The Information We Collect and How We Use It

Some of the information we collect via the Web Site is gathered and maintained through the use of “cookies” and other methods. A “cookie” is a small file that is saved on your computer and that contains information about you, such as your user name and password. As a result, we are able to (a) recognize you when you access the Web Site so that you do not have to re-enter your personal or other information each time you visit the Web Site, (b) customize and personalize the content we make available to you, (c) maintain the “state” of your current visit (e.g., to maintain a list of your most recent searches or the items in your “shopping basket”), and (d) alert you to new features.

In addition we may collect certain non-personal data in connection with the Web Site. For example, we may collect information on the browser that you use to access the Web Site, the operating system that you are running, what items you clicked on the applicable web page, how long you viewed a certain page, and information about the web site you accessed immediately before you accessed the Web Site. We may aggregate your non-personal data with the non-personal data of our other users or other non-personal data collected offline. We also collect and analyze general traffic patterns within our Web Site to help maintain the flow and content of the Web Site, and we may use some or all of this anonymous aggregated information to support our commercial activities or for any other reason.

We may from time to time send information and/or offers to the email address you provide to us. If you prefer not to receive such email, please follow the procedures set forth at the end of each such e-mail explaining how to have your email address “removed” from the applicable email list. Alternatively, you may contact us at <> to “opt-out” of receiving such email.

We do not collect any personally identifiable information except as set forth in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise permitted by you. Except as specified in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise authorized by you, we will not disclose your personally identifiable information to any third party, unless required to do so by law; provided, however that we may (a) use such information to support our customer satisfaction initiatives, (b) from time to time disclose such information to selected third parties offering products in which you may be interested, and (c) we may disclose such information to other chambers of commerce provided that such third party agrees to comply with the provisions of our Privacy Policy with respect to the use of your information.
