    Thank you for visiting crocs.ca, including the Crocs online store. This Website is operated by Crocs Retail, Inc., located at 7477 East Dry Creek Parkway, Niwot, CO 80503. Your access to and use of this Website is subject to the following Privacy Policy and all applicable laws.

    We understand your concerns about privacy and we want to assure you that Crocs takes privacy matters seriously. Therefore, we are providing this Privacy Policy explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information, including your Personal Information, is collected and used. If you have questions regarding this Privacy Policy, you may direct them to privacy@crocs.com.

    Your Consent

    By submitting information to us and/or by using our Website, you give your consent that all information that you submit, including your Personal Information, may be processed by Crocs in the manner and for the purposes described below. If you do not agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy, you may not access or use this Website.

    Definitions

    The term “Content” refers to all of the software and code comprising or used to operate this Website, and all of the text, photographs, images, illustrations, graphics, sound recordings, video and audio-video clips, and other materials available on this Website.

    The terms “Crocs,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to Crocs Retail, Inc.

    The term “Feedback” refers to the Content you post on or through this Website that is specifically about how we can improve this Website and the products and services we make available through this Website.

    The term“personal information” or “PI” means information about you that could permit one to identify or contact you. Examples of PI include your name, address, and email address.

    The term “Terms of Use” refer to these terms of use.

    The term “User-Generated Content” refers to all of the text, photographs, images, illustrations, graphics, sound recordings, video, audio-video clips, and other material that you post on or through our Website using the social networking tools we make available to you and that does not constitute Feedback. One way that User-Generated Content differs from other information you provide to us is that, once submitted, User-Generated Content is made available instantaneously to others.

    The term “Website” refers to crocs.com, including the Crocs online store, which is owned and operated by Crocs Retail, Inc.

    The terms “you” and “your” mean any user of this Website.

    What type of information does Crocs collect?

    We collect two types of information from visitors to the Website, “Automatic Anonymous Information,” or “AAI,” (which does not, in and of itself, identify you personally) and “Personal Information,” or “PI” which is individually identifiable information about you that could permit one to identify or contact you.

    Information You Manually Provide. We collect the PI you manually provide (using your keyboard, touchpad, and/or mouse) when you use our Website. At various places on the Website, we may request certain PI, such as your name, phone number, email, billing address, shipping address and other PI. You may choose to provide PI in order to access or use certain features or services of the Website, such as making a purchase, registering on the Website, entering a contest or sweepstakes, filling out a survey, or providing Feedback. Where possible, we indicate which fields of information are required and which fields are optional. You can always choose not to provide information, but you may not be able to use a particular service or feature on the Website.

    Information From Third-Party Social Media Platforms. You may be able to register, log-on, or enhance your profile on our Website by choosing to automatically populate the requested data fields with information you previously provided to a third-party social media platform. By doing this, you are asking the third-party platform to send us information from your profile on that platform. We treat that information as we do any other information you give to us when you register, log-on, or enhance your profile. After you have connected, the third party may also send us additional information from your profile that allows us to offer certain functionalities on the pages you view.

    Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser. We collect information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser. It typically includes your IP address, the address of the web page you were visiting when you accessed our Website, the name of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, and the date and time of your visit. The information we receive depends on the settings on your web browser. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings. We use this information to improve the Content and functionality of this Website, and to better understand and serve our visitors. The information we receive from your web browser does not, in and of itself, identify you personally. However, we may combine it with other information in an attempt to identify you or we may combine it with information that does identify you.

    Information from your mobile or tablet device. Likewise, if you download one of our mobile or tablet applications or access our Website through your mobile or tablet device, we may automatically collect certain information from or about your device. The types of information we may collect include the type of device you use, your device’s unique ID, the IP address of your device, your device’s operating system, the type of mobile or tablet Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use our mobile or tablet application.

    Information Collected Using “Cookies” and Other Web Technologies. Most websites use “cookies” and/or similar technologies to place information about a user’s visit to that website in a small data text file that is stored on the user’s computer. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you may be able to configure your browser to prevent the use of cookies. Crocs may use cookies to make our services available or easier for you to use. For instance, we may use cookies to store preferences or to store items in your shopping cart between visits. We may also store PI or AAI in cookies to improve our services and facilitate your use of the Website, or to enable Crocs or our third-party advertising partners to display targeted advertisements which we think would be of interest to you. Acceptance of cookies is not a requirement to browse our Website, however certain features and services may require the use of cookies to work properly, including our shopping cart and check out features. If you would like to place an order on our Website without the use of cookies, please email Customer Service.

