From time-to-time our site may request additional information from users via surveys or contests.  Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose additional information that may be requested.  Information requested via surveys and contests may include additional demographic information.

It is important to note that Mohawk’s web site contains links to other web sites and that those other web sites may not follow the same privacy policies as Mohawk.  For instance, if you click an ad on our web site, this may take you away from our site to an entirely different web site. This includes links from advertisers, content providers and trade partners who may use our logo and/or style as part of a co-branding agreement. These other web sites may collect data from you that Mohawk would not and may use that data in ways that Mohawk would not.

All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added; our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected.
