Personal Information Collected by Automated Means
We obtain certain personal information by automated means when you visit our websites, such as through cookies, web beacons, and
web server logs. The information we collect in this manner includes the IP address of the device you use to connect to the internet,
unique device identifier, browser characteristics, device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs,
information on actions taken on our site, dates and times of website visits, and the pages accessed. By collecting this information,
we learn how to best tailor our websites to our visitors and understand what products and services you might prefer. Both we and
others (such as our service providers) may collect personal information about our visitors’ online activities over time and across
Like many companies, we use “cookies” on our websites. Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when
you visit certain websites. Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular
measure activity on the site and determine which areas and features of our websites are the most popular.
Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to
disable existing cookies. Without cookies, however, you may not be able to take full advantage of all of our websites’ features. For
example, if you turn off certain cookies or refuse them, you will not be able to make purchases on our e-commerce website. Our
websites are not designed to respond to “do not track” signals received from browsers.
Certain pages on our websites and emails we send you contain “web beacons” (also known as internet tags, pixel tags, and clear
GIFs). Web beacons are used, for example, to obtain the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon
appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, and the type of browser
used to view the page. We also retain service providers who use web beacons to assess the effectiveness of our email communications
and learn what pages our visitors viewed.
We use information collected through these automated means for purposes such as (i) customizing our users’ visits to our websites,
(ii) delivering content and advertisements tailored to our users’ interests and the manner in which our users browse our websites, and
(iii) managing our websites and other aspects of our business. To the extent required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent
before collecting information using cookies or similar automated means.
We also may use third-party web analytics services, such as those of Adobe Analytics and Google Analytics, to measure the
effectiveness of our advertising and determine how visitors use our websites. These service providers’ tools, including cookies and
web beacons, allow us to collect information such as the state and ZIP code from which our visitors come and the IP addresses of our
visitors’ computers. To learn about data collected by Adobe Analytics and Google Analytics and your choices with respect to these
services, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may collect information about your online activities on our websites to provide you with advertising about products and
services tailored to your individual interests. We also may obtain information for this purpose from third-party websites and apps on
which our ads are served. This section of our Privacy Notice provides details and explains how to exercise your choices.
You may see certain ads on other websites and apps because we work with advertising partners (including advertising networks) to
engage in remarketing and retargeting activities. Our advertising partners allow us to target our messaging to users through
demographic, interest-based, and contextual means. These partners track your online activities over time and across websites and apps
by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of third-party cookies, web server logs, and web beacons.
They use this information to show you advertisements that may be tailored to your individual interests. The information our
advertising partners may collect includes data about your visits to websites and apps that participate in the relevant advertising
networks, such as the pages or advertisements you view and the actions you take on the websites or apps. This data collection takes
place both on our websites and on third-party websites and apps that participate in the ad networks. This process also helps us track
the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.
