This Privacy Statement describes how Go Unlimited LLC, a joint venture between Whirlpool Corporation (“Whirlpool”) and The Procter & Gamble Company (“P&G”) (Whirlpool and P&G, collectively, the “Affiliates”) will collect, use and disclose your Personal Information (as defined below) and applies to customers in the United States.
Swash is a brand of Go Unlimited LLC and, in this Privacy Statement, “Go Unlimited, LLC” and “Swash” will be used interchangeably.
Swash understands that visiting a company's website or doing business by email, phone, fax or direct (postal) mail requires trust on your part. We value this trust, and if we collect or use Personal Information from you, we will do so in a manner consistent with this Privacy Statement.
By using this Swash website or by otherwise providing your Personal Information to Swash (such as by filling out your product registration card or subscribing to our newsletters), you agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement.
For purposes of this Privacy Statement, “Personal Information” is data specifically about you that you typically provide on a voluntary basis. Personal Information does not include any information that you post for public consumption, such as testimonials and reviews (“Public Postings”), or aggregate or combined information. Aggregate or combined information includes data that is related to you but studied as a group and does not identify you specifically.
Examples of Personal Information that we may collect from you include but are not limited to:

We may obtain information about you from other sources, including commercially available sources, such as data aggregators and public databases. The following are examples of information we may collect from other sources.
All of the information we collect about you may be combined to help us tailor our communications to you and to develop world-class products and services of superior quality.
Certain web browsers may provide an option that allows you to inform the websites you visit that you do not wish to have your activities tracked by cookies or other persistent identifiers, commonly called "Do Not Track". Because Do Not Track is a standard that is not yet finalized, the Swash website currently does not respond to Do Not Track signals, but rather adheres to the standards set forth in this Privacy Statement. You may opt-out of interest-based advertising by following the instructions in the “Interest-based Advertising” subsection below.
We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our website. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser.
A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following the directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file. We set a persistent cookie to store your account settings so we can identify you the next time you visit or enable some functions on our website. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our website.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our website, but your ability to use some areas of our website may be limited.
Web beacons are miniscule electronic image files that can be embedded within a web page or included in an e-mail message, and are usually invisible to the human eye. When used, web beacons (also known as "clear GIFs" or "tracking pixels") may tell us such things as: how many people are coming to our website, whether they are one-time or repeat visitors, which pages they viewed and for how long, how well certain online advertising campaigns are converting, and other similar website usage data. When used in an e-mail, web beacons can tell us the time the e-mail was opened, if and how many times it was forwarded, and what links users click on from within the e-mail message. Based on this information, we can adjust the content, products, services, and promotions we provide you to better meet your interests, as well as make you aware of Swash products, services, and/or special offers in which you may be interested.
Log files are files that record web activity and gather non-personal statistics about your visit to or use of our website. Log files may help us capture, among other things: (i) your IP address, which is a unique set of numbers assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider (ISP) (which, depending on your ISP, may be a different number every time you connect to the Internet); (ii) the type of browser and operating system you use; and (iii) other information about your online session, such as the URL you came from to get to our website and the date and time you visited our website. In addition to using this information from our log files to better understand how our websites are used, we may use information captured through log files (such as your IP address) with your Personal Information to troubleshoot technical problems, maintain online safety and security, and if necessary, prohibit or restrict access to our online services by certain users.
Swash may disclose your Personal Information to third parties acting on our behalf as service providers, such as our call center operators, shippers, servicers, or people who analyze data for us. While these third parties have access to some of the Personal Information that Swash may have about you, the information is limited to what they need to know to do their jobs, and they may not use this Personal Information for their own purposes.
If you opt-in to receive communications from one or more of our Affiliates, you agree that (i) Swash may disclose and share your Personal Information with Whirlpool and/or P&G, as applicable, and (ii) our Affiliates may use your Personal Information in accordance with their privacy policies (available at http://www.pg.com/privacy/english/privacy_notice.shtml for P&G and at http://www.whirlpool.com/privacy for Whirlpool), including to send you promotional communications. If you decide you no longer want to receive communications from our Affiliates, you may opt-out in accordance with their privacy policies.
Swash may disclose or transfer your Personal Information:
Swash may share aggregate or combined information or your Public Postings with our Affiliates and other third parties for research or analytical purposes, to allow companies to develop better products for our users, among other uses.
If you are a California resident, you have the right to request and receive certain information about our disclosure of your Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and your choices with respect to such disclosures. Because it is our policy not to share your Personal Information with third parties for their own marketing purposes unless you are first given the opportunity to opt-out from such sharing, we are exempt from having to meet this requirement. If you still wish to learn more about our compliance with this requirement, please contact us via the “Contact Us” section of this Privacy Statement.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. The transmission of sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms is encrypted. However, there is always some risk in transmitting information over the Internet. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. For this reason, we cannot guarantee the absolute security or privacy of transmissions via the Internet, and we will not be liable for any lack of security relating to the use of the Swash website or services by you. You agree that you will not hold Swash liable for any damages resulting from any loss of privacy or security occurring in connection with any communications over the Internet.
From time to time, we may update this Privacy Statement. If we do, we will note near the top of this page the date that any changes are made and/or when they become effective. If the changes being made are material (that is, we make a major change in the important points of the Privacy Statement), we may alert you to the changes in a more prominent way. For example, we may temporarily highlight the new or revised sections in this Privacy Statement, temporarily post a prominent notice on our home page or registration/login page, or temporarily add the word "Updated" to the title of this Privacy Statement and any hypertext links pointing to this Privacy Statement. In some instances, we may also send you an e-mail message or other communication telling you about the changes and any choices you may have or actions you may take before they go into effect. Your inaction or continued use of our website and services after any such alerts or notices, or your acceptance of any changes for which we require your prior approval, will tell us that you agree to these changes.
This Privacy Statement applies only to information collected by Swash and is not intended to describe data handling procedures for information collected by other websites or by our Affiliates. This website may contain links to websites owned by other companies, including our Affiliates. Swash is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such websites.
Our website is aimed at a general audience and Swash does not generally seek to collect information about children under the age of 13. If we offer an app or website feature that is targeted towards children and collects information from children under the age of 13, (i) we will detail the type of information that we collect and how we use and disclose that information, and (ii) we will obtain parental consent before we collect, use, store, or disclose any Personal Information about a child under the age of 13. If a child has provided us with Personal Information, a parent or guardian may contact us to request that we delete such information from our records. To do so, contact us via the “Contact Us” section below.

You may, at any time, inform us that you do not want Swash to contact you with any marketing or promotional communications by contacting us via the “Contact Us” section below or, by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each promotional email.
Even if you opt-out of receiving promotional communications from Swash, we may send you strictly service, transactional or safety-related announcements when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance or if there is a product recall, we might send you an email. We may also email you regarding your warranty or service reminders or if you place an order. You may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature.
You also may not opt-out from having aggregate or combined information collected except as otherwise specified in this Privacy Statement.
If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your Personal Information to provide you services, please contact us via the “Contact Us” section below. While we normally retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services, please note that if you cancel your account, we may still retain and use your Personal Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
