In order to comply with our legal obligations and security of our website, we may also use some of your personal information to detect and prevent illegal uses, abuse, spam, security incidents and other harmful activity or government or court orders.
With whom do we share your information?
The following categories of trusted business partners may come into contact with your personal data and/or information:

Our trusted business partners will be given limited access to your personal data as is reasonably necessary to deliver the services they are engaged to provide. Any trusted business partner that processes your personal data on our behalf will also commit to implement reasonable security measures.
In addition to the foregoing, please note that the third parties mentioned above will in many cases have their own statement regarding the collection and use of your personal data and information. We strongly advise you to carefully review these statements.
We may also be required to disclose your information to public authorities or other governmental agencies only to the extent this is permitted under data protection laws and is required by mandatory provisions in applicable laws.
Personal information we collect or process when you use our websites, apps or other channels may be stored or processed by IMG Enterprises group of companies or other recipients listed above in countries other than the country in which your personal information originally was collected. The laws in those countries may not provide the same level of data protection compared to the country in which you initially provided your personal information. However, please rest assured that we take legal, organizational and technical measures to protect your personal information.
How Long Do We Retain Your Information For?
The principle that we apply is that your personal information will be deleted when it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.
Your information that we need to manage you as our customer will be kept for as long as you are our customer. We may indeed have to retain some transactional information for evidentiary purposes according to applicable laws as well as the information necessary to show that we acted on your request to terminate your account.
Our websites and apps do not address anyone under the age of 13 (“Children”). We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us and we will take steps to remove that information from our servers.
Information collected through cookies and web beacons to keep track of what products you viewed and what areas or pages you viewed on our websites or apps is called “analytics data”. We use analytics data to improve the design and content of our websites and apps, to help us learn things like what pages are most attractive to all of our visitors and what promotions visitors like to see, and to gauge the success of our advertising campaigns.
Interest-based advertising has become commonplace across the Web. It is the term we use for the activity that enables us to tailor ads to your interests and activities. Either IMG Enterprises or third-party advertising companies we work with may look at your browsing activity, such as the types of content you access, ads you click on, and searches you conduct. We can then infer certain interests you have and place ads and offer you deals that meet your needs. Our goal for interest-based advertising is to show ads to people likely to be interested in the products or services we offer. We believe these interest-based ads are more useful to you than randomly-generated ads because they are tailored to your shopping and product interests as indicated by your browsing habits.
We allow certain third-party advertising companies to collect information from browsers of our websites and apps and shopping information to use to serve interest-based ads. These companies are usually third party ad servers, ad agencies, technology vendors or providers of sponsored content. Using cookies and web beacons, these companies collect data from a particular browser about web viewing behaviors over time and across unrelated websites and use such data to predict user preferences and to deliver advertisements to that browser which are calculated to target that browser’s predicted preferences. We work with selected media and technology vendors for delivery of marketing services with whom we may share your email address to help them build and deliver to you marketing communication regarding our products tailored to your interests on third-party websites. We do not sell data to these third-party advertisers.
Finally, it is important to note that in most cases opting out drops an “opt-out cookie” on your browser. As a result, if you delete, block or otherwise restrict cookies or use a different computer or Internet browser, you will need to renew your opt-out choice.
