Collection and use of Personal Information sent by your web browser  

Contex collects information that is sent to Contex automatically by your web browser. This information typically includes the IP address of your internet service provider, the name of your operating system and the name and version of your browser. The information Contex receives depends on the settings on your web browser. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings. The information provided by your browser does not identify you personally. Contex uses this information to create statistics that help Contex improve the Site and make it more compatible with the technology used by our Site visitors.

Collection and use of Personal Information collected by placing a cookie

Contex may obtain information about you by installing a “tag” on your computer’s hard drive. This tag is known as a “cookie.” The Site uses “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”.

A session cookie is used to tag your computer with a computer-generated, unique identifier when you access the Site. A session cookie does not identify you personally and expires after you close your browser. Contex uses session cookies to collect statistical information about the ways visitors use the Site – which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page. Contex analyzes this information in statistical form to better understand our visitors’ interests and needs to improve the content and functionality of the Site.

“Persistent cookies” do not expire when you close your browser; they stay on your computer until you delete them. By assigning your computer a unique identifier, Contex is able to create a database of your previous choices and preferences and in situations where these choices or preferences need to be collected again, they can be provided by Contex automatically, saving you time and effort. For example, after you make a purchase, if you decide to make another purchase, your shipping address will have been retained and will only need to be confirmed.

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. Although you are not required to accept cookies when you visit the Site, you may be unable to use all of the functionality of the Site if your browser rejects our cookies.
