How we use “Cookies” and “Action Tags”
A "cookie" is a small data file sent to your
browser from a web server and stored on your computer. We have
relationships with third parties (such as PayPal for payment
transactions and MailChimp for email campaigns) who may receive
information directly from the cookies placed on your computer to assist
in analyzing our business and customers. For example, a cookie is used
in our gift shop shopping cart to keep track of items you select for
purchase and then process them for payment and shipment. Most web
browsers allow you to instruct the browser to prevent the use of
cookies. However, if you disable this feature, certain aspects of the
Web Site, such as the shopping cart, may not function properly.
They may also use a common web technology
called "action tags" (also called single pixel gifs or web beacons) to
track usage and web activity information. Action tags (including third
party tags) may be used to provide data to third parties for tracking
purposes. PayPal’s and MailChimp’s privacy policies are available at
their respective web sites.