    In addition to cookies, we may also use “web beacons” and other web technologies to manage our Website and email. A web beacon is a small bit of computer code. Web beacons may be used to count how many people visit a web page or tell us whether an email has been opened. We may link the information we collect using web beacons and other web technologies to information that identifies you personally.

    Cookies Delivered by Third Parties

    In addition to the cookies we deliver to your computer through our Website, certain third parties may deliver cookies to you for a variety of reasons. For example, we are a Google Trusted Store and third parties may be placing and reading cookies on your browser, or using web beacons or similar technologies to collect information in connection with the Google Trusted Stores program. To learn more about the Google Trusted Store program, click here. We also use Google Analytics, a web analytics tool that helps us understand how visitors engage with our Website. To learn more about Google Analytics, click here. Other third parties may deliver cookies to your computer for the purpose of tracking your online behaviors across non-affiliated websites and delivering targeted advertisements either on our Website or on other websites.

    You have choices about the collection of information by third parties on our Website. For example, if you don’t want information about your visit to our Website sent to Google Analytics, you may download an Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here. Please note that the Add-on does not prevent information from being sent to Crocs.

    In addition, if you would like to opt-out of having interest-based information collected by certain entities during your visits to our Website or other websites, please click here. You will be directed to an industry-developed website that contains mechanisms for choosing whether each listed entity may collect and use data for online behavioral advertising purposes. It may be that some of the third parties that collect interest-based information on our Website do not participate in the industry-developed opt-out website, in which case the best way to avoid third-party tracking of your online behaviors may be through your browser settings and deletion of cookies.

    Our Use of Your Information

    Generally, we use the information we collect through our Website:

    • to provide the information, products and services you request;
    • to provide you with effective customer service;
    • to provide you with a personalized experience when you use our Website;
    • to contact you with information and notices related to your use of our Website;
    • to contact you with special offers and other information we believe will be of interest to you (in accordance with any privacy preferences you have expressed to us);
    • to invite you to participate in surveys and provide Feedback to us (in accordance with any privacy preferences you have expressed to us);
    • to improve the Content, functionality and usability of our Website;
    • to better understand your needs and interests;
    • to improve our products and services;
    • to improve our marketing and promotional efforts;
    • for security, credit or fraud prevention purposes; and
    • for any other purpose identified in an applicable privacy notice, click-through agreement or other agreement between you and us.

    When you enter a contest or other promotion, we may ask you for certain PI such as your name, address and/or email address in order to administer the contest, to send you promotional emails, notify winners and make the winners’ list publicly available pursuant to applicable law. Your consent to such promotional use and disclosure of this information is a condition of your participation. In cases where the sweepstakes or promotional offer is co-branded with or sponsored by another party, we may share your information, with your consent, with that party. Entering such contests and providing the required PI in these instances is solely your choice; you do not need to provide such information or enter such contests to browse this Website.

    If you provide us with your email address as part of a purchase transaction on our Website, or if you choose to receive communications from Crocs, we may periodically send you newsletters, emails featuring exclusive sales and promotions, and emails requesting your Feedback on our products and services. In addition, if you make a purchase on our Website, we will send you order and shipping confirmation emails. You can remove your email from our email list at any time. To learn how, read the “Accessing and Updating Your Information” section below. Accessing and Updating Your Information. You may also click on the “unsubscribe” link in every Crocs email or send an email to customerservice@crocs.com with “Opt-out” in the subject line.

    Steps We Take to Safeguard your Information

    We maintain reasonable administrative, physical and technological measures to protect the confidentiality and security of information you submit on or through our Website in accordance with applicable legislation and regulations. For example, when collecting credit card information for online purchases, we offer secured-service transactions that encrypt your information in transit to thwart others from intercepting or misusing it. Unfortunately, no website, server, or database is completely secure or “hacker proof.” We therefore cannot guarantee that your PI will not be disclosed, misused or lost by accident or by the unauthorized acts of others. Further, we cannot control dissemination of PI contained in User-Generated Content you post on or through our Website, and you should have no expectation of privacy in such information.

    How Does Crocs Share the Information it Receives?

    Crocs may share the AAI and/or PI submitted on or through this Website in the following ways:

    Third–Party Service Providers. Crocs shares information collected through this Website with third-party service providers who act for or on its behalf. For example, we may use third-party vendors to design, operate, and/or host our Sites, to conduct surveys, and to help us with our promotional efforts. These third parties may need information about you to perform their functions. Typically, third-party service providers who receive PI are bound by contract to use it only on our behalf. However, some of our service providers, such as our advertising partners, are permitted to collect AAI through our Website and use that AAI in connection with providing services to nonaffiliated third parties. For more information about behavioral advertising and third-party cookies, read the “Cookies Delivered by Third Parties” section above. Cookies Delivered by Third Parties.

