Because non-personal information cannot identify you or be tied to  you in any way, there are no restrictions on the ways that we can use or share  non-personal information. What is personal information and how is it collected?  Personal information is information that identifies you as an individual, such as  your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, and fax number.  We may collect personal information from you in a variety of ways: • When you  send us an application or other form • When you conduct a transaction with us,  our affiliates, or others • When we collect information about in you in support of a  transaction, such as credit card information • In some places on this web site you  have the opportunity to send us personal information about yourself, to elect to  receive particular information, to purchase access to one of our products or  services, or to participate in an activity. 


Yes, we may use cookies and related technologies, such as web beacons, to  collect information on our web site. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your  hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or  deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can  only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of  the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you  time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a  specific page. For example, if you register with us, a cookie helps Soda And  Sunshine to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies  the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses,  shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Soda And Sunshine  website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can  easily use the features that you customised. A web beacon is a small graphic  image that allows the party that set the web beacon to monitor and collect  certain information about the viewer of the web page, web-based document or e mail message, such as the type of browser requesting the web beacon, the IP  address of the computer that the web beacon is sent to and the time the web  beacon was viewed. Web beacons can be very small and invisible to the user, but,  in general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page or e-mail, including  HTML based content, can act as a web beacon. We may use web beacons to  count visitors to the web pages on the web site or to monitor how our users  navigate the web site, and we may include web beacons in e-mail messages in  order to count how many messages sent were actually opened, acted upon or  forwarded.
