COLLECTING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
There may be times (such as when you purchase or order a product, subscribe to a service, register to receive catalogs, or to participate in contests, sweepstakes, or promotions, etc.) when we ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card information, birth date, gender, occupation, personal interests, etc. We may also maintain a record of your product purchases.
Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products or access certain services, offers, and content on our web site. In addition, we may need to contact you by phone, e-mail, or mail to address questions or issues specific to your situation, even if you have opted not to receive communications from us.
In general, you can visit many of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track the Internet Domain Address from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.

If you choose to access switchmodern.com from the European Union or other locations outside of the United States with laws governing data collection and use that perhaps differ from United States law, then you are transferring your personal information to the United States for storage and processing and, consequently, you consent to such subject to the laws that are applicable in the United States.

You may be asked to choose a user name and password. We do not recommend that you use your real name or the real name of another person when selecting a user name. Your user name may be available to the Internet's general public. To the extent that you create a public profile that may be available to others on our sites and services, you are solely responsible for its content and accuracy at all times.

ONLINE PURCHASES AND CUSTOMER SUPPORT
When you sign up to purchase from us, we will require that you provide us with the necessary billing information such as your real name, credit card information, street address, etc., so that we may provide the products to you. Issues related to customer service, billing questions, technical and computer support, etc. may also require you to provide us with some personal information so that we may resolve the issue properly.
OTHER USES OF YOUR INFORMATION
We use the personal information you provide for internal purposes, such as confirming and tracking your order, subscription, or registration, analyzing trends and statistics, informing you of our new products, services, and offers, and providing you with information from and about Switch Modern.
From time to time we may establish a business relationship with other persons or entities that we refer to as Select Partners. In such cases we may share and cross-reference information, including personal information about you that will enable the Select Partners to contact you regarding products and services that may be of interest to you.
We may also contract with companies or persons to provide certain services, including credit card processing, shipping, data management, promotional services, etc. We call them our Service Providers. We provide our Service Providers with the information they need to perform their services.
To serve you better, we may combine information you give us online, in our stores, or through our catalogs. We may also combine that information with publicly available information and information we receive from or cross-reference with our Select Partners and others. We may use that combined information to enhance and personalize your shopping experience with us, to communicate with you about our products and events that may be of interest to you, and for other promotional purposes.
Although unlikely, in certain instances we may disclose your personal information when we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be causing injury to you, to Switch Modern, or to others. We may also disclose your personal information when we believe the law requires it.
