Privacy Policy


Our cookie policy
In compliance with the European Union legislation, we inform you that our
website will store some information about your preferences on your own computer
inside a tiny file called a ‘cookie’.





A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store
on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to “remember”
your actions or preferences over time.





You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set
most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you
may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and
some services and functionalities may not work.





Most browsers support cookies, but users can set their browsers to decline
them and can delete them whenever they like. A third-party website called aboutcookies.org has
been setup to help you with instructions how you can do that on various
browsers.





We use cookies to:
1) Identify you as a returning user and to count your visits in our traffic
statistics analysis;
2) remember your custom display preferences;
3) Suggest any recent searches you’ve made on our site
4) Other usability features including tracking whether you’ve already given
your consent to cookies





Enabling cookies from our website is not strictly necessary for the website
to work but it will provide you with a better browsing experience.





The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and
the pattern data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any
purpose other than those described here.





There may also be other types of cookies created after you’ve visited our
website. We use Google Analytics, a popular web analytics service provided by
Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses cookies to help us to analyse how users use
the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website
(including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on
servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose
of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity
and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do
so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s
behalf. Google undertakes not to associate your IP address with any other data
held by Google.





Third Party Advertising
We may have third-party advertising companies serving ads to you when you visit
our website. These companies may store information about your visits to our
website and to other websites in order to provide you with relevant
advertisements about goods and services.





These companies may employ cookies and other identifiers to gather
information which measures advertising effectiveness. The information is
generally not personally identifiable unless, for example, you provide
personally identifiable information to them through an ad or an e-mail message.





Information Gathered by Third Party Advertisers
Cookies enable advertisers to learn about what ads you see, what ads you click,
and other actions you take on our site and other sites. This allows advertisers
to provide you with more useful and relevant ads. For example, if they know
what ads you are shown while visiting our site, they can be careful not to show
you the same ones repeatedly. They do not associate your interaction with
unaffiliated sites with your identity in providing you with interest-based ads.





We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party
sites. Advertisers and other third-parties (including the ad networks,
ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that
users who interact with or click on a personalized ad or content are part of
the group that the ad or content is directed towards (for example, readers in
the Pacific Northwest who read certain types of articles). Also, some
third-party cookies may provide them with information about you (such as the
sites where you have been shown ads or demographic information) from offline
and online sources that they may use to provide you more relevant and useful
advertising.





If you would like to learn more about what options you have about limiting
the gathering of information by third-party ad networks, you can consult the
website of the Network
Advertising Initiative
.





You can opt out of participating in interest-based advertising networks but
opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does
mean that the companies from which you opted out will no longer customize ads
based on your interests and web usage patterns using cookie-based technology.





Type and Purpose of Collection
We collect information at various points in the Website to facilitate its use
by our customers. Non-Personal Information: Upon accessing the Website, certain
non-personal information will be automatically collected without your knowledge
or consent, such as your IP address, location data (which is anonymous) and the
referring website (“Non-Personal Information”). We use Non-Personal Information
to examine our traffic and to view how our customers use the Website. This type
of information will not allow you to be personally identified. For example, we
use “cookies”, which contains only certain statistical information. You can
instruct your computer to inform you whenever a cookie is being sent, or you can
disallow cookies through your web browser. If you do choose to disallow
cookies, your experience on the Website may be diminished, or your ability to
choose some of the options on the Website may be limited.

Sharing Information
We will not sell, rent or disclose to outside parties the information we
collect, save and except that we may share the collected information with other
parties as follows:





(a) Affiliated Service Providers: We have agreements with various affiliated
service providers to facilitate the functioning of the Website, with whom we
may share the information we have collected. For example, we may share your

purchase. All administrative service providers that we use are required to have
the same level of privacy protection as we have, and therefore we expect that
your information will be handled with the same level of care that we employ.
Additionally, for example, we may use analytic or marketing services such as
Google Analytics, Google Adsense, Taboola, or RevContent, to which collection
you hereby unconditionally consent.





(b) Where required by law: We may share the collected information where
required by law, specifically in response to a demand from government
authorities where such demand meets the legal requirements.

business assets.
