The purpose of this privacy policy is to outline the steps we take to keep your personal information confidential, to inform you about the manner in which we collect, use and disclose your personal information, and to provide you with DAVIDS contact information should you have questions or concerns about our personal information protection practices.

 

What information does DAVIDS collect?

 

DAVIDS maintains a detailed record of the purchases that you have made with our company.

Why does DAVIDS collect your personal information?

 

• To ensure that your footwear needs are looked after. Following your in-store purchase, your Shoe Advisor will contact you to let you know when your products arrive if applicable and then, once again, following the sale to ensure that you are satisfied with the products you have purchased. Select in-store customers who choose to additionally shop on-line will also be contacted subsequent to item delivery to ensure that purchases meet expectations.

 

• To improve service delivery. By maintaining detailed records of your previous purchases, and by recording lifestyle information about you such as the kind of work you do, your travel habits etc., we gain a better understanding of your personal preferences and are better able to personalize your shopping experience each and every time you visit or contact one of our stores or Customer Service Representatives. Similarly, it allows us to guide potential gift givers in the right direction in terms of your style, size and other preferences.
