This Website is not directed to or intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly solicit, collect or maintain information from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Website is targeted to attract anyone under 13. We also do not send email correspondence to anyone who advises that they are under the age of 13. If we later obtain actual knowledge that a user is under 13 years of age, we will take steps to remove that user's Personal Information from our systems. If you are the parent or guardian of a child whom you believe has disclosed Personal Information to us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may delete and remove such information from our system.
A cookie is a computer file consisting of letters and numbers which is installed on your device when you visit a website and which allow our Website to recognise a user and retain that user's preferences when they return. Cookies do not collect data, instead they serve to act as unique identifiers, or information caches, which can be used to identify a user's preferences, settings or previous activity and which in turn enable website operators to provide an optimised, improved and more individualised browsing experience.
Use of our Website may also result in Local Shared Objects (LSOs), including ‘flash cookies', being stored on your device. LSOs have a similar function to cookies, but are designed to function with specific applications (such as Adobe Flash Player). We may use local storage facilities in order to provide you with both online and offline functionality for our Website. For example, local storage may be used to store Website content on the device for access when the device is not connected to the internet.
Some internet browsers will temporarily store website data using a process known as ‘caching'. The creation of a website cache may improve loading speed and responsiveness and, in some cases, provide offline functionality. Most internet browsers support HTML 5 which permits website caching. Website caching typically requires greater storage capacity than cookies which, in turn, may provide greater improvements in speed and functionality.
Cookies distinguish you from other users of our Website. For example, we use them to keep track of the contents of your shopping cart once you have selected an item, to store delivery addresses if the address book is used. This allows us to optimise your individual browsing experience and improve our service to you. Our partners, including Shopify, Paypal and Google Analytics, drop cookies on your device when you browse our Website and make purchases.
How do I disable cookies?
While we recommend that you allow the installation of cookies on your browser or device when using our Website, you are not obliged to do so and you can choose to disable cookies and LSOs by adjusting the settings for your browser or device. You can also delete those which already exist using the settings on your browser and/or device (however, this may interfere with your use of our Website and adversely affect your browsing experience).
We use third party services, such as Google Analytics, to track and analyze online behavior data of users. These services may help inform, optimize, target and serve ads based on your visits to our Website. We do this to better understand how you use the Website and Service, with a view to offering improvements for all users, and to tailor our business and marketing activities accordingly. If you would like to opt out of Google Analytics, please download and install the browser plugin at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Users can also opt out of third party interest based advertising by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative's deactivation website at www.networkadvertising.org/choices/.
