What Personally Identifiable Information Will Unique Collect?
If you fill out our Request for Account form, we typically ask for your company’s name, address, structure, business characteristics, and business tax identification number, as well as individual contact information such as contact name, title, phone number, email address, and other possibly personally identifiable information. Such personally identifiable information may also be collected by us through your voluntary submission of information as part of requesting a print catalog (for example, via “Request a Catalog”), subscribing to our email list (for example, via “Subscribe to Our E-Mail List”), and otherwise submitting messages via the Site specifically to our Customer Service or Overstock teams.
Unique does not share your email address or any other personally identifiable information with any third parties, except certain third party service providers where solely for our own business purposes, such as customer account evaluation, order fulfillment, or to provide services to us. These service providers may have access to personally identifiable information only as needed to perform their functions.
What Tracking Information Does Unique Industries Collect?
When you visit the Site, we may send one or more “cookies” — a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters — to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and helps enhance your navigation through the Site. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Site (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take on the Site), and allow us or our business partners to track your usage of the Site over time and to understand trends. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser, and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
We also use standard internet analytics tools, such as third-party web “tags,” to collect non-personally identifiable information about visitors to the Site, and to help analyze where visitors go and what they do while visiting our Site.
Unique uses collected information for the following general purposes: contact with potential customers; understanding and evaluating trends; general research; and Site improvements.
How Unique Stores Its Data
Unique uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run our site. The technical processing and transmission of data, including that which has been provided by you, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks, and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
We take reasonable steps to protect your information and data that has been transmitted to us through the Site, and to protect such information and data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. You should keep in mind, however, that no internet transmission is 100% secure or error-free, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via the Site, e-mail, or other electronic means.
