When you use this Site, the server automatically recognizes you by your "cookie". This cookie acts as a unique identifier, which allows us to personalize this Site to your specified interests and allows us to keep track of your activity on this Site. This information may be added to your personal profile and used to deliver offers and advertisements that are most relevant to your interests.

Furthermore, we retrieve certain information from your browser, including, without limitation, your browser type, platform-dependent information, requested document, referrer URL, date and time of your visit, your account information, purchase transaction detail (from third-party merchants on this Site) and the IP address associated with your transactions in the system. These categories of information, sometimes called "log-file data" or "clickstream data", are used to monitor this Site's performance, analyze traffic patterns and usage and ensure that the Site and the transactions performed through it function properly. This information also may be appended to your personal profile so that we may further tailor this Site to your interests and for us and our third-party advertiser partners to send offers to you based on such information.

Many of our third-party advertisers also utilize third-party cookies to identify you. We and third-party advertisers also currently use third-party cookies and clear pixel GIFs (also referred to as "web beacons") to measure page views on this Site, our third-party advertisers' websites and responses to e-mails. These devices allow us to identify unique visitors to this Site and your visits to our third-party advertisers' sites, and act as a counter for ongoing monitoring of this Site, e-mail and corresponding future transaction activity related to a specific offer for both us and our advertisers. These commonly used counters collect absolutely no personal information and, as always, this technology is only used to enhance this Site and make it more relevant to your personal interests and to measure the effectiveness of our e-mail and advertising campaigns.
