6. How Is Your Data Kept
We use secure server technology to ensure this information is protected. Any personal information you provide to us is safely stored on secure servers.
We also use reputable third-party service providers who perform services on our behalf.

Where these service providers have access to your information, we require them to maintain your information in the strictest confidence and we do not permit them to use it in any way other than to help us provide you with better service.
Our IT department uses encryption to safeguard your personal information at all times. This encryption makes it virtually impossible for unauthorized parties to read any information that you send us.
As long as you keep shopping with us, we keep a record of our friendships so far, from your first pair of our shoes to that classic belt you wear all the time. This record helps us answer any questions about your order history – or take you on a stroll down memory lane. And we know when we’re not wanted. If you haven’t shopped with us for ten years, we’ll come to the sad conclusion that we may have lost you, and delete your data from all our systems. Or you can ask us at any time – via any of the methods listed in our Contact Us section – to erase it. (We will, pronto.)
We might also need to keep your data for important legal or audit purposes, to resolve disputes, and to prevent fraud and abuse. In these situations, we may need to hold some of your data after you have closed your account.
