Those activities include things like designing name and address
stamps or customizing products, making a purchase, or contacting

Information collected from you
www.newfossil.com collects some information
about you using technology, so it may not be readily apparent to
you that it is being collected. For instance, when you come to our
site your IP address is collected so that we know where to send
information you are requesting. An IP address is often associated
with the place from which you enter the Internet like your ISP,
your company or your university. This information is not personally
identifiable. We use information collected through technology to
make our site more interesting and useful to you. We normally don't
combine this type of information with personally identifiable information.
However, we will combine this information with personally identifiable
information to identify a user in order to enforce compliance with
our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site,
guests or others.
2. What are Cookies and how does

You can choose to have your computer
warn you each time a cookie is being sent or you can choose to turn

not function properly.
3. How does www.newfossil.com use

However, if there is a value for our guests we will share your information
or send you messages on behalf of another company as described below.
We may also share information for security reasons.
Companies that provide services
Sometimes we will hire another company
to provide a service - like a shipping company that delivers a package.
In those instances, we need to share your information with them.
They are only allowed to use the information to deliver the product
Companies offering promotions,

On occasion, we offer promotions - like
sweepstakes or contests -- in conjunction with another sponsor.
We will share your information with the sponsors if they need it

sponsors so that they can send you other special promotions they
offer but only if you give us your permission to do so and we will
only share it with that specific sponsor.

The importance of security for all personally
identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost
concern to us. www.newfossil.com takes steps to protect all visitors'
information. When you provide credit card information, we use secure
socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect it. Any
credit card information used for an order is always encrypted when
it is transmitted and used. It is stored and protected with strong
disk-level security measures. There are also some things that you can do to help protect
the security of your information as well. For instance, we never
give out your password - as this is what is used to access all of
your account information. Also, remember to sign out of your account

that other people using the same computer won't have access to your
