For example, you should take reasonable steps to ensure the individual concerned is aware of the various matters detailed in this Policy.

    If you do not provide this information to us, we may not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any requests you may have.

    We may combine information you give us with other information from 5.11 sources or transactions, including without limitation 5.11 Stores, direct mail, catalogs, events, and automatic data collection sources.