    Other Users of This Website. The User-Generated Content you submit on or through our Website is available to others who visit our Website. Any PI contained in User-Generated Content you submit can be read, collected, or used by others, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. In addition, we may use User-Generated Content you submit on or through our Website for advertising campaigns and other promotions. We may or may not use your name in connection with such use, and we may or may not seek your consent before using the User-Generated Content for such purposes. Therefore, you should have no expectation of privacy with respect to User-Generated Content you submit on or through our Website. You should not submit any User-Generated Content you do not wish to make available to the general public, and you must take special care to make sure your submissions comply with our Terms of Use. http://www.crocs.ca/terms-of-use/privacy-security-terms,en_CA,pg.html In particular, your submissions must not violate the privacy or other rights of others.

    Third-Party Social Media Platforms. We may provide functionality on our Website that allows you to automatically post information about the actions you take on our Website to a third-party social media platform. If you choose to take advantage of this functionality, people with access to your profile on the third-party platform may be able to see the actions you have taken—for example, the items you have purchased. Thus, you should have no expectation of privacy in those actions. Further, if you choose to link your profile on our Website with an account on a third-party social media platform, we may share the information in your profile with that third-party platform.

    Affiliates and Subsidiaries. We may share your information with our affiliates and subsidiaries for their own marketing purposes. Before doing so, however, we may offer you the opportunity to “opt out” or “opt in” as required by applicable law.

    Business Partners. From time to time, we may share your information with selected third parties (other than our service providers, affiliates, or subsidiaries) for their own marketing purposes. For example, in cases where a sweepstakes or promotional offer is co-branded with or sponsored by another party, we may share your information, with your consent, with that party. In some cases, you may not be able to participate in a contest or take advantage of a promotion unless you consent to disclosure to our business partner of the information you submit in connection with the contest or promotion.

    Business Negotiations. We may contemplate, for strategic or other reasons, selling, buying, merging, or otherwise reorganizing one or more of our businesses. In negotiating with a third party about entering into such an arrangement, we may need to disclose your information. In such cases, we will take reasonable measures to protect the information we disclose, for example, by requiring a prospective purchaser to sign a non-disclosure agreement limiting the use and protecting the confidentiality of the information.

    Business Transfers. We may transfer the information you submit on or through our Website to any organization that acquires or merges with us.

    Compliance With Laws and Protection of Our Rights and the Rights of Others. Crocs may be obligated to cooperate with various law enforcement inquiries. Crocs reserves the right to share or transfer PI to comply with a legal requirement, disclose any activities or PI about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, determine necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, for the administration of justice, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to legal liability.

    As Described in a Privacy Notice. We reserve the right to disclose your information as described in any privacy notice posted on a page of our Website where you provide that information. By providing your PI on that page you will be consenting to the disclosure of your PI as described in that privacy notice.

    As Described in a Click–Through Agreement. We reserve the right to disclose your information as described in any click–through agreement to which you have agreed.

    Links to Other Sites

    This Privacy Policy applies only to our Website. You may visit other websites, through links on our Website, which may collect, use and share your PI or AAI in accordance with their own privacy policies. The information practices of those websites linking from or to our Website are not covered by this Privacy Policy, and we encourage you to be very cautious before you disclose your PI to others. If you register for Crocs on another website or use a website providing a service for Crocs, that website may provide PI or AAI about you and your transactions back to Crocs.

    Accessing and Updating Your Information

    You always have the opportunity to review and change the information you provide to us by logging into the Website and entering in the new information yourself. You can edit your name, contact information and preferences by logging into the “My Account” section of the site.

    To alert you to these changes, we will provide a notice at the top of this Privacy Policy for at least 30 days after the new effective date. Unless the change is a minor change (such as a change in our contact information) or a non-substantive change (such as the reformatting of our Privacy Policy), we will also post notices (a) on our home page and/or on the relevant pages of our Website and (b) on any notice providing highlights of this Privacy Policy for 30 days after the new effective date to alert you to the change.

    From time to time, for example, because of changes in the law or technology or the way we operate our business, we may ask your permission to use the PI we have collected from you in new or different ways. We will do this by sending you a notice by email at the last email address you provided us, asking you to agree to the change. If you do not expressly agree to the change, we may, at our discretion, delete all or some of your PI from our databases to avoid using your information in ways to which you have not consented.

    You may access the current version of this Privacy Policy at any time by clicking on the link marked “Privacy Policy” at the bottom of each page of our Website.
