This policy applies only to customers in Canada.
Our perspective has always been and continues to be about enhancing our customers’ experience before and after each purchase…in stores, online and, ultimately, at home.
getting to know you
When you make a purchase in one of our CB2 stores, join our Gift Registry or answer one of our surveys, you may choose to give us basic information: name, email address, mailing address, postal code, phone and credit card numbers. This allows our sales associates, customer service agents, call centre associates and/or delivery agents to process your transactions more efficiently and, ultimately, to give you a higher calibre of customer service. When you visit our website, we may collect more information: your Internet service provider’s address, the name of the web page directing you, as well as your clicks and activity on our site. This tracking data helps us understand how to make our site more available and user-friendly to our customers.back to top
getting to know what you like
We also gather customer information by taking note of the purchases you make. Think of it as a concierge service where customer preferences are remembered for future consideration. By looking at your purchases in context with marketing demographics or with information from companies whose products and services you may be interested in, it helps our buyers and merchandisers continue to seek out products and designs you may find relevant and unique. Likewise, other companies may also forward to us additional names, mailing addresses and email addresses when we have news or product offerings that may be of special interest to their customers.
In order to serve you better, we may at times contract with other companies to help us process information. For instance, their assistance can help us better fulfill customer orders, manage and enhance customer data, and comply with postal regulations. For your security, these companies are bound by our non-disclosure agreements or contractual arrangements to provide privacy protection for your information, and we require them to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours.back to top
information at your service
The personal information we collect is primarily intended to complete a sale or transaction with you, to deliver products directly to you, to offer better customer service, to improve communications, and to limit the possibility of fraud when we process your returns. The customer information from Euromarket Design brands, Crate and Barrel and CB2, is combined to provide greater security and inform customers of products and services that may interest them. When a purchased item is not immediately available, many of our customers appreciate receiving an email to update the status of their order. We also may need to contact customers by phone, postal mail or email if questions arise regarding their orders.
visit us online, it is also an opportunity for you to provide us with information and feedback that helps us continue to bring new ideas, unique products and a creative approach to shopping for your home.back to top
information secure under lock and key
We take all reasonable steps to protect our customers’ personal information against loss, misuse and alteration. We use encryption technology whenever receiving and transferring your personal information on our site.
When you make a purchase online at our US website, cb2.com, either a solid key or a locked padlock icon will appear in the lower right of your browser window. This icon indicates that your transaction session is secured through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). If one of these icons does not appear, please contact CB2 at 800.606.6252 to complete your purchase.back to top
update your information
Updating your contact information is quick and easy. Just contact us via email or phone, including your previous and current information: full name, mailing address, email address and phone number. Please understand updates may take from six to eight weeks to process from the date of request receipt.back to top
Information sharing can provide a valuable type of consumer networking. By helping to make new connections and introduce new resources to our customers, you may discover new opportunities and products compatible with your interests and needs. With that end in mind, when you purchase an item through our website or by phone, your customer information is shared with other select companies whose products and services you may find useful. For purchases made at a CB2 store, we do not share your customer information.back to top
information sharing is up to you
We appreciate and respect that not all customers may wish to benefit from the opportunity to share information with other select companies. If you do not want CB2 to share your customer information, please immediately contact us via email or phone, or visit our website, and we will remove your name from lists we share with other companies. After the six- to eight-week time period it takes to process your request, your information will no longer be shared. When contacting us, please clearly state your request, including your name, mailing address, email address and phone number.
It is important to understand that with some companies or online partners your information must be shared in order to receive their services. By agreeing to share information, our customers may have the opportunity to participate in a wider array of services and offerings.back to top

reasons we may have to disclose personal information
Though unlikely, there may be times that we are required to disclose your personal information for legal, moral or ethical reasons.
In certain instances, we may disclose your personal information if we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be causing injury to Euromarket Design brands, Crate and Barrel or CB2, or to others. We may also disclose your personal information when we believe the law requires or permits it.
We also may disclose your personal information to a third party in the event of a proposal or actual sale, merger or other acquisition or financing of all or part of any of the entities in the Euromarket Designs, Inc. brands.
Because Euromarket Designs is a US-based company, your personal information may be processed and/or stored in the United States. As such, the United States government, courts, law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your personal information through the laws of the United States.back to top

Please provide your full name, mailing address, email address and phone number. We appreciate your patience as it may take up to six to eight weeks to process your request from the date of receipt.

protecting children’s privacy
