COOKIES

Secondly, when you contact us, your Web browser will automatically place certain files in your computer that will let us recognize your computer when you contact us on-line. These information files are called "cookies." Through the use of cookies, we will automatically recognize your computer when you place an order or ask for information every time you contact us. You can always disable cookies by following instructions in the Help section of your browser. In addition to using cookies to "recognize" your computer, we also automatically gather certain information about your computer, the pages you visit on our website, and the kinds of orders you place or questions you ask when you contact our website. We do not sell or lease this information to anyone else. We do use it to assess the effectiveness of our website and to try to provide you with timely information that we believe will be of interest to you.

IP ADDRESSES

When you come to palladiumboots.com our servers log your IP address. We do not use this information in combination with any personal information. For example, we know your computer was here, but not who was on the computer.

PALLADIUM POLICY ON CUSTOMER INFORMATION

We do not sell personal information to any third party, nor do we have any plans to do so. However, we may share your personal information with our agents, representatives, service providers and contractors for limited purposes, including but not limited to, fulfilling customer orders; offering certain products and services in connection with this Site; communicating to customers; providing customer service; enhancing and improving customers' shopping experience; administering or facilitating surveys, contests or sweepstakes; offering targeted marketing communications to users; providing a personalized shopping experience; preventing fraud; and completing payment processing.

Our database of personal information is a valuable asset. Therefore, if we sell or transfer an affiliate, business or line of business, we may transfer personal information used or held by that affiliate or business or used in connection with that line of business to the buyer, so long as the buyer agrees that the personal information we transfer will remain subject to this privacy policy.

Of course, we may disclose your personal information if you give us permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the disclosure is required to prevent harm or injury (such as product recalls, fraud, claims or other liability), or to comply with legal processes (subpoenas, warrants) or as otherwise required by law.

By personal information, we mean information that we collect and store in a way that allows us to relate it to you personally or to your family, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing or billing address and phone number. This privacy policy applies only to personal information. We may freely use, disclose or sell information that is not specifically associated with you personally or your family (such as statistics or aggregate information about our customers or website visitors.)

If our privacy policies change, we will post a notice here, so please check this page regularly. You understand that the privacy policy in effect at any time applies to all personal information held by Palladium, whether or not that privacy policy was in effect when the information was collected. For that reason, we will provide customers with the means to let us know that they want us to delete information about them from our database. You may feel free to contact us for this purpose at cs@palladiumboots.com. You will need to give us your full name and e-mail address.
