We may ask you to submit personal information in order for you to benefit from certain features (such as newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers, or order processing) or to participate in a particular activity (such as sweepstakes, surveys, or other promotions). You will be informed of which information is required and which information is optional.
We may combine information you submit with other information to provide better service to you, customize the Service based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Service for your use. We may combine personally identifiable information with passively collected information in order to personalize offers and the Service for you (for example, combined information may allow us to recommend products or features to you based on what you have liked in the past). We also have a direct relationship with the following ad technology partners who may have information about you that may be used to personalize the advertisements you receive when using our Service:
Unless we specifically request or invite it, we ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive personal information (e.g., health insurance numbers, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or philosophical beliefs, health, sex life or sexual orientation, criminal background, trade union membership, or biometric or genetic data for the purpose of uniquely identifying an individual) on or through the Service or otherwise to us.
We and our service providers may also automatically collect and use information in the following ways:
- Through your browser: Certain information is collected by most browsers, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Mac), screen resolution, operating system name and version, and Internet browser type and version. We may collect similar information, such as your device type and identifier, if you access the Service through a mobile device. We use this information to analyze statistics and trends, and to ensure that the Service functions properly.
- Through email: We use email-tracking pixels, which are small image files embedded within an email, that allow us to understand your engagement with our emails and to serve you interest-based advertising.
- IP address: Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider. An IP address is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user visits the Service, along with the time of the visit and the pages visited. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many online services. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating Service usage levels, diagnosing server problems, and administering the Service. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address.
- Device Information: We may collect information about your mobile device, such as a unique device identifier, to understand how you use the Service.
