Please note that our online and email advertising-related vendors, including but not limited to Facebook, Google, and Twitter, may use pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs, or other similar technologies in connection with the Sites to help manage our online and email advertising campaigns and strengthen the effectiveness of such campaigns. For example, if a vendor has placed a unique cookie on your computer, the vendor may use pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs or other similar technologies to recognize the cookie during your visit to the Sites and to learn which of our online advertisements may have brought you to our Sites, and the vendor may provide us with such other information for our use.

To do so, these companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser (including through the use of pixel tags) or recognize an identifier associated with your mobile device. These companies may also use these technologies, along with Personal Information and other information they or we collect on the different devices you use, to recognize you across the devices you use, such as a mobile device and a laptop or other computer.

We use physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of information transmitted to us, including using SSL (“secure sockets layer”) technology for encryption and transmittal of your order information (including your credit card information). However, data transmission over the Internet unfortunately cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, even though we take every measure we can to control our data security, as well as yours.
