Gathering of Non-Personal Information
Like most website operators, we collect information that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. This information is of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We may also collect and store details of how you use Merino Shoe Company, LLC sites. This information may be used to improve the quality of our services. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose.
Gathering of Personal Information
Certain visitors to this site choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide their name and email address. Those who engage in transactions – by purchasing a pair of Merino Shoes, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process and fulfill those transactions. In each case, the information is collected only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the site.
We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and that which you give us voluntarily through participation in surveys and giveaways. This information is used to improve our products and services.
Cookies and Similar Technologies
Cardiff Skate Co. websites may use “cookies” and similar technologies such as local storage, pixel tags, and web beacons. These technologies help us to measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches, to store the contents of your shopping cart, and to identify and track visitors, their usage of Merino Shoe Company, LLC. websites, and their website access preferences.
The information provided by cookies and similar technologies may be automatically stored in log files and used to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior, to personalize user experience, to improve our services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
In addition to the cookies and similar technologies that Merino Shoe Company, LLC may implement when you visit Merino Shoe Company, LLC websites, third parties (including but not limited to Shopify) may also set cookies and similar technologies when you visit Merino Shoe Company, LLC sites. In some cases, that is because we have hired the third party to provide services on our behalf, such as site analytics to help us operate and improve the performance of Merino Shoe Company, LLC sites. In other cases, it is because our web pages contain content from third parties, such as images, videos, social media features, or ads delivered by ad networks. Because your browser connects to those third parties’ web servers to retrieve that content, those third parties may set or read their own cookies or similar technologies on your computer or device, and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services.

Instructions for blocking or deleting cookies varies between web browsers and may be available within the browser’s documentation or privacy statement.
