Privacy Policy

Effective September 1, 2022

PUMA, and the PUMA group of companies (collectively, “PUMA” or "we", "us", or "our") respects the privacy of all of our visitors and pledges to provide you with the best online experience possible. This PUMA Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes what personal information we collect from you via our Services (defined below), how we may use it and the steps we take to ensure that it is protected. This Privacy Policy applies to personal information we may collect from you through any PUMA online services that posts this Privacy Policy, including our mobile app for users located in the U.S. and Canada, as well as through our retail stores located in the U.S. and Canada, PUMA-sponsored events, PUMA e-mails originated from the U.S. and Canada, and official PUMA operated surveys and sweepstakes entry forms, or in any other instance when you contact our operations in the U.S. and Canada (collectively “Services”).

California residents should see our California Privacy Rights notice for additional notices and how to exercise their California privacy rights. Nevada residents should see our Nevada Privacy Rights section for how to exercise their Nevada privacy rights.

BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICES, ON ANY COMPUTER, MOBILE PHONE, TABLET, CONSOLE OR OTHER PHYSICAL OR ELECTRONIC DEVICE (COLLECTIVELY, "DEVICE"), OR BY OTHER METHOD, YOU CONSENT TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY.

PUMA may modify this Privacy Policy at any time effective upon its posting, and additional privacy notices or policies may also apply. Your continued use of our products and services constitutes your acceptance to this Privacy Policy, applicable additional notices and policies and any updates. Do not use the Service if you do not agree.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW

We collect information you give us or permit us to access. We may also collect information regarding your interaction with, and use of, our products and services. Information we may collect includes, but is not limited to, your name, image, birth date, email and physical address, IP address, telephone number or mobile phone identifier, gender, contact lists, social media information, location (including GPS) information, activity and performance information, Device identifier and hardware information, browser type and language, cookie information, system type, whether you have enabling software to access certain features, access times, referring website URLs, information about your purchases and other information about your interactions with us, and when necessary, credit card information. We also collect information about gift and eGift Card recipients provided by the giver.

For example, and as more fully explained in the next section, we may automatically collect certain information about you when you access or use the Services, or shop in our stores, including:

  • Log and Usage Information: We collect information about your use of the Services, such as the type of browser you use, access times, pages viewed, items placed in your cart, links clicked, browsing behavior, and the referring URL (the webpage you visited before navigating to the Services). We also collect information regarding customer traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve our Services, to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience, and to personalize the Services, our communications with you, and your shopping experience.
  • Device Information: We collect information about the device you use to access the Services, including the hardware model, IP address, unique device identifiers and operating system and version.
  • Transaction Information: When you purchase or return a product, we collect information about the transaction, such as product details and the date and location of the purchase/return.
  • Customer Service Information: We also collect information you provide via any of our customer service channels including via phone, email and chat.
  • Video Data: We use video cameras in our stores for security purposes, loss prevention, and asset protection. We may also use cameras in our stores for operational purposes, such as traffic pattern analysis. We will not use cameras to personally identify you, without your consent, except when the identification is for safety, security, anti-theft, or law enforcement purposes.
  • RFID Data: We may use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) for inventory management and logistics support. RFID tags consist of a small chip and antenna that provide a unique identifier for objects. RFID serves the same purpose as a bar code and must be scanned by a specific type of reader in close proximity to the tag to retrieve tag data. RFID is not used to track or monitor any items once you leave our stores.
  • WiFi Data: Some of our retail stores may offer free Wi-Fi services to visitors. Wi-Fi routers capture certain data, such as Device information and telemetry data related to signal strength and quality related to your use of our Wi-Fi service, and we may analyze Wi-Fi data automatically collected to provide operational insights such as foot traffic volumes, dwell times, and how customers move through our stores.
  • Information Collected by Cookies and Other Technologies: As more fully explained in the next section, we (and our service providers and third parties) may use cookies, web beacons (also known as "tracking pixels") and other collection or tracking technologies (“Data Technologies”) to record and collect information about you when you interact with the Services, including information about your interaction with the Services such as click behavior, indicated preferences, session or site visit recordings, browsing and purchasing behavior. We may combine this information with other information we collect about you and use it for various purposes, such as improving our websites and your online experience, understanding which areas and features of our sites are popular, counting visits, understanding campaign effectiveness, tailoring our communications with you, determining whether an email has been opened and links within the email have been clicked and for other business purposes. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, please see the Cookies section below.

If you participate in a contest or sweepstakes that we sponsor, we may, in addition to the above, collect the information to administer the sweepstakes, or as otherwise disclosed at the time of collection, such as your contact information, your product size information, your preferences, your location, and other information you provide to us.

