Privacy Notice

Coach, Inc. (the “Company”) collects certain information when you visit the websites we own in order to improve your experience and allow us to better communicate with you regarding our products and services. This privacy policy is intended to assist you in understanding what information we gather when you visit us and provide information to us at a retail location located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) operated by the Company or one of its subsidiaries, affiliates or distributors (“Retail Stores”) and when you visit our websites directly linked to this policy that specifically serve audiences within the EEA (the “Sites”). This policy also covers how we use that collected information, and the safeguards we have in place to protect the information. This privacy policy applies to information received by the Company in connection with the Sites, and also covers personal information gathered at our Retail Stores that is transferred to or received by the Company in the United States by us or from our subsidiaries and affiliates in the EEA in any format including electronic, paper or verbal. By using and submitting information to our Sites or providing information at our Retail Stores, you are agreeing that we may collect, use and disclose the information we collect in accordance with the purposes and uses identified in this policy.

The United States Department of Commerce and the European Commission have agreed on a set of data protection principles (the “ Safe Harbor Principles”) to enable U.S. companies to satisfy the laws of the European Union (“EU”) member states requiring that adequate protection be given to personal information transferred from the EU to the United States. The EEA also has recognized the Safe Harbor Principles as providing adequate data protection. The Company adheres to the Safe Harbor Principles and has certified its compliance.

For purposes of this privacy policy, “personal information” means any information which identifies, or could be used to identify any individual, including name, address, telephone number, email address, billing and account information, credit or debit card information, and other information incidental to providing goods or services. While not personal information by itself, the Company also collects and retains certain browsing information described in more detail below, as well as information about purchases you make at Retail Stores, and, in the event that purchases are enabled on the Sites, regarding purchases on the Sites. For purposes of this policy, “personal information” shall not include anonymized information, aggregated information, or publically available information unless the same has been combined with non-public personal information.

We collect personal information from you on our Sites only when you voluntarily provide us with this information, such as when placing an order through the Sites or registering your Coach product on the Sites; establishing an account or adding information to your account such as by setting up a wish list, gift reminders, or address book entries; entering a contest or sweepstakes; taking a survey; contacting us with a comment or question; requesting a catalog; signing up to receive emails or text messages about our latest products and services; requesting to receive investor alerts; or applying for a job online. Similarly, we collect information from you in our Retail Stores only when you voluntarily provide us with the information, such as purchasing our products, providing information about your Coach preferences, taking a survey or signing up to receive marketing information or applying for a job at a Retail Store.

If you do not wish to receive cookies from the Sites, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting a cookie and refuse the cookie when alerted by the browser. Cookies can also be refused by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. Please note that certain pages of the Sites may not function properly if cookies are turned off. Please consult your web browser’s Help documentation for more information about how to turn cookies on and off your browser.

  • In order to serve you better, we may combine information you provide to us on the Sites with information you provide to us in other ways, such as in our Retail Stores, and with information received from third parties including demographic or public information.

    We will not use your personal information for any purposes incompatible with the purposes described above without notifying you of such uses and offering you an opportunity to consent to or opt out of such use.


    HOW WE MAY SHARE INFORMATION


    We may share your information collected on these Sites and in our Retail Stores with our subsidiaries or affiliated companies, including those located in other countries within the EEA and the United States. We also may share your information with selected third parties who provide services to us, including to process payments, provide electronic online investor information, monitor Site activity, serve Site content, help to maintain our customer database, administer emails, surveys, or contests and administer and maintain employment application information. Such third parties may have access to, store and process your personal information to provide services on our behalf, which may occur in the United States or in other countries outside of the EEA. Our service providers are not authorized to use your information for any purpose other than to provide the contracted services. In any event, we will obtain assurances from these subsidiaries, affiliates and third parties that they will safeguard your personal information in a manner consistent with this privacy policy and the Safe Harbor Principles. Examples of appropriate assurances that may be provided by these parties include: (i) the party’s certification that they abide by the Safe Harbor Principles; (ii) a contract requiring that the party provide at least the same level of protection as the Safe Harbor Principles; or (iii) the party being subject to the EU Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC) or other law requiring an adequate level of privacy protection.

    We also must always reserve the right to disclose information about you as required by law, in response to legal process including law enforcement requests, and where needed to protect the safety, property, or legal rights of users of the Sites, or the Company or our subsidiaries or affiliates, or third parties.

    Occasionally we may provide links to other websites which are not owned or operated by the Company and which you may access at your sole discretion. Please note that this privacy policy applies only to the personal data that we collect or receive on our Sites or in our Retail Stores and we cannot be responsible for personal data that third parties may collect, store and use through those third party websites for which we provide links. When you activate links to these third party sites, you will leave our Sites and we will have no control over, and accept no responsibility or liability in respect of, the privacy practices or the content of such websites, including (without limitation) any advertising, content, products, goods or other materials or services on or available from such third party websites. If you elect to provide your personal information on any third party website, the information will be subject to that website’s privacy and security practices. You should consult the privacy and security notices of such third party website prior to providing any personal information. In the event that a third party website operator discloses your personal data to us, we will process such data in a manner consistent with the Safe Harbor Principles and this privacy policy.

    In the unlikely event that the Company or substantially all of our assets are acquired by another company, or due to any merger, reorganization or liquidation, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets. Your personal information will remain subject to any pre-existing privacy policy, unless you consent otherwise, and be processed in accordance with the Safe Harbor Principles.

    Except as described in this privacy policy, we will not share your personal information with third parties without your consent.

We also use firewall technology, password controls, and other technological and procedural safeguards in maintaining the Sites and our databases. In addition, we have implemented administrative, technical and physical measures to address the confidentiality of personal information received from the Retail Stores. Although we have implemented the above security measures, you should be aware that 100% security is not possible.
