What are Cookies?
- Cookies. The traditional cookies are small text files which are placed on your device (such as computer or smart phone) when you visit our Services. Cookies store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain from which the cookie has been placed, as well as information about the age of the cookie and a random alphanumeric identifier, the so-called cookie-ID. They help to recognize the device and make any pre-settings immediately available.
- Clear GIFs, Pixel Tags and Other Technologies. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web and app pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons or pixel tags), in connection with our Services to, among other things, track the activities of our Site and App users, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage of the Sites. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails sent to you, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
- Embedded scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with our Services, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your computer or device from our web server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the applicable Services, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
- Location-identifying technologies. GPS (global positioning systems) software, geo-filtering and other location-aware technologies locate you (sometimes precisely), or make assumptions about your location, for purposes such as verifying your location and delivering or restricting content (including ads) based on your location. If you have enabled GPS or use other location-based features on your device while using the Services, your device location may be tracked by us and third parties.
- Device recognition technologies. These technologies, which include application of statistical probability to data sets, as well as linking a common unique identifier to different device use (e.g., Facebook ID), attempt to recognize or make assumptions about users and devices (e.g., that a user of multiple devices is the same user or household).
Cookie Categories and Purposes
We categorize the Cookies we use in connection with our Services in four general categories as follows:
- Strictly Necessary Cookies let you navigate our Sites and use essential features such as access to the shopping cart and tools to pay for your purchase or enhance your security. We use Strictly Necessary Cookies to identify you as being logged in to the Sites and to authenticate you. Strictly Necessary Cookies are required to ensure that the products that you add to your shopping cart are kept there while you are shopping, and that the data that you enter during the ordering process is retained, to allow you to proceed with the payment of your order. These Cookies are persistent and allow for session to session browsing. You may not opt out of Strictly Necessary Cookies, because if you disable these Cookies we can't guarantee how the Sites or the security on the Sites will perform during your visit or subsequent visits.
- Performance Cookies may be placed on your device by us (or others) to collect analytics, statistical and other information about how you and others use our Sites (e.g. which pages you visit, when you open or read the communications we send you, which of our ads you interact with on our Sites or other websites or access points where our ads may appear, if you receive any error messages, how many users have viewed a product, etc.).
- Functionality Cookies may be placed on your device by us (or others) and are used to improve your visit to our Sites by providing you the personalized or enhanced features that you have selected or by remembering certain settings you have chosen (e.g., language preferences, the country from where you are visiting, if you have engaged with a particular component or list on the Sites so that it won’t repeat, show you when you're logged in to the Sites, etc.). If you disable these Cookies, we will not be able to retain your preferences or selected settings for your next visit.
- Targeting or Advertising Cookies are used to track your visit to our Sites or other interaction with our Services, as well as your interaction with other websites, applications or online services (including social media) and the pages you visited and links you followed. This allows us and others to display targeted ads to you, improve their delivery, measure the success of our ad campaigns and see when, whether and for how long you interact with our Services. We may also use these Cookies to limit the number of times you see the same ad.
We may use Technologies provided by various analytics providers including, but not limited to, the providers listed below.
- Google. We use Google Analytics to collect analytics information on the Bolt Collective website. You can opt-out of Google’s Processing of your information on our website by following the instructions here.
- Fullstory. We may also use Fullstory, a Third-Party analytics tool, to track page content and click/touch, movement, scroll, and keystroke activity for risk review purposes. You can optout from Fullstory’s Processing of your information on our website by following the instructions here.
You may stop or restrict the placement of Technologies on your device or remove them by adjusting your preferences as your browser or device permits.
The online advertising industry also provides websites from which you may opt-out of receiving targeted ads from data partners and other advertising partners that participate in self-regulatory programs. You can access these, and also learn more about targeted advertising and consumer choice and privacy at www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, http:/www.youronlinechoices.eu and www.aboutads.info/choices.
Please note you must separately opt-out in each browser and on each device. Remember that if you opt-out of interest-based advertising, you will still receive ads, but they will not be personalized to your interests
