There are a few ways in which we use the information you provide us:
Put simply, a cookie is a small piece of information that web sites use to remember information about users. We use two types of cookies to recognize our members and remember shopping list items. We use transient cookies to provide continuity from page to page. Within a single visit, these cookies store information such as your shopping list to simplify checkout. They do not contain any personally identifying information.
We use persistent cookies to identify members after their first visit. These cookies remain on the hard drive of a PC and allow a user to enter our site without having to log in on every visit. To access any secure areas such as your account information, you must still enter your password.
We measure and track the traffic throughout our site. This anonymous information is used to compile overall statistics and is not recorded at an individual level. The statistics help us decide which products and services best serve our members and guests.
We use aggregate information from demographic surveys and traffic patterns to customize our site. State-of-the-art comparison technology allows us to use this information to make recommendations to members based on previous traffic patterns and purchases. We only use information on an aggregate level and do not track information about individuals. Aggregate information may be shared with our partners to plan advertising or promotions. We do not share any individual information and this data is all anonymous.
Once in a while, we may offer you the opportunity to participate in customer satisfaction, site improvement, and other business-related surveys. You may be asked to provide certain information to participate. Sometimes we partner with other companies to deliver these surveys. All surveys are optional.
