Each time you visit the Website, we may automatically collect certain types of Personal Information. For example:
- We may record your internet service provider’s address, your internet protocol or IP address, the web page from which you came, your web browser software, the type of handheld or mobile device used to link to the web page, and the language settings on your web browser;
- We may collect a record of your activity or your “clickstream” while visiting the Website;
- We may use web beacons, match scripts, pixel tags or similar technologies that allow us to know if a particular web page was visited, an e-mail opened, links in the email utilized or if the advertisements on the Website or other sites were effective. In some instances, these technologies may allow us to match activities with particular users; and
- We may also collect any information you enter, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number or debit card information.
Our Use of Information
We will use your personally identifiable information to interact with you directly. We may also use this information to enhance your customer experience, improve our customer service, and to curate specific offerings and advertisements that may be of interest to you. Your personally identifiable information will not be accessible to anyone other than our staff, business affiliates, or service providers. We will not sell or share your information to any person or entity that is not affiliated with our business or service to you. Note, however, we will share your information to the appropriate authority if ordered or otherwise required to do so by law.
We may use your non-personally identifiable information, collected from the Website about you, to analyze and manage our business. This information is aggregated, or combined, and collected from online and offline facilities and may be used to enhance our ability to communicate with you and to support business functions. We may share non-personally identifiable information with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for the Website and those of our business affiliates and service partners.
We periodically send email announcements to keep you informed of our special events, news and offers. If you do not wish to be contacted by us, simply click on the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of our email correspondence. You may also request that we stop future correspondence with you by emailing your request to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

You may also do any of the following by contacting us at email@example.com:
- See what data we have about you, if any;
- Change/correct any data we have about you; or
- Have us delete any data we have about you.
We only retain your personally identifiable information for as long as your subscription to the Website is active, or for a limited period of time as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which we have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law. Non-personally identifiable information may be retained indefinitely.
Do Not Track
Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. At the present time, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has not yet established universal standards for recognizable DNT signals and therefore, the Website does not recognize DNT.
The Website uses “cookies,” which are small pieces of information stored by your browser or other application on your computer’s browser or hard drive. The cookies are used to connect your computer with information stored about your online activity, searches, preferences and product purchases both within the same website visit and from one visit to the next on the Website and/or other websites. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive new cookies or how to disable cookies altogether. If you reject cookies, you may not be able to participate in certain activities or receive a promotion tailored to you. The Website does not control and does not guarantee the effectiveness of browser-based tools for managing cookies.
We or our partners may also use “Flash cookies” (also known as “local stored objects”) or other similar technologies. A Flash cookie is a small data file placed on a computer using Adobe Flash or similar technology that may be built into your computer or downloaded or installed by you to your computer. We use these technologies to personalize and enhance your online experience, facilitate processes, and personalize and store your settings. They also help us improve the Website by measuring which areas are of greatest interest to you. They may be recognized by other sites or by our marketing or business partners. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies and the cookie management tools provided by your browser may not remove Flash cookies. If you disable Flash cookies or other similar technologies, please be aware that you may not have access to certain features and services that make your online experience more efficient and enjoyable.
We use industry-standard security techniques on the Website to help protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information collected from you on the Website. However, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data while you are on the Internet.
Children’s Privacy – Under Age 13
We do not knowingly solicit or collect personally identifiable information online from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we learn that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information online without parental consent, we will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from our databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law). If you become aware of any personally identifiable information we have collected from children under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children’s Privacy – Under Age 18
Minors under 18 years of age may have the personally identifiable information that they provide to us via the Website deleted by sending an email request to email@example.com.
Our Website may contain links to other websites, including those of our business partners. While we seek to link only to websites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by other websites.
