Information We Collect
We may collect and store information about you in connection with your use of the Site, including any information you transmit to or through the Site. Such information may be collected in three ways: (1) you voluntarily provide information to us, such as by creating an account, or signing up for email alerts, (2) we collect information automatically, such as through tracking tools like browser cookies, and/or (3) from third parties, such as ad networks or social networks, may provide information to us. Each of these methods is described in more detail below.
We may ask you to provide us with certain categories of information, such as: (1) personally identifiable information, which is information that identifies you personally, such as your first and last name, phone number, gender, birth date, credit card, mailing address, username and password, location and email address (“Personal Information”).
The following are some examples in which you may choose to provide Personal Information to us:
- When you choose to register for an account to use the Site;
- When you purchase something from us or otherwise engage in a transaction with us;
- When you contact us for any reason (e.g. through “contact us” forms), including for technical support or customer service; or
- When you choose to subscribe to our emails or to receive other information from us.
We typically aggregate the data that we collect automatically and use it in statistical form to determine trends among groups of users, rather than using it to identify individuals. If the information collected automatically identifies you as an individual we will treat it as Personal Information.
The following are examples of information we may automatically collect:
- your IP address, UDID or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Site, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier;
- Other cookies also collect information on your behavior by collecting referring URLS (where our visitors come from, which banners they clicked on and which directed them to our website), pages accessed, times of websites visits.
- your Device location;
We may supplement the information we collect directly from you on our Site with outside records from third parties (delivered by advertising agencies, analytics providers, etc.) for various purposes, including so that we can deliver the products you have requested, to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you opportunities that may be of interest to you.
We collect this information:
- when you use a third-party service like Google, or log into the Site via a social media account such as Facebook. For example, social networks may provide us with certain information about you from your profile on their website such as contact information, demographics, and other information you provided to that website such as your photo, user name, and potentially any and all information that you agreed the social network or other party could provide to us.
- when you request information from or provide information to third parties. For example, you may be presented with an option on our Site to receive certain information and/or marketing offers directly from third parties or to have us send certain information to third parties or give them access to it.
We may use various methods and technologies to collect and store information automatically (“Cookies”) when you use or interact with the Site. This information may be stored or accessed using Cookies that may be downloaded to your personal computer, browser, laptop, tablet, mobile phone or other device (a “Device”).
A few of the Cookies include, without limitation, the following (and subsequent technology and methods later developed): Cookies, advertising identifiers (including mobile identifiers such as Apple’s IDFA or Google’s Advertising ID), web beacons, tags, embedded scripts, local shared objects such as HTML5 and Flash (sometimes called "flash cookies"), advertising identifiers (including mobile identifiers such as Apple’s IDFA or Google’s Advertising ID), Browser Fingerprinting, ETags and similar technology in connection with your use of the Site, third party websites and mobile applications. For more information about some of these Cookies click here.
Intended to make the Site work in the way you expect. For example, we use a Cookie that tells us whether you have already signed up for an account.
Authentication, Security, and Compliance
Intended to prevent fraud, protect your data from unauthorized parties, and comply with legal requirements. For example, we use Cookie to determine if you are logged in and to remember you and your Device and for fraud prevention.
Intended to remember information about how you prefer the Site to behave and look. For example, we use a Cookie that tells us information from that provider to facilitate your browsing such as languages preferences, or saving the content of your shopping basket or wish list.
Intended to allow or prevent notices of information or options that we think could improve your use of the Site. For example, we use a Cookie that stops us from showing you the signup notification if you have already seen it.
Intended to make advertising more relevant to users and more valuable to advertisers. For example, such information will allow us to enhance the Site, have a better understanding of the products and services you would prefer, and offer you more personalized communications and/or more personalized content on the Site.
We may include in the Site the possibility to share content with third parties or to let other persons know you browsed our website. Such is the case for instance of “Like” and “Share” functionalities offered by social network platforms (“Facebook”, “Twitter”, etc.)
How We Use Your Information

Or, we may use your information to send you information you requested, or to communicate with you about your account or our relationship: we may contact you about changes to the Site or about service updates. We may also contact you about feedback or about this Policy or website terms. In such case, your information is processed to perform the contract we have with you.

