We will not discriminate against you because you exercised your rights under this section of our Notice.
For purposes of exercising your rights above, please note the following regarding how we collect and use your Personal Information as described in this Notice:
Bloomingdale's does not hold personal information at the household level as defined by the CCPA. If you would like to submit a request for multiple people in the same household, please submit an individual request for each person.

Bloomingdale's automatically provides Loyallist loyalty benefits to Bloomingdale's credit cardholders. Customers may sign-up for Bloomingdale's Loyallist program if they don't have a Bloomingdale's credit card. To participate as a non-cardholder, you must provide an email (so we can send reward and program-related information), phone number (as the identifier used to track purchases that go toward reward points and to redeem rewards), address, and birth month and day. The purpose of the Loyallist loyalty program is to encourage repeat business with Bloomingdale's and enhance your shopping experience. Repeat customers generally spend more than customers who only shop once or twice a year.
The benefits provided to customers (or realized by Bloomingdale's) vary by customer depending upon the purchases made, whether items are bought in-store or online, which offers a customer uses, and many other factors. Bloomingdale's also incurs a variety of expenses, costs associated with discounts on purchases and shipping. The benefits are reasonably related to the value of the data you provide.
The benefits of the Loyallist program, and terms and conditions, are described here.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under CCPA. Loyallist members also remain free to opt-out of email, phone, and text marketing at any time.
We also offer customers a discount promotion code for signing up for marketing emails. The promotion code is provided in a confirmation email. However, customers may opt out at any time thereafter and still retain the ability to use the promotion code. We provide this incentive because we want to be able to send offers by email. The cost of sending an email is nominal.
|Request Type||Received||Rejected||Completed||Avg # Days to Respond|

We will use the information provided to match the identifying information we have to verify your identity before processing the request.
Information About Children Under 13
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act imposes requirements on Web sites that collect personal information about children under 13 years old (for example - name, address, email address, social security number, etc.). Our current policy is not to collect any personal information on any person under 13 years old online. For this reason, our sweepstakes and other promotions conducted online are restricted to entrants who are at least 13 years old.
If this policy changes, we will revise this portion of our Notice of Privacy Practices and will comply with the requirements of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, which includes providing notice and choice to each child's parent or guardian before collecting any personal information.
Opt-In Consent for Minors
Bloomingdale's services are offered to customers who are of the age of 16 years and above. No programs, services, or offerings are intended for children under the age of 16. Also, credit products are not available for the customer below the age of 18 years.
International Customer Privacy
To fill international orders, bloomingdales.com partners with Borderfree, Inc. (formerly FiftyOne). Borderfree will carefully process your personal information with at least the same level of privacy protection consistent with the former U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Privacy Principles and the U.S. Swiss Safe Harbor Privacy Principles established by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Borderfree also agrees not to sell, transfer, or otherwise use your information other than for processing international shipments.
When you indicate you are shipping internationally, you will be redirected to a checkout page hosted by Borderfree. On the checkout page, you will be required to submit personal information to Borderfree to complete your order. Once you place your order, you will be prompted to confirm whether you would like to receive future marketing communication from bloomingdales.com.
Borderfree will notify bloomingdales.com of the approval of your order, and bloomingdales.com will then ship approved orders to Borderfree. Simultaneously, Borderfree will purchase the product from us, which allows them to take title to the product(s), bill your credit card, collect and remit any duties and taxes to the appropriate taxing authority, and arrange for the product to be delivered to you. In this process, Borderfree makes the sale to you as the merchant of record. When ordering a product, you will be presented with Borderfree's terms and conditions. You must agree to them to receive the product(s) you ordered.
Once you agree that Borderfree may share your personal information with bloomingdales.com, that data is protected by this Notice of Privacy Practices, and you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers located in the United States.
Our practices are consistent with both the EU and Swiss Safe Harbor Privacy Principles.
Bloomingdale's is committed to resolving any customer concerns regarding their privacy. If a customer feels that their privacy may have been violated, based on the Safe Harbor Principles, bloomingdales.com will attempt to directly resolve the complaint. Any complaints that are still unresolved after these direct efforts will be settled by arbitration administered by JAMS in accordance with its applicable commercial rules.

Additionally, sometimes bad actors attempt to use our brand to create fake web pages, send fake texts or emails, and conduct other illegal activities to commit fraud or attempt to breach consumers' security. We actively monitor for these illegal scams and shams. We provide FAQs and Consumer Protection Alerts in our Customer Protection Center (CPC) as we learn of these activities. If you receive anything with the Bloomingdale's brand that seems suspicious, you can check to see if there is an alert on the CPC or call our customer service department.
