction with them. We do not have access to or control over the cookies, tracer tags or other technology they may use, and the information collected by these third party advertisers are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Please contact them directly for further information regarding their information privacy policies. For your reference, the Network Advertising Initiative offers useful information about internet advertising companies, including methods of "opting-out" of their information collection practices.

We also may offer you the opportunity to purchase products and services provided by third parties, such as magazine subscriptions and extended warranty plans. If you purchase any of these products or services, we will provide your personal information to the third parties that provide them for that purpose.

We may release personal information if we believe in good faith that: the law or legal process requires it; we have received a valid administrative request from a law enforcement agency or court; or such release is necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of HAGGAR, or any of our affiliates, service providers, customers or others.

We may share non-personal information with our marketing partners, advertisers and others from time to time. Examples of such non-personal information include the number of users who visited our Sites during a specific time period or purchased a specific product through our Sites. This information generally is shared in an aggregated form.

As with any business, it is possible that, as our business develops, we might sell or buy online stores or other assets. In such transactions, information about customers often is among the transferred assets. Accordingly, in the unlikely event that HAGGAR, or substantially all of its assets related to our Sites, is acquired by a third party, such information may be one of the transferred assets. Under such circumstances HAGGAR would, to the extent possible, require the acquiring party to follow the practices described in this Privacy Policy, as it may be amended from time to time.

You also acknowledge and consent to the fact that we may, at our discretion, store and process such data in other countries (including countries outside the EEA) where data protection laws may not afford the same level of protection as those of the country in which you are located.
