6. Implementing Pixel Tags, Clear GIFs, Java Script, and Web Beacons
Web beacons and plug-ins are small graphic images (usually invisible to the naked eye) or code placed on a Website or in an email message for the purpose of tracking the success of email marketing campaigns and documenting the pages and advertising that users click on. To gauge the success of our website and advertising campaigns, we employ tracking tools such as cookies and web beacons.
We may also contract with outside parties to assist with data tracking, collection, and analysis. We may allow third parties with whom we have agreements to place these devices on the Website and/or in emails to collect and use information such as which pages are visited, which emails are read, and which links are clicked within emails. It’s possible that these external services will also install cookies on your machine. We may supplement the information we already have about you with aggregate demographic information and user statistics obtained from those third-party cookies. To better serve our customers, these third-party companies may also use some transaction data to provide analytics to us. Learn more about the cookies we use above.

7. Database Activity Records
To keep track of which websites were visited and which ones weren’t, “server logs” are kept on the computers that serve up the web pages.

9. Commercials from Outside Sources
We may hire an outside ad serving company to place our ads on other sites, including this one. Advertisers on our Website, other Websites, and other media may use information (excluding your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this Website and other Websites to present advertising about goods and services likely to be of interest to you. Pixel tags and similar technologies are used to capture this anonymous data, and are already commonplace on most big websites (as we’ve covered above).
The Network Advertising Initiative is a website where you may learn more about the methods and tools used in internet advertising. Network Advertising.org can tell you what options you have if you do not want these companies to utilize your information in this way.
In addition, we may occasionally hire outside parties to promote our business online and distribute our catalogs to customers we believe would be interested in our Services. The vendors will use the data they acquire about your use of our Website and Services in an aggregated, anonymous form to help improve their products and services. A cookie or pixel tag (both of which are described in greater detail above) is used to collect this anonymous information, and it is standard technology used by most large Websites. In this procedure, we will not collect any information that could be used to identify you. In order to determine if you might be interested in obtaining a catalog, they may combine the anonymous information they acquire with information obtained from other sources (such as your name and mailing address) that was not collected during your visit to our Website.
Most commercially available web browsers will allow you to disable cookie and pixel tag placement on your machine. If you no longer wish to receive our catalogs, please contact us at _________________ or send an email to [email protected] with “ANOTHER TOMORROW – OPT OUT” in the subject line.

14. Data Subjects in the EU/EEA Only: Your Rights
This Section 14 provides a summary of the rights granted to data subjects located in the EU/EEA by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Some of the rights are intricate, and we haven’t summarized every last aspect here. In order to fully understand these protections, you should familiarize yourself with the applicable laws and regulatory bodies’ instructions.
The main protections you have under data privacy law are:
the right to have mistakes corrected;
permission to delete;
the option to limit data collection;
right to contest collection;
the capacity to take one’s data with them
the ability to file a complaint with a governing body; and
the ability to revoke approval under specific conditions
In the event that we do process your personal data, you have the right to obtain confirmation of this fact as well as access to the data in question and certain supplementary information. Details on the processing’s goals, the specific types of personal data at issue, and the specific individuals who will be receiving the data are all part of that supplementary data. We shall provide you with a copy of your personal information so long as doing so does not compromise the rights and freedoms of others. The initial copy is provided at no cost, however there may be a small fee for additional copies.
You have the right to have any erroneous personal information about you corrected and to have any incomplete personal information about you updated, taking into consideration the purposes of the processing.
You have the right to have your personal information erased without excessive delay under certain conditions. You object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; the personal data have been unlawfully processed; the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing where no other legitimate basis for retention exists. Yet, there are exclusions to the right to erasure. Some exceptions to this rule may apply where it is necessary to process data in order to: exercise a constitutionally protected right (such as the right to free speech or the right to access government records); comply with a legal requirement (such as a contractual requirement); or establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.
You may have the right to limit the use of your personal information in certain situations. In the following cases, we will suspend processing while we determine whether or not your rights under the law require us to do so: you dispute the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing; you require the personal data to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims. Your personal information may still be stored if processing has been restricted in this way. Unless when we have your permission, when necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, when necessary to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or when necessary to defend the public interest, we will not otherwise handle it.
If we collect and use information about you and that use is based on our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, you have the right to object on grounds relating to your particular situation. This right to object does not apply where the processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject, such as when we are performing a public interest or governmental function. Unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, we shall cease processing the personal data upon receipt of such an objection.
You can object to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes at any time (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you raise such an objection, we shall stop using your information for that reason.
Unless the processing is necessary to carry out a job carried out for reasons of public interest, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, based on grounds relevant to your individual situation.
You have the right to file a complaint with the relevant supervisory body if you believe that our processing of your personal data violates data protection regulations. You can do this in the EU member state where you either permanently dwell, regularly work, or where the infringement was committed.
You have the right to revoke your consent at any time if it serves as the legal basis for our processing of your personal data. Legality of processing prior to withdrawal is not affected.
