How does San Antonio Shoemakers® collect your information?

Information we automatically collect from the Website

We collect information provided to us through unique identifiers (such as IP Address or your mobile device advertising identifier) or by your browser when you view the Website or use the Services. This information can include information regarding your Internet service provider; the type of browser you use; your operating system; the device from which you connected to the Service; the time and date of access; the Website pages you viewed; the time you spent at our Website; the sites you visited just before and just after our Website; whether you placed any products in your shopping cart but did not purchase; and other information that does not personally identify you. SAS uses this information to understand traffic and downloads on our website, enabling us to improve the website, provide the best online experience possible and improve our product offerings and our customer service. We track this information using cookies, or small text files which include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are a feature of web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.) software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a site. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a user's web browser on one site to simplify subsequent interactions with that site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transaction on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from site to site and to complete transactions over the Internet.

Cookies are sent to a user’s browser from our servers and are stored on the user’s computer hard drive. Sending a cookie to a user’s browser enables us to collect Technical Information about that user and keep a record of the user’s preferences when utilizing our services. For example, SAS may use cookies to collect information regarding your visits to the Website and the products you have viewed.

SAS may use both [persistent and session] cookies; persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your session and until you delete them, while session cookies expire when you close your browser.

If you wish to disable Cookies, you may do so by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser,. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for further information. Remember that if you disable cookies it is likely to affect how the Online Services work and you may not be able to access or use certain areas of our website or functionality. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will place cookies when you log on to the Online Services.

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. SAS and the Online Services do not currently recognize browser DNT signals.

SAS may use your data for the following purposes:

  • To provide and improve the Online Services and to help us communicate with you, to administer your account and to process payments. For example, in addition to using your information for order processing, we may also use the provided information to communicate to you about your order (such as shipping, returns, or order status), to solicit feedback, to provide technical support or to update you about any news (e.g., company updates, promotions, sales, etc.) concerning SAS, our products and the products and services of third parties. We do this to ensure we are providing you with the best service and products available to you and, most importantly, to build a relationship with you.

  • To customize content, user experiences and advertising, monitor and analyze the Online Services usage and trends. We may share aggregated information on usage behavior (“Technical Information”) (such as order patterns or order preferences) for market research or other purposes. This aggregated information will not contain any personally identifiable information of any individual. We reserve the right to use Technical Information in our discretion and to disclose such Technical Information to our partners, advertisers and other third parties.
