The information we collect from you may also include information you give us about other people, such as the name and address of a gift recipient.
Like many other websites, we also collect information through automated means. Although our site servers collect information about a user’s internet protocol address, our server is not able to automatically associate that information with a particular user. For example, we may collect non-identifying information associated with that address, such as the time and date of a visit, the originating domain name, the browser type, and the particular pages or products viewed on the site.
Image tags work in conjunction with cookies. An image tag, also referred to as a clear GIF or web beacon, is a small image file that may be located on select pages on our websites.
The third-party advertising companies may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of ads. Any such information is anonymous. They may use this anonymous information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. No personal information about you is collected during this process. The information is anonymous and does not link online actions to an identifiable person. If you would like more information and want to explore the option of not having this information collected by third-party advertisers click here.
At this time, HandmadeVeganShoes.com has contracted with Google, Clicky, Omniture and XiTi to collect information about how website users navigate our websites.

We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the information we collect online. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We do not provide an absolute guarantee of the security of our information databases, nor do we guarantee that the information you may choose to supply will not be intercepted while you transmit it from your computer, over the internet, or along other third party networks, and to our systems. However, with respect to security: when we request the transfer of certain types of sensitive information, we redirect visitors to a secure server using, for example, Secure Sockets Layer security.
