Privacy Policy & Cookie Policy

Protecting your privacy is important to BISSELL Direct. We strive to keep your personal information confidential. By ensuring that you are aware of and understand the BISSELL Direct Customer Privacy Policy, we can provide you with better service. Please take a moment to read the following policy to learn how we handle your personal information.

Why we collect personal information

BISSELL Direct collects and uses your personal information to give you superior customer service, to provide you with convenient access to our products and services, and to make a wider range available to you. In addition, we use your personal information to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, products, special offers, and other information we think you'd like to hear about. This may occasionally include information from other companies about products and services that can add value to your BISSELL Direct products. From time to time, we may also use your personal information to contact you to participate in a market research survey, so that we can gauge customer satisfaction and develop better products.

How we collect personal information

We collect information about you in several ways. For example, we might ask for your contact information when you correspond with us, call us to make a purchase or request service, or participate in an online survey. In addition, when you register to download a leaflet, or ask to be included in an email mailing list, we collect and store the information you provide in a secure database.

When we disclose personal information

Because BISSELL is a global company, your personal information may be shared with other BISSELL business units around the world. They will protect your personal information in accordance with the BISSELL Direct Customer Privacy Policy. At times we may be required by law or legal process to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we believe that disclosure is necessary for the public interest.

How we protect your personal information

BISSELL Direct safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, and make sure you use a secure browser.

Collecting other personal information

When you browse the BISSELL Direct website, you are able to do so anonymously. Generally, we don't collect personal information when you browse - not even your email address. Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using. Like many websites, the BISSELL Direct website uses "cookie" technology. When you first connect to our site, the cookie identifies your browser with a unique, random number. The cookies we use do not reveal any personal information about you, except perhaps your first name so we can welcome you on your next visit. Cookies help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there. We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our site so we can make the site even better.

Our companywide commitment to privacy

To make sure your personal information remains confidential, we communicate these privacy guidelines to every BISSELL Direct employee. BISSELL Direct does not knowingly solicit personal information from children or send them requests for personal information. The BISSELL Direct Customer Privacy Policy is subject to change at any time. We encourage you to review the privacy policy regularly for any changes.
