We may also disclose personal information where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspect loss or harm to persons or property.
As with many websites and applications, the Site uses “cookies” – small strings of data placed on users' personal computer hard drives during the exchange of data that happens when your browser points to one of our websites. Among other things:
- Cookies enable a site or application to identify a user's browser as a previous visitor by means of a unique string of numbers assigned on a previous visit;
- Cookies assist us in collecting information on the pages of our Sites that you access or visit, and in recording any preferences you indicate for use on our Sites;
- If you are browsing one of our Sites, a cookie identifies your browser and Site user ID and internet protocol number of your computer or other access device (but not your personal identity); and
SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We have implemented measures designed to protect personal information in our custody and control, including appropriate measures to protect the safety of credit and debit cards and other transactions in our Stores. We maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards in an effort to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of personal information in our custody and control. Unfortunately, no collection or transmission of information over the Internet or other publicly accessible communications networks can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and therefore, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any such information.
Your personal information may be protected with a password you select. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (such as letters, phone calls or email messages).
We have personal information retention processes designed to retain personal information of our customers for no longer than necessary for the purposes stated above or to otherwise meet legal requirements.

YOUR CONSENT IS IMPORTANT TO US
It is important to us that we collect, use or disclose your personal information only when we have your consent to do so. Your consent may be implied, deemed (using an opt-out mechanism) or expressed.
