You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use our Site. 


Device Data: We use device data, which is information concerning a device you use to access, use, and/or interact with the Site, such as operating system type and/or mobile device model, browser type, domain, and other system settings, the language your system uses and the country and time zone of your device, unique device identifier and/or other device identifier, mobile phone carrier identification, and device software platform and firmware information.

Information collected in the aggregate is not associated with you as an individual. We may share user information in the aggregate with third parties.


Other Tracking Technologies: We may supplement information you provide to us with information from other sources, such as information to validate and/or update your address, payment card and/or other demographic information.  This information is used to maintain the accuracy of information on our Site and for internal analysis.
