Cookies United, LLC Privacy Policy

Cookies United LLC (together with its affiliates "CU" "we," "us") is concerned about online privacy issues. CU has developed this Privacy Policy (the "Policy") to demonstrate our commitment to privacy and because we want you to understand our practices in connection with information that we collect through our website located at (together with any successor site(s) or any services provided on any such site(s) (collectively, the "Site")). By using the Site, you agree to the terms of this Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Policy, please do not use the Site. We reserve the right to change this Policy without prior notice. You can determine when this Policy was last revised by referring to the "Last Updated" legend at the top of this page. Any changes to our Policy will become effective upon our posting of the revised Policy on the Site. Use of the Site following such changes constitutes your acceptance of the revised Policy then in effect.

  1. What Types of Information Does CU Collect? CU collects two basic types of information: "Personally Identifiable Information" ("PII") and "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" ("Non-PII"). Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies an individual. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is aggregated information (including aggregated PII that does not identify an individual), demographic information, IP addresses and any other information that does not reveal a user’s specific identity.

    • a. Non-Personally Identifiable Information. When you visit and interact with the Site, CU and third parties with whom CU has contracted to provide services to it may collect Non-PII such as a catalog of the Site pages you visit. Non-PII is generally collected through the Site from five different sources: server log files, environmental variables, cookies, pixel tags as well as other similar technologies and information that you voluntarily provide.

      • i. Server Log Files. Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to the device that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Site, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visited. We and our service providers may use your IP address for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose problems with the Site's servers, and administering the Site.

      • ii. Environmental Variables. We and our service providers may also collect certain environmental variables, such as your MAC address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, OS version, browser, and browser version. These environmental variables are collected by most browsers, and can be used to optimize your experience on the Site.

      • iii. Cookies. We and our service providers may use "cookies" on the Site. Cookies are data that a web server transfers to your computer or device for recordkeeping purposes. Cookies can facilitate users' ongoing access to and use of a particular website. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a particular cookie, or cookies from a particular site, to your computer, however disabling of cookies may affect Site features or functions.

      • iv. Pixel Tags. We and our service providers may also use so-called "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs" or similar means (collectively, "Pixel Tags") in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to, among other things, compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1x1), that is ordinarily not visible to Site visitors and may be associated with Cookies stored on the visitors' hard drives or otherwise on their devices. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services, to serve ads, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted e-mail messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the e-mail has been opened.

      • v. Information That You Voluntarily Provide. CU also collects Non-PII when you voluntarily provide such information to us. When such information is not combined with any PII, such information is considered to be Non-PII, as it does not personally identify you or any other user.

    • b. Personally Identifiable Information. You do not have to provide PII to browse most areas of the Site. however, CU may require that Site users furnish PII in certain instances. We may collect PII from you through the Site, such as name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number or other payment account number, only when you voluntarily provide it to us or engage in transactions on our Site or offline.

  2. How Does CU Use Information Collected From Me?
    • a. Personally Identifiable Information. We may use PII you provide in the following ways:
      • i. Fulfillment of Requests. CU may use PII you provide for the purposes detailed in this policy or specified on our Site, including, for example, to send newsletters or fulfill purchases.

      • ii. Administrative Communications. From time to time we may use PII to send to important information regarding the Site, or changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information may be important to use of the Site, one may not opt-out of receiving such communications.

      • iii. Other Communications. From time to time, we may use PII to provide information about products, programs, services and promotions that we believe may be of interest. If you would prefer that we do not send such marketing messages to you, please see the "Opt-Out" section below ("CU Opt-Out").

      • iv. Purchases. If a credit card is used to make a purchase through the Site, we may collect the credit card number or other payment account number, billing address and other information related to such purchase (collectively, "Payment Information"), and may use such Payment Information in order to fulfill purchases.

      • v. Promotions. We may operate promotions ("Promotions") through the Site. We typically ask for certain PII to enter a Promotion. Rules, if any, of each Promotion should be carefully reviewed as they may contain additional important information about CU's use of PII. To the extent that the terms and conditions of such rules concerning the treatment of PII conflict with this Policy, the terms and conditions of such rules will control.

      • vi. Internal Business Purposes. We may also use PII for our internal business purposes, such as data analysis and audits. In addition, we may also use PII to enhance our information and to aid us in providing our clients with targeted promotions.

    • b. Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Because Non-PII does not personally identify a person, we may use such information for any purpose. In addition, we reserve the right to share such Non-PII with other third parties, for any purpose, including to serve interest-based advertisements.
      Site users may opt out of our use of Non-PII by following the instructions in the "Opt-Out" section below. In some instances, we may combine Non-PII with PII. If we combine any Non-PII with PII, the combined information will be treated by us as PII as long as it is so combined.

Such third parties may be provided with access to PII needed to perform their functions, but may not use such information for any other purpose.

    • b. Third Party Communications. From time to time, we may share PII with third parties to allow them to provide information regarding products, programs, services and promotions that they believe may be of interest.

You should carefully review the rules, if any, of each Promotion in which you participate through the Site, as they may contain additional important information about a sponsor's or other third parties' use of PII. To the extent that the terms and conditions of such rules concerning the treatment of PII conflict with this Policy, the terms and conditions of such rules will control.
