In order to best serve you, we maintain practices and procedures designed to ensure the security, integrity and confidentiality of your information. We restrict and limit access to your information only to those of our employees or our trusted service providers who need it to carry out their business functions and we educate our employees about safeguarding customer information and preventing its unauthorized access, disclosure or use. This being said, the Internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat these measures or use your information for improper purposes.
When you visit this site, we may gather information from you in a few instances. First, when you visit our site, we may collect certain information from you. Through the use of computer "cookies" (small pieces of information that are stored by the browser on your hard drive), we collect data, such as your IP address, browser type, domain name, and specific Kaz web pages through which you click. The cookies that are configured by us do not contain any personally identifying information, such as your name, or sensitive information, such as your credit card number. This data is collected automatically and utilized in aggregate to help us look for trends so that we can improve our website and your Kaz experience. The cookies also allow us to recognize you when you return to our site and to provide you with a customized experience that we feel will be of value to you. Most web browsers allow you to exercise control over cookie files on your computer by erasing them, blocking them, or notifying you when such a file is stored. Please take a look at your particular browser for instructions on this function. If you do elect to disable the Kaz cookie, please note that you may not be able to take full advantage of a personalized experience at Kaz. Second, we may ask you to voluntarily provide information in a few circumstances. When you purchase items, we will ask you to voluntarily provide certain personally identifiable information, such as, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit card number. We need this information to process and fulfill your order and notify you of order status. Other examples of when we may ask you to voluntarily provide personally identifiable information include if you subscribe to our email program (information such as your name and e-mail address), choose to provide us preference information (such as interests, product preferences, and items purchased), or when you enter a sweepstakes or promotion (information such as name, address and telephone number). Additionally, in order to provide you with goods and services designed to meet your needs, we may collect demographic information (such as number of household members, age, and gender), purchase preference information, and mailing lists from third parties. We use this information to customize your experience on our website and to provide you with the most relevant products and services. If you subscribe to our newsletter or other marketing materials on our website we will periodically send you emails about Helen of Troy products and services that may be of interest to you. You may unsubscribe to such communications by visiting here.
In certain circumstances, we may share your information with trusted service providers that need access to your information to provide operational or other support services. To ensure the confidentiality and security of your information, service providers must agree to safeguard your information in strict compliance with our policy.
We also may provide information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable law or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it. In the event of a sale of all or part of one of our businesses, we may share customer information related to that business as part of the transaction.
