In some instances, we may also collect information that you provide about others, such as when you purchase an e-gift card for someone that we deliver electronically or purchase and ship products to someone else. We will use this information to fulfill your requests and will not send marketing communications to your contacts unless they choose to receive such communications from us.

We collect this Personal Information when you engage in activities such as visiting our Site, placing an order online, contacting us with a question or concern, communicating with us through live chat, providing product reviews, creating an online account, signing up to receive emails, requesting a catalog, communicating with us through social media sites, requesting customer support, applying for a job, or otherwise communicating with us. If you choose to place a Phone Order, we may collect the sound of your voice and what you say during that conversation.

How does Title Nine use and share my personal information?


How We Use Your Information:

Broadly speaking, we use your Personal Information for the purposes for which you provided it, or, in the case of Catalogs, to inform you of our product offerings. If you order a product on the Site or through a Phone Order, or otherwise participate in product reviews, events, contests, or sweepstakes we offer from time to time, we will use your name and contact information to fulfill your needs, including billing and delivery. If you send us an email, we may use your email address and other information you submit to provide customer service to you. If you use the Chat function on our Site, we will use the information you provide to render the service you are requesting.

We may also use your Personal Information or Log Data to administer our internal business activities, such as to design and arrange the Site in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve the Site to better meet the needs of our customers and prospective customers, to better understand visitors to the Site, to manage your account, to provide customer service, to make available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers, and to prevent and address fraud, breach of policies or terms, and threats of harm.

In addition, we may use third-party services, such as Google Analytics, that collect, monitor, and service providers and these service providers may use this information for purposes such as evaluating your use of the Site, compiling statistics reports, and providing other services relating to Site activity and other internet usage.


Sharing Personal Information With Service Providers:

We, like many businesses, sometimes engage other companies to perform certain business-related functions. These companies may include marketing agencies, database service providers, backup and disaster recovery service providers, email service providers, payment processors, and others. When we engage another company to perform such functions, we may provide it with Personal Information, Log Data, or aggregate information about our customers, sales, website traffic patterns, and related website information, in connection with its performance of such functions. In addition, we occasionally make names, emails and mailing addresses available to companies whose products we think may interest you, unless you have told us not to, which you may do so if you do not wish to receive such offers, or a Catalog by clicking here.

We may engage and work with service providers and other third parties to serve advertisements on the Site or on third-party services. Some of these advertisements may be tailored to your interest based on your use of the Site and elsewhere on the internet, sometimes referred to as "interest-based advertising" and "online behavioral advertising," which may include sending you an ad on a third-party service after you have left the Site (i.e., "retargeting").

We take measures to select service providers that are responsible and afford privacy protections to their customers, such as those that comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. However, we cannot make any representations about the practices and policies of these third-party companies. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with and consult the privacy practices of these service providers.

We may also use your Personal Information to engage in internet-based advertising, which you can opt out of by going to http://optout.aboutads.info/, or if specifically on Facebook or Instagram by going to https://www.facebook.com/about/basics/advertising/ad-preferences.


Sharing Data Through Social Media:

We work with social media sites like Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter and with application developers who specialize in social commerce so you can connect to us, share your interests, express opinions about products and services, purchase our products, and generate interest in our products and services among members of your social networks. You may also provide User Generated Content ("UGC") in certain areas of our Site. We encourage you to exercise caution when making decisions about what you disclose in such public areas.

If you use third-party social media features available on our Site, we or the third party may collect or share your data, including your Personal Information. We consider information collected from or shared through any such social media features, including User Generated Content ("UGC") to be public information, because the third-party social media sites, or you, make it publicly available. If you choose to submit UGC including Personal Information to any public area of the Site, your content will be accessible by anyone, including us. If you do not want us to be able to access information about you, including Personal Information, from third-party sites, you must limit data collection and disclosure in the privacy settings on the third-party sites.


Legally Compelled Disclosure of Personal Information:

We may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or in our good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • comply with a legal obligation, law enforcement or other legal process, and, where permitted, in response to a government request;
  • protect or defend our rights, interests, or property, or that of third parties;
  • prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Site, including if we believe your actions are inconsistent with our Terms and Conditions;
  • act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public; or
  • protect against legal liability.

Disclosure in Relation to a Business Transaction:

In addition, we may share your Personal Information and Log Data in connection with or during negotiations of any proposed or actual financing of our business, or merger, purchase, sale, joint venture, or any other type of acquisition or business combination of all or any portion of our assets, or transfer of all or a portion of our business to another company, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding. You agree that your Personal Information and this Privacy Notice will apply to any successor company of Title Nine in the event of a change of control.

You may also make a request to obtain all of the personal information that we have collected on you in the previous twelve months. To learn how to do so, click here.

If we can verify your identity, we will delete your information and instruct our service providers who also have your information to delete it as well.

Protection of Personal Information


We are committed to the protection of your information. When you place an order through the Site, we encode your information using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption to protect your information as it travels over the internet. We also hold a secure key, or digital certificate, through Digital Signature Trust. This key ensures that we are who we say we are, and that any data exchanged online is protected from theft and tampering. Consumer protection laws protect you against any unauthorized use of your credit card. If you suspect any illegal use of your card, call your issuing bank immediately to make sure your rights are protected.

We may store Personal Information itself or such information may be stored by third parties to whom we have transferred it in accordance with this Privacy Notice. We do not collect or store credit card information or internet protocol addresses directly; rather, we employ a third-party payment processor who may collect, store, and use such information. We take what we believe to be reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information collected via the Site from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, inadvertent disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, no network, server, database, or Internet or e-mail transmission, is ever fully secure or error free. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us electronically. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Information.
