- Cookies and Related Technologies.
When you use the Site, we collect certain information by automated or electronic means, using technologies such as cookies, pixel tags, clear gifs (also known as web beacons and web bugs), browser analysis tools, and web server logs. A “clear gif” (also known as a “web beacons”) is a nearly invisible, pixel-size graphic image on an application, website, application or website-based document, or email. It helps us do things like view the URL of the page in which the clear gif appears, and the time our Site and the email in question is viewed. In emails, clear gifs help us confirm the receipt of and respond to emails we receive including but not limited to, those that Users forward to friends and family, as well as to help us deliver a more personalized online experience.
As you use the Site, your browser and other devices, like certain types of phones and tablets, communicate with servers operated by us, our business partners and service providers, to coordinate and record the interactivity and fill your requests for Goods and information.
The information from cookies and related technology is stored in web server logs and also in web cookies kept on the computers or other devices from which you access the Site. This information is then transmitted back to the Site by these devices. These servers are operated, and the cookies managed by us, our business partners, or our service providers.
For example, when you visit the Site, we and/or our third party service providers may place cookies on that computer or device. Cookies allow us to recognize you when they return, and to track and target your interests in order to provide a customized experience. They also help us to detect certain kinds of fraud. A “cookie” is simply a data file with a small amount of information that is stored on a device, sent by the browser one is using. It stores information about your account, your preferences, and your use of the Site. Some cookies contain serial numbers that allow us to connect your Site activity with other information we store about you or as related to your interactions with the Site.
Some cookies are temporary, whereas others may be configured to last longer. “Session” cookies are temporary cookies used for various reasons, such as to manage page views. Browsers usually erase session cookies once the browser is exited. “Persistent” cookies are more permanent cookies that are stored on the computers or other devices people use even beyond when they exit their browser. We use persistent cookies for a number of purposes. These include but aren’t limited to, retrieving certain information you have previously provided (like your password, if you asked to be remembered), and storing your preferences, such as the types of Goods in which you have told us you are interested. “Essential cookies” are cookies allow websites to perform essential functions, like remembering which products you selected for purchase and placed into your shopping cart.
“Pixel tags” are tiny graphic images placed on website pages or in emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed certain specific actions. When you access these pages or open our email messages, the pixel tags generate a notice of that action to us and/or our service providers. These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve our web pages and promotions.

Some examples of this information are your operating system type, browser type, domain and other system settings, the language your system uses and, the country and time zone of that device.

We’ll retain Your Information to provide you Goods and other goods and services.

- Security of Personal Information.
Packwoods has implemented an information security program that contains administrative, technical, and physical controls designed to reasonably safeguard Personal Information. For example, we use industry-standard encryption technology to secure Financial Account Information when it is being transmitted over the Internet. We also use industry-standard security strategies for password encryption, security certification, periodic vulnerability testing, and periodic service, database, and server security scanning and vulnerability patching. Our Site is hosted on a server that is password protected. When our employees need to access your Personal Information or Financial Information in the course of providing Goods to you, we track it internally. When our third-party providers, like our credit card processing provider, need to access your Personal Information or Financial Information in the course of providing our Goods, they can only do so with a password we’ve provided them for this purpose. However, despite our security program and procedures, you acknowledge and understand that WE CAN’T GUARANTEE that any Person will be prevented from obtaining Your Information, or any other information including but not limited to, through unauthorized means such as hacking.
In the event the breach involves your online account credentials, we will send you an email, and direct you to promptly change your password and other security information, as applicable, or to take other appropriate steps to protect the online account. You consent to our use of e-mail as a means of such notification. If you would prefer us to use another method to notify you in this situation, please e-mail us at email@example.com with the alternative and/or additional contact information you would like us to use.

This allows Instagram to assign your visit to our Site to your user account.
