This Privacy Statement describes the types of information Luxottica Retail North America Inc. ("Luxottica Retail") collects from you when you visit or order products from TargetOptical.com (the "Site"), and explains what we do with that information. This Privacy Statement is effective as of August 29, 2010 and will remain in effect until we replace it.
INFORMATION COLLECTION & USE
Purchasing a Product or Service
If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (including, but not limited to, name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (including, but not limited to, credit card number, expiration date, etc.). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.
Surveys or Contests
From time to time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys, contests or sweepstakes on our Site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes your name, address, e-mail address, age and certain demographic information (such as income level and gender). We use this information to administer the survey, contest or sweepstakes, to monitor the interests and attitudes of visitors to our Site and to ensure that our Site provides information that is relevant and helpful. We also use this information to communicate with you about offers and events at Target Optical. You may, however, choose not to receive these types of communications. Please see the section below titled "Choice and Opt-out."
We may use or partner with a third party to advertise, promote or conduct these surveys, contests and sweepstakes; service providers are prohibited from using our users' personally identifiable information for any other purpose other than the administration of the survey, contest or sweepstakes. Other than such third party, we will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a survey, contest or sweepstakes with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users' movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
We also use a third-party tracking service to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our Site in the aggregate; and we use pixels, or transparent GIF files to enable us to learn which advertisements bring users to our Site. We may from time to time use other third parties for similar type tracking services. Any information we track in this manner is anonymous, limited to usage and volume statistics, and is used to provide insight into the effectiveness of our online marketing initiatives and strategies.
We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file.
We set a session cookie to store your passwords, so you don't have to enter it more than once per session. Persistent cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site, such as contests, surveys and online shopping will be limited.
Communications from the Site

Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.
We store information that we collect through cookies, log files and third party sources to create a "profile" of your preferences. We tie your personally identifiable information, and your purchasing history, to information in the profile, in order to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers and to improve the content of the Site for you. We do not share your profile with third parties other than third parties that assist us in our marketing efforts.

Please see our HIPAA Privacy Statement for information on our privacy practices, our legal duties, and your rights concerning your health information. Any health information we collect from you on this site will be handled in accordance with the terms of our HIPAA Privacy Statement.
Aggregate Information (Non-Personally Identifiable)
We share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our agents, including agencies or third-party vendors used to aggregate demographic information, provide marketing analysis and consult on advertising strategies. This information does not identify individual users. We do not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.
Information collected on this Site may be shared with our current and future affiliates and our other brands, including, but not limited to LensCrafters, EyeMed Vision Care, Pearle Vision, Sears Optical and Sunglass Hut (collectively, the "Luxottica Companies"). .The Luxottica Companies will occasionally send you information on products, services, special deals and promotions in which you might have an interest. The Luxottica Companies' use of your information will be limited by the terms of this Privacy Statement in the same way that our use of your information is limited. If you do not wish to receive communications from any or all of the Luxottica Companies, you may choose not to allow us to share your information with them. Please see the section below titled "Choice and Opt-out."
Other than the Luxottica Companies, any successor entities to the Luxottica Companies, and our agents and partners, or as otherwise provided in this Privacy Statement, we do not share your personally identifiable information with third parties.
We use an outside shipping company to fulfill orders, and a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
Choice and Opt-out
We provide you the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes, or if you no longer wish to receive our promotional communications, you can indicate your preference on our email communications by following the opt out process on the communication.
You will be notified when your personal information is collected by any third-party that is not our agent/service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party.
