This Policy also applies to information collected in the State of California through off-line means – such as information collected through Our stores, call centers or distribution centers. We encourage you to read this Policy before visiting any of Our stores, using Our Site, or providing information to us.
We collect two types of information: Personal Information and Other Information. "Personal Information" is information that relates to you as an identifiable specific individual. "Other Information" is any information that cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual.
Direct Information Collection
We collect Personal Information from you in various ways. While We obviously collect Personal Information from you directly, We can also use third party sources of information in order to fulfill the purposes set out in this Policy.
We collect information from you directly when you submit it to us, including by: (1) registering on the Site; (2) placing an order; (3) signing up for Our newsletter; (4) contacting us; or (5) participating in a Site promotion or survey. This information may include, for example, your name, email address, address, telephone number, date of birth and credit card information. We may combine the information We collect from you with information We receive about you from other sources, such as address update services or off line sources. If you use the Site's refer-a-friend mechanism, We will collect your friend's email address, for the purpose of sending them email.
Navigational Information Collection
We also collect Personal Information from you indirectly when you visit Our Site. Some of this information is Personal Information, and some of it is Other Information. Where Other Information is combined with Personal Information, We consider all of the combined information to be Personal Information.
When you visit the Site, We may collect certain technical information from you, including: your IP address, browser type, operating system and the domain name from which you accessed the Site. In addition, We collect information about your browsing behavior, such as the date and time you visit the Site, the areas or pages of the Site that you visit, the amount of time you spend viewing the Site, the number of times you return to the Site and other clickstream data.
We may also use web beacons on the Site, in Our emails and in Our advertisements on other Sites. Web beacons are tiny graphic images that are used to collect information about your Site visit, such as the pages you view and the features you use, as well as information about whether you open and/or act upon one of Our emails or advertisements. We also collect the URL of the Site you visited immediately before coming to the Site. Web beacons help Us analyze Our Site visitors' behavior and measure the effectiveness of the Site and Our advertising.
We may work with service providers that help Us track, collect and analyze this information. We may use third-party advertising and analytics companies that use tracking technologies to serve Our advertisements across the Internet. These companies may collect both Personal Information and pseudonymous information about your visits to the Site and other Sites and your interaction with Our advertising and other communications. Other companies may also use such companies to advertise on Our Site. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having your information used by these companies, click here NetworkAdvertising.org.
We note that Our Site will continue to operate as described in this Policy, whether or not a "Do Not Track" signal or similar mechanism is received from your browser.
If you are a resident of the State of California and would like to “opt-out” of Our sale of your Personal Information with these advertising and analytics companies, please review the “Exercising Your California Privacy Rights” section below.

Please note that any Personal Information that you voluntarily submit for posting to the Site (such as to a blog) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others.

This Site is intended for individuals over the age of eighteen (18) years of age who are able to enter into contracts on their own behalf. We do not direct the Site to, nor do We knowingly collect any Personal Information from, children under the age of thirteen (13) years of age.
Third Party Websites:
The Site is hosted from the United States. Users located outside of the United States consent to the transfer of their data to the United States for processing and use in accordance with this Policy. Sales and sale prices may not be valid outside of the United States.
Your California Privacy Rights:
If you are a resident of the State of California, you have certain rights regarding Our use and disclosure of your Personal Information, regardless of whether such information is collected by Us through the Site or otherwise. While these rights are not absolute, you generally have the right to 1) unsubscribe from promotional and marketing communications, 2) opt out of Our selling your information to third parties, and 3) request deletion of Personal Information when there is no longer a legitimate reason to keep it. You can exercise these rights as follows:
Receiving promotional emails: If you no longer want to receive promotional emails (such as information about new products, special offers and sales events) from Us on a going-forward basis, you may “unsubscribe” from receiving such communications by: clicking the "unsubscribe" link in any promotional email or contacting Us in accordance with the "Contacting Us" section below. In each case, please remember that, if you wish to unsubscribe from receiving all promotional emails from Us, you may need to unsubscribe separately with each brand (e.g. Snow Joe and Sun Joe).
Our selling of your Personal Information to Promotional Partners and other third parties for their marketing purposes: If you no longer want Us to sell your Personal Information on a going-forward basis to Our Promotional Partners and other third parties for their marketing purposes, you may opt-out of such sale by contacting Us in accordance with the "Contacting Us" section below. In so contacting us, please be sure to include your full name and the contact information that you no longer wish to be sold, and state specifically whether you wish to opt-out of such sale with (a) promotional partners, (b) other third parties, or (c) both. Additionally, We may need to ask for additional information in order to ensure that the Personal Information related to your opt-out request actually relates to you and not some other person.
Please note that We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under California law.
Deletion of Personal Information which is no longer a legitimate reason for Us to keep it: If you no longer want Us to retain your Personal Information on a going-forward basis, you may request deletion of Personal Information by contacting Us in accordance with the "Contacting Us" section below. In so contacting us, please be sure to include your full name and the contact information that you wish to be deleted. Additionally, We may need to ask for additional information in order to ensure that the Personal Information relating to your deletion request actually relates to you and not some other person.
Please Note: there are a number of reasons why We are permitted to retain your Personal Data even if you make a deletion request. Generally these reasons are in order to defend a legal right or respond to a legal claim. However, applicable law also permits retention for Our own internal business needs. If We decline to delete data after you have requested deletion, We will respond to you with Our reasons, and explain how your Personal Information will still be protected so long as We retain it.
Access or Changing Your Personal Information: We welcome your willingness to update your information with us. You may review or ask Us to update your Personal Information by contacting Us in accordance with the "Contacting Us" section below. Further, you may ask for a copy of the Personal Information We have collected about you for the last 12 months. In your request, please make clear what information you would like to have changed. Additionally, We may need to ask for additional information in order to ensure that the Personal Information you are accessing actually relates to you and not some other person. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable. We are not responsible for changing information in the databases of affiliates, promotional partners and other third parties with whom We have already shared your Personal Information. Note that you may not request copies of your Personal Information more than twice a year.
We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you request deletion as described above, We will not be able to remove your Personal Information from the databases of Our affiliates, Promotional Partners and other third parties with which We have already shared your Personal Information (i.e., to which We have already provided your Personal Information as of the date that We implement your deletion request).
Appointment of an Agent. You have the right to appoint an agent to exercise all your rights under this Policy. However, appointment of an agent is a serious thing. As a consequence, We will require you to not only properly identify yourself and the information which relates to you, but We will require you to give Us sufficient Personal Information about your agent so that We may identify them as Well.
For California residents to exercise the right to know or the right to delete described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
The verifiable consumer request must: (1) Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative; and (2) Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if We cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with Us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
