Information Concerning Cookies
Your privacy is important to Monkey Business.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a web site, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. There are two types of cookies that we may use: session and persistent. Session cookies exist only during an Internet user’s online session. They disappear from the user’s computer when he or she closes the browser software. Persistent cookies remain on the user’s computer after the browser has been closed.
What information might we gather with cookies and why?
- Recognizing your user profile when you visit.
- Identifying when you visit our site.
- Identifying the pages that you view.
- Keeping track of items that you’ve placed in your shopping cart.
The cookie merely recognizes your browser, unless you choose to identify yourself voluntarily. You may choose to identify yourself, for example, by entering your username and password. If you do identify yourself, cookies can link to information regarding your account with us, including pages you have viewed. Cookies are also used to identify you when you return.
Who gathers this information and how is my privacy protected?
How can I block or remove cookies?
You can control your preferences for cookies through your browser’s settings. For example, you can change the settings for cookies on Internet Explorer and Chrome as follows:
Internet Explorer: By selecting “Tools,” then “Internet Options,” then “Privacy,” and then either “Advanced” for general settings or “Sites” for site-by-site restrictions or exceptions.
Chrome: By selecting “Settings,” then “Under the Hood” then “Content Settings.”
At these locations, you can choose to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, have your browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or disable cookies altogether. You can also specify particular URL addresses (sites) for which you choose to make an exception (either to receive or not to receive cookies). Opting out only applies to the specific web browser on the specific computer that you make the change. If you use multiple computers or multiple web browsers, you must opt out using each one.
Please be aware that if you choose not to receive cookies from our site, some aspects of the site will not function properly.
These cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.