Additionally, we may collect your mobile telephone number in connection with SMS/MMS programs, including for shipment notifications and marketing purposes. We will only use mobile telephone information you provide through the Services to transmit your mobile messages and respond to you, if necessary. This includes, but is not limited to, sharing information with platform providers, phone companies, and other vendors who assist us in the delivery of mobile messages.

We may combine information you give us with other information from PUMA sources, transactions and communications. This may include, but is not limited to, information from PUMA retail stores, direct mail, catalogs, promotions, collaborations, events, products and applications, or other PUMA interactions. We may also combine that information with data that is publicly available and data from third parties. To the extent non-Service information is combined with Personal Information collected via the Services, we will treat it as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.

COOKIES AND DATA TECHNOLOGIES

We, our service providers and third parties may use cookies and other Data Technologies, including but not limited to tracking pixels, to gather information about your visits on our website, mobile apps and other Services so we can enhance your experience. This information may be combined with other information, which will enable us to analyze and better customize your visits.

What Are Cookies? Cookies are data files stored within your browser when you interact with a website. These data files allow the website to recall important information about your visit, help better understand your preferences and improve your overall experience. For example, we use cookies to save products in your shopping cart while you browse our websites and to track the effectiveness of our marketing and advertising campaigns. Similarly, a tracking pixel or web beacon is a technology that can recognize specific cookies and convey information about that browser. We, and third parties, may also use technologies, such as our own and third party cookies, to provide you with personalized online display advertising tailored to your interests. To manage your cookie preferences, click Manage Cookies.

There are generally three categories of cookies used on the Services:

  • Functional: These cookies are required for basic functionality and are therefore always enabled. If you disable them our Services may not function properly. These include cookies that allow you to be remembered as you explore and use our Services within a single session or, if you request, from session to session. They help make the shopping cart and checkout process possible as well as assist in security issues and conforming to regulations.
  • Performance and Analytics: These cookies allow us to improve the Services' functionality by tracking usage. In some cases, these cookies improve the speed with which we can process your request and allow us to remember Services preferences you have selected. These cookies also help us learn things like what pages are most attractive to all of our visitors and what promotions visitors like to see, and to gauge the success of our advertising campaigns. Refusing these cookies will limit recommendations and customizations while using the Services.
  • Social media and Advertising: Social media cookies offer the possibility to connect you to your social networks and share content from the Services through social media. Advertising cookies collect information to help better tailor advertising to your interests. In some cases, these cookies involve the processing of your Personal Information. Refusing these cookies may result in seeing advertising that is not as relevant to you or you not being able to link effectively with Facebook, Twitter, or other social networks and/or not allowing you to share content on social media.

Your browser can also help you manage cookies. Most, but not all, browsers accept cookies automatically. You may be able to set your browser to reject and/or delete cookies. You may limit or turn off cookies and other collection tools by adjusting your browner settings. If you turn off certain collection tools, you may not have access to many features that make your experience more efficient and some of our services and features may not function properly. We recommend that you leave cookies “turned on” so we can offer you a better shopping experience on our sites.

Some information about your use of the Services and certain other online services may be collected using Data Technologies across time and services and used by PUMA and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Service and certain other online services. Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many online services, PUMA currently does not alter our practices when we receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” you can visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com, but we are not responsible for the completeness or accuracy of this third party information. Some third parties may, however, offer you choices regarding their Tracking Technologies. PUMA is not responsible for the completeness or accuracy of this tool or third-party notices or mechanisms. For specific information on some of the choice options offered by third party analytics and advertising providers, see below. We may, from time-to-time, and in certain jurisdictions, offer or point you to tools that allow you to exercise certain preferences regarding cookies and other Data Technologies associated with the Services, but such tools rely on third parties and third party information so we do not guaranty that the tools will provide complete and accurate information or be completely effective.

Some advertising and technology partners may also collect Personal Information when you use the Services. For example, we may work with other companies, such as Google, who use tracking technologies to analyze how users use the Services and to serve advertisements on our behalf across the Internet. For more information about how data is collected and processed in connection with the Google Analytics service and how to opt out, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. To learn more about data Google collects and how your data may be used, and to optout of certain Google browser Interest-Based Advertising, please visit http://www.google.com/settings/ads.

