6. CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
REI does not share or otherwise disclose Personal Information provided to us with other business for marketing uses. Our Websites do NOT use any technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and from across third-party websites or other online services (e.g., behavioral tracking).
REI does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, Safari allows you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
Third parties that have content embedded on REI’s websites such as a social feature or a video clips may set cookies on a user’s browser and/or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a specific REI website from a certain IP address. Third parties cannot collect any other personally identifiable information from REI’s websites unless you provide it to them directly.

8. LINKS TO OTHER SITES
The Sites may contain links to other websites for your convenience and information. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of linked websites. Please refer to the privacy policies of those third-party websites.
We store your Personal Information in different ways, including in paper and electronic form. The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We take reasonable measures to ensure that your Personal Information is stored safely to protect it from interference, misuse, loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure, including electronic and physical security measures.
