More Information On “First Party” Advertising

First-party advertising works this way: When you visit our Website, we may deliver a cookie to your browser. When you leave our Website and travel elsewhere on the Internet, we may use the cookie to recognize you as someone who has visited our Website, to assume that you are interested in our products, and to deliver an advertisement to you that promotes our products. Although we may work with a vendor to deliver and read our first-party cookies and to serve advertisements on our behalf, our vendors may not use these first-party cookies to recognize you as someone who may be interested in the goods/services of the vendors’ other clients.

You can opt out of first-party advertising by clicking here. When you do, we will deliver an “opt-out” cookie to your browser. When you visit our Website in the future, the opt-out cookie will tell us that you have opted out of Crocs’ cookies for first-party targeted advertisements.

Please note that the opt-out cookie will only prevent delivery of first-party advertising cookies. First-party cookies are different than third-party cookies. Third-party cookies track your online behaviors across nonaffiliated websites for the purpose of delivering targeted advertisements not only for Crocs but for a variety of other companies. To learn more about online behavioral advertising and the choices you have about the delivery of third-party cookies, read the next section.

Cookies Delivered by Third Parties

In addition to the cookies we deliver to your computer through our Website, certain third parties may deliver cookies to you for a variety of reasons. For example, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics tool that helps us understand how visitors engage with our Website. To learn more about Google Analytics, click here. We also participate in the Adobe Marketing Cloud Device Co-op to better understand how you use our Website and apps across the various devices you use, and to deliver tailored marketing and promotions. Click here to learn more about how Adobe does this. Other third parties may deliver cookies to your computer for the purpose of tracking your online behaviors across nonaffiliated websites and delivering targeted advertisements either on our Website or on other websites.

You have choices about the collection of information by third parties on our Website. For example, if you don’t want information about your visit to our Website sent to Google Analytics, you may download an Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here. Please note that the Add-on does not prevent information from being sent to Crocs.

In addition, if you would like to opt-out of having interest-based information collected by certain entities during your visits to our Website or other websites, please click here. You will be directed to an industry-developed website that contains mechanisms for choosing whether each listed entity may collect and use data for online behavioral advertising purposes. It may be that some of the third parties that collect interest-based information on our Website do not participate in the industry-developed opt-out website, in which case the best way to avoid third-party tracking of your online behaviors may be through your browser settings and deletion of cookies. Please note that the industry-developed opt-out mechanism described above is device specific. If you wish to opt-out from having interest-based information collected by participating entities across all devices, you need to visit the opt-out page from each device.

Our Use of Your Information

We use the information we collect through our Website for the following purposes:

As required to establish and fulfill a contract with you, for example if you make a purchase from us or request certain services. This includes verifying your identity, taking payments, communicating with you, providing customer services and arranging the delivery of our products;

As required by us to enable our business and pursue our legitimate interests, we use your data for the following purposes:

  • We will use your information to provide services you have requested, and respond to any comments or complaints you may send us;
  • We monitor use of our products and services, and may invite you to participate in surveys and use your information to help us monitor, improve and protect our products, content, services and websites;
  • We may monitor your use of our Website and services to better understand your needs and interests and tailor your experience on our Website and in our communications to you;

Compliance with applicable laws and protection of our legitimate business interests and legal rights, such as for security, credit and fraud prevention purposes, and for use in connection with legal claims, compliance, regulatory, investigative purposes.

In accordance with your preferences and where needed with your consent, we may send you direct marketing communications such as promotions, offers and newsletters in relation to our products and services. In each of these communications you will be given an opportunity to opt out by following the instructions in the communication.

More information on how we use personal data collected as part of a contest or promotion. When you enter a contest or other promotion, we may ask you for certain personal data to be used in relation to the promotion, such as to administer the contest, send you promotional emails, notify winners and make the winners’ list publicly available (pursuant to applicable law). In cases where the contest or promotional offer is co-branded with or sponsored by another party, we may share your information with that party. Entering such contests and providing the required personal data is your choice; you do not need to provide such information or enter such contests to browse or otherwise use our Website.

Your Choices

In General. We respect your right to make choices about the ways we collect, use, and disclose the information you provide on or through this Site. We strive to provide choices to you at a meaningful time and in a meaningful place. This Notice describes some of your other choices, such as your choice to opt out of receiving “cookies.”

