Personal Information We Collect and WhyGenerally, you may browse the Wade’s Jewelers Sites without providing any personally identifiable information. However, we may ask you to provide personally identifiable information at various times and places on the Wade’s Jewelers Sites. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with the requested information, you may not be able to access all of the areas on the Wade’s Jewelers Sites or participate in all of its features. When you visit and use the Wade’s Jewelers Sites, we may need to collect certain personal information from you in order to provide and improve upon our products, our inventory and services. How we collect this information will depend on how you choose to use our services and interact with us, including the services and opportunities we might provide on the Wade’s Jewelers Sites.
You can access many features on the Wade’s Jewelers Sites without providing personal information to us, but doing so may prevent you from making full use of all the online features and/or promotions we offer and may limit our ability to provide you with the level of service that you would otherwise expect from us. In short, the information we gather is all designed to help us deliver attentive customer service.
The Wade’s Jewelers Sites also uses a web use monitoring service which provides us with certain information about visitors such as IP addresses and publicly available information, for the purposes of giving us operational and marketing data about our website visitors' use of the Wade’s Jewelers Sites for our business purposes. This aggregate information provides statistics and publicly available information that we use to analyze, market and improve our Wade’s Jewelers Sites and business.
