Use of Personal Information for Marketing Purposes

We may use your Personal Information to provide you with marketing and informational content about our Website, products or services.  If you no longer wish to have your Personal Information used by us to contact you with marketing or informational content, you may opt out by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” or similar link in the most recent e-mail you received from us and by following the prompts that appear.  This opt-out does not apply to information we send to you in connection with a transaction between you and us (for example, an order confirmation).

Tracking and Do Not Track

Tracking involves the use of cookies, web beacons, or other embedded code or tracking technologies to collect, analyze and store information on a user’s behavior over time on multiple sites, including information on the sites visited, products viewed, products purchased and other online interactions.  Tracking information can be used to enable companies to make interest-based (behavioral) advertising available to users on multiple sites that they visit.

We do not currently collect Personal Information about your online activities over time and across third-party sites for tracking purposes.  In addition, we do not currently allow third parties to collect Personal Information through our Website that could be used by them to analyze and store information about your online activities over time and across third-party sites for tracking purposes.  Therefore, our Website does not respond to any “do not track” signals sent by your computer, browser or mobile device, and if your computer, browser or mobile device sends a “do not track” signal to our Website, our Website will not treat you differently from users who do not send such signals.

Facebook Pixel

We use an advertising service on Facebook called Facebook Pixel that helps us (1) measure and track the results of our advertising on Facebook, and (2) better target our advertisements on Facebook to new potential customers.  If you are a customer of ours, then, in connection with this service, we may provide your e-mail address to Facebook along with the e-mail addresses of our other customers, and Facebook uses this information to find other Facebook users with similar demographics and interests as indicated in the profiles and activities on Facebook of our customers generally, to help us better target our advertising efforts on Facebook to those other Facebook users.  You can opt out of certain Facebook advertising features by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out page at www.optout.networkadvertising.org/ and the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Assistance page at www.youradchoices.com/choices or by adjusting the privacy settings in your Facebook profile.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to track and analyze certain traffic and usage statistics regarding the use of our Website, such as the number of visitors to our Website, how visitors are navigating to our Website, visitors’ general geographic region information, how long individuals are visiting our Website, and information about the equipment individuals are using to access our Website (e.g., browser version and operating system).  Google Analytics may use a Google Analytics cookie and may collect your IP address or mobile device ID as part of this service (but neither we nor Google Analytics otherwise collects or processes any of your Personal Information in connection with our use of the Google Analytics services).  We use this traffic and usage information to gauge, internally, the effectiveness of our advertising efforts and to make improvements to our Website and our marketing and promotional efforts.

In addition, we use Google Ads (an integrated service with Google Analytics).  By enabling this feature, we permit Google to collect certain additional traffic and usage data using a Google Advertising cookie and other identifiers not tied to your Personal Information.  This information includes demographic information about our Website visitors and general information about our visitors’ interests, but does not identify our visitors individually.  In fact, we are prohibited by Google policy from using this information to try to identify individual users and from merging non-personally identifiable information obtained from Google with Personal Information we otherwise have about you without obtaining your separate consent.  We use the information collected through our use of Google Ads to segment our audience and to better target our advertising and marketing efforts.

For more information, please review the following:

You can opt out of our use of certain Google Analytics features by updating the “Ads Settings” in your browser (www.adssettings.google.com/authenticated) or mobile device (www.support.google.com/ads/answer/1660762#mob), by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out page at www.optout.networkadvertising.org/, or by visiting Google’s currently available opt-outs over the web at www.tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.

We may disclose Personal Information to our affiliates and to any contractors, service providers or other third parties who need to know such information to provide services that we request to support our permitted uses of your Personal Information.  For example, we may disclose certain of your Personal Information in connection with our use of Google Analytics (see the section above titled “Google Analytics”) or Facebook Pixel (see the section above titled “Facebook Pixel”), we may share certain of your Personal Information with our third-party advertisers, we may use a third-party cloud-hosting service provider to store certain of your Personal Information securely, and we may disclose certain of your Personal Information to a third-party provider of customer relationship management services.

We may disclose your Personal Information to comply with a court order or other legal process, including to meet law enforcement requirements or to respond to any government or regulatory request or audit, or to enforce or apply any contracts you have entered into with us, or if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of our customers or others.
