Right to Access Personal Information
Consumers have the right to request that CWC disclose certain information to them regarding their personal information as follows:
- The categories of personal information collected by CWC;
- The categories of sources of personal information collected by CWC;
- CWC’s business or commercial purpose for collecting or, if applicable, sharing personal information;
- The categories of third parties with whom or which CWC shares personal information;
- The specific pieces of personal information collected by CWC; and
- The categories of personal information, if any, CWC disclosed for a business purpose to a third party in the preceding 12 months.
Consumers may request that CWC delete any personal information retained by CWC, subject to certain exceptions. Upon receiving and confirming a verifiable consumer request, CWC will delete (and direct its service providers to delete) personal information from CWC’s (or such service providers’) records, except that CWC may deny a request if retaining the personal information is necessary for CWC or one of its service providers to:
- Complete the transaction for which CWC collected personal information, provide any requested products, take actions reasonably anticipated within the scope of CWC’s ongoing relationship, or perform a contract between CWC and a consumer;
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activity;
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair intended functionality;
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her free speech rights, or exercise another right provided by law;
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on the consumer’s relationship with CWC;
- Comply with a legal obligation; and
- Make other internal and lawful uses of personal information that are compatible with the context in which it was provided.
Verifiable Consumer Requests
To exercise any rights described in these disclosures, a consumer must submit a verifiable consumer request to CWC as set forth in the Policy. Only a consumer, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that a consumer authorizes to act on behalf of the consumer, may make a verifiable consumer request relating to personal information. A consumer may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of a minor child.
A verifiable consumer request for access to personal information or data portability can only be made by a consumer twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows CWC to reasonably determine that the consumer is the person about whom CWC collected personal information or an authorized representative; and
- Describe the request with sufficient detail that allows CWC to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
CWC cannot respond to a request or provide personal information if it cannot verify the consumer’s identity or authority to make the request, and confirm the personal information relates to the consumer. CWC will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
CWC endeavors to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days after its receipt. If CWC requires more time (up to an additional 45 days), CWC will inform the consumer of the reason and extension period in writing. CWC will deliver its written response by mail or electronically, at the consumer’s option. Any disclosures provided by CWC will only cover the 12-month period preceding receipt of the verifiable consumer request. The response provided by CWC will, if applicable, also explain the reasons it cannot comply with any portion of the request. For data portability requests, CWC will select a format to provide personal information that is readily useable and should allow the consumer to electronically transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
CWC does not charge a fee to process or respond to a verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If CWC determines that any request warrants a fee, it will tell the consumer why a fee is warranted and provide the consumer with a cost estimate before completing the request.
CWC will not discriminate against a consumer for exercising any rights under the CCPA. In particular, if a consumer exercises any such rights, CWC will not:
- Deny services or access to a consumer’s file;
- Charge a consumer different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
- Provide a consumer a different level or quality of services; or
- Suggest that a consumer may receive a different price or rate for services, or a different level or quality of services.
CWC may revise these disclosures from time to time by posting the revisions on the Site. Any such revision will take effect immediately upon such posting, but will only relate to personal information collected after such revision is posted. It is a consumer’s responsibility to periodically check the Site for revisions to these disclosures.

YOU ARE REQUIRED TO ACCEPT THESE TERMS PRIOR TO PLACING ANY ORDER ON THIS WEBSITE, AND BY PLACING AN ORDER FOR PRODUCTS FROM THIS WEBSITE, YOU ARE BOUND BY THESE TERMS.
THESE TERMS REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
1. Acceptance. When prompted on the Site, Customer must check the appropriate box to accept the Terms and purchase a Product. If Customer does not indicate its acceptance of such Terms by checking the appropriate box, Customer will not be able to purchase a Product. All purchases of Products from Seller are subject to Customer’s acceptance of these Terms.
2. Orders. Each order for a Product received by Seller through the Site is subject to acceptance by Seller and these Terms as well as any other terms set forth on the Site. Seller may reject any such order for any reason, in its sole discretion. After Customer submits an order, Customer may receive one or more email messages that such order has been (a) received by Seller, (b) accepted by Seller and/or (c) shipped by Seller. If any such order relates to a Product that is unavailable or is otherwise not accepted by Seller, Customer will be so notified in an email message.
4. Sale. In submitting an order for a Product through the Site that is accepted by Seller, Customer purchases from Seller each Product described in such order, subject to these Terms. Customer must provide Seller with complete and accurate information in submitting any such order. Any Product sold on the Site is intended for personal use (including a gift to a third party) only, and is not authorized for resale or other commercial purposes.
5. Prices; Payment.
(a) All prices posted on this Site are subject to change without notice. The price for a Product will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed.

