Privacy Policy

Last modified: June 1, 2009

President Tuxedo respects your privacy. Consistent with our commitment to providing you a satisfying and helpful shopping experience, we have found that collecting Personal Information (defined below) through www.presidenttuxedo.com (the “Site”), affiliate sites and our stores, including but not limited to President Tuxedo (referred to in this Privacy Policy as the “Stores”), helps us better understand the products and services most helpful to you. Our Privacy Policy describes the types of information we gather online and in our Stores and how we use this information. Please read this information carefully.

By accessing the Site and shopping in our Stores, you agree to be bound by the Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time. Accordingly, you should check the date of this Policy (which appears at the top of this page) and review any changes since the last version. If at any time you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use this Site and refrain from purchasing from us.

Use of Information Collected by Us

President Tuxedo may collect two types of information about users: “Personal Information” (such as name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number and the items you purchase) and “Aggregate Information” (such as information about how many users log on to our Site on a daily basis or frequency of customer visits to President Tuxedo Stores).
We use customer information in an effort to improve your shopping experience and to communicate with you about our products, services, promotions and contests. We may also use this information to make offers to you, to help us target specific products and services to you, and to help us develop and improve our Site and Stores and tailor our Sites and Stores to your interests.

Personal Information Collected Online by PresidentTuxedo.com and at Our Stores

Personal Information is collected online by us or our service providers (e.g., such as EMG) on our behalf when users voluntarily register with Presidenttuxedo.com to purchase items, receive electronic newsletters, use community and communication services, answer surveys and enter contests and other promotional opportunities provided on Presidenttuxedo.com, when users make a purchase, and when users utilize the “Email to a Friend” feature. We also maintain a record of your product interests and purchases online. We may receive personal usage and demographic information from our Stores and from third parties we work with.

In our Stores, Personal Information is collected from you in a number of ways, including the following:

When you purchase products from our Stores, we may collect your name, address, email address, telephone number(s) and credit card information (with the expiration date). In addition, we collect transaction information related to your purchase (such as what you bought, the price you paid, the payment method you used and if the product was on sale).

When you fill out a tailoring order or instruct us to mail product to another location, we may collect your name, address, email address, telephone number and credit card information.

When you fill out any in-store promotional surveys, we may gather certain Personal Information, such as your opinions on specific products and/or services, in addition to identifying information, such as your name, address, telephone number(s), email address(es), income and employment status.

Aggregate Information Collected Online by PresidentTuxedo.com and at Our Stores

Aggregate Information is non-personally identifiable/anonymous information about you, such as age, gender, types of products purchased, frequency of Store visits, Site pages you access most frequently or search terms you enter. Aggregate Information is used in a collective manner, and no single person can be identified by that compiled information. For example, the number of people who shopped at Presidenttuxedo.com during a specific time period or the number of people who shopped at our Stores who are 39 years of age is Aggregate Information that does not personally identify a specific user. Both Presidenttuxedo.com and our Stores collect Aggregate Information.

Order-related and Promotional email

You agree that Presidenttuxedo.com is authorized to transmit email to you for the purpose of informing you about your particular transaction.
In addition, Presidenttuxedo.com and its affiliates may offer electronic newsletters and promotional emails to those who have agreed to receive emails during registration or directly from our email sign-up form. Unsubscribe instructions are included in each promotional email.

Sharing Information with Third Parties

Presidenttuxedo.com does not share, sell or trade with third parties your Personal Information gathered online, such as email addresses, Personal Information collected as part of an online survey or other specific details about you, except with your consent or as described in this Privacy Policy. Presidenttuxedo.com does not contribute to or participate in cooperative databases, which give other companies access to such Personal Information.
The Personal Information and Aggregate Information collected at our Stores may be shared with Presidenttuxedo.com as well as reputable third-party organizations to contact consumers for marketing and promotional purposes. Third party contacts to our customers may be initiated only by postal mail. Except as described in this Privacy Policy, our Stores will not share your telephone number or e-mail address. In addition, in the event that you apply for a credit card account, our Stores may share the Personal Information we have collected with credit card companies and credit agencies.
Presidenttuxedo.com, affiliate sites, and our Stores may divulge Personal Information if such action is required for President Tuxedo or any of our service providers or consultants to comply with any valid legal process, such as a subpoena, search warrant, statute or court order, or any valid administrative request from a law enforcement agency. In addition, we may divulge Personal Information if we or any of our service providers or consultants believes that such disclosure is necessary to address any unlawful acts or acts that may endanger the health or safety of another customer or of the general public.

Service Providers, Consultants and Affiliates

We may share Personal Information and Aggregate Information with our service providers, consultants and affiliates for our internal business purposes.

The type of information we collect includes products viewed and/or purchased, your location (state/zip code if you placed an order) and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web. The computers, which deliver the Web pages to you, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from our Site, our servers log your IP address. By supplementing our records, this information helps us learn things like what pages are most attractive to our visitors, which of our products most interest our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see.

Use of Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that Web sites, when you visit them, often store on your hard drive. A cookie may contain information (such as unique user ID), which is used to track the pages of the sites you’ve visited. Presidenttuxedo.com uses cookies to; preserve the contents of your shopping bag between your visits. Presidenttuxedo.com also uses cookies to measure activity on our Site, which allows us to determine which areas and features of our Site are most popular. This information allows us to make improvements and updates to enhance your Presidenttuxedo.com experience. You can set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you turn off cookies or refuse them, though, you will not be able to make a purchase from the Site, nor will we be able to recognize you as a registered user to allow you access to your account information.

To enable or disable cookies on your browser, please consult your browser documentation or contact your software provider.

Use of Pixel Tags/Clear GIFs/Web Beacons

A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of our Site but not on your computer. When you access these pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of that visit. They usually work in conjunction with cookies, registering when a particular computer visits a particular page. If you turn off cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous website visit.

Notice to P3P Users

The Platform for Privacy Preferences Project (“P3P”) is a standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (“W3C”) that provides an automated, machine-readable mechanism for understanding the use of your Personal Information by the Web sites you visit. P3P uses a standardized set of multiple choice questions covering the major elements of a Web site’s privacy policy to provide a cross-section of how the particular Web site handles the personally identifiable information of its users. P3P-enabled browsers can automatically read this set of preferences made available by P3P-enabled Web sites and compare this information to the user’s own set of privacy preferences. For example, Internet Explorer 7.0 requires third parties to set cookies to deliver P3P “compact” cookie policies with their cookies, and other browsers may use this mechanism soon. To enhance your online experience further, the Site is now P3P enabled. For more information on the W3C and P3P, please visit http://www.w3.org/P3P/. Given certain limitations in the parameters chosen by W3C, however, the P3P mechanisms may not describe Presidenttuxedo.com’s privacy practices as accurately as this Privacy Policy. Accordingly, where discrepancies exist between this Privacy Policy and the P3P “compact” policies, this Privacy Policy shall control.

Security and SSL

Protecting your order information is a priority for us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your online order information. To check the security of your connection, look at the lower right-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), then SSL is active and the server is secure. You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the Site address will change from “http” to “https.” Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don’t permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you won’t be able to connect to the server and therefore won’t be able to place an order through a secure connection. If you cannot access the secure server for any reason, please print our shopping page and place your order by phone at 800-837-TUXS.
