However, while on our Website, you may be able to order and buy products, enter promotions, sweepstakes or other contests, participate in a survey, complete a questionnaire or other “information request” form, or otherwise communicate with us through the Website. Some personally identifiable information is collected automatically through use of cookies and similar data collection tools.  (See “Use of Cookies” below.)

All non-personally identifiable information we collect and all aggregated/compilations of data we create are our exclusive property. Nothing in this Privacy Policy limits our right to use any such non-personally identifiable or aggregated information in any way (including, but not limited to, monitoring user traffic patterns, analyzing and quantifying user preferences, improving the design and content of our Website, and enabling us to personalize your user experience) or prohibits us from sharing non-personally identifiable or aggregated information with third parties.

  • Business Providers; Unaffiliated Businesses: At times, we may provide products, services or offerings on our Website in cooperation with an unaffiliated third party, and we may share personally identifiable information that you provide in connection with any such products, services or offerings with the unaffiliated third party(ies) involved in your particular product, service or offering (collectively, “Business Providers”). For instance, when you express interest in products, services or other items that we offer (for example, by completing a request for or information regarding such services), we will share your request with the Business Providers with which we partner to offer you those products, services and other offerings. By electing to participate or otherwise expressing interest in any such product, service or offering conducted in conjunction with any Business Provider, you expressly authorize us to provide your personally identifiable information to those Business Providers.

Other than as set out above, you will receive notice and have the opportunity to withhold consent when personally identifiable information about you might be shared with unaffiliated third parties.

YOUR OPTIONS REGARDING PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to digital services that a visitor does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. If a digital service that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that digital service from collecting certain Personal Information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, we and many other digital service operators do not respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.
