For each visitor browsing our website, our web server automatically recognizes and stores the visitor’s IP address (the Internet address of the visitor’s computer) to determine which areas of our site is being visited and how long each visitor spends there. This information helps us to understand visitors’ traffic patterns through our website so that we can enhance the overall usability of our website. Your computer provides this information automatically each time you log on, unless you’ve activated blocking technology available in some browsers. While we do not generally require that you provide us with individually identifiable information in order to visit and use our website, at times we (or the third party vendors with whom we contract) may ask you to provide us with personal information such as your E-mail address, name, mailing address, telephone number, credit card number, demographic information, or persistent identifier (such as user name and password) which is associated with individually identifiable information, to enable you to make a purchase, register a product, correspond with us, enter a sweepstakes, participate in an online survey, subscribe to a mailing list or newsletter, or register for special purchase discounts. You have the right not to provide any of the requested personal information, but you may not be able to participate in some activities on this website without your personal information.

Cookies:

Like many websites today, we may employ a standard technology called “cookies” to collect information about how you use our site in order to provide you with a better experience by measuring which areas of our website of greatest interest or to remember you when you return to visit us.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time.

Most browsers support cookies, but users can set their browsers to decline them and can delete them whenever they like.

Websites mainly use cookies to:

  • identify users
  • remember users’ custom preferences
  • help users complete tasks without having to re enter information when browsing from one page to another or when visiting the site later

Cookies can also be used for online target advertising and to show advertisements relevant to something the user searched for in the past.

How to control and delete cookies

If you want to restrict or block the cookies, you can do so in your browser settings. The ‘help’ function within your browser should generally tell you how.

The website www.aboutcookies.org also contains general information on cookies on a wide variety of browsers.  That website describes how to delete cookies from your computer.

Cookies in emails

In additional to the cookies we use on our websites, we use cookies and similar technologies in some emails. These email cookies help us to understand whether recipients have opened an email and how they have interacted with it. If you have enabled images, cookies may be set on your computer or device. Cookies may also be activated if you click on links within emails.

What We Do with Personal Information:

The information you provide, including information you voluntarily provide and the cookies you accept by using this website without disabling cookies in your browser, will be kept confidential and used to support your customer relationship with #LatinaGeeks. Among other things, we use this data to tailor your experience on our website. By giving us your email or other contact information, you are consenting to us sending you information about our various product upgrades, special offers, and other new products and services from #LatinaGeeks that we feel may be of interest to you. Only #LatinaGeeks or agents working on behalf of #LatinaGeeks (as described below) will have access to your information. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information by not checking applicable boxes that provide consent to use your information. At any time should you choose to, you could opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the opt-out section below. #LatinaGeeks will not share your personal information to any outside organization for its use in marketing or solicitation without your consent. Your information may be shared with agents or contractors of #LatinaGeeks for the purpose of performing services for #LatinaGeeks. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We only provide third party agents with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction.
