WHAT WE COLLECT
We get information about you in a range of ways.
Information You Give Us. We collect information about you to provide our services. In order for us to best provide our services, we may collect your name, postal address, email address, phone number, fax number, username, password, demographic information (such as your gender and occupation) as well as any other information you may elect to give to us directly in connection with your use of our Sites. Depending on how you interact with the Sites, the personal information we collect from you may vary. When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain your Order Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information. Similarly, we retain the Personal Information you provide unless or until you request that we delete it.
Information We Get From Others. We may get information about you from other sources. We may add this to information you have given to us via the Sites.
Information Automatically Collected. When you use the Sites, your device is automatically providing information to us so we can respond and customize our services to you. The type of information we collect by automated means generally includes technical information about your computer, such as your IP address or other device identifier, the type of device you use, and operating system version. Therefore, we may automatically log information about you and your computer. For example, when visiting a Site, we may log your computer operating system type, browser type, browser language, the website you visited before browsing to our Site, pages you viewed, how long you spent on a page, access times and information about your use of and actions on our Site.
Cookies. We may log information using "cookies." Cookies are small data files stored on your computer or mobile device that relate to a website you have visited or used. We may use both session cookies (which are stored in temporary memory, are not retained after a browsing session ends, and do not collect information from a user’s device) and persistent cookies (which remain in a browser’s sub-folder after the user closes their browser, are activated again once the user visits the online location that created the particular cookie, and remain for the duration period set within the cookie’s file or until deleted) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Sites. Cookies may help make the Site more useful to you and tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.
Promotions, advertisements or other third-party content displayed on the Sites may also contain cookies, and HomeState does not have access to or control over information collected by outside advertisers when a user clicks on any such promotions or advertisements.

Pixel Tags. “Pixel Tags” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer's hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use Pixel Tags (also referred to as web beacons or clear GIFs), in connection with our services to, among other things, track the activities of users of our services, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage of our services. We and our third-party service providers may also use Pixel Tags in HTML emails to our customers, to help us track email response rates, to identify when our emails are viewed, and to track whether our emails are forwarded.
Do Not Track. HomeState understands that some users may have enabled a “do not track” feature or other mechanism intended to provide consumers with a choice regarding the collection of their personally identifiable information; however, consistent with our rights under applicable law, our Sites do not support or respond to do-not-track requests or other signals sent from a web browser.
