“Do Not Sell” Requests

We do not transfer your Personal Information to third parties in exchange for money but information may be shared with certain third party advertising partners for our targeted advertising purposes, specifically, limited identifying information with User Activity Information (as described in the Privacy Policy) may be shared with such partners through targeting cookies,  and limited identifying information with recent user transaction information may be shared with such partners through data extracts. Under the California Consumer Privacy Act, California residents may be entitled to opt-out of such sharing (referred to as a “Do Not Sell” right). Please visit our Customer Sharing Preferences page for more information about such sharing and to opt-out of third party targeting cookies and/or data extracts as described therein. You can opt back in to targeting cookies through the Customer Sharing Preferences page, and opt back in to data extracts by contacting us as directed below.

Financial Incentives and Consumer Information

DICK’S may offer discounts or other benefits to consumers enrolled in certain subscription programs: (1) Consumers can opt-in to email promotions from DICK’S by submitting their email address where prompted on the DICK’S homepage, Ways to Connect page or other webpages managed by the DICK’S Family of Businesses, and will receive a coupon for a percentage off the consumer’s next purchase. (2) Consumers can opt-in to DICK’S Text Alerts as described on the Ways to Connect page, and will receive a coupon code to use towards a future online purchase. (3) Consumers can opt-in to the ScoreCard program (and opt-in is part of joining the ScoreRewards credit card) as described on the Benefits page, and earn one point for every $1 spent to get a $10 reward for every 300 points. (4) Consumers can opt-in to offered sweepstakes or contests where a specified offer, prize or discount may be awarded to one or more winner(s). Please refer to the webpages referenced above for details about each programs’ benefits, terms and conditions, and please note that they are subject to change from time to time. Consumers can always opt-out of these programs as indicated in the DICK’S Privacy Policy (Sections II and V) or by contacting Customer Service.

DICK’S does not generally assign monetary value to consumers’ personal information, and promotions activity associated with the DICK’S subscription programs changes continually. To the extent the CCPA requires that a value be assigned to such programs, or to the price or service differences they involve, DICK’S values the information collected and used under each program as being equal to the value of the discounts or other financial incentives provided in each such program, based upon a practical and good-faith effort to assess, on an aggregate basis for all collected information: (i) the type of information collected in each program (e.g., email address), (ii) the use of such information by DICK’S in connection with its marketing activities, (iii) the range of discounts provided (which can depend on each consumer’s purchases under such offers), (iv) the volume of individuals enrolled in the programs, and (v) the products for which the benefits (such as a discount) can apply. These variable factors continue to change over time. This description is without waiver of any proprietary or business confidential information, including trade secrets, and it does not constitute any representation with regard to generally accepted accounting principles or financial accounting standards.

Job applicants

If you are a job applicant submitting personal information to DICK’S in connection with an application for employment, you will receive a privacy notice regarding such information as part of the application process.

California Proposition 65

The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, also referred to as Proposition 65, is a California initiative to address concerns regarding exposure to toxic chemicals. Proposition 65 requires warning labels on products that contains certain levels of the 600+ elements that the California Air Resources Board considers a carcinogen or a reproductive toxicant. These elements include lead, brass, PVC and a multitude of other everyday elements.

The general Proposition 65 notice is: WARNING: You have purchased an item that contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

California Transparency in Supply Chains Act

As required under the California Transparency Supply Chain Act, we are disclosing our efforts to mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain.

Verification

DICK'S Sporting Goods, Inc. is committed to fair labor practices throughout the supply chain. New and existing private brand contracted factories are regularly assessed against our Human Rights Policy which is based on International Labour Organization standards and can be found here. Assessments are initiated based on geographic location, workplace history or previous audit record and other policy requirements. These audits are performed by DICK'S Compliance Team members and also by third party verifiers. Results are reviewed by Compliance Managers, who assist factories in remediating issues identified during audits, share key performance data with internal business partners as appropriate, and also engage with industry and NGO stakeholders to identify strategic opportunities to improve working conditions. DICK'S is a Better Work Buyer Partner (www.betterwork.org) and leverages the Better Work program to engage with key factories in countries where Better Work operates.

Auditing

Each year DICK'S audits a significant percentage of our private brand contract factories to determine if they are in compliance with our standards, which in addition to requiring compliance with local laws on working hours, wages and health and safety concerns, also prohibit forced, slave or child labor. Audits are performed by DICK'S Compliance Team members or third party verifiers and are semi-unannounced within a negotiated time frame. Annual and follow-up audit frequency is determined in accordance with our policy and is based in part on the level of risk and non-compliance determined by previous audit results.

Certification

As part of the supplier onboarding process, all vendors are required to certify that they conduct business in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations which include any existing laws on slavery and human trafficking in the country of manufacture. DICK'S certifies private brand factories into various risk levels and active status categories. Detailed Corrective Action Plans are required within 14 days for any non-compliance with local law or our Human Rights Policy. Factories must exhibit continuous improvement, transparency, and management cooperation to ensure continued certification and business eligibility. Additional follow up audits are required until high risk issues are resolved. Lack of continuous improvement may result in termination of the business relationship. Factories that demonstrate low risk and strong management systems have opportunities to reduce the frequency of audits.

Internal Accountability

The Vice President of Global Compliance, who reports to the General Counsel, is responsible for overseeing the compliance and factory monitoring programs. The Vice President of Global Compliance works with the DICK'S Compliance Team members to ensure that the Factory Compliance Policy is followed and with Product Development and Sourcing teams to integrate key performance data into the sourcing business process and to address high risk factories. In addition to requiring corrective actions and remediation of identified non-compliances, DICK'S actively encourages factories to take ownership of compliance management and implement root cause/management systems based approaches to facilitate sustainable improvement. In addition to working with factory management, DICK'S strategically communicates responsible sourcing guidelines to internal business partners and vendors and also provides "hotline" channels for workers that we engage during factory visits.

Training

DICK'S provides annual training to relevant associates and business units on our Human Rights Policy and program requirements. Training is conducted with management level associates in roles related to sourcing, product development, quality assurance and who interact with or travel to factories and may be in the best position to identify issues. Training on responsible sourcing guidelines and program expectations is also conducted in annual meetings with vendors and factories.
