As is true of most Websites, we automatically gather information about your computer such as your IP address, browser type, referring/exit pages, and operating system. We employ an anonymization process that truncates your IP address when third parties, namely Google, tracks data for this Website. During the course of operating this Website, ChristmasLightsCreations.com does drop cookies, small text files, onto your hard drive. This is to allow us to recognize you as a subscriber or user and allows us to compile statistical data pertaining to the site’s usage. Cookies help us provide you with a better Website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. However, blocking cookies may prevent you from taking full advantage of the Website.
Our Website pages contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used and may be used in some of our e-mails to let us know which e-mails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.
