Please note that we may use a third-party payment service to process payments made through the Services.

We have no control over, and are not responsible for, third parties’ collection, use, storage, transfer or disclosure of your Personal Information.

If you submit any Personal Information relating to other people to us or to our service providers in connection with the Services, you represent that you have the authority and appropriate consent to do so and to permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

How We Collect Provided Personal Information

We and our service providers collect Provided Personal Information in a variety of ways, including:

Through the Services : We collect Personal Information through the Services, e.g., when you sign up for a newsletter, create an account or make a purchase.

Offline : We collect Provided Personal Information from you offline, such as when you visit a store selling our products, attend a trade show, attend an event we sponsor, place an order over the phone or contact customer service.

From Other Sources : We can receive your Provided Personal Information from other sources, such as public databases; joint marketing partners; social media platforms; from people with whom you are friends or otherwise connected on social media platforms, as well as from other third parties. For example, if you elect to connect your social media account to your Services account, certain Personal Information from your social media account will be shared with us, which can include Personal Information that is part of your profile or your friends’ profiles.

How We Collect Automatically-Collected Personal Information

We and our service providers can collect Automatically-Collected Personal Information in a variety of ways, including:

Through your browser or device : Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your device, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, device performance benchmarks and capabilities, installed plugins, mouse clicks or cursor position, page scroll position, time spent on the services, pages visited, referral pages and keywords used if coming from a search engine, language, Internet browser type and version, the name and version of the Services (such as the App) you are using, and other anonymous traffic data. We use this information to ensure that the Services function properly and to personalize your experience while using the Services. For example, we may use and combine such information, in combination with IP address, to create a unique ID that identifies your browser or device to us with reasonable certainty. This unique ID enables us to track your activity on our Services and to display content that we believe will interest you based on such activity.

Through your use of the App : If you download and use the App, we and our service providers track and collect App usage data, such as the date and time the App on your device accesses our servers and what information and files have been downloaded to the App.

Using cookies : Cookies are pieces of information stored directly on the computer that you are using. Cookies allow us to collect information such as browser type, time spent on the Services, pages visited, language preferences, and other anonymous traffic data. We and our service providers use the information for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, display information more effectively, and to personalize your experience while using the Services, as well as for online tracking purposes. We can recognize your computer to assist your use of the Services. We also gather statistical information about the usage of the Services in order to continually improve the design and functionality, understand how the Services are used and to assist us with resolving questions regarding the Services.

If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer to your computer of a particular cookie (or cookies) from a particular site. You may also wish to refer to http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html . However, if you do not accept these cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of the Services. For example, we may not be able to recognize your computer and you may need to log in every time you visit the applicable Services.

For full details on how we use cookies and other technologies, please visit our Cookies Policy.

Using pixel tags and other similar technologies : Pixel tags (also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) may be used in connection with some Services to, among other things, track the actions of users of the Services (including email recipients), measure the success of our marketing campaigns and compile statistics about usage of the Services and response rates.

IP Address : Your "IP Address" is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). An IP Address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the Services, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. We use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels of the Services, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the Services.

Physical Location: We may collect the physical location of your device by, for example, using IP address, satellite, cell phone tower or WiFi signals. We can use your device’s physical location to provide you with personalized location-based services and content. In some instances, you may be permitted to allow or deny such uses of your device’s location, but if you choose to deny such uses, we may not be able to provide you with the applicable personalized services and content.
