The next time you visit HairVisionsIntl.com, the persistent Cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing registered user. In order to access or change any of your private information (for example, a credit card number) or to send a message to another user, however, you must log in securely again with your password regardless of whether your computer contains your persistent Cookie.

“Session” Cookies are used to identify a particular visit to HairVisionsIntl.com. Session Cookies expire when, or a short period of time after, you close your web browser.
“Web Beacons”, also called pixel tags, single pixel (1 X 1) or clear gifs, are electronic images which allow a website to access Cookies and help track marketing campaigns and general usage patterns of visitors to websites. Web Beacons can recognize certain types of information, such as Cookie numbers, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page where the Web Beacon is placed. We may use Web Beacons to count users and recognize users through Cookies. Access to Cookies helps us personalize your experience when you visit HairVisionsIntl.com.
We may include Web Beacons in html formatted email messages that we or our affiliates or agents send. Including Web Beacons in email messages helps us determine your interest in, and the effectiveness of, such emails.
We may use Web Beacons externally. For example, we may report aggregate information about HairVisionsIntl.com users, such as demographic and usage information, to third parties.
We may include other companies’ Web Beacons within HairVisionsIntl.com. For example, we may allow other companies, called ad networks, to serve advertisements to users of HairVisionsIntl.com. Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors, and research firms. Although we may target some ads to users that fit a certain general profile, we do not use personally identifiable information to target ads.
To deliver these ads properly, we may include a Web Beacon from these ad networks within pages served by HairVisionsIntl.com so the networks may provide anonymous, aggregated, auditing, research and reporting for advertisers as well as for the purpose of targeting ads to you while you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and Web Beacons from the ad networks’ servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own Cookies, just as if you had requested a webpage from their site.
These general targets may also be used by ad networks to display targeted ads on other websites as a substitute for random, irrelevant advertisements.
You may opt out of use of Web Beacons in the HairVisionsIntl.com pages that you view, and of placement of a Cookie by ad networks in your browser. If you opt out you may loose the potential benefit of receiving ads that are more targeted to your interests which, in turn, may limit your ability to fully realize the benefits of HairVisionsIntl.com.
