Information Observed or Collected Through Technology
A. Navigational Information. Navigational information, such as the following, is collected by us and our third party service providers when you use our Sites:

- web pages requested and viewed
- time spent on our Sites
- for our mobile websites and apps, technical information about the device used, such as screen size, cookie support by the device and how images may appear
B. Location Information. Our Sites and emails include features that may require collecting different types of location information that we then use for the specific feature you have selected, such as:
- Find a store feature. Our Sites may allow you to search for retail locations carrying Nature’s One products near you. If you access one of our Sites through a mobile device and you have enabled location-based services, specific location information may be collected for these features. If you access these features through a desktop device, you may be able to choose to have your browser provide us your location information to respond to your request. The specificity of the desktop device location information can vary depending on the browser you are using and how you are connected to the internet.
- Email. Our emails may use your IP Address to determine the postal code where you are located when you open the email. This allows us to tailor content to you, such as a map of nearby retail locations carrying Nature’s One products. The specificity of the location can vary depending on the device used to open our emails.
C. Cookies and Other Similar Technology. We and our third party service providers use “cookies.” Cookies assign a unique identification to your device and are typically stored on your device by your web browser. We may also use pixel tags (also known as web beacons, web bugs, and clear GIFs) on the Sites and in emails. A pixel tag is a nearly invisible pixel-sized graphic image on a webpage or in an email message.
The information we and our third party service providers collect through cookies, pixel tags and similar technology includes the following:
- your interactions with our Sites and with our advertisements
- the time of your visit to our Sites
- confirmation when you open email from us, including the time you open the email and whether you click on any links in the email
- sites you visit after visiting one of our Sites
You can control and delete certain cookies through your web browser settings. However, if you choose to do so, then you will not be able to use the full functionality of the Sites. Certain cookies expire and are automatically erased whenever you close your browser window. We do not control the use of third-party cookies or the resulting information, and we are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties. If you do not wish for Nature’s One to use analytics cookies, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information Obtained from Third parties
We may collect aggregate data from third parties that do not reasonably identify, relate to, describe, associate with, or link, directly or indirectly, to you. Such de-identified data ordinarily includes aggregate, summary, or other usage data, and may include, by way of example, statistics regarding total users of our Sites, information regarding types of Internet browsers used by users, click stream information, and widget usage patterns (collectively, the “Aggregate Information”). Nature’s One does not collect from these third parties information that would enable it to re-identify this information with a particular consumer and Nature’s One has policies and procedures in place to, among other things, safeguard against such a practice if it were possible.

This allows us to better understand and analyze our user growth, general demographic information about the users of, and interaction with content on, our Social Media Pages.
3. How is technology used to serve our advertisements on other sites that you visit and what choices do you have?
We may contract with third party advertising companies to tailor online advertising to be directed to you on other websites. These third party advertising companies place, use, or rely on technology, such as cookies and pixel tags, to obtain information about your interactions with our Sites as well as with other websites.

You can also click the preference icon that may appear on some of our advertising served through these technologies.
Nature’s One does not use technology that recognizes a “do-not-track” (DNT) signal from your web browser, because we do not track users other than for aggregate analytics purposes. DNT is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable DNT by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of your web browser.
We may track your online activities over time and across third-party website or online services using exclusively aggregate information.
