This policy applies to Hanna Andersson, LLC's ("Hanna" or "Hanna Andersson") treatment of personal information collected through our website, mobile site or apps and when you submit personal information to Hanna via social media channels (“Sites”). This policy also applies to personal information collected through offline interactions with Hanna, such as phone calls with our customer service team and information you provide when you visit our retail stores or events. Hanna Andersson is located in the United States. We process your personal information in the United States.
If you are a California resident, please see the “for users based in California” section below.
Hanna collects information about you from the following sources: First is what you may provide us when you interact with Hanna Andersson. Second is certain data that is collected automatically as you use the Sites. Third, are inferences we may generate about you. Finally, we may also collect information about you from other sources. Please see below for more details.
You may provide us with certain personal information when making a purchase (online, through the call center or at a store), logging into your account, registering for an account, requesting a catalog, signing up for email updates, participating in a survey, interacting with Hanna (via social media, chat, email or phone), or participating in our referral program.
The personal information you may provide us includes:
Much of this information is optional. For example, when you purchase products from the Hanna Andersson website, you must provide your name, email address, shipping/billing address, and payment card data, but you are not required to create an account. When you check out as a guest, we use your personal information to fulfill your order, and otherwise as permitted under this policy.
Certain personal information is collected automatically when you use our Sites. This personal information generally falls into these categories:
Some of this information is collected via cookies, as described below. We may connect personal information collected automatically with data we already have about you, so we can identify you as a Hanna customer. For example, we may link your activity in a Hanna store to your use of the Hanna website. This allows us to provide the best shopping experience possible. We examine metrics such as how you are shopping through our Sites, the performance of our marketing efforts, and your response to those marketing efforts.
We also generate inferences about you based on information we collect about you, including your shopping preferences.
We also collect information about you from other sources, including from our marketing partners to help us track ad campaign performance.
Hanna and its trusted business partners employ technology features known as cookies and tags to understand how you interact with our Sites and email messages. Read more about the cookies Hanna uses and how you can opt out by visiting our Cookie Notice page.
Your Internet browser and mobile device may allow you to adjust your browser settings so that "do not track" requests are sent to the websites you visit. Hanna does not respond to "do not track" requests at this time.
Personal information that is collected is used in the following ways:
Hanna does not sell, rent or trade our customer email addresses with third parties for their own marketing purposes. However, we may share your personal information with our third-party distributors, vendors, suppliers and other service providers who provide services to us or on our behalf, such as operating and supporting the Sites, performing analytics, marketing or consulting services, assisting us with the preparation and mailing of our business and marketing communications, and with order processing and fulfillment functions.
When you order a product, Hanna provides your name and mailing address (not your email address) to other reputable partner companies who may send you mailings. If you do not wish for us to share this information with these companies, you can add your name to our "Opt Out" list by sending us an email at customerservice@hannaAndersson.com or calling 800-222-0544. If you send an email, please be sure to provide your name and mailing address in the message and include “Opt-out of Mailings” in the subject line.
Where you choose to participate in certain activities through the Sites, your personal information may be posted publicly. These activities are optional. For example:
We may disclose your information to government authorities or other third parties if:
Your personal information may be collected, stored or processed by Hanna Andersson or other third parties (as described above) in countries other than the country in which your personal information originally was shared, including in the United States. The laws in those countries may not provide the same level of data protection as the country in which you initially provided your personal information. Hanna Andersson will enter into appropriate agreements when sharing your personal information with third parties to enable the lawful processing of your information.
We may share aggregated or de-identified information without restriction. While this information will not identify you personally, in some instances third parties may be able to combine this aggregate information with other data they have about you, or that they receive from third parties, in a manner that allows them to identify you personally.

If you wish to opt out of allowing certain cookies, please visit our Cookie Notice page to manage your cookie preferences. Please note that the way the cookie management tool functions is by actually dropping a cookie on your browser. This delivers the message: “stop allowing cookies.” Therefore, if you delete, block or otherwise restrict cookies, or use a different computer or Internet browser, you’ll need to renew your cookie management choices.
You may opt out of advertising provided directly by Hanna: If you do not wish to receive marketing correspondence (including catalogs and emails), please email us at customercarecenter@hannaAndersson.com or call us at 800-222-0544.

We maintain a "Do Not Mail" file to ensure we honor your "opt out" requests for print mailings. Please note that, since mailings are arranged in advance, it may take up to eight weeks for your print mailing "opt out" to become effective. If you make purchases from our website, you will still receive order and shipping confirmation emails. In addition, customer service may contact you by phone, email, or mail with questions related to your order.

If you delete your account, your account will be deactivated, you will be opted out of future email communications, you will no longer receive catalogues, and your personal information will be deleted from Hanna systems other than as may be retained by Hanna under applicable law.

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and other data protection laws grant you certain rights in relation to your personal information. Where applicable to you, you can:
Withdrawing your consent to our processing of your personal information will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. You should also be aware that if you do withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain services to you. Where this is the case, we will let you know at the time you withdraw your consent. Please note that even after you have withdrawn your consent, we may continue to process your personal information to the extent required or otherwise permitted by law, in particular, in connection with exercising and defending our legal rights or meeting our legal and regulatory obligations.

The security of your personal information is very important to Hanna, and we have implemented commercially reasonable measures to protect your information. Our website is PCI DSS compliant and uses SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer) technology to encrypt your order information, such as your name, address, and credit card number, during data transmission. We use a third-party payment processor, which is also PCI DSS compliant.
Our customer service center and stores also operate over a private, secure network.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We encourage customers to periodically review this policy to stay informed about how we collect, use, and protect customer information. You can see when this Privacy Statement was last updated by checking the “last updated” date displayed at the beginning of this Privacy Statement.

We strongly recommend you review the privacy policies of any third-party sites you visit to understand the data collection and use practices of that third party.
