Device and browsing information and other Internet activity information. We use automated means to collect information about your phone, tablet, computer, or device, and online browsing activity. This information may include IP addresses, unique device identifiers, cookie identifiers, device and browser settings and information, and Internet service provider information. We use a variety of means to collect this information, including the following:
Clear GIFS: We may also collect information through the use of clear gifs (also called Pixel Tags, Web beacons, and Web bugs) on our Website and in selected email messages we send to you. These are tiny graphic files, not visible to the human eye, that help us analyze our customers’ online behavior and measure the effectiveness of our Website and our advertising. We work with third-party service providers that help us track, collect, and analyze this information, which may include your device’s IP address, your browser type, your operating system, date and time information, such as when you receive, open, or click a link in an email message from us, and other technical information about your device. We may also track certain information about the identity of the website you visited immediately before coming to our site. We also work with third-party service providers that use tracking technologies to deliver promotions on our behalf across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your visits to our Website and your interaction with our advertising and other communications.
Do Not Track Signals: When a user turns on the Do Not Track preference in their web browser, the browser sends a message to websites requesting them not to track the user. At this time, we do not respond to Do Not Track browser settings or signals.

Where you have provided consent to Violet to collect and process your personal data, you may withdraw it at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing that was carried out prior to withdrawing it. To withdraw your consent, please contact [email@example.com]. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose(s) to which you originally consented unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for further processing that override your interests, rights, and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. Whenever you withdraw consent, you acknowledge and accept that this may have a negative influence on the quality of our Website.
We reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee if your request to exercise one of your rights is unreasonable or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such a case.
