WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are files or sets of data that the website or application installs in the browser or device (Smartphone, tablet, connected television) when accessing or during the tour of certain web pages or applications, and they serve to store information about your visit.

"Web beacons" are tiny images that carry a unique identifier and work like cookies. They allow us to count the users who visit certain pages on the Sites and thus help us to determine the effectiveness of promotions and advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted emails, web beacons can identify the sender if the email message was opened. Compared to cookies, which are stored on the hard drive of the user's computer, web beacons are invisibly integrated into web pages. We can also use Adobe or flash cookies. However, since Flash or Adobe web beacons and cookies are similar to simple cookies, we will also request your prior consent before having them.

Why do we use them? When you browse the Sites, some Cookies are installed on your computer. Cookies fulfil various functions, such as allowing you to navigate efficiently through the pages, guaranteeing your preferences and improving your overall browsing experience on the Site. Cookies will also allow us to record information related to your browsing through our Sites in order to be able to track your behaviour pattern.

 

WHAT TYPE OF COOKIES DO WE STORE?

Operating cookies. These Cookies are necessary for the operation of our Sites and will allow you, for example, to access secure areas of our Sites. These cookies do not collect information about you [and can be used for advertising purposes] or to allow your internet browsing history to be saved. This type of Cookies cannot be deactivated.

 

Performance and analytics cookies. They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to understand how visitors behave on our Sites. This helps us measure and improve the functionality of the Sites, for example, by ensuring that users can easily find the content they are looking for.

 

Our Sites use Google Analytics, a third-party cookie. The data collected by Google Analytics will be transmitted and stored by Google on its servers in accordance with its privacy policy. Please visit the Google privacy policy for further details:

 

Functional cookies. They are used to recognize you when you visit our Website again (having done so previously). This enables us to personalize our content and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or zone). These cookies do not collect information to identify you. All information collected by cookies is anonymous and is only used to improve the operation of our Website.

 

Advertising cookies. They are used to allow us to serve you with advertisements that are relevant to your interests. Advertising Cookies on our Sites are mostly provided by third parties (for example, Amazon) and may also allow third parties to deliver relevant advertisements to you on other websites you visit.

 

 

HOW CAN YOU DISABLE OR DELETE COOKIES?

 

Except for Operational Cookies (cookies that are essential for our Sites to function), we will always ask for your prior consent before inserting Cookies. In the following paragraph, we will detail the procedure to follow if you wish to deactivate or unlink from those Cookies that are not essential for the operation of our Sites.

Most browsers can be configured to inform you when you receive a cookie; You may also decide to block cookies from your browser, but if you do, you will not be able to benefit from the personalized user features enjoyed by other visitors to the Sites. You may not be able to continue accessing certain areas of the Sites (for example, if you deactivate the functioning Cookies).

You can disable cookies by changing your browser settings, which allows you to refuse the installation of all or some of the cookies. Disabling a cookie or type of cookie does not remove them from your browser, as removal requires a specific action to be taken. You should, therefore, be aware that if you have deactivated one or more analytical Cookies, we can still use the information collected by the Cookies installed before deactivation unless you request the deletion of such information. However, we will stop using disabled cookies to collect new information. If you want to change your cookie settings, please open the "Options" or "Preferences" menu of your browser.

PRIVACY RIGHTS IN CALIFORNIA

Under the CCPA, California Consumers have certain rights that they can work out, either freely or through an approved specialist. CCPA rights demands are dependent upon a recognizable proof and confirmation measure. We will not fulfil a CCPA request unless sufficient information has been provided to us so that we can reasonably verify that the requestor is the Consumer about whom we collected the IP.

Some Consumer IP that we retain (e.g. clickstream data) is not sufficiently associated with the Consumer IP for us to verify that it is a particular consumer's IP.  If we are unable to consent to a solicitation, we will clarify the reasons in our reaction. You are not needed to make an account with us to make a solicitation. We will use the IP provided in your request only to verify your identity or authority to complete the request and to track and document responses to requests unless you have provided the IP for another purpose.

We will use commercially reasonable efforts to identify the Consumer IP that we collect, use, store, disclose, or otherwise treat, and respond to requests for privacy rights from California Consumers. In some cases, particularly with voluminous or generally irrelevant data, we may provide you with a summary of your IP and allow you to choose whether you want us to provide you with the complete set of data. Or we can tell you how you can access and copy the sensitive IP yourself. If we determine that the demand justifies a price or refuse to comply with the request, We will notify you explaining why we made that decision. In the event that we apply a fee, we will provide an estimate of the cost and the opportunity to accept that fee before charging you to respond to your request.

 

Disclosure rights

You reserve the privilege to demand that we uncover the accompanying data for a time of a year preceding the mentioned date. Requests from consumers of this type may be made a maximum of two times in a 12-month period. Regarding points (1) and (2) below, we will provide this information in a portable format and, if technologically possible, easy to use.

The IP classifications we have gathered about you. 

The classifications of sources from which we have gathered your IP. 

The business or business purposes for our assortment of your IP. 

The particular bits of IP that we have gathered about you. 

The classifications of outsiders to whom we have unveiled your IP.

A list of IP categories disclosed for business purposes in the previous 12 months (or a statement that such disclosure did not occur).

A list of the categories of IP sold about you in the previous 12 months, including the categories of third parties to whom we sell the IP about you and the business or commercial purposes for the sale (or a statement that such sale did not occur).

 

Verification for disclosure

Clients without an online account or Sherwin-Williams charge account cannot be reasonably validated. See the table above to understand what IP we have collected, the purpose of the collection and with whom we have been able to share it. Customers with an online account will be asked to log into their account at a specific time slot. Upon successful login, we will provide you with the IP categories that we have collected specifically for you. 

 

 

Rights to "Do Not Sell"

We do not sell IP from California Consumers as defined in the CCPA, and until such time as we do not change our practices by updating our Privacy Notice, we will treat IP collected pursuant to this Notice as subject to a “no to sell". Some browsers have signals that can be characterized as "do not track" signals, but we do not believe they work that way or that they signify a "do not sell" request. We believe that various parties are developing “do not sell” signals, and we may recognize certain such signals if we conclude that such a program is appropriate.

 

Suppression Rights

You may request that we delete the IP that we have collected directly from you. Under the CCPA, we may refuse to delete your IP under certain circumstances, for example, if we need the IP to complete transactions or provide services that you have requested or that are reasonably intended, for security purposes, for legitimate internal business purposes (including for the maintenance of business records), to comply with the law or to exercise or defend legal claims. Also, note that we are not required to delete your IP, which we do not collect directly from you.

 

 

PRIVACY RIGHTS FOR EU CITIZENS

For our legitimate business purposes, including:

provide you with materials, products and services, that you request (for example, complete your registration in a loyalty program and send you product samples) and personalize your experience with our Services;

To maintain the integrity of our Services.

To carry out the contracts we have with you, including the treatment of your purchases and transactions.

Our website or app may use web analytics services such as Google Analytics, provided by Google, Inc. and other third-party providers. These services use "cookies" to analyze how visitors use online services. The information generated by cookies about your use of online services (including your IP address) will be transmitted and stored by these providers, also outside the EU, in third countries such as the United States, which may not have laws of data protection or other laws as exhaustive as those of your country.

If your IP address does not fall in the category of IP anonymization, the full IP address may be transferred to third-party non-EU providers.  You can refuse the use of cookies as described in this Policy, and some providers offer you the ability to prevent the collection and processing of data generated by cookies and related to your use of the website (including the address IP) by downloading and installing a browser plug-in.
