As a result, we have prepared this Privacy and Security Policy to let you know about the manner in which we collect, use, disclose and otherwise manage the business information you entrust to us at any of our warehouses or store locations (the "Stores"),
through any HD Supply Call Centers (the "Call Centers"), websites (the "Sites"), our approved marketing partners ("Marketing Partners") or through our authorized service providers ("Service Providers").

answer your question, such as your name and address and a phone number where we might contact you or another person in your business. We may retain this information to assist your business in the future.

e-mail address, a password, and business interests. This registration information may be used to help make your online shopping quicker and easier, by pre-populating certain parts of your shopping information.

Security Measures on our Sites
When you place orders on our Sites, all of your order information, including your credit or debit card number and delivery address, is transmitted through the Internet using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology causes your browser to
encrypt your order information before transmitting it to our secure server. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent someone other than operators of our Sites from capturing and viewing your business information.
HD Supply, Inc. also takes the following measures to protect your business information online:
To provide you with an increased level of security, online access to your business information is protected with a password. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to any third party. HD Supply, Inc. will never ask you for your password
in any unsolicited correspondence such as letters, phone calls or email messages.
Since any order information you provide to us on our Sites will be transmitted using a secure connection, if your Web browser cannot support this level of security, you will not be able to order products through our Sites.
No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your company's business information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure, HD Supply, Inc. cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information
you transmit to us on our Sites.
