b. Information Collected Automatically

We use various tools and technologies like cookies and web server logs to collect information automatically on the Site. This information may include IP addresses, device identifiers, browser characteristics, operating system details, internet service provider details, language preferences, referring URLs, time and length of visits, and pages viewed.


These tools also may include GPS (global positioning systems) software, geo-filtering, and other location-aware technologies to locate you, sometimes precisely, for purposes such as verifying your location and delivering or restricting content based on your location. Our “find a store” feature may access and use information about your device location to suggest appropriate store locations, and our Site may be personalized based on various information we have about you to provide you with more location-relevant content.


“Cookies” are small data files stored by your web browser on your computer. Cookies may allow a website to recognize a user’s device, record user preferences, track the pages a user clicks on while visiting the website, and identify the website visited immediately beforehand. Most web browsers accept cookies by default, but you may be able to adjust your browser settings to remove or reject cookies. Please note that blocking cookies may affect the availability and functionality of this Site and other websites. Also, disabling cookies may invalidate opt outs that use cookies to recognize devices that have opted out.


We may combine certain automatically collected information with other information we obtain about you, which may include data we obtain from third parties. 


Please note that we or third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different devices and online properties when you use the Site.


Your web browser may have settings that allow you to transmit a “Do Not Track” signal when you visit various websites or use online services. Like many websites, the Site is not designed to respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from browsers. To learn more about “Do Not Track” signals, visit www.allaboutdnt.com


c. Information Collected By Other Parties

Our service providers may share with us your personal information that you submit to them. For example, if you apply for a job using the career portal, apply for a credit card, pay for a purchase using PayPal, or return a purchase, you may submit personal information to one or more of our service providers that may share your information with us. We may combine information that we have about you with information we obtain from other parties. When you submit information to another party, you are subject to that third party’s terms of use and privacy policies, for which we are not responsible.

In the event of a business transaction, such as if we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (e.g., further to a merger, reorganization, liquidation, or any other business transaction, including negotiations of such transactions), we reserve the right to disclose any information we obtain through the Site.


In addition, we may disclose your personal information if we are required to do so by law or we believe that such action is necessary to:


  • Comply with legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order
  • Protect the company's rights and property
  • Investigate reports of fraud or of users sending material using a false email address or users sending harassing, threatening, or abusive messages
  • Protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Site
  • Respond to emergencies, such as when we believe someone's physical safety is at risk.


Analytics & Advertising

Our vendors, including Google, Facebook, and Adobe, may use cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies to collect or receive information about your internet usage, including your use of this Site, and use that information to provide website statistics and to target ads. We and our vendors may use first-party cookies or other first-party identifiers as well as third-party cookies or other third-party identifiers to deliver advertisements, create a profile of you, measure your interests, detect your demographics, detect your location, and personalize content.


We may use certain web analytics services, including Google Analytics and Facebook Analytics, to help us understand and analyze how visitors use the Site and to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. We’ve implemented Google Analytics Advertising Features such as remarketing with analytics, interest-based advertising, demographics and interests reporting, user segment analysis, and impression reporting. For more information on how Google Analytics uses data collected through the Site, visit policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites. You may also be able to opt out of Google Analytics by visiting tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.


You may be able to opt out of certain interest-based advertising using the settings on your browser or mobile device. In addition, the following services or organizations offer tools that you can use to limit or opt out of interest-based advertising:


  • To learn more about opting out of data collection by Adobe Analytics go to www.adobe.com/privacy/opt-out.html.
  • To learn more about Criteo’s privacy practices, including how to disable Criteo’s services, you may visit www.criteo.com/privacy.
  • To change your privacy and advertising settings with Facebook, login to your Facebook account and navigate to your account settings.
  • To opt out of Google’s network of interest-based advertising, visit adssettings.google.com.
  • To opt out of interest-based advertising from companies that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance or Network Advertising Initiative opt-out programs, please visit youradchoices.com/control and optout.networkadvertising.org.


Your opt-out choice may apply only to the browser or device you are using when you opt out, so you should opt out on each of your browsers and devices if you want to disable interest-based advertising for those browsers and devices. If you opt out, you will still receive ads, but they may not be as relevant to you and your interests. Please note that we do not control how third parties manage their opt-out processes. 

Social Features

The Site may permit you to interact with social media platforms operated by unaffiliated parties, for example, to “like” Orvis or to share content from the Site on those platforms (“Social Features”). If you choose to “like” or share content or post information using Social Features, that information may be publicly displayed, and the party operating the other platform may receive certain information about you and your use of the Site. Similarly, if you interact with us through Social Features (e.g., if you “like” or “follow” our page on another platform), we may have access to information about you from that platform. Please note that if you mention or comment about Orvis or our Site in your post on another platform, that platform may allow us to publish your post on our Site. In addition, we may receive information about you if a user on a social media platform gives us access to their profile and you are one of their connections, or information about you is otherwise accessible through that other user. You should review the terms, policies, and settings of these other platforms to learn more about their data practices and/or adjust your settings.


Sweepstakes, Contests, and Similar Promotions

We may operate sweepstakes, contests, raffles, and similar promotions (each, a “Promotion”) jointly sponsored or offered by third parties that may require submitting personal information. If you choose to participate in a Promotion, your personal information may be disclosed to third parties as described in the terms applicable to that Promotion. Insofar as the terms applicable to a particular Promotion conflict with this Privacy Policy, the terms applicable to the Promotion shall control.
