When you visit our websites or use our online services we may collect certain information through automatic means, such as logging. This may include information such as your IP address, type of browser and operating system used, information regarding your internet service provider or the type of device you used to access our websites, date and time of such access, pages you visit, and other sites you may visit that link to or from our websites. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address.

We may also collect information through the use of cookies, clear gifs, device identifiers, or other identifiers or technologies, including as those technologies may evolve over time (collectively, “Data Technologies”). We may use Data Technologies to identify and track your visits and use of our websites, to customize your experience on our websites or online services, to “remember” your passwords, and for storing information or settings. We also use Data Technologies to save preferences and session data entered by you while using iShip Shipping services, access information of registered users at login, to improve the iShip Shipping services and for other internal business purposes.

We may use Flash LSOs and other technologies to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our websites and online services. If you do not want Flash LSOs stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also go to the Global Storage Settings Panel and follow the instructions (which may explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash LSOs (referred to as “information”), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and how to block Flash LSOs that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time). Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications.
