To make this Policy easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally-identifiable information might be requested. Throughout this Policy, “we”, “us”, and “our” refers to 5.11, Inc. and its parents, subsidiaries, and its affiliated entities, and “Website” refers to the sites found on the Internet at

The Information We Collect:

We may collect personal data from customers both online and offline. Online, we may collect information through the Website, an affiliated site (such as a promotional microsite linked to our site), a 5.11 Tactical page on a community website (such as Facebook or the like), or through similar online avenues. On some pages, you may order products, make requests, submit product reviews, and register to receive materials or information. Offline, we may collect information through our sales associates at retail locations (such as email addresses for the purposes of sending electronic receipts). Our Policy applies to all information collected by or submitted to the Website, 5.11, or its employees as described herein.

The types of personal information collected include, without limitation, your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information.

On some pages, you may submit information about other people. For example, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient’s address. In this circumstance, the types of personal information collected relating to the recipient include their name, shipping address, and phone number.

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. We may also combine that information with data that is publicly available and/or data from third parties.

Automatic Data Collection

Our Website uses “cookie” technology to improve the quality of your experience. A cookie is a small file that contains information sent by a website that is saved on your hard disk by your computer’s browser.

We use this information to measure the number of visitors to areas of our Website, and to help us make our Website more useful and interesting to our visitors. We use information from cookies in the aggregate to analyze for trends and statistics, and then discard it.

The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include:

  • Cookies (or browser cookies)   A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer. You may refuse to accept browser cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of our Website.

We may also use technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third party websites or other online services (e.g.behavioral tracking). Because there are not yet common industry-accepted “do-not-track” standards and systems, our Website does not respond to “do-not-track” signals.

The Way We Use Information

We may post a product review or other content (including social media posts associated with hashtags related to 5.11) that you submit, although we reserve the right to not post such content if we, in our sole discretion, deem the content inappropriate. See our Terms of Use for more information.

We will occasionally send out promotional e-mails to our previous purchasers relating to sweepstakes and catalog and e-mail signups. You may opt-in to receive e-mails from us by providing an email address during checkout at any 5.11-owned retail store or by signing up within your Registered Customer Account. We provide full instructions on how to unsubscribe from these distribution lists at the bottom of each e-mail that is circulated.

We also reserve the right to transfer your personal information to a third party in the event of a transfer of all or substantially all of our assets or business, provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Policy.

We may share product reviews that you submit with our authorized dealers solely for informational and promotional purposes. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our Website. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our Website periodically.

You may access and edit any personally-identifiable information maintained within your account at any time. To do so, simply login using your email address and secured password and navigate through the information tabs on the left-hand side of your Account Dashboard.

If you wish to unsubscribe from our e-mail list, you will need to do so by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our marketing e-mails, or by updating your “Newsletter Subscription” status within your account.

Our Commitment to Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place and maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.

Children’s Privacy:

The third party has agreed to implement technology and security features and strict policy guidelines to safeguard the privacy of your personal information from unauthorized access or improper use.

California Do Not Track Notice:

Because there are not yet common, industry-accepted “do not track” standards and systems, our Website does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals.

The data we collect or process from the Website will be stored in the United States of America. As such, we take considerable measures to comply with the legal requirements and safeguards set forth by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and other applicable legal requirements required for cross-border collection, use, and retention of personal information from the European Economic Area (“EEA”), Switzerland, or the United Kingdom. If you are located in the EEA, Switzerland, or United Kingdom, please refer to the Region-Specific Data Privacy Terms. If you are an authorized 5.11 Tactical dealer or distributor, please here to learn more about our collection of company data.

Purchases made through our website by customers with shipping locations outside of the United States are processed through a third-party, i-Parcel LLC (“i-Parcel”), and not through 5.11. Personal information that you provide in connection with any Website purchase is provided directly to i-Parcel, not to 5.11, although i-Parcel may share this information with us if necessary. For more information on i-Parcel’s privacy policies and terms of use, click click here.
