  • How we collect that information.
  • How we use that information.
  • The choices we offer, including how to access and update information

INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM AND ABOUT YOU.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION. The term “Personally Identifiable Information” (“PII”) refers to personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, birth date, credit card number, e-mail address or mailing address, and any other information that is identified with you personally, including your individual health information. Other than cookies, as described below, the only PII we currently collect through this Site is the information you voluntarily give us when you use the Site. For example, you may use this site to contact us with questions and comments. When you fill out a form on a Site, you may provide your name and other contact information, including your company’s name, your e-mail address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company or other PII. When you submit information through the Site, you may receive a confirmation e-mail if you enter a valid e-mail address.

PAYMENT AND BILLING INFORMATION. When purchasing items, you may be required to provide third-party vendors or agents with the information necessary to process the order; specifically, name, address, credit card number, and other information required by them, according to the terms of such third parties’ privacy policies. By providing such information to such parties, you consent to their use of such information to purchase products, and hereby release us from any liability with respect to such information collected by third parties.

INFORMATION YOU POST. For example, we may collect or use a third party’s data from information you post in a public space on a Site or on a third-party web or social media site.

LOCATION INFORMATION. Information collected through the Site includes any information identified in this policy that may be collected through the Site and may collect location data, in the forms of both GPS data and/or beacon transmitter data, (if enabled on your mobile device). You may opt-out of these notifications any time in your settings. You may also opt-out of GPS location services by turning off your mobile device’s ability to share location data. If you do turn off these Collection Tools, you may not have access to many features that make your experience more efficient and enjoyable, and some features may not function properly.

NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION. “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” (or “Non-PII”) is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity. In addition to the information you provide when you use a Site, we use technology to collect anonymous information about the use of the Site. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access the Site, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they viewed. We also use technology to determine which web browsers visitors use and the address from which they accessed a Site (for example, if they connected to a Site by clicking on an ad).

This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about visitors and their use of the Site. We use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand customers and markets, and to improve products and services.

COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES.

WE OR OUR VENDORS USE SEVERAL COMMON TRACKING TOOLS. THESE MAY INCLUDE BROWSER COOKIES. WE MAY ALSO USE WEB BEACONS AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES. WE USE THESE TOOLS TO:

  • Recognize new or past customers.
  • Store your password if you are a registered on our sites.
  • Improve the Site.
  • Collect information about your browsing history.
  • Better understand the interests of our customers and website visitors.

A cookie is a small piece of information that is sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not damage your computer and they cannot be used to discover the identity of a user.

YOU CAN CONTROL TRACKING TOOLS.

You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. This enables you to decide if you want to accept it or not and whether you are required to accept the cookie to view certain content.

Your browser may give you the ability to control cookies. How you do so depends on the type of cookie. Certain browsers can be set to reject browser cookies. Not all cookies can be rejected through a browser.

If you block cookies on your browser, certain features on the Site may not work. If you block or delete cookies, not all of the tracking that we have described in this policy will stop.

Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to those signals.

We may use Local Storage Objects (LSOs) such as HTML5 to store content information and preferences. Your browser may offer a management tool for removing LSOs.

We may use cookies to “persist” a user session that is, to maintain connection with a user as he or she moves through an application or series of web pages. The purpose of cookies in this context is to remember user inputs. For example, a “shopping cart” application records purchases up until the user reaches checkout.

SOME ADS MAY BE SERVED BASED ON TRACKING.

Online behavioral advertising and ad personalization features also use cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies to identify groups of users and deliver appropriate content, services and advertising, to provide social media features and to analyze traffic to the Site. We also share information about your use of Site with our trusted, third-party and analytics partners, including, but not limited to Google. These partners may show past visitors to this Site advertisements on other sites across the Internet through services such as Google Remarketing or Similar Audiences, Google AdWords, Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Google Customer Match, and other platforms as applicable. Each of these third parties and/or platforms have their own privacy policies. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the terms and conditions of these policies.

When using Google Customer Match, we will only upload to Google customer information shared with it directly, i.e., information collected from the Site.

For more information on the types of cookies used by Google, go to the site “Types of cookies used by Google,” located at https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/types/, or any other URL Google may provide from time to time. For more information on Google Analytics, and how it collects and processes data visit the site “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or Apps,” located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ , or any other URL Google may provide from time to time.

The following Google Analytics Advertising Features are enabled:

  • Remarketing with Google Analytics
  • Google Display Network Impression Reporting
  • Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting
  • Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data via advertising cookies and identifiers

These Advertising Features enable Google Analytics to collect data about your traffic via Google advertising cookies (more information at https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/types/) and identifiers, in addition to data collected through a standard Google Analytics implementation.

We will not facilitate the merging of PII with Non-PII collected through any Google advertising product or feature unless you have robust notice of, and the user’s prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger.

YOU CAN OPT-OUT OF ONLINE BEHAVIORAL ADVERTISING.

You may opt out of the use of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) consumer opt-out page (http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/). In addition, you may opt out of Google Analytics Advertising Features through Google Ads Settings, Google Ad Settings for mobile apps, or any other available means (for example, the NAI’s consumer opt-out). You may also use any Google Analytics opt-out tool then available for the web which can be found at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/ or any other URL Google may provide for time to time. For more information about adjusting how ads are targeted through Facebook, go to the site “How can I adjust how ads are targeted to me based on my activity off of Facebook,” located at https://www.facebook.com/help/568137493302217 or any other URL Facebook may provide from time to time.