Some third party Data Technology operators that may be associated with our Services may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more about how you can exercise certain choices regarding Interest-based Advertising, including use of Cross-device Data for serving ads, visit: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ (U.S.), http://youradchoices.ca/choices (Canada), and http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices for information on the DAA’s opt-out program specifically for mobile apps (including use of precise location for third party ads). Some of these companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). To learn more about the NAI and your opt-out options for their members, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of Interest-based Advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. Opting out only means that those selected members should no longer deliver certain Interest-based Advertising to you but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g. from other ad networks). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit these opt-out webpages, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different device or web browser or use a non-browser-based method of access (e.g. mobile app), your NAI / DAA browser-based opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective. PUMA supports the ad industry’s Self-regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising and expects that ad networks we directly engage to serve you interest-based advertising will do so as well, though we cannot guaranty their compliance.

USE OF INFORMATION

We may use your information subject to this Privacy Policy, including information that is defined as personal information, personally identifiable information or personal data under applicable laws (“Personal Information”) except as restricted by applicable law, including without limitation for:

  • Enhancing, personalizing and customizing user experiences, such as placing an order and other activities.
  • Communicating with you about your purchase, account information or customer service.
  • Analyzing user behavior and trends to better understand our customers and gain consumer insights.
  • Providing and conducting marketing and promotions.
  • Communicating with you about our products, services and events, and for other promotional purposes.
  • Administering contests, promotions, events, surveys or other features.

  • Preventing and addressing fraud, breach of policies or terms, and threats or harm.
  • Fulfilling other purposes disclosed at the time you provide Personal Information or otherwise where we are legally permitted or are required to do so.

We only send you text communications or promotional e-mails if you have opted to receive PUMA e-mails and/or SMS messages. If you no longer want to receive SMS messages, or promotional emails, or want to delete/update your Personal Information, please visit the My Account page.

PROTECTION OF INFORMATION

PUMA uses technical and organizational measures designed to protect your Personal Information against unauthorized access, theft, and loss. While PUMA strives to protect its user's Personal Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee 100% the security or confidentiality of any information that you provide to us or that is otherwise disclosed by you online. We recommend that you take additional measures to protect yourself and your information, such as installing anti-virus software, closing browsers after use, keeping confidential your log-in credentials and passwords. We will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your Personal Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

CHILDRENS' PRIVACY

We do not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Information online from children under 13 and we do not intentionally or specifically target children under 13 in our marketing materials or other advertising.

SHARING INFORMATION

Subject to applicable law, this Privacy Policy and any representations made by us in writing at the time of collection, we may share your information except as restricted by applicable law. For instance, we may share your information, including Personal Information, with our affiliates and subsidiaries, as well as to our partners, vendors, distributors, and suppliers, some of which may be outside the United States. We may transfer your information to certain service providers in order to conduct our business operations. For example, we may share your information with service providers who may provide the following services on our behalf: web hosting, credit card processing, shipping and order fulfillment, data management, email distribution, marketing, market research, analytics, customer service, website utilization, information analysis, and promotions management. We may also share some of your account details (such as your name, email address, password and date of birth) with our cloud service providers for the purposes of identification and authentication, so you can conveniently access your account. We may also share your information as is necessary to complete a transaction or provide a product, service, or feature that you have requested. These service providers will only use your information for the purpose of carrying out the services provided to PUMA. We may disclose information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, when required by law, to enforce our policies, or to protect our or others' rights, property or safety. We may share information to prevent illegal uses of PUMA's products and services or violations of the Terms & Conditions, or applicable additional terms, or to defend ourselves against third party claims. We may also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation.

Your information may be transferred to a third party as a part of our business assets in a sale of a part or all of PUMA, or in connection with a merger, financing or other corporate transaction.

You may also choose to share certain information publicly (e.g., when you post UGC) or with specific third parties (e.g., when you interact with third party Data Technologies or other services (e.g., social media plug-ins, links to other sites, etc.). When you use certain services, you agree to publicly share a basic amount of information, which may include your username, city location, and profile picture in accordance with the terms of those services. In order to participate in certain features, you may have to adjust your privacy settings and share additional information. You may also choose to share your activity on other platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Please read the privacy policies of those platforms, because your PUMA activity published on those platforms will no longer be governed by this Privacy Policy.

DATA TRANSFER

Our digital operations are conducted, in whole or in part, in the United States and our services are intended for U.S. users. Regardless of where you live, you consent to have your information, including Personal Information, transferred, processed and stored in the United States, and other jurisdictions, and allow PUMA to collect and process your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

THIRD PARTIES

The Services may include or link to third-party websites, apps, locations, platforms, code (e.g., plug-ins, application programming interfaces (“API”), and software development kits (“SDKs”)) or other third-party services. These third-party services may use their own cookies, web beacons, and other Data Technologies to independently collect information about you and may solicit Personally Identifiable Information from you.

