Gathering and Sharing of Information, Links to External and Co-Branded Websites
We monitor traffic patterns on the Site for aggregate use to analyze trends and administer the Site. This helps us to improve its layout and design and to permit Site personalization and streamlining to create the best shopping experience we can for our users.
Where appropriate, we share aggregated statistical information with our business partners. These statistics include no personally identifying information.
We use a credit card processing company to bill purchasers of goods and services from the Site, and depending upon the goods and services being ordered and where they are being shipped, we may also use outside suppliers and/or delivery companies to assist.
Our Site also contains links to external Internet sites as well as co-branded sites, which may be operated by an external party and they may have privacy practices that differ from those here.A co-branded site is a website, usually operated by a third-party, and displaying that third-party's name along with the Office Depot name and logo. Such co-branded sites offer Office Depot approved goods or services to our users.
Strong precautions are taken to protect the information of the users of our Site. When users submit sensitive information via the Site, that information is protected both online and offline.
We take credit card information security seriously and use a variety of technical solutions to make shopping safe at our Site. Furthermore, your information is encrypted and is protected utilizing the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user- information off-line. All of the information of our Site's users, including the sensitive information mentioned above, is maintained in a restricted section in our database.
