Privacy Policy

Ethanallen.ca understands and respects your concerns about privacy and is committed to providing you with a safe online experience. The information below describes the type of information we collect, how it is used, and steps we take to protect your personally identifiable information. Periodically, we may update our Privacy policy and encourage you to check this section for any changes. This policy only applies to customers in Canada.

How does ethanallen.ca protect customer personal information?

We use a secure server that uses secure socket layer software to encrypt all your personal information before it is sent to us to prevent unauthorized access to your information. We further have a policy for employees to safeguard client information designed to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, or use in any way.

If you would like to withdraw your consent for the collection, use and/or disclosure of your personal information, access/correct any of your personal information we have in our possession, or if you have any inquiries or comments about this website privacy statement, please contact us at info@ethanallen.ca.

What personal information does ethanallen.ca collect and how is it used?

We collect only the client information that is needed to administer our business, provide superior service to our clients, and communicate information relating to our products and services that we believe to be of interest to our clients. If you contact one of our customer service representatives, we may ask you for information such as your name, address and email address so we can respond to your questions or concerns. With your consent, we may retain this information to personalize your experience with us and better assist you the next time you contact us.

This website collects personally identifiable information (such as name, address, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail address, credit card and purchase information, and possibly the identity of Ethan Allen Design Centers where you have shopped and of design consultants with whom you may have shopped) from visitors only when such information is voluntarily provided. That information is used to process your purchases and requests and to provide service. Information about your shopping cart choices, purchases, or requests for design assistance may be passed along to the closest Ethan Allen Design Center. Our retail network is made up of Design Centers run by independently owned and authorized Ethan Allen retailers and Design Centers owned and operated by us as well as by an affiliated Company. Credit card information also may be provided to credit card companies as is required to process transactions. Information supplied to us is added to our client database. We make portions of our web and phone order client list available to carefully chosen companies to communicate with you about our products, services and promotions. If you do not want your name made available this way, if you’ve moved, or if you would prefer not to receive catalogs or email from Ethan Allen. Please contact us at info@ethanallen.ca.

Information further may be stored and used to better understand our clients, their needs, ways to improve our products and services, and to contact clients with offers that may be of interest to them.

What other information does ethanallen.ca collect and how is it used?

We may automatically collect general anonymous information related to your use of our website, such as the date and time you visit the website and the pages you visit on the website. Our servers may also automatically collect information about the type of browser you use and the name of your Internet Service Provider. In addition, we may collect “cookie” information from your browser to identify your computer and provide us with a record of your visits to our website (collectively, the foregoing is referred to as “usage data”). The technology used to gather “cookie” information is provided by the Internet browser you use, and is stored on your computer. You may set your browser to disable or refuse to accept “cookies”, although doing so may affect your viewing of or access to certain portions of our website.

A “cookie” is a small amount of data sent to your browser from a website server that may be stored on your computer’s hard drive. When you visit our website, this site may store a “cookie” or similar file on your computer. This information may be used for general purposes such as providing you with more personalized service, storing your zip code, and even helping us track our website visits and traffic patterns.

Most Internet browsers allow users to exercise control over such files on their computers by blocking them, erasing them, or possibly notifying users when such a file is stored. We encourage you to refer to your Internet browser’s instructions to learn about those functions and options.

What is the privacy policy for children?

We understand that parents are interested in supervising their children’s online activities. To support that objective, we have designed this website so that it does not ask for or collect personally identifiable information (name, address, telephone for fax numbers or e-mail addresses) from children (individuals under the age of 13) online and use that information for marketing purposes. If we discover that a child under the age of 13 submitted information to us, we will not use it for any purpose and will delete the information from our database.

How may I stop the use of my personal information?

We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. If you prefer not to receive information please let us know by sending an email to info@ethanallen.ca. Please be sure to provide your email address, mailing address, file name and specifically the information you do not want to receive. Please note that certain services and communications cannot be provided without certain personal information. Additionally, any requests to opt-out, unsubscribe or stop the use of personal information takes some time to be effective, particularly if we are removing your name from postal mailing.

Under what circumstances is personal information turned over to law enforcement agencies?

Your information may be processed and/or stored outside the province in which you reside and/or outside Canada, including the United States Local government agencies, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your personal information through the jurisdictions’ local laws.

Any stored information that becomes subject to a subpoena, court order, or other request by any local, Provincial, or federal agency will be provided to the requesting agency as deemed necessary by ethanallen.ca.
