Social Media and Technology Integrations.
We offer parts of our Site through websites, platforms, and services operated or controlled by separate entities. In addition, we integrate technologies operated or controlled by separate entities into parts of our Site. Some examples include:
Analytics and Advertising.
As part of this process, we may incorporate tracking technologies (including cookies and pixel tags) on our Site in order to provide you with tailored advertisements across the Internet. These tracking technologies may collect information about your activity across time and services (including on our Site and other websites such as web pages you visit and your interaction with our advertising and other communications) and use this information to make predictions about your preferences, develop personalized content, compile reports and deliver ads that are more relevant to you on other websites (“Interest-based Advertising”). This information may also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns.
We also use audience matching services to reach people (or people similar to people) who have visited our Site or are identified in one or more of our databases (“Matched Ads”). This is done by us uploading a customer list to a technology service or incorporating a pixel from a technology service into our own Site, and the technology service matching common factors between our data and their data. For instance, we incorporate the Facebook pixel on our Site and may share your email address with Facebook as part of our use of Facebook Custom Audiences.
For further information on the types of tracking technologies we use on the Site and your rights and choices regarding analytics, Interest-based Advertising, and Matched Ads, please see the “Information Collected Automatically” and “Your Rights and Choices” sections.
Your Rights and Choices.
If you have an account with, you may request access to, updating of, or corrections of inaccuracies to any information you have submitted to us through your account by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may request certain information for the purpose of verifying the identity of the individual seeking access to his or her records.
You may also request deletion of information you have submitted to us through your account, but please note that we may be required (by law or otherwise) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives and we may also retain information that does not identify you (including information that has been aggregated or de-identified) about use of our Site and purchase of Products as permitted by applicable law.
With your consent, we may send marketing communication to you through various channels, including by email and physical mail.
You can opt out of receiving marketing emails from us at any time by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email or emailing us at email@example.com with the word UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject field of the email. Please note that even if you unsubscribe or opt-out, we may still send you transactional, order, Site and Product related communications (e.g., emails related to your orders or comments).
You can also opt out of receiving physical mail marketing communications by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After you opt-out or update your marketing preferences, please allow us sufficient time to process your marketing preferences. Unless otherwise required to process your requests earlier by law, it may take up to 5 business days to process your opt out requests in relation to receipt of electronic marketing materials such as emails, and up to 30 days for all other marketing-related requests.
Tracking Technology Choices.
Most browsers accept cookies by default. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to decline or delete cookies. If you use multiple browsers on your device, you will need to instruct each browser separately. Your ability to limit cookies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.
Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no industry consensus as to what site and app operators should do with regard to these signals. We do not monitor or take action with respect to “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms. For more information on “Do Not Track,” visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com. Please be aware that if you disable or remove tracking technologies some parts of the Site may not function correctly.
Analytics and Interest-Based Advertising.
You can opt out of the processing of certain data collected by Google Analytics, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. The companies we work with to provide you with targeted ads are required by us to give you the choice to opt out of receiving targeted ads. Most of these companies are participants of the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) and/or the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). For more information about Interest-based Advertising and to understand your options, including how you can opt-out of receiving behavioural ads from participating companies, please visit the DAA website opt-out at http://www.aboutads.info/choices, the DAA of Canada website opt-out at http://youradchoices.ca/choices, or the NAI opt-out at https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a participant, tracking technologies used on the Site may still collect data for other purposes including analytics. You may still see ads from us, but the ads from the participants with whom you opted out will not be targeted based on behavioral information about you and may therefore be less relevant to you and your interests.
Please note that your opt out only applies to the specific web browser you use so you must opt out of each web browser on each device you use. To successfully opt out, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser (see your browser’s instructions for information on cookies and how to enable them). Once you opt out, if you delete your browser’s saved cookies, you will need to opt out again.
To opt out of us using your data for Matched Ads, please contact us as set forth in the “Contact Us” section below and specify that you wish to opt out of Matched ads. We will request that the applicable technology service not serve you Matched ads based on information we provide to it. Alternatively, you may directly contact the applicable technology service to opt out.
We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any opt out options or programs, or the accuracy of any company statements regarding their opt out options or programs.
We implement reasonable administrative, technical and physical measures in an effort to safeguard the information in our custody and control against theft, loss and unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure. Nevertheless, transmission via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
Access to and Correction of Information.
We will correct, update and/or make our file of your information available to you within a reasonable time from receipt of your request to the contact details as set out in the “Contact Us” section. We will only withhold access where permitted by law.
Retention and Deletion of Information.
We will retain and process your personal data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which the information is collected, and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations under applicable law.
When we no longer need to use your personal information or retain it pursuant to legal obligations in order to exercise our legal rights, we will remove it from our systems and records or take steps to anonymize it so that you can no longer be identified from it in accordance with applicable law. When we delete information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives and we may also retain information that does not identify you (including information that has been aggregated or de-identified) about use of our Site and purchase of Products as permitted by applicable law.
The Site is not directed to children under 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information (as defined by the U.S. Children’s Privacy Protection Act, or “COPPA”) from children under 13. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe we have collected personal information from your child, contact us at email@example.com. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete the information. Additionally, if you are under the age of majority (typically 18 or 19 years, depending on your jurisdiction), you may not purchase any Products. We do not knowingly “sell,” as that term is defined under the CCPA, the personal information of minors under 16 years old who are California residents.
In most cases we will ask that you put your request in writing to us. We will investigate your complaint and will respond to you in writing as soon as reasonably possible. If we fail to respond to your complaint or if you are dissatisfied with the response that you receive from us, you might also have the right to make a complaint to the applicable privacy authorities. In Australia, this is the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (www.oaic.gov.au).
Additional Disclosures for California Residents.

The CCPA may classify our limited sharing with these contracted third parties as a “sale” of personal information. To the extent “sale” under the CCPA is interpreted to include advertising technology activities, we will comply with applicable law as to such activity. We disclose the following categories of personal information for commercial purposes: identifiers, demographic information, commercial information, internet activity, and inferences. We use and partner with different types of entities to assist with our daily operations and to manage our Site. Please review the “How We Share Information” section for more detail about the parties we have shared information with.

Right to Opt-Out of Sale.
We do not sell any of your personal information to third parties for profit. Like most online businesses, we do share some information with contracted third parties in order to provide better services and advertising to you. California law may classify our limited sharing with these contracted third parties as a “sale” of personal information, and we do afford you the option to opt-out of sharing this information. You may submit a request to opt-out by emailing us at email@example.com.
You can designate an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf. However, we will require written proof of the agent’s permission to do so and verify your identity directly.