Do Not Track Mechanisms. Your browser may deliver a “Do-Not-Track (‘DNT’) signal” to this Site. Because of the changing state of technology and indecision within the technology and marketing industries regarding the meaning of DNT signals, we currently do not make any guarantee that we will honor DNT signals.

Previously Expressed Preferences. You may be able to change previously expressed preferences regarding how we use information you provide on or through this Site. For example, if you have provided your contact information and receive periodic emails from us, you may decide to stop receiving those emails by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in an email’s footer. You may be able to change other preferences through an account you create on this Site. Otherwise, please contact us using the information provided above.

Steps We Take to Safeguard your Information

We maintain reasonable administrative, physical and technological measures to protect the confidentiality and security of information you submit on or through our Website in accordance with applicable legislation and regulations. For example, when collecting credit card information for online purchases, we offer secured-service transactions that encrypt your information in transit to thwart others from intercepting or misusing it.

Unfortunately, no website, server, or database is completely secure or “hacker proof.” We therefore cannot guarantee that your personal data will not be disclosed, misused or lost by accident or by the unauthorized acts of others. Further, we cannot control dissemination or use of personal data contained in User-Generated Content you post on or through our Website, and you should have no expectation of privacy in such information.

How Does Crocs Share the Information it Receives?

Crocs may share the personal data described in this Privacy Policy in the following ways:

Third–Party Service Providers. Crocs shares information collected through this Website with third-party service providers who act for or on its behalf. For example, we may use third-party vendors to design and operate our Website such as Adobe Target; to host our Website or parts thereof such as Akamai; to conduct surveys such as Iperceptions; and to help us with our promotional efforts such as Adobe Analytics. These third parties may need information about you to perform their functions. We have contracts in place with these third-party service providers to ensure protection of your personal data.

Other Users of This Website. At some places, our Website allows you to submit "User-Generated Content" by using the tools we make available. One way that User-Generated Content differs from other information you provide to us is that, once submitted, User-Generated Content is made available on our Website to others. Examples of User-Generated Content are information you provide as part of a promotion, which may include images and video content you submit or comments you make in response to a blog or social media post. Any personal data contained in User-Generated Content you submit can be read, collected, shared, or used by others, and could potentially be used to send you unsolicited messages. In addition, we may use User-Generated Content you submit on or through our Website for advertising campaigns and other promotions. Therefore, you should have no expectation of privacy with respect to User-Generated Content you submit on or through our Website. You should not submit any User-Generated Content you do not wish to make available to the general public, and you must take special care to make sure your submissions comply with our Terms of Use. In particular, your submissions must not violate the privacy or other rights of others.

Third-Party Social Media Platforms. We may share your email address or phone number with a third-party social media platform to confirm that you use the platform so that we can effectively advertise to you through it. Receiving your email address or phone number for this purpose informs these third-party social media platforms that you are a Crocs customer, and they may be allowed to use this information about you for their own marketing purposes. However, we prohibit third-party social media platforms from retaining or using any email address or phone number we provide to them that does not match one they already possess. In addition, we may provide functionality on our Website that allows you to automatically post information about the actions you take on our Website to a third-party social media platform. If you choose to take advantage of this functionality, people with access to your profile on the third-party platform may be able to see the actions you have taken—for example, the items you have purchased. Further, if you choose to link your profile on our Website with an account on a third-party social media platform, we may share the information in your profile with that third-party platform.

Affiliates and Subsidiaries. We may share your information with our affiliates and subsidiaries for their own marketing purposes. Before doing so, however, we may offer you the opportunity to “opt out” or “opt in” as required by applicable law.

Business Partners. From time to time, we may share your information with selected third parties (other than our service providers, affiliates, or subsidiaries) for their own marketing purposes, in accordance with applicable law and with your consent. For example, in cases where a contest or promotional offer is co-branded with or sponsored by another party, you may not be able to opt out of our sharing your information with that party. Rather, you should not participate in the contest or promotion if you do not want us to share your information with our co-sponsor.

