Personal information may be shared with select business partners with whom we have a legal agreement with, in order to complete certain actions. This includes sharing e-mail information with our e-mail service provider and web browsing data with our eCommerce platform. We may also employ third-party vendors to provide services for us (such as data analysis or marketing strategy) which require them to view your personal information such as order history, name and address, browsing activity and e-mail address.
We utilize online advertising through the Google AdWords network which collects personal information such as IP address and browser activity when you visit our websites in order to provide advertisements that are tailored to the interests of the consumer.
