ONLINE TRACKING AND PASSIVE COLLECTION
Our web servers collect general data (“Usage Information”) pertaining to users of this site and the mobile devices and programs from which they access this site. Usage information can include IP address, domain name, referring web page, browser type, mobile device type, device operating system, device settings, and information about the way you use your device or this site (such as the length of time spent and the pages accessed while visiting this website). The Usage Information collected does not, in and of itself, identify you personally, but we may link it to personal information. Usage Information is collected to help us manage and administer our website, to improve the content of our website, to customize and improve the website user experience, to measure the effectiveness of our advertising, and for security and fraud detection purposes. Usage Information is gathered using the following methods: (1) cookies, (2) web beacons (a.k.a. clear gifs), (3) conversion tracking, (4) web analytics, (5) third party ad serving mechanisms, and (6) general detection and use of your internet protocol (IP) address or domain name. We do not collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities across third party web sites (and thus do not monitor your browser’s Do Not Track indicator).
"Cookie" technology is used on this web site. The cookie is sent by our web site to your browser and then it may be stored on your computer or computer system. Cookies may be used to recognize you as a user and tailor our web site to your interests based on your previous online shopping preferences within the site. For example, if you visit the plumbing section of our site, the site would "remember" the visit and let you know of specials, new products, or related plumbing projects upon a future web site visit. Cookies used by this site do not contain any personally identifiable information. If for any reason you don’t want to take advantage of cookies, you may have your browser not accept them, although this may disable or render unusable some of the features of our site. You also have the ability to set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. This enables you to choose to accept or reject the cookie.
Web pages on this site or messages you receive from us may contain a small graphic image called a web beacon (sometimes called a web bug or clear gif). Web beacons are designed to allow us or a third party to collect Usage Information and monitor user activity on our site (such as when you view the web page, advertisement, or message that contains the web beacon). We may permit third parties hired by us to place web beacons on our sites or in messages sent on our behalf for purposes of collecting these same types of Usage Information for web analytics, processing, security or fraud detection purposes.
Search engines offer a feature called “conversion tracking” which is a way to track clicks to sales from either search results or ads on search engines. Using either web beacons or visible images, depending upon the search engine, the search engine notes and saves information in a cookie with non-personal information such as time of day, browser type, browser language, and IP address with each query. Information is gathered in the aggregate, without unique personal data. Conversion tracking allows the search engine company and Do it Best to track clicks to sales, including the number of clicks (“visits”) it takes before a purchase is made and permits us to measure the effectiveness of our search engine participation.]
We may use the services of a third party advertising company to serve ads on our site. Such ad serving may involve the use of web beacons or cookies to manage and target advertisements and for market research analysis.
