The information that we may collect from or about you broadly falls into the following categories:

We Collect Personal Information and Other Information that You Submit

Personal Information. You can visit and use the Site without providing us with personal information, but you will be required to provide personal information to use certain features of the Site. We will collect any personal information from or about you that you choose to provide to us, which may include your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, and payment information.


For example, you must provide personal information to Company: when creating an online account; to purchase products or services; when you provide User-Generated Content (as discussed below); when you send Company email messages or call Company by telephone (in which event Company may retain the content of your email or telephone messages, together with your email address and Company’s response to you); and when responding to communications from us.

 

We will use personal information as described below, including to set up and administer your online account, to process your orders for products and services, to communicate with you in connection with your orders, and to provide you with information and communications that you request or that we believe are relevant or may be of interest to you, subject in each case to applicable laws and the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you provide your mobile or other telephone number to us, you consent to receiving text (SMS and MMS) messages and telephone calls (both in-person and from automated dialing systems) from us at that telephone number as described below.

Company may make User-Generated Content available to other users of the Site (as applicable and at our sole discretion) and will use and disclose User-Generated Content for the purpose for which it was provided.

Company may use and disclose User-Generated Content, excluding components that consist of personal information, in any manner and with any person or entity. 

Other Information We Collect

IP Addresses and Related Data. The servers used to operate and provide the Site may collect data pertaining to you and the equipment, software, and communication methods you use to access the internet and the Site, including internet protocol (“IP”) addresses assigned to the computers and other devices from where you access the internet, your internet service provider, your device ID number, your approximate geographic location, your browser type, the pages you access on the Site, the websites you access before and after visiting the Site, the length of time you spend on the Site, date and time stamps, and clickstream data. Company may use this information to administer the Site and its servers, to generate statistical information, to monitor and analyze Site traffic and usage patterns, to monitor and prevent fraud, to investigate complaints and violations of our policies, and to improve the Site’s content and the products, services, materials, and other content that we describe or make available through the Site (see also how we use Google Analytics as described below). We may combine this information with other Collected Information (including personal information) and information obtained from third parties for the purposes discussed herein. The suppliers that we use to provide the Site may collect information about your visits to the Site and other websites. Some of this information may be collected using cookies and similar tracking technologies as explained further below under “Cookies.”

Cookies. The Site automatically uses cookies to track your use of the Site to facilitate and enhance the user experience on the Site and for other purposes as described below. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored on your device’s hard drive by your browser. The Site may use both cookies that we implement and cookies implemented by our suppliers and other third parties. We use cookies to track how you access and use the Site, to learn when and how users visit the Site, to learn how popular Site pages are and aren’t, to learn which search terms are used to find the Site, and to learn which websites direct you to the Site. We also use cookies to help display certain information on the Site and to improve your enjoyment of the Site, for example, by remembering your contact and other information when you access or use the Site. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can disable this function, but disabling cookies may impact your use and enjoyment of the Site. Our Site suppliers may use cookies and other tracking technologies, such as pixel tags, to track Site visitors across the internet to understand how you get to the Site. We do not have access or control over these cookies and this Privacy Policy does not cover the use of third-party cookies.

Due to this automatic collection of data using cookies, we do not honor “do not track” requests.

Google Analytics. The Site uses Google Analytics, an analytics tool provided by Google Inc., to collect and process data about your use of the Site, including when you visit the Site, URLs of the websites that you visit prior to visiting the Site and when you visit those websites, and IP addresses assigned to the devices from where you access the internet. Google sets and reads cookies to collect this data and your web browser will automatically send data collected by those cookies to Google. Google uses this data to provide us with reports that we will use to improve the Site’s structure and content. For more information on how Google uses this data, visit Google’s Privacy Policy and Google’s page on How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps. To prevent this data from being used by Google Analytics, follow the instructions to download and install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on for each web browser you use. Using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on will not prevent Company from using other analytics tools and will not prevent data from being sent to the Site itself or to Google. For more information about how Google Analytics uses cookies to measure user interactions on websites, visit Google Analytics Cookie Usage on Websites. You may disable cookies as discussed above, but that may impact your use and enjoyment of the Site.

