Third Party Advertising Technology

These tools and technologies collect and analyze certain types of information, including cookies, IP addresses, device and software identifiers, referring and exit URLs, onsite behavior and usage information, feature use metrics and statistics, usage and purchase history, MAC Address, mobile unique device ID, and other similar information.

The third party analytics companies who collect information on our site may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other websites and/or other online or mobile products and services relating to your activities across their network of websites as well as online and/or mobile products and services. Many of these companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies.

Security

Software for Less uses reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect information under our control. This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. All account information you use or supply on Software for Less’s Web site when ordering or tracking products is secure. We use advanced encryption technology to protect you from unauthorized use of information supplied on our Web site.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is an industry standard security protocol used to encode sensitive information such as credit card numbers that pass between your personal computer and Software for Less’s e-Commerce site. SSL works by creating a temporary, shared “key” or session that lets only the computers on either end of a transmission scramble and unscramble information. The SSL transmission is indecipherable by any individuals or servers that relay the message between the sender and the receiver. When your web browser enters Software for Less’s secure Web site, our server hosting the site acknowledges your web browser with a “server hello.” In return, your browser responds with a “client hello.” This communication allows for the browser and server to determine the level of encryption they both support and will use. Once “hellos” are exchanged, your browser will ask for Software for Less’s “digital certificate.” The certificate acts as our “commerce ID” to ensure you that the transactions are between you and Software for Less. Companies receive digital certificates from a Certificate Authority, such as RSA Data Security Inc. or VeriSign Inc. A Certificate Authority verifies a company’s identification and then issues a unique certificate as proof of identity. Next the browser and the server create a “master key.” This master key is a codebook that both sides use to encode and decode transmissions. Only your browser and our server share that master key which is good only for that particular session. The unique key allows your browser and our server to exchange sensitive information in a way third parties can’t understand. Once your transactions are complete and you leave our secure site, the master key you once held with the server becomes useless. When you reenter the secure site, the hello, digital certificate and master key process start over again.

In addition, we may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart and to gather broad demographic information.
