INFORMATION FOR OUR CUSTOMERS ABOUT RFID IN OUR NORWEGIAN BRAND STORES

Using EPC-RFID
EPC-enabled RFID makes it possible for our company to capture information about clothing items without line-of-sight or physical contact. Core to the RFID application is its “smart chip,” a small chip with antenna upon which a sequence of numbers is stored. We are currently (fall/winter 2014) testing the technology on parts of our assortment and expect to have most products labelled with RFID from early 2015.

Benefits for our customers
We expect EPC-enabled RFID will optimise our company’s logistics processes, which in turn will allow us to offer our customers improved availability of products and better customer service.

Our Commitment
Moods of Norway will only use EPC-RFID for the improvement of internal processes to better serve our customers and no personal customer data will be stored.
