We use automatic data collection tools like cookies, embedded web links and widgets (collectively, "web tools"). These web tools collect certain information that your browser or your mobile device sends to Scosche Websites and Scosche Products, such as computer IP address, browser type and service provider. In addition, Scosche may use small pieces of code called web beacons. Web beacons allow a website to transfer or collect information through a graphic image request. This allows Scosche to collect information such as the address of the page you are visiting, the address of the referring page you previously visited, what browser or mobile device you are using, and your display settings. Scosche and its advertising partners use web beacons, for example, to find out if advertising on Scosche websites and other websites that contain Scosche ads is effective, or if certain videos on Scosche websites are being viewed.
Scosche may use web tools for the following purposes:
To identify the user's country and language and distinguish you from other users of Scosche websites.
To save your registration information for future use on Scosche websites and services.
To allow customer surveys to appear or not appear to customers.
To optimize your browsing experience by preloading certain features of Scosche websites and services on future visits to make loading times faster and more efficient.
To understand how you use and interact with Scosche websites and services.
To customize and provide you with a more personal experience when visiting Scosche websites or our advertising partners' websites or when using Scosche Products.

You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser or mobile device. However, some features of Scosche Websites and Scosche Products may not work as intended if you disable cookies, and areas that require registration or authentication and Scosche Website store transactions will not be accessible.
Many advertising companies are members of the Digital Advertising Alliance or the Network Advertising Initiative and provide opt-out choices on their websites.
In that case, if you click on or view a Scosche ad on one of our advertising partners' websites and are redirected or go to the Scosche website, the advertising partner may place a web beacon on your browser so that we can track advertising conversions (which let us know if an ad was effective). These web beacons will appear on your browser regardless of whether you have refused to accept cookies or indicated that you do not want to be tracked on Scosche Websites or on the Internet generally. However, they are only used by Scosche for the limited purpose of tracking advertising conversions and do not identify you personally in any way.

To avoid tracking by these third parties, you can exercise the choices above to reject cookies, although Scosche has no control over and cannot confirm whether these third parties honor the do not track browser choices you have made.
We strive to maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the information collected by Scosche Websites and Scosche Products. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security; any transmission is at your own risk.
It is important to note that if you use a computer or device that can be accessed by others, other people may be able to access unencrypted Personal Information. If you do not want your information to be available to others, exercise caution when using public computers or devices or when using any computer or device to which users unauthorized by you may have access.
We recommend that you take every precaution in protecting your Personal Information when you are on the Internet. For example, change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers when creating passwords, and make sure you use a secure browser. You should also be aware that names that you give your Wi-Fi-enabled devices, home networks and services (also known as "friendly names") may be detectable by others outside your home, so you should not use Personal Information as part of your friendly names.
