Cookies

We use cookies and other technologies to passively collect demographic information, personalize your experience on our site and monitor advertisements and other activities. Cookies are small files downloaded to your computer to track movements within websites. We may link cookie information to personal information. Cookies link to information regarding what items you have selected for purchase at our store or pages you have viewed. This information is used to keep track of your shopping cart and make sure you don’t see the same ad repeatedly.

Also, we use cookies to deliver content specific to your interest and to monitor Website usage. We use outside ad companies to display ads. These ads may contain cookies. Our ad companies collect cookies received with banner ads, and Company does not have access to this information.

Most browsers are automatically set to accept cookies whenever you visit a website. You can disable cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you decide to disable your cookies, some areas of the Website will not function correctly. Please note that this privacy policy covers the use of cookies by Company only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Log Data

When you visit the Website, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website as Log Data. This Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting, the websites you visit, the search terms you use, and any advertisements on which you click. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider, the IP address will be different every time you log on. We use Log Data to monitor the use of the Website, the success of our service, and for the Website’s technical administration. We do not associate your IP address with any other personally identifiable information to identify you, except in case of violation of the Terms of Service.

Embedded content from other websites

Our website may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, social media posts, etc.) from other websites (including social media platforms). This kind of content behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We use analytics tools (like Google Analytics) for tracking visits to our website to continually improve our website and content. You can view the Google Privacy Policies at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Other Technologies

Other technologies used include clear GIFs. Clear GIFs also known as web bugs, beacons or tags, are small graphic images placed on a web page, web-based document, or in an e-mail message. Clear GIFs are invisible to the user because they are typically tiny (only 1-by-1 pixel) and the same color as the background of the web page, document or e-mail message. We do not use clear GIFs to collect personal information about you. However, we may utilize clear GIFs to capture statistical usage information for our web pages, features or other elements on a web page. We may correlate this information to a user to personalize user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on our web pages.

Information collected by tiers

We may receive data from third parties such as advertisers.