Certain functionalities on the Service permit interactions that you initiate between the Service and certain third-party services, such as third party social networks (“Social Features”). Examples of Social Features include: enabling you to send content such as contacts and photos between the Service and a third-party service; “liking” or “sharing” PUMA content; logging in to the Service using your third-party service account (e.g., using Facebook Connect to sign-in to the Service); and to otherwise connect the Service to a third-party service (e.g., to pull or push information to or from the Service). If you use Social Features, and potentially other third-party services, information you post or provide access to may be publicly displayed on the Service or by the third-party service that you use. Similarly, if you post information on a third-party service that references the Service (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with PUMA in a tweet or status update), your post may be used on or in connection with the Service or otherwise by PUMA. Also, both we and the third party may have access to certain information about you and your use of the Service and any third-party service.

We may engage and work with service providers and other third parties to serve advertisements on the Service and/or on other online services. Some of these ads may be tailored to your interest based on your browsing of the Service and elsewhere on the Internet, which may include use of precise location and/or cross-device data, sometimes referred to as “interest-based advertising” and “online behavioral advertising” (“interest-based advertising”), which may include sending you an ad on another online service after you have left the Service (i.e., “retargeting”). See Cookies for more information on your choices regarding certain interest-based advertising and Data Technologies.

PUMA is not responsible for, and makes no representations regarding, the policies or business practices of any third parties, including, without limitation, analytics service providers and third-party services associated with the Services. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with and consult their privacy policies and terms of use.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

California law provides consumers (that are California residents) with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. This California Privacy Rights Notice (“CA Notice”) provides additional notices to California consumers, describes their rights under California law and explains how to exercise those rights. In the event of a conflict between any other PUMA policy, statement or notice and this Notice, this Notice will prevail as to California consumers and their rights under the California law.

This Notice does not include Personal Information of our job applicants, current or prior employees or independent contracts (“personnel”) collected in connection with such status, Personal Information collected form our business contacts collected in such capacity or Personal Information exempt or excluded under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Terms defined in the CCPA that are used in this Notice will have the meaning ascribed to them in the CCPA.

The description of our data practices in this Notice, as required by the CCPA, covers only the 12 months preceding the effective date of this Notice and will be updated at least annually. Our practices after the effective date may differ, however, if materially different from this Notice we will provide notice of the current practices, which may include reference to our general privacy policy or other applicable privacy notices, which will reflect current practices.

Right to Deletion

If you are a consumer who resides in California you have the right to request that we delete any of your Personal Information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, as explained below, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal Information, unless an exception applies. If an exception applies, we will inform you of that and limit retention and use to the permitted purpose.

Right to Opt Out of Sale

If you are a customer who resides in California, you also have the right to opt out of the “sale” of your Personal Information. While we do not sell (as “sell” is traditionally defined) your Personal Information to third parties, we do share information with third parties for advertising purposes which may be considered a “sale” of “personal information” under California law. California residents may opt out of the “sale” of personal information by submitting a Do Not Sell My Personal Information request. Please note that for multiple browsers and devices, you must opt out on each browser or device, and if you delete your browser cookies you must opt out again. We do not knowingly sell Personal Information of consumers under the age of 16.

Exercising Right to Know (Access and Portability) Do Not Sell and Deletion Rights

To exercise the right to know (access and portability), do not sell and/or deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

PUMA
Attn: Privacy Officer
455 Grand Union Boulevard
Somerville MA, USA 02145

You may also obtain information on how to make, and may submit, a request by asking a manager at any of our California retail locations.

To protect your privacy and comply with the CCPA, we will need to verify your request (i.e., verify you). The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information, and in the cases more sensitive or important Personal Information we require that be done to a high degree of certainty. We do this in a number of ways depending upon how we have interacted with you in the past, as more fully described in the next section. For security purposes, we will not collect sensitive Personal Information as part of the verification process. We use Personal Information you provide during verification for other purposes other than to keep a record of your request.
  • Describe your request with enough detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

