Cookies and Pixel Tags

Cookies:

A cookie is a small data file that is stored by your Web browser on your computer. Cookies enable you to place an order on our Web site. They also allow us to enhance and personalize your online shopping experience, so that the information you receive is more relevant to you. We do not tie personally identifiable information to our cookies.

For example, we use cookies to:

  • Remember what items are in your shopping cart
  • Recognize you when you return to our web site
  • Enable you to use express checkout, if you have created an account at aztexhats.com
  • Study how our customers navigate through our web site and which products they request in search engine inquiries

We use session ID cookies and persistent cookies.

Session Cookies:

  • We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site
  • A session cookie helps keep track of items that you put into your shopping cart
  • A session ID cookie expires when you close you browse

Persistent Cookies:

  • A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time
  • You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s "help” file.
  • We set a persistent cookie to store your passwords, so you don’t have to enter it more than once.
  • Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

Some of our business partners (e.g. advertisers) use cookies on our site. We have no access to or control over these cookies.

This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by www.AzTexHats.com only and does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties.

If you set your browser to refuse cookies, please call us at 800-972-2116 to place your order.

Pixel Tags:

Pixel tags help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Pixel tags are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixel are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.

Log Files:

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information, in such that we record your IP address. IP addresses would be used to assist us in investigating a case of fraud (IE: someone attempting to use stolen credit cards).

We use a third-party tracking service that uses cookies, pixel tags, and log files, called HitsLink by Net Applications, to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our site in the aggregate who uses these other online tools to measure the performance of a marketing effort on our behalf. We prohibit these companies from using this information for their own marketing purposes or from sharing this information with anyone other than www.AzTexHats.com .

How We Use Email
When you provide us your email address, we may send you emails necessary to confirm and process your order, respond to a request, or to provide customer service. For example, after you place an order at www.aztexhats.com, you will receive an email confirmation. Recipients of our Email Gift Certificates will receive an email notifying them of the gift and instructing them how to redeem it . This is a one-time email to the gift recipient and their email will not be used again unless they place an order on our website.

Links to Other Sites
