We collect personal information because it helps us provide and improve our services, and to allow us to better serve our customers. In addition, your personal information helps us communicate to you our latest services and information and events about which you might like to hear. We also may correlate your personal information with information from other sources. For example, we may cross-check the personal information you provide to us against information that might be otherwise available through other entities in order to prevent or detect fraud.
We collect information in three primary ways:
Please do not supply the following to us:
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
Even if you do not submit personal information through the Sites (but visit same), we may gather navigational information about where visitors go on the Sites and information about the technical efficiencies of our Sites and services (i.e., time to connect to the Sites, time to download pages, etc.). Collecting this information allows us to see which areas of our Sites are most visited and helps us better understand the user experience. Additionally, collecting this information helps us improve the quality of the Sites by recognizing and delivering more of the features, areas, and services our visitors prefer. In this process of gathering information, we may collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information (for example, domain type, browser type and version, service provider and IP address, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click-stream data).
We may also create and use electronic records to compile statistics about how our visitors collectively interact with our Sites.
Cookies Used By Our Service Providers And Vendors
You should review the privacy and cookie policies of any third-parties to which the Sites link, including but not limited to, Facebook®, Twitter®, Instagram® or LinkedIn®, to learn more about the cookies that are used in connection with the above, as well as the information obtained.
The above websites and cookies may change from time to time as we use different vendors or services providers to provide some or all of the services offered or provided by the above services and websites, or additional services we decide to include. While we periodically update our list of such vendors and service providers, the above list may not be complete at any given time.
A “device identifier” is a mechanism whereby we may automatically collect an IP address, mobile advertising identifier or other unique user identifier information for the computer, mobile or other device being used to access the Sites or third-party websites to which we may link for advertising purposes. A device identifier attaches a number that is automatically assigned to your computer or device that identifies it, similar to a cookie. We may use the device identifier to administer the Sites, help diagnose problems, analyze trends, track a user on the Sites, identify a user shipping cart or purchase preferences, deliver advertising or obtain general demographic data. Most computers and mobile devices will allow you to turn off, block or delete device identifiers.
A web “server log” is a record of activity created by a computer that delivers certain webpages to your browser. Certain activities that you perform on our Sites may record information in server logs. For example, if you enter a search term into a search box located on the Sites, the server log may record the search term, the link you clicked on to bring you to our Sites and/or information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser.
Search Queries on Our Sites:
We may provide you with options to search for information on our site. If you enter information in a search query box, we may store that information and we may aggregate that information with other information we may have about the browser and/or IP address from which the search query originated.
Social Media Platforms:
We may link to certain Company social media platforms on Facebook®, Twitter®, Instagram®, LinkedIn®, or other platforms. When you engage with our content at or through these social media platforms, you may be asked to share certain information about these interactions with us. Please review the privacy policies/notices and privacy settings with each such social media platform you use so you understand how this data and information may be used, and to choose your options for the sharing of such data and information.
We use the information we collect in a variety of ways. We use this information for everyday business purposes, including managing your business and our relationship and prospective relationship with you. We also use this information to provide the services described on the Sites.
Generally, using all of the above mentioned, and similar type tools, we may collect, aggregate, and use de-identified information from or about you such as data about the type of browser and operating system used, your geographical location, which webpages and social media pages you view, the time and duration of your visits to our Sites, the search queries you may use on the Sites and any other submissions you may make, whether you clicked on any items or links on the Sites, whether you have clicked on any links in any emails sent from us, or third-parties on our behalf, whether you have chosen to opt-out of certain services or information sharing, and whether you have viewed or ordered certain products or services. We may also use this information to respond to inquiries you have made, to provide information you have requested, or to address any issues you have raised.
We may also use the information we collect internally in our business for many business purposes, such as to: (i) provide the services you may seek; (ii) analyze trends and conduct research; (iii) provide support and respond to questions from our users, Sites visitors and customers; (iv) improve our Sites or services; (v) learn about users’ and customers’ needs; (vi) contact users for research, informational, and marketing purposes, including customizing our Sites and social media pages for you based upon your information and browsing habits; (vii) track traffic patterns and Sites usage; (viii) provide customer service and technical support; (ix) correlate information with other commercially available information to identify demographics and preferences to assist us and our customers in our research and marketing efforts; (x) provide specific relevant marketing, promotional, or other information to you; (xi) address information security and/or privacy practices, network functioning, engineering, and troubleshooting issues; (xii) investigate claims and/or legal actions, violations of law or agreements, and compliance with relevant applicable laws and legal process; (xiii) comply with law, or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with the law, or otherwise to disclose information to prevent fraud to reduce credit risks, to cooperate with police and other governmental authorities, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to the Sites, our partners or customers, or the public; and (xiv) process or engage in a sale of all or part of our business, or if we go through a reorganization or merger.
If you do not consent to the way in which we may use your personal information, please do not submit any personal information to us.
