1. What Information Does ALP Collect When You Visit Our Site/Place an Order?
The term “Automatic Information” is information automatically collected by our web server (which may be hosted by a third-party) that your web browser makes available whenever you visit our Site, such as your computer’s IP address, browser type, operating system version, and information about the website that you visited before visiting the Site). The term “Automatic Information” includes "cookies" and “tags,” each of which the Site uses (as hereafter described). A cookie is a small text file that a website’s server places on a computer’s web browser. The cookie stores information which may be read by the website’s server about the browsing activities of the computer user on the Site. This includes information such as pages and content viewed, the time and duration of visits, search queries entered into search engines, and whether a computer user clicked on an advertisement. Cookies also can be used to maintain data related to a particular individual, including passwords or items in an online shopping cart. In some contexts, such as where a number of separate websites participate in a network, cookies can be used to track a computer user across different sites. Cookies do not alter your hard drive in any way and cannot be used to access any personal information from your computer. Cookies are used as a standard practice by many sites. As important as cookies are to our Site, ALP understands that this might make you uncomfortable. If you would prefer not to accept cookies from our Site or any other site, you can modify the setting on the web browser installed on your computer. Please refer to your browser's online help feature or the user's manual for instructions on how to do this. However, if you refuse to accept cookies from the Site, it is possible that all or some portions of the Site may not function as intended.
ALP may use internet tags (also known as action tags, single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs and 1-by-1 GIFs) and cookies at this Site and may deploy these tags/cookies through a third-party advertising partner or a web analytical service partner which may be located and store the respective information (including your IP-address) in a foreign country. These tags/cookies are placed on both online advertisements that bring users to this site and on different pages of this site. ALP uses this technology to measure the visitors' responses to our sites and the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns (including how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted) as well as to evaluate your use of this Site. The third-party partner or the web analytical service partner may: be able to collect data about visitors to our and other sites because of these internet tags/cookies, be able to compose reports regarding the Site’s activity for us, and be able to provide further services which are related to the use of the Site and the internet. They may provide such information to other parties if there is a legal requirement that they do so or if they hire the other parties to process information on their behalf. Additionally, automatic Information may be tied to your Personal Data after Personal Data has been submitted and, therefore, will be treated as Personal Data to the extent it may be tied to Personal Data.
The term “Information” as used herein means, collectively, Personal Data and Automatic Information.
