What are cookies?
In order to provide and improve the Site, where permitted by applicable law we use small files commonly known as “cookies”. A cookie is a small amount of data which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (your “device”) from the Site and is stored on your device’s browser or hard drive.
Where permitted by applicable law, we also use pixel tags and other tracking technologies. These technologies may be used to determine the ads you see on the Site and also on other sites.
Cookies and other tracking technologies on this Site
Cookies, pixel tags, and other tracking technologies help us provide services to you (e.g. the shopping cart facility), better understand your shopping needs and preferences, tell us which parts of the Site you have visited, facilitate and measure the effectiveness of our advertisements, and provide consistent and personalized services and experiences.
These technologies may be used to collect “click-stream data,” which includes information about your visit, including the pages you view, the features you use, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with the Site and our online ads.
Pixel tags in our emails may be used to track your interactions with those messages, such as when you receive, open, or click a link in an email message from us.
Where permitted by applicable law, we also work with third-party companies that use their tracking technologies (including cookies and pixel tags) on the Site in order to provide tailored advertisements on our behalf and on behalf of other advertisers across the internet. These companies may collect information about your activity on the Site and your interaction with our advertising and other communications and use this information to determine which ads you see on third-party websites and applications. For more information about this practice and to understand your options including how to opt out of receiving these tailored advertisements, please visithttp://www.aboutads.info.
The cookies used on this Site can be categorized in four ways: (1) cookies that are strictly necessary; (2) cookies that assist with the performance of the Site; (3) cookies that record functionality requests; and (4) targeting or behavioural tracking cookies. Each of these is further explained below.
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the Site. Without these cookies, services that you have requested, such as making purchases online, cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing purposes.
These cookies collect information about how you use this Site. For example, they may collect information on which pages you visit most often or if you received an error message from one of the pages on this Site. These cookies do not directly collect information that identifies you. When you provide information that identifies yourself, we may use these cookies to provide relevant information on the Site based on information that you have provided and your activities on the Site.
These cookies allow the Site to remember the choices that you make, such as your user name, language preference, or the region that you are in. The Site then uses that information to provide enhanced features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes that you have made to text size, font, and other parts of the Site that you can customize. They do not gather any information about you that could be used for advertising or remembering where you have been on the Internet.
These cookies collect several pieces of information about your browsing habits. They remember that you have visited this Site and may share this information with other organizations, such as advertisers. They do this in order to provide you with targeted advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. Without these cookies, online advertisements that you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.
