Cookies are small data files stored on your computer or device at the request of a Web site. A cookie assigns a unique numerical identifier to your Web browser, and may enable us to recognize you as the same user who was at our Services in the past, and relate your use of the Services to other information about you, such as your Services usage information and Personal Information. Cookies may also be used to enhance your experience on the Services (for example, by storing your username so you can log in easily, keeping you logged into the web site after you have provided your password, and storing the contents of your shopping cart as you browse) or to collect general usage and aggregated statistical information and detect and prevent fraud. Most browsers can be set to detect cookies and give you an opportunity to reject them, but refusing cookies may, in some cases, inhibit or preclude your use of the Services.
A pixel tag (also known as a “clear GIF” or “web beacon”) is a tiny image – typically just one-pixel – that can be placed on a Web page or in our electronic communications to you in order to help us measure the effectiveness of our content by, for example, counting the number of individuals who visit us online or verifying whether you’ve opened one of our emails or seen one of our Web pages.
We maintain a presence on social networking and blogging platforms, some of which are operated by third parties.

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” (DNT) signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not change our tracking practices (which are explained in more detail under “SITE Usage Information” above) in response to DNT settings in your web browser.Our third party partners, such as Google Analytics, collect information about your online activities over time and across our Services and other online properties. These third parties may not change their tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser and we do not obligate these parties to honor DNT settings. We utilize Google Analytics for our web analytics and you can opt out of your Services usage data being included in our Google Analytics reports by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Neither the Company nor any of its Web services are designed or intended to attract children under the age of 13. We do not collect Personal Information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13.
While we endeavor to protect the security and integrity of sensitive Personal Information collected via the Services, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that any information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely error-free or safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. We do not warrant or represent that any Service’s level of security meets or exceeds any particular standard, and any information you submit via the Services is at your own risk. If you correspond with us by e-mail, text message, or using Web forms like a “contact us” feature on our Services, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third party could view the information you send in transit by such means. We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission. If at any time during or after our relationship we believe that the security of your Personal Information in our care may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you. We will endeavor to notify you as promptly as possible under the circumstances. If we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail to the most recent e-mail address you have provided us.
The Services may contain links, banners, widgets or advertisements that lead to other Web sites. We are not responsible for these other sites, and so their posted privacy policies (not this Policy) will govern the collection and use of your information on them. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each Web site visited after leaving the Services to learn about how your information is treated by others.
If you are a natural person (a “Data Subject”), you may have certain rights in addition to those described elsewhere in this Policy.

Such rights may also include, where certain conditions are met:
the right to request access to the Personal Information we hold about you,
the right to have inaccurate information about you amended or updated,
the right to object to processing of Personal Information about you,
the right to withdraw consent at any time (where relevant),

We use the Personal Information collected from Data Subjects where it is necessary for us to perform under an agreement with you (if we have one with you), for the uses provided in this Policy, and for our legitimate interests where your interests and fundamental rights as a Data Subject do not override those interests.

In addition, we use this Personal Information to send informational messages to you to the extent allowed by applicable law.
We will take reasonably necessary steps to ensure that where Personal Information of Data Subjects is shared with third parties, it is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy and applicable laws.We will endeavor not to keep Personal Information in a form that allows a Data Subject to be identified for any longer than is reasonably necessary for achieving the permitted purposes. At the end of the applicable retention period, we may destroy, erase from our systems, or anonymize Personal Information as part of such efforts. To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the Data Subject’s Personal Information, the purposes for which we process the Data Subject’s Personal Information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards designed to protect Data Subjects’ Personal Information, prevent unlawful or unauthorized processing of Personal Information, and prevent unauthorized disclosure of, or accidental loss of, or damage to, such information.We may process Personal Information in, and transfer Personal Information to, countries that may not guarantee the same level of protection for Personal Information as the country in which Data Subjects reside.Personal Information will also be processed by staff who work for us and operate outside the European Economic Area. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, the provision of administration and support services. All such staff are subject to reasonably appropriate confidentiality and security obligations.We restrict access to non-public Personal Information about Data Subjects to those of our employees and agents who need to know the information to enable us to provide services.We will only transfer Personal Information to third party service providers if they agree to comply with the physical, electronic and procedural safeguards described above, or if they put in place adequate measures themselves.
We may change this Policy from time to time. When we do, we will let you know by posting the changed Policy on this page with a new “Effective Date.” Such changes will apply to all user information. In some cases (for example, if we significantly expand our use or sharing of your Personal Information), we may also tell you about changes by additional means, such as by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address we have on file for you. In some cases, we may request your consent to the changes. The provisions contained herein supersede all previous notices or policies regarding our privacy practices and the terms and conditions that govern the use of this Services. Your continued use of our Services following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
