YOUR U.S. PRIVACY RIGHTS

Depending on where you reside and in accordance with applicable law, you may have additional rights related to the personal information collected from and/or about you, subject to certain exceptions and limitations. If you are a resident of a state that provides these additional rights, you may exercise them in accordance with this section. For purposes of this section, the term “personal information” includes “personal information” and “personal data” as defined by applicable law.

If your personal information is subject to a consumer privacy law in your state, you may have the right to:

  • Confirm whether we process your personal information, know what information we have collected, and access your personal information.
  • Obtain your personal information in a portable and readily usable format.
  • Delete the personal information we have about you, subject to exceptions under applicable law.
  • Correct inaccuracies in your personal information, taking into account the nature of the personal information and the purposes of the processing.
  • Opt-out of the use or processing of your personal information for profiling or targeted advertising.
  • Opt-out of the sale or sharing of your personal information.

Under certain state laws, you may also have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for the exercise of any of these privacy rights. We will not discriminate against you because you have exercised any of your rights or change the price and quality of our products or services.

Certain state laws may also provide you the right to appeal our decisions regarding your rights requests if we do not respond to your requests or do not take action regarding your requests. Additionally, if you are a resident of the state of California, you may have a right to pursue legal action for improper handling of your Personal Data.

Submitting a Request

If you wish to exercise the rights listed above, and are a resident of a state that provides such privacy rights, you may submit a request by emailing privacy@vuori.com, clicking here, or by calling customer support at 1-844-880-5355. If you choose to submit your request via email, you must include “Privacy Rights Request” in the subject line and clearly provide us with the following information: what type of request you are making, your full name, email address, and physical address. You may only make one request per email.

We are required to provide you with access to your personal information or delete your personal information only in response to a verifiable request. When you exercise these rights and submit a request to us, we will verify your identity by asking you to provide us with additional information such as your email address, order numbers of previous orders of our products and services, or the last four digits of a credit or debit card used to make a purchase. We also may use a third-party verification provider to verify your identity. We will endeavor to honor your requests unless such a request falls under certain exemptions afforded by law. Please note that the number of requests you may submit may be limited by applicable law. If you request that we provide you with specific pieces of information about you, or that we delete sensitive personal information, we may apply heightened verification standards than what we would apply to other types of requests. The information you provide must match the information we have in our possession. This measure is in place to help ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who does not have the right to receive it. The information collected through this process will be used for verification purposes only.

Opt-Out Preference Signals: You may use an Opt-Out Preference Signal, such as the Global Privacy Control (GPC), to opt-out of the sale and share of your personal information.

Authorized Agents

You may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf on our website through our contact form. If you are an authorized agent and wish to submit a consumer privacy request on behalf of another person as permitted under applicable law, you must verify your legal authority to act on behalf of that person, and your identity and the identity of the other person, to our satisfaction before we can fulfill your request.

Deletion Rights

Under applicable law, we may decline a request to delete your information, in part or in whole, if we determine that there is a lawful basis for retaining the information, including because the information is necessary to (i) complete a transaction or perform a contract between us; (ii) ensure security; (iii) debug or repair errors; (iv) exercise a legal right; (v) comply with another law or a legal obligation; (vi) conduct research; (vii) enable internal uses that are reasonably aligned with our consumers’ reasonable expectations; or (viii) otherwise use the information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.

For more information about the business purposes for which we disclose personal information, see “Use of Personal Information” and see “Collection of Information” for what types of information may be shared.

Categories of Personal Data Sold or Shared

We do not sell consumers’ personal information for the exchange of money.

We may also share personal information with our third-party marketing partners that may use personal information for marketing and commercial purposes.

  • identifiers such as a device or browser identifier; cookies, beacons, pixel tags, mobile ad identifiers and similar technology; customer number, IP address, online identifier, and other forms of persistent identifiers;
  • commercial information, including records of products or services purchased, obtained, or considered, and other purchasing or consuming histories;

  • inferences drawn from any of the information identified above to create a profile about you reflecting your preferences and behavior.

Vuori does not use or disclose sensitive personal information or sensitive data, as defined in applicable laws, for any purposes other than those permitted by applicable law.

California’s Shine the Light Law

This Privacy Policy describes how we may share your information for marketing purposes, as described above. If you are a California resident, the Shine the Light law permits you to request and obtain from us once per calendar year information about any of your personal information shared with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes, including the categories of information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we have shared such information. To request this information and for any other questions about our privacy practices and compliance with California law, please contact us through the contact form on our website.

Notice of Financial Incentive

We sometimes offer exclusive price discounts, rewards, offers, deals, coupons, services and other perks for (1) customers who participate in our loyalty and rewards programs, such as the Vuori V1 Community Program, described below; and (2) participants in our other promotions, programs or sweepstakes (collectively “Programs”). Through our Programs, consumers may provide us with any or all of the categories of information described in “Personal Information We Collect From You”. Under applicable U.S. privacy law, participating in any of our Programs may be considered a financial incentive provided in exchange for the collection and retention of personal information. Participation in these Programs is optional and consumers may opt-out at any time. In addition to this disclosure, each Program contains terms specific to that promotion. Your participation in any of these Programs will be considered affirmative consent to the terms of that particular Program.

We offer these Programs to, among other things, enhance our relationship with our customers. The value to our business, in the aggregate, of customers’ personal information depends on specific facts, such as whether and to what extent they take advantage of any offerings. We do not calculate the value of customers’ information for our accounting statements. To the extent we would, however, such valuation could be directly or reasonably related to the cost associated with acquiring or developing such information.

Vuori V1 Community Program

In connection with the Vuori V1 Community Program, we may offer financial incentives and/or price or service differences (“Incentives”) to participants in exchange for our use of your personal information.

To offer these Incentives, we must track the personal information you provide when you sign up or engage in activities in connection with the Vuori V1 Community Program, such as your email address, referral activity, purchase history, and engagement with Vuori (“Vuori V1 Community Program Data”), as described in the Vuori V1 Community Program Terms and Conditions.

The value of Vuori V1 Community Program Data is determined based on the revenue generated from activities related to the collection and use of Vuori V1 Community Program members’ personal information less expenses related to offering the Vuori V1 Community Program. This value will vary by member depending on distinct other factors. The value of Vuori V1 Community Program Data is reasonably related to the costs associated with offering the Incentives. You can register for the program here, and you can withdraw from or cancel your registration at any time by contacting us at support@vuoriclothing.com.
