Cookies and Other Technical Information

Our Services use “cookies” and other similar technology such as “Web beacons.” Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a site.

Web beacons are electronic images that often work in conjunction with cookies.

Our Services use cookies for the following purposes:

  • To identify you when you return to one of our shops or sign-in to your account. This allows us to provide you with product recommendations and display personalized content. For example, if we notice that you are a fan of action and adventure movies, you will be less likely to see products related to comedies on future visits. And if you purchase a phone case from us or browse pages of phone cases in one of our shops, you will be more likely to see phone cases in the emails you receive from us and on our web sites when you return.
  • To keep track of items stored in your shopping cart.
  • To keep track of your specified preferences.
  • To track your orders and process your transactions.
  • To deliver content, including advertisements, relevant to your interests. Our interest-based ads are subject to your preferences as further described here.

  • To prevent fraudulent activity.
  • To improve security.

Cookies allow you to take advantage of some of our shop’s essential features. For instance, if you block or otherwise reject some of our cookies, you will not be able to add items to your shopping cart. For information on how to opt-out of certain cookies, please review the section below entitled Your Choices: Cookies.

By accepting this Privacy Policy, you specifically agree to our use of cookies and Web beacons as described herein.
