We may employ cookie technology to store and sometimes track information about the users of the Site. Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a web site. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related web pages.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change your browser to prevent the browser from accepting cookies. If you reject cookies, you may still use the Site, but your ability to use some areas or functions of the Site may be limited.
We may use web beacons (small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of web sites), and auditing software and/or similar technologies to track page views and entry and exit points to and from the Site. Any data collected will only be used in an aggregate form and will not contain any Personal Information, as that term is defined below.
TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED
Through the use of cookie technology or otherwise, we may track and collect information about your computer and software when you visit the Site. This information may include: (i) your IP address; (ii) domain server; (iii) type of computer; (iv) type of web browser; (v) access times; and (vi) referring web sites addresses (collectively “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you. Traffic Data assists us to design and arrange our web pages in the user-friendliest manner and to continually improve the Site to better meet the needs of users.
In order for you to access certain portions of the Site and/or participate in certain online activities (such as blogs, surveys, promotions (e.g., sweepstakes and contests), printing e-coupons and placing online orders), we may require you to provide us with information that personally identifies you, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address and home and/or business telephone numbers (“Personal Information”). You may also be required to provide a username and password. You can select any user name you want, except that your user name cannot be an impersonation, the same or confusingly similar to a famous trademark or service mark, or be a term that is offensive in any way. You may, but are not obligated to use your own name. If you do use your own name, you consent to it being passed to others by use of the functions of the Site. The Company reserves the right to reject or remove any username that does not meet applicable standards. If you communicate with us by e-mail or otherwise complete online forms or the like, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.
You may choose not to provide us with any Personal Information. In such an event, you can still access and use much of the Site. You, however, will not be able to access or use those portions of the Site or participate in online activities that require your Personal Information.
When you participate in online activities at the Site, you may be subject to additional terms and conditions.
