Cookies

Thank you for using Shopavize!

  • Our privacy policy describes how we collect and use information, and what choices you have. One way we collect information is through the use of a technology called “cookies", and similar technologies, such as pixels, local storage and software development kits (SDKs). We use cookies for all kinds of things on Shopavize.

What’s a cookie

  • In technology when you go online, you use a program called a “browser” (like Apple’s Safari or Google’s Chrome). Most websites store a small amount of text in the browser—and that text is called a “cookie.” Other technologies function similarly to collect data about your browsing activity. This policy refers to these technologies collectively as “cookies.”

  • We use session cookies (that last until you close your browser) or persistent cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them). For example, we use persistent cookies to store your language preferences or other settings so you don‘t have to set them up every time you visit Shopavize.

  • Some of the cookies we use are associated with your Shopavize account (including information about you, such as the email address you gave us) and other cookies are not.

How we use cookies

  • We have three categories of cookies: 
  • Essential cookies are required so Shopavize works in the way you expect. Examples of these types of cookies are login cookies which keep you logged in as you scroll through Shopavize.
  • Analytics cookies which are used for internal analytics and include cookies from providers like Google Analytics.
  • Personalization cookies for customizing content, including sponsored content, presented to you on Shopavize. 
  • Marketing cookies which are used for advertising Shopavize to you off of Shopavize. 

What we do with the cookies in each category

Essential cookies

  • We use essential cookies to remember your settings and preferences, like the language you prefer and your privacy settings.
  • Essential cookies let you log in and out of Shopavize.
  • Essential cookies are just one way we protect you from security risks. For example, we use them to detect when someone might be trying to hack your Shopavize account or spam the Shopavize community.

Analytics cookies

  • We use analytics cookies to make Shopavize better. For example, these cookies tell us how many people use a certain feature and how popular it is, or whether people open an email we send.
  • We also use cookies to help our Brand Partners understand who sees and interacts with them, and who visits their Studio or purchases their products.
  • Sometimes we hire security vendors or use third-party analytics providers to help us understand how people are using Shopavize. Just like we do, these providers may use cookies.

Personalization cookies

  • We use cookies to help us remember which posts, MODEs, moods, collections, or style guides, people or brands you’ve interacted with so we can show you related content you might like.
  • We also use cookies to help Brands show you more content you may like.  If you’d like to opt-out of these services you can do so in your settings.

Marketing cookies

  • Sometimes we hire advertising vendors so that we can market Shopavize products on other websites and apps.  These providers may use cookies to provide this service to us. If you’d like to opt-out of these services you can do so in your settings.

Where we use cookies

  • We use cookies on Shopavize.com, in our mobile applications, and in our products and services (like ads, emails and applications). We also use them on the websites of partners who use Shopavize’s platform and tools.

Your options

  • There are a few ways you can choose how cookies are used on Shopavize:

  • You can choose to go directly to your privacy settings to personalize Shopavize for you. Learn more about your options in the Help Center.

  • There are also online tools such as Digital Advertising Alliance's Browser Check and European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance's Your Online Choices site which allow you to choose how cookies are used throughout the web based on the device and browser you are using.

  • Your browser probably gives you cookie choices. For example, most browsers let you block “third-party cookies,” which are cookies from sites other than the one you’re visiting. Those options vary from browser to browser, so check your browser settings for more info.

  • Some browsers also have a privacy setting called “Do Not Track,” which we support. This setting is another way for you to decide whether we use info from our partners and other services to customize Shopavize for you. 

  • Finally, your mobile device has settings that allow you to control whether ad partners can use information about your use of mobile applications to show ads to you.  On iOS devices, this setting is called “Limit Ad Tracking” and on Android devices, this setting is called “Opt out of Ads Personalization.”
