Cookies, Web Beacons, Pixel Tags, GIF’s

We design the layout ad the features of our website, so that new visitors can easily get information about our products and services without revealing their identity. For new visitors, we use cookies or web beacons to collect limited data such as the date, time and areas of the clicks to our website, and the website from which the new visitor navigated to our site. When choosing one of our products or services, we might try to track your browser and combine information from cookies, web beacons, and other information collected online with other data we hold about you, in an effort to improve the features, marketing and content of our website and make your online experience easier and more effective, thus enabling us to better serve the needs of our customers.

A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer’s hard drive that often contains an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, the site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a text part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser settings allow it. Your browser only permits a website to access the cookies, which you have previously sent, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.

Some of our partners, such as third party advertisers, use cookies from their websites. We have no access or control over these cookies. We use cookies to store login information or other information on your computer, which serve to improve the functionality of our website and to adapt our services to your tastes and interests. For certain services, we offer users the ability to store a user ID or password in a cookie, so you do not need to import them again when returning to our website. Cookies, in conjunction with our server logs allow us to count the total number of people who visit our website and appreciate what parts of the site are most popular. This information helps us to continually improve our website and better serve our customers. We do not store credit / debit card numbers in cookies. Most browsers allow users to decide whether to accept cookies, and how long to keep them on their hard disk. You can set your browser to refuse cookies and still use our website, although access to the website and its functionality may be slower and less convenient.

Web beacon is a graphic image as a pixel tag or a clear GIF, placed on a website or in an e-mail message to monitor user activity, such as whether the site is accessible or if the e-mail gets clicked. Often invisible, because they are very small in size. They are also used on many websites, for alignment purposes. We sometimes use web beacons to provide an independent estimate of how many people visit our website or to gather statistics about using a certain browser on our website. Some of our websites and html-formatted e-mail newsletters use web beacons in conjunction with cookies. It is difficult for you to limit the use of web beacons because there is no easy way to distinguish their use by aligning and other purposes. The web beacons may also be loaded from a different server than the rest of the site.

We use third party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. When providing ads, our third-party advertisers and partners may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. These companies may use information about your visits to Petits Grecs and other websites in order to provide advertisements on this site and other sites about goods and services that may interest you. These third party partners monitor how visitors use our website and determine which of our characteristics they prefer.
