Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
Session Analytics Information. We may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information about your hardware devices (i.e., your computer or mobile device) when you access BKB Services. For example, when you visit https://brooklynboulders.com (the “Site”), we may collect your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, which is the number automatically assigned to your computer or mobile device whenever you access the Internet, as well as information about the type of Web browser software you use and the referring Web site. This number does not identify your name, email address, or other personal information. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our service and to administer the Site. We may also collect information about your activity on our Site, such as the time and duration of your visit, the sections of the Site or application that you visit, the search terms you use, and the products you add to your shopping cart.
A “cookie” is a small file stored by your web browser on your computer. Cookies allow us to recognize who you are, when you arrive at our site, by associating an anonymous identification number in the cookie. At no time is your personally identifiable information stored within one of our cookies. We may also contract with a third-party advertising partner to serve ads on our behalf across the internet and sometimes on this site. They will collect and use anonymous information about your visits to and interactions with our website through the use of technologies such as cookies to personalize advertisements for goods and services. To learn more, or to opt-out of receiving advertisements tailored to your interests by any third party partner, visit the Network Advertising Initiative at www.networkadvertising.org/choices.

Accepting cookies through your web browser is your personal choice. You can set your browser to disable cookies. However, if you choose not to accept cookies, we may not be able to provide you with as good of an experience as one that is specifically tailored to your needs by utilizing the cookie.
These technologies make it easier for you to use the BKB Services. We use them in order to retain the contents in your shopping cart while you are checking out other areas of the BKB Services. When you are done, the products in your cart are still there for you to buy. We also use them to gather certain aggregate usage information about the numbers and frequency of visitors to the BKB Services and how they interact with the BKB Services. This data helps us improve the appearance and usability of the BKB Services.
Cookies do not collect personally identifiable information. Cookies may remain on your hard drive or device after you cease using the BKB Services. You may decline to accept cookies by modifying your Web browser settings. If you choose to decline cookies, however, you may not be able to sign up for or use certain features of the BKB Services that depend on your Web browser accepting cookies.
