Cookies and Similar Technologies

This site uses cookies, which are small bits of data that a web server transfers to an individual’s computer for certain purposes, such as to report usage and demographic information, which may help us to know more about site users and their interests. Cookies are an industry standard used by most web sites to help facilitate users’ ongoing access to and use of a particular web site, for example, by providing information used to deliver content specific to users’ interests and for administrative purposes such as security, and which may track personal information, such as your name, postal address, telephone and mobile numbers and email address. If you want to remove cookies from your computer at any time, you can delete or automatically decline them using your browser. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. You should note, however, that declining cookies may make it difficult or impossible for you to use portions of the site.

The site may use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) to compile aggregate statistics about site usage and response rates. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the site and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened. We only use the information received from these Pixel Tags in the aggregate for statistical analysis.

Some uses of cookies in connection with the site may be under the control of unaffiliated entities that Masco Cabinetry retains to manage certain programs and fulfill specific visitor requests. Although Masco Cabinetry seeks to require these parties to conform their use of cookies to the uses permitted by this policy, Masco Cabinetry cannot be responsible for third-party uses of cookies.

How We Share Personally Identifiable Information

Masco Cabinetry may share personally identifiable information collected with Affiliated Entities or third parties as described below. You should also be aware that this means that personally identifiable information about you may be transferred to or received by Affiliated Entities or third-parties in the USA, or other countries which may be subject to different privacy regulations than those applicable in the country where you reside.

  • Affiliated Entities. We may share personally identifiable information with our Affiliated Entities worldwide to fulfill the purposes described above. You may access a list of certain Affiliated Entities here http://www.masco.com/our_companies/index.html.

We may use third-party service providers to help us operate our business and this site or to administer activities on our behalf, such as sending emails, hosting dealer locater sites, providing order fulfillment, conducting advertising or customer service, and administering contests or incentive programs. We may share personally identifiable information with these third parties for those business purposes. For instance, if you request a brochure, we may share personally identifiable information about you with fulfillment and management agencies to complete your request.
  • Dealers and Retailers. We may share personally identifiable information with third parties that offer our products for sale. The third-party dealer or retailer may contact you directly by email, phone or postal mail.

Any information including personally identifiable information that you provide on one of these co-branded pages may be collected by both us and the applicable third-party included on the co-branded pages (the “co-branding dealer”), and thus accessible to both us and the co-branding dealer. By submitting information in connection with such co-branded pages, you consent to both us and the applicable co-branding dealer collecting such information from you. Our use and disclosure of information collected by us via co-branded pages will be governed by our applicable Privacy Policy; and any co-branding dealer’s use and disclosure of information collected by such party will be governed by its applicable privacy policy; we encourage you to review each applicable Privacy Policy in connection with your submission of information in connection with co-branded pages; if a co-branding dealer’s privacy policy is not readily available, you are encouraged to contact such party for information to learn more about its privacy policy. We will only be responsible for our compliance with our own Privacy Policy associated with such co-branded pages, and we shall not be responsible in any way for a co-branding dealer's collection, use or disclosure of any information in connection with co-branded pages (or otherwise); for any failure of such party to comply with its applicable privacy policy; or for any failure of such party to adopt a privacy policy or to make available its privacy policy for review.

We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information with anyone other than this without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law.
