Collection of Personal Information
Personal Information You Provide. We may collect and store any identifiable information that you choose to provide in connection with your use of the website and share that information with our parent, subsidiaries, affiliated companies and trusted business partners. This may include personally identifiable information (such as your name, shipping address, billing address, email address, phone number and credit card number) that we need in order to process your orders, communicate with you, or provide you with services that you request.
Information that you give us may be combined with other personally identifiable information (such as order history and demographic information) from third-party sources to make our marketing efforts more efficient. Examples of other information we receive from third-party sources include updated delivery and address information, which we use to correct our records and deliver your next purchase or catalog more easily.
Uses of Personal Information About You
Financial information that is collected is used to bill you for products that you request. Contact information from the order form is used to send orders and information about our company to you. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings as described below (see “How to remove your name from our mailing, sharing or email list” below).
If you provide your email address through our website, we will send you emails about Provisions products, and we’ll also send you information and advertisements related to Patagonia apparel products. These emails will inform you of the launch of new products, of special sales, of promotional offers from our partners, of environmental issues we think are important, and of other events taking place in our stores near you. If you currently receive our emails and do not wish to continue receiving them, please see the “How to remove your name from our mailing, sharing or email list” section below. If you choose to unsubscribe from receiving emails about Provisions, you will also no longer receive emails about Patagonia apparel and equipment – and vice versa.
We use your shipping address to ship your products to you and to send catalogs and other mailings to you. We use your billing address, if different than your shipping address, to verify your billing information. We never share our customer names or addresses, e-mail addresses or other personally identifiable information, other than to the extent described in the “Disclosures of Your Information” section below. If you do not wish to receive catalogs or other mailings from us, please see the “How to remove your name from our mailing, sharing or email list” section below.
