GENERAL AUDIENCE WEBSITE
Services offered by Carhartt WIP are not directed to individuals under the age of thirteen (13). Carhartt WIP does not knowingly collect Personal Information (as defined below) from individuals under thirteen (13) years of age. No information should be submitted to or posted to the Website by visitors younger than thirteen (13) years old. Furthermore, we may restrict entries to any contests, sweepstakes or promotions to entrants who are at least 18 years of age or the age of majority.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Carhartt WIP collects information in two ways: (1) directly from you, and (2) automatically as a result of your use of the Website and/or services. Much of the Website is accessible without providing any Personal Information. However, in order to set up an account, place an order or to take advantage of certain features of the Website, such as online surveys, promotions, contests and sweepstakes, product registration or to sign up for newsletters, we may require that you provide Personal Information. If you do not provide your Personal Information, you will not be able to use these areas or features of the Website. The Personal Information (as defined below) that you provide to us and the information we collect automatically is collectively referred to as “Collected Information” throughout this Notice.
As used in this Notice, “Personal Information” means information about an identifiable individual. Examples of Personal Information that we may collect include name, billing address, shipping address, telephone number, email address, birthdate, payment information (including payment card number or online payment service number) and related information.
If you provide Carhartt WIP with Personal Information about a person other than yourself, you represent and warrant that you are authorized by that person to provide their Personal Information to us for the purposes for which you provided it.
Information Collected Automatically
When you visit the Website, certain information regarding your use of the Website or our services is collected and/or aggregated by or on behalf of Carhartt WIP through the use of automated means. The information collected automatically may include information about your visit to, and use of, the Website, such as your IP address, type of browser and operating system used, date and time you access the Website, pages you visit, search engine used to access the Website, and if you linked to the Website from another website, the address of that website.
We may collect this information using cookies, web beacons, pixel tags and related technologies. “Cookies” are small identifiers sent from a web server that are stored on a computer’s hard drive for the purpose of identifying the browser during interaction on websites or storing information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server.
Using the information collected about you over time, we may engage in interest-based advertising, or “online behavioral advertising”, which includes ads presented to you after you leave our Website that encourage you to return. These ads may also include offers we think are relevant to you based on your shopping habits or online activities, and they may be served on websites or applications. We may serve these ads, or third party advertisers and ad networks such as Google AdWords and Facebook or other social media providers may serve you these ads. Many of these third parties have opt-out mechanisms for their ad cookies. For more information about your choices, please see the “Your Choices” section below.
We may allow third party advertising networks to collect information from the Website for targeting advertising purposes, including online behavioral advertising. Please see the “Advertising Networks” and “Your Choices” sections below for further information.

Accessing and Modifying Your Personal Information. You may correct, update and delete the information contained in your online account through the “My Account” page on the Website or by contacting us in writing as specified in the “How to Contact Us” section below. Please note that we may retain some Collected Information for archival and record retention purposes.
Communication Preferences. You may choose not to receive marketing email communications from us by clicking on the unsubscribe link in our marketing emails. You may still receive service oriented, administrative communications from us, as you cannot opt-out of receiving such administrative communications.
Cookies. You may be able to opt-out of the automatic collection via cookies of some information by referring to your web browser’s or mobile device’s options or settings menu and adjusting the settings to accept to reject cookies. You may also render some web beacons unusable by rejecting their associated cookies. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences or visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ for more information. You can also refer to the “Help” menu of your browser to learn more about Web Beacons and your ability to disable them. Disabling or rejecting cookies may disable many of the features and functionality of the Website and/or services.
Google Analytics Solutions. Google provides users choices on how their data is collected by Google’s Analytics Solutions through an Opt-out Browser Add-on which can be located at: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. By installing this Add-on, no information is being sent to Google Analytics.
NAI. Many companies that collect information for targeted advertising are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). NAI offers the ability for you to opt-out of the targeted advertising programs of their members by going to http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, http://www.aboutads.info/choices or http://youradchoices.ca. Please note that if you use a different computer, change your web browser, or delete your cookies, you will need to renew all of your opt-out choices. Please also note that this does not opt you out of being served advertising, but only excludes you from targeted (i.e. interest-based) advertising. If you use the Carhartt WIP website or Affiliate websites, you will continue to receive generic advertisements.
Please be aware that if you do not allow us to collect and use your information, portions of the Website’s features and functionality will not operate correctly and we may not be able to provide you with certain services.
SECURITY AND DATA RETENTION
Carhartt WIP takes commercially reasonable measures to secure and protect information transmitted via or stored on the Website. Despite these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of networks, servers and databases we operate or that are operated on our behalf or that the information you transmit to Carhartt WIP over the Internet will not be intercepted, deleted or altered.
We reserve the right to retain any Collected Information reasonably necessary to document our business activities and for archival and record retention purposes.
CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
Under California law, California residents have the right to request in writing from businesses with whom they have an established business relationship the following information: (a) a list of the categories of personally identifiable information, such as name, e-mail, and mailing address, and the type of services provided to the customer, that a business has disclosed to third parties (including affiliates that are separate legal entities) during the immediately preceding calendar year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, and (b) the name and address of all such third parties. To request the above information, please email us at: email@example.com with a reference to California Disclosure Information. For all requests, you must put the statement “Your California Privacy Rights” in the body of your request, as well as your name, street address, city, state, and zip code. Please note that we are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or that do not have complete information. Please allow 30 days for a response.
CALIFORNIA AND DELAWARE "DO NOT TRACK" DISCLOSURES
California and Delaware law require Carhartt WIP to indicate whether it honors “Do Not Track” settings in your browser concerning targeted advertising. At this time, there is no worldwide uniform or consistent industry standard or definition for responding to, processing, or communicating Do Not Track signals. Thus, like many other websites and online services, we are currently unable to respond to Do Not Track Signals. To find out more about “Do Not Track”, you may wish to visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
CANADA PRIVACY RIGHTS
The file containing your Personal Information is maintained on our servers or those of our service providers or Affiliates, and is accessible by authorized employees, representatives and service providers. To request access to or correction of your Personal Information in our custody or control, or if you have any questions, please write to our Privacy Officer at Carhartt Work in Progress, Attn: Steven Wolski, 401 Broadway Ste 1105, New York, NY 10013.
