COOKIES, WEB BEACONS, AND HOW WE USE THEM
A “cookie” is a small data file stored by your Web browser on your computer or mobile device [hard drive]. It allows us to recognize your computer (but not specifically who is using it) upon entering our site by associating the identification numbers in the cookie with other customer information you have provided us. That customer information is stored on our secured database. A “web beacon” or “pixel tag” or “clear gif” is typically a one-pixel image, used to pass information from your computer or mobile device to a website.
You will receive promotional emails from us only if you have asked to receive them. If you do not want to receive email from Gothic Journal you can click on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any email communication sent by us. Please allow us 3 business days from when the request was received to complete the removal, as some of our promotions may already have been in process before you submitted your request.
We’ll be happy to provide additional information or answer any questions.
