Through your use of products or services provided by Gerber Childrenswear LLC ("Gerber Childrenswear," "we," "our," or "us"), or your accessing of our website, www.gerberchildrenswear.com (the "Site"), you expressly agree to accept the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

  3. Will my personal information be shared?

    Gerber Childrenswear does not sell or rent customer email addresses to third parties. However, we may occasionally provide your email address and other personal information to our Partners for marketing and research purposes. In addition, Amazon.com may collect your personal information in connection with the purchase of products and fulfillment of orders from the Site, as stated in its privacy policy, and we may provide your email address and other personal information to our Partners, agents, or other third parties in order to facilitate order fulfillment.

    We may engage third parties to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet and sometimes on the Site, or to collect and analyze information, such as how customers navigate the Site and which products they browse and purchase, so that we may make improvements to and enhance visitors use of the Site. They may collect anonymous information about your visits to the Site and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to our Site and other websites to target advertisements for goods and services to you. These targeted advertisements may appear on our site or on other sites that you visit. No personally identifiable information is collected in this process.

  4. What are cookies and how does Gerber Childrenswear use them?

    The Gerber Childrenswear Site uses a browser feature known as a cookie. A cookie is a small text file created by a website that is stored by your browser on your hard drive. Cookies generally come in two forms: session cookies and persistent cookies. We may use both session and persistent cookies on our Site. A session cookie (which expires at the end of your visit) may be used to gather basic information about your visit to our Site, such as the date and time of your visit, the length of your visit, and the pages/images you viewed during your visit. This information allows us to assess (in aggregate form) how our Site is being used and, in turn, improve its contents and functionality. A persistent cookie (which remains on your computer for a longer period of time) may be used to remember the content you previously viewed on our Site and/or certain personal information you provided when registering during an earlier visit to our Site (e.g., your name, email address, child’s name, child’s expected or actual date of birth, etc.). This allows us to (among other things) personally greet you by your name when you come back to our Site and to display content and information that is tailored to the progress of your pregnancy, child’s growth, or other interests. In addition, a session cookie will save you the time of having to re-register or re-enter information every time you come back to our Site or try to login to access member-only areas. We do not use cookies to collect personal information; however, as explained above, we may use cookies to store - in encrypted form - certain personal information you provided during an earlier visit to our Site.

    You have the choice to refuse cookies by turning them off in your Internet browser. However, if you choose not to accept cookies, you may not be able to purchase from the Site.

    We may also collect and store information in the form of web logs – i.e., files that record general activity on our Website and gather non-identifiable statistics about your browsing patterns on our Site. The information we collect and store in log files may include (among other things): (i) the type of browser and operating system you use; (ii) your computer’s IP Address; and, (iii) other information about your online visit (e.g., URL you came from to get to our Site, date and time of your visit, and which pages you viewed and for how long). Some of this information may be captured by log files in conjunction with the use of cookies. In addition to using log file information to better understand how our Site is used and to improve its functionality, we may use certain log file information (such as your computer’s IP address) together with personal information (if necessary) to troubleshoot technical problems, help ensure the security of our Website, or prohibit or restrict certain users from accessing our Site.

    We may also use web beacons (or clear GIFs) on our Website or include them in an email message we send you. Web beacons (also known as "web bugs") are small strings of code that provide a method of delivering a graphic image on a web page or in an email message for the purpose of transferring data back to us. The information collected via web beacons may include some of the information described in the Log Files section above, as well as information about how a user responds to an email campaign from Gerber (e.g., the time the email is opened, where does the user link to from the email, etc.). We use web beacon information for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to, site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising and email auditing and reporting, and personalization.

  5. How do I review or update my information?

    If you have a registered customer account with Amazon.com, you may access your information via the "Your Account" tab on the Site, or via Amazon.com. You may make changes to your personal information, email preferences, or mailing preferences there.

    You make changes to your information in Gerber Childrenswear’s Real Mom program, or request removal from the Real Moms program, by calling 1-800-461-7842.

  6. How do I opt out or remove my information?

    If you prefer not to receive marketing emails and/or mailings from Gerber Childrenswear, and you are a registered user online, you may “opt out” by calling 1-800-461-7842. If you only wish to unsubscribe from emails, click on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email. You may also contact customer service by calling 1-800-461-7842.

    We maintain a "Do Not Mail" file to ensure we honor your “opt out” requests. Please note that, since mailings are planned in advance, it may take up to eight weeks for your mailing "opt out" to become effective. If you make purchases from our website, you will still receive order and shipping confirmation emails. In addition customer service may need to contact you by phone, email, or mail with questions related to your order.

  7. What steps does Gerber Childrenswear take to keep my information secure?

    The security of your personal information is very important to us. We have implemented measures to ensure your information is processed confidentially, accurately, and securely. Our website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt your order information, such as your name, address, and credit card number, during data transmission. Once you begin the checkout process you will be in secure mode and should see either a solid key icon or a locked padlock icon at the bottom of your Internet browser window. In addition, the beginning of the Gerber Childrenswear URL address at the top of your browser should change from "http" to "https" – the "s" standing for secure.

    We restrict access to personal information collected about you at our web site to our employees, our Partners' employees, or others who need to know that information to provide services to you or in the course of conducting our normal business operations. While no web site can guarantee security, we maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information collected via the web site. We protect our databases with various physical, technical and procedural measures and we restrict access to your information by unauthorized persons. We also advise all Gerber Childrenswear employees about their responsibility to protect customer data and we provide them with appropriate guidelines for adhering to our company's business ethics standards and confidentiality policies.

  8. Does Gerber Childrenswear protect children’s privacy?

    Because we are in the infants’ and childrens’ wear business, we are especially concerned about the safety and security of children. The Site is intended for use by individuals 18 years of age and older. We will not knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that an individual is under the age of 13, and has submitted any information to Gerber Childrenswear for any purpose without prior verifiable parental consent, we will delete his or her information from our files.

  9. What if changes are made to this policy?

    We reserve the right to make changes to this Policy at any time, including in response to changes in applicable law. If we do make changes, the changes will be posted on this page and we will indicate at the top of this Policy when the changes went into effect. Your continued use of the Site or receipt of benefits from the Site after any such notices will signify your agreement with these changes. We encourage you to come back to our Site and review this Privacy Policy frequently so that you are constantly aware of our most current privacy practices.
