We collect personal information about you to deliver the products and services that you request and to help improve your experience.
Automated Information Collection
We receive and store certain types of information when you interact with our website, social media pages, emails, and online advertising.

How do I know my information is secure?
Securing your information is a priority, and we use reasonable security measures to help protect the confidentiality of personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us.
We have appropriate security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you so you can feel comfortable and secure when shopping. Your account information is protected by the password you use to access your online account. Please keep this password confidential. We also use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving your personal information. On the Internet, when you see either a solid key icon or a locked padlock icon at the lower portion of your browser window, this indicates that the site is secured through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Pages requesting personal information should always have one of these icons. If you do not see one of these icons, please contact us to complete your transaction over the phone by calling 1-800-600-0550.
Hard Copy and Electronic Storage Protections
Personal information that is maintained in our offices is subject to physical, administrative, and technical controls as well. Hard copies of sensitive personal information are maintained in locked locations or cabinets with similar restrictions for electronic storage. When disposed of, the information is shredded, destroyed, erased, or otherwise sought to be made unreadable.
We protect payment card information we collect during transactions. We comply with industry standards that require safeguards for handling and securing customer information, including using secure networks; encryption or other protection of cardholder data; physical and technical access controls; monitors and tests of security systems; and information security policies.
Privacy of Children Online

In order to protect the privacy of children, the Uniform City website and social media pages do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without prior parental consent. Please contact us if you believe we may have collected information from your child, and we will work to delete it.
