How and Why We Collect Information
A cookie is a small data file stored by your web browser on your computer. Cookies enable you to place an order on our Site. They also allow us to enhance and personalize your online shopping experience, so the information you receive is more relevant to you.
- Remember what items are in your shopping cart.
- Recognize you when you return to our Site.
- Speed up your checkout, if you have created an account on our Site.
- Study how our customers navigate through our Site, and which products they request in site searches.
- Deliver personalized marketing.
We also use pixel tags to tell us what parts of our Site you have visited and to measure the effectiveness of any searches you may do on our Site. Pixel tags also enable us to send you email in a format you can read and let us know when you have opened an email message from us.
We may also contract with third party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. To do this, they will collect anonymous information about your visits to our Site and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to our Site and to other web sites to target advertisements. These targeted advertisements may appear on other web sites that you visit. This anonymous information is collected through the use of a cookie or pixel tag. No personally identifiable information is collected in this process.
We may also obtain information from other companies that can enhance our existing customer information to improve the accuracy and add to the information we have about our customers (e.g., adding address information). This may improve our ability to contact you and improve the relevancy of our marketing by providing better product recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you.

Recipients of our email gift cards will receive an email notifying them of the gift and instructing them how to redeem it.
We may also send promotional emails about products, special offers, services or events we believe may be of interest to you. It is our intent to send promotional emails only to those who wish to receive them. We provide instructions on how to unsubscribe in each email, and within the My Account section of FishUSA.
