Security of Personal Information
Gelpacks.com safeguards the security of the personal information and other data provided to us with appropriate physical, administrative, and technical procedures. Inside Gelpacks.com, personal information is stored in secure and controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where Gelpacks.com, Inc., its subsidiaries, or its service providers are located. When you use our Websites, you are transferring information to the United States and other locations where Gelpacks.com or its service providers operate. While we strive to protect personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of the personal information provided to us, as no transmission of information through the Internet can ever be completely secure. We urge individuals to protect their personal information when using the Internet by, for example, changing passwords often and using a combination of letters and numbers, and making sure to use a secure browser.
If we learn of a security system breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on our Websites or by sending you an email. You may have a legal right to receive this notice in writing or in any other form required by applicable law.
A cookie is an alphanumeric set of characters that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer so that our Websites can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
Similar technologies are tools that can be used instead of or in conjunction with cookies, such as web beacons, which are small, non-recognizable pictures downloaded to your computer when a specific site is loaded.
- To help us recognize you as a unique visitor (just a number) when you return to our Website.
- To allow us to tailor content or advertisements to match your preferred interests.
- To avoid showing you the same advertisements repeatedly.
- To develop leads for our sales organization and our business partners and provide direct marketing communications to you if you have consented to receive such communications.
- To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users interact with our site.
- To help us improve the structure of our Websites.
- To protect the security of our Website.
- Our Website uses the following categories of cookies:
Performance Cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use our Website, such as which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. The cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated, and therefore, anonymous. For example, we use Adobe Analytics to understand how visitors engage with our Website. This means that when you visit our Website, your browser automatically sends certain information to Adobe. This includes, for example, the web address of the page you’re visiting and your IP address. You will find the details of how the Adobe technology collects and processes data at https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/reference/c_Privacy_Overview.html.
Functionality Cookies: These cookies allow a Website to remember choices you make (such as your language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts, and other parts of web pages you can customize. The information these cookies collect may be anonymized, and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Targeting and Advertising Cookies: These cookies are used to deliver advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement, as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with our permission. They remember that you have visited a website, and this information is shared with other organizations, such as advertisers.
Two types of cookies may be used on our Websites: session cookies (which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site), and persistent cookies (which remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer, though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).
Disabling and Enabling Cookies
If you don’t want Adobe Analytics to be used in your browser, you can block the cookies in your cookie setting by enabling the Adobe Analytics Opt-Out Feature.
If you are in the European Union (EU) and would like to opt out of third-party cookies relating to behavioural advertising, see www.youronlinechoices.eu. Opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the company or companies from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your web preferences and usage patterns.
Do Not Track
There are different ways to prevent tracking of online activities. Some web browsers may allow you to enable a do-not-track feature that alerts the websites you visit that you do not want your online activities to be tracked. Our Websites may not recognize or react in response to do-not-track signals. At present, no universally accepted standards exist on how companies should respond to do-not-track signals. In the event a final universally accepted standard is established, we will assess and provide an appropriate response to these signals.
