We collect general statistics to track user trends on our Site. These statistics include hits to our server, the types of browsers used to access our Site, page views, and navigational patterns. This type of information helps us track “where” our users are coming from so that we can target strong demographic areas and determine the most effective ways to communicate with our users. In connection with this analysis, Boll & Branch also uses devices called “web beacons” to help us identify when emails sent to you have been received and read. We may also collect IP addresses and other information in order to prevent the introduction of viruses and hackers into the Site.