6. Shipping. In submitting an order for a Product, Customer will have options for shipping, and unless otherwise provided expressly on the Site, Customer will be charged for shipping as set forth on the Site. All risk of loss to a Product being shipped by Seller transfers to Customer upon actual delivery to Customer.

THE LIMITED WARRANTY INCLUDES YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES FOR A BREACH OF THE LIMITED WARRANTY. SELLER HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OTHER THAN THE LIMITED WARRANTY. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE PRECEDING LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
9. Account. In submitting an order through the Site for a Product, Customer may establish an account with Seller that is accessible using a user name and password chosen by Customer. Customer’s user name and password must comply with whatever protocol is from time to time established by Seller for user names and passwords, and must not be disclosed by Customer to third parties. Customer (a) is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Customer’s user name and password, and (b) must immediately notify Seller in writing of any loss, or any unauthorized access, disclosure or use, of Customer’s user name or password. Seller will not have any liability to Customer or any third party arising from Customer’s failure to keep Customer’s user name or password confidential and may at any time, in its sole discretion and without notice to Customer, terminate or temporarily disable Customer’s access to such account. In addition, Seller may rely on any use of Customer’s user name or password, whether by Customer or any third party, as having been authorized by Customer, unless (a) Customer previously notified Seller in writing of any loss, or any unauthorized access, disclosure or use, of Customer’s user name or password, (b) Seller has had a reasonable opportunity of not less than five days to act on such notice and (c) Seller’s acting on such notice would have clearly avoided any third-party use of such account that was not authorized by Customer.
10. Taxes. All sales and use taxes, plus any other federal, state, county or local duty, surcharge, tax, tariff or other government-imposed fee (except for any tax on the income of Seller) assessed or payable upon an order for a Product or otherwise relating to these Terms shall be payable by Customer, even if such government-imposed fee is not collected by Seller at the time an order for a Product is submitted to Seller.
11. Limitation of Liability. THE REMEDIES DESCRIBED IN THESE TERMS ARE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES AGAINST SELLER. SELLER WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY WITH RESPECT TO A PRODUCT, THESE TERMS OR OTHERWISE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES. EXCEPT IN THE CASE OF ANY GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT BY SELLER, IN NO EVENT WILL ANY LIABILITY OF SELLER WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCT, THESE TERMS OR OTHERWISE EXCEED THE LESSER OF (A) ALL DIRECT DAMAGES ACTUALLY INCURRED BY CUSTOMER OR (B) THE ACTUAL AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER TO SELLER FOR A PRODUCT (NOT INCLUDING ANY CHARGES FOR SHIPPING). THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, BREACH OF CONTRACT OR TORT), EVEN IF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY DAMAGES SHOULD HAVE BEEN FORESEEN BY SELLER, AND EVEN IF ANY REMEDY PROVIDED HEREIN FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
12. Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of these Terms will be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law. If, however, any such provision is prohibited by or invalid under such law, it will be deemed modified to conform to the minimum requirements of such law, or if for any reason it is not deemed so modified, it will be prohibited or invalid only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity without the remainder of such provision, or any other provision of these Terms, being prohibited or invalid.
13. Governing Law. All matters arising out of or related to these Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of New York.
14. Dispute Resolution.
(a) YOU AND THE COOKWARE COMPANY (USA), LLC ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
(b) ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND SELLER ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
(c) The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Section 14. (The AAA Rules are available at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section. Seller will be responsible for the AAA filing fee of any such proceeding.
The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or these Terms are void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If you prevail on any claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to you under the standards for fee shifting provided by law. You may elect to pursue your claim in small claims court rather than arbitration, if you provide Seller with written notice of your intention to do so within 60 days of your purchase. The small claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy.
(d) You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR THE COOKWARE COMPANY (USA), LLC WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.
(e) If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced.
Notices. Customer must send all notices to Seller relating to a Product or these Terms at firstname.lastname@example.org.
15. Any such notice will be effective upon actual receipt by Seller. Seller may send notices to Customer through e-mail, regular mail or a general posting on the Site.

16. Waivers. No failure of Seller to exercise, and no delay by Seller in exercising, any right or remedy under these Terms shall be a waiver of such right or remedy. No waiver of any such right or remedy shall be effective unless made in a writing signed by Seller, and specifically referring to each such right or remedy being waived.
17. Third-Party Beneficiaries. There are no third-party beneficiaries of these Terms, and no provision of these Terms can be enforced or relied upon by any third party.
