What Information is Collected
Our implementation of Universal Analytics supports Display Advertising which makes use of the third-party DoubleClick cookie to facilitate Remarketing with Universal Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, and Universal Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. Using Remarketing with Universal Analytics enables us to advertise online by allowing third-party vendors, including Google, to show our ads on sites across the internet. Universal Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting uses data from Google's interest-based advertising or 3rd-party audience data (such as age, gender, and interests) with Universal Analytics to help us better understand the visitors to our website so we can improve their experience. You may customize your Ads Settings in Google, or optionally opt-out of the DoubleClick cookie altogether.
When creating an account, you will be asked for some basic information such as name, contact information (including email address), and demographic information (including mailing address) which will be used to facilitate better service to you such as providing your order history. You may also checkout as a guest, in which case the same information is required to process the order, but an account will not be created for you to store, update, and manage your information. If at any time you enter your email address, including checking out as a guest, your email address is stored so that we can follow up with you even if you fail to complete the order. However, we provide an unsubscribe link in the follow up email so that you can remove your email address from our records if you wish.
