Non-Personal And Automatically Collected Information
We automatically collect certain aggregate information and other information when you visit the Absolue Diamond Parfums’s website. When in aggregated form, this information does not relate to a single identifiable visitor. It tells us such things as how many users visited the Website and the pages accessed. Collecting this information helps us tailor our Website to our visitors.
Also, we may collect certain non-personal information at the individual level, although it typically is not associated with Personal Information. For example, when you visit the Website to browse, read or download information, we automatically collect standard computer information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses. We generally do not link this standard computer information to anything that will allow us to identify users unless to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service, to protect our service, sites, users or others, or for certain online advertising activities relating to our users, including to measure the effectiveness of our advertising.
In addition, we also may collect other information, including through “cookies,” “device matching,” “device identifiers” and/or “web beacons,” as explained below.
Cookies: We, our service providers, and third parties such as online network advertisers may collect information using cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that any website may transfer to your browser that are then stored in your computer system. Cookies are returned to the website that deposited them when a visitor returns to that site. Cookies tell us, for example, whether a user is a first-time visitor or has visited the Website before and what areas of the websites are of greatest interest to the user. The deposit of cookies by the Website may enhance your online experience by allowing us to save your preferences for your next visit. Our cookies may also measure the general activity on the Website, which allows us to determine which areas and features are most popular. This information allows us to make improvements to our Website.
Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. You can, however, reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. If you choose to decline cookies, some of the functionality of the Website may be impaired.
Device Identifiers: We also may automatically collect an IP address or other unique identifier information (“Device Identifier”) for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, “Device”) you use to access the Website. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a website or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. We may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Sites, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends, track users' web page movements, help identify you and your shopping cart, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use and we may share this information with third parties for the foregoing purposes.
Device Matching: Data collected from a particular browser or device may be used with another computer or device that is linked to the browser or device on which such data was collected for the purpose of establishing profiles, analytics and delivering ads and/or other content or services to you, across such devices on the Website or on other third party websites or applications that you visit, or it may be transferred to third parties such as online network advertisers for those purposes. For example, we may use the data we receive to determine the probability that a desktop web cookie and a mobile device belong to the same user and may share this device matching information with third parties to enable them to provide advertising, analytics or other services.
Web Beacons: Web beacons, also known as “clear gifs,” “one-pixel gifs,” “web bugs,” “Internet tags” or “pixel tags,” are small graphic images on a website or in an e-mail that allow us and third parties to monitor the activity on the Website or to make cookies more effective. Web beacons allow us, our service providers and other third parties to gauge and enhance the effectiveness of our marketing on our Website or on third party websites or other channels by transmitting information about whether you follow links in our e-mails or Website, or links in third party websites, and by gathering information about the sites you visit before and after visiting our websites. We use log files to store the data that is collected through Web beacons.
We incorporate commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your Personal Information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, mobile networks, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use our Website and provide us with your information at your own risk. When you place orders or access your account information, we use our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which encrypts all information you enter before it is sent over the Internet to us.
