3. What Information Is Collected Automatically Upon Visit to EquestrianCollections.com and How Is It Used?

When visiting our site, we collect information about your device to ensure we can continue to drive innovation and improve usability to benefit your online shopping experience. Information can be collected through your IP address (enables us to identify your computer or device, but does not tell us who you are), clickstream data (server address, domain name), Universal Event Tracking (UET, provides online ads and remarketing campaigns), and through cookies (small text files that are stored within your internet browser by the websites that you visit).

These pieces of information may be combined with other information you provide to us (such as by creating an account on our website). This will allow us to learn about the interests of our visitors in aggregate and also on a personal level, to better understand our users’ interests and needs, so we can improve our products and services, and deliver the type of content, features, and promotions that will be of greatest interest to you.

3.1. Universal Event Tracking (UET) and Personalized, or Interest Based Advertising

CBG participates in online ad and remarketing campaigns through the Bing Ads network, which is a Microsoft Company. As a company that advertises through Bing Ads, a small snippet of computer code is added to each webpage called a, “universal event tracking tag” (“UET”). This UET enables Microsoft to identify user visits to the CBG website, then allows CBG to segment users to optimize marketing campaigns by creating remarketing lists based on user activity on the website. This type of advertising is commonly known as “interest based advertising”. Interest based advertising allows CBG to offer products and services we feel would be of greatest interest to you.

Bing requires you to be notified that individual end user tracking and data sharing with third parties for the purpose of advertising and marketing is taking place on the CBG website. These remarketing lists will only be used by CBG and will not be shared with any third parties or any other advertisers or partners, and not otherwise used by Microsoft for any purpose not described in this policy or the Microsoft, Bing Ads policies.

We respect the sensitivity of certain types of data of our users and do not create marketing lists based on data considered sensitive such as but not limited to, health information, personal identification numbers or sexual orientation. In addition, we do not create marketing lists or otherwise profile any individuals under the age of 13, or other age restrictions as required by law.

If you want to “opt out” of interest based advertising, the next section called “Opting out of interest based advertising” provides further direction.

3.2. Opting Out Of Interest Based Advertising

You may “opt out” of interest based advertising by going to each of these websites and following the directions to opt out: NAI consumer opt-out page and the DAA opt-out page. Opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the NAI member company or companies from which you opted out will no longer customize ads based on your interests and web usage patterns using cookie-based technology.

3.3. How We Respond To "Do Not Track" Disclosures

We are strongly committed to not sharing non-public information with third parties. Under this Privacy Policy, we may share your information only under particular situations, as described in this Policy. Because we protect all users in this manner, we do not change our behavior in response to a web browser's “do not track” signal.

13. How We May Use Your Information

We will use the personal information you provide CBG in combination with, general information, click stream data, cookies, UET tags, and additional sources of information, to, analyze visits to the website and learn about the interests of our visitors in aggregate and also on a personal level to better understand the users interests and needs, so we can improve our products and services and deliver the type of content, features and promotions that will be of greatest interest to you which include but are not limited to; information or materials via e-mail about products, offers, and news we think might interest you; efforts to administer a promotion, survey or other offering to provide you with relevant products or services (for example, to deliver a prize you may have won in a contest) we believe would be of interest to you; and from time to time we may share your information with select partners, subsidiaries or others we feel would enhance your experience on the CBG website or offer you products and services that would be of interest to you.

14. Information Sharing

Information sharing can provide a valuable type of consumer networking. By helping to make new connections and introduce new resources to our customers, you may discover new opportunities and products compatible with your interests and needs. With that end in mind, information may be shared with other select companies whose products and services you may find useful. Information sharing also helps us to guard against potential fraud and other wrongdoing. We review transactions internally on a regular basis to identify potential concerns, and we partner with select outside companies to further enhance our ability to ensure that fraudulent orders and/or potentially damaging worms, viruses and other types of malware do not interfere with our ability to provide the best possible products, value and services to you and to our other valued customers.

15. Information Sharing Choices

We appreciate and respect that not all customers may wish to benefit from the opportunity to share information with other select companies. If you do not want CBG to share your personal information for marketing purposes, please immediately contact us and we will remove your name from lists we share with other companies. When contacting us, please clearly state your request, including your name, mailing address, email address and phone number so we can verify that it is you who is contacting us.

After we process your request, your personal information will no longer be shared for marketing purposes. It is important to understand that with some companies or online partners, your information must be shared in order to receive their services. Opting out of sharing your information for marketing purposes will not prevent your relevant information from being provided to shippers when you order products for delivery or from other sharing for non-marketing purposes. Similarly, this will not prevent us from sharing information as and to the extent it is combined or aggregated (in a non-personally identified manner) or otherwise analyzed by us, or our Service Providers.

We will encourage our service partners to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your personal information by our service partners is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners and is not subject to our control. As such, you expressly agree to hold CBG harmless for any damages you sustain as a result of information shared with third parties under this agreement.
