Hallmark kitchen designs use “cookies,” which are small text files placed on your hard disk by a web server. Cookies contain text that can be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. That text often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your computer, but may contain other information as well. Here is an example of the text stored in a cookie that Hallmark kitchen Designs might place on your hard disk when you visit one of our web sites: E3732CA7E319442F97EA48A170C99801
Storing your Preferences and Settings.
If you enter your city or postal code to access your account, we may store that city or postal code in a cookie so that you will see the relevant local information when you return to the site. This can save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information every time you visit the site.
Sign-in and Authentication.
When we display online advertisements to you, we will place one or more persistent cookies on your device in order to recognize your device each time we display an ad to you. Because we serve advertisements on our own web sites as well as those of our advertising and publisher partners, we are able to compile information over time about the types of pages, content and ads you, or others who are using your computer, visited or viewed. This information is used for many purposes, for example, it helps us try to ensure that you do not see the same advertisements over and over again. We also use this information to help select and display targeted advertisements that we believe may be of interest to you.
Information We Collect
Hallmark Kitchen Designs collects many kinds of information in order to operate effectively and provide you the best products, services and experiences we can. Some of this information you provide directly to us. Some of it we get by observing how you interact with our products and services. Some of it is available from other sources that we may combine with the data we collect directly. Regardless of the source, we believe it’s important to treat that information with care and to help you maintain your privacy.

How we collect:
We use a number of methods and technologies to gather information about how you use our sites and services, such as:
Web forms, such as when you type information into a registration form or type a search query into a search box.

Software installed on your computer or other device, which may send back information needed to operate, update or improve that software.
How We Use Your Personal Information
Hallmark Kitchen Designs uses the information we collect to operate, improve and personalize the products and services we offer. Information collected through one Hallmark Kitchen Designs service may be combined with information collected through other Hallmark Kitchen Designs services to give you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with us. We may also supplement this with information from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies to help us derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your geographic area.
We also may use the information to communicate with you, for example, informing you when a subscription is ending or letting you know when you need to take action to keep your account active.
