INFORMATION WE AUTOMATICALLY COLLECT
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Site. These tools collect information sent by your computer or device to our Site, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Site.
We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.
Cookies and Other Similar Technologies
The NOHM Co. may use any number of tools to collect information about you, your computer access points, and the web browser that you use to connect to our Site, including “cookie,” “web beacon,” “pixel tag” and “clear gif” technology.
This information is used for fulfilling contracts with our business partners, and to help us serve you better by improving our Site design, as well as our products, services, and promotions. We do not otherwise track any information about your use of other web sites. Information obtained through cookies and web beacons may be shared with or obtained by service providers on our behalf.
A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a web site. A “session cookie” expires immediately when you end your session (i.e., close your browser).
A “persistent cookie” stores information on the hard drive so when you end your session and return to the same web site at a later date, the cookie information is still available.
A web beacon is a small string of code that represents a clear graphic image and is used in conjunction with a cookie.
When you visit our Site, we may use both a session and a persistent cookie. This cookie may contain information (such as a unique user ID) that is used to track your usage of our Site and in some cases, your e-mail address.
Your e-mail address is only saved in this cookie if you register with us. A web beacon allows us to capture certain additional types of information about a visitor’s actions on a web site, such as a visitor’s cookie number, the time, date, duration and number of page views, a description of the page where the web beacon is placed, and details about any items that were purchased.
If you have not saved your information with or ordered from us, we may monitor and maintain information about your use of our Site in a manner that does not identify you.
You can disable cookies at any time by using your browser options; however, if you turn off cookies, we will not be able to track your order or enable you to make a purchase from our Site. In addition, we will not be able to recognize you as a registered user to allow you access to your account information.
We may use Flash Cookies (also known as Local Stored Objects) or other similar technologies. A Flash cookie is a small data file placed on a computer using Adobe Flash technology that may be built into your computer or downloaded by you to your computer.
We use these technologies to personalize and enhance your online experience, facilitate processes, personalize and store your settings. Flash cookies may help our Site visitors to, for example, set volume preferences associated with a video experience, play games and perform surveys. They help us improve our web sites by measuring which areas are of greatest interest to customers. We do not use Flash cookies for marketing or behavioral targeting purposes.
Flash cookies are different from browser cookies and the cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash cookies. If you disable Flash cookies or other similar technologies, please be aware that you may not have access to certain features and services that make your online experience more efficient and enjoyable.

When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our Site, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.”
Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by The NOHM Co.
A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third-party partner about how you browse and use the Site and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Site may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.

PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION
Your personal information including your name and address is encrypted so that it cannot be read as it is transmitted over the Internet. Regardless of these efforts, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, any information you transmit to us is sent at your own risk.
