We may also share your name and contact information with our affiliates and third parties so that they may contact you by email, postal mail, or phone regarding products, services, promotions, special events, or other subjects that we think might appeal to your interests. Please see the “privacy preferences” section below if you wish to restrict the sharing of your personal information for this purpose.
If you request that your Bose purchase be shipped to someone other than yourself (such as a gift recipient), we may also share the recipient’s personal and other information with our affiliates and third parties as described above. Like you, these recipients may restrict the sharing of their personal information for purposes of being contacted by email, postal mail or phone regarding products, services, promotions, special events and other subjects that we think might appeal to their interests. Please see Privacy Preferences below. By submitting information about someone other than yourself, you represent that you are entitled to provide us with that person’s information for the purposes identified in this Policy.
We share de-identified and aggregated information about our customers and website visitors with third parties, including advertisers. This information does not, however, identify you or any other individual.
Certain features of our websites make it possible for you to share comments or feedback directly with Bose or publicly with all other users of the Bose websites. Any information that you submit through such features is not confidential, and Bose may use it for any purpose (including in testimonials or other Bose marketing materials). For example, if you submit a product review on one of our websites, we may display your review (along with your screen name) on other Bose websites and on third-party websites. We may partner with service providers, such as Bazaarvoice, to enable such features. Please see the Bose.com terms and conditions for more details. In addition, any information that you post openly will be available to the public at large and potentially accessible through third-party search engines. Such information can be read, collected and/or used by other users, and it could be used to send you unsolicited messages if you disclose personal information. Accordingly, please take care when using these website features.
Our websites also enable you to share personal and other information through websites or online services operated by third parties. For example, the Bose.com website contains links to and plugins for third-party websites that incorporate comment and social media features. If you choose to use these features, you may disclose your personal information not just to those third-party websites and services, but also to their users and the public more generally. Bose is not responsible for the content or practices of those websites or services. Instead, the collection, use and disclosure of your personal and non-personal information will be subject to the privacy policies of the third party websites or services.
