A “cookie” is a small data file that is sent to your web browser and placed on your computer or device when you access a website. The cookies are then able to track your activities on the Sites and across websites. Cookies also allow us (and our service providers) to: track your activities on the Sites; track clicks, purchases and conversion; recognize your computer or device so that you are able to save your preferences and stay logged in to the Site without having to re-enter your Account credentials; deliver customized content, messages and advertising to you; preserve the contents of your shopping cart; optimize and measure the effectiveness of our advertising and emails; provide and enhance Site security and fraud detection; otherwise enhance, monitor and analyze Site usage; conduct research to improve our content, merchandise and services; and personalize your experience on the Site.
Most web browsers enable you to decline or block cookies (check the “Help” or “Settings” menus of your browser to learn more). While you are free to decline cookies, doing so may prevent you from taking full advantage of all features of our Site(s). Refusing cookies may also negatively impact the display or functionality of certain areas of a Site.
Web Beacons and Tags. We also use web beacons (also known as “clear GIFs” or “pixel tags”), which are typically one-pixel images that are embedded on a page of a Site or in our communications, such as an email message. These technologies help us to verify when a certain page of a Site is viewed, when a message is opened and when links or other content in a message are clicked or viewed. We use the information collected through web beacons, tags and other similar technologies for similar purposes as the information collected through cookies, as described above.
Flash Cookies/Local Shared Objects. We may use Flash cookies and other similar technologies (referred to herein as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”), which allow a website to store certain information locally on an individual’s computer or device and then access and use that information to enhance and facilitate certain Site experiences, processes and functionality. Flash cookies and other LSOs are different from typical browser cookies (as described above), and therefore the cookie management tools provided by your web browser may not enable you to remove Flash cookies or other LSOs. To learn more about managing these technologies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.
Web Analytics. We use third party web analytics services, such as Google Analytics and Adobe services, to help us track and analyse the use of our Site and to measure the effectiveness of our advertising, Site content and communications. These service providers’ tools, including, for example, cookies, tags and web beacons, help us to gain this understanding.

Additionally, AUDREY ALEXANDRE participates in the Adobe Marketing Cloud Device Co-op to better understand how you use our Sites and apps across the various devices you use, and to deliver tailored promotions.
