Use of Cookies

The GearNetwork website may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize GearNetwork pages, or register with GearNetwork site or services, a cookie helps GearNetwork to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same GearNetwork website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the GearNetwork features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the GearNetwork services or websites you visit.

Do Not Track Notice

Except as stated above, GearNetwork does not track users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising or for any other reason, and therefore does not respond to DO NOT TRACK signals. Third parties that have content embedded on GearNetwork web pages may set cookies on a user’s browser to provide targeted advertising and may obtain information that your web browser visited the GearNetwork site from a certain IP address. Third parties cannot collect any other personally identifiable information from GearNetworks websites unless you provide it to them directly.

Security of your Personal Information

GearNetwork takes precautions to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure, however, we cannot guarantee complete security. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
