When you log on, our server looks up your membership details in our database and sends them to your computer in the form of a "cookie". This cookie is used by our software for the purpose of detecting that you have logged on and are authorised to send cards and visit any member-only parts of the Site, for example. The cookie contains personally identifiable information that you provided during registration, such as your name and e-mail address. The cookie is a "session" (as opposed to "permanent") cookie, and when you exit your browser session this cookie is automatically deleted (which is why you have to log on again every time you revisit the Site). If you check the box for automatic logon, our server sends your computer a "permanent" cookie. The cookie will log you on automatically every time you come to the Site until you log off or clear your cookies.

We also use marketing cookies that record your visit to the Site and help us to track whether or not you make a purchase or subscribe to our service. We use this information to monitor the effectiveness of our marketing and to improve our marketing efforts. No personally identifiable information is recorded by these marketing cookies, and they are automatically deleted after 60 days.

Like many companies, we use Google Analytics to count the number of unique and return visitors to our Site, and to track what parts of the Site are visited. These cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information about you, and they are used only to help us improve our website and our service to you. We may also use cookies for similar analytic purposes in our Applications (such as our iPad apps). We only use this analytic data in aggregate, meaning that we look at a summary of the data on a collective basis, not on an individual basis.