Verifying and Fulfilling Requests

We may not be able to fully respond to your right to know or deletion requests if we cannot verify your identity consistent with the CCPA’s standards for verification and security and confirm that the Personal Information relates to you. Once we receive your request, we are required to verify that you are the person that is the subject of the request, or an authorized agent property acting on behalf of a specific consumer. How we do this will depend on the content of the consumer relationship with us and the sensitivity of the Personal Information. Typically this consists of matching identifying information provided by you with the information we have about you in our records. Upon making a request, you will be asked to provide your name, e-mail address, shipping address and telephone number. Providing accurate information that matches our records is necessary so that we can locate the correct information within our systems and among our service providers. To verify your request, we may ask you to submit evidence beyond your basic personal information in order to prove your identity, especially if you seek to delete Personal Information or obtain copies of it. You may submit this information simultaneously with your initial request (by mail or by using our interactive web form) or after your request (as a second step). For requests of specific pieces of sensitive personal information about a consumer, we will verify your identity to a reasonably high degree of certainty; whereas for requests to know the categories of personal information collected and used about a consumer, we will verify your identity to a reasonable degree of certainty. We may give you options, such as (i) submitting a signed statement and a redacted copy of identifying information (such as a government-issued ID), or (ii) verifying your identity with a third party verification company that we hire for this purpose. If we ask you to verify your identity, you must promptly cooperate with our efforts so that we can fulfill your request. If you do not comply, your request cannot be fulfilled; and if you delay in complying, the fulfillment of your request is likely to be delayed, and may be denied, as a result. If we cannot verify your identity, we will not be able to fully respond to your request. However, if we cannot verify you sufficiently to provide specific pieces, we will treat the request as a categories request, and if we cannot reasonably verify you for that, we will refer you to this Notice for our general practices. If we cannot sufficiently verify you as necessary for a deletion request, we will give you the opportunity to opt-out of sale.

If you are a California resident, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate your request within 45 days. We may, however, extend the timeframe to total of 90 days, if an extension is reasonably necessary. We reserve the right to deny any request, in whole or in part, to the extent permitted by applicable law, but will explain the basis for that in our response to you. We will fulfill a right to know request from an individual up to two times in any twelve-month period. As permitted by CCPA, if a request is unduly burdensome or unfounded, we may reject it or condition further efforts on payment of reasonable costs. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, or that we may refuse it, we will give you notice explaining why we made that decision. You will be provided a cost estimate and the opportunity to accept such fees before we will charge you for responding to your request. Some Personal Information we maintain about consumers is not sufficiently associated with enough Personal Information about the consumer for us to be able to verify that it is a particular consumer’s Personal Information when a consumer request that requires verification pursuant to the CCPA’s verification standards is made (e.g., clickstream data tied only to a pseudonymous browser ID). Accordingly, we do not include that PI in response to those requests.

Consistent with the CCPA and our interest in the security of your Personal Information, we will not deliver to you your driver’s license number or other government-issued id number, financial account number, any health or medical identification number, an account password, security questions or answers, or unique biometric data generated from measurements or technical analysis of human characteristics in response to a CCPA request; however, you may be able to access some of this information yourself through your account if you have an active account with us.

Right to Nondiscrimination

You have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment for the exercise of the foregoing rights under California law, unless the differential treatment is reasonably related to the value of the applicable Personal Information.

Financial Incentives

We offer various financial incentives that might qualify as a “financial incentive” program under the CCPA. For example, we may provide discounts, coupons and other benefits for customers who sign up to receive our marketing emails or join our loyalty program. When you participate in a financial incentive, we may collect Personal Information from you, such as identifiers such as your name and email address and commercial information such as your purchase history. Participation in financial incentive program is optional for California consumers and any terms and conditions will be made available at the point of opt-in. You can opt into a financial incentive by following the sign-up or participation instructions provided, and you have the ability to opt-out of the financial incentive, or our subsequent use of your Personal Information in connection with a financial incentive, at any time by contacting us as set out above, or as otherwise described in program terms, or by making a deletion request. We equate the value of Personal Information collected in connection with a financial incentive program to our cost of operating the program (excluding the value of the benefits provided, many of which are intangible and vary from time-to-time and person-to-person), and deem the value of the benefits as reasonably related to the value of Personal Information collected based on the voluntary nature of program participation. If you do not believe that the value you receive is reasonably related to the value of your applicable Personal Information, do not participate.

Requests from Authorized Agents

California law permits an authorized agent to exercise any of the above California privacy rights on an individual’s behalf, subject to certain requirements. If you submit a request, other than opt-out of sale, on behalf of a consumer other than yourself, you will be required to demonstrate your legal authority to act on behalf of that person, and we may contact you and/or the consumer for verification purposes as permitted by the CCPA. As permitted by CCPA, we may require that you provide information necessary to verify the identity of the person who is the subject of the request, or that such person verify his/her own identity directly with us before we fully respond to your request as an authorized agent. We reserve the right to deny requests, including an opt-out of sale request, where we reasonably suspect that the request is fraudulent. For the protection of our customers, we must receive all information requested and must verify an agent’s legal authority to our satisfaction consistent with what the CCPA requires or permits before we can fulfill a request by an authorized agent.
