This is information provided by cookies. Cookies are small alphanumeric identifier files that store information. They enable our systems to recognise your browser and to provide important features that personalise our site to make your shopping faster and easier. For example they store your cart information between your visits.
You can prevent your browser from accepting cookies through its help feature, but that prevents you from using the full functionality of our site. We recommend that you take full advantage of all the features we've designed to make shopping easy and fun.
Information That We Collect From Every WebsiteVisitor:
We collect anonymous cookie information about the site pages, items, stores, and articles you view. This is not used with personally identifiable information (such as the name and address you give us when you place an order), but as aggregate information (group information) that helps us learn more about how people use and react to our site, thereby helping us to create a more enriching shopping experience for you. We store information about the items you add to your cart so that your cart selections are not lost between visits, but we will not know who placed the items in the cart unless you send an order.
Surveys and Submissions
Periodically, The Bradford Exchange may ask customers to participate in surveys. If you participate, the information we collect may be associated with your account, and used to improve your overall customer experience.
Where permitted by privacy laws, we may use your personal information to offer you special promotional offers and exciting product opportunities which we think will be of benefit or interest to you. To this end, the nature of information we collect is strictly relevant to the offer, product or service we are recommending. This information is obtained using fair, honest and reputable methods. If you do not wish to receive these product offerings or catalogues, you may use the Contact Us feature on our site, or write to us at the address listed at the bottom of this section
Email and Opting Out of Email:
When you order an item, a catalogue, or have a customer service request via online, we send you an email to confirm that we received your request or to answer your inquiry. These messages are generated automatically, and are sent regardless of "no-email" requests. The Bradford Exchange complies with the Spam Act of 2003 and best practices guidelines.
If you prefer not to receive other types of email, you can opt out using the opt-out link at the bottom of every email we send or email us at marke.ting(at)bgeltd.com and we will remove you from our lists.
Please remember that if you add or change email addresses, you need to separately notify us about your preferences for those email addresses.
We may occasionally make your details available to other reputable marketers who believe they have products of interest to you. To ensure privacy, the other company cannot record your name and address unless you respond to their offer. We may disclose personal information in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order, collection agency, law enforcement agency or a subpoena.
If you object to our sharing information about you as a customer with these third party companies, you may use the Contact Us feature on our site, or write to us at the address listed at the bottom of this section.
Even if you opt out from information sharing generally, we must share information about your individual orders with the business partner that packs, ships and invoices your purchases, and with outside companies on a confidential basis as needed to obtain approval to debit your credit card, to verify your address, to deliver your orders and collect payment.
When you visit our Website from a link on another Website, or in an ad or email, a cookie will be placed on your computer, and if you make a purchase, information may be provided to the referring Website. This information is not personally identifiable. This will occur even if you opt out from other types of information sharing.

We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of The Bradford Exchange, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection, collecting unpaid purchase balances, and reducing credit risks.
