We use the following types of cookies on our Services:
Strictly Necessary Cookies. These types of cookies enable you to order products and receive information or services from our Services.
Performance Cookies. Performance cookies enable us to analyze the performance and design of our Services and detect errors. For example, this type of cookie allows us to recognize repeat visitors to our website and show which section of the website are accessed most frequently and how much time visitors spend on each page.
Functional Cookies. These cookies allow us to enhance and personalize your experience. For example, we may use these to identify the content you previously viewed on a LeapFrog website, your online order history, items you placed in a wish list or shopping cart or the nickname or device profile name you created when registering on one of our websites, web-connected applications or web-connected devices.
Advertising Cookies. We, or a service provider operating on our behalf, may place targeted advertising cookies on your computer so we can show you LeapFrog banner ads when you visit other, third party websites. We may use these cookies or web beacons to collect non-personal, anonymous information from you while you visit our websites or other websites participating in the same network. Our targeted advertising cookies collect anonymous information; however, if you have a registered account with us, the information collected by us using our targeted advertising cookies may be associated with your registered account. This information is then used to display advertisements about goods and services more likely to be of interest to you when you visit those other websites.
We may also use local shared objects, otherwise known as flash cookies. Flash cookies are similar to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your computer and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences or to display content, such as videos. However, these objects are stored in different parts of your computer from ordinary browser cookies.
Our Services and e-mail communications may contain electronic images known as web beacons which generally work in conjunction with cookies. We may use web beacons to bring together information we collect about you. The following are examples of how we may use web beacons:
- Count the number of people visiting our websites or using our LeapFrog Services;
- Identify which pages visitors have viewed and for how long;
- Determine how successful a specific marketing campaign or competition has been and whether they result in sales;
- Establish interest levels for particular items or aspects of our Websites or Services; or
- Understand how popular a particular product or service is, how interest levels vary between LeapFrog products and other similar website usage data.
When used in an e-mail, web beacons can tell us:
- The time the e-mail was opened,
- If and how many times it was forwarded,
- What links customers click on from within the e-mail message.
