Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies. You can set your browser not to accept cookies, or to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the opportunity to opt out. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to access your account information and/or use our Services. For example, if you turn off certain cookies or refuse them, you will not be able to make purchases on the Site. Our Site is not designed to respond to “do not track” signals received from browsers.
We also use “pixel tags” (also called “web beacons” or “clear gifs”), which are tiny graphic images on our Site and emails, and other related tracking technology. Pixel tags are also used, for example, to obtain the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time that the page containing the beacon was viewed, and the type of browser used to view the page, the state and Zip code of our Site’s users. We work with service providers that help us track, collect, and assess this information.
These tracking technologies help us to assess our customers’ online behavior, and to measure the effectiveness of our Site. We use information collected through these automated means to customize our users’ visits to our Site, deliver content and advertisements tailored to our users’ interests, manage our Services, and other related business purposes. To the extent required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent before collecting information using cookies or similar automated means.
