E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from the Website if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our user list to lists received from other companies, to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our user.

DOES DESIGNERS CHOICE USE THE INFORMATION IT RECEIVES?
Information about our user is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share user’s information only as described below.
Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. They have access to information needed to perform their functions but are not authorized to use it for other purposes.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, our company may change in composition due to selling parts of our company or acquiring new companies. In such transactions, users’ information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Policy (unless, of course, the users consent otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that Designers Choice, or substantially all its assets are acquired, users’ information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
