Information We Collect

The information we collect generally falls into two categories: (1) personal information you provide voluntarily, such as when you provide us with your information to place an order or when you request or register to receive samples and other informational materials from us; and (2) tracking information we may collect as you navigate through the Website.

Please see the section below captioned “How You May Opt Out of Our Information Uses” regarding your right to ask us not to use your information for certain purposes.

Tracking Information/Cookies

When you visit our Website, we may collect tracking information such as your browser type, the type of operating system you use, which pages you visited on our Website, and which search terms you entered. We use cookies, Web beacons, and other technologies for analysis and personalized services.

A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your computer by our Website’s server. We use cookies to collect tracking information and to remember information you have given us. This is done so that you don’t have to reenter the information each time you visit our Website. Most web browsers can be set to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you and provide you with an opportunity to refuse that cookie or to remove it later. Please note that if you remove or chose not to accept our cookies, you will need to reenter your information and reselect your preferences each time you visit our Website.

How Your Information Will Be Used

We will use the information we collect from and about you for various purposes, including responding to your requests, providing you with additional information about Carlisle, improving our Website, customizing your experience on our Website, and monitoring postings on any bulletin board, blog, or chat areas we may make available to you. Our primary goal is to provide you with a customized experience and all information necessary for you to gain a full understanding of Carlisle and the services we offer.

How Your Information Will Be Shared

We value your privacy and will not sell your personal information to third parties. However, we may share your information with third parties under limited circumstances, such as:

A. Service Providers. We may share your information with third-party service providers who help us operate and maintain our Website or deliver our services (such as conducting telephone surveys for marketing purposes). Any third-party service provider with whom we share your information will be contractually restricted from using or disclosing your personal information for any purpose other than as necessary to provide the services for which the information was disclosed.

B. For Legal Purposes. We will release information when we believe we are legally required to do so, such as in response to a court order or subpoena. We may also be required to release information if we are purchasing or selling a business, although in such cases your information would normally be covered by a non-disclosure agreement.

C. Aggregate Information. We may disclose to third parties non-personally-identifiable aggregate statistics, such as overall patterns or demographic reports, regarding user behavior as a measure of interest in, and use of, our Website and marketing materials. Aggregate disclosures will not describe or identify any individual user.

Our Website may offer its users the opportunity to share User Content (as that term is defined in our “Terms of Use”) – for instance, on blogs or message boards. If you choose to use these features, you should be aware that any personal information you submit through these features can be read, collected, or used by other viewers of these features and could be used to send you unsolicited messages.

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect. We maintain a secure process to collect, transmit, and store your personal information.

Please note that no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure, so we cannot guarantee that such information will never be accessed, used, or released in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

If we introduce password-protected features, we urge you to keep any online password we may provide you in a safe place and not to disclose it to anyone. Also remember to sign out and close your browser window when you have finished your visit, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place, such as a library or Internet cafe.

Secure Shopping

We make sure that your information is protected as you send it to us.

Our secure server software (SSL) is among the best technology available today. It encrypts (scrambles in code) all personal data you share with us, including your credit card and telephone numbers, name and address. Wideplankflooring.com is so confident in our systems that we ensure 100% safety in the transactions you make with us.*

In the rare event that unauthorized charges are made to your credit card during a transaction with us, you will not be held responsible in any way. Under federal law, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50 of fraudulent charges. If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50, Wideplankflooring.com will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50. Wideplankflooring.com will cover this liability only if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own, on purchases made at Wideplankflooring.com while using the secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, in order to qualify for the Wideplankflooring.com security guarantee, you must undertake any steps required by federal law and your credit card agreement, including any provision requiring you to notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures. If you have any questions regarding federal laws, contact your state’s attorney general or the United States Department of the Treasury