Google Analytics’ Advertising Features. We have enabled and implemented the following Google Analytics Advertising Features: Remarketing with Google Analytics, Demographics and Interest Reporting, Segments, DoubleClick Campaign Manager Integration, and DoubleClick Bid Manager Integration. Remarketing with Analytics uses Google Analytics cookies to serve advertisements to you across the internet based on your visits to the Site. Demographics and Interest Reporting uses a third-party cookie to collect information about our Site traffic by tracking users across websites and across time, which generates a report for us to better understand our Site users. Segments allows us to isolate and analyze subsets of Site users by sorting our Google Analytics data. DoubleClick Campaign Manager Integration and DoubleClick Bid Manager Integration allow us to view, analyze, and create remarketing lists using our DoubleClick Campaign data. To opt out of remarketing advertising provided through Google, to customize your ad preferences, or to limit Google’s collection or use this information, visit Google’s Safety Center and Google’s Ad Settings and follow Google’s personalized ad opt-out instructions. Opting out will not affect your use of the Site.

Advertising Networks, Personalized Advertising, Remarketing, and Retargeting. From time to time the Site may use or participate in advertising networks and related advertising services that are managed and provided by third-party advertising servers, advertising agencies, technology vendors, and research firms. These services collect anonymous information about your visits to and interactions with the Site and other websites and will use that information to target advertisements for goods and services. The information collected may be associated with your personal information. These targeted advertisements may appear on the Site or on other websites. Advertising networks often gather data about consumers who view advertisements to make inferences about a consumer’s interests and preferences, which enables their computers to deliver advertisements directly targeted to the consumer’s specific interests. This practice is often referred to as “online behavioral advertising.” For example, a third-party advertising network might collect the type of internet browser you use, the type of computer operating system you use, the domain name of a website you visit, whether or not you visit specific pages of the Site and other websites, the location of your internet service provider, the date and time of a visit to a website, and other interactions between you and a website.

Google AdWords. We also use Google AdWords, an online advertising service provided by Google, to serve ads on our behalf across the internet and sometimes on the Site. Google uses your internet searches, cookies, and similar identifiers (e.g., pixel tags) to collect anonymous information about your visits to the Site and your interaction with our products and services to generate targeted advertisements to you on other websites that you visit across the internet. To opt out of remarketing advertising provided through Google, to customize your ad preferences, or to limit Google’s collection or use this information, visit Google’s Safety Center and Google’s Ad Settings and follow Google’s personalized ad opt-out instructions. Opting out will not affect your use of the Site.

To change your preferences with respect to certain online ads and to obtain more information about third-party ad networks and online behavioral advertising, please visit the National Advertising Initiative Consumer opt-out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Program. Please remember that changing your settings with individual browsers or ad networks will not necessarily carry over to other browsers or ad networks. As a result, depending on the opt-outs you request, you may still see our ads from time to time.

Social Media. The Site may allow you to connect to and share information with various social media platforms, for example, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+. These features may require us to implement cookies, plug-ins, and application protocol interfaces (APIs) provided by those social media platforms to facilitate those communications and features. We may share information that you provide us or that we may collect about your use of the Site with those platforms and that information will be subject to their privacy policies. We encourage you to review those platforms’ privacy policies: Facebook’s Data Policy; Instagram’s Privacy Policy; Twitter’s Privacy Policy; LinkedIn’s Privacy Policy; Pinterest’s Privacy Policy; and Google’s Privacy Policy. In addition, by choosing to use any third-party social media platform or choosing to share content or communications with any social media platform, you allow us to share information with the designated social media platform. We cannot control any policies or terms of such third party platform. As a result, we cannot be responsible for any use of your information or content by a third party platform, which you use at your own risk.

The Site may also use the advertising services and networks offered by those social media platforms to deliver advertising content. Use of these services requires social media platforms to implement cookies or pixel tags to deliver ads to you while you are logged into the platform.

If you do not wish a social media platform to collect information relating to you via the Site, we suggest that you: (a) do not connect to or share information with that social media platform using the Site; (b) hide social media platform plug-ins using an ad blocker; (c) always log off completely from the social media platform before visiting other websites and delete all related cookies; and, (d) where the option made available by the social media platform, disable the advertising services and networks operated by that platform. For example, you may opt out of Twitter’s interest-based advertising by notifying Twitter through one of the methods it describes here.

Company is active on social media, including Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+, and LinkedIn. You have the opportunity to comment on those social media platforms regarding Company and the products and services we offer. Company reserves the rights to post on its websites and social media pages any comments or content that you post on our social media pages. Company will be held harmless and without liability for the results of any and all third-party reposts to any and all other locations, including the direct or assumed meaning regarding content from all company social media websites.

Embedded Content. The Site may incorporate content, including feeds scripts embedded in the Site’s code and visible content (for example, videos), provided by third parties. In some cases, those third parties collect data about how you interact with their content. For example, YouTube may collect or otherwise have access to usage data on videos embedded on the Site as described in YouTube’s Privacy Policy.
