HOW DOES SUISSEMADE.COM USE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED ONLINE?

Suissemade.com uses the personal information we collect from you: (i) to deliver products that you have ordered; (ii) to fulfill requests that you have created; (iv) to contact you or the product recipient(s) in the event of order or delivery difficulties, for verification purposes; (v) to respond to your inquiries; (vi) to develop our products and deliver information to you about our services, products, promotions or Web site, including (if you have not opted-out) adding you to the Suissemade email list and the Suissemade mailing list; and (vii) to enter you in online contests and sweepstakes that may be offered from time to time.

If you have a Suissemade.com Account you may save personal information in that Account, such as name, shipping and billing addresses, and credit card information, and we will access this saved information to make your shopping quicker and easier. We require you to create and/or access your Account to use various services on the Web site, such as Order Status, Wish List, and creating a product review. Because you must create or access your Suissemade.com Account prior to using these services, it is possible that we could associate you with the information you provide through these services.


The information you include in a Wish List, product review, Customer Conversation or Story may be used by us to send you information about the types of products in which you have indicated an interest. The information you provide when using the Order Status feature on our Web site is only used to assist you in tracking your shopping order(s). Because some of our surveys require you to provide self-identifying information, we may use information you provide to us in survey responses to enhance and personalize our product offerings to you.

INFORMATION WE SHARE WITH THIRD PARTIES

We will use third parties to help us provide services to you and to give us comparative information on the performance of our site and our microsites. These services include such things as operating our Web site, monitoring site activity, conducting surveys, processing shopping, maintaining our database, processing product reviews, Customer Conversations and Stories (including photographs and videos submitted with Stories) and administering and monitoring emails, surveys, drawings or contests. Third party service providers may also assist us in offering, running and monitoring microsites where you will provide personal information about yourself and possibly about your friends. The microsites may also include a means for you to access and download information from your existing email address books through the service provider so you can more easily share our offers with your friends. Third parties assisting us with microsites may only use personal information collected on those sites for the purpose of providing services for us and you.

Suissemade.com may use third parties or on its own conduct various surveys to better understand your experience with our Web site. In some cases you will provide self-identifying information, in which case we would then be able to associate your responses to you. In other cases we will only receive the aggregate results (not personally identifiable) from these third parties. If you participate in an online survey at our Web site that is conducted by a third party provider, you may be asked to download a small software application and the information you provide may be subject to the third party provider's linked privacy policy. You should read any such linked privacy policy before you participate in the online survey. You may also choose to not participate in the online surveys with linked third party privacy policies.

If you choose to write a product review, submit an inquiry or response for a Customer Conversation or submit a Story (along with a photograph and video) you will be providing it to a third party who we use to process these submissions. Product reviews, inquiries and responses to Customer Conversations and Stories (and photographs and videos, if submitted) that comply with the Review Rules may be published on this Web site, and some may be published in our stores, emails, online marketing and/or catalogs. Published reviews, Conversations and Stories (and photographs and videos, if submitted) will identify the author's nickname, location, responses and/or images in photographs or videos (if submitted by you and compliant with the rules and terms of use).

There is a possibility that Suissemade could merge with, acquire, or be acquired by another business entity. If such an action occurs, some or all of the personal information collected about you would be shared with this entity, as well as retained by Suissemade.

You should be aware that we may disclose specific information about you if necessary to do so by law or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with the law or is necessary to protect the users of our Web site, the site or the public.
