About Our Ads
We use common tracking technologies.
We collect personal information about users over time and across different websites when you use this website or service. We may also have third parties that collect personal information this way. To do this, we use several tracking tools. Our vendors may also use these tools. These may include browser cookies and device identifiers. We may also use web beacons, flash cookies, and similar technologies.
We may use tracking technologies for a variety of reasons.
We may use tracking tools:
- To recognize new or past customers.
- To store your password if you are registered on our site.
- To improve our website.
- To serve you with interest-based or targeted advertising (see below for more on interest-based advertising).
- To observe your behaviors and browsing activities over time across multiple websites or other platforms.
- To better understand the interests of our customers and our website visitors.
We may engage in interest-based advertising.
We and third parties we work with may display interest-based advertising using information gathered about you over time across multiple websites or other platforms. This might include apps.
Interest-based advertising or “online behavioral advertising” includes ads served to you after you leave our website, encouraging you to return to this or another of our sites. They also include ads we think are relevant based on your shopping habits or online activities. These ads might be served on websites or on apps. They might also be served in emails, if you have agreed to receive commercial email. We might serve these ads, or third parties may serve ads. They might be about our products or other companies’ products.
How do we gather relevant information about you for interest-based advertising?
To decide what is relevant to you, we may use information you make available to us when you interact with us, our affiliates, and other third parties. We gather this information using the tracking tools described above. For example, we or third parties might look at your purchases or browsing behaviors. We might look at these activities on our platforms or the platforms of others, for example, when you purchase our products or interact with us on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter or Amazon.
You can control certain tracking tools.
Your browser may give you the ability to control cookies. How you do so depends on the type of cookie. Certain browsers can be set to reject browser cookies. To control flash cookies, which we may use on certain websites from time to time, you can go here. Why? Because flash cookies cannot be controlled through your browser settings.
Our Do Not Track Policy: Some websites have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We are not currently able to respond to those signals. If you block cookies, certain features on our sites may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.
Options you select are browser and device specific.
