We collect and store personally identifiable information that you provide to us through this Website or others that we operate, through our customer service representatives, at events, through mobile applications, through marketing efforts, including contests, sweepstakes and events, and through third parties, or any other way we interact with you. We are one of the VF Corporation family of brands and may also receive information about you from other brands held by VF Corporation.
When you open an account or place an order, we may request, collect and store some or all of the following types of personal information: name, billing address, shipping address, email address, telephone number, financial and payment information, such as credit card number and expiration date, order history, order status, gender, personal interests, birthday, or information about a third party you provide when we ship an order.
When you download or use our mobile applications, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services like local store information, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow users to disable location services by using controls located in the device's settings menu. If you have questions about how to disable your device's location services, please contact your mobile service carrier or your device manufacturer.
You may also provide us information to be published or displayed (hereinafter, “posted”) on public areas of the Website (“User Content”), which we may use to continue to improve the products and services offered. User Content is posted on the Website and/or transmitted to others at your own risk. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users of the Website with whom you may choose to share User Content. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
Information We Collect Automatically
We collect and store certain other non-personally identifiable information automatically whenever you interact with us, such as:
Cookies: Like many websites, we use “cookies,” which are small text files that a website sends and stores on your computer through your browser. Cookies do not contain personally identifiable information. Cookies help us to identify account holders and to optimize their shopping experience. For example, cookies also allow us to hold selections in a shopping cart when a user leaves this Website without checking out. Cookies are not used on this Website to store your account information; this information is stored securely on this Website's server. Most browsers accept cookies automatically but allow you to disable them. By disabling or otherwise rejecting cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings on this Website. We recommend that you leave cookies "turned on" so that we can offer you a better shopping experience on this Website.
Log File Information: In addition to cookies, we may also collect and use "log file information" from you. Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you access or use the Website, our servers automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, referring / exit pages and Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Website, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. In addition, some of our e-mail communications to you may include a "click-through URL" linked to a particular page on the website. By clicking on one of these URLs, you will automatically enter our website and we may collect information related to the "click-through." You may avoid having this information collected by not clicking on URL links in our e-mail communications.
Google Analytics: We also use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) to help analyze how visitors use this Website. Google Analytics (“GA”) uses a first-party cookie (the “GA Cookie”) to collect non-personally identifiable information automatically whenever users interact with this Website. For example, the GA Cookie collects site visitor information in an anonymous form, such as the browser and device-specific information, the IP address assigned to users on the date they visit this Website, how often they visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, the time spent on this site and what other sites they used prior to coming to this Website. Google Analytics collects your IP address rather than your name or other identifying information. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google, and Google Analytics does not share actual IP address information with us.
We also have updated the Google Analytics code on this Website to support Google Analytics for Display Advertising, which allows us to implement the following Google Analytics features: Google Display Network (GDN) Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. These additional Google Analytics features use a third-party DoubleClick cookie to report how your ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to your visits to this Website. We and other third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the GA Cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your visits to this Website and/or other sites on the Internet.
You can opt-out of the Google Analytics features that use the third-party DoubleClick cookie and/or customize your interest-based advertising settings by using Google’s Ads Settings. If you want to opt-out of Google Analytics across all websites that you use, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page and install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.
Our websites currently do not have a mechanism to recognize “Do Not Track” signals, but several of the third-party companies who utilize these cookies or beacons enable you to opt out of this advertising. If you wish to opt out of receiving this third-party interest-based advertising, you may obtain more information here. Please note this does not opt you out of receiving marketing communications from us.
