Information collected through our cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies. We, or service providers on our behalf, may use technologies such as “cookies,” “web beacons,” “tags,” “scripts,” and other tracking technologies to automatically collect personal data from you when you use the products and services. Cookies are small amounts of data that are stored within your Internet browser, which save and recognize your browsing habits. Annette’s Couture Millinery uses both session cookies (which track a user’s progression during one site visit) and persistent cookies (which track a user over time). Web beacons (also called pixel tags or clear GIFs) are web page elements that can help deliver cookies, count visits, track browser type, identify your internet protocol (“IP”) address, understand usage and marketing campaign effectiveness, recognize certain types of information on your computer, in your email or on your mobile device, such as the time and date you viewed a page, which emails are opened, which links are clicked and similar information.

We use cookies to help us provide you with a more personalized experience and to improve our products and services. Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. If you reject cookies, you may still use our products and services, but your ability to use some features of our products and services may be limited.

We may rely on third parties to manage our advertising on other websites. They may use technologies such as cookies and web beacons to gather information about your browsing on our website and on other sites to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. They may also collect your email addresses to combine your information with other information they have access to such as mailing addresses so that we may serve relevant marketing offers to you via email and direct mail. If you do not want this information collected, please contact us by phone, email or mail. You can contact us at [email protected].

We may use personal data collected from or about you to verify users, respond to your requests or to tailor content, to provide products and services to you, to provide informational services, prevent improper or illegal activity, or for any other legal, business or marketing purposes that are not inconsistent with the terms of this Policy and applicable laws and regulations

Your Internet browser and mobile device may allow you to adjust your browser settings so that “do not track” (“DNT”) requests are sent to the websites you visit. We do not process DNT signals. Our third-party service providers may also not respond to DNT signals.
