Through these automated collection methods, we obtain Google Analytical Data, which is a log of the links and other content on which a visitor clicks while browsing a website.

While you can change your cookies settings in your browser, please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of our Website.

In addition, we may use local shared objects to collect and store information about your preferences and how you interact with our Websites and Apps. These technologies help us recognize you, customize or personalize your shopping experience, store items in your online shopping cart between visits, and analyze the use of our services and solutions to make them more useful to you.

These technologies also allow us to aggregate demographic and statistical data and compilations of information, which may include personal information, and provide this information to our business partners and service providers that provide products and services to us.

The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons to help us analyze your use of our Website.

We also may obtain information for this purpose from third-party websites on which our ads are served. This section of our Policy provides details and explains how to exercise your choices.

You may see our ads on other websites because we use third-party ad networks, such as Facebook. Through such ad networks, we can target our messaging to users through demographic, interest-based and contextual means.

We do not disclose personal information we collect about you, except as described in this Policy. We may share personal information with service providers who perform services on our behalf.

We also may share your personal information with our affiliates and joint marketing partners for the purposes described in this Policy.

We may release your personal information if we are required to do so by law or court order, to enforce or apply our Terms of Use or if we believe in good faith that such release is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of our company, customers, affiliates, or others.

How We Protect Personal Information

We enforce commercially reasonable security measures online and in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse, disclosure, or alteration of personal information provided to us.
