This Policy is governed by the laws of the United States and by agreeing to this Policy you agree to the transfer of your information as required by law, court order, or as requested by government or law enforcement agencies.

What Information We Collect and How We Use It
We do not knowingly collect personal information on individuals under the age of 13 without parental consent.
We may also provide members the opportunity to receive news, promotions and other information via email from CVT and active partners. You will only receive these emails if you grant us or the merchant permission to communicate with you. You must also provide us or the merchant with at a minimum your name and email address to allow us to communicate a personalized message to you.
If you shop with us, you will need to provide your name, address, phone number(s), email address, billing information (including credit/debit card number and expiration date), and, if applicable, the names, addresses, and phone numbers of gift recipients to a third party credit card fulfillment service which will use this information to process and fulfill your order or as otherwise described in this Policy. We will not contact gift recipients using any of the information that you provide to us.
You may, now or in the future, have the option to provide other information to us, such as your date of birth, your favorite store, ordering preferences or favorites, allergen or other dietary information, or other information that you choose to provide. We may use this information, including information that personally identifies or reasonably could identify you (“personally identifiable information”), collected by or provided through the Sites to improve our services, products, and operations; customize content and experiences on our Sites; perform statistical, demographic, and marketing analyses; fulfill orders and other requests for products or services; contact you about our products, services, and events; provide you with information that you have requested or that we think may be of interest to you; or for other business operations and support.
In certain instances, we may use or disclose your personally identifiable information to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be causing injury to you, CVT, or others; detect, investigate, and prevent fraud and other unlawful activities; protect and defend ourselves, our property, our employees, our customers, and our users; conform to applicable law or comply with our legal requirements or legal process served on us or the Sites; or act under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of us, our affiliates, agents, or the users of the Sites or the public. In the event of a merger, consolidation, sale, or transfer of all or substantially all of our company or its assets, information collected by our Sites may be transferred to the purchaser or the new company. Under such circumstances we would, to the extent possible, require the acquiring party to follow the practices described in this Policy, as it may be amended from time to time. Nevertheless, we cannot promise that an acquiring company or the merged company will have the same privacy practices or treat your information in the same manner as described in this Policy.
We may use or disclose information that does not directly identify you, including but not limited to aggregate data about your use of the Sites or our services in any manner we deem appropriate or necessary.
When you interact with any of our social media accounts or pages, we may collect personally identifiable information that you provide or make available through that page or site. The social media site’s privacy policies will apply to the collection, storage, and sharing of information through the social media site. If you choose to link or login to your CVT account with or through a social networking service, CVT and that service may share certain information about you and your activities. With your consent, we also may share information about your activities, including what you view on the Sites, with that social network’s users.
When you download or access certain features of the Sites, such as our mobile application, we may collect information about your location. You can disable this process by changing the settings pertaining to our mobile application on your mobile device. We may use your location information to provide you with information on products and services that you request, including processing your orders and sending you information about your orders, and personalize content and experiences on our Sites, including providing you with recommendations, information, and offers about our products and services. We also may use your location information to optimize or improve our products, services, and operations, perform statistical, demographic, and marketing analyses, and detect, investigate, and prevent activities that may violate our policies or be illegal.
Our cookies do not track any personally identifiable information about you or provide us with any way to contact you, and the cookies do not extract any information from your computer.
We may use third-party analytical tools to help us better understand how you use our Sites. These analytical tools place cookies or other tracking technology on your computer or device to collect information about your activity related to, and usage of, the Sites. The information collected by these analytical tools tells us things like which search engine referred you to our Sites, how you navigated around our Sites, what you purchased, and other information related to the Sites activity and usage. This information helps us to better serve you with more personalized information and product offerings. If you use Google as your online search engine, technologies used by Google (currently known as Google Analytics) may collect information such as your IP address, time of visit, whether you are a return visitor, and any referring website. The Sites do not use Google Analytics to gather any personally identifiable information. The information generated by Google Analytics will be transmitted to and stored by Google and will be subject to Google’s privacy policies.
In the event a third-party provider of analytical tools will have access to your personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, phone number or precise location, we contractually require such third-party provider to limit its use of your personally identifiable information to perform services for us and to maintain all of the information it collects and analyzes for us securely and in confidence. Such third parties may not share your personal information with anyone else, or use it for any other purpose, except on an aggregate, non-identifiable basis.
We also may partner with third-party advertising companies who may utilize cookies or other tracking technologies, to collect information about you when you use the Sites. These cookies and other technologies may be used to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. These third parties may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based advertising or other targeted content. These partners do not have access to or use your name, address, email address, telephone number or other personally identifiable information from us. They may, however, use persistent identifiers to anonymously track your Internet usage across other websites in their networks beyond our Sites. Such third parties may, with sufficient data from other sources, be able to personally identify you, unknown to us. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible advertiser directly. To learn more about the use of this information, or to choose not to have this information used by some of our third-party advertising partners who participate in certain industry self-regulatory programs, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative by clicking http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp and/or the Digital Advertising Alliance by clicking http://www.aboutads.info/choices/#completed.
Your browser or device may include “Do Not Track” functionality. Because a “Do Not Track” protocol has not yet been finalized, CVT’s information collection and disclosure practices will continue to operate as described in this Policy, whether or not a Do Not Track signal is received.
