  • Your browsing behaviour, which includes your browser and device characteristics;
  • The date and time you visited;
  • The pages or services you accessed; and
  • Any referring URLs, or sites that directed you to our Site.

    If, during your visit, you participate in a survey, send an e-mail, or perform some other transaction (see Section III) online, the following additional information will be collected:

    Aleah’s Boutique, like many internet and catalogue retailers, employs other companies and individuals to perform specific functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivery of packages, mail and e-mail, address hygiene, credit card processing services, or research that improves the quality of services or offers provided to you. These providers have access to the information that they require to perform their functions but are prohibited by us from using that information for any other purposes. You may, however, “opt-out” of this use of your information at any time, but doing so may impair our ability to provide you with proper service and to process your orders.
