Types of personal information we collect
We collect and store personal information that you give us when you shop at one of our locations, register on our website, complete an application, request a catalog, place an order, enroll in a promotional program, submit for a rebate, call us, or send us a letter or e-mail. This information may include your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, credit card number and expiration date, and other optional demographic information.
How we use and share personal information
We use the personal information we collect to process your orders, identify you within our systems, contact you if we have questions about your order, notify you about new services or special promotional programs, and submit for rebates. SafetyNerds.com and the sponsoring manufacturer will have access to any rebate information you provide.
We share your personal information within the SafetyNerds.com family of businesses and with third parties that perform services for us or on our behalf (for example, credit card companies, financial institutions, shipping companies, printing houses, consultants and advisors, market research firms and rebate processors) and when, in our judgment, we believe it is necessary or appropriate to prevent fraud, injury, or harm to persons or property, to protect our rights or the rights of others, to comply with applicable laws and regulations, or as otherwise required by law. We limit the scope of the information provided to third parties, and we allow its use only for the purposes for which it was disclosed. Personal information may be transferred in connection with a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, insolvency, or asset sale involving any SafetyNerds.com® business or asset to which the information pertains. If you shop through our catalog, or via SafetyNerds.com®, we may share your name and mailing address for external direct mail campaigns conducted by companies or organizations which offer products or services we believe may be of interest to our customers.
