How We Use Personal Information
We use the Personal Information you provide about yourself when placing an order or registering for warranty or out of warranty service to complete that order or service registration and to provide you with information about other Laurier Optical products and promotions that may be of interest to you. Your Personal Information may be shared with our employees, independent contractors, agents or other related and unrelated Laurier Optical entities and/or business partners acting on our behalf to: (i) fulfill and/or ship an order or provide a product or service you have requested; (ii) provide an award; (iii) provide mail-in or other rebate on the products that you may purchase; (iv) conduct customer surveys for the purpose of marketing; and (v) collect debt or other payments. We do not share this information with non-Laurier Optical companies except to the extent necessary to complete your transaction and, when we do share it, it is subject to their agreement to treat it as confidential business information and with the understanding that it may not be used for any purpose other than to perform their function. If you inquire about a product that Laurier Optical does not sell directly, it may forward your information to a Laurier Optical dealer, distributor or other reseller.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive as well as to provide you with product and service updates, special promotions and offers.
In the course of growing or restructuring our business, we may purchase the assets of another company or sell the assets of our company. During these transactions, information about customers is frequently considered a business asset that is the subject of such a purchase or sale. Also, in the unlikely event that Laurier Optical or substantially all of its assets are either acquired or subject to liquidation in bankruptcy, Information may be transferred as well.
