To Whom this Statement applies
What Information do we collect?
We collect various types of information depending on your use of our site.
When you become a Bazaar Inc. registered user
We initially ask for your name, phone number, e-mail and zip code during your first registration with us on our home page. This allows us to immediately respond to you through e-mail and tells us geographically where you are located so the salesperson assigned to your area can follow-up with you. When requesting our catalogs our registration asks for a few more details so we can better serve your needs. Any information collected with detailed questions and category interests is strictly to help us offer services and products that may be of interest to you. However, we will respect your decision if you decline to answer.
When you order from us
We collect your name, billing address, shipping address, e-mail address, phone number, credit card number (including expiration date and security code,) and promotional coupon number [if any]. We will also retain a record of your purchases and credit card information for future billing use. If you ask us to NOT retain that information we will delete it upon your request after the completion of your sale.
Maintaining security of your personal information is a high priority to us, so we have taken numerous steps to ensure that it is processed confidentially, accurately and securely. Our website uses encryption technology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to protect your personal information during data transport. SSL encrypts ordering information such as your name, address and credit card number.
When you apply for a credit line
You will be asked to provide your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and other reference information needed to verify your identity, such as your business details. This information is required to process your application.
We may acquire customer lists from other parties
Our policy is to acquire lists of people who have indicated that they are willing to receive e-mail offers. Each time we send an e-mail offer, we provide people with the opportunity to unsubscribe from receiving future e-mails or mailing offers.
When you submit comments or feedback
We welcome your comments sent through our website. Any written submissions (feedback, suggestions, ideas, original work of any kind) sent to The Bazaar, Inc. shall exclusively remain property of The Bazaar, Inc. We will not reveal any information you disclose, but we hold the right to use the data for our own analysis. Your identity will remain anonymous.
How Do We Use Your Information?
We may or may not use your information in the following ways:
To serve you better
We might combine the information you provide to us online, in our showroom, or through our sales staff to personalize our services, which include, but is not limited to, providing better product recommendations or special offers that we think may be of interest to you.
To enhance your online shopping experience
For example, we may use it to recognize you and welcome you to the site.
For marketing and promotional purposes
For example, we send out e-mail and direct mail to our customers about products or events that we think may be of interest to them. We also may send offers on new items, upcoming trade show information, or industry news to keep you informed.
Do We Share Your Information?
The Bazaar Inc. respects your privacy. We do not sell, rent, loan, or transfer any personal information regarding our customers to any unrelated third parties. All the information that is gathered is used for internal marketing purposes.
Can I Access My Information?
If you are a registered customer of The Bazaar, Inc., you can access and even update your information (including billing and shipping preferences) under the My Account section on our website.
Is It Secure to place an order on thebazaarinc.com?
Yes. We use Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") for secure transmissions. SSL applies encryption to provide confidentiality between two communicating applications, such as your PC and our Internet server. Encryption is defined as a process for scrambling data to prevent illicit entry into a system or interception of information as it travels over the network. That's why you must use an SSL enabled browser to access thebazaarinc.com. When your data is transmitted over the Internet, it is encrypted at the sending end and then decrypted at the receiving end.
What Are Cookies and Do We Use Them?
A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a website that is saved on your hard drive by your computer's browser. Cookies can be used by a web site to recognize you, but that does not necessarily mean any personal information is stored in the cookies. We do not store personal information about you in the cookies. We use session cookies. Session cookies exist only for as long as your browser remains open. Meaning, once you close your browser window the cookies (and all its information) disappear. We use session cookies to maintain information we need to have in order for you to shop on our website thebazaarinc.com. For example, the Session ID cookie that we ask your browser to record might be the ID for your order. Without the Session ID cookie, you cannot add merchandise to your shopping order and carry it to Checkout. Anything you choose to tell us about yourself (such as your address and e-mail address) is stored safely and separately on our servers. You will be prompted to provide a password to access this information every time.
