The adobe flash player is not the only technology being used in the ever-shifting online and mobile content environment. HTML5 is an increasingly popular web standard used for presenting content, especially content delivered to mobile devices. HTML is the mark-up language used for the world wide web. almost all web pages you visit on the Internet are based around HTML code. HTML5 is simply the fifth and latest iteration of this mark-up language that allows for more interactive web pages. one of the real benefits of HTML5 is its potential to standardize the highly fragmented rich-media universe. some HTML5 code may allow your response to advertising and other activities to be monitored across websites and such information to be stored on your computer or mobile device. technology solutions that allow users to opt-out of or block this sort of tracking are being developed through browser add-ons and other tools. to the extent the Google Display Network does not allow HTML5 local storage to be used for behavioural advertising, ad delivery, or multi-site advertising, company conforms to that.
use of web beacons: our web pages or e-mail messages may contain a small graphic image called a web beacon, which is sometimes also called a "clear gif", that allows us to monitor and collect certain limited information about our users, such as the type of browser requesting the web beacon, the ip address of the computer that the web beacon is sent to and the time the web beacon was viewed. web beacons can be very small or invisible to the user, but, in general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page or e-mail, including html based content, can act as a web beacon. we may use web beacons to count visitors to our web pages or to monitor how our users navigate our site, and we may include web beacons in e-mail messages in order to count how many messages we sent were actually opened or acted upon. we use web beacons to compile aggregate statistics about our site and our marketing campaigns.
use of ip addresses: an ip address is a number that is assigned to your computer or network when you are linked to the internet. when you request pages from this site, our servers log your ip address. we may use ip address for a number of purposes, such as system administration, to report aggregate information to our business partners or to audit the use of the site. we may associate your ip address with the pd you provide.
we also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources, to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to provide product recommendations and special offers that we think will interest you.

Please note that if you request that we no longer share your email address with certain third party sites, you may still receive Kate Spade advertisements unless you change your settings on that site. because customer lists are often prepared well in advance of an offering (sometimes a few months before the offer is made), you may continue to receive some offers and online advertisements after you send us a request not to use your information for specified marketing purposes. we will process your request as quickly as we reasonably can, but it may not be possible to update our systems immediately. we appreciate your patience and understanding in giving us time to carry out your request.

finally, if you do not exercise your opt-out choices upon registration or otherwise at the time the pd is provided, it may take some time to process your opt-out choices. our systems require time to update, and promotional mailings using pd shared before your opt-out may already be in process. thus, your pd might continue to be shared with third parties for promotional purposes for some time after you make your request, for similar reasons, if your pd is shared with a third party, company largely or completely loses control over how that information is used. thus, even after you have opted out of allowing us to share your pd, you might continue to receive promotional materials from third parties unless and until you duly register your opt-out request with each third party in question.
