We gather certain non-personal information automatically by various means, including via cookies and clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons). This information includes IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site and to gather demographic information about our customer base in the aggregate. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personal information.
We employ a software technology called clear GIFs, that help us better manage content on the Site by informing us what content is effective and to track the effectiveness of our marketing. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movement of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on webpages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
In general, we use personal information collected on the Site for the specific purpose for which it was volunteered and we take reasonable steps to assure that your personal information is reliable for its intended purpose and is accurate, complete and current.
HOW WE MAY SHARE INFORMATION

We may share your information collected on this Site with our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, and unaffiliated service providers who perform services on our behalf. These service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose personal information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. For example, we may also disclose certain financial and other information you provide to us to third parties that provide credit reporting, payment or order fulfillment services in order to verify your information, authenticate payments and process orders.
You have the right to limit how we share your personal information for marketing purposes among our subsidiaries, affiliated companies and unaffiliated service providers.
We also must always reserve the right to disclose information about you as required by law, in response to legal process including law enforcement requests, and where needed to protect the safety, property, or legal rights of users of the Site, or Olga Banartsev or its affiliates or third parties.
We are not responsible or liable for any content presented by or contained on any independent website, including, but not limited to, any advertising claims or marketing practices. We also are not responsible or liable for any privacy or security policies of any third party sites to which we may provide links on the Site.

We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect the personal information you provide on this Site against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use and other unlawful forms of processing. [We use Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) technology to protect the transmission over the Internet of your payment card data. You can check the security of your connection by looking at the URL line of your browser.
