INFORMATION AUTOMATICALLY GATHERED WHEN YOU VISIT A SITE

Our web servers automatically create log files for each user who accesses our Sites. These “access logs” allow us to enhance the Sites for all users. The access logs do not record a user’s name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, or any other personally identifying information. Instead, these log files may contain some or all of the following information: the date of the visit; the time and length of the visit; the path taken through the Sites; the browser being used; your location, the Internet Protocol Address (IP Address), as may be assigned by your Internet Service Provider, of the machine accessing our Sites; and any errors encountered.

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) to collect certain information relating to your use of the Sites. Google Analytics uses “cookies” to help the Sites analyze how users use the Sites. We may also use Google Analytics Advertising Features to provide you with interest-based advertising based on your online activity. To learn more about interest-based advertisements and your opt-out rights and options, visit the Digital Advertising Alliance and the Network Advertising Initiative websites (www.aboutads.info and www.networkadvertising.org). Please note that if you choose to opt out, you will continue to see ads on our Sites, but they will not be based on how you browse and shop.

If you do not wish to accept a cookie from our servers, you can adjust the settings on your browser accordingly. Refusing to accept cookies from our server may result in some limits on the benefits that we can provide to you via the Sites.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

Consistent with the requirements of COPPA, on any child-targeted site, or in any instance where we ask for age and determine that the user is under the age of 13, we will ask for a parent’s or guardian’s email address before we collect any personal information from the child. We do not use parent or guardian email addresses provided for parental consent purposes to market to the parent or guardian, unless the parent has expressly opted into email marketing or has separately registered with our Sites.

DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION

We may occasionally conduct online surveys, sometimes in association with a contest or offer. These surveys may ask you for demographic information such as ZIP code, age, or education level. This information is used in an aggregate form to help us understand our audiences and improve our services. Demographic and profile information may be shared with selected third-party organizations, only on an aggregate basis, to describe the nature of our online audiences, as well as to further understand our audience’s behavior so that we may better serve them.