Why and When We Share Your Information
We may share non-Personal Information, such as aggregated user statistics, with third parties such as ad networks and content distributors. For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, advertisements.
Further, we may share your Device Identifiers with third parties along with data related to you and your activities. We do not share your Personal Information that we have collected directly from you on the Site with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes unless you have consented (either through an opt-in our opt-out opportunity) at the time you provide your Personal Information.
- where we have your consent to do so. For example, to provide you with services that you have requested and that we have agreed to provide to you, such as our products, customer services, and third-party social network connectivity;
- as reasonably necessary in order to provide the Site to you (for example, by providing your Personal Information to service providers we may use to fulfill your order) or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Beis, our users, or others;
- as we reasonably believe is permitted by law or regulation or as is necessary to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms of Service [LINK] and/or any other agreement with you;
- We also may share certain limited information, such as Device identifiers, with advertisers and other marketing partners for purposes of gauging the effectiveness of advertising and other marketing strategies; and
- Third Party Service Providers. We may also share your information with our service providers if necessary to enable them to provide services to us, such as hosting the Site, designing and/or operating the Site’s features, network security, tracking the Site’s activities and analytics, payment processing, marketing of the Site, and enabling us to perform other administrative services and functions. We may also share information from or about you with these third-party providers so that they can perform their services or complete your requests. These third-party providers may share information with us that they obtain from or about you in connection with providing their services or completing your requests. Third-party analytics and other service providers may set and access their own Cookies on your Device and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, potentially including Personal Information, about you. We are not responsible for those third-party technologies or activities arising out of them. However, some may offer you certain choices regarding their practices. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of or compliance with any third parties’ opt-out options.
We provide you with choices about whether to provide us with Personal Information and whether it is shared. We generally only ask you for Personal Information that is necessary to provide the service you request. You can choose not to give us the Personal Information we request, as described in the “Information You Choose to Provide” section of this policy [LINK]. However, in some cases, if you decide not to provide the Personal Information we request, to perform a contract or when required by law, you will not be able to receive the product or service you ordered or otherwise register on our websites or other media.
Other examples of your choices include:
- If you have elected to receive direct marketing communications from us, you can change your mind at any time by following the opt out link in any marketing communication that is sent to you.
- You can browse our website without providing any Personal Information. We may collect some limited information automatically, as described above.
- You may be able to limit our sharing of some of this information through your mobile device settings, as further described below.
- You can change your privacy settings on other parties’ websites, such as social networks, which will stop or limit our receipt of information from those other websites. You also may choose not to use social features we make available. If you choose to use these features, you should refrain from posting Personal Information that will be visible to others, such as including your email address in a forum or during a chat.
- You may change your browser settings or take other steps to block, manage, or delete cookies. Not all of our websites and online services currently respond to browser “do not track” signals, so you will need to use your browser settings to effectively manage cookies. In some cases, blocking or disabling cookies may cause our websites not to work as intended and some features may not be available.
- You can limit interest-based advertising by opting out at www.aboutads.info/choices/ or www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. If you are located in Europe, more information is available at www.youronlinechoices.eu/. Please note that opting out does not prevent the display of all advertisements to you.

You can also amend your choices by sending an email to us as detailed in the “How to Contact Us” section below. For example, you can opt out of certain types of processing that we undertake and where any processing is based on your consent, you can withdraw that consent at any time.
Mobile Device Tracking
As of the Effective Date of this policy, Apple and Google offered the owners of devices that use their operating systems (iOS and Android) with options for limiting tracking and targeting in relation to ads. Please note that changing any of these settings does not prevent the display of certain advertisements to you. Beis does not control your device-level opt-out processes and is not responsible for any choices you make through such a mechanism or for the continued availability, accuracy, effectiveness, or location of that mechanism.

Transfer of Your Information
We will transfer your personal information for any of the purposes identified in this policy to our subsidiaries, affiliates, service providers, and business partners that may be located outside of the jurisdiction where you are located. The laws in those jurisdictions may not provide the same level of data protection compared to the laws in your country. However, we will treat your personal information as subject to the protections described in this policy.
If and when we transfer personal information from the EU to entities within our organization located outside of the EU, we rely on standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission to help establish adequate safeguards. If we transfer personal information from the EU to another party located outside the EU, we will rely on a legal framework that provides appropriate safeguards, which could include the standard contractual clauses, binding corporate rules, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield program, or another framework deemed adequate by the European Commission.
