Information We Collect
Personally Identifiable Information
SSB requests your personally identifiable information when you email us at one of the addresses on our Contact Us page or otherwise sign up to receive communications from SSB or register with the Website. By choosing to provide us with your personally identifiable information you are consenting to the transfer and processing of such information in other countries.
When you browse our Website, you are able to do so anonymously. SSB also collects certain information via this Website that is not personally identifiable.
Like many websites, we use a third party service provider, such as Google Analytics, to collect information about your use of our Website. We track data about traffic to our Website and your visit to and experience on our Website, which information we use to improve our Website structure and content.
We may use session cookies during the time of your visit on the Website that expire when you exit and we also use more permanent cookies that are two year tracking cookies so we can recognize you if you return to the Website.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can disable this function so that your browser will not accept cookies. Please be aware that disabling this function may impact your use and enjoyment of this Website.
In addition, we may take personally identifiable information you provide to us and aggregate it with information of other users and customers such that the data no longer identifies you. We may use and share aggregated information that does not uniquely identify you when it enables us to improve and enrich our services and Website content.
SSB logs IP addresses for systems administration purposes and to track geographic analytics to help us determine where our Website users are located. IP addresses are not used to track a user’s session. This information only helps us determine how often different areas of our site are visited. We do not link an IP address to any information that is personally identifiable. Like most other Websites, SSB’s servers automatically track certain information about your activity on our Website. This information allows us to keep our Website running efficiently. This information includes: the browser you are using; your operating system; your IP address; and the referring URL and all Serta, Simmons and/or Beautyrest URLs you visit.
Other Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may also use web beacons and pixel tags. Web beacons (also called single pixel gifs or web bugs) are Internet tools, such as transparent images on the website or in e-mails that we may send you, that help us to determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed or an e-mail opened. For example, if you ask us to send you information, we may use web beacons to determine how many of the emails we sent were actually opened. A pixel tag is a type of web beacon embedded in an image on the website. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page, including a banner ad, may contain a pixel tag.
Data Use, Sharing And Your Choices
In addition to sharing your information with authorized dealers, we may share your information with our affiliates, licensees, vendors, service providers and agents who assist us in providing our products and services and processing your orders and payments, such as our call center and vendors that provide warehousing and delivery, marketing and advertising, data aggregation, hosting, data verification, statistical analysis and order processing. We require our vendors, service providers and agents to keep your information confidential and they are not permitted to use your information for any purpose other than providing services to SSB.
Links From This Website
SSB employs standard industry measures to help protect the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information, including the use of firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and SSL encryption. We use Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) to encrypt information, including credit card numbers or other customer information, before it travels the Internet. Please understand, despite these efforts, we cannot guarantee the security of your information given the current state of the Internet. We cannot guarantee protection of all electronic information from interception, misappropriation, misuse or alteration. We cannot guarantee that your information will not be disclosed or accessed by accidental circumstances or the unauthorized acts of third parties.
