Privacy Policy

At Pacific Coast Feather Company, we are committed to ensuring the privacy of our customers. This privacy policy explains our privacy practices for our customers who visit our web site at www.pacificcoast.com. By using our web site, you consent to the terms of this privacy policy. You may read about the details of our privacy policy below.

What is Personal Information?

Personal information is information that specifically identifies an individual such as a customer's name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card or other account number, and information about that individual's activities when directly linked to that person such as information about his or her purchases. Personal information also includes demographic information such as date of birth, gender, geographic area and preferences when such information is linked to other personal information that identifies you.

Personal information does not include "aggregate" information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no personal information will be included in the resulting data. Likewise, information about the products you purchase may be collected and combined with information about the products purchased by others. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and customer needs so that we can better consider new products and services, and tailor existing products and services to customer desires.

Personal Information We Collect

You provide personal information in a number of ways when you visit our web site. For example, you provide us with personal information when you: (1) purchase products; (2) register and set up an Account; (3) sign up for our e-mail newsletter; (4) submit a warranty registration; or (5) contact us by e-mail for any reason. When you visit our web site, some information is also automatically collected, such as your computer's Internet Protocol (IP) address, your computer's operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring web site, and the time and date of your visit and purchases. This information may be collected through the use of "cookies" or other devices (See Online Specifics below). We treat this information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the identifying information mentioned above. Otherwise, it is used in the aggregate only.

How We Use Personal Information.

In general, we use personal information to process your requests or transactions and provide you with high-quality service or to inform you about other products or services we think will be of interest. For example, we may use your account information to deliver products you have purchased or if you purchase a pillow on our web site, we may send you materials on how to wash and care for that pillow. When we use personal information in our marketing efforts, we provide you with choices (See Choice below) and do not disclose the information to third parties except as described in this privacy policy. Personal information provided online may be linked together or merged with other personal information so that we may better understand your needs and inform you about our products or services and those of our partners. In addition, if we receive information from third parties with whom we have business relationships, we may combine this information with the other personal information we maintain about you. In either case, this privacy policy governs this information.

Security

We have put into place reasonable security measures in an effort to protect personal information while it is under our control. All personal information relating to our customers is stored in a secure environment separate from our web site. Orders placed on our web site are protected by an encryption technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to ensure privacy and security when submitting an order. Your account information is accessible online only through the use of a password. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all uses of our web site by any person using your password. Please advise us immediately if you believe your password has been misused.

Sharing of Personal Information

We do not sell, rent or share personal information with third parties without your prior consent except in the limited circumstances described in this privacy policy. We may share personal information with third-party vendors who assist us in performing internal functions necessary to operate our business. These functions may include sending promotional e-mails on our behalf, serving advertisements on our behalf, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments; and fulfilling and delivering orders. In all cases we limit the information shared with our third-party vendors to that which is necessary to carry out those functions. Moreover, we require them to comply with our privacy practices, keep the information confidential and not to use it for other purposes except as required by law. We are not responsible for any additional information you provide directly to these parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their practices before disclosing information directly to them.

In addition, we may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process or authorities, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Pacific Coast Feather Co., our customers, our employees or the public. Information about our customers, including personal information, may be disclosed or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets or acquisition.

Online Specifics

1. Cookies Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer by a web site to give you a unique identification. We use cookies on our web site to help optimize your shopping experience. For example, we use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, to keep track of your shopping cart or store your shipping information for delivery of future orders. We may also use cookies to determine if you came to our web site from a particular link or banner advertisement. Cookies cannot be used to retrieve personal information about you from your computer. Cookies may be linked to personal information about you.

2. Transparent GIF Files, Pixels, Web beacons and Action Tags From time to time we contract with third party companies to help us better provide relevant products and services to you. Some of these companies use Transparent GIF Files (also known as Pixels, Web beacons and Action Tags). A transparent GIF file is a transparent image that has been placed on a Web page and sends a signal when a user has visited that page. A transparent GIF file does not contain any personal information and we do not link transparent GIFs to personal information about you.

Currently, we use pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. Our ad management partner, DoubleClick, provides these GIF files. These files enable DoubleClick to recognize a unique cookie on your Web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our web site. The cookie was placed by us, or by another advertiser who works with DoubleClick. With both cookies and Spotlight technology, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address. For more information about DoubleClick, including information about how to opt out of these technologies, go to http://www.doubleclick.net/us/corporate/privacy.
