Other Collected Information
IP Addresses and Related Data. The servers used to operate and provide our Website may collect data pertaining to you and the equipment, software, and communication methods you use to access the internet and our Website, including internet protocol (“IP”) addresses assigned to the computers and other devices from where you access the internet, your internet service provider (ISP), your device ID number, your approximate geographic location, your browser type, the pages you access on our Website, the websites you access before and after visiting our Website, the length of time you spend on our Website, date and time stamps, and clickstream data. We may use this information to administer our Website and its servers, to generate statistical information, to monitor and analyze Website traffic and usage patterns, to monitor and prevent fraud, to investigate complaints and violations of our policies, and to improve our Website’s content and the products, services, materials, and other content that we describe or make available through our Website. We may combine this information with personal data, other Collected Information, and information obtained from third parties. The suppliers we use to provide our Website may collect information about your visits to our Website and other websites.
Location Information. In addition to the approximate geographic location information collected as discussed above, we may collect more specific location information (e.g., zip code, city, or physical address) if you input that information while using the “Locator” functionality of the Website to find locations where you can buy our products and services.
Google Analytics’ Advertising Features. We may enable and implement the following Google Analytics Advertising Features: Remarketing with Google Analytics, Demographics and Interest Reporting, Segments, DoubleClick Campaign Manager Integration, and DoubleClick Bid Manager Integration. Remarketing with Analytics uses Google Analytics cookies to serve advertisements to you across the Internet based on your visits to the Website. Demographics and Interest Reporting uses a third-party cookie to collect information about our Website traffic by tracking users across websites and across time, which generates a report for us to better understand our Website users. Segments allows us to isolate and analyze subsets of Website users by sorting our Google Analytics data. DoubleClick Campaign Manager Integration and DoubleClick Bid Manager Integration allow us to view, analyze, and create remarketing lists using our DoubleClick Campaign data. To opt out of remarketing advertising provided through Google, to customize your ad preferences, or to limit Google’s collection or use this information, visit Google’s Safety Center and Google’s Ad Settings and follow Google’s personalized ad opt-out instructions. Opting out will not affect your use of the Website.
Google AdWords. We may use Google AdWords, an online advertising service provided by Google, to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet and sometimes on the Website. Google uses your Internet searches, cookies, and similar identifiers (e.g., pixel tags) to collect anonymous information about your visits to the Website and your interaction with our products and services to generate targeted advertisements to you on other websites that you visit across the Internet.
Advertising Networks, Personalized Advertising, Remarketing, and Retargeting. From time to time the Website may use or participate in advertising networks and related advertising services that are managed and provided by third-party advertising servers, advertising agencies, technology vendors, and research firms, including advertising retargeting services provided by Facebook (sometimes referred to the Facebook “tracking pixel”) and Google AdWords. These services collect anonymous information about your visits to and interactions with the Website and other websites and will use that information to target advertisements for goods and services. The information collected may be associated with your personal information. These targeted advertisements may appear on the Website or on other websites. Advertising networks often gather data about consumers who view advertisements to make inferences about a consumer’s interests and preferences, which enables their computers to deliver advertisements directly targeted to the consumer’s specific interests. This practice is often referred to as “online behavioral advertising.” For example, a third-party advertising network might collect the type of Internet browser you use, the type of computer operating system you use, the domain name of a website you visit, whether or not you visit specific pages of the Website and other websites, the location of your Internet service provider, the date and time of a visit to a website, and other interactions between you and a website.
If you have a Facebook account but do not wish Facebook to collect data relating to you via the Website, we suggest that you: (a) hide social media platform plug-ins using an ad blocker; (b) always log off completely from Facebook before visiting other websites and delete all related cookies; and, (c) where the option is available, disable the advertising services and networks operated by Facebook.
To change your preferences with respect to certain online ads and to obtain more information about third-party ad networks and online behavioral advertising, please visit the National Advertising Initiative Consumer opt-out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Program. Please remember that changing your settings with individual browsers or ad networks will not necessarily carry over to other browsers or ad networks. As a result, depending on the opt-outs you request, you may still see our ads from time to time.
You have the opportunity to comment on those social media platforms regarding our products and services. We reserve the right to post on our Website and social media pages any comments or content that you post on our social media pages. We will be held harmless and without liability for the results of any and all third-party reposts to any and all other locations, including the direct or assumed meaning regarding content from all social media websites.
