IV. Cookies and Other User and Ad-Targeting Technologies.
to you. We also may work with Partners to help them advertise to you when you visit
other websites or mobile applications, and to help them perform user analytics.
These technologies may also be used to analyze how our Users interact with advertising
on our web site and elsewhere, and more generally, to learn more about our Users
and what services or offers you might prefer to receive. We describe some of these
1. Cookies. To enhance your online experience, we and our Partners use "cookies",
"web beacons" or other tracking technologies. Cookies are text files placed
technologies to understand Service and Internet usage and to improve or customize
the products, content, offerings, services or advertisements on our web site. For
to recognize you by name when you return to our web site), save your password in
password-protected areas, and enable you to use shopping carts on our web site.
content, offerings or services that may be of interest to you and to deliver relevant
advertising when you visit our web site. We or a third party platform with whom
we work may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser to enable you to
receive customized content, offers, services or advertisements on our web site.
These cookies contain no information intended to identify you personally. The cookies
may be associated with de-identified demographic or other data linked to or derived
from data you voluntarily have submitted to us (e.g., your email address) that we
may share with a service provider solely in hashed, non-human readable form.
We, our third party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms,
manage and measure the performance of advertisements displayed and delivered. This
also helps us, our service providers and Partners provide more relevant advertising.
2. Syncing Cookies and Identifiers. We may work with our third party partners "for
instance, third party ad platforms" to synchronize unique, anonymous identifiers
"such as those associated with cookies" in order to match our Partners' uniquely
coded user identifiers to our own. We may do this, for instance, to enhance data
points about a particular unique browser or device, and thus enable us or others
to send ads that are more relevant, match Users to their likely product interests,
or better synchronize, cap, or optimize advertising.
3. Disabling Cookies. Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. You may be
able to set your browser to warn you before accepting certain cookies or to refuse
some features of our web site may be difficult to use or inoperable.
We may work with certain third-party companies that use techniques other than HTTP
cookies to recognize your computer or device and/or to collect and record information
about your web surfing activity, including those integrated with our Services. Please
keep in mind that your web browser may not permit you to block the use of these
techniques, and those browser settings that block conventional cookies may have
no effect on such techniques.
4. Web Beacons. We and our third party partners may also use "web beacons"
or clear GIFs, or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on
our web site or in an email, to monitor the behavior and collect data about the
visitors using our web site. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users
who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor to our web
site. Web beacons may also be used to provide information on the effectiveness of
our email campaigns (e.g., open rates, clicks, forwards, etc.).
5. Mobile Device Identifiers and SDKs. We also sometimes use, or partner with publishers,
publisher-facing, or app developer platforms that use mobile Software Development
Kits ("SDKs"), or use an SDK with a mobile app that we offer, to collect Information,
such as mobile identifiers (e.g., IDFAs and Android Advertising IDs), and Information
connected to how mobile devices interact with our Services and those using our Services.
A mobile SDK is the mobile app version of a web beacon (see "Web Beacons" above).
The SDK is a bit of computer code that app developers can include in their apps
to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected, and related services or analytics
to be performed. We may use this technology to deliver or help our Partners deliver
certain advertising through mobile applications and browsers based on information
associated with your mobile device.
By visiting our web site you acknowledge, and agree that you are giving us your
consent to track your activities and your use of our web site through the technologies
described above, as well as similar technologies developed in the future, and that
we may use such tracking technologies in the emails we send to you.
Our unaffiliated Partners and third parties may themselves set and access their
own tracking technologies when you visit our web site and they may have access to
information about you and your online activities over time and across different
websites or applications when you use our web site. Their use of such tracking technologies
is not in our control and is subject to their own privacy policies.

6. California Residents -- Your California
California's "Shine the Light" law, Civil Code section 1798.83, requires
certain businesses to respond to requests from California customers asking about
the business' practices related to disclosing personal information to third parties
for the third parties' direct marketing purposes. Alternately, businesses may have
in place a policy not to disclose personal information of customers to third parties
for the third parties' direct marketing purposes if the customer has exercised an
option to opt-out of such information-sharing. We have such a policy in place.
