Direct Interactions: From your use of and interaction with us through the Website, submission of registrations and forms, or sales inquiries and transactions.
Publicly Available Data / Data from Third Parties: Data from Automated Interactions on non-Sticker Factory websites, or other data you may have made publicly available, such as social media posts, or data provided by third party sources, such as marketing opt-in lists, or data aggregators.
Automated Interactions: From the use of technologies such as electronic communication protocols, cookies, embedded URLs or pixels, or widgets, buttons and tools.
Although The Sticker Factory’s use of Automated Interactions may change over time as technology evolves, the following descriptions are designed to provide you with additional detail about The Sticker Factory Ltd. current approach to information collected from Automated Interactions.
Electronic Communications Protocols: As is true when you visit most websites and apps, The Sticker Factory Ltd. may automatically receive information from you as part of the communication connection itself, which often consists of network routing information (where you came from), equipment information (browser type or device type), your IP address (which may identify your general geographic location or company), and date and time.
The Sticker Factory Ltd. may also automatically receive and record information about your interaction with our Website, such as clickstream information (when each Sticker Factory webpage was visited and how much time was spent on the page), how often you access the Website, performance data, aggregate usage, or general geo-location data.
Cookies: The Sticker Factory Ltd. hosted server will query your browser to see if there are "cookies" previously set by our website. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web server to store on a Web browser so it can later be read back from that browser. Cookies may collect information, including a unique identifier, user preferences, profile information, membership information, and general usage and volume statistical information. Cookies may also be used to collect individualised website use data, provide electronic personalisation, or conduct and measure the effectiveness of advertising in accordance with this Policy. Some cookies may remain on users' computers after they leave the website. While the majority are set to expire within 1-24 months of your last visit to the website that set the cookie, others may not expire because of their nature, like cookies that remember opt-out preferences.
Your browser may provide you with information and control over cookies. You can set your browser to alert you when a cookie is being used, and accept or reject the cookie. You can also set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. Users can generally disable the cookie feature on their browser without affecting their ability to use the site, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential security feature necessary for transaction completion. Cookies, however, are important to the proper functioning of a site, and disabling them may degrade your experience and interfere with website features and customisations.
The Sticker Factory Ltd. may engage one or more third party service providers to track and analyse both individualised usage and volume statistical information from interactions with our website. The service provider(s) may set cookies on behalf of The Sticker Factory Ltd. The Sticker Factory Ltd. also uses other third party cookies to provide advertising and personalisation services in accordance with this Policy, and to track the performance of The Sticker Factory Ltd. advertisements utilising e-mail marketing.
Managing Cookie Preferences: You may access or change your cookie preferences at any time using your browser settings. Please see the "Cookies and Do Not Track" section below for opt-out options.

You can prevent Flash cookies from being placed by visiting the Adobe Website Storage Settings. Alternatively you can download free software to manage Flash Cookies.
Embedded URLs: The Sticker Factory Ltd. may use a tracking technique that employs embedded URLs to allow use of our website without cookies. Embedded URLs allow limited information to The Sticker Factory website, but are not associated with Personal Information and are not used beyond the session.
Embedded Pixels and Similar Technologies: On the website and third party social media and advertising channels, The Sticker Factory Ltd. may use embedded pixel technologies for the purposes of identifying unique user visits (as opposed to aggregate hits) and for advertising purposes. In addition, embedded pixels or other technologies may be used in e-mails and our online display advertising to provide information on when the e-mail or ad was opened to track marketing campaign responsiveness; information collected using these technologies may be associated with the recipient's e-mail address.
The pixel technology used on our website, social media and advertising channels enable the synchronisation of internal unique identifiers between The Sticker Factory Ltd. and our third party partners to facilitate interest-based advertising. The social media and advertising channels we use include, but are not limited to, Google, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. Please see the "Cookies and Do Not Track" section below for opt-out options.
Physical Location: We may collect the physical location of your device for purposes consistent with this Policy, such as to provide you with personalised location-based services or content.

Cookie-based tools that allow you to opt-out of Interest Based Advertising prevent The Sticker Factory Ltd. and other participating advertising technology companies from serving interest-related ads to you on behalf of The Sticker Factory Ltd. They will only work on the Internet browser on which they are deposited, and they will only function only if your browser is set to accept third-party cookies. These cookie-based opt-out tools may not be as reliable where (e.g., certain mobile devices and operating systems) cookies are sometimes automatically disabled or removed.
