STATEMENT OF PRIVACY
Here is how we handle information about your visit to our website:
Information Collected and Stored Automatically
If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the intranet website, our Web server automatically collects and stores the following information:
- The Internet domain (for example, "xcompany.com" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a university’s domain) and IP addresses (and IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our intranet website;
- The date and time you accessed our site;
- The pages you visit; and
- If you linked to the HD intranet website from another website, the address of that website;
We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors – to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. The recorded information does not identify you personally and is used solely for statistical purposes.
HD uses a technology called “cookies” to remember you and the information you are saving. When you visit Furniture.com, we send you back a cookie, a small text file that includes a temporary inquiry number, your IP address, plus any items you’ve chosen. The information we store in cookies is also linked to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. Your web browser has a special folder on your computer where it keeps cookies. Cookies cannot harm your computer in any way. Only the website that places a cookie on your computer is allowed to read it; no other website may access the cookie HD places on your computer.
If you are visiting HD from a computer that only you or your family use, cookies present no security concern. However, if you are using a shared computer in a public environment (i.e. a library, Cyber Café or work), others using that computer to visit HD can log in as you. Although HD never displays your credit card information on our website, someone logging in as you could access less confidential data, such as your name or shipping address. If this applies to you, consider choosing not to be “remembered” when you register using a shared computer in a public environment. Instead, log in at each visit.
Cookies make your shopping experience much easier. If you are trying to decide between two sofas, the cookie enables your computer to find those items again without doing a whole new search. Your browser looks in its cookie folder, finds your HD cookie and tells HD that you want to look at the same sofas again.
When you add an item to your Shopping Cart, request a price, or place an order, your cookie may hold information with the details of the items you’re considering ordering.
If you don’t want any information stored in a cookie, you can set your browser not to accept cookies, but remember that cookies make your purchases easy. They enable your computer to keep a list of items you’re considering or to place them directly in your Shopping Cart (so you don’t have to re-enter them manually).
Personal Information that You Send to Our Site
We do not sell, rent, share, trade or give away any of the information you provide to us except to the financial institutions processing your payment and the retailers/shippers that produce and/or deliver your order. No third party will solicit you as a result of information within our control.
It is true that the information you provide is subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders. Other than these fairly extreme cases, your personal information will be shared with no one.
Notice for European Users
HD is located in the United States. Any information that you provide to HD will be transferred out of the EU to the United States. By providing personal information to us, you are consenting to its storage and use as described herein.
HD welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that HD has not adhered to this Statement, please contact HD directly. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
