We and our third-party service providers and partners may collect information relating to analytics, customer trends and patterns and use cookies and software tools to measure Portal usage and related information. If you are requesting Retailer Information and/or submitting Feedback to us through the Portal, we may also use cookies to keep track of the request from one web page to another. We retain both the cookie information and/or the information you provide to us online to complete a request for Retailer Information by you or to keep historical records of your past requests. In other cases, we may retain the cookie and/or online information you give us for your use in subsequent sessions and requests.
