Cookies allow KISSUSA.com to recognize your computer while you are on its website and help customize your online experience. Cookies are also useful in allowing more efficient log-in for users, tracking transaction histories and preserving information between sessions. The information collected from cookies may also be used to improve the functionality of the website. Most web browser applications (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer) have features that can notify you when you receive a cookie or prevent cookies from being sent. If you disable cookies, however, you may not be able to use certain personalized functions of this website. We do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies.

Cookie Policy: By consenting to the use of cookies, you agree that we can store and access cookies as described here. A cookie is a text file that can be stored and accessed from your device when you visit one of our websites (the "Sites"), to the extent that you consent, allowing us to distinguish your device from other users of the Sites. For more information visit www.youronlinechoices.eu. We may use cookies to identify you and track your visits to our Sites, to control access to certain content, to protect the Sites, and to process your requests. We may contract with third-party service providers to track data about usage of, and volume of traffic on our Sites. These third-party providers may use persistent cookies to help us improve user experience, manage site content, and track user activity. We also may use third-party service providers to email users who provided us with their contact information, and the third-party service providers may drop cookies on users’ devices to help improve email communications. All data that these third-party service providers collect on behalf of KISS will be used solely by or on behalf of us and will be shared externally only on an anonymous, aggregated basis.

The following cookies may be used:

Strictly necessary cookies are essential to enable you to access our Sites and utilize features. Without these cookies, certain services you request, such as registering for an account, cannot be provided.

Performance cookies collect information about how visitors use our Sites, for instance, which pages visitors visit most often. We use this information to improve our Sites and to aid us in investigating problems raised by visitors. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor.

Functionality cookies allow our Sites to recall choices you make and provide more personal features. For instance, a functional cookie can be used to remember the text size, languages and other aspects of the site that are alterable, and provide customization during future visits to the Sites. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting cookies are used to deliver advertisements and promotions relevant to you and your interests. They collect information about your browsing habits. Targeting cookies are linked to services provided by third parties, such as 'like' and 'share' buttons and advertisements, so that they can make their advertising more relevant to you when you visit their websites.

To refuse or withdraw your consent to the use of cookies, you can set your internet browser to reject the setting of all or some cookies and to warn you when a cookie is placed on your device. You can find more specifics on how to do so in your browser ‘help,’ ‘tool,’ or ‘edit’ section or visit www.allaboutcookies.org. Do note that if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including strictly necessary cookies) you may not be able to access or use all or part of certain functions of our Sites. You can manually delete previously-stored cookies at any time, but this will not prevent our Sites from placing cookies on your device in the future, unless and until you adjust your internet browser setting as described above. For more information about user profiles and targeting/advertising cookies, visit www.youronlinechoices.eu if you are located in the European Union.
