Protecting your privacy is important to col.com. We hope the following
policy will help you understand how col.com collects, uses, and safeguards
the personal information you provide on our web site.
If you browse the col.com website, you do so anonymously. We do not collect
personal information -- including your e-mail address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address
of your computer) to give us an idea of which parts of our web site you visit and how long you spend there.
But we do not link your IP address to anything personally identifiable. The only other information
automatically provided to us is the type of computer and operating system you are using. Your browser supplies
us with this information.
Like many other commercial web sites, the col.com website may use a standard technology
called a "cookie" to collect information about how you use the site.
At times we may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information, such as your e-mail
address, phone number, and postal address, for purposes such as corresponding with us, making a purchase, entering a sweepstakes, or
participating in an online survey.
We do not share your profile with anyone else outside of col.com without your consent, and no
one else can access your information.
If you provide us with your e-mail or postal address, or have done so in the past, we will ask you if we can use it
to send you updates on the latest col.com products and promotions. We also ask if you want us to
share your personal information with other companies that offer related services. If you do not want us or other companies
to contact you, you can choose to "opt out," and col.com will respect your wishes.
When you supply col.com with your personal information, we may use it to confirm a purchase, or to
learn more about our customers so that we can develop better products and services. We may also use the information to
inform you about new products, services and offers that may be of interest to you. These offers may be based on
information you provided in your initial transaction with us or in surveys.
Declining e-mail offers
col.com provides customers with an easy means to decline to receive e-mail offers. Although most
customers tell us they appreciate receiving notice of these opportunities, we recognize the importance of providing
you with choices. At any time, you may request to discontinue receiving these offers from us by simply replying to the
e-mail and informing us of your preferences. All e-mail offers that you receive from col.com will
tell you how to decline further e-mail offers.
While col.com product ad campaigns and marketing materials are often viewed by children, we do not
solicit data from them. col.com encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their
children and to participate in the interactive activities offered on the sites their children visit. No information should
be submitted to, or posted at, col.com web site by visitors under 18 years of age without the consent
of their parent or guardian. To view educational material on consumer privacy, please see http://www.ftc.gov/.
