HOW DOES UNIQLO USE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED?

We will treat all your Personal Information as confidential (although we reserve the right to disclose this information in the circumstances set out below). Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we do not share your information with any third parties other than for the limited, explicit reasons specified below; neither are we in the business of selling it to others.

The Personal Information are shared on a limited basis from time to time to send postal mail and e-mail, remove repetitive information from customer lists, analyse data, provide marketing assistance and provide customer service.

We will only disclose data to:


  • Other companies within our Group of companies,
  • Business partners,
  • Suppliers we engage to process data on our behalf,
  • Government bodies and law enforcement agencies,
  • Successors in title to our business.

We share personal information with our parent company and affiliates that either are subject to this Privacy Policy or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Policy.


We share it on a limited basis with agents we use from time to time to send postal mail and e-mail, remove repetitive information from customer lists, analyse data, provide marketing assistance and provide customer service.


We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Policy; or protect the rights, property, or safety of the Site, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. However, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personal information for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this policy.


Given that the Internet is a global environment, using it to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"), although the data will always be held securely and in line with the requirements of UK data protection. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA working for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfillment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services.


By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing according to the purposes here above described. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


We use your personal information to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us. In addition, if you supply us with your postal address online, you may receive periodic mailings from us with information regarding a new collection, new products, new store locations, or upcoming promotional offers or events.


In the case that Uniqlo, or substantially all of its assets are acquired by one or more third parties as a result of a merger, sale, consolidation or liquidation, customer information may be one of the transferred assets.


You agree that you do not object to us contacting you for any of the above purposes whether by telephone, e-mail or in writing and you confirm that you do not and will not consider any of the above as being a breach of any of your rights.

CHILDREN

We do not and will not knowingly collect information from any unsupervised person under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, you must not use this site or submit any personal data to us unless you have the consent of, and are supervised by, a parent or guardian.



TRANSACTION SECURITY AND WEBSITE MISUSE

To provide you with the best services and to allow you a secure experience regarding the payment and the delivery of your orders, we will use some of your data in order to prevent and to avoid any misuse of this Site. We have asked Arvato, our service supplier, to test such data on an automated basis.


Concerned data are: data regarding the implementation of the contract (purchased items, personal information, payment method and banking data), data relating to your visits on this Site (information about visited web pages and click paths), together with anonymous data of your terminals used to visit the Site (resolution of your monitor or version of your operating system), and that can be used to recognize your terminals on subsequent visits with a certain degree of probability.


Following such test and depending on the result, we may decide to implement any relevant security measures or, when the transaction security can’t be ensured, we may decide to cancel the order. In case of an incident, such as fraudulent use of the means of payment or fraud with the delivery, the data relating to the order will be stored in a specific file which would allow us to conduct any relevant additional verification for future orders. You will be notified of any test conducted by us, allowing you to express your observations.


According to any applicable regulations, you can access, amend or delete your personal data by contacting: UNIQLO EUROPE LTD - Data Protection, 1 Kingsway – 6th floor London WC2B 6AN – UK. In the case you withdraw your consent you may no longer be able to use the website or to place an order.

  • Avoid using the same password for multiple online accounts.
