Privacy Policy

At OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM, we recognize the importance of privacy to visitors of our Web site. This privacy policy explains what type of information is collected from you when you visit our Web site and how that information may be used.

Gathering of Information:
OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM collects personally-identifying information (such as your name, e-mail address, address, telephone number and/or credit card information) from the OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM Web site only if you choose to provide that information to us. Like all other Web servers, OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM's Web server automatically creates log files for each visitor who accesses our site. These "access logs" allow us to make our site more useful to our visitors. The access logs do NOT record a visitor's name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, or any other personally-identifying information. Rather, they contain some or all of the following information: • The Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine which accessed our Web site. • The date of the visit. • The time of the visit. • The path taken through our Web site. • The browser being used. • A list of files downloaded or viewed. • Any errors encountered.

Cookies:
OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM also uses 'cookies' to collect information. A cookie is a string of characters that can be written to a file on the user's hard drive when the user visits a Web site. Only the Web site that set the cookie can read it, and it can only be used as a record keeping device to store information that the site already has. It cannot, for example, be used to read other information from the user's hard drive.

OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM uses cookies to track users' activity through the site in order to improve the site's architecture, to offer the user interactive features that would not be possible without them, and to recall specific information to save the user time during subsequent visits to the site. If you wish to prevent certain or all cookies from being set to your hard drive you may disable them in your browser's preferences, although your browser might then be unable to accommodate certain functionalities on OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM.

Use of Information:
The use of personally-identifying information is limited to the following: responding to user e-mails; listing name and location (city, state and/or country) information provided by users when publishing testimonials or other submissions; fulfillment of orders; sending communications, including asking questions about orders or for marketing and promotional communications, from our Company; and other purposes specified at the time the information is gathered. Personally-identifying information collected by OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM is not provided to outside parties except companies we work with (such as drop-ship vendors). In these circumstances, the information is provided for the sole purpose of -- and only to the extent necessary for -- delivering the requested merchandise or information. OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM also may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or if it believes that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process, (b) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM Web site, or (c) protect the personal safety or property of OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM Web site users, the public or OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM and its employees.

Security:
OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM has in place what we believe to be appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Our website uses Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) to encrypt your personal credit information, including your credit card number, before it travels over the Internet. SSL technology is the industry standard for secure online transactions. Because we use SSL, placing an order online at our website is just as safe as giving your credit card number over the phone.

Children:
We recognize the particular importance of protecting privacy where children are involved. We are committed to protecting children's privacy on the Internet and we comply fully with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If a child has provided our website with personally identifiable information, we ask that a parent or guardian call or contact us and we will delete the information about the child from our files.

Corrections to Personal Data
Opting Out Please Contact Us to
    a) correct or update any personal information in the OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM database that you state is erroneous or
    b) opt-out of future communications from OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM. The user understands that it may be impossible to delete personal information entirely because of backups and records of deletions.

Acceptance of Privacy Policy Terms:
OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM reserves the right to change this policy. Any changes to this policy will be posted to this page as soon as reasonably possible, so please check this page periodically. Use of the OVERSTOCKSTOVES.COM Web site constitutes consent to any policy then in effect.
