TRACKING TOOLS WE USE

We use the following methods to automatically collect information from visitors to our Sites:

Cookies.  Cookies are small data files that download onto your computer or other device when you visit the Site or otherwise access our online content on certain websites. Cookies may be used for many purposes. We use both session cookies (which are deleted when you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which remain on your computer after the browser has been closed).
To learn more, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/.

Web Beacons.  Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “pixel tags,” “1×1 GIFs,” or “clear GIFs” may be included in our web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or email can act as a web beacon.  Web beacons and similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Sites, to monitor how users navigate the Sites, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular links were actually viewed.

Embedded Scripts.  An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Sites, such as the links you click on.  The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our server or a third-party service provider, is only active while you are connected to one of the Sites, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

WE USE TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS.

We may use the information collected automatically through the Sites in order to:

  • track visitors to our websites;
  • recognize past visitors and customers and remember preferences;
  • store your password if you are registered on our site;
  • integrate with third party social media websites;
  • store your password if you are registered on our website;
  • facilitate your purchases;

  • prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times;
  • combine information we have collected about you from multiple sources;
  • better understand our audience, our customers, our website visitors, and their respective interests.

WE ENGAGE IN INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING.

We and our partners display interest-based advertising using information gathered about you over time across multiple websites or other platforms (including websites and apps). Third parties, including advertising and analytics companies, set their own cookies and similar tracking technologies on the Sites.  We and  third parties might link information automatically through cookies and other tracking technologies to your name or email address or other information, including past purchases made offline or online.

Interest-based advertising or “online behavioral advertising” includes ads served to you after you leave our website, encouraging you to return. They also include ads we think are relevant based on your browsing habits or online activities. These ads might be served on third-party websites or on apps. They might also be served in emails. We might serve these ads, or third parties may serve ads. They might be about our products or other companies’ products.

THIRD PARTIES WHO SET COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES THROUGH THE SITES.

For example, we collect details of the site where the visitor has come from and the total number of times a visitor has been to our website.
