What Information We Collect and Why

Our System uses various forms for customers and other visitors to request information and to order products and samples. As described below, we collect personal and project-related information from customers and other visitors primarily so that we may process their orders and requests, but also so that we may enhance our services to our System visitors, make each visit as pleasant and helpful as possible, and track trends and statistics. During the checkout process on our website, we ask for certain personal information (such as name, address, e-mail, telephone number and project information) which is necessary to process and ship orders or respond to requests. Personal information may be transmitted to contracted third parties for the purpose of shipping an order, sample or other items. We may also share or disclose information in order to conform to or comply with legal requirements, to protect the rights of Interface or to act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Interface personnel or the public.


The System may further collect non-personally identifiable information, such as type of browser, operating system, domain name, or IP address. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you visit pages on our System, our servers may log your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information. Your IP Address is used to gather broad demographic information only. A User Transaction ID may be created when you enter the System. This ID is used to keep track of your order and other requests.


Interface may also give users the opportunity to answer questions which assist us in our marketing efforts. It is optional for customers to answer marketing questions. However, we encourage our customers to answer these questions so we can provide a more personalized experience on our System.

Registration (Optional)

To most effectively use the System, a customer can complete our registration process. During registration, we may ask a customer to select unique identifiers (such as username and password) and provide contact information (such as name, email address, daytime phone numbers and shipping address). We may also ask registered customers if they would like to receive via e-mail special announcements or offers from us. Customers may opt-out of receiving such e-mail (see the choice/opt-out section below). Business partners and professional visitors requesting access to specialized content areas may be required to provide identifying information for verification purposes.
Cookies

Cookies are routinely used by most, if not all, E-commerce merchants, including Interface. Cookies are small blocks of text which are sent to your browser from a website. We use 'persistent' and 'non-persistent' cookies on our System to provide you with the best presentation of the information currently available. 'Persistent' cookies store text, which is available to us when you return to our System. 'Non-persistent' cookies are temporary information, which is eliminated once you close your Internet browser and/or shut down your computer. Only our System has access to the information in our cookies. This information about the user enables us to track and personalize the System to enhance your experience. For instance, by setting a cookie on our Site, we can provide you with storage of items in your shopping cart or save the contents of projects created with our Tile Configurator between visits.


These cookies can in no way be used by us or anyone else to get data from your hard drive, obtain your e-mail address or access sensitive information about you as an individual. Cookies must meet strict specifications to ensure that they are not used to compromise security.

If a user rejects cookies, the user may still use our System although we will be unable to provide the user with the personalized experience we can offer using the cookie data. If you have any questions about our use of cookies, please send an e-mail to feedback@interface.com or telephone Customer Service at 1-800-637-6032.

Security

Interface has security measures in place to provide protection against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Strong precautions are taken to protect the information of the users of our Systems.


Your information is encrypted and is protected utilizing the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption software. While on a secure page, most web browsers will indicate the encrypted nature of your data in some readily identifiable fashion (e.g., the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becoming locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing').
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user information offline. All of the information of our System’s users, including the sensitive information mentioned above, is maintained in a restricted section in our offices. Only those of our employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our account or customer service representatives) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, our employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of passwords, which may be issued to you and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Interface cannot warrant or ensure the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

If you have any questions about the security at our System, you can send an e-mail to feedback@interface.com or telephone Customer Service at 1-800-637-6032.
