WHAT INFORMATION DOES NEW BALANCE COLLECT ABOUT ME?
Non-Individually Identifiable Data:
As is the case with most online services, every time you visit, access and/or use our Service, we automatically collect certain data and information from you and/or your computer that is not personally identifiable (“Non-Identifiable Information”). Examples of this type of information may include:
- The type of Internet browser you are using
- The type of computer operating system and device you are using to access the Service
- The domain name of your Internet service provider
- The Web page from which you came
- The pages and features you visit and access on our Service
- IP Addresses and MAC Addresses.
When you visit, access and/or use our Service, we may track your visit and, as described below in the section concerning "cookies", collect certain data regarding your use of the Service and your activity on the Service, but we will not collect any Personal Information from you unless you choose to provide it to us or agree that it may be collected.
New Balance may collect your geolocation data through the Services for purposes of offering relevant content and services. Geolocation data consists of general location information based on latitude and longitude (if you have enabled location services for a New Balance application on your mobile device), or New Balance may approximate your location based on the IP address of your computer or mobile device.
In general, you can use our Service without providing us with any personally identifiable information, such as your name, email address, postal address, phone number, gender, credit card information or other information necessary to process your order (all such personally identifiable information, collectively, "Personal Information"). However, in order to place an order or use certain services and features made available through our Service, you will be required to provide certain Personal Information.
When you make a purchase from New Balance and/or request to sign up for email, direct mail or SMS Text notices, we collect Personal Information that you elect to provide to us. Your submission of this Personal Information is entirely voluntary; however, if you elect not to provide this Personal Information, some of the services and/or features available on and/or through the Service may not be available for your use.
We also collect Personal Information when you register for "My Account", participate in a contest, event or sweepstakes promotion, provide feedback, submit a product review, fill out a survey, participate in a study or contact us (for example via email). We may also obtain data through your Internet browser, such as your IP Address, which is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet.
If you elect to register for "My Account", you will have the option to store your credit card information with our Service. This feature, which is entirely optional, is provided as a convenience for you so that you will not need to re-enter your full credit card information each time you make a purchase through the Service. If you elect to take advantage of this feature, please be aware that, as a security precaution, we will not store your CCV number. You will be required to input this information prior to placing an order. If you elect to store your credit card number in the "My Account" feature, you will have the ability to change your mind and remove your credit card number from storage at any time by logging into "My Account" and making the appropriate change.
HOW DO YOU USE THE DATA THAT IS COLLECTED FROM OR ABOUT ME
The Personal Information we receive allows us to enable your use of our Service, process your order, create an account for you through the “My Account” service and update the information in the “My Account” service, personalize our product offering and improve your experience with our Service, making it more convenient, efficient and enjoyable. We may use the non individually identifiable data information and Personal Information that you submit to us or that is otherwise collected from you through the Service to:
- Customize your communications and shopping experience.
- Process your purchase, confirm your orders and communicate to you about account information or customer service needs.
- Provide you with a direct mailing, including print catalog, via postal mail.
- Adapt the content and layout of our Websites and Apps tailored to your needs and so you do not have to enter information more than once.
- Notify you about new products and services, special offerings and other promotions.
- Coordinate contests, promotions, surveys, studies or other features of our Service, including but not limited to communicating with you regarding your participation in the foregoing.
Improve our business to better respond to your needs.
HOW DO YOU SHARE MY INFORMATION?
Third Party Service Providers:
For the purpose of operating our business, we may transfer your Personal Information to our third party service providers who use that information only to conduct New Balance business. For example, these third party service providers may handle New Balance credit card processing, shipping, data management, email distribution, information analysis, promotions and study management and other services for New Balance.

We may use your (i) Non-Identifiable Information and/or (ii) Personal Information that is aggregated and no longer personally identifiable for any business purposes, including, without limitation, product development, research, business improvement, reporting and marketing. We may also disclose Non-Identifiable Information and aggregated information to various third parties who may use such information for their own purposes.
We may disclose Personal Information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, when required by law, to enforce our website policies, or to protect our or others' rights, property or safety. We may also share Personal Information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation.

WHAT ABOUT INFORMATION THAT I POST TO BLOGS AND OTHER PUBLIC AREAS OF THE SERVICE?
HOW DO I KNOW MY PERSONAL INFORMATION IS SECURE?
We have a variety of security measures to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your Personal Information that we have collected from you from the Service. To ensure the information you provide online is secure during transmission, we use encryption technology and Secure Socket Layers (SSL) while processing any Personal Information you supply.
Our Service provides you the ability to store your credit card number in the "My Account" section of our Service. To protect your security, we encrypt all stored credit card numbers and we do not store your card's CCV number. For others, we may temporarily store the entire encrypted credit card number when it is necessary to manually contact a credit card company for verification.

While New Balance's policy prohibits children under 13 from registering with the Service, parents should supervise their children's online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address and other Personal Information without parental permission.
