Objection to data collection
Like most websites, we automatically collect certain information and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
In some of our email messages, A Casa uses what is called a "click-through URL" that is linked to content on our web site. When you click into such a URL address, you pass through our web server before arriving at the actual destination web page. A Casa tracks this "click-through" data to determine interest in particular topics and to measure the effectiveness of communications with our customers. If you wish to avoid having such data collected, simply do not click into any text or graphic links in emails.
In addition, A Casa uses "pixel tags" (tiny image files) that provide information about which areas of our Web sites customers have visited or measure how effective customer searches of our Web site have been. Pixel tags also allow A Casa to send email messages in a format that customers can read. It also allows us to verify that emails have been opened to ensure that A Casa only sends messages that are of interest to our customers.
