Your Privacy Online
We are committed to ensuring your privacy when you shop online with Hammacher Schlemmer. In an effort to improve the online shopping experience at Hammacher.com, we do gather information about our visitors' shopping behavior, but we maintain sole ownership over this information and do not share, sell or rent our findings to third parties, except in the few cases described below.
Technologies other than http cookies may be used by third parties in a similar way, to recognize the email recipients’ computer or device and to keep track of which user identities match to which devices or browsers, and those technologies may not respond to browser settings that block conventional cookies. You may opt of many of these types of technologies by visiting the NAI’s opt out page at http://www.networkadvertising.org.
Placing an Order Online
When you place an order online at Hammacher.com, we request the information we need to complete your order. This information includes your full name, billing address, shipping address, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit card number.
The information you provide will be used to process your order and improve your shopping experience. Once you have placed an order with us, we will verify with your credit card company that your credit card is valid and send you an email message that confirms your order was successfully received. We will also send you an e-mail once your order has been shipped, or if it has been placed on backorder.
We will periodically send to your street or e-mail address product news and updates that you may find of interest. We NEVER share or sell our customers' e-mail addresses or telephone numbers for marketing purposes, but we do sometimes share other customer information with trusted third parties.
