We use "cookies" and other web technologies to collect information and support certain features of iMedia Networks Services.

These technologies also permit us to keep a record of your previous choices and preferences so that we can personalize your shopping experience and save you the inconvenience of reentering information already in our database. Generally, the information we collect using these web technologies does not identify you personally; however, it may be linked to information that does identify you personally, such as the information you provide when you make a purchase or register to use a special feature of the iMedia Networks Services. If you have opted in to receive SMS promotional alerts, you may receive text messages from us.

These partners may combine your email information with other information they have access to, including mailing addresses, so that ShopHQ may serve relevant marketing offers to you via direct mail.
Do Not Track ("DNT") is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services.
