WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
Account and Sales Information
We collect information from you when you register an account, order products, enter contests, or otherwise provide us with your information. The information we collect from you when you create an account, inquire about a product, respond to a marketing message or social media post, or make a purchase, includes your contact information (name, e-mail address, and telephone number) mailing and billing address, website username and password, payment information, purchase history, product sizing information and other information we request from you or you provide to us, including information used to facilitate the processing of your orders, warranty requests or images of your body which we use to gather measurements on appropriate product sizes, as described in “Body Measurement Information” below.
Website and Online Activity
Like many websites, we use tracking technologies to collect information when you access or use the website, as further described in the “Cookies” and Similar Technologies section below. The information collected through these technologies includes online identifiers such as IP address, device ID, and online activity, including browsing activity and app usage, referring websites, and links clicked.
BODY MEASUREMENT TECHNOLOGY
BAUER offers measuring tools that can help you find your product size. These tools are available through the Apple Store or Google Play as downloadable mobile applications or can be accessed through our website at www.bauer.com. They are also available through retailers that distribute our products, who may use the tools to help you find great fitting equipment. When you use our measurement tools online, they provide you with the option to either manually enter body measurements or to have a photograph or video taken of your clothed body that is processed automatically, by the measurement application and used to allow a computer program to determine your size and suggest products that best fit your body.
You control how and when the photographs and videos are taken. You agree that any photograph or video you provide shall not be pornographic, lewd or otherwise offensive to members of BAUER and we reserve the right to refuse access to our mobile services to any user who provides such photographs or videos. Our systems automatically delete photographs and videos related to measurements once they are processed and provided to you. Photographs and videos are protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
Children under the age of 13 in the U.S. or 16 in certain other jurisdictions that protect children’s data differently, are not permitted to use Bauer's online body measurement tools. Children may be fitted in a store if their parents consent.
Body measurements collected at a store will only be used for a limited purpose. When a sales associate uses body measurements at a store, he or she will only use those measurements to recommend products that fit your body, either by inputting those measurements into a computer program or by manually estimating an appropriate fit.
