Categories of Collected Information; How We Gather Collected Information
There are several types of information that we collect from and about users of our Website.
Personally Identifiable Information. You can visit the Website without sharing personally identifiable information. However, you will be required to provide personally identifiable information in order to use certain features of the Website, for example, to register for an account and to complete an online purchase. If you want to open an account, your name, email and password are required. Otherwise, you decide what personally identifiable information you want to share with us. We will collect whatever you voluntarily provide, such as your name, email address, postal/physical address, telephone number, birthday, and payment information, as well as any information about any gift recipient that you provide to us.
Account and Profile Information. To create an online account you will need to submit your name, physical address, telephone number, and email address. The information you submit when first creating an account will be used to populate a profile within that account.
Mailing List Information. If you make a purchase from us or otherwise sign up or opt in to receive promotions from us, we will use the contact information you provide you to send you promotional materials and electronic communications. You may opt out of receiving promotional emails from us at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions contained in the applicable email (there is an Unsubscribe link located in the footer of all emails that we send). We may use third-party email providers to deliver these communications to you.
User-Generated Content. We will collect any comments, reviews, blogs, images, data, text, and other content that you create, post, or otherwise submit via the Website (collectively, "User-Generated Content"). We may use your name in connection with any reviews or other feedback that you elect to provide. Any user communications will not be considered or treated as confidential.
IP Addresses and Related Data. The servers used to operate and provide the Website may collect data pertaining to you and the equipment, software, and communication methods you use to access the Internet and the Website, including Internet protocol ("IP") addresses assigned to your computer, your Internet service provider ("ISP"), your device ID number, your approximate geographic location, your browser type, the pages you access on the Website, the websites you access before and after visiting the Website, the length of time you spend on the Website, date and time stamps, and clickstream data. AmerishMarket may use this information to administer the Website and its servers, to generate statistical information, to monitor and analyze Website traffic and usage patterns, to monitor and prevent fraud, to investigate complaints and violations of our policies, and to improve the Website content and the products, services, materials, and other content that we describe or make available through the Website. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information, other Collected Information, and information obtained from third parties for security reasons. The suppliers that we use to provide the Website may collect information about your visits to the Website and other websites.
Analytics. The Website may use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., including its Advertising Features, which are described at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3450482?hl=en, to collect information about your use of the Website, which information your web browser automatically sends to Google. This information includes the URLs of the websites that you visit and your IP address. Google may also set cookies or read preexisting cookies. This information is stored on Google's servers.
Google Analytics' Advertising Features and AdWords. We have enabled the following Google Analytics Advertising Features: Google Display Network Impression Reporting, Remarketing with Google Analytics, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. Google Display Network Impression Reporting uses the Google Analytics cookie to track our ad impressions and your interactions with those impressions, including the effectiveness of those ads, which generates reports for us to help us analyze our advertisements. Remarketing with Google Analytics uses the Google Analytics cookie to serve advertisements to you across the Internet based on your visit to the Website. Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting uses a third-party cookie to collect information about our Website traffic by tracking users across websites and across time, which generates a report for us to better understand our Website users.
We also use the Google AdWords service to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet and sometimes on this Website. Google uses your Internet searches as well as cookies (or other similar identifiers such as pixel tags) to collect anonymous information about your visits to our Website and your interaction with our products and services to generate targeted advertisements to you on other sites that you visit across the Internet.
To opt out of remarketing advertising provided through Google or to customize your ad preferences, visit Google's Ad Settings page at http://www.google.com/settings/ads. If you do not want Google to collect or use this information, visit Google's Safety Center at https://www.google.com/safetycenter/tools. Opting out will not affect your use of the Website.
Network Advertising. From time to time, we may participate in or use advertising networks, managed and provided by third-party advertising servers, advertising agencies, technology vendors and research firms. We may use these third-party advertising networks for marketing, advertising, and promotional purposes, as well as to serve advertisements to you. Advertising networks often gather data about consumers who view advertisements to make inferences about a consumer's interests and preferences, which enables their computers to deliver advertisements directly targeted to the consumer's specific interests. This practice is often referred to as "online behavioral advertising." For example, a third-party advertising network might collect the type of Internet browser you use, the type of computer operating system you use, the domain name of a website you visit, whether or not you visit specific pages of this Website and other websites, the location of your Internet service provider's presence, the date and time of a visit to a website and other interactions between you and websites.
To obtain more information about third-party ad networks and online behavioral advertising and to change your preferences with respect to certain online ads, please visit the National Advertising Initiative Consumer Opt-Out website at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices or the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Program website at http://www.aboutads.info. Please remember that opting out of online ads with one ad network and web browser does not necessarily carry over to any other ad network or web browser. As a result, depending on the opt-outs you request, you may still see our ads from time to time.
Social Media. The Website may allow you to connect and share information with various social media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest. These features may require us to implement cookies, plug-ins, and application protocol interfaces provided by those social media platforms.
We may share information that you provide us or that we may collect about your use of the Website with those platforms and that information will be subject to their privacy policies. For further information, we encourage you to review those platforms' privacy policies: at https://www.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy; at https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy; at https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en; at https://www.youtube.com/static?template=privacy_guidelines; and at https://about.pinterest.com/en/privacy-policy.
The Website may also use the advertising services and networks offered by those social media platforms to deliver advertising content. Use of these services requires social media platforms to implement cookies or pixel tags to deliver ads to you while you are logged into the platform. If you do not wish a social media platform to collect information relating to you via the Website, we suggest that you: (i) hide social media platform plug-ins using an ad blocker; (ii) always log off completely from the social media platform before visiting other websites and delete all related cookies; and (iii) where the option is available, disable the advertising services and networks operated by the social media platform. For example, you may opt out of Twitter's interest-based advertising by notifying Twitter through one of the methods it describes online: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20170405.
