Some of the information we collect via the Web Site is gathered and maintained through the use of “cookies” and other methods. A “cookie” is a small file that is saved on your computer and that contains information about you, such as your user name and password. As a result, we are able to (a) recognize you when you access the Web Site so that you do not have to re-enter your personal or other information each time you visit the Web Site, (b) customize and personalize the content we make available to you, (c) maintain the “state” of your current visit (e.g., to maintain a list of your most recent searches or the items in your “shopping basket”), and (d) alert you to new features.
In addition, we may collect certain non-personal data in connection with the Web Site. For example, we may collect information on the browser that you use to access the Web Site, the operating system that you are running, what items you clicked on the applicable web page, how long you viewed a certain page, and information about the web site you accessed immediately before you accessed the Web Site. We may aggregate your non-personal data with the non-personal data of our other users or other non-personal data collected offline. We also collect and analyze general traffic patterns within our Web Site to help maintain the flow and content of the Web Site and we may use some or all of this anonymous aggregated information to support our commercial activities or for any other reason.
We may from time to time send information and/or offers to the email address you provide to us. If you prefer not to receive such email, please follow the procedures set forth at the end of each such e-mail explaining how to have your email address “removed” from the applicable email list. Alternatively, you may contact us at <[email protected]> to “opt-out” of receiving such email.
