INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
We collect information from you in several different ways on this Site . One goal in collecting personal information from you is to provide an efficient, meaningful, and customized experience. For example, we can use your personal information to:
- help make the site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
- help you quickly find information, products, and services.
- help us create content that is most relevant to you.
- alert you to new information, products, and services that we offer.
(a) Registration and Ordering. Before ordering products, you must complete an online registration form. This registration and ordering process is powered by a third-party lens ordering and fulfillment system named yourlens. During registration, you will be prompted to provide to us certain personal information, including but not limited to your name, shipping and billing address(es), phone number, e-mail address, and credit-card number. We do not share your information outside of the yourlens system; these kinds of personal information are used for billing purposes, to fulfill your orders, and to communicate with you about your order. If we encounter a problem when processing your order, your personal information may be used to contact you.
(b) E-mail Communications. We use return e-mail addresses to answer the e-mail we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. We may also use the e-mail addresses provided during newsletter sign-ups for internal marketing purposes. To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from BestBuyContacts.com 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.
(c) Cookies and Other Technology. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits. Most Internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies. Viewers have the option to accept or disable cookies at any time through their browsers. Visit the “help” portion of your toolbar for more information. If you block or refuse to accept cookies, or delete cookies between visits to the Site, you may not be able to access or use certain features or functions of our Site. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of BestBuyContacts.com’s coolest features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on. THE SITE’S COOKIES DO NOT AND CANNOT INFILTRATE A USER’S HARD DRIVE TO GATHER A USER’S CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. We may use third-party advertising companies to help tailor site content to users or to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness (such as which web pages are visited or what products are purchased and in what amount). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies is not linked to any personal information collected by us.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
OUR COMMITMENT TO DATA SECURITY
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Only employees who need access to your personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to your personal information. Finally, we rely on third-party service providers for the physical security of some of our computer hardware. We believe that their security procedures are adequate. For example, when you visit the Site, you access servers that are kept in a secure physical environment, behind a locked cage and an electronic firewall.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. Users of our Site are required to be at least 18 years old, and any user under 18 is not an authorized user. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13. If you are under 18, you may use our Site only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
HOW YOU CAN ACCESS OR CORRECT YOUR INFORMATION
Upon your request, we will (a) correct or update your personal information; (b) stop sending e-mails to your e-mail address; and/or (c) disable your account to prevent any future purchases through that account. You can make these requests by e-mailing your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not e-mail your credit-card number or other sensitive information.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
