Using Information We Collect
At Lehman's, we always want to provide you with the best possible shopping experience and fulfill your orders exactly as you've requested. To do this, we collect information that allows us to:
- Process and track your order
- Provide the services you request
- Contact you about the status of an order
- Send you catalogs or promotional offers we believe will be of interest to you
- Send you email updates and offers
- Identify your product and service preferences
- Customize our communications to you
- Provide information concerning product recalls or products you have purchased
- Improve our merchandise selection and customer service
We contract with other companies to provide certain services, including shipping, name and address verification, email distribution, catalog distribution, live online chat, market research, third party advertising, promotions management and payment processing. We provide these companies with only the information they need to perform their services and work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected. These companies are prohibited by contract from using this information for their own marketing purposes or from sharing this information with anyone other than Lehman's.
Lehman's may employ third party sites and services that may be framed or masked (placing their website within a Lehman's website) to provide a pleasurable experience of shopping on Lehman's website or to provide important services. If Lehman's utilizes this capability, we exercise care in selecting the external website and review their privacy polices periodically.
From time to time, we make our mailing list (names and addresses only) and general shopping activity available to reputable companies whose products or services we believe will be of interest to you. We do not share email addresses for this purpose. If you do not want to receive mailings from other reputable companies and prefer that we do not share any information with these companies, please contact us
On rare occasions, we may disclose specific information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, or when required by law to do so. We may also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation. We do not provide information to these agencies or companies for marketing or commercial purposes.
Our company and our trustedthird parties may share with one another anonymous versions of user informationcollected at this site. We may use that information to link to and issueanonymous cookies containing demographic or intent-based data for online behavioraladvertising purposes.

We offer choices about the types of information you receive from us. If you prefer not to receive catalogs or email updates from Lehman's or if you prefer to receive them less frequently, please visit the Your Account section of www.Lehmans.com or contact us at the address shown above. You can also unsubscribe from our email updates using the link provided in each edition of the email.
If you do not wish to receive other communications from us, such as surveys, please contact us at any of the places mentioned above.
So that we can be sure to identify you correctly, please be sure to provide us your exact name and address, or the mailing label from your catalog. Because mailings are planned in advance, it may take several weeks for your request to become effective. If due to human error you continue to receive unwanted communications, please contact us again, and we will make every effort to correct the situation.
Over the past several years, many third party services have become available to help consumers opt-out of catalog mailings. We currently do not honor requests made through these services, with the exception of Catalog Choice. We made this decision after careful consideration of customer service, data protection, privacy and whether or not fees were associated with the service. It is important to us that consumers not have to pay to make a catalog opt-out request. Catalog Choice met all of our requirements. If you prefer to use their service, we welcome you to visit their Web Site at catalogchoice.org. Whether you use Catalog Choice or contact us directly with your mailing preferences, we are committed to meeting your needs.

We may also use pixel tags – tiny graphic images – to tell us what parts of our Web site you have visited or to measure the effectiveness of any searches you may do on our site. Pixel tags also enable us to send you email in a format you can read and let us know when you have opened an email message from us.
We also contract with third party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. To do this, they will collect anonymous information about your visits to our Web site and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to this and other Web sites to target advertisements. These targeted advertisements may appear on other sites that you visit. This anonymous information is collected through the use of a cookie or pixel tag – industry standard technology used by most major Web sites. No personally identifiable information is collected in this process. These companies operate independently from Lehman’s and have established their own privacy and security policies.

When you provide us your email address, we will email you as necessary to process your order, respond to a request or provide customer service. For example, after you place an order at lehmans.com, you may receive an email confirmation and, in most cases, an email with package tracking information. Recipients of gifts may also receive email notifying them of the gift and providing information about the gift.
We may also send promotional emails about products, special offers, services or events we believe may be of interest to you. It is our intent to send promotional emails only to those who wish to receive them. We provide instructions on how to unsubscribe in each email and you can also contact us at any of the locations listed above.

It is our practice to use encryption whenever we receive or transmit sensitive data.
