Privacy Policy

GROHE takes your privacy seriously. Our policy is clear: we collect no personally identifiable information about you when you use any GROHE website unless you provide that information to us. Unless we have your authorization or are required to do so by law or other extraordinary circumstances, we will not share with any third party the personally identifiable information that we obtain from you.

What This Privacy Policy Covers
This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of information we collect when you use any website provided by GROHE (including, but not limited to, groheamerica.com and grohe.com). This policy does not describe information collection policies on websites not provided by GROHE, including those linked to from any GROHE website. It also does not cover information you may choose to share with other users of any GROHE website.

The Information We Collect
We do not collect any personally identifiable information about you other than that which you affirmatively choose to submit to us, such as your e-mail address, postal address and name.

From time to time we automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit a GROHE website, such as the IP address of your computer, the time and date of your visit, the pages that you access, and the number of times you return to the website. This information is not used to identify you, but is used in the aggregate for GROHE's internal marketing and similar purposes. This process may involve the automatic placement of a small, removable text file (commonly referred to as a "cookie") on your computer's hard drive. We also use cookies to keep records, store your preferences, improve our advertising and collect information based your past visits to our website. Information from cookies also tells us about the website you were visiting before you came to our site and the website you visit after you leave our site. Such information is used to generate ads by us or third party vendors based upon your past visits to our site.
How We Use the Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
We (or our vendors on our behalf) may use the personally identifiable information we collect to:
1. Operate, maintain and improve the website and our services;
2. Provide you with personalized ads and offers for products and services from us and participating business partners and/or our vendors;
3. Evaluate you eligibility for certain types of offers, products or services that may be of interest to you, and analyze advertising effectiveness;
4. Communicate and provide additional information that may be of interest to you about GROHE and our business partners, sometimes by combining you information with information we receive from other sources.
5. Communicate with you from time to time on topics that we believe may be of interest to you and to provide you with the ability to share ideas with other users of a GROHE website.
6. Administer rewards, surveys, sweepstakes, contests, or other promotional activities or events sponsored by GROHE or our business partners.

Your Choices and Right to Opt Out
You may notify us of any changes in your personal information, or request that such information be removed from our records by e-mail to privacy.policy@grohe.com. Please be aware, however, that if you choose to have your personally identifiable information removed from our records, you will no longer be able to receive certain updated information from GROHE, or participate in various functions of the GROHE websites. We may disclose information about you to third parties if we have a good-faith belief that we are required to do so by law or legal process, to respond to claims, or to protect the rights, property or safety of GROHE or others.
You may set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it's important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
You may manage how your browser handles cookies by adjusting its privacy and security settings. Browsers are different, so refer to instructions related to your browser to learn about cookie-related and other privacy and security settings that may be available. You can opt-out of being targeted by certain Third-Party Ad-Servers, such as Google and other third parties that provide the technology to place ads on websites and track ad performance, online using the National Advertising Initiative’s Opt-Out Tool, www.amazon.com/gp/dra/info or on TRUSTe’s site.
