The Information We Collect and How It is Used
The information that you may provide to us includes, but is not limited to: names, billing addresses, shipping addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers, credit card numbers, expiration dates and security codes, information regarding orders, birth month and demographic information. You can choose not to submit this information to us, but you may not be able to complete transactions unless you provide the required information. The Hillman Group does not retain credit card information (e.g. credit card number, expiration date or security codes).
If you request product information or submit a Contact form, we may save your email address as well as any other information you may provide. This information may be used to contact you in the future by mail, email, or phone to convey information about our solutions or services that we feel may benefit you. Your email and other information you provide will not be sold to any third party.
This information is used for the purpose for which it was collected. For example, the information is used to process, track, ship orders, to send order and shipping confirmations, to manage billing and payment processes, to provide emails, newsletters, and other communications you have requested, to process employment applications, and to provide customer service.
When using our key duplication and engraving kiosks, we may ask you to provide personally identifiable information, which is information that identifies you as a specific identified individual, such as your name, address, phone number, or email address (collectively, “Personal Information”), and payment information. For example, this personal information may be collected from you in order to provide you with an email receipt following a purchase transaction and to provide you with promotional offers or information.
Sharing of Personal Information
Occasionally, with your permission, we will send marketing information to you, such as discount offers, information about new product offerings, etc. However, if you do not elect to receive such materials, we will not send them to you. If you initially elect to receive such materials, but later change your mind, you may opt out from receiving such materials in the future by using our Contact form to contact us or by unsubscribing to our marketing emails.
Companies may from time to time be engaged by The Hillman Group to perform a variety of functions, such as fulfilling orders, assisting with promotions, providing technical services for our web site, etc. These companies may have access to personal information if needed to perform such functions. However, these companies may only use such personal information for the purpose of performing that function and may not use it for any other purpose.
The Hillman Group does not sell, transfer or disclose personal information to third parties. However, we may on occasion send marketing information on behalf of one of our business partners about products or services they provide that may be of interest to you. The Hillman Group will not share your personal information with such partners but rather will send a mailing or email on behalf of those partners. The Hillman Group reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety.
Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information
The Hillman Group may disclose information when legally compelled to do so; in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.
