“Cookies” are small files that we transfer to your computer's hard drive or your web browser memory to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide convenience and other features to you,such as recognizing you as our customer. “Clear gifs” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and may be used to track the online movements of web users or to let us know if you have opened an email that we sent you.
Examples of the information we collect and analyze in this manner include the IP address used to connect your computer to the Internet; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; your behavior on our Website, including the products and merchants you view or searched for, as well as the URL you come from and go to next (whether this URL is on our site or not); cookie number; and participating merchants you visit. The cookies and clear gifs that we use do not contain and are not tied to personally identifiable information about you.
You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on our Website.
