Information We May Collect
In addition, as is true of most websites, we may also gather non-personal identifiable information about your computer such as your IP address, browser type, referring/exit pages, and operating system. The Site uses a browser feature known as a cookie, which assigns a unique identification to your computer. The information collected from cookies allows us to provide better customer service to you and to improve features of our Site in a variety of ways, including by determining whether you have visited the Site in the past and which pages of our Site you have visited. Cookies (or other mechanisms) may also track cart activity to determine when a cart has been abandoned and used to send cart reminder messages via SMS.
We use third parties to improve our ability to identify visitors to our website. As part of this service, we may make available identifiers to these third parties including our visitors’ IP addresses, cookies, and hashed versions of email addresses captured from your visit. We, and third parties, use this data to obtain more information about our visitors and reach out to them through other channels, such as email and/or direct mail. You have the right to opt-out of this activity. To opt-out, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
