What Personal Information About Customers Does Acuity World and our WebSite Gather?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at Acuity World and our WebSite. Here are the types of information we gather:
Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your web-browser accesses Acuity World. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at Acuity World if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
To help us make emails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open email from Acuity World if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.
Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
Does Acuity World and Website share the Information we receive?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control:
We work closely with our affiliated businesses. In some cases these businesses operate stores at Acuity World or sell offerings to you at Acuity World. In other cases, we operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines jointly with these businesses. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
