What information does Drydock collect about me?
Like most websites, every time you visit our Service, we automatically collect information from you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include:
- The type of Internet browser you are using
- The type of computer operating system you are using
- The domain name of your Internet service provider
- The Web page from which you came
- The pages you visit on our website
In general, you can visit many of our Web pages without providing us with any personally identifiable information, such as name, email address, postal address, phone number, gender, and, when necessary, credit card information or other information necessary to process your order or send you special announcements (collectively, "Personal Information"). When you visit the Service, we may track your visit and, as described below in the section concerning "cookies", collect certain data regarding your use of the Service and your activity on the Service, but we will not collect any Personal Information from you unless you choose to provide it to us.
When you make a purchase from Drydock, request to sign up for email, direct mail or SMS Text notices, we collect Personal Information that you have volunteered. Your submission of this Personal Information is entirely voluntary; however, if you elect not to provide this Personal Information, some of the services and/or features available on and/or through the Service may not be available for your use.
We also collect Personal Information when you elect to submit such information to us when you register for "My Account", participate in a contest, event or sweepstakes promotion, fill out a survey, or contact us (for example via email or by selecting "Ask the Expert" from the Service). We may also obtain data through your Internet browser, such as your IP Address, which is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet.
How do you use my Personal Information?
The Personal Information we receive allows us to personalize our product offering and improve your online shopping experience, making it more convenient, efficient and enjoyable. We may use the Personal Information that you submit to us through the Service to:
- Customize your communications and shopping experience
- Process your purchase, confirm your orders and communicate to you about account information or customer service needs
- Adapt the content and layout of our pages tailored to your needs and so you do not have to enter information more than once
- Notify you about new products and services, special offerings and other promotions
- Coordinate contests, promotions, surveys or other website features
- Improve our business and better respond to your needs
How do you share my information?
We may use your Personal Information in the aggregate for purposes such as reporting and marketing. Such use of Personal Information in the aggregate is not personally identifiable.
On rare occasions, we may disclose Personal Information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, when required by law, to enforce our website policies, or to protect our or others' rights, property, or safety. We may also share Personal Information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation. We do not provide Personal Information to these agencies or companies for marketing or commercial purposes.
What about information that I post to blogs and other public areas of the Service?
How do I know my information is secure?
We have a variety of security measures to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your Personal Information that we have collected from you from the Service. To ensure the information you provide online is secure during transmission, we use leading edge encryption technology and Secure Socket Layers (SSL) while processing any Personal Information you supply.
These controls are certified by VeriSign®, a leading Internet security company. You can review our security certificate using your browser by clicking on the closed lock or solid key image at the bottom of your browser on any of the secure pages on our site. This will display our Service security information.
For security purposes, your full credit card number is not permanently stored within our system. On occasion, we may temporarily store the entire encrypted credit card number when it is necessary to manually contact a credit card company for verification.
What are cookies, Web beacons and pixel tags? How does Drydock use them?
A cookie is a small removable data file stored by your Web browser on your computer. Cookies allow you to browse and place an order on our site and let us make shopping more convenient for you. We place a unique identifier in the cookie and use the cookie to connect your computer with the information we store for you in our database.

- Recognize you when you come back to our website
- Alert you to new areas that may be of interest to you
- Customize Web page content that may be helpful to you
- Cookies do not contain any Personal Information and they do not give us access to your computer.
- You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your Internet browser (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox) settings. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. Each browser is a little different, so check your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookie settings.

Pixel tags and Web beacons are tiny graphic images that allow us or preferred service providers to track non-personally identifiable analytic information about your visit to our Service (such as pages viewed or links clicked). Pixel tags and Web beacons also let us know when you have opened an HTML email from us. Using this information we are able to understand how Visitors and Members use our service. This allows us to learn what pages are most attractive to our Visitors, which parts of the Service are the most interesting and what kind of offers our Members like to see.
We do not knowingly ask for Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 (a "Child"). If a Child submits Personal Information to us and we know that the person providing the information is a Child, we will not use it for any purpose. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete the information as soon as we discover it and we will not disclose it to third parties. If you become aware that a Child has provided Personal Information to our site, please contact us or call our Customer Care Center toll-free at 1-855-329-9476.
While Drydock's policy prohibits children under 13 from registering with the Service, parents should supervise their children's online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address and other Personal Information without parental permission.
How do links from Drydock to other sites affect me?
At times, we may provide links from our Service to other websites operated by third parties. These links are provided only for your convenience and intended to add value to your visit. However, by including these links, even if affiliated with Drydock, we do not have control over these sites, which are independent from Drydock and have separate privacy policies and terms and conditions. When leaving our Service, you need to be aware that our policies no longer apply. Therefore, we will not be responsible for the accuracy, relevancy, availability, reliability, copyright compliance, legality or decency of material contained in third party sites linked to our Service. We strongly encourage you to review the terms and privacy policies of any third-party sites before using their sites.
How can I opt-out/unsubscribe from Drydock email or transmissions to third party service providers?
If for any reason you would like to be taken off the email list that notifies you of upcoming events, offers and sales sent by Drydock or to opt-out of having your Personal Information transmitted to our third party service providers, simply click the unsubscribe link provided at the bottom of every email and every page of our Service. This will direct you to an unsubscribe page where you can remove your name from the email sign-up.
How can I access, update or delete "My Account" information?
Accounts may be created during the ordering process. You can login to or manage your account by clicking the "My Account" link at the top of any page. After logging in, you will be able to modify your contact information, update your billing and shipping addresses, view past orders, or delete your account completely. For security purposes, credit card information is not saved with your account.
