Information Collection, Use, and Sharing.
The information we learn from you helps us personalize and continually improve your Furniture Mart USA shopping experience. Except as outlined herein, the submission and collection of personally identifiable information (defined below) is strictly voluntary. Furniture Mart USA only collects personal information you provide to us:
· When you sign up for emails;
· When you submit a request for assistance or product information;
· When you submit an order or make a purchase;
· When you contact us via phone;
· When you interact with us using our online chat feature;
· When you visit our Site.
We will never request your password, user name, or other personally identifiable information through e-mail. This practice, called “phishing,” is oftentimes a scam designed to steal your personal information. If you receive an e-mail message that looks like it is from us asking for your personal information, please do not respond.
We do not collect information from anyone that tells us they are under the age of 13. Children under the age of 13 should always ask their parents or guardians for permission before providing any contact information to anyone online. We urge parents and guardians to participate in their children’s online activities and use parental controls or other web filtering technology to supervise children’s access to the Internet. If such information is inadvertently collected, we will delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us.
Your Access to and Control Over Information.
You retain all rights to your personal information supplied to Furniture Mart USA and may modify or correct it. You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our Site:
· See what data we have about you, if any.
· Change/correct any data we have about you.
· Have us delete any data we have about you.
· Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
You may also contact Customer Service anytime to request the removal of your address or other information from our lists. Furniture Mart USA owns the rights to certain proprietary information, including the trademarks, copyrighted text and graphics on our Site, and to all research and data collected through the Site.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Furniture Mart USA holds credit card information submitted online for web cart purchases only long enough to authorize the purchase with our online payment processor and does not store this information.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. While no computer or facility is 100% safe from outside attacks, we believe that the steps we have taken to protect your personally identifiable information dramatically reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate for the type of data involved.
If you cannot access a secure server or have concerns about submitting information online, you may order by telephone at 1-844-565-4360 (toll free in the U.S.).

In order to deliver products and/or services to you, Furniture Mart USA may share information, including personally identifiable information, with third-party service partners.

Our third party service providers do not learn the name, telephone number, postal address, e-mail address, or any other personally identifiable information about you in connection with the above-mentioned retargeting process.
Furniture Mart USA does not sell data we collect to third parties. We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We require our third party service providers to have appropriate information security safeguards and to use any information provided only for a specifically authorized purpose.