Business Negotiations. We may contemplate, for strategic or other reasons, selling, buying, merging, or otherwise reorganizing one or more of our businesses. In negotiating with a third party about entering into such an arrangement, and in completing the transaction, we may need to disclose your information. In such cases, we will take reasonable measures to protect the information we disclose, for example, by requiring a prospective purchaser to sign a non-disclosure agreement limiting the use and protecting the confidentiality of the information.

Business Transfers. We may transfer the information you submit on or through our Website to any organization that, in whole or in part, acquires or merges with us, prior to and in connection with such transaction. Such information will be protected to the extent required by law.

Compliance With Laws and Protection of Our Rights and the Rights of Others. Crocs may be obligated to cooperate with various law enforcement inquiries. Crocs reserves the right to share or transfer your information to comply with a legal requirement and to disclose any activities or information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, determine necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, for the administration of justice, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to legal liability.

As Described in a Privacy Notice. We reserve the right to disclose your information as described in any privacy notice posted on a page of our Website where you provide that information.

This Privacy Policy applies only to our Website. You may visit other websites, through links on our Website, which may collect, use and share your personal data in accordance with their own privacy policies. The information practices of those websites linking from or to our Website are not covered by this Privacy Policy and we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such linked sites. We encourage you to be cautious before you disclose your personal data to others. If you register for Crocs on another website or use a website providing a service for Crocs, that website may provide personal data about you and your transactions back to Crocs.

Rights in Relation to Your Information

You are entitled to ask Crocs for a copy of your information, to correct it, erase or restrict its processing, or to ask us to transfer (parts of) this information to other organizations. You also have the right to object to certain processing activities, such as the profiling we may perform for the purposes of direct marketing as described in this Privacy Policy.

Where we have asked for your consent to process your data, you have the right to withdraw this consent, for example by using the opt-out and unsubscribe functionalities in our communications to you.

These rights can be limited where we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement or legitimate ground to process your data. Under such circumstances we are able to retain your data even if you withdraw your consent.

You always have the opportunity to review and change the information you provide to us by logging into the Website and entering in the new information yourself. You can edit your name, contact information and preferences by logging into the “My Account” section of the site.

How Long We Retain Your Data

Where you are a customer, Crocs will keep your information for the duration of any contractual relationship you have with us, and, to the extent permitted, after the end of that relationship for as long as necessary to perform the purposes set out in this notice. Laws may require us to hold certain information for specific periods. In other cases, Crocs may retain data for an appropriate period after any relationship with you ends to protect itself from legal claims, or to administer its business.

A Special Note About Children’s Privacy

You must be at least 16 years old to have our permission to use this Website, and at least 18 years old to register on our site or make any purchases in our online store. We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal data from or about visitors under 16 years of age. If you are under the age of 16, you can use this service only in conjunction with your parent’s or guardian’s permission.

Privacy Policy Changes

Crocs reserves the right to change, modify, add or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time and without prior notice, by posting the revised version of this Privacy Policy on the Website. Your use of our Website following any such change constitutes your agreement that all information collected from or about you through the Website after the revised Privacy Policy is posted will be subject to the terms of the revised Privacy Policy.

To alert you to these changes, we will provide a notice at the top of this Privacy Policy for at least 30 days after the new effective date. Unless the change is a minor change (such as a change in our contact information) or a non-substantive change (such as the reformatting of our Privacy Policy), we will also post notices (a) on our home page and/or on the relevant pages of our Website and (b) on any notice providing highlights of this Privacy Policy for 30 days after the new effective date to alert you to the change.

From time to time, for example, because of changes in the law or technology or the way we operate our business, we may ask your permission to use the information we have collected from you in new or different ways. We will do this by sending you a notice by email at the last email address you provided us, asking you to agree to the change. If you do not expressly agree to the change, we may, at our discretion, delete all or some of your personal data from our databases to avoid using your information in ways to which you have not consented.

You may access the current version of this Privacy Policy at any time by clicking on the link marked “Privacy Policy” at the bottom of each page of our Website.

Transfer of Data Abroad

Some of your data may be shared with or processed by our parent company, Crocs, Inc. and its service providers in the USA. We provide an adequate protection of such transfers by applying the EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses (read more here) and appropriate Privacy Shield certifications (read more here).

For other service providers and third parties outside of the EEA that are not subject to an adequacy decision (read more here) from the EC we apply the EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses (read more here).
