The Way We Use Personal Data
We use the personal data you provide when placing an order or accessing this website to complete that order and to provide a more personalized shopping experience. We also disclose this personal data to third parties, such as payment processors, in order to complete orders.
We maintain credit/debit card/procurement card information only until payment for your order is processed.  H&K do not store any credit/debit card information and all credit card information stored by the credit card payment processing company used by H&K is stored securely and used only for the purpose of facilitating future purchases from H&K.
We also use your information to communicate with you, for example, to answer the e-mail and correspondence we receive, to confirm your order, to send more information about promotional activities, and to notify you of important changes in the functionality of the Web site.
We may use your information to make recommendations for additional products or special offers, and to provide you with updates on new products that we believe may be of interest to you.
We may disclose personal data in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency's request.
We will not use or share the personal data provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Customization and Aggregate data
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our Web site and gather information for product management and sales development at H&K. For example, we may tell our sales and marketing staff that “X,” number of individuals visited a certain area on our Web site. We would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. This aggregate information may also be shared with H&K’s affiliates.
Our Commitment to Security of Personal Data
We have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. When you place orders or access your account information, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software receives encrypted information through the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) of your internet browser which encrypts the information you input before it is sent to us and prevents anyone else from reading it as the information travels from your computer to ours. Verisign SSL technology is used by this website. If you are still concerned about placing an order online, call a customer service representative at the dedicated order telephone number for each H&K location and place your order via phone.
