THE TORO COMPANY
Our Commitment to Your Privacy
The Information We Collect
In general, you can browse our Web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We are, however, able to determine your IP address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Web site, to measure the use of our Web site and to improve the content of our Web site. In short we use your IP to gather aggregate demographic information. There are a few places where we give you an opportunity to provide us your personal information. This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on our web site, such as ordering a product, entering a contest or sweepstakes, filling out a survey, sending us feedback, requesting owners and parts manuals or registering your product online, we may ask you to provide certain information. If you choose to share any personal information with us, you will see that the amount and type of personal information we request depend on how you use our Web site. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, we may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal identifying information. When ordering products on our web site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
The Way We Use Information
We may use your personal information for particular purposes such as processing your order or for marketing research and other marketing purposes and for providing you with the latest product and promotional information and other information that might be useful to you. We may use your personal information to deliver information to you and to contact you regarding administrative notices. We may share this information with Toro's affiliates, dealers or other business partners to support your customer relationship with The Toro Company. We must release your credit card information to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment for products purchased on our web site; release your address information to the delivery service to deliver products that you ordered; and provide order information to third parties that help us provide customer service. We will not give or sell this information to any other company for its use in marketing or solicitation.
Updating and Correcting Your Personal Information
You may access and correct your personal information by writing us at:
The Toro Company
Attn: Privacy Compliance/Legal Department
8111 Lyndale Avenue South
Bloomington, MN 55420
Please include your name, address, and/or email address when you contact us.
We encourage you to promptly update your personal information if it changes.
Your Choice on Collection and Use of Your Information
We may, from time to time, send you mailings, either via email or via United States Postal Services (USPS), regarding our products and services. We will send you these mailings only if you indicated that you do not object to these offers. If you have received a communication from us through email and you are not interested in receiving future emails from Toro, please use the unsubscribe link located at the bottom of the email to unsubscribe from future email communications. If you have received communications through standard USPS mail and you no longer wish to receive information from Toro, you can complete our privacy form and your name will be removed from our mailing list.
You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed, however, because we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on our web site. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without some residual information because of backups.
We will encourage our service partners to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your personal information by our service partners is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners, and is not subject to our control. The Toro Web site contains links to other non-Toro Web sites. Toro is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites and you should exercise your best judgement when sharing personal information on these Web sites.
Our Commitment to Security of Your Personal Information
We want you to have continuing trust in The Toro Company and in our products and services and, so, we have put in place reasonable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure your personal information.
In order to most efficiently serve you, credit card transactions and order fulfillment are handled by established third party banking, processing agents and distribution institutions. They receive the information needed to verify and authorize your credit card or other payment information and to process and ship your order.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through our web site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.
By using this Web site you are agreeing to the terms of the Toro Privacy.
