Other Uses of Information

We may use the personal information you provide on our site for internal purposes. These purposes include market research, administration of our websites and compliance with our legal obligations, policies and procedures.

Information We Collect By Automated Means

When you visit our website, we collect certain information by automated means, using technologies such as cookies, Web server logs and Web beacons.

Cookies are small text files that websites send to your computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings in your browser. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies and how to restrict or disable certain cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to take the survey or use other features of our website.

In conjunction with the gathering of information through cookies, our Web servers may log information such as your operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located. The Web server logs also record the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. An IP address is a unique identifier that devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet.

To control which Web servers collect information by automated means, we may place tags on our Web pages called “Web beacons,” which are small files that link Web pages to particular servers.

We use the information we collect through automated means for system administration purposes, such as to determine whether you’ve visited us before or are new to the site, to prevent fraud and for compliance with our legal obligations, policies and procedures.

Information We Share

We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information about www.MarshallsFeedback.com users, except as described here. We may share the information you provide with TJX Businesses (which are affiliates owned by TJX, such as T.J.Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods, AJWright, T.K.Maxx, Winners, HomeSense, and StyleSense) to communicate with you or for internal purposes.

We also may share the information you provide with third parties who perform services for us or on our behalf. For example, we may use third parties to host our site, operate certain of its features, send e-mails, print or send mailings, run our sweepstakes, contests or other promotions, conduct customer research and manage and analyze data and our advertising effectiveness. We do not authorize our third party service providers to use or disclose your personal information for their own or any other unaffiliated company’s marketing purposes. These service providers are only authorized to process the data on our behalf and in accordance with local law requirements.

On occasion, we may also be required to disclose your information as required by law, pursuant to lawful requests such as subpoenas, court or agency orders, or when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect our rights or the rights of others, to avert harm to persons or property, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal information you have provided through www.MarshallsFeedback.com in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice.

Links to Other Sites

We may provide links to other websites for your convenience or information. These sites may operate independently from www.MarshallsFeedback.com and may have their own privacy statements in place that we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. To the extent any linked websites you visit are unrelated to TJX, we are not responsible for their content or any use of the sites.

How We Protect Personal Information

We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards for www.MarshallsFeedback.com to protect against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, use, and other unlawful forms of processing of the personal information you provide.
