What kind of information does Journeys collect?
The Site is intended for audiences 13 years of age and above. All areas on the Journeys Site that accept personal information (email address, name, address, gender etc.) from a customer have an age verification field. If the customer is not 13 years of age or older, the information is not accepted or stored by the Site. 

Journeys does collect customer information on those users who are 13 years of age or older in an effort to improve our customers' shopping experience. Journeys recognizes that it must maintain and use customer information responsibly. The information collected is used to help us respond to customer inquiries, send emails about sales and events, send catalogs and other marketing and promotional materials through the mail, contact contest winners and/or ship and bill orders. The information also helps us in determining what products appeal to our customers so we can better merchandise our site. 

For what purposes does Journeys collection my information?

Journeys collects personal information necessary to process an order, a catalog request, a contest entry or a request to receive promotional emails from the consumer. This information includes name, address, city, province, postal code, phone number, email address, gender (optional) and date of birth (optional), although the month and day of your birthday will be necessary for Birthday Club membership and other promotional benefits tied to your birthday.

When we offer contests or promotions, or join with other companies to do so, visitors who choose to participate in these contests and promotions may be asked to provide personal information to participate. That information may then be used by us and any company offering the contest or promotions to notify winners or to fulfill promotional obligations unless visitors choose to share information with third party providers. We may use third parties to perform services such as mailing catalogs and other marketing and promotional materials on our behalf. We will supply customer information to those third parties to the extent necessary to enable them to perform the services we have engaged them to provide.

How can I exercise my choices about receiving promotional communications?
We may use customer information for marketing and promotional purposes. Each promotional email we send comes with a link that enables our customers to unsubscribe or remove themselves from our mailing list. In addition, we may from time to time make customer information available to other carefully screened companies. Categories of companies with which we may share information include other companies that we believe offer products and services that our customers may be interested in, either directly or through companies that market information about potential customers to other suppliers of products or services. If you would like to make sure that we make every effort not to share your email address or other information with third parties, just send an email message to Please specify which of the Journeys’ brands (Journeys, Journeys Canada, Journeys Kidz and/or Shi by Journeys) from which you would no longer like to receive messages.

Does Journeys share my information with third parties?
In addition to the third-party service providers discussed elsewhere in this policy, Journeys uses carefully selected third-party solution providers on its website to offer specific functionality that help improve the shopping experience for its customers.  As a result, there are occasions where the Site must share customer information with one or more of those providers in order for their software to function as expected and provide our customers with the expected benefit.  In addition to the third-party payment and email opt-in services which are made available through the site, Journeys currently uses the three third-party providers listed below, each of which has access to some customer information as described.  The companies listed have committed to Journeys to adhere to our Customer Information Policy and, in some cases, have also listed a link to their own company policy.

Journeys uses MyBuys to collect information regarding consumer preferences related to Journeys' products and the Site in order to merchandise the Site effectively and make product recommendations to the Site's customers.  MyBuys may use cookies and transparent GIF files to collect information on the Journeys' website as part of the service.  Consumers may review MyBuys' privacy policy at 

What are cookies and how does Journeys use cookies?
What is a cookie? A cookie is a piece of information that is sent to your computer's hard drive to help our site recognize you when you return to our Site. Cookies are used as a standard practice by many sites. An example of how we use this function could be if you started to place items in your shopping cart, but then for some reason had to leave our Site or shut off your computer. When you return to our Site, the cookie would enable our Site to recognize that you have returned and all the items you placed in your cart during an earlier session would still be in your shopping cart. We also use cookies to determine the number of people that come to our Site. It is important for us to understand the number of new customers using our Site. When your computer accepts the cookie, we are able to record that session as a new visitor to our Site. 

As important as cookies are to our Site, we understand that this might make you uncomfortable. If you would prefer to not accept cookies from ours or any other Site, you can modify the setting on your specific web browser to not accept them. Please refer to your browser's online help feature or the user's manual for instructions on how to do this. 

How can I access or change my personal information, withdraw my consent, or make inquiries or complaints in relation to this Policy and Journeys privacy practices?
For those users who have opted to register their personal profile with the Site by setting up an “account”, the above information, including additional “Ship To” addresses, can be reviewed and maintained by the customer by accessing it through the “My Account” link in the top navigation bar of the Site’s pages. For those customers who have not registered a maintainable account on the site, they may contact Journeys customer service at 1-855-472-0435 to have their information updated as needed. 

How long is personal information retained?
Journeys will keep your personal information only as long as it is reasonably necessary for the purpose described in this Policy or for a longer period as may be required by applicable law.

How is personal information secured?
Journeys has adopted appropriate measures to ensure the confidentiality of personal information and to safeguard personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification, in light of, amongst other things, the sensitivity of the information and the purposes for which it is to be used. Furthermore, each and every Journeys employee, mandatory or agent must abide by this policy.

How does Journeys use IP addresses?
An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you get on to the internet.

Our Site does not tie personal information to an IP address. 

How does your site respond to a "Do Not Track" signal from my browser?
Currently, this site does not respond to "Do Not Track" signals from your browser.
