Version August 14, 2006

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 !
When you come to Hanover Direct or when you register with Hanover Direct, we create your personal profile, assign a personal identification number, then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a ‘cookie,’ which is a very small bit of code. This code is uniquely yours. It enables us to know more about you, allows you to utilize some of our website’s functionality, and correspond with us about your personal profile without having to fill out registration forms with information you’ve already provided. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you’re at our site. We never save passwords or credit card information in cookies. The use of cookies is an industry standard — you’ll find them at most major Web sites. We use cookies to record session information, and to conduct marketing tests on our Web pages. By showing how and when you use the site, cookies help us see which areas and products are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our visitors’ needs.

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.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of the Hanover Direct website and its functionality and links will not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies. You can order your browser to accept all cookies or to alert you every time a cookie is offered. Then you can decide whether to accept one or not. If you want to control which cookies your computer accepts, just follow the instructions for your particular Internet browser system located at http://www.microsoft.com/term/privacy.htm.

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.

To change your Privacy Preferences at any of our catalog companies because, for example, you would prefer not to receive emails regarding special sales and exclusive offers, or want to change your e-mail address for e-mails regarding the status of your order, go to our catalog brand website, follow the “Privacy” link and the instructions you will find there. You will find it in the same spot on our catalog websites as here in this Privacy Policy.

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.

Hanover Direct does not participate in cooperative database services for any information you may give to us on the Hanover Direct website. Our catalog companies do. If you prefer that any one of our catalog companies do not include you in lists of information they share with others, go to our catalog brand website and follow the link to their “Privacy” Policy and the instructions to opt-out of such use which you will find in the same spot on that website as here in this Privacy Policy.

Opt-Out of Future Catalogs.
If you have requested a catalog from any of our catalog companies, or have purchased from them at any time, they will send you one of their catalogs. If for any reason you no longer wish to receive such catalogs from them by postal mail, go to that catalog website and follow the link to their Privacy Policy and the instructions to opt-out of such use, which you will find in the same spot as this paragraph.

Correction of Your Personal Profile.
You can always edit or correct any personal information you give Hanover Direct or any one of our catalog companies by writing to us at: custserv@HanoverDirect.com

Access By Other Corporate Entities
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.

It is possible that Hanover Direct, Inc. or its affiliated companies, or any combination, could merge with or be acquired by another business entity. Should such a combination occur, you should expect that Hanover Direct would share some or all of your information with the acquiring entity. You will receive notice of such event (to the extent it occurs) as provided in the paragraph below entitled ‘Notice’, and we will require that the new combined entity follow the practices disclosed in this Privacy Policy with respect to your personal information.

Problems
If at any time you have a question or dispute concerning your visit here, your order transaction, or our compliance with this privacy policy, you may contact us at custserv@HanoverDirect.com. Please provide your first and last name, order number, if any, and, if you have a question about our merchandise, item number(s), and we will get back to you promptly. If we are unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, you may elect to proceed to submit your complaint to an independent arbitrator to obtain an impartial assessment of your case, in writing. Any such arbitration will be deemed ‘conditionally binding’, meaning that the decision of the arbitrator will be binding upon Hanover Direct if you elect to accept the decision, and it will be binding upon you as well. If your dispute concerns our compliance with this privacy policy, and if we are unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, you may elect to proceed with BBBOnLine’s Privacy Policy Review Service by completing the BBBOnline complaint form

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our customers and visitors is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Hanover Direct cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. We also have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at this website. Nothwithstanding the foregoing, due to the open nature of the internet, We do not guarantee the absence of theft, hacker activity, electronic or non-electronic tampering, or computer crime, and we hereby disclaim responsibility and liability for stolen information.

Disclaimer.
The Privacy Policy adopted by Hanover Direct and all statements contained on this site about privacy and how we deal with data supplied by visitors to this site are not intended to be a contractual obligation of any kind and any such obligation is hereby disclaimed.

Similarly this Privacy Policy is not intended to be ‘advertising’ or ‘advertising claims.’ Rather it is intended to set forth our policy, including our practices and intentions about how we conduct our business.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. All changes to this policy which we deem material and which affect your personal identifiable information, are effective after we provide you with at least thirty (30) days’ notice of the changes by posting the changes here in Terms & Conditions for Use of Site and sending an e-mail to users who have provided us their e-mail address for this purpose.

Our e-mails will always remind you that you have the opportunity to inform us of your preferences, and will alert you how to inform us of your preferences by such e-mails and through this Privacy Policy. If we make any changes which have no effect upon the collection of your personal information (i.e., revisions to our access and access of third parties to your activities here on an anonymous basis only), then you will not receive an e-mail notification of the change. Such changes will become effective five (5) days after we post the revision to our Privacy Policy on this site.
