We also collect information from you when you give us permission to access it. For example:
We may collect certain technical information about your visits to our online environments without you actively submitting such information. This information can make your use of our online environments easier and more meaningful by allowing us to provide better service, customize our online environments based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, provide you with more relevant advertisements, analyze trends and otherwise administer and improve our online environments. Some of the types of technical information collected automatically when visiting our online environments include:
Our advertising vendors and other partners may share with us the information they collect. For example:
We may combine the information we collect through one or more of our online environments with information we collect through other online environments. We may also combine information collected through our online environments with information collected through our offline environments, as well as with information provided by our partners. We use this consolidated information to help us improve our online environments, products and services, communicate information to you, enhance our marketing and research activities and engage in any other uses described in the “How We Use Information We Collect” section below.
MKConnections uses the information we collect to provide our products and services to you, improve our products and services, develop new products and services and protect ourselves and our consumers. We may also use your information to provide you order confirmation and shipment notification. Unless you ask us not to, we may also use your information to communicate with you about products, services, and promotions in the future.
MKConnections may provide your information to third party service providers who assist us in fulfilling your order, as well as to your financial institution for customer verification and fraud prevention purposes. All of our third party service providers are required by contract not to otherwise disclose your personal information, or use it for any purpose other than in strict accordance with our guidance and instructions. More information about the sharing of your information with third parties is found below in the When and Why MKConnections Discloses Your Information section.
If you place an order with us, the information we collect may be used to maintain your order history, provide you with access to some features of our online environments or offer you the benefits and privileges that are provided to past customers. This may include purchasing products or services, use of exclusive or personalized content or activities.

We use common tools, such as cookies and similar technologies (discussed in the “Technical Information Collected Automatically” section above), to collect information about consumers’ use of our online environments for purposes of enhancing their online experience and delivering more meaningful advertisements. Like many companies, we may also utilize third party advertising vendors and other partners to collect this information.
One way in which we deliver more meaningful advertisements is through a common form of online advertising known as “retargeting” or “remarketing.” Retargeting works by serving ads on one site based on consumers’ online activities on a different site. To do this, MKConnections or our advertising vendors may use a device ID, cookie or similar technology placed by us or the advertising vendor when you visit our online environments or third party websites or apps. The placing of these cookies or other technologies on your device may enable you to be identified across multiple websites and you should consult the privacy policies of our advertising vendors to understand how they collect and use your data.
MKConnections facilitates the collection and use of data by our clients in connection with interest-based advertising. MKConnections adheres to the DAA principles governing online marketing and data sharing.
