Personal Information We Collect and Use at this Website
When you request information, subscribe to a mailing list or for a service or respond to an online survey, we may collect your personal information. We define “personal information” as information that is unique to you and might include your name, e-mail address(es), mailing address(es), telephone number and certain information related to the business you represent such as number of employees and industry type. If you encounter a screen or page that requests information you do not want to share with us, do not enter the information and do not proceed with that screen or page. If your personal information is required in order to allow us to respond to your inquiry, you will receive a notice advising you of this. In each such instance, you will know what personal information we collect through the website, because you actively submit it.
If you do provide us with personal information, we will only use it for the purposes described where it is collected, and we will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of ShopMilitary or its partnering entities unless (1) you expressly authorize us to do so, (2) it is necessary to allow our service providers, partnering entities or agents to provide services for us or for you, (3) in order to provide our products or services or those of our partnering entities to you, (4) it is disclosed to entities that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other entities with whom we have joint marketing agreements, (5) it is necessary in connection with a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of ShopMilitary or the merger of ShopMilitary into another entity or any consolidation, equity exchange, combination, reorganization, or like transaction in which ShopMilitary is not the survivor, or (6) otherwise as we are required or permitted by law. If you are a California resident, you may ask us to refrain from sharing your information (whether collected online or offline) with third parties for their marketing purposes. Please tell us your preference by contacting us as indicated in the “How to Contact Us” section of this Policy.

Use of “Cookies” or Other Data Collection Tools
A cookie is a piece of information which a web server may place on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are commonly used by websites to improve the user experience and have not been known to transmit computer viruses or otherwise harm your computer. Many cookies last only through a single website session, or visit. Others may have an expiration date, or may remain on your computer until you delete them.
Our cookies will track only your activity relating to your online activity on this website, and will not track your other Internet activity. Our cookies do not gather personally identifiable information.
You can decide if and how your computer will accept a cookie by configuring your preferences or options in your browser. However, if you choose to reject cookies, you may not be able to use certain of our online products and services or website features.
We may occasionally use other companies to set cookies on our website and gather cookie information for us. In some cases, we may also use another company to operate web servers for our website. We use the cookie information gathered by these companies in the same manner as stated above. In addition to the information we collect from cookies, we also obtain information which you provide to us online – for example, when you sign up for product updates or when you purchase products or otherwise communicate with us. In some cases, we retain both the cookie information and/or the information you provide to us online – for example, to complete a transaction you requested or to keep historical records of your past transactions. In other cases, we only retain the cookie and/or online information you give us if you request us to do so for your use in subsequent sessions.
Certain pages on our websites contain “web beacons” (also know as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party.
An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. When you visit our website, we may view the IP address (which may include the city, domain address and service provider) of the device you use to connect to the Internet. We use this information to determine the general physical location of the device and understand from what regions of the world our website visitors come. We also may use this information to enhance our website.
In connection with promotions or other projects, we may ask you specifically whether you have objections with respect to a certain kind of data use or sharing. If you opt-out under such circumstances, we will respect your decision. To opt out of receiving commercial communications, please contact us at info@ShopMilitary.org. Your e-mail address will be removed from our marketing list. Please allow us a reasonable period of time in order to satisfy your request, as some promotions may already be in process.
If personal information you have submitted through the website is no longer accurate, current, or complete, and you wish to update it, please send an email to info@ShopMilitary.org. Upon appropriate request we will usually be glad to update or amend your information, but we reserve the right to use information obtained previously to verify your identity or take other actions that we believe are appropriate and lawful.
