For visitors to www.michaelkors.com: This website is operated by The Neiman Marcus Group, Inc., pursuant to an agreement with us. To learn how The Neiman Marcus Group handles the information it receives from and about you while you are on that website, please click here.
We may share your personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, as further described in our Information Disclosure and Your Choices/Your Privacy Rights sections below. If you wish to opt out of such sharing, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and include your name, email address and postal address in such request. Information Collection
We collect personal information from you when you: (1) purchase products from us, whether online, through a catalog or in one of our stores; (2) register on or at a Site; (3) complete a survey; (4) participate in a sweepstakes or other promotion; (5) contact us; or (6) otherwise use the website or provide information to us. The information we collect may include your name, address, email address, telephone number, details on the items purchased, date of birth, payment information, and other information you may provide to us. We may combine the information we collect from and about you online with the information we collect from and about you offline. We may also combine your information with information we receive about you from other sources, such as address update services.
We treat this information as non-personal, unless required to do otherwise by applicable law.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
You are free to decline cookies, but by doing so, you may not be able to use certain features on our websites or take full advantage of all of our offerings. Check the 'Help' menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. By declining cookies, you may also block certain web beacons.
We and our service providers may use a third-party technology, called Flash, in connection with our websites. Flash provides a facility, referred to as Local Stored Objects ("LSO"), that allows a website to store certain information locally on an individual's computer; for example, Flash LSOs can be used to store information regarding an individual's computer. If you do not want Flash LSOs stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash LSOs by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions. The instructions may explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash LSOs (referred to as "information" on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash LSOs that are not delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time. Setting the Flash Player to restrict acceptance of Flash LSOs may impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our websites. We expect our service providers and technology suppliers to honor any decision by you to restrict or limit Flash LSOs, but we cannot guarantee that they will do so.
