• Personal Information You Provide to Us – We only have access to and collect
personal information (such as your name, date of birth, social security number,
credit card number, mailing or billing address, telephone number, or email address,
and email preferences (collectively, “Personal Information”) that you voluntarily
give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent your
Personal Information to anyone. We are the sole owners of the Personal Information
collected on this Site.

• Information Collected by Automated Means – Whenever you use the Site, we, as
well as any of our third-party advertisers and/or service providers, may use a variety
of technologies that automatically collect information about how the Site is
accessed and used (“Usage Information”). Usage Information may include, in part,
browser type, operating system, the page served, the time, how many users visited
the Site, and the website you visited immediately before the Site. This statistical
data provides us with information about the use of the Site, such as how many
visitors visit a specific page on the Site, how long they stay on that page, and which
hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. Usage Information helps us to keep the Site fresh
and interesting to our visitors and to tailor content to a visitor’s interests. Usage
Information is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific
and identifiable person, we treat it as Personal Information.

• Device Identifiers – In the course of collecting Usage Information we may also
collect your IP address, MAC Address or other unique identifier (each a “Device
Identifier”) for the computer, mobile device, Wi-Fi card, or other technology
(collectively, “Device”) you use to access the Site. A Device Identifier is a number
that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a web site or its
servers. Our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. When you
visit the Sites, we may view your Device Identifier. We use this information to
identify repeat visitors to our Site. We also may use this information to send you
targeted advertisements and to enhance the Site. We may associate your Device
Identifier with your Personal Information.
The technologies used on the Site, including Device Identifiers, to collect Usage Information
may include, without limitation:

• Cookies – Cookies are data files placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Site.
We may use cookies to collect and store certain information about you. We may use
both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent
cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them).

• Web Beacons – We may also include web beacons (also known as web bugs,
Internet tags, pixel tags, tracking pixels and clear GIFs) with the content and ads
that we deliver to you, which we will use to collect information regarding your
interaction with our content and ads. A web beacon is a transparent graphic image
placed on a web page or in an email, which indicates that a page or email has been
viewed or that an email has been forwarded. In addition, a web beacon allows third
parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that
downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which
the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of
browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party.
A web beacon may also tell your browser to get content from another server.
Cookies and web beacons (together, “Site Cookies”) may enable us to track and target the
interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Site, track user actions/behavior on our
Site and track the effectiveness of ads.


We also work with a company called ReachLocal, which assists us in advertising our products
and/or services. One of the products that we may purchase from ReachLocal is a retargeting
product, which enables ReachLocal to show you advertisements for our Site when you visit other
sites in the ReachLocal network or in third-party networks. ReachLocal is able to do this through
the use of cookies that are provided by ReachLocal through its third-party partners (“Advertising
Cookies”). The sole use of the Advertising Cookies is to show you advertisements for our Site;
they are not being used to target you in any other way. Moreover, ReachLocal does not link or
otherwise connect the information in the Advertising Cookies to any Personal Information that
you may have provided.

Please note that ReachLocal retains the ability to access all information that is retained in the
ReachLocal Platform for purposes of quality assurance and campaign assessment.
If you have any questions regarding ReachLocal and/or the Advertising Cookies, you are
encouraged to contact ReachLocal at [email protected].

and/or Google Analytics to understand how users use our site so as to enhance the user
experience on our Site. If you wish to opt-out of ReachLocal’s tracking technologies, go

Do We Share Your Information?

We will not trade, rent, share or sell your Personal Information to third parties unless you ask or
authorize us to do so.

Unless you ask or provide your consent to do so, we will not share your Personal Information
with any third party outside of our organization, other than with our service providers, including
as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order. Only employees who need the Personal
Information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted
access to Personal Information. The computers/servers in which we store Personal Information
are kept in a secure environment.

We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not
linked to any Personal Information that can identify any individual person.
We will disclose Personal Information when we believe in good faith that such disclosures (a)
are required by law, including, for example, to comply with a court order or subpoena, or (b) will
help to: enforce our policies; enforce contest, sweepstakes, promotions, and/or game rules;
protect your safety or security, including the safety and security of property that belongs to you;
and/or, protect the safety and security of our Site or third parties. In addition, if Borders &
Gerace or all of its assets are acquired, all of the data collected by us through the Site and
through other means and services provided by us would be among the transferred assets.

How to Opt-Out of Targeted Advertising

You can set most web browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to
block cookies, though either of those actions may affect the use of our Site. If you prefer to not
receive targeted advertising, you can opt out of some network advertising programs that use your
information. To do so please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) Opt-Out
Page: Please note that even if you choose to remove your
information (via opting out), you will still see advertisements while you are browsing online.
However, the advertisements you see may be less relevant to you and your interests.
Additionally, many network advertising programs allow you to view and manage the interest
categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories
help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive. The DAA Opt-Out Page
provides a tool that identifies its member companies that have cookies on your browser and
provides links to those companies’ pages where you can opt-out of receiving targeted
advertisements from companies.

While the Site does not currently respond to ‘Do Not Track’ signals submitted by your browser,
you can opt out of any of the Advertising Cookies at any time by simply
visiting to adjust your preferences on placement of
Advertising Cookies currently used in connection with ReachLocal’s remarketing product. You
