Privacy Policy

Ewin’s Dry Goods respects the privacy of all our customers. We are committed to providing you with a gratifying experience and we have found that collecting Personal Information (defined below) through www.ewinsdrygoods.com (the "Site"), any affiliate sites and our stores, or Outposts, including but not limited to Ewin’s Dry Goods stores, (referred to in this Privacy Policy as the "Stores"), helps us better understand the products and services most beneficial to you. Our Privacy Policy describes the types of information we gather online and in our Stores and how we use this information. Please read this information carefully.

Use of Information Collected by Us

Ewin’s Dry Goods may collect two types of information about users: "Personal Information" (such as name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number and the items you purchase) and "Aggregate Information" (such as information about how many users log on to our Site on a daily basis or frequency of customer visits to our Stores).

We use customer information in an effort to improve your shopping experience and to communicate with you about our products, services and promotions. We may also use this information to make offers to you, to help us target specific products and services to you, and to help us develop and improve our Site and Stores and tailor our Sites and Stores to your interests.

Personal Information Collected Online by
 Ewinsdrygoods.com and at Our Stores

Personal Information is collected online by us or our service providers on our behalf when users voluntarily register with ewinsdrygoods.com to purchase items, receive electronic newsletters, use community and communication services, answer surveys and other promotional opportunities provided on ewinsdrygoods.com, when users make a purchase, and when users utilize the "Tell a Friend" feature. We also may maintain a record of your product interests and purchases online. We may receive personal usage and demographic information from our Stores and from third parties we may work with to aide us in our targeted sales effort.

In our company-owned Store(s), Personal Information may be collected from you in a number of ways, including the following:

                When you purchase products from our Stores, we may collect your name, address, email address, telephone number(s) and credit card information (with the expiration date). In addition, we collect trans action information related to your purchase (such as what you bought, the price you paid, the payment method you used and if the product was on sale).

                When you fill out a personalization order or instruct us to mail product to another location, we may collect your name, address, email address, telephone number and credit card information.

                When you fill out any in-store promotional surveys, we may gather certain Personal Information, such as your opinions on specific products and/or services, in addition to identifying information, such as your name, address, telephone number(s), email address(es), income and employment status.

Aggregate Information Collected Online by 
Ewinsdrygoods.com and at Our Company-owned Stores

Aggregate Information is non-personally identifiable/anonymous information about you, such as age, gender, types of products purchased, frequency of Store visits, Site pages you access most frequently or search terms you enter. Aggregate Information is used in a collective manner, and no single person can be identified by that compiled information. For example, the number of people who shopped at Ewinsdrygoods.com during a specific time period or the number of people who shopped at our Stores who are 25 years of age is Aggregate Information that does not personally identify a specific user. Both Ewinsdrygoods.com and our Stores may collect Aggregate Information.

For example, we may use utilize web beacons (also called pixel tags or clear GIFs) and cookies, which are defined below and provided on our Site. The type of information we collect includes products viewed and/or purchased, your location (state/zip code if you placed an order) and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web. The computers, which deliver the Web pages to you, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from our Site, our servers log your IP address.

Ewinsdrygoods.com controls how that data may and may not be used.

Use of Cookies

Ewinsdrygoods.com uses cookies to; preserve the contents of your shopping bag between your visits. Ewinsdrygoods.com also uses cookies to measure activity on our Site, which allows us to determine which areas and features of our Site are most popular.

Use of Pixel Tags/Clear GIFs/Web Beacons

A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of our Site but not on your computer. When you access these pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of that visit. They usually work in conjunction with cookies, registering when a particular computer visits a particular page. If you turn off cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous website visit.

Notice to P3P Users

The Platform for Privacy Preferences Project ("P3P") is a standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium ("W3C") that provides an automated, machine-readable mechanism for understanding the use of your Personal Information by the Web sites you visit. P3P uses a standardized set of multiple choice questions covering the major elements of a Web site's privacy policy to provide a cross-section of how the particular Web site handles the personally identifiable information of its users. P3P-enabled browsers can automatically read this set of preferences made available by P3P-enabled Web sites and compare this information to the user's own set of privacy preferences. For example, Internet Explorer 6.0 requires third parties to set cookies to deliver P3P "compact" cookie policies with their cookies, and other browsers may use this mechanism soon. To enhance your online experience further, our new Site may be P3P enabled. For more information on the W3C and P3P, please visit http://www.w3.org/P3P/. Given certain limitations in the parameters chosen by W3C, however, the P3P mechanisms may not describe Ewinsdrygoods.com's privacy practices as accurately as this Privacy Policy. Accordingly, where discrepancies exist between this Privacy Policy and the P3P "compact" policies, this Privacy Policy shall control.

Protecting your order information is a priority for us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your online order information. To check the security of your connection, look at the lower right-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), then SSL is active and the server is secure. You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the Site address will change from "http" to "https." Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you won't be able to connect to the server and therefore won't be able to place an order through a secure connection. If you cannot access the secure server for any reason, please print our shopping page and place your order by phone at 615-656-5744
