1.Who’s This Policy For And What Does It Cover?
You may see other privacy notices when we collect your Personal Information for certain purposes. Those notices supplement this Policy.
By using the Service, you consent to the practices described in this Policy.
2.What is “Personal Information”?
When we say “Personal Information,” we mean information that can reasonably be linked to a particular individual or their household, as defined in laws that may apply to you. Generally speaking, your Personal Information includes your unique identifiers (full name, phone number, email address, user name, etc.), and information about your characteristics, conditions or behavior that is associated with one of your identifiers or could otherwise reasonably be linked to you.
“Non-Personal Information,” on the other hand, has been anonymized, aggregated or de-identified such that it cannot reasonably be linked to a particular individual or their household.
3.Personal Information We Collect And How We Collect It
The categories of Personal Information that we may collect include:
- Identifiers, such as first and last name, address, email address, phone number, user name, signature, IP address, cookie ID and similar information.

We may share Personal Information with contractors, service providers, and other vendors who assist or support us in providing the Services. Examples of these third party services may include hosting our site, storing data, performing analytics, processing payments, or sending marketing communications. Our agreements with vendors prohibit them from retaining, using or disclosing the Personal Information we share with them for any purpose other than providing services to us.
Analytics, Social Media and Advertising Partners
We may share your Personal Information with analytics providers, advertising networks, or social media companies to measure performance of our Service or marketing efforts, offer social media features, or deliver interest-based advertising. This sharing may involve the use of browser cookies and similar technologies placed through our Service by our partners, as explained here.

7.Cookies And Online Tracking
What Are Cookies?
A browser cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores in your device’s browser. It holds information that the site uses to function properly, remember your preferences, or personalize your experience. A typical cookie contains a cookie ID, which is a unique string of characters used to identify your browser during the browsing session, or in some cases, during subsequent browsing sessions. Cookies, cookie ID’s and similar pieces of data may be considered Personal Information (Identifiers or Internet Activity) under applicable law.
Other online technologies, similar to cookies, may allow users to be identified and tracked across multiple browsing sessions, and in some cases tracked across different websites and online services for marketing or advertising purposes. These technologies include, but are not necessarily limited to, pixels, web beacons and scripts (collectively with browser cookies, “Cookies”).
How Cookies May Be Used On Our Services
Our Service uses “first party” Cookies, which are set by our web domain (elainaray.com). Our Service also uses some “third party” Cookies, which are set by other web domains associated with our vendors or partners. This means that, when you visit our site, your browser may automatically connect to our partner’s web server, as well as ours, and provide our partner with access to your online identifiers and information about how you use our Site.
Cookies are used on our Service for the following purposes:
- Essential: Essential Cookies are necessary for site security and to enable you to move around our site and use its features.
- Preferences. Preference Cookies allow us to remember your preferences and personalize the Service during a browsing session or across browsing sessions.
- Analytics: Analytics Cookies allow us to analyze use of our Site to evaluate and improve performance.
- Marketing: Also known as “Targeting” Cookies, these may be used to display ads or other content based on your interests, and may be used by our partners to track your activity across different online services.
How You Can Block Cookies
You can block, disable or delete cookies at any time by changing the settings in your browser. However, blocking, disabling, or deleting cookies may limit your ability to view all the pages of our Site or other sites. You can find more information about cookies and other options you may have for restricting them at www.cookiesandyou.com/, and www.aboutads.info/choices.
“Do Not Track” Signals
Your browser may offer a Do Not Track (DNT) setting. If you turn that setting on, your browser sends a signal to websites indicating that you don’t want to be tracked over time or across third party sites. We don’t currently respond to these signals because there is not yet a common understanding of how to process them or a consensus on what “tracking” means.
