Where you go and what you do — What we know without you telling us !
Data about your activity while here on this site is automatically provided to Hanover Direct when you sign on. For each visitor, our Web server automatically recognizes only your domain name, but not your e-mail address. We collect only the domain name, but not the e-mail address of visitors to our Web pages; we collect aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit, how many visits we get, and information such as where visitors arrived from as far as other sites on the Internet or if they directly typed our website address into their browser. It is used by us for internal review in aggregate and non-personally-identifiable form.
Cookies — How we know what we know without you telling us !
A ‘cookie’ is very small text file placed on your hard drive by a Web Page server. It serves as your personal identification card, and cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. It is uniquely yours and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. The purpose of a ‘cookie’ is to tell the server that you returned to that Web page. Of course, if you never register or leave personal information with Hanover Direct, then the server only knows that someone with your cookie has returned to the Web site. You are in charge of deciding whether we know anything about you. But the more you tell us about yourself, the more we can help you find information or products you want.
Your E-mail address — Do We Know It ?
Your E-mail address and other personally identifying data about you is known to Hanover Direct only when you voluntarily submit it to us. We collect your e-mail address only if you post a message to us, if you complete an online employment application, if you communicate with us via e-mail, if you ask us to communicate with you by e-mail or if you sign-up for our emails.
Your E-mail address — What Do We Do With It ?
If you complete an order from one of our websites, and give them your e-mail address, we will use your e-mail address not only to communicate with you about the status of your order but also to send you e-mails regarding special sales, exclusive offers, and other valuable promotions that we think will interest you. If you complete an online employment application, we will use your email address only to communicate with you with respect to that limited purpose.
If you enter one of our promotions, Tel.e.Friend about one of our products, or sign up for one of our Newsletters and give us your e-mail address, we will use your e-mail address not only for the purpose it was submitted, but also to send you e-mails regarding our own special sales, exclusive offers, and other valuable promotions that we think will interest you.
Personal Information Other Than Your E-mail Address.
Your California Privacy Rights Hanover Direct has a policy of not disclosing the personal information of our customers to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes if our customers have exercised their option to prevent that information from being disclosed to third parties for such purposes.
The following paragraphs explain what we do with your personal information and how you can prevent it. When you are on the website of any of our catalog companies, you will find a link right at this spot allowing you to “click here to change your privacy preferences.”
Our catalog companies will use your shipping and payment address to send you their print catalog and catalogs of their participating third-party merchants and affiliated companies which they feel will be of interest to you, all by postal mail. We will use your shipping address to send you materials that are publicly available, at your special request, all by postal mail.
Our catalog companies will share your name, address and purchase information (but not your credit card information) directlywith select merchants who are marketing affiliates of theirs. They use this information to match against their own offline catalog information (available from our records and other sources, such as demographic information and past purchase history) and they allow their marketing affiliates to use this information to match against their own offline information (available from their records and other sources, such as demographic information and past purchase history). This sharing of information allows us and other interested parties to make future marketing efforts more efficient. It may be used by our select marketing affiliates to send you offers of interest, by regular postal mail.
Like many other online merchants, our catalog companies, participate in cooperative database services which assist them in the matching of offline and online purchasing behavior so that participants can better analyze and understand the differences and tendencies of print catalog purchasers and website visitors and we can maximize the benefit of postal mail and e-mail they send to you if you have signed up with them to receive postal mail or e-mail. It may be used by other cooperative database participants to send you offers of interest, by postal mail or e-mail.
Lastly, we and our catalog companies do not currently rent e-mail addresses to outside parties.

We share much of our data, including personally identifiable information about you, with our subsidiaries and affiliated catalog and e-commerce companies. To the extent that you are not already a customer of such entity, they will do nothing with the information and will treat it at least as protectively as we treat the information we have about you. If you are already a customer of such entity, they may use this information to serve your needs better with respect to their merchandising, promotion, and marketing. If you prefer that our catalog companies do not include you in lists of information they share with one of our affiliated marketing companies which they may use for promotion or marketing, follow the link to “Privacy” on our catalog website and follow the instructions to opt out of such uses, which you will find in the same spot as this paragraph.
