How does Pure Powders collect information online?
Pure Powders may collect information in two ways:
- Personal Information You Submit: Pure Powders collects personal information that you enter into any data fields on the Pure Powders Web Site. For example, you may submit your name, postal address, e-mail address, and/or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for Pure Powders programs, contact Pure Powders customer service, or respond to Pure Powders surveys. To protect your privacy, you should not provide Pure Powders with any information that is not specifically requested.
- Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information: The Pure Powders Web Site may collect information about your visits to the Pure Powders Web Site without you actively submitting such information. Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your computer’s hard disk by a Web site. Web beacons (also referred to as GIF files, pixels or Internet tags) help Pure Powders recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to Pure Powders Web Sites some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the Web site you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of the Pure Powders Web Site easier by allowing Pure Powders to provide better service, customize the Pure Powders Web Site based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Pure Powders Web Site. Certain features of the Pure Powders Web Site may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identify you without additional identifiable information and Pure Powders will not connect additional identifiable information, with information collected through the use of such tracking technologies. With respect to limiting or disabling tracking technology, please see the below “What choices do I have about how Pure Powders collects and uses personal information about me?”
