Information collected automatically

Island Pacific logs IP addresses (a unique number assigned to every computer on the Internet) in order to improve security, analyze trends and administer the Site. We may track your movement within the Site, the pages from which you were referred, access times and browser types. We only use this information in aggregate and do not link it to you personally. To gauge the effectiveness of our Site, we do collect some generic information about our visitors. Our web servers automatically recognize a visitor's domain name, the web page from which a visitor enters our Site, which pages a visitor visits on our Site, and how much time a visitor spends on each page. We may use anonymous tracking technologies to collect, store and sometimes track information for statistical purposes and to improve the products and services we provide. We aggregate this information and use it to evaluate and improve our Site. We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs (sometimes called "web beacons"), and/or third party sources for instance to verify your address or update your information and to create a "profile" of your preferences.

"Cookies" are small pieces of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. Visitors to the site are sent anonymous cookies to keep track of their browsing patterns and build up a demographic profile. We use session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our Site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. In addition, any visitor who has clicked on an Islandpacificmarket.com advertisement on another site that links to Islandpacificmarket.com will be sent a cookie that will allow us to analyze advertising effectiveness and manage our relationship with affiliate sites. These are called persistent cookies because they do not expire when you close your browser. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file. Persistent cookies are used to customize the content of certain sections of the website and enable us to track and target the interests of our users and to enhance the experience on our Site. If you reject cookies, you may still use our Site, but your ability to use some areas of our Site may be limited.

Some of our Web pages and e-mail updates may contain electronic images called clear gifs, Web beacons, or pixel tags. On Web sites, clear gifs allow us to count visitors who have viewed our pages. In promotional e-mail messages or newsletters, they allow us to count how many subscribers have read them, which provides important statistical information about the articles, features or activities of most interest. They are not used to access personally identifiable information.
