Usage Information.

In addition to the personal information described above, we also collect data generated by your usage of the site (“usage data”) that may or may not be associated with an individual’s identity. To the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy. Similarly, under some local laws, certain usage data, such as IP addresses, are considered personal information. To the extent such local laws apply, we also treat the required usage data as personal information. Otherwise, usage data is not treated as personal information.

Most usage data is collected using cookies or pixel tags (also called single pixel gifs or web beacons). A "cookie" is a small data file sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer. We use cookies to let us know that you are a prior customer or user, and to provide certain features to you. In addition, third parties may set cookies and tags through our services. We do not control such third parties or their privacy practices. Most web browsers allow you to instruct the browser to prevent the use of cookies, although doing so means you may not fully experience our site or may cause errors. The kind of information we collect includes: the pages visited on our site; the features used; how long a visitor stays; and the domain name of the site from which visitors connect to our site and the site to which visitors connect through our service.

Disclosure to certain third parties.

TOM FORD may share information we collect with our third party partners and service providers so that they can assist use in providing our products and services to you. If we do so, we will request that they treat this information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

TOM FORD may disclose any information we have about you (including personal information) if (i) we determine that such disclosure is necessary in connection with any investigation or complaint regarding your use of the Website, or (ii) to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) TOM FORD’s rights or property, or the rights or property of visitors to or users of the Website.

We may also disclose information collected on this site, including personal information, to third parties as required or permitted by law or when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity. For example, we may disclose information: to regulators, to law enforcement authorities who request it, to vendors who provide us with service, or to companies that may acquire part or all of TOM FORD.

We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal information you have provided to us in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.


Uses and disclosures not in TOM FORD's control

 

Third party links

. We and other users of the website may provide links to unrelated third-party websites as well as links to websites owned and operated by entities with which we have contractual relationships. Such third party services accessible via our website (through hyperlinks or otherwise) have their own privacy policies and data collection, use and disclosure practices. Please consult each site's terms & conditions and privacy policy prior to use. When you click on a hyperlink, a new browser window or frame containing a third party’s web site may appear in the foreground with the site remaining in the background. Any time that you move away from the TOM FORD website, including to a new window or frame, neither this Privacy Policy nor our other terms, such as our terms of use, will apply. TOM FORD cannot be and is not responsible for the protection of the information you provide to other websites. You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personal information on other websites, such information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited communications.

 

Advertisements on other sites.

Advertisements for our products and services may appear on third party websites around the Internet. Some websites and services deliver these advertisements based upon data that has been previously collected about your past behavior online. For example, if you have viewed websites about shoes, these websites or services may display to you an advertisement for our shoes. This kind of targeted advertising is sometimes called interest-based or online behavioral advertising. It is generally not based upon your personal information, but rather, upon your online activities. We do not control such third party websites or services on which these advertisements appear. Further, we do not control how they collect and use data about your online activities. However, you may opt-out of being tracked online by certain companies by visiting http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. If you opt-out, you will still receive advertisements, but they will not be delivered to you based upon your behavioral data possessed by the companies from whom you have opted-out. This process relies upon an opt-out cookie, so if you delete your cookies or use a different computer, you will have to repeat this process.
